    some kind of a nut

    Since I've been carrying, my little Ruger LCP and ankle holster are part of my clothing. Socks, shoes, holster, pants... the LCP stays on my leg until I take my pants off at night. Not that it needs to be on me in the house, it's just that there's no reason to make a special effort to remove it.

    Now that it's cold enough to wear a jacket, I've been carrying a 2" revolver in a shoulder holster. I pull the holster on before my jacket (my insulated vest works just as well) when I go outside. Generally, when I take the jacket or vest off, I take the holster off as well.

    So, yesterday I'm out at the hardware store, and it suddenly struck me that I'm wearing TWO guns. If I were to be injured and taken to the hospital, or have an encounter with the local PD, surely they'd think I was some kind of a nut.

    I can't see any reason to take the Ruger off just because I shrugged into the shoulder holster. The Ruger is just there, like my wrist watch or underwear.

    I see no reason to alter your method.

    There is a limit to what you can control in an altercation, but two guns seems quite feasible and reasonable, IMHO.

    I've gone back to carrying just one, because I perceive my risk is lower these days. I may regret that decision?

    {edit} Hmmm... but there is a PM9 in my work desk drawer too... Yup. I'm a nut.

    You are not a nut, you are someone who is well prepared.

    My best friend had a cousin who had been a Navy Seal back in the late 1970's. After he got out, the guy got a job driving a taxi in his Florida hometown. Apparently, he was into guns big time and had several that he carried on a regular basis.

    He got into an altercation with someone and instead of using any one of his handguns, he opened up a Navy Seal can of whoopin' and beat this guy to a pulp. The Cops came, detained and frisked him. The found at least four hand guns on him in various places. He even told them he had a small caliber pistol in a crotch holster and the Cop told him that was one he could keep.

    Since the guy he put a thorough beat down on had instigated the incident, they let my buddy's cousin go and he got all his handguns back.

    I think you are really far from being a nut-case.

    From One Nut to another, I have Two Guns on me all day every day. The only CCW State that allows only One Gun is New Mexico, from what I here. If asked why I felt the need for Two Guns, my reply starts with, all my Police friends carry Two. After that I go threw the list. Injury to main gun hand, malfunction to main gun, arm another capable person such as my wife, New York Reload. to name a few.

    I agree, you are a nut. And so is anyone who keeps a spare tire in their trunk.

    Well, if your a nut for carrying 2 guns, you're in good company. There are LOTS of people who do.

    Id say being a nut is a subjective thing. I dont wear a wristwatch or underware.
