I carry a Smith And Wesson Model 19. Great working gun for us farmer/rancher types. .38's for most, .357's for the tough stuff.

Usually G23 with 13+1, IWB, OWB. Star Firestar 40 for the longest time with Milt Sparks IWB ( comfy but heavy). P13 was heavy after 4hrs even with a good holster and dropped for lack of reliability. HK USP was too big except in winter. I'd consider the Kahr series but they're pricey and have questionable quality control.

A firestar, eh? How reliable is it? I had one for about 2 days but ended up trading it for a 10 ga (the only one I have ever seen) since I didn't have my wallet. I heard they broke about as much as automags. Do they still make them?

100% in the 12 yrs I owned it. I shot it a lot even during some IDPA matches but mostly club matches over the years. I put Trijicons on the front and carried it for 80% CCW. I was cleaning it one day and had it loaded with 7 +1 and compared it to my HK FS USP45 loaded with 12+1 and couldn't believe they weighed almost the same! I only sold it because I wanted something lighter and because I moved to a wet and humid region-that was the G23.

I carried a M&P .40 but since I got new Trijicons installed I'm back to the G22 But I'm not too proud to carry both or either depending upon my attitude.
Old men start war and a young man dies...........
100 Men go to war, 80 of them should have never left home. 10 are mere targets, 10 are true soldiers, but 1 is the real warrior who is responsible to bring the others back home.

Been carrying my S&W M60 here as of late.
Weird,I never really carry revolvers. But I've just been stuffing it in a holster and not really thinking about it. -_-;;

Most of the time, when I leave the house my carry is tucked (very comfortably) in one of these, inside my belt but outside the pants.

My CZ82 fits the smaller one, my G22 fits the larger, and they ride very securely, either way.
Like Zaphod Beeblebrox, I'm "just this guy, you know?" ...but I never thought my neighbor had to live next door. I'll watch your back if I see you need it, and won't ask you nothin' in return.

I generally carry a Kahr PM9. But sometimes I carry my G19.

I would love to get a revolver.
