Today, it is a Springfield Armory TRP Operator 1911 in 10mm.
When I went for my original carry license, I was a revolver only shooter. I was told I needed to choose a semi-auto. My first choice was 10mm. I was quickly talked out of it. I wish I hadn't listened. At the time, 40 S&W was all the rage. Not a bad choice, but...

Switched it up from the M&P 2.0c to the G19. Too many levers on the side of the M&P for me, can't get a good support hand grip.

Glock 19 Gen5 MOS/FS
Tenicor Velo4 (best AIWB holster evarrr)
Holosun 508T V2 in a CHPWS V4 Defender Plate

I like that Tudor! I wear a Rolex Explorer everyday no matter what I'm doing. It has crossed my mind to track down a Pelagos. I'm about half way to needing my first service...need to start putting my pennies away for it LOL.

LOVE the Pelagos, definitely flies under the radar and is very wearable casually. Explorer (216570) is next on my list for 2021, love all the Explorers though. Definitely an enthusiasts watch vs the popularity/prevalence of the subs.

along with a Swiss Army Trekker as my folder and a Mora Garberg on my left side with a 8" para cord monkey fist keychain ;)
I bought one brand new in 1981 I believe. A model 15-2 in 357. Like a dumb kid I sold it to get through the last semester of college. I would rather I had the gun instead of the college. It would be worth more today.

I have a 214270. Secretly I want a 1675 Pepsi...one day. My grail is a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711. Their pricing though has skyrocketed as of late.

I’m impressed every time you post this Pete 😎 (y)
Thanks my friend! I am in a position, whereby I'm a "public figure", that carry's large sum's of cash on a pretty regular basis. I've been handling & building firearm's for decade's. They are tool's, and I have a use for each.

That Redhawk says nuttin' but business SO well!
Thank you, Sir. It replaced my S&W mod. 58 which was "asking to be retired to safe duty"! 😂 I carried it from the early 80's till a few years ago. I LOVE the .41, and have 3. (can you tell I'm an Elmer Keith fan?)

In summer, a Walther PPQ 9mm in a High Noon SlideGuard OWB holster at about 3:30-4:00. In winter, a Walther PPQ .40S&W in the same holster at the same position. Every once in a while, a Sig P365 9mm in a Desantis Mini-Slide OWB at the same position. Always one spare mag in an OWB open top mag carrier, a folding pocket knife, a can of OC spray and a small flashlight.

Lately I've gone back to my old Colt Officers model with a couple of spare mags. Why? Because I like the way it fits.
