    Awwwwww Joe.. such a cute little gun!

    Just kidding Coach.

    My side arm is Glock 20, 10mm. Got it when I was in Panama and we have been 'close' ever since!

    Mom's packin a Colt Python .357 6" and a S&W Bodyguard as her CC baby, she's named it 'Kevin'.. she loved Kevin Costner in 'Bodyguard'

    I call my Glock "Hans"...

    I have a few to choose from, but my prefered carry pistol is a 1911 oficers model 45acp loaded with flying ash trays(200 grn hollow points). When I am in the woods I carry a Smith&wesson Mountian Gun in 44mag most of the time.

    bigbuck---great choice and it is a great pistol. Get yourself some federal hydrashoks for that baby and you will have an awesome stopping handgun.
    I have multiple handguns including that one and my "car" gun is a dan wesson 1911.
    But the one that I carry most is a north american arms 22 magnum 5 shot. It NEVER does not go with me as it just fits right inside your pocket. Yeah, I know, its a 22 magnum. But what you will find with most folks is a pistol is cumbersome and they end up not carrying it. The best pistol is the one you are carrying. I usually carry two but the small one is always with me. I also carry the M & P in a ankle holster as it is the compact.

    I'm the odd guy out again....

    None of the above.

    I carry infrequently but when I do, It's always my Bond Snakslayer 2 shot derringer, fits in your pocket like a set of keys or in it's tiny ballistic nylon holster. One chamber has a 410 shotshell with No.8 and the other has a hollow point 45 Long Colt.

    First one to get the attention and cause terminal acne, the second one to drill a large hole.....

    If you need more than two, you are done for anyway.

    I have a Kimber and a Wilson but I prefer the small but mighty derringer.
