As stated numerous times....not truly a rotation. My PPS Classic is inside my waistband 90% of the time. I will sometimes catch a bug to carry my ULC Commander or my P99AS. I refer to those two in my head as “in my rotation”, the terminology is not correct. Perhaps “on my carry ‘menu’” is more accurate.

I have several that are not on the “menu”. I’ll never conceal my M45A1 or any number of my Beretta M9 variants. They aren’t in my carry thought process.

Retired LE, have carried so long that is doesn't seem right to leave home without carrying.....
Summers can be brutal hot/humid here, so pocket carry of my Kahr PM9 is just about every day. Shorts/t-shirt or fishing shirt is everyday wear.

Cooler weather allowing regular clothing with vests/jackets whatever allow for more, and easier to shoot hardware, which for me is almost always some sort of 1911.
Currently a RIA 1911 5" .38 Super that's had some basic work done to it.

Fortunate in that I have my own range and regularly practice and run drills.

I would not say I exactly rotate, but I carry based on situation. My primary conceal carry is either a 9mm Shield or 45 Shield. I live in SE Texas, so most of the year is hot and humid, short & t shirt weather. The Shield 9 serves perfect for this. Sometimes a Ruger LCR 38 works as well. In the little winter we have, if I am wearing a jacket I carry my CZ P07 9mm. The other day I also carried my Beretta LTT Elite under a jacket. I also carry the P07 concealed while serving on TX Army National Guard duty (we are authorized).

Being a gun guy, I carry different guns all the time. Basically based on what I feel like carrying that day. Usually some sort of Glock, HK VP series, or 1911.

I don't own any guns I don't shoot well. As much as I like Revolvers, I rarely carry one due to lack of capacity.

Ideally, I should carry and shoot the same gun all the time, but what fun is that?

And I thought that I was the only person here that carried according to whatever took my fancy on any given day.

My carry choice is usually based on what I am wearing. I live in Central Florida where it can be quite hot and humid and I really don't have the physique for concealing a full size service pistol or even most 1911s. Generally, I wear shorts or Levis, tee shirts or untucked short-sleeve sports shirts even in the Winter. When it gets extremely cold here, I might have to wear a sweat shirt, long pants and a windbreaker. Most of the time I carry a Sig P365. When dressed in shorts and tee shirt, it's a Sig P938 or a Sig P238.

I carry one gun, a Kahr K9. I've carried it for many years. I do have different holsters that I use depending on what I wear. Does that count as a rotation?

I have a few favorites, but also indulge in playing the field occasionally with any good handguns with which I am familiar. I am a hobbyist. I can indulge whims.

Summer/winter carry does not enter into decisions on which handgun gets toted.

It's fine to carry the same side arm always, but coming down against other folks' carry rotation habit only shows a certain insecure dithering.

THE ONLY "rotation" I engaged in was when I was doing UC work. Depending on the deal I was working and how potentially bad the folks were I was running with I either carried my Colt Commander LW or the Star PD.
The Commander was carried when the risk was high
and
the Star when it wasn't quite so high.

The only difference was one carried more bullets than the other.
but
neither looked like "A Cop's gun".

At night on the bike In warm weather I carried the Redhawk 5.5” 44 mag. In the cold weather I carried a Redhawk 7.5” 44 mg. Other times it’s a cz82/9mm mak, security six snubby in 357. The 1911 may get into the pond but not often.

When I was carrying the 1911 more I was switching magazines more than guns.

I carry 4 or 5 different guns depending on circumstances and how much weight
I feel like carrying, There is only one thing that is consistent, they are all 1911's.
It is what I'm comfortable with and the controls are always the same. My only rule is
be comfortable with what I'm carrying.

Hobbyists that carry their favorite "gun of the day" are still better than not carrying at all. Most likely, a person that has dumped quite a bit of cash into numerous guns is also somewhat proficient. Ill go out on a limb and say they are more proficient than the sleeze bag he may get in an altercation with. After all, criminals are stupid and carry a Bersa Thunder. Shouldn't be too hard to work around that. Carry what you want when you want...…advantage good guy.

I assume you don't carry them all at the same time.

I would not say I have a set rotation. However, when I do change it is situation based. Since I live in SE Texas the majority of the year I am in short and a t-shirt. So M&P Shield or Ruger LCR are my main carry. While I am on Army National Guard duty I conceal carry a CZ P07 9mm. Since it has been cooler weather lately and I have actually needed to wear a jacket, I have carried the P07 more. I would love to have just one gun that I sue all the time, but it just does not work for me.

It wasn't, we just had a member notice on Live PD, that a large number of dumbasses that were apprehended were packing Thunders. The intelligence level of these fools was not directly related to their weapon choice. It was more a matter of affordability since a pile of crack was more important than a fine weapon.

The irony is that a venerable police detective advised my wife to get a... Bersa Thunder. That was many years ago though, before crazy recent sales pushes on .380 models (only).

So guessing that's what these guys were carrying. But must be just wannabe thugs because real ones would acquire on the street.

The quality, fit, finish and operation of hers is comparable to any well-made pistol. Now if you'd said Kel-Tec, not even a second thought to that.

I alternate back and forth between an FN Hi Power MkIII and a Series 80 1911. Area of town and possible threats dictate which. Recently, my son and I had to travel to a rough part of town. I switched out the 1911 for the Hi Power and two magazines of 9BPLE. An advantage of my rotation is that I'm able to use the same leather for both.

The only thing I like about winter is I carry owb most all of the time. Much more comfortable. It’s a HK vp40 or Glock 30 Gen 4. In summer it’s a Glock 19 gen4 iwb appendix most of the time.

Pretty much this ^
