or considering it at least? What are you carrying or considering?

My typical load-out is a 1911 and 2 spare mags, which totals 25 rounds of 10MM or .45ACP. Lately I've been thinking about resurrecting an older G20, having the grip shaped at a 1911 angle and putting some new night sights on it. Maybe get a more concealable holster for it too.

With 2 mags my round count goes from 25 to 46. I'm probably more likely to get struck by lighting than face and active shooter scenario like we've been seeing, but I've been thinking that having a heavy load-out sorted out ahead of time for dicier situations may not be a bad idea.

Don't overthink it. 25 rounds is going to be plenty, as long as you're as proficient as possible. HOWEVER, I have read of shootings where the good guy ran a 7 or 8 shot 1911 dry and the fight wasn't over. I like at least 12 in the mag, with one spare mag. The 1911 is a classic but for the size and weight for it to only hold 8ish? Meh.

I considered carrying my G22 concealed more often but under just a t-shirt it prints too much for my liking. I don't really feel that much more outgunned carrying my Springfield XDm 3.8c

A. That is literally true - far more people get struck by lightning.

B. "like we've been seeing"? There isn't a trend and I really don't get why anybody acts like there is, every time one of these things happens. There was a crazy shooter with a gun - so the world now has one less craxy shooter. Get a grip.

I have been carrying a bigger gun because it's christmas, the high robbery season, and I've been going to place where danger is more liekly. Other than that, nothing special is going on.

This time of year, I can easily conceal my G20 and carry it almost exclusively. But like Bren says, I don't consider any one crazy shooter a trend, so it has nothing to do with that. Paranoia will destroy ya. Carry what you are best with and be prepared in your training. In the end, that is what is going to save you when the SHTF.

12-26-2012, 22:38
Nah. I'm sticking with my CM9 and a spare mag with another in the truck. Being that I rarely go to any place any shooter would target (mall, walmart, etc), I carry more for the case of car jacking or robbery at a gas station. And I feel perfectly fine with a single stack 9 full of 124gr +p Gold Dots that I'm pretty proficient with. Plus I don't have to change guns according to dress, I only have to decide on either a pocket or IWB holster.

12-26-2012, 22:46
All I have ever carried is a full size 1911 in .45 acp. My bug is a .357 magnum on my ankle. I feel pretty heavy already.

12-26-2012, 22:48
At the moment I'm carrying a heavier gun - a CZ Shadow, which weighs about 3 lbs, but with just an 18 round magazine.

NEOH212
12-26-2012, 23:02
Nope. Still carrying the HK 45 and one spare mag.

However, I have been packing heavier in the sense of toying with carrying my Sig 220.

It weighs more than the HK 45!

12-26-2012, 23:25
I alternate between a Colt M1991A1 with 2 spare magazines in .45 Automatic to a Glock 20 10mm with 1 spare magazine.
I favor the 10mm if I am hiking in the woods.

Kasinefect
12-27-2012, 02:55
I carried a 1911 for many years and I still have a couple in the safe. I recently found a Sig 220 that I am debating starting to carry though I feel quite safe with a Glock 9mm or a J frame Smith.

12-27-2012, 08:22
If it is jacket weather, I carry my G-19 and one spare magazine (not a "clip" as some foolish antis think). If the weather is warm, my Bersa .380 and one spare magazine. I am going to qualify with my shotgun this year and start keeping it in my truck.

Mostly my Kahr PM9 IWB due to comfort, but find myself carrying the HK P2000SK .40 LEM more regularly as well. Both are amazing guns, but I think those HK fans are on to something!

Not a chance, way too much weight. A .45 round weighs approx. 1 oz. You start with a heavy gun then add another gun+ with all that ammo.

I'll stick with my 13+1 G23 or even the 10+1 G26 if I really want to go light.

So the other night I ran into the Chief at a Christmas Party. I asked him if he carries off duty.

"As Chief, I am never off duty. If I am called in to a crime scene or fatal auto accident I MUST be in possession of my firearm and shield."

I gathered it was some sort of legal requirement.

He had his J-frame snubby on his ankle.

12-27-2012, 09:31
I actually went down in weight and round count. My former EDC was. Sig P229 with a 17 round mag and one spare 15 rd mag. But I wanted something lighter so I now carry a G19 with one spare mag. Until I can find some 17 round mags I am 2 rounds down.

I do love the fact that the 19 weighs less loaded than the 229 did empty as that really helps my back.

With all of the negativity about using a gun for self-defense in Florida lately I've started also carrying my stun gun. If someone doesn't show a weapon I'll try that first. If I'm overpowered and they take it away from me then I'll use my firearm.

12-27-2012, 13:22
Still a SW 638, but now aiwb rather than in the pocket. Easier access for me, ymmv.

Bufford
12-27-2012, 14:31
Still my P238 in dress clothes or G26 w+2 when in jeans. I admit that I did carry the Glock and an extra mag MORE during the holidays at the insane malls while shopping.

Sometimes. Depends (activities and planned location of same).

Instead of one of my 5-shot J's, I've taken to carrying one of my subcompact/compact pistols with 6, 7, 8 or even 10-rd magazines, and a spare magazine. :wow:

When I don't carry my LCP w/spare mag, that is. ;)

I've been working on maintaining my skillset, too. (Necessary as an instructor, and since I'm of the school-of-thought that an instructor should be able to demonstrate anything being taught, at any time ... unlike some newer instructors who have come back from their basic school saying they've been told not to shoot in front of people they're training :dunno: - but that's a topic for another day.)

12-28-2012, 08:54
No. Same as always. Glock or 1911. Perhaps one spare mag. or considering it at least? What are you carrying or considering?

Walther PPS 9mm with a spare mag. I feel more than comfortable with that. I really don't feel I need more firepower than that for "self defense".

JBL13
12-28-2012, 11:23
I tend to carry something bigger in the winter since it's easier to dress around a larger gun. That usually means a G21SF or a 3" GP100 as primary. In the summer (at least this past summer), I carried a .357 LCR as primary.

I nearly always carry a .38 LCR as backup.

Stvan1
12-28-2012, 11:49
G22 converted to 357sig in an ultra infidel, very comfortable for me, or a SA XDS in a N82 basic holster. I'm feeling safe with either one.

These active shooter scenario's involve usually one shooter and even if it was two, one magazine should take care of things. If you start spraying bullets all around you will be the problem.

12-28-2012, 13:52
I just got a G19 so I'm carrying that instead of the G26.

caraker0341
12-28-2012, 22:24
Depends on where I'm going. Malls, theaters and other high traffic areas with my family, I carry a G22 with 135 HSTs and 2 spare magazines. If I go out alone, a G19 with 9BP and 1 spare magazine. Same holster and manner of dress.

Knowing that 46 rounds is probably going to be overkill for that one in a zillion that my family and I are caught in a crapstorm that requires a gun does not cause me to lose a single wink of sleep. The alternative has kept me awake at night.

I'm still carrying my 26 and occasionally the 19 but i am on high alert. In my area times are hard for people that might have been borderline criminals. Twice over the holidays ive had situations with people coming to my farm asking about jobs then scrap metal. One guy even wanted to walk around and see if he could find some pecans. This guy is a known criminal that just got out of a 10 year prison stay. Nothing happened but i was glad i was protected. Both times these guys were only feet away and made me wonder what people that dont carry one in the chamber would do if things went bad. I'm just saying dont walk around with your hand on your gun but definitely be more aware of your surroundings.

I've switched from usually carrying a Sig 226 .40 cal or P220 to carrying either my G19 with an extra mag or my P226 with the 20 round mags. Also I'm now carrying at least 1 spare mag always. It is more because of the season then other things.

Nothing changes for me, but I change guns depending on my clothes. Normally, I have my Kahr PM9 and a spare mag in my pockets. I bought a Springfield Armory XDs, and after it earns my trust, it may become my primary pocket gun.

My IWB alternates between my Glock 27, Glock 19 or my Ruger LCR. OWB holster may be a Glock 20.

Overall, the Glock 27 or 19 cover most situations. The goal is to always have at least something on my person. At home, I keep a second bigger gun very near as well.

Like Janice I carried a G27 for years.
Recently I upgraded to a HK45C with two HK45CT extended mags for reload.
Running Winchester Ranger T-Series 230 gr +P.

Pocket carry it was a S&W 342 ti 38 +P.
Then I upgraded to a S&W 640-1 357.
And just recently upgraded again to a HK P2000SK 40 LEM.

When I have the opportunity, I always upgrade.

Added a Bersa 7 rd Thunder 380acp for outside pocket carrier in my jacket. Since wifey has LTCH, can hand her either 442(38 spec), or Bersa 380acp. Recently noticed holsters that fit 1911A, also fit Bersa, so am looking for a left hand model, to balance out the right hand Kimber. The Mall looks better that way!

CCW'd G27 for 10yrs after leaving LEO work. It was my BUG for duty G22 duty. Great handgun. For off duty CCW almost always carried with standard 9rd mag + a spare G22 mag.

In the past two months, I've transitioned to a new G30SF with standard 9rd mag (yes, all those rounds do fit) + a spare G21 mag.

They're both keepers, of course.

Been carrying my Glock 27 with the 13 round Glock mag with spacer and 1 in the chamber. Spare Glock mag is 15. Using the Galco Concealable holster which is comfortable and conceals well under my shirt here in Florida.

So the other night I ran into the Chief at a Christmas Party. I asked him if he carries off duty.

"As Chief, I am never off duty. If I am called in to a crime scene or fatal auto accident I MUST be in possession of my firearm and shield."

I gathered it was some sort of legal requirement.

He had his J-frame snubby on his ankle.
It's a job/policy requirement. My question would be "why wouldn't he".

Nope. I carry a G29, G30, or G33 depending on what mood I'm in for that day. Will continue to do so.

I work as executive protection, I carry a 17L with a +2 base, 3-33 round mags and a 17 round mag. with 147gr +p+ gold dots, and my back up is my G23 with 2-22 round mags with 180gr Bonded golden sabres. Then in the trunk is 870 with high vis sigts and full of 3/4 oz. high velocity slugs, VA will not catch up with the times and make a patrol rifle cert. so i am stuck with a shotgun.

Nope. Still carrying the HK 45 and one spare mag.

However, I have been packing heavier in the sense of toying with carrying my Sig 220.

It weighs more than the HK 45!


:rofl:

I always bought a 220 at my LGS earlier this week. The thing is a brick. Loved it, but not sure if i'd carry it IWB. Definitely want to buy a sig though.

This is GLOCK talk; what is all this talk about Sigs?

Same as usual for me. I carry a Glock 19 with 2 spare mags on the opposite side. If I can carry my Glock 17, I will if dress will allow it. But either way I am not too worried as I feel that I am adequately prepared for most things I will encounter.

Situational awareness is just a normal part of CCWing.
There's always room for improvement no matter who you are, hence the word "increased" in my post.

Compared to 7+1 of .45 in my old 1911 vs 13+1 of .45 in my xdm, maybe a little. The glocks same. 17 rounds 9mm
