    Question What pistol do you carry?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    What pistol you carry? I'm interested to see what my fellow knife nuts carry to accompany their sharp pointy objects.

    Lets keep it as a simple format

    Brand:
    Model:
    Caliber:
    Accessories:

    I'll start.

    Brand: Springfield Armory
    Model: XD Service (4" in Dark Earth)
    Caliber: .45 ACP (230 grain Speer Gold Dots)
    Accessories: XS Big Dot sites, Crimson Trace Laser Grips, Surefire X300

    When I travel/visit my states, I carry:
    Brand: Springfield Armory
    Model: XD Subcompact (3" in Olive Drab)
    Caliber: 9mm (124 grain +P Speer Gold Dots)
    Accessories: XS Big Dot sites, Crimson Trace Laser Grips


    When I am around town, its easy for me to conceal a service pistol. I usually always have some sort of cover garment on but then again its WA and it rains here a lot. When I travel, its usually to the South, so the subcompact is much easier to conceal under dress shirts etc.

    I love springfields, +1 to you..
    I'm waiting for the XDS to be released so I have something that's easier to conceal with summer clothes

    The SDS is nice, but I just like the idea of more rounds. I can't wait to shoot one though!

    Here in the 'Stan, as an officer finally, I carry an M9.

    In VA, I most often carried a 1911 Commander in 9x19mm.
    When I went to Gunsite last year, I had the old Colt sights replaced with more visible modern sights and a tritium front sight. I also replaced the wooden grips with Alumagrips and had the safety switched out to a lower one. Haven't had a chance to shoot it since the mods- we'll see how I like it once I get back.

    After I get a S&W M&P Pro 9, I'll probably get something smaller and easier to carry like a Kahr CW9.

    Springfield Professional.
    Usually in a Safariland holster, but in a C.HICK holster (special ordered from our previous repwhen I need more concealment, or one of your IWB holsters.
    Alternate is a P7 PSP, again using one of your holsters.
    Working for one of your local dealers is a nice thing.

    Although I have several handguns, my carry rotation is:

    Springfield XD9 Subcompact
    CZ P-01
    One of my 1911's when I can or need to carry that much aptitude
    Keltec P3AT for summer shorts, with a clip attached for pocket carry

    I always carry IWB at about 3:30 to 4:30 depending on the handgun and length - I even carry the Keltec IWB when I'm wearing jeans instead of shorts.

    Brand: Kahr
    Model: PM9
    Caliber: 9mm
    Accessories: hot and spicy ammo

    This is always pocket carried. How about a minimalist Blade-tech kydex pocket holster series?

    Sometimes I carry a Ruger LCP .380, S&W 442 .38, or on rare occasions a Ruger SP-101 2.5" (?) barrel 357 magnum. Always in my right front pocket.


    Kahr PM9.


    Ruger LCP.


    Ruger SP-101.

    Been feeling like this setup is a bit heavy lately. My girlfriend recently got her first gun. A Keltec pf9, and I have to say I'm jealous.. it would be a nice little carry piece.

    Smith&Wesson M&P45 Compact.

    I'm always hearing that a .380 in the pocket is better than the .45 you left at home, so I just make sure I don't leave mine at home.
