    My carry habits remain unchanged. Same gun, same amount of ammunition. I removed the Sig Sauer sticker from the back of the mom wagon so I don't scare the others at my son's preschool. Teaching my son to hide, evade and play dead.

    I was involved in counter/anti terrorism (on the periphery) for years . If you don't think Mumbai or Beslan can happen here you are deluding yourself. Will you save the day if you are appropriately armed? Who can tell, but probably not. Will you be able to save your own sorry hide? Quite possibly and having the right tools and and training to use them will increase your likelyhood of success.

    I've went from selling my XD-9 about 4 years ago (Never CCW, just had it mainly for a nightstand gun) To now where i'll be carrying an XD-40 everywhere in 2013.

    Op, can i ask why you choose to run Win PDX1's?

    I know they will always go bang and it will do the job... But it seems the general consensus has gravitated toward HST/Gold Dots/Ranger T's

    I am currently running the PDX1's, but any bonded bullet will do. I carried Gold Dot's for years as well. The PDX1's function flawlessly, just as the Gold Dots did (actually, I've yet to find a JHP or FMJ round that won't run flawlessly in the the XD. I prefer the heavier 180gr to the 155 or 165gr in any of the rounds. I seem to remember I went with the PDX1 because I found a great deal and I purchased 250 rounds.

    Thanks. Was just curious if maybe you had some specific reasoning for carrying them.

    I'm sure they'll do the job as well as any others if you're doing your part...

    I got me a box of 180 HST's and a box of 165 Ranger T's on the way. Never used a .40 before so i'm wanting to do some testing :)

    Yes, as society continues to crumble I have moved from the .380 to the .40
    I feel that the likelihood of being confronted by multiple bad guys is increasing.

    I haven't changed a thing. I always carry the biggest and the most I can at any given time, and that varies between two Glock's (one at a time and each with a spare mag) a snub for super deep concealment, which is generally Monday-Friday.

    As crazy as always here in LA county. I am drinking less. Not expecting any political terrorism. Carry habits don't make one more effective than one who habitually doesn't carry. Training is something very different; and I commend those of you who allude to SA, cool stuff notwithstanding.

    Welcome back, Betty, since Feb '09! Great advice for kids.

    No changes here other than going over (SA) plans with the family again. One gun 31 rounds. When the crew is together we all carry a decent sized folder. My daughters know some basic self defense moves. Add a knife to the mix and one BG will get a little more than he bargained for. There has been a weird vibe since O got re elected. Keep the head up, gun cocked and feet set on go.

    My carry habits haven't changed, but I'm planning on making a couple changes. I already carry all the time. Once I find a comfortable way to carry a spare mag IWB, I'll be adding that.

    With recent events, I'm looking at adding a rifle and an active shooter response bag to my trunk. The bag will be minimal, as I already have a get-home bag. It's going to be a spare magazine or two, a couple orange SOF-T Tourniquets, Israeli bandages, QuikClot, HALO Chest Seals, and a few sharpies (to mark the time the tourniquet was applied, the type of hemostatic agent used, etc.).

    There are VERY few scenarios where the rifle would be useful, but having a blow-out kit that can treat multiple wounds until EMS is able to get to them could be a life saver. I do a fair amount of driving and in a lot of places, there isn't a hospital nearby, so it would also come in handy at car accident where someone is bleeding severely.
