    That's the answer ... and, really, all anyone need know. IOW: how quickly do you want death to stop, when it's got its sights on you or your children? Pretty simple, actually.

    Quick run to the store, maybe only the Tomcat; mostly though, the Glock 23.

    No, my daily carry is a 5"1911, and two spare mags. Doesnt matter if I'm going to church on sunday mornin or the local stop and rob at 0200 to buy smokes.

    If I feel that my .45 isnt enough, I generally dont go.

    I’ve seen answers here that start with the notion that if a person knows they’ll have to defend themselves they’ll bring X pistol. I guess I see things a little differently. On a daily basis, I have the G22 or G23 strapped to me. (Identical set-ups on the guns, the 23 is just a bit smaller.) If I were to know I was going to get into a fight, I’d probably bring both along, with no intention of using either. If I know ahead of time that the fight is on, I’ll bring along an A2 variant black rifle and 10-12 magazines. Sorry, but I’ve yet to see a situation where a rifle couldn’t do it better.

    I’m in the process of building a scout rifle, so in the future that may be an option. But, being bolt action, I would guess the black rifle would still be choice #1. About the only change I’d make to that would be the addition of an M203 under the barrel, but I haven’t found a way to make that legal as of yet.

    It doesn't matter where I go. Either my Glock 19 or my 26. I carry the same ammo in each. Speer Gold Dots 124 gr JHP's. At times an extra mag.

    Although I have several handguns of varying calibers, I carry the same handgun no matter where I go. I will occassionally carry a spare magazine, but always the same handgun. Familiarity and consistency are important factors, IMHO.

    I carry the same gun, all the time. In a time of urgency, I want to be able to instinctively operate the gun, the same way, every time, with no thought to which one I have with me today. My rule: simplicity, simplicity, simplicity. As for the bad part of town, unless I have a compelling need to be there, I drive around it and avoid it.

    Beware the Man with only one gun, He most likely knows how to use it.
