I'm going to guess that it's in the following order:

(1) 9mm
(2) .357 magnum
(3) .45
(4) .380

The other calibers I'm not too certain.

My two cents...

1. 38/357 - lots of j-frames out there being carried
2. 9mm
3. 380
4. 45
5. 40

Wasn't there a recent poll on this?

If I remember correctly, the last I looked I think 9mm was in the lead, with .45 a close second? Poll may have changed since then.

I would switch .380 with .40 there are a lot of police caring .40. I believe most 1911 guy's leave there man gun in the safe because its too heavy... so I would keep .45 at #4 Actually I bet .22 is above .380. well here's my guess:
1. 38/.357 I believe they need to go together.
2. 9mm
3. .40 a lot of cops
4. .45
5. .22 ghetto
6. .380 even though its a 9mm short you can't use them interchangeably.

Probably 9mm and .40 are the top two.

For me, it's:
9mm
.40 S&W
.38 spcl. +p
.380 ACP

I carry the 9mm about 99.9% of the time. I absolutely LOVE the .40 S&W, but it's a difference of 9+1 in .40 S&W and 13+1 in 9mm.

The most popular bullet diameter.

I'd say the .38 class of bullets is most popular because it covers the 9mm, .38 Special and 357 Magnum.

Then maybe the .45 bullets with the .45ACP leading the pack there.

Followed by the .40 caliber bullets.

Poll results are here, and sorry about not having .44 on there at first...I'm forever on Rugergirl's blacklist for that one :frown:

There have been more results while I'll recompile when I can, but with 140 responses (asking people for their primary carry only, and if they have more than one, to choose one):

9mm: 49 (35%)
.45: 40 (29%)
.40 S&W: 22 (16%)
.38 Special: 12 (9%)
.380 ACP: 9 (6%)

For me, I'm primarily a .380 due to lifestyle, but also occasionally manage a 9mm, and am working on carrying a .45 more regularly.
