John's Everyday Carry...

I generally carry an H&K VP-9 in a DeSantis belt-slide (OWB) holster. Thanks to an interchangeable backstrap and side grip panels, it fits my hand perfectly. It has night sights, the trigger is superb, and I shoot it well. Best of all, it has never malfunctioned in more than 2,000 rounds of both practice and quality defensive ammunition.
