    What Is Your Carry Caliber (Your Main SD Firearm)

    What is your main carry caliber.

    This poll does not take into every possible caliber, but most of the popular modern varieties.

    Mine is the .40 S&W

    ((( If you carry a .357 Magnum handgun and use .38 Special for a carry load, please vote .38 Special. The same applies to any other caliber. )))

    9mm Federal HST for me most of the time. .45acp HST when I carry my 1911, which isn't too often due to size/weight.

    I voted .357 Magnum, which is what I carry in my 2 1/4" DAO SP101. I also carry a HK P7 9x19mm, but the SP has been getting the nod recently a lot more often than the P7.

    S&W M-60 .357 snubby in summer, SIG P-220 .45 acp. in winter. If concealment were not the issue then the .45 acp. would be my" Main SD Firearm".

    Mainly .45 acp (1911 or G30) with a 9mm BUG (PPS) and a .380 kt BU-BUG. I somethings carry a .40 or a .38 depending on the dress code or situation

    Mine is a 380 Auto LCP. I live in Florida though. If I want to carry something bigger then I have a PPS in 9mm.
