    Well, I use my knife to back up my handgun, but each to his own.

    I carry a HK USP 45, but I need something smaller, particularly slimmer and shorter in grip, for the summer.

    Edit to add: More of a poll of what fellow knife people carry. But if you actually carry a certain model, recomendations are always welcome.

    I would guess it depends on the caliber you wish to carry. I always thought the Colt Mustang to be an easy one to carry.

    IF you can deal with double action autos, I would recommend the KAHR P-9 9mm. It's what I carry. It's flat, takes eight rounds of decent 9mm ammo and I can hit what I shoot at with it.

    I prefer a caliber that starts in 4, and especially if it ends in 5.

    However 9 is fine. 357 SIG, the jury in my head is still out.

    Auto's 9, 40, 45 are all good.

    I generally go with autos because of the flat package and firepower, but I just love my S&W 640-1 ,double action only.357mag revolver.

    I have been looking at those Kahrs since they appeared. Might choose the 40, since if I ever buy one, the extra weight in the bullet makes more sense.

    Or look for that Colt super compact 45, I think its called an Officers? they buck quite a bit more than any 9 though.

    My knife has another knife as a backup. I don't carry a blade as a weapon.

    My Glock 21 .45ACP has guns for backup ... either a Glock 23 .40 or a Glock 26 9mm and a Rem. 870 12ga.

    CZ75B (love it!) IWB or my Kel-Tec P32, big bang for a tiny package.

    The CZ is a fairly recent purchase and I am very fond of it - very accurate, reliable so far, easy to shoot, and great ergos.

    I own some impressive heat but for concealability etc. I have 2 favorites: An early S&W Model 60 stainless and a PPK in stainless. The PPK loaded with Federal Hydro-Shock ammo is very impressive.
