Not at the same time. But do you only carry one all the time or do you switch for different clothing, comfort etc... I carry a Detonics Combat Master when I am out and around. A S&W 380 Bodyguard when driving because its comfortable. At my office I carry a XDM Compact.

Depends on the day/wardrobe. My main carry piece is a Remington R-1, but I also sometimes carry a Colt Defender, a .380 Walther PPK/S, a Charter Arms .44, and a Rock Island compact 9mm. These are all weapons I have shot the heck out of and trust with my life.

My primary and backup are both 1911 Commanders. Same platform, same holster, same draw stroke, etc, etc.

Most often I carry my Ultra Carry II. Sometimes I carry my Hi Power or one of my 5" 1911s.

For handguns I generally carry a Colt Commander. At times when it is too big I carry a Kahr P9 and on the weekends if I go out in the boonies I carry a Ruger Blackhawk, usually in 45.

Right now it's a Glock 19. Add an LC9 if I'm rolling heavy.

I used to carry a Taurus PT 145. I swore it was a good gun for years. Then one day not long ago I went to shoot it and started getting double feeds. I no longer trust it until I can find out the malf source.

I still like my 1911s, but 118 in the desert is just too hot to carry and sweat on a 1911 in the summer.

I like the big heavy .45 round, but 15 rounds of 9mm vs 7 .45's has grown on me. I can give double love to seven bad guys and still have a round left.

My progression from turning 21 to now:

1). NAA .22 Magnum. (Carried for years and only retired about 2013).

2). Colt Pony Pocketlite (carried from 1999 until 2003).

3). Kahr P9 Covert (carried from 2003 until 2012).

4). Kahr P45 (carried from 2012 until 2014 and still carried openly at times).

5). S&W 1911 PC (carried just during 2014).

6). S&W 438 and 638 (carried from 2014 to current and the 438 was carried for backup from 2013).

*I've hauled a Taurus .38 and Walter P38 around in the car at times and when a rental cop, I wore a Browning BDM 9mm Parabellum from 1999 to 2000.

It changes depending on my mood and what I've spent the most recent range time with, typically.

If I'm feeling Glockish, its a Glock 19/23/30S or 21.

If I'm not its a commander length 1911 or a BHP MK III.

The only time I change for climate is if it is REALLY hot and pocket carry is necessary, then its a Ruger LCR; though I'm eyeing up a SIG 938 for pocket duty.
