I have two that I carry on a regular basis. My favorite is my .45 Kimber Polymer Target. Second is a Baby Eagle .40

The Kimber likes just about anything I feed it. The BE is a bit more finicky.

Springfield 1911 A1 "Loaded", I've spent the most time with it, shooting under simulated stress, clearing jams etc.

My first choice is a Ruger SP-101 .357 Mag with a 3" barrel. At the moment, though, I'm using a Steyr M40 .40 S&W. I'd like to start training with and carrying a .45 ACP, and I like the Para-Ordnance CCW, but it's a bit pricey for me.

I'll bet I'm the only one who's going to have a SA as my carry gun, but it's a Ruger Vaquero .44mag or Ruger "Vaquerito" Single Six .32H&R, one or the other goes mostly everywhere with me....Kansas is open carry or NO carry state, and open carry tends to frighten the public to more hassle than it's worth to me.

If it's not one of those, it's a .38spcl Cobra Derringer, which is mostly concealed even when it's worn openly just because it is so small!!

As far as my CCW pistol goes (when traveling abroad), it's either that Derringer or a Jennings J-22 .22lr-just because I have it. If I move to a state with CCW, I'll likely be picking up a Kel-tec .380.
