XD isn't a manufacturer.
This is a discussion on What is your favorite carry gun? MERGED within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I don't think we have had this poll yet. I know there was a thread about what you carry, but there is no way to ...
1911 (Colts, Kimbers, Wilsons, etc)
I don't think we have had this poll yet. I know there was a thread about what you carry, but there is no way to statistically analyze it. I just kind of want to get a percentage of what people carry. Not going to get into caliber. I think I got all the major manufacturers and to avoid any perception of bias, I am listing them alphabetically.
So, without further ado, what is your favorite EDC gun?

Voted HK..Closely followed by Glock and Springfield (your "XD")

Glock for me, it just is a quick-to-fire handgun and safe with the right holster

Glock here too.
God bless our troops!
While I like the light weight and recoil of my Glock 19, no handgun makes me feel better prepared to face a bad situation than a good 1911. Specifically, a Commander length like my Nighthawk or Colt.
The title said "favorite gun manufacturer", but the poll said "favorite EDC".
I voted Kahr for the EDC question, because of its reliability and size (I have a PM9 and a CW9 for when I can't conceal my Glock)
But based on my recent experience with a brand-new SA EMP that wouldn't eject unfired rounds, I'd answer Springfield Arms for the favorite manufacturer question - lifetime warranty, free shipping to send my gun back for tuning, plus they sent a replacement ILS key and takedown tool (missing from my case when purchased). Can't beat that customer service!
Clinging to guns and God in PA...
Your question is hard to follow---starts out as favorite manufacturer, but poll question goes to favorite carry gun.
My favorite carry gun is my Kel-tec P-3at, it soon could be a Ruger LCP or Kahr 380, just because of the size those 3 guns offer. However in handguns, none of the 3 would be my favorite manufacturer, that would go to Springfield. See the problem.
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.
Right now "Glock", but I just bought a XD 9mm and I'm thinking Springfield is going to the top of the list. wa hooo!!!!

I voted HK, but I also carry Sig and Seecamp and I'd have no trouble with several others. There are many great choices. There are a few I avoid.
I've changed the title of the thread to reflect the polling question.
http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...your-life.html but that thread's long been closed due to age cut-off.
I usually vote 1911, but currently my HKP7 is getting the most carry time as EDC so I voted HK.
Glock 23 then any thing with Sig P attached to the mod#

Didn't see the "anything that isn't plastic" option.......
Steel Kahr K9 since they stated making them. I love a 1911 but don't own one. I need to remedy that one of these days.....
