[ED: In response to reader requests, this if the second in a series of posts by TTAG writers revealing their choice of carry guns.]
I carry a Springfield XD Sub-Compact in .40 S&W. I wanted something larger than a 9mm, and the .45 Sub-Compact wasn’t readily available here in the Nazi state of California. The single stack is easy to conceal in most outfits and its comfortable to have close to my body . . .
The gun is small enough, yet packs enough punch that, for me, it’s the perfect balance of concealability and effectiveness, especially because I fill it with ten hollow points. It’s listed on my California concealed carry permit. That means it’s the only gun I’m “allowed” to carry legally…one more reason why it’s my EDC.
