    Carry a pistola to make (legal) holes.

    Carry a cell phone to call 911, your attorney, spouse or momma. Your life can go from humdrum to very interesting in a literal heartbeat.

    Keep it simple, as others have said. I carry my gun, an extra mag, small pocket knife that clips in my rear pocket, cell phone, wallet, and my key chain has a small Photon ReX LED. All of that fits easily into board shorts, jeans, dockers, scrubs, or whatever I happen to be wearing.

    A properly holstered, loaded firearm .

    All else is optional. Many options are desirable. But, If you're going to carry, carry holstered.

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    In my opinion...

    D) OC? Only you can decide, but I recommend CC
    E) Knife (almost always have one of my many knives on my anyhow) Yes, if even a small one
    F) Cell phone, I always actually have two on me- work phone and personal phone Yes
    G) rubber gloves, First aid stuff, quik-clot??? Does anyone carry that to tend to the BG you just stopped or anything else that comes up Personal decision

    Of course it's always a balance of being prepared without having a full cops duty belt which would look ridiculous and not be a realistic option (Exactly!). So what do I ALWAYS need to have on me and how do you carry it?

    Technically the way the WI CC law is written you are allowed to posses A concealed weapon, so whether we can even carry more than one or not is yet to be determined from my understanding. But I don't have the luxury of having a backup weapon at this point and not sure I would ever carry one to be honest but we'll see.
    One late addition would be pepper spray. This non-lethal form of defense may not only come in handy, it can help to show that you're not just carrying to shoot 'em up!

    Cheers, & be safe over there!

    Prosecutors job is to make you look guilty no matter how innocent you are so unfortunately they can try to make you out to be whoever they want and depending on how firearm familiar your jury is, it may not be that hard. Just my $.05 (inflation...)

    I had never owned a cell phone in my life but after reading many posts on here about being the first to call 911 after an encounter I made it a point to get me a trac phone. Now I consider it mandatory the weapon and the phone be carried together.
