Whenever I’m out in the woods hiking or just being outdoors, I open carry my Sig P220 Elite 10mm.

I do not open carry in the Public. Just dumb IMO. I do not want the anti's in my face and I do not want to get into theirs. And even people that are not Anti- 2nd amendment get a uneasy feeling with some guy walking around with a big gun on that is not a LE. Besides it is tacky as heck. Makes you look weird. Especially some of these guys that look like they were raised in a barn. If someone had a huge cellphone or tablet strapped to his belt he would be called a Nerd. A gun on is worse than looking like a nerd. And no one knows a thing about you, for all they know, you are a grade A nutcase with a short fuse temper that might explode anytime. God forbid you get some bad service.
And why loose the art of concealment and surprise? Just makes no sense.

Well said, and exactly my sentiments. I know open carry has its pros, but it also has its cons as well. Quite frankly I think that open carry really ought to be reserved for those that live in states that allow open carry without a permit but if you live somewhere that requires a permit for both, or somewhere that doesn’t require a permit at all for open or concealed carry, I think concealed carry is the way to go.

How about an option for, "Anything that isn't a 1911" I don't know why anyone would OC such an ugly pistol.

Given the choice though, Glock 24 or Glock 40.

My favorite is Glock 23 Handgun.
This is the “Commander” size handgun from Glock. It's smaller than full-size firearms, making it easier to carry without sacrificing power. Although the Model G19 in 9mm is likely to be more popular, many gun enthusiasts still believe in defensive cartridges that begin with a four.

The G23 in.40 S&W is a tiny pistol with a 14-round capacity that is pleasant to carry all day. Many intelligent gun owners choose it as their regular carry weapon.

Not a bad choice, IMHO. There is a reason most LE agencies use .40S&W, you give up on average two rounds over a similar sized 9mm pistol, so it is a trade-off.

Uberti black powder Navy Colt. Shoots like a dream, I carry it on the job as an armored car guard.

Does that use percussion caps? It's not often I hear about someone using a black powder weapon for self defense.

Yep, it does. I love it. And for those who are going to say I’ve only got six, well I carry a Mauser C96 as a back-up.

My bright yellow water pistol! In today's world only a uniformed patrol officer, a badge carrying law-enforcement official, or a civilian nincompoop should, or would open carry. Just because someone can do something does NOT mean that it's a good idea.
