    Yeah...carrying 16-18/7 can be a real PITA, especially with all the stuff that I carry (usually 2 guns, 4-5 knives, spare mag, flashlight, etc.). However, I definately feel that it's one of those "better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it" situations.

    I think the thing that bugs me the most is the actual "dressing around the gun." In hot weather it sucks to have to wear an extra layer just to cover my waistline.

    And then, of course, there's the whole "time required to gear-up/down" factor. Especially where the GF is concerned..."hold on, I gotta take off all my weapons..."

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    I'm going to design some levi's with velcro inseams and a gun belt with two quick-release pins (one on each side). Pull the two pins, gun belt breaks in two, Rrrrrip....NEKKID!

    Zero to nekkid almost as fast as you can clear leather.

    For just such emergencies.

    I carry my Keltec P11 in an ankle holster, with a Beretta Tomcat in my pocket. The Tomcat makes enough noise and ducking for me to get to the P11. Thank God I haven't had to really use it. I also sometimes carry another mouse gun (PT22) with quickshock ammo as a backup. I know, friends don't let friends carry mouse guns, but Quickshock ammo give a decent wound channel.

    Try playing some quiet music at low volume with candlelight, wine.........Could be turned into an "art form"

    Whew.....

    In the hot TX summer, I go light with a Glock 26 (pocket carry w/holster), 1 knife, leatherman, cell....in cargo shorts and light shirt...that's about all I can stand down here.

    For me it all comes down to cover garments; they're hot and not in keeping with my style of dress. I really can't untuck for work or even when away from work. I'll wear a fishing vest when out fishing and thought about a leather vest from Kahr but that would be real hot here in Missouri so I end up carrying my P3AT alot in a smart carry or a pocket holster. It's the easiest option that allows me to be carrying something. Don't know why, but I'd like to get a NAA mini in .22 mag for the church suit.

    God Bless
