LC9 most of the time. In the colder months Glock 20C or M&P 357. The right holster makes all the difference.

Alien cloak tuck 3.0, Smith 8282, streamlight, benchmade. I wrap several times around the end of my flashlight with electrical tape so I can hold it between my teeth when both hands are busy.

I also have a 1076 but find it heavy for carry.

Under a pound loaded and holstered.

How much lighter can the PPK/S be over the 3913?

I like the DAO variants for carry and besides the 3914 also have a 6946, 4046, 4586:

M&P 40 Compact: Accurate, reliable, heavyweight bullet, double-digit capacity, fits in front pocket. 'Nuff said.

Went out to the mall wearing elastic waist sweatpants with my 6906 in my black leather fanny pack. Even my 642 in a pocket holster pulls those sweatpants down. And no, no one thought I was carrying a gun in the fanny pack, even pulled my wallet out of the middle compartment to pay for purchases.

I've tried a few options over the years and settled on these:



Sometimes I'll carry a SP-101 but mostly either the LCP or the shield in 45...

My main carry gun is a Colt Commander (04691) with a good belt and holster. Now in the summer if I am just running to town or taking the trash out I carry a Glock 43.

My main carry piece is a S&W 4553TSW no rail.
While out wandering in the woods I carry my S&W 325NG.
On the Harley it is my S&W M&P 340.
For a deep conceal situation it's the Seecamp 380.

My 3914DAO serves me well when thin and light is desired. The 4040PD is a good choice when a step up in power seems appropriate. I've just acquired a 457 to give me the option of a big fat bullet.

digiroc

Funny you mentioned that...
4040PD is what I carry, IWB, OWB or fanny pack...

Either a 3" model 37 or a 642. Light weight and 5 rounds of good .38 spl hollow points are a winning combination. I'm not fighting a war. Sometimes, oh horrors, I carry the 37 on my hip and the snubbie on my ankle.

Massad Ayoob's interview with a Chicago PD Veteran Of 14 Gunfights. Pay particular attention to Mr. Stasch' detailed description of his first shooting encounter. What happened was an eye opener.

These days it's a 640-1 with Speer .38 special SB 135 grain mostly carried in a Mika in the front pocket of cargo shorts or if I'm wearing jeans in a Simply Rugged pancake. My backup is a 637-2 with the same ammo.

That was very interesting to listen to, especially where the bad guy gets shot about 15 times with large caliber bullets and keeps coming!

My 3953 since 1991 (not counting a short period of time I carried my G30) and my 642 since 1996.

Usually the 3953, but when pocket carry is needed, the 642.

At times, both.

Started out many years ago with a model 37 smith, somehow got sidetracked with bottom feeders that never really had my full trust looking back. Now my daily setup is a 340PD in the pocket. Never felt this easy or effectively armed..357 short barrel Gold Dots, and a speed strip. Ive heard this setup described as the definition of an optimist..LOL

About a month and a half ago, I bought a KSD grip for my CS9D.
Since then it has become my go to EDC.

I've carried a Glock 19 for years (and before that a Glock 23) as I carry them regularly enough the mid-size Glock doesn't seem large to me and I shoot them pretty well. In the summer months I find myself carrying a 442 Airweight.
