I carry daily, and my firearm is a Kimber Ultra Carry in 45 ACP caliber with a set of Crimson Trace Grips installed. I use a Ted Blocker IWB type holster. In my back pocket is a Diamondback DB9, but if I'm going to be driving any distance that gun goes into an ankle holster on my left leg. I'm a former LEO, and I know police agencies can not protect the general public, so we need to be able and willing to protect ourselves. I carry only to protect myself, not to stop a bank robbery or a holdup in a store, or even a shooter in a mall. I don't want to take another person's life unless it is to keep for loosing my own, so I won't stick my nose into anyone else's business to stop a crime against them. More important than what you carry is how much you practice. At the range today I witnessed a man of about 65 years of age shooting his 40 S&W Sig 229. With every shot he fired he ducked his head because of the recoil, his shots were all over the target, he will never be proficient with a handgun until he can overcome flinching. Start shooting a 22 and practice until you can hit consistently with the gun you plan on carrying.
