Saw this question the other day and it got me thinking , my Dan Wesson ECO would be it for me. Carried it very regularly for the last 5 years which is not bad considering I got my CCW at 18 only 7 years ago! As usual a thread is worthless without good picks




Original set up, almost embarrassed to admit I had crimson trace grips on it ...



Current set up, switched to VZ slimline G10 grips and switched over to leather holsters from kydex.

And yes I am bored

Edit: Open carry guns are included all guns whatever you carry daily, unless it’s a Obrez....

I think it's my 4" XDs 9mm. I bought it in 2015 and it's been my most carried of any of my pistols, past or present. I think I owned a Taurus PT-111 longer but never carried it as much.

I love the thin profile. With the 9 Rd extended mag, it's a full size grip.

I have guns I’ve owned longer but as far as a CCW I’ve carried one of my P7s off n on for over twenty years. Carried it in an Alessi shoulder holster most of this winter.

Glock 26 Gen 3 since 2013. It’s picked up a mag extension and Ameriglo sights, but it’s the same gun.

If you count years of service in my brief case (yes I am old enough that I carried a brief case 5 days a week for probably 10+ years), it would be my SW66.

SW Model 60. Carried since the early 90s. My father carried it long before that.

Here it is sitting in a circa 2020 WLW holster and some new grips after the last Bianchi all but fell apart after a decade or longer.

1989: S&W M-10-5, 4in, Private Armed Security
1993: S&W 442, Satin Finish w/ UM Boot grips (ankle carry-BUG)LEO
2002: G19-3 various Security, LEO, EDC

add on:
2018: Sig 226 9mm EDC
2020: Sig 320 9mm 5" Still Wringing out/nightstand/ 21rd mag & Laser-light attached
The Sigs were found used, but minty shape with cases, mags, all paperwork. Prices wern't that bad either. (before C-19 Panic)
Guess My G19-3 is mostly EDC. Rest are all cleaned and lubed, on standby vs Corona-19 Shelter in Place.

My Taurus 85CH was owned the longest by me but I didn't carry it much. I usually stuck it in my car when I left home.

So...it would be my S&W Shield that I have actually carried the longest. I'm on my second one now so between it and my first it's been about 6 1/2 years of carrying it.

I think that my most senior EDC gun is my gen 3 Glock 23. I’ve had it since around 2011 IIRC. It’s the bottom one in the pic below

The longest carry gun is a Colt Officer .45ACP. Bought around 1984 or 85 from Shoe's Gun Rack off 10th behind MacDonalds in the small shopping center across from Ben Davis. Carried till it hurt to shoot then went to full size 1911and now a 1903 that has been my pants on to pants off for 9 years.

About 1991 I changed over to a gen 2 Glock 19; from a Sig 226. Then around 1999 I changed to the 3d gen Glock 19 (pictured). I'll probably change to a gen 5 Glock 19 at some point.

I like the Dawson Precision sights and the Freya mag well helps "push" my hand higher on the pistol giving me a (subjectively) better grip. No internal mods to the gun.

My Beretta M9A1 would be it but since I switched it to an Elite LTT 2 years ago I’m sure that gun will take the title in the long run.
