Why do you carry your specific configuration of firearm/holster/ammunition?

Brand: Taurus 92 9mm , because it was $250, & I won't cry if it's "seized as evidence" and I never see it again.
It is comfortable to shoot, reliable, and magazine capacity is very good.

Holster: because it is comfortable - many are NOT.
I have some that I need to sell, because I never use them.

Ammo: Winchester Silvertip, 147gr JHP -or- Winchester Ranger SXT, 147gr JHP
Accurate, Good ballistics and feeds well.

I had to decide on something...too many toys - choices. Reliable, ammo readily available, plenty of knockdown power.

If you ever have a firearm "seized as evidence" by law enforcement, the least of your financial worries will be the cost of the gun you lost. Especially after you hear the cell door slam behind you.

Ruger LCP, .380 ACP with Hornady Critical Defense 90gr. ammo, Mikes' soft pocket type holster or ankle holster (can't recall the brand?). I used to carry a G23 (mid-size .40cal) but it's uncomfortable and not as easy to conceal, especially in warmer weather with less clothing. The LCP is so small that it's easy to conceal and not at all uncomfortable so I'm more inclined to wear it.

At the moment, I'm carrying a Ruger LCR .327 loaded with Speer 100 grain Gold Dots. I have a Desantis Intruder inside waist holster.
I only tend to carry if I'm carrying cash at a car show...?

My EDC is a Glock 42 loaded with Precsion One's load of the Hornady XTP bullet carried in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster.

I am just interested in people's equipment. It might give me insight as to what I carry.

I always carry a Kahr CW380 in my back pocket, Recluse holster, with extra mag. Buffalo Bore +P's, 80 gr. TAC-XP.

As the situation warrants, I carry more stuff.

The Glock 42 is a smooth shooter and is comfortable to carry in my pants pocket. It even fits in the tank pouch on my motorcycle.

How do you find the OAL on that? That is one of the "longer" smile .380's.

LOL.. I do live in Canada but have traveled extensively through the USA for long periods of time.. and id agree in certain areas.. but I don't think I have ever "wished" i had a gun on me anyways..

What kinds of situations have you all been in where packing heat was "needed"? Dont get me wrong, I'm not anti guns, just curious on the mindset I suppose.

We just recently had a mass shooting at Wal-Mart here. We've also been the recipients of other school/mass shootings in the past few years(Aurora movie theatre, Arapahoe High School).
I go to school in Denver on the Auraria Campus. In addition to the possibility of a mass shooting in that situation(unlikely, but possible), it is a nice campus, surrounded by undesirables, that fairly consistently come on to campus, and assault/rob/arson etc.
