Sig P365. 12+1. I have carried my SF but it can get a little heavy for my comfort after a while. Carried both once just because. 30+2 without a spare mag. Too much?

No such thing as "too much".

I think I'm going to start EDC'ing my P07. I've got enough time behind the trigger now that I trust it and am very comfortable with it.

Depends on my mood but most commonly I carry my Taurus G2C. Especially since I found a real nice mag extension. Doesn't add rounds but adds about 1 1/4 to the length. Changes the feel of the gun dramatically Sometimes Ill carry my full size 1911. I'm a big guy 6'5" and 300 so I can hide a lot.

Interesting choice, I like my G2C, in an OWB holster. Makes a nice compact carry that can be concealed under an untucked shirt. Difference is that I DON'T like the pinkie extension. I used a belt sander to sand the factory mag base down into a flat flush-fit magazine. I'm still able to get a 2.5 finger grip and the recoil is light enough that it still handles and shoots great.

(*) Buy a couple of boxes of 124 gr. WWB NATO to break in the stiff RSA. Cheap, and shoots great in the Canik! (*)

I generally carry a PA63 (9x18 makarov) or a S&W Airweight 38 special. The makarov was my first gun, got a deal on 2, shot the heck outta 1, carried the other. I love it and I'm pretty accurate with it. The 38 special I acquired for my daughter/father. Someday I hope my daughter will carry it in a purse, because ya know, a restraining order is just a piece of paper...For now the gun is for my father, in his finer years I have noticed him struggle to pull the slide back. I'm not saying he couldn't but I would rather know he is safe, especially when I have to leave for a week or 2 at a time. The 38 also became my dog walking gun, I keep a shotshell as #1 so if a dog comes after my puppy pants I can safely warn it by shooting a tree or I can injure it. There are exceptions, if I'm wearing a suit I have my taurus pt92ss, its stainless steel and just goes with a suit. If my daughter and I are going for a hike I take several guns, my TP9SFx will probably replace my old hip gun but I also take several others as we have had black bears within 50 yards of us(not a great feeling walking backwards with a hand on your kids shoulder and the other drawn on a bear). I do plan on getting a more modern carry gun, I have been considering the Canik TP9SA MOD2. Here's some pics, I'm stealing them off my Instagram so it's got my whole every day carry items too.

Nice, I've had a Makarov as carry gun for awhile before. The TP9SA is kind of big for a carry gun though, I'd consider the Elite over it. Unless you open carry then disregard.

My list varies depending on the season:

Summer: Ruger LC9S, S&W 3913, Ruger LW Commander .45

Cooler weather: Elite, Glock 19, Glock 23, Canik Shark-C, Sig P220 .45, SR1911 .45 (full sized 1911 isn’t a problem so long as you have a decent belt and holster), Combat Commander .45

Pretty much all of them are modified in one way or another.

I carry my Ruger LC9S most of the time. I also carry my Sig p320 compact with the Romeo 1 sight some. It all comes down to what Im wearing and the occasion some times. The police department I work for bought us all Glock 43 for on duty back up carry.

Glock 43 it is. Hit 90° all ready and this one comes in at one pound. Lets see, the .45 was pushing 3 pounds and the Range Officer was 2 pounds. Feels like I walking on air.

I haven't carried it much, but after pulling it from the safe and dry firing tonight, I forgot how much I like my SAR B6C. A CZ clone, it feels great in the hand, DA/SA hammer fired, medium sized polymer, holds 13 rounds. Brand new, it is tight and with a too-stiff safety, but with proper lube and break in, everything smooths out and gets better and better. The DA trigger is just the right resistance for me. And the price point is a silly mid $2 C-notes. The more I handle the various flavors they offer, the more I like SAR...they are giving Canik a run for the money.

When the weather is warm it's a toss up between my Sig P938 and my CZ Rami bd with one extra mag. loaded with 124 gr. Gold Dot +P's
In cooler months when a coat is required I carry a XD mod 2 3.3" 45 auto with a spare 13 round mag. loaded with 230 gr. Gold Dots with a mounted O-light pl mini 2. Around the house the 45 cal. XD is always with me or close by.
