Are too numerous. I have decided to start carrying but cannot make my mind up. I can't decide between a small pocket size 9mm or a larger pistol carried iwb. I have never so much trouble making a choice on a weapon. I like the idea of pocket carry, but like the idea of a larger gun with more firepower. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Jon

I carry a Glock 23 (40 caliber). If Redblood is reading this post, I also carry a rare steak in my pocket \:D

Get both. I carry IWB, but also keep a Ruger LCP in my pocket as a bug.

I carry a Springfield XDS 45 auto in the winter, it's a small gun. Once it's warmer I carry my Ruger LCP. With my wallet holster nobody has any idea I'm packing and I'm wearing a T-shirt and shorts. The LCP also goes with me when I'm in a coat and tie or any dress pants.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This.

I have an SR9c and an LCP.

I think I prefer a hammerless revolver...imo less chance of something jamming or going wrong...Ruger .357 LCR is what I have. I also have a Gen 23 Glock that I carry around the farm but for off the farm the Ruger

How do you like it? I've been considering getting one for carry, especially after watching hickok45's review on it. Dang, that man can shoot!

Ruger LCP for unconditional carry, Glock 23 when I'll mainly be on my feet or if it just needs to be within reach.
