What pistol do you carry for self defense (vs the one you compete with)?

Recommended Posts

I compete with a CZ Shadow 2 milled for CO in USPSA and an M&P 9L 5" performance Center 

with Apex flat trigger FSS kit in Steel challenge

carry an M&P 9c v1 or a shield 9.

thinking of getting the 9C milled for an optic

Recent production Sig P365, hopefully all the kinks are worked out, seems fine. It shoots the best of all the small 9mms I've tried and the extra capacity is a bonus too. 


G19 with light at home.

I shoot 2011, 1911, and a 22/45. So all 1911 grip angle. I used to compete and carry glocks. When I wrote off glocks for competition I found that while I still could shoot them proficiently it always took me a few draws to instinctively find the natural angle to find the correct sight picture with the glock. So I sold all my glocks and now I carry a S&W shield in 9mm with no safety. I love it. It was $288 brand new out the door and it works. Also closer grip angle to my competition guns.

I started this game actually using my carry gun - a Glock 19. I run a 34 in Production... dabbled for a minute with a Stock 2 and went back to Glock. I believe there is some truth in standardizing on a platform.

When I did try the carry thing, it was a 9mm Kahr.

Nothing like my comp guns.


These days, I don't carry....To much of a bother.

Tried it. Even went through the hassle of getting a permit in IL, back in 2014, for gosh sake.

Didn't like carrying. Didn't feel I needed to carry. 

Live in TN now. Easy to get one here, but I haven't.
