Always been a revolver guy and am plenty confident with my SP101. Usually carried the .357 SP but the recent events in the Country have indeed caused me to assess my carry arms.

Still carry the SP but have switched over to the 9mm as a back up to my 9mm Springfield EMP. The EMP is dead nuts accurate and has the factory night sights. 9 plus one of Federal HST and a spare mag ups the fire power. Using the 9mm SP as a BUG allows me to only carry one caliber of ammo.

SP 101 or Colt Defender 1911 if I'm wearing shorts it's a NAA mini revolver 22LR better than nothing

I will carry my LC9 IWB as "deep" conceal carry. Otherwise, I will carry my CZ P-07 or my Sig P228 OWB. Those are open or concealed depending on the shirt or jacket I'm wearing. Both ways to carry are legal here.

I've "upgraded" my warm-weather carry gun from an LCP to an LC9. In addition. I have a .45 XD(m) and extra magazines in my "Plan B Planner" (it looks like a bulky day planner but is actually holds a pistol).

I tend to carry a larger pistol now as well...OWB. I just decide to dress around the gun.

I have two carry guns..

1) My 4" Ruger GP100 SS. With .357 Rounds.
2) My SR 1911.

I can carry either one of them, and I have never needed anything more than that. I feel safe with either one.

I have indeed concealed a 1911 in shorts and a polo.

If I'm not going to be around many people, I carry one of my old 9's (usually my 3913) or my SP101, .357. If I'm going to be in the city, I'll have on one of my 1911's with my XDs for backup.

Warranted or not, I feel better prepared when I'm carrying a .45.

I am right in line with everyone who has reevaluated their carry gun. I carry an LC9s, but I feel "under-gunned" if I am honest. I now feel targeted as opposed to worrying about random acts of violence. I would very much like to get a Glock 19/SR9c/CZ 75 compact sized 9mm or even a compact .45. The weight of a .45 worries me a bit, but effectiveness has the edge. I don't have the means to get another firearm at the moment, but a larger/higher capacity firearm has been on my mind.

Much wisdom in that statement!

I carry a Glock 27 or a Glock 23 or a Glock 22, depending on my schedule for the day. They are all stoked with Federal Hydra-Shok 155 grain ammo.

I wouldnt mind carrying an ar pistol on a sling but its just too much to try and conceal. I usually carry lcp in my pocket almost everywhere but also add my p99 .40 usually or cz p-01 9mm. IWB both of those are really very comfortable most times. Even in shorts and a polo.
