    Situational awareness is just a normal part of CCWing.
     
  2. 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.

    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.

    Nice selection! Three different calibers!

    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.

    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
