That's exactly what I do. I everyday carry, and like the question stated, I rotate my weapons. Every week or so I change what I'm carrying. It doesn't mean that I carry the same gun every day. It means I carry every day. Which I do. What I carry depends on the weather more than anything. But I don't carry anything smaller than a 357.

Besides, you're wrong. EDC does stand for "every day carry", but it doesn't mean you carry the same gun every day. It just means you carry every day.
Exactly what I said. Does he ware pants every day? Yes. Does he ware the same pants every day? I hope not.

I carry depending on what I'm wearing and where I'm going. Either a LCP Custom, SP-101 or Shield in 45.

A "like" is not enough. Worth repeating. Because it is true.

I have to agree. I've done the same thing with vehicles as well. Standing at the gun range is one thing, but when adrenaline is pumping and a life or death situation has set in, I don't want to depend on remembering if safety up is off, safety down is off, no safety, etc.

I am against it. I have carried the same .45 pistol for over twenty years and am completely familiar with it. I also know I can place a bullet where ever I want with my pistol, within 25 yards. That is the reason why I never deviate from my carry gun.

Opinions vary. And...It's wear not ware.

I have 3 carry pistols and one bug .. The Bug is a Sig P238 HD safety on the left side only .. My 3 carry pistols are different but much alike .. No safety .. no magazine safety .. 2 are DA/SA hammer fired and one striker fired .. trigger pull on the striker fired is just at 6# while the DA/SA one is 6.5/3.75 the other is 8/4 .. In shooting them I group them all at 10 shots at 30 feet under 2-3 inch groups .. fast shooting 2 to the body 1 to the head very easily in practice .. as are double taps .

Before changing my carry I will practice with it several times the week before carrying it .. My bug is carried cocked and locked in a pocket holster .. the only one with a safety I practice at home drawing and moving the safety off more then my other pistols just because it is different then the main carry pistols ..

But I don't have any trouble changing from one to another .. but I do practice weekly my draw and trigger pull at home beside the range work I do ..

EDIT : I rotate or change my carry pistol 2 to 3 times a year .. and occasionally with what I have to wear .. but that doesn't happen much any more since I am retired ..

I have carried legally for 40+ years. Always 2. Not always the same 2.
I have tried many combos, always giving each combo at least 6 months.
I have decided..and this is only for me...that all my carry guns must be point and press. That puts all guns on the same footing, one less thing to remember.
I carried 2 Js for several years. Never felt undergunned.
The deciding factor for me at almost 70 is weight and size. Because I shoot everyday, these carry guns get shot a lot. Also, since I am more than a little nuts, if a gun EVER goes down in my daily shooting, it is for sale! I have many more to replace them with. This has happened to me twice in 40+ years.
I will have to come down in Muss's court on this. My mind knows and my body acts in accordance with whatever I am carrying. It probably doesn't hurt that I have my hand on my gun, in my pocket, 100 times a day.
