Beth's Everyday Carry...

My EDC of choice includes both the Springfield Armory XD-S and the SIG Sauer P365. I am very comfortable and proficient with my XD-S (which I use frequently in competitive shooting) and I typically purse carry this as a backup gun. The 365 has a slim enough profile for me to conceal fairly well; plus, I love the 10- or 12-round magazine capacity.
