I prefer my .357 mag. It conceals well in loose clothes which is how I usually dress.

The most popular around here is 9 for men and 380 for women. The question was not what you use.

I have carried a Glock 29 most in recent months (10 MM) and like it's accuracy. A XDS 3.3 in 45 has been a favorite, and I usually carry a 380 as a back up, I have several to choose from but generally around the house its a Colt Mustang XSP, and out of the home a Kahr CW380, I carry based more on the holster attributes. I did not add but should have a NAA revolver in .22 Magnum as a back up to the Backup. Hey I am NOT paranoid! It's merely my way of saying 'I Care'!
I now carry a Glock 33 in 357 Sig

Ruger LC9 is my favorite carry gun. I like pocket carry and it conceals nicely. For years I preferred a .40 IWB but with the increase in ammo prices over the past 10 years it's costly to shoot my .40 and .45. Once I started shooting the 9mm round again I began to like it more.

I feel well armed with a .22 Magnum, and might with .22 LR, but not in a pistol. I want a revolver as I am not satisfied with the ammo ignition of rimfire. Ballistics are fine enough for me, but I don't want to practice malfunctions when the chips are down. A revolver allow you to move to the next round and cycle back to the dud for a second strike, often they will work the second time. I have a S&W 351PD which is a seven shot J frame snub in .22 Mag and a Ruger LCR 8 shooter in .22 LR, both real accurate.

I have Several .22 LR Pistols and a KelTec PMR-30 in .22 Mag, but I don't carry them for my stated reason. It would be the KelTec though, 30 rounds of .22 Mag is impressive.

I broke my Glock 29 10MM so I am now carrying my .45 XD-S,

My instructor uses and carries a 351PD and swears by it. I am currently carrying a Ruger SP101 .357 mag 3" barrel.

I carry Kel-Tec P3at. The .380's got enough stopping power, and still small enough to be concealed easily and comfortably. I'm sticking to carrying .380's. I've carried 9mm's too and they're just too big and bulky usually.

You need to check out some of the newer 9mm offerings.
They are pretty dang small!

I use only .32 acp for home/carry. My Bersa holds 10+1 with a 3.5 barrel and my Kel Tec P-32 pocket pistol holds 7+1 they are both dependable and accurate. If I wanted a .380 it would be the Ruger LC380 or the Walther PK380. But I like .32 acp. :dance3:

All the 9MM fans like to point to the great strides in the 9MMs capability. I would point out the those same strides have been made across the board of calibers, you can get some pretty racy 32, 380, 40, 45 10MM rounds. The Rimfire has not kept up, but I can imagine that some rimfire maker will step up. To bad Ruger/Polycase are not in the rimfire market...yet.

Also as some have said it is all about getting to a longgun
