I hope this isn't violating any forum rules...if so, delete this link and/or post and let me know, and I'll be happy to pull down the survey as well.
Anyway, in browsing the 'what do you carry' link, I realized that it's very difficult to tell how many people carry what...In some conversations, it seems nearly everyone owns and carries a J-frame, yet in others, no one seems to. So as a learning experience, I assembled a survey to try to correlate some information.
I'm asking things like: Semi/revolver? Caliber? Carry method? Sight types?
What I'm hoping to be able to do is gather the data and be able to give a good picture of what the most common choices are.
Please note this is asking for PRIMARY carry...and if you notice mistakes or have ideas for other questions, let me know early and I can try to update!

For now, adding a PDF of what the results look like. Once we get more data, I'll look at other ways to cross-reference, and how to present it:
Link to results (47 responses, 8/28/09)
in .csv format, (at 49 responses, correcting revolver size in semi-auto responses). I'll use this eventually to analyze what's used for which calibers, etc.
Also, while this doesn't track your information, it seems to:
1) record IP address, possibly to prevent repeated submissions (I haven't figured out how to turn the IP recording off, but I will be removing them from any summaries)
2) Use a cookie to prevent multiple entries. So if you REALLY want to skew it, it's possible...I just don't see why anyone would want to.
