For me it is my Glock 19 that I carry religously everywhere I go. If I ever had to rely on one that would probably be it.

I swich back and forth between a Glock 21&22.I carry one,the other lay's on my headboard.

If I reach for a handgun 'round the homestead it is my 10MM G20.

If I lived in a free State and CCW'd it would be either my G30 or G19.

My customized Kimber. Carried daily. It has 27,000+ rounds through it and the only stoppages that I can remember were somewhere around the 15,000 round mark. I installed an Aftec extractor and it's right back on track

Glock 23 that I've had for years. It's never disappointed me.  Only time I don't carry it is when I'm on duty then it's a Beretta 96.

This is easy! Glock on the desk. Glock on the dresser. Glock in my truck. "NIX BESSER"

Cause I'm a Southpaw, That's why!

It's hard to pry me away from my Glock 26.  Small (as Glocks go) & yet very easy to manage.  Tritium sights & extended slide release.  Also have a 2nd generation Glock 19 w/tritium & a Streamlight M-3 near the bed.

P.S.  I notice that Glock seems to be winning by a landslide here.    Probably because it's as dependable as death & taxes and extremely simple to operate under stress.  It's not, however, so expensive that you break out in tears if it gets lost or stolen.

Sig Sauer P228, carried it for 3 years on a part time job and it has had thousands of rounds through without ever so much as a hiccup

Glock 30 in a Fobus Paddle and a Glock 21 FML +2 magazine in a Galco QMC as a spare. 10+1 of .45ACP Federal 230gr. Hydra-Shoks in the gun and 14 in the spare mag. I also carry a Surefire E2 on a regular basis. Hard to argue with 25 rounds of .45ACP.

When more descreet carry is needed then I opt for my S&W 342PD AirLite Ti .38Spl. with 5 rounds of .38 Federal 125gr. +P Nyloks and 5-10 spares in Bianchi Speed Strips.

The Glock gets carried most of the time. The spare mag gets carried more and more since 9/11 "just in case". In situations that I deem "lower risk" then I will carry the AirLite. And if I deem a situation to be of "higher risk" then I will carry both the G30 and the AirLite as a backup.

Since 9/11 I almost never leave the house without one or the other. I just feel naked without them.

Did I make a wrong turn and end up on glock talk?

Personally, I wasn't impressed with Glock, I carry a Springfield Ultra Compact .45 ACP with Kimber mags. 230 Grain JHP Winchesters.

But that is what I prefer.

I don't care for the Glocks also. I carry a Kimber Ultra CDP 45acp with Springfield mags! Just kidding, use Kimber & Wilson mags

870 Remington HD is my favorite, different size shot/powder, slugs, 3" Magnum if needed and all the gizmos make it just about the perfect weapon for me.

Glock 21 & Glock 36 if I can't hide the 21 on me.

But my favorite/most dependable gun is my Remington 700 in 7mm Rem Mag, I guess that is the gun I would most prefer to have in my hand.

What about that new camo AR?

Glock 26 = CCW perfection.
Link Posted: 6/6/2002 5:33:57 PM EST
I have quite a few of the state of the art autos that you guys mentioned.

The one that I NEVER let out of my reach is a S&W mod 36 3in. It has a 4 digit serial# and is probably older than I am.

For a NY reload I keep a NAA Mini 22lr in my watch pocket.

It would be a toss-up between my Kimber and my Hi-Power.  If we were talking rifles, it would either be my CAR-15 or my FN.  What can I say, I' m torn!

To paraphrase Turbonatr:

My Glock 17 is for fighting my way to my AR-15. Sidearms are for those unfortunate situations, such as making doody, when you do not have your rifle at hand....

Sig Sauer P229 in .40 cal with 155 gr Speer Gold Dots and rests in a Bianchi Accumold paddle holster. Spare mags go along in a paddleback open top case from Gould and Goodrich. Very reliable gun with comfy carry accessories. Never leave home without it.

Well, I carry a HK USP .45 Tac, my neighbor carries a HK USP .45F.

Once I'm done SBRing my USC w/30 rnd mags, I'll carry it in my laptop bag I carry everyware (I'm an I.S. guy). I still trust the Tac the most. Around the house, I trust my VEPR II .223 as long gun, but I still ALWAYS have the Tac loaded and on me. . .

Before I got my Beretta 92FS, it was a Colt 1991 model. Always went bang when I squeezed the trigger, accuracy was good enough for me. THEN I got the Beretta in 9mm. Great gun, but too big to carry concealed in hot weather (read: MOST of the time in Phoenix) so I got a Sig P239 in .40S&W. It's a real shooter. I carry it 95% of the time now, except when I'm in one of those "firepower" moods, then I go back to the Beretta 'cause I scored two 15rnd mags at the gunshow for $12.50 each. I don't think the guy at the booth knew what he had. Occasionally I even carry the S&W 686, since I found a Fobus holster for it. But again, most of the time now it's the Sig. When I'm at home, I keep the gunsafe at "easy to open" and there's a 30rnd mag for the AR sitting on top, and the 12ga has a stock shell holder with 3@ 00BUCK and 2@ slugs. The Sig-or whatever sidearm I'm favoring that day- goes where I go in the house.

HK USP .45.

Link Posted: 6/7/2002 12:08:08 PM EST
I've found a handgun to be the most reliable semi-auto weapon I own.

My USP .45 has over 3000 rounds through it and I have not had ONE issue, ever.
(well there was that one time I gave wolf ammo a shot, lets just say it didn't work out, read previous wolf threads for more info)

So my USP .45 would be the weapon I'd choose.
