Shooting your EDC is like eating broccoli - you do it because it's good for you.

My EDC is picked based on concealability and effectiveness, usually a 3" .45 pistol or snub-nosed .357 revolver. When I shoot for fun, it is to make the smallest group in whatever time it takes. A 6" K-22 Masterpiece falls in this category, along with 4" to 6" centerfire revolvers, and occasionally a 1911.

I shoot my 9mm Shield about twice a month (about 75 rounds each time). I also shoot my Full Size 9mm M&P. But I like the full sized one the best.

I carry a M640-3 .357 and I shoot what I carry. Hormany CriticalDefense 120gr. .357 with no issues. I did pick up a box of 158 grain FMJ at Wal Mart for the range. I fired all 50 but it did hurt.

When I switched from IWB/OWB to Pocket Carry, my EDC was a PF-9. The recoil with that thing hurt, but I was accurate with it, so I shot it just enough to stay proficient and would switch to one of my 'fun' pistols.

When the Shield came out, IT became my EDC Front Pocket Carry (yes.. I can Front Pocket carry a Shield) AND because the recoil is so tame, it became one of my Fun pistols.

So yes... I enjoy shooting my EDC.

Yes, a 637-2, but I shoot mostly mild handloads for practice and add just a few full power rounds.

Yes Shield 9mm is very enjoyable to shoot. My other EDC, an XDm 45 ACP 3.8 compact is also fairly pleasant.

I recently injured my Tailbone & Lower Back after a fall on the ice, I have been carrying a pair of Ruger LCR's in 9mm since. I carry one in a Mika Pocket Holster and the other in a Simply Rugged Silver Dollar Pancake. I have shot both quite a bit & enjoy shooting them, I'm thinking I may stay with this set-up due to the light weight & shootability of the LCR. I also carry two spare moon clips and one Speed Strip, the 147 Grain +P HST is the load.

I understand your statement but totally disagree. YES, you should shoot it but I see no reason why you have to like it. In my case, I carry a 340 PD because it's light and fits into my pocket which means I'm going to carry it EVERYWHERE. Do I like to shoot it? Hell no. But I do on a regular basis and consider myself very proficient with it and have been carrying it every day since 2008.

I have lots of other guns that are much more enjoyable to shoot!

My EDC is the Ruger LC9s. Small enough for pocket carry, big enough to fit my hand, more punch than a 380, Nice crisp trigger. Not as much fun as blasting targets to bits with my Governor, but it is pretty consistent.

I edc a 642 like many others. I get no enjoyment shooting it, but I do to try and stay proficient. When I retire in 18 months I will have other options and will likely retire it to be a backup.

Me, too. I may be off topic, but I'm always amazed when I read comments that the Shield is "too big" or "too heavy" to be an EDC. I wear ordinary Dockers-type khakis and can easily pocket carry the larger M&P 40c. On some occasions, I'll take my Shield, which is even easier to pocket carry. I guess if one likes to wear ultra-tight blue jeans, even an LCP or Bodyguard would be hard to pocket carry, but forum members don't seem like a tight blue jeans crowd to me.

Default One to Shoot and One to Carry ...

My 360PD AirLite is a joy to carry but punishing to shoot:



My solution was to buy a shooter, my 640 Pro Series:



Now I feel I have the best of both worlds, a firearm, I can effortlessly carry all day long, and a weapon I can shoot all day long.

Default When Five may not be enough ...

Carrying a five shot J frame may not be enough, and a revolver reload is a good way to get killed on the street so my BUG is usually my 3914DAO:



Thin, light, and accurate with fast to acquire Big Dot sights:

i enjoy shooting all handguns I own (not like i have a huge collection); If not then why bother owning one. And when i am ready to carry, it'll be my PC Shield and yes I really enjoy shooting that one.

I dont believe i'd become truly proficient with anything if I did not spend time practicing, and as this is also a hobby for me said practice should also be fun.
