How many still carrying?

Just wondering how many in here are still using their solo as their primary carry gun?

Solo 2013 Model--Yonkered = Success

My father carries mine every single day and the last time we took it to the range it went through a box of ammo with no issues.

Still carrying my Solo CDP I bought last year. Just took the laser grips off and put a set of rosewood grips from CFP on it.

It's been my summer/warm weather carry for years. Always reliable.

I do. It is simply to easy to carry. I bought it to carry occasionally when I wanted something smaller than my Shield. It shoots too good, and it too easy to carry to justify carrying the Shield, although I did break the Shield out the other day and carried it a few days. I love J-Frames too, but the Solo is the perfect size, and I shoot it well. It has never failed to go bang with my defensive ammo. To quote a friend of mine, it feels like a well worn bar of soap.

And it's probably twice as deadly.

I will still carry my solo from the safe to my desktop for a pic. Does that count?

Nice Buck 505 Chattanooga Phil.

I was asking initially about who’s still carrying because I’m getting my concealed carry license here in Florida soon and I’m needing a discreet gun to work with light clothing. Aside from the Solo, I have a Micro 9, a P938, and a CZ Rami on the short list. I’ll be taking the Solo and Sig to the range later today to try out some ammo and get a better feel of how they compare. The rest will follow in the next few weeks. So, I thought I’d take an informal survey of who’s still carrying their Solo long term while I test the contenders out. Thanks all for answering. I really appreciate it.

Well, you've got some great choices for sure. I myself would love to hear about your decision process and the results of your comparison.
