EDC is a Kahr CM9, with 1 spare mag. Had the Glock 43 been out at the time I bought it, that's what I would own, however I don't like it enough better than I do the Kahr to justify upgrading.

Truck gun is a 18" fully floated AR-15, with a pair of loaded 10rd mags, and typically another 50 rounds in a MTM ammo box. It is primarily for coyote duty on the farm, and just in case something needs shooting (coyotes, pigs, crows, raccoons, etc.). Also typically have at least 1 .22 with me, primarily a bolt action Marlin 980, which is suppressed.

Travel gun, combination of the above, depending on the type of travel. If just going somewhere on business or travel where shooting isn't part of the agenda, the Kahr comes along.

Bedside gun at home is a Beretta 92, in a fingerprint access safe bolted to the side of the bed.

Love it, my dad has a 320 w/ romeo and a 365 and I still prefer the 229Elite. I'm a big guy, the 229E fits my hand much better.

Ruger LCP, because it's the only one I'll actually bother to carry. The S&W .38 snubby was just too cumbersome. Still have it though.

At home, I'd be reaching for the 'ol 870.

I would love to carry a nicer or even larger gun but it's just not practical. I live in a nice area and try and minimize dangerous situations, but I still want to be prepared. So I carry a Ruger LCP 380, 6 oz unloaded an extremely Slimline in ergonomic.

If I had any guns at all and chose to put one in my pocket or truck they might be a Sig P238 and a Mini30.

Another LCPII vote here - great pocket or IWB gun that makes a very loud bang. Also have a Shield 9mm that stays in the vehicle.

My truck gun, night stand gun, carry gun, boat gun, shower gun, kitchen gun and lawn mowing gun is a G43.

When I'm out checking cows I will bring along my 7.5" AR. It's not very accurate at distance but it is loud enough that even if I don't hit the coyote, it will blow his eardrums out.

My girlfriend (with a little encouragement) is a double barrel.

Currently the G43 but will be getting the new Sig Sauer P365 very soon. You just can't go wrong with a 10+1 capacity with ease of carry. Oh and it comes with tritium night sites, the Glocks do not.

I've been alternating my carry gun between a Kimber Pro CDP and a Para Ordnance P12 Limited. When knocking around at the farm, my truck gun is usually an AR or Savage 22-250 to handle yotes and armadillos. If it's deer season, I will have whatever rifle I happen to be hunting with that week. My boat gun is a Ruger Service Six 357.

Haven't had time to keep up with anything in the gun world at all. That thing looks impressive. It may jump in line ahead of a few wish list shotguns/antiques.

It looks nice but I haven't shot or held one yet. It's just a tad heavier than the 43 with eleven rounds. Yeah, Glock's gonna try to top it within the year I bet.
