What do you carry for CCW?

This poll has been posted per a request from GT user "Fox". Just looking for the basic info for comparison, but if you wish, you may share make/model/calibre/etc. Thanks!

I carry both depending on the situation.
The thing about reality is that it's always there waiting for you the next morning.

I have a couple dozen handguns, but mostly carry my G33 or Bersa Thunder 380. During the winter, I sometimes carry my G19. During the hottest days, I'll carry a pocket gun, such as my Beretta Tomcat.

Always a S&W 640 or 642 -- either as a back-up to my trusty G22, or as a primary, with a KT P-3AT as backup (depending on the situation and where I am working).

Have been known to carry all 3!

I carry both. There should be a third option here I guess. One or the other and sometimes both at the same time.

Me too, but I'd have to say I carry an auto 99% of the time, so my vote was auto.

Depends on the situation, sometimes double or triple carry.

Always an auto. Either a HK USP45f, G20, or a 1911. Occasionally a Kel-Tec P3AT.

Glock model 17 since 2003.
In the United States, suppressors are viewed as sinister and as assassination tools.But in France, for example, suppressors are sold openly in stores without restriction or registration.In fact in France and Switzerland, you can be fined by law enforcement for discharging a firearm without a sound suppressor in certain locations. - Police Magazine August 2008
