POLL: What Caliber Do You Carry The Most?

Post by LongHairedRedneck » Sat Oct 24, 2009 11:27 pm

I was just curious to see what everyone carries the most?

This is not what you want to carry the most, should carry the most, best defensive caliber, what I carry in the winter, this is my truck/car gun, etc.....

Just intended to see what everyone actually carries on them the most based on days/amount of time carried.

I have to cast my vote on .380 because I carry one the majority of the time(I live in shorts and t-shirt) although my .40 does get carried when clothing allows.

Also I could only list 12 Calibers, sorry if yours is not on there

I too carry the lowly .380, and feel safe carrying it.

I usually carry two pistols (a .380 and a .45) but the prime grab is the .45 so I voted for that.

My dear, sweet, lovely better half carries a 9mm....and knows how to use it too! :fire

This is the textbook response I was looking for, voting on what is carried for the majority of time.

Thanks :tiphat:

.40 cal, but only because 5.56 mm is a bit harder to conceal. :biggrinjester:

My "Always" gun is a .357, an S&W 340Sc . . . in an Uncle Mike's holster, it just disappears in my pocket.

When wardrobe allows, I'll carry either a 9mm or .45.

I carry my Sig P250 40 cal most, even in shorts and tshirt it conceals ok.

I carry a .45 on my hip for everyday business; however, there will be either a Sig .380 or a S&W .38 in my pocket for church, weddings, Bar Mitzvas, funerals and other more dressy affairs.

Depending on what I'm wearing and where I'm going I rotate between four calibers.
My LCP (.380), my PT111 (9mm) or my snubby (.38).
If I'm going out to dinner, a large public gathering or similar then I carry my 24/7 (.40) which is the largest gun that I pack (my 1911 lives at home). It's the least comfortable to carry (sitting is almost painful with an IWB holser) but this gun is a tack driver and powerful enough to get the BG's serious attention.
I voted 9mm because I carry it just a tad more often. :fire

My carry gun of choice is currently a .45ACP. That's my new baby and my favorite. So I voted .45.
But I've actually carried a .40S&W much more because I've had it much longer (about 10 years compared to less than one year).
I've also got a tiny .22 Magnum revolver that is my gun that can go where larger guns can't. In all honesty, it probably gets carried about as much as the .45.

I end up carrying 9mm the most, because I tend to shoot it the most. I also carry a 40 S&W, but I don't shoot it as much. It tends to be cheaper to feed the 9mm.

:thumbs2:

I would amend: .45 cal (45acp, 45colt or 410) but only because my Marlin 1895( .45-70 hornady leveraction 325 gr) is harder to conceal. "rlol" "rlol"

FYI The 45 colt / 410 is combo. http://www.bondarms.com/BondArticle%20copy.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; It is my smallest carry weapon. The left hand on pocket Bug. So you can shoot left while drawing right hand .45 acp. You do not have to drawn fast if the other hand is firing a weopon. :fire

.45 cal here. Just my personal preference.
