Are you talking personal weapons only, or are duty weapons included? The .40 Glocks are far and away the most common issue handguns, based on what I've seen and read. The Sig 228/229 is also in the holsters of 10s of thousands of LEOs. If you count the military, add a few thousand more P228s and a few hundred thousand Beretta 92s.
And I think Garry's numbers are only indicative of a very small segment of the gun owning/using population - folks with disposable income, a CCW, and a strong desire for high quality products. :)
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

How do you figure that? Glocks and XD's are widely issued as duty weapons - in the case of Glocks they are probably the most commonly issued firearm for duty use in the entire US.

So, when you factor all of that in together, concealment holster sales would probably be a pretty accurate guide...

With the automobile industry, there are industry figures that tally the number of sales by manufacturer. Though there may be such a thing, I know of no such lists maintained by the firearms industry. Anything short of that will simply be guesses, and even then it's likely to not be broken down by specific model of firearm.
