Firearms of TLF - What’s your EDC?

Post by SGrabs33 »

Wondering what people have for EDC. I’m in the market for a new EDC so wanted to see what everyone carries.

S&W Bodyguard 380 (pocket)
S&W J-Frame (ankle)
Sig P365 (IWB)

I used to be a big M&P Shield fan, but I'm really liking the ergos and capacity (10+1) of the Sig P365.

Nice @dfw_pilot and @Ware. I want to check out that shield the next time I go to the range.

I like the ergonomics of the 365 also but it just feels so small to me. My pinky and ring finger don’t fit well or at all on the grip. I thought then the 365XL would be a good option but it’s really just a longer barrel. The guy at the gun shop the other day said I might as well just get the regular 365 with the extended mag so my hand could fit. Kinda made sense.

The range was way backed up the other day when I went. I need to get over there to rent those ones and other that’s are recommended.

Thanks for your input!

Longer mags are harder to conceal, *sometimes*. Smaller guns are cool but often harder to shoot well. I think you are smart to try several first. And don’t be timid of trying something larger like a G19. Keep us in the loop!

I forgot you're a giant. There is a 12+1 extended mag for the P365, and the P365XL uses a 12-round mag, so the grip is a little taller. Here is a nice comparison graphic, courtesy of Clinger Holsters:

@Ware :lol: thanks for the graphic. Figure I could probably get away with concealing a little bigger gun since I’m a giant.

@dfw_pilot ill add the G19 to the list.

Yeah, G19 or M&P 2.0 Compact are a nice size, without going "full size".

G26 OWB in a Stealthgear Flex most of the time.

G19X w/ Surefire X300U and 19rd reload AIWB in a Stealthgear holster now with the current political climate.

Sig P229 Legion Compact 9MM and occasionally my P220 Carry Elite Stainless 45ACP. Not the smallest or lightest but I’m used to DA/SA. Someday I’ll try the new polymer frame striker-fired pistols that seem to be the rage or maybe I’ll just be content with what I am comfortable with.

Most days my EDC is a Glock 26 or a Ruger LC9. I also carry a Sig 226 but I haven't found the perfect holster yet.

Smith and Wesson M&P 9c (not 2.0) I chose it for the 12 round capacity. I also carry a 17 round (full size) mag with x-grip either on my hip or in my pocket, depending on clothing. I purchased holster and mag carrier from local company Foxx holsters.

EDC for me is a G19 Gen 5. Traded a guy at work a Ruger LCP and $100 for it. 1000 or so rounds in, and I love it. Also my AR lurks under the back seat of my Silverado at all times...

I really like my LCP II. I've had other larger carry guns and struggled to find a comfortable way to carry so I rarely did. The LCP II makes it easy to fit anywhere and not be uncomfortable.
