Two best edc pistols

1. Lightweight commander 9mm
2. HK P 2000 ( with action job by Lazy Wolf - $300 + 12 month wait - to bring the trigger almost on a par with the 1911 trigger). It has a magazine that carries 13 9mm rounds so a little more firepower than the 1911.
However, I shoot the 1911 better so it is on top.
So what is your deadly duo?

Whatever you can use effectively to achieve an end.

This varies from person to person.

Older SIG P220 .45 ACP (Wearing it now)
SIG P938 Extreme (first pick if running errands in our 1 stoplight town.)

Glock 30s also sits in the carry drawer and gets picked for specific times/purposes.

All carried IWB. Any of the three year round. Even in the 100+ Texas summers.
