I carried my 454 Alaskan one day. Did that count? No I still carry a 357 snub just like always.

P.S. I really did carry the 454 but I was just trying a new holster.

Packing heavier??? Would be hard to do, standard carry since just before the '94 AWB has been a Para-Ordnance P-14 (double stack 5" 1911 .45) and 2 spare mags.

I too have gone for the 'rifle in the trunk' option.

My EDC continues to be a G26 w/standard 10 round mag and a 12 rd mag for a reload and a LCP in my support side front pocket.

Been carrying a CCW and a BUG for so long, no change. Kimber LE Tact 2, w/2-8rd spares, 442 w/speedloader, and on occasion have become 3 Pistol Pete. 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!

Situational awareness is just a normal part of CCWing.

Went heavier in late 2012...

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.

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.

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

It weighs more than the HK 45!


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.

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
