Do you have multiple carry guns that you rotate often? I do and by-golly I have a hard time deciding sometimes which one I wanna carry! I like them all and feel comfortable with all of them. They are mostly different calibers also and when I decide I wanna carry something else its turns into a real hard decision :shattered: ! Just wondering if anyone else has this problem? It sounds bad but it is really a problem that is bothering me! Anyone? How do you finally decide?

I have three guns that I usually carry. As far as size goes one is big (gov't model 1911 .45), one is medium (Kel-Tec P11 9mm), and one is small (NAA mini-revolver .22lr). It all depends on what I'm wearing, where I'm going, and what I'm doing.

Yep. Commader 1911 for OWB, Glock 26 if I need to conceal a little more, and a Kahr PM9 for pocket carry.

Yep, full size 1911 for regular carry, Ruger LCP as a back-up gun, or by itself for when i really don't want people to know i'm carrying.... like at my brother's wedding. :shattered: (Before someone freaks out, It's going on in a state where it's legal to carry in a church)

I alternate between an XD9 service model and a CZ-75B in polished SS. The only time I don't OC is in the winter or cooler weather when I wear a jacket. I finally got some nice leather for both and a new belt from Ryan. I consider the CZ-75B my 'dress gun' since it's polished SS, and the XD9 is my regular EDC. :)

If I'm going somewhere I know OC will cause an issue, I pocket carry a S&W 37 snubbie.

I'm sure there are plenty of people around here who would be happy to hold onto some of those firearms for you to help ease this problem -- take them out for regular walks, plenty of exercise at the range, kept clean, etc. Chances are they won't even charge you a "gun sitting" fee for the service.

:lol:

+1 (except for pocket carry. Hey, there's a reason to buy another gun. :lol: )

Absolutely.

In decreasing size order, .45 mid-size, .40 subcompact, .38 Hammerless revolver, and .380 mousegun. Main factor is how I am dressing and what I am able to conceal in a practical and usable manner.

Yes. Sometimes I just feel like wearing something other than what I wore the day before. Never really a problem to pick. Whatever strikes me when I get dressed is what I wear.

Today its 357 OWB + 2 speed strips.

Nope, always carry either one or both of my S&W 340's. I am old and simplicity is
paramount. :eek:ldtimer:

Yes, I usually have a Smith on my hip, a Ruger in my pocket, and a Berretta somewhere else on me. :sly: Or did you mean I had to choose between ONE at a time? :shattered:

One thing I will say, while I do have multiple guns I carry, I try to limit it to 2 types of operation. Either a swipe down thumb safety (1911) or no safety (Glock, Kahr). Most of the time I still find myself swiping down a non-existent safety on my Glocks (no harm there), but I couldn't see myself ever getting used to a flip up safety or something else.

I have to agree here. I hate the sweep up safeties. I am so glad that Ruger started making pistols with sweep down.

After 12 years with the M9 I still love sweep up safeties. In fact, it's one of the reasons I chose the Beretta PX4 series for my carry guns, lots of practice with that style so it's very comfortable for me.
