    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.

    Brand: Springfield Armory
    Model: XD Tactical (5")
    Caliber:.45acp
    Accessories: Streamlight TLR-1

    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.

    Accessories: Galco King Tuck holster, 124grain Hydra-Shoks, xtra mag..

    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.
