I think that having a higher consistent percentage of carry with an “itty bitty” gun is much much better than having a bigger gun and only carrying a little bit. There are always going to be those guys who say “oh I carry a full size HK USP 45 with four back up mags no prob.” To that I say ROCK ON! But for me that just wouldn’t work and for most people something like a smaller gun is goin to be what they choose. First and foremost I carry to protect myself and my family. Secondly if I had to and my family was safe and I was in the position I would try and help my fellow man and even stop and active shooter if i could. I don’t plan on going to war everyday that’s not my profession. If I was a soilder than I’d want a gun with as much capacity and as light weight as I could find. Which means I’d go with a full sized striker fired 9mm. Be it a Glock, M&P, or whatever else. The 1911 wouldn’t even be considered due to the weight and capacity and many other reasons why I think a 1911 is a poor carry choice compared to what we have offered today. But since I am not a soilder and my profession doesn’t have anything to do with it I choose a lighter weight more compact firearm as my carry peice. I tend to grab my Glock 43 most of the time and carry a back up mag. There are some days I will carry a larger gun but 95% of the time it’s the G43 or 45 shield. Not to mention where I work I must stay very Concealed so a larger gun is not practical and due to scoliosis in my back it’s also very hard to carry a larger gun even with my gun belt and decent holster. I think to criticise someone for what they carry is uncalled for. Like others have stated with the OC issues. We as a gun community do more damage to ourselves than the left does sometimes. Everybody is different and the only person who can best evaluate what works best for them is them.
:iagree: Bingo! At the end of the day, concealed vs open, small gun vs full size, 9mm vs 45acp....it's all personal preference. The important thing is that you carry, and that you do so whenever you are able.
I could not agree more. :thewave

Apologies if I am reading this incorrectly, but this is arguing DA/SA are being pushed out? There are still options available (Sig, Beretta, CZ, Bersa, Taurus). I do not believe DA/SA has ever been very popular, at least in the US. Personally I like the concept, but I could never handle the difference between the two. Not a fan of trigger pulls over 7 lb regardless.
