    I was just curious on wat other people chose to carry? I Carry A Glock 27 .40 cal and I love that gun.. Its small enough to conceal.. and not to bulky if i want to OC with it.. Its a great gun.. and it shoots great... Im currently looking for another gun To carry... Im debating another glock, Id love to get a Kimber Ultra carry II or a Para Ordnance Warthog. Also I bought a Black hawk Hip holster.. Best 55 bucks iv spent

    Currently Carrying a Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro in 9mm.

    In 1999, I searched around and decided on the affordable (about $325) Taurus PT111 Millennium 9mm sub-compact. I joked it was my Y2K Gun . I planned on getting my CHL and carry it concealed, but just never seemed to get around to it, and only carried it during hunting season.

    The original Millennium had a 12+ lb. DOA (Double Action Only) Trigger Pull! I figured it was OK for close range defense, but if you tried to ease a shot off with careful aim, the gun would start to shake from the effort of slow-squeezing the trigger! The size of the handgrip was a little small for me, my pinkie fell off the bottom of the grip with nowhere to go. (they had add-on pinky rests, but mine didn't have one). I still perferred it to the Sub-compact Glock because of it's external manual safety, affordable price, and Taurus Lifetime Warranty.

    Iended up selling that gun a few years ago due to needing $$ (back injury, 3 weeks off work with no pay), and happily got almost exactly what I had paid for it.

    Recently I started discussing getting CHLs with the wife, and decided to get another handgun. I researched again, and found the new Taurus Millennium PRO, that seemed to have fixed everything I didn't like about the original. I bought a used one in like-new condition with a stainless steel slide at one of the recent Gun Shows at the Lane Co. fairgrounds from a dealer for only $275!

    I really like the improvements to the 9mm PT111 Millennium Pro. It shoots MUCH nicer than the original. Itnow has a Single Action/Double Action trigger, andthe SA trigger pull is only about 5-6 lbs. It came with two post-ban 12 rd. double stack magazines, which now have the "pinky rest" as a standard feature. It also has the "Taurus Security System," which locks the trigger and slide with a special hex key. I was keeping itstored locked with the keyuntil one night we heard weird noises in the backyard and I tried to unlock it in the dark. It now stays unlocked .

    This is my open-carry gun, too(the only pistol we own at the moment). My wife doesn't like it, she says it's too small.She wants the full-size Taurus PT 24/7 Pro to carry in her purse when she gets her CHL, so we'll be looking for one of those, next.

    At the moment I carry my Glock 22 100% of the time. I mostly OC and sometimes conceal carry. No problems at all with it.

    I carry my Hi-Point C9. At the moment I'm window shopping for something else to CC. But not in a real rush being that my C9 hasn't given me any problems after 1,000+ rounds through it.

    S&W 3913 TSW on my hip, and a KelTec P-3AT in the pocket. And before you bash the Kel-Tec, mine has never had one malfunction.

    I haven't bought a gun yet...If I can sell my beige 1993 4 door 4X4 Jeep Cherokee Country 129k miles (Country: power windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control) The AC doesn't work, and some of the belts are getting a little old and will need to be replaced soon, but it runs good. The tires are in great condition. Has an alpine CD Player and sony amp with 2 sony 12" subs 1000watt boxed. (is this an ad???)

    I plan to buy and carry an XD-M with the money. :celebrate

    I haven't OC'd yet - my holster just showed up in the mail. But I'm out of town. When I get home I will be carrying a full size XD-9. I'm looking forward to it.

    Glock 30 in .45 ACP. Occasionally a Glock 26 for deep concealment or a Glock 19, but about 95% of the time it is the tried and true .45 ACP and for me the Glock 30 is the perfect .45 carry gun, both concealed and open carry.

    SIG GSR C3, or Bersa Firestorm Mini-9 most times--or Taurus M-85 in the cold weather when I put it in my coat pocket, for CC. Open, SIG GSR rail or Hi-Power. Always with either +P or +P+ Federal HST rounds--except Speer Gold Dot short barrel +Ps for the snubbie.

    CZ P-01 9mm, in a Fist #17A IWB holster.

    Had a KelTec P3AT as BUG, but it broke. Am currently breaking-in a NAA Guardian .380, for pocket carry. Am anticipating the new Kahr P380 that's coming out soon, though I'll not be the first guinea pig to test.

    I have carried this ParaOrdnance P14/45 for more than a decade, since it was built.

    It is carried 24/7/366, whether open or concealed.

    So we now know who wears the pants in your house. Pretty much like it is at my house.
