    Just my Colt New Agent 45 and two spare mags, total of 22 rounds, should be more than enough. My holster of choice is IWB Crossbreed.

    I'm not in a very hazardous area or occupation, so I'm not in enough dangerous situations to warrant more then one gun with one mag or speed loader. I'm just going with the odds. IF anything ever happens and I need to draw my weapon, if it does anything besides go "bang" I'm probably out of time to draw my second. I do carry a utility knife (leather man), but it's just such a cool tool. Everything but a nail clipper. I use that thing almost every day. Wife EXPECTS me to carry ti, just like she expects me to be armed.
    again, as a civilian I need to wait until the treat is shown and then react to it. Just my opinion. Nothing wrong with anyone who feels a need to carry a second firearm or consider it as their "reload".

    Two guns, yes.

    On the belt, no.

    I only carry one, but I have considered carrying a compact back-up(40sw or 9mm)

    I have seen no reason to consider carrying a back-up gun. If I were a LEO, and considered I would intervene in a robbery or crime off duty, then I would carry a gun similar to my duty gun, and probably a small BU.

    But I am not and I do not.

    On one forum some of the "big boys" carry at least two and often three.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    When traveling I carry a BUG , or in higher risk areas. Maybe if I lived in a higher risk area I might carry a BUG or multiple guns every day.

    I will start carrying 2 guns, I got my 640 for a BUG and wish to pocket carry when I can't carry anything else. A BUG just makes sense to me.. peace of mind if your weapon is no longer available (BG wrestled it away) or primary gun has serious malfunction.

    For most people in ordinary situations, I think it overkill and perhaps even slightly "mall ninjaish" to carry a BUG, but if it makes you happy there is nothing wrong with that either.

    Mechanical things break, sometimes at inopportune times. I have experience with Murphy's Law.

    Call me a mall ninja if you desire, but if/when my primary breaks or malfunctions, or my strong arm becomes disabled, I'll be prepared.

    I'm not calling anyone a mall ninja, it just might be a little "ish" We all do some things that could be considered "ish", myself included.

    I carry two, but only one on my belt. Extra mag for each, no less than three knives and three flashlights (two if you ignore the one on my keychain, but is brighter than most fullsize lights). The only time I'd have two on my belt is if I was carrying three guns. Done it before.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    I only dual carry if you consider a knife in addition to a firearm. While I haven't yet bought any carry firearms(was issued my firearm as duty weapon and am waiting for my purchase permit) I doubt I will ever carry 2 firearms in an off-duty situation.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
