This is a discussion on I'll be honest.

Now that I'm retired, I have a lot more time to ride my Harley Davidson M/C. When it's hot, I'll sometimes lock the larger pistol (Kimber Ultra Raptor .45ACP) in the tour pack, so I can shed the concealment garment, and just go with the pocket pistol (Kimber Solo Carry .9mm). Only time I'm not armed is when I'm in my jammies within the castle walls.
To answer the OP's question, nothing has changed in my world. Always carry 2, multiple reloads for primary, one spare mag for backup, surefire flashlight, and a benchmade automatic pocket knife. Everybody is safer when I'm in the vicinity. Be safe.

All I can think of is "And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold".

Yes the LC9 is cleared and in the safe. The Glock 26 now comes with me along with my M4 carbine and about 100 rounds. I use a skateboard case for it. I can lock it in my office ( I have a safe there )
I haven't changed yet but I admit that my LCR .38 and speed loader have been feeling a bit inadequate recently. I've been considering picking up a Glock 27 for carry but I am trying to not make any impulse buys. I'm going to give it a few more weeks. If I still feel how I feel now I will consider making a change.

I carry my 357 in a cell pal, 2 speed strips in the cell case, 9mm in a Sneaky Pete spare clip in back left pocket, and 380 in wallet holster in back right pocket spare clip in back left. Depends on situation as to which to draw and use. 'Give me your wallet' gets the 380, a little more distance gets the 9mm, still more distance and or time gets the 357.
Overkill? Maybe. Often it is just the 357 OR the 9mm. The 380 bug is always with me.
Officer: Why did you shoot him with 3 different calibers?
Me: Cause I couldn't fit the shotgun in my pocket to make it 4.
2 guns... 35 plus rounds, My world has not changed that much!

Things gun forums have taught me:
-Some people shoot guns others "run" them.
-I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
-Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
-Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!
I am retired and I watch things around me even closer it seems that my group has become a target for the sucker punch and get scrips or what ever I may have. I now live where my pemit is not legal and I get lonesome and all I have is my cane which was introduced to a young man and I did say I was sorry
+1 Now carry a BUG with my EDC for about a year now.

I also have re-evaluated my carry. I suffered a shoulder injury last summer so have ordered left hand IWB holsters for both my LC9 and 1911. My lc9 will be for deep concealment such as work and the 1911 will be for all other times. Previously have only open carried the 1911. It will now be there for those times OC is not convenient.
My primary was a G26, changed it a few months ago to a G29.....my Bug is either a Keltec .380 or a J frame .38
I've worked in schools for many moons...always armed myself the moment I got home.
This summer that has changed...retired a second and final time.
I really go nowhere I cannot carry, so now I'm armed 24/7...I like it that way.
