    Carry gun=Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II
    Home Defense gun=Ruger GP100, 6" barrel
    Ranger Plinker/ Fun Gun= Ruger MK III bull barrel

    Possible future BUG= Ruger SP101?

    My favorite to fire-definately the GP100

    Every day carry = XD45acp

    House gun = Remmy 870 tactical

    Plinker = Ruger 10/22 modified

    When it all goes to hell = MEGA AR-15
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    Varies through the day, and what I'm doing.

    Steyr M357 default carry (though I'll be getting a Para P12 next week which will take over some of that duty).

    642 as backup/sweatpants "knock around" gun.

    Steyr S9 for when I need something a little bit smaller, but still with a lotta rounds.

    Rohrbaugh R9 when I need a *really* thin gun for dress purposes.

    Para 14-45 for house duty. Well, if you don't include any of the long guns.

    And others to fit in as necessary.

    Most days PT111 or 24/7 Pro DS,

    Sometimes DW 1911

    When I need something to conceal easily Bersa Thunder 380.

    At night one quick access safe is left open with a G19, the PT111, and the 24/7 with an extra mag for each.

    In the woods either a Ruger Redhawk 44 mag or a Liberty SA 44-40, (Colt Clone) if I am just beating around and it isn't hunting season.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Bedside Ruger 9mm

    CC SA 1911 or Taurus .40, depends on how I am dressed, 1911 not so easy to conceal wearing just a T shirt.

    H&K P2000 9mm. all year round but I'm starting to get the itch for an H&K P7M8. I don't know what I'll do then.

    Lets see:

    Primary off-duty: HK P7 w/Trijicons or Glock 36 w/ Glock Night Sights, I usually carry the P7, the Glock is for traveling, especially flying in case the airline "loses" it, its cheaper to replace. Its also in case I find myself somewhere like NJ, where there is some question as to whether LEOSA would allow me to carry expanding ammunition. In that case, I'll just carry 230 grain ball. Most of the time the Glock rests in a lockbox under the seat of my truck. I do carry it from time to time around town, just not that often.

    BUG: S&W 37-2 DAO Airweight .38 Special with CT 405 Laser Grips, on and off-duty.

    Home Defense: Beretta M9A1 w/ 20 round factory mag, Trijicon Night Sights, and a tactical light.

    Duty at part-time PD: S&W M&P45 with Trijicons

    BUG at part-time PD: Same as BUG above

    IDPA: SSR-S&W 681
    SSP-Beretta M9A1 above
    ESP-Same Beretta at the moment
    CDP-S&W M&P45
    ESR-Nothing at the moment, working on that

    I've got a Ruger SP101 that will be added to my primary off-duty list next time we make it to the range. I've also got a Charter Arms Bulldog .44 Special on Layaway that will become my working in the yard/around the house/in the shop gun once I pick it up.

    At the moment that pretty much covers it, aside from long guns.

    I usually carry a HK P2000sk when away from the house, but when I go for a walk or need a tiny gun due to dress, I carry a Seecamp. When my back goes out, I switch to a Sig P232 in a shoulder holster to get the belt off my lower back.
