    That's a good deciding factor.

    Or, Just keep adding one at a time. When you get to the point of walking funny or you can't sit down, take one off. That's your number!

    I generally carry 2 if anyone wants to jump on the bandwagon.

    I carry two while working. I carry one off-duty. On rare occasions I carry two off-duty. I only do this if I know I will be going into a bad neighborhood.

    I wouldn't want to carry three guns. Too many guns to worry about retaining. But if that is what you want to do, have at it.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    IMHO---unless you are in a career that puts you in danger every day I think 1 is enough, but I may very well be in the minority here.

    One other thought is I don't live where you do, so I may not understand what threats you see every day.

    Sounds a bit over the top for civilian carry but to each their own. ~

    You have three different guns with three different calibers and three different mag types that are not interchangeable. So where are you gonna carry the spare mags and not get them mixed up?
    I would go with 2 of the PF 9s and the MP 40 and forget the p3at. If I really felt the need for three guns that is.

    Why is everyone so dead set on knocking carrying 3 guns? Who cares? Seriously, what does it matter to you how many guns Average Joe with his permit carries?
    I rebel against the concept of "Too Many Guns." Too many guns is just something my wife says when she thinks I am spending too much time on the reload bench.

    Edit: Geno's ammo/magazine argument is pretty sound though. Keeping 1 caliber with interchangeable magazines is a pretty good idea if multiple carrying. Not always possible, but a good strategy when making the purchases.

    It all depends on how many friends I have with me, I don't want any of them to feel left out if things go bad.

    You will find me an advocate of multiple gun carry.

    I do this for a few reasons. The most common of which are:

    Primary could fail
    Could Be Wounded in gun hand/arm (very likely)
    May not be able to draw with primary hand (has personally happened)
    May need a reload (fastest reload is a another gun)
    May need to arm a second party (very frequent among off duty officers where one doesn't carry off duty)
    May find oneself in a position unable to draw primary gun from (that's why I like a gun on my ankle when driving or sitting behind a desk)

    I carry a minimum of two guns off duty, with two reloads for each gun. If conditions and dress permit I carry three. BTW: The time I needed a BUG I was carrying with a CCW and not a LEO.

    I have never heard a single person who has actually been in a gunfight ever say they had too many guns when it happened!

    There have though, been plenty of people who have survived a gunfight state they wished they had more guns or more ammo at the time it happened, and that's a fact.

    If you're thinking of carrying a good Primary firearm and a Back Up firearm, I don't see anything wrong with that. In fact, I think it's prudent!

    I also carry two and sometimes 3 guns routinely, but that's me.

    For me, it's about management of the gun(s). I seem to spend a fair amount of time throughout the day checking to make sure the gun is proper position, is not printing, etc. I would probably end up looking like a 1 arm paper hanger if I had 3 on various parts of my body. Comfort is an issue and 3 guns is not going to be comfortable for me. I sometimes carry a gun in the truck that I can access while sitting and the other in a pocket holster.
