Usual EDC is GP100 3" in Galco Silouette OWB at 4 o'clock, cinched tight to body with stiff leather gun belt. Covered by untucked polo, suit jacket or fleece depending on season and dress code.

I try and rotate monthly. I'm carrying a S&W Model 66 4" in a Mernickle P6DA at 3:30 -4:00 o'clock. Loaded with Remington 158 grain JHP and a SpeedStrip with 158 grain JSP in a strong side pocket.

Next month will be something different.

SP101 Wiley Clapp (love the Novak sights) in a Sticky IWB. Keep it loaded with 357 Mag Hornady Critical Defense.

I've had several semi-autos, but wasn't comfortable carrying with a round chambered, so what was the point?

I carry a Springfield XDS 3.3 in 9mm. I like it because it has redundant safeties, grip safety like a 1911 and a trigger safety like a Glock. I would rather carry a 45 but 45 ACP and subcompact don't go together IMHO. I wear shorts and t-shirts a lot so for me subcompact is the only way to go.
When I started carrying I bought a P345 but could not get used to the backwards safety compared to the 1911 and it just didn't feel natural.
I don't switch my EDC. The last thing I want to do if my adrenaline is pumping is try to remember which one I'm carrying. There is an old saying - beware of a man with only one gun for he likely knows how to use it.

If I am going on a coke buy and need more shots, I bring a 2nd revolver.

Pocket guns: Taurus 85UL, NAA Guardian .32ACP, Taurus TCP 732, and Remington RM380. The RM380 is my main "go to" pocket gun and rides in a Recluse TS holster.

Shoulder holster guns (cold months only): Glock 36 and CZ75D PCR.

The shoulder holster guns are obvious candidates for belt holster carry, but I've never gotten used to IWB and I don't carry OWB due my work clothes not covering the gun.

Per my preference, none of my carry guns have a manual safety. Four of them have double strike capability. The PCR is the only one with a de-cocker.

Most of the time I carry a Beretta 8045 Cougar/.45 acp. My second main carry is a SIG P229/.357 sig. I highly prefer high ride pancake style holsters for both. If I'm out in shorts or need better concealment I've recently been carrying my LC9s in a Viridian reactor pocket holster.
