    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Red zone carry:

    M&P9 at 9:00, M&P9c OR 85 in my pocket, mag pouch with 2 mags at my 1:30. And if I carry my 5 shot then I will carry a speed-strip, its my M&P9c, then I don't carry any reloads for it since I can use my other 2 mags in my compact. I don't carry a light or spray.

    Yellow zone carry:

    M&P9 at 9:00 OR M&P9c in my pocket. Extra mag if I carry my compact.

    Green zone carry:

    M&P9 at 9:00 OR M&P9c OR 85 in my pocket. Speed-strip if I have my 5 shot with me.

    Since I work in a red zone, I carry a lot almost every day lol

I have found myself just carrying my P2000sk in my iwb holster at 4 oclock and an extra mag in my left front pocket.

    I also refuse to change my dress just to carry. the idea is to look natural anyway. I refuse to wear vests and things like that.
    I agree with this.

    Most of the time I carry just my gun in IWB, a pocket knife (sometimes my clipped, but mostly my clip-less deep in my pocket). I keep extra mags and flashlights in the car and around the house.

    I carry the following in jeans and a t-shirt or cargo shorts and a t-shirt:
    -Springfield XD9sc IWB or OWB at 4O'Clock in a Raven Concealment Phantom
    -16rnd spare mag IWB at 8:30 in a Raven Style Kydex mag pouch
    -Spyderco Tenacious in my left back pocket
    -Phenix PD20, pen and highleter clipped in my left front pocket
    -Wallet in my right back pocket
    -iPhone in my right front pocket

    I don't carry a lot and the flashlight I carry is so small that I don't worry about taking it out of my pocket during the day. I can't really think of anything else I need to carry, at least from a practical perspective. Nothing I have prints, unless I bend almost all the way to the ground. No one even thinks twice about the knife in my back pocket or the pocket clip on my flashlight.

    Gun du Jour is carried OWB at 4:00, wallet in the right rear pocket, cell phone in it's own clip on holster @ 10:00, knife, spare change, and cigarette lighter all go in the left rear pocket, optional multi-tool and tac light in belt cases on my left hip. Keys go in a jacket pocket in cold weather or clip to a belt loop in warm weather.

    I have three potential carry guns (Glock 17/Bersa 380cc/Ruger SLR) and they are all carried, right side 4 o'clock position via a IWB Kholster. No spare mags, but carry one speed strip for the LCR, when carried. No flashlight. Folding 4" spring assist knife clipped to right front pocket. Cell phone somewhere, usually belt clip holster.

    I refuse to wear vests and "man purses"
    ..... yeah here in texas, might as well scream real loud "hey guys i'm carrying a GUN!" when you're wearing a vest or a man purse. i just saw a guy wearing a maxpedition belt bag @ the parks mall and gave him a nod and a smirk.... he knew what i was thinking. blownsvt said it best, try to look as if you're not carrying. as for me, i like to keep it simple. especially when the texas heat comes!!!!
    but as always to each is own. carry on my friends!!!!!

    These days, I really have to be in the mood to lock n’ load with all my battle gear. Yeah, I use to bolt on my gun/light/knife/reload & OC, but everything eventually gets old. Anyway, on most lazy days I’ll just slip my customized S&W 640 into my Thunderwear or IWB rig' and drive off. Conversely, if I’m feeling’ energized and frisky (seldom), I may dress up like’ Tom Cruise in the Last Samurai.

    M&P9c in a (soon to be replaced) CTAC at 3:30, (not pictured) 2 17rd mags at 7:00 in RCS double mag carrier, knife and keys in right front pocket, cell in left front pocket, flashlight and wallet in left rear pocket. This is a Tshirt or "fashionable" polo day.

    I have started wearing vented hiking/fishing style button up shirts as they conceal better and keep me cooler. When wearing those the 9c goes away in favor of a M&P9pro with TLR1 worn OWB in a RCS phantom lc. I recently bought a VertX coldblack polo which should also allow for this method of carry without being too hot in the Texas summer.

    I don't leave home without a 1911, my wallet, keys, cell phone, and usually a mini flashlight.

    Oh yeah...and lip gloss.
