    I'm gonna say 9.
    Figure one on each ankle, one on each hip, one in a shoulder holster under each arm, one S.O.B., then another in a belly band appendix carry. So that's 8. I can't figure out where else to put one unless you get one of these:

    Crimes are increasingly occurring with two or more armed thugs. It would be nice to have a few extra guns to pass off to friends if things got bad. I have several friends that shoot, and are familiar with guns, but don't carry every day. Paranoid or prepared? Start thinking outside the box, if you don't your becoming a sheep with a gun...

    For me it is 6. I think four pistols, a shotgun, and a rifle are just about right.

    The "pat" is the mark of someone new to carry. I very seldom touch my gun once it's in the holster.

    Theres nothing wrong with the holster. I wear OWB and a cover garmit, which can pull up when I'm working with my hands above my head.

    I beg to differ.

    Glocks are no more reliable than any other weapon platform. Yes, I've had failures with a Glock, and no, I wasn't limp-wristing.

    Any and every manmade device, and even man himself, will fail at some point.

    That's for sure.

    I carry two. CW9 Strong side, LCP or 642 front pocket.

    One primary and one BUG is plenty for me, with one or two extra magazines for the primary.

    I just reviwed my Copy of Blue Steel and Gunleather by John Bianchi( 1978).

    On page 81 it shows him carrying/concealing a total of 12 guns and a statement

    " it is possible to carryto carry up to 16 guns before body space starts to run out"
    This was before the mini guns that we have today Kel-Tec/Ruger

    Hmm, lets see, 1 OWB strong side, 1 OBW weak side(cross draw) 1 in a smart carry, slightly off center, in front,1 in a smart carry centered in the back, 1 in a shoulder holster, 1 in an ankle holster, and one in a pocket, would that be too much for someone 5'4" 125 lbs?

    j/k

    Definitely some varied opinions. Most of us are preaparing for an incident which mey never occur, but we are willing to be prepared? I can't say we can be too prepared. So to each his own.

    I think the idea of carrying platforms with interchangeable magazines would be advantageous. I am not sure what I could ankle carry, pocket carry, and hip carry that have interchangeable mags and would fit each position. Perhaps there is a market there for a trio of pistols (I am thinking thinner than glock/xd).

    Andy Stanford does say it is often faster to get to a backup gun rather than clear a malfunction or reload... something to think about.
