    .38+P
    .32 H&R magnum
    .327 magnum
    9mm

    Most days its a revolver - but occasionally the single stack 9mm gets the nod.

    I have both the shield 9mm and the shield 45 now, and I've seen different opinions on what is the best caliber for EDC. I plan on my EDC being the 45, would this be considered overkill?
    Thanks
    Not by me.

    P938 when I'm traveling light... so 9mm there.
    P250-45 or a 1911 most other times... so 45 Auto there.
    Now and then, I'll carry both.

    California has made it more and more difficult to buy what I want. I have promised to not buy any new guns till I'm out of here. So I'm limited to those I already own. The one gun I can shoot well, and make good follow up shots with is a .32 auto. Its about the biggest gun I'd want to pocket carry. It has a 3.75" barrel and a grip I can get all three fingers on. Once I leave CA I think a 9mm Shield is in order. They are physically about the same size. I'll also be adding another 38 snubby. I gave the last one to one of the girls. I have quite a few guns I want but those will become the EDC's. DR

    Most days its a Glock 26, so 9mm. On the days I want to carry more its a 4" 586 in 38 special. I realize its less rounds but they go exactly where I think about putting them almost like magic.

    Mainly, it's a 1911 in 45acp.
    But I do like my FNS 9 when I don't want to mess with an IWB carry (FNS goes in a OWB paddle).

    9mm, although I would love it to be 50 cal. But they don't conceal well.

    .40 S&W most of the time, .357 Rem Mag when I'm feeling lucky.
