I carry a poly framed subcompact for my EDC because I consider it expendable. I guess I hold my revolvers in higher esteem.

As of now a semi auto, but seriously thinking of going back to a J frame size Rev for carry.

Right now, I've been carrying a 442.

Once the weather gets cooler and I start wearing flannels, I might switch to a GLOCK 26.

I have a couple Milt Sparks VM2's on order so that might change things too.

I couldn't accurately vote because I carry both revolver and auto equally.

I only carry Revolvers. Most of the time a 442 in my pocket and one of these others AIWB.

If I was going to carry a revolver it would be my 642, but I just don't shoot it all that well. I keep it because it's fun to shoot and it's a cool looking little revolver, I've had it forever. For carry, it's just my Shield 9 or maybe my Glock 19.

My Primary carry pistol is a Sig P228 9mm and in the summer when it's hot and I'm in shorts and a tee shirt it's a S&W pre Model 36. So in the summer I can be both.

I voted "other than revolver" because it was, technically, correct. There should've been a "both" option, however.

My primary carry for the last few years has been a revolver. Normally a 2 1/2" or 3" K frame in .357, or on days when weight and size matter more, a 3" Model 60.

When it really has to be small and low profile, I carry a .380 ACP semi-auto, which I also carry from time to time as a backup.

I've carried a revolver just about every day for the last 20 years. The 340 M&P and the SP-101 are the current choices.

How about both? I alternate between a M60-9, M457 and a Kimber Ultra Stainless TLE, depending on what I'm wearing, my mood and what I haven't carried lately. Yes, I shoot all three fairly well, thank you!

Yeah, why not both? My edc is either a Shield or a Model 49. Today, it's the Shield. That said, I feel equally comfortable with the snubby. Depends what day it is.

I've pocket-carried a no-dash 640 the year around for a good many years.

Considering a Ruger LCP for dress occasions or backup, but I trust a revolver more.

I used to carry my S&W mod 37 in a pocket holster. But that was
before I bought a Glock 43 9mm. After enough rounds through the
G43 to prove reliability it resides in the same pocket and the 37 does
HD duty along with a few others at different locations around the
house.

Started with a 66, downsized to a 640 and 20 years later to a 340.
And I don't need to pick up my brass.
