    Sounds good to me. I've carried one weak side cross-draw, one strong side, and one SOB before. I haven't considered the ankle aspect yet. May be my choice for pants (jeans).

    I've carried 3 before just to see if I could do it. I had my 1911 OC at my 3, I had my Glock concealed at my 6 and my KelTec in my pocket. :-) Pocket knife and a tazer. Needless to say I was "armed to the teeth"

    I try to carry 2 J-frames: a 640-1 on my belt and a 637-1 in my pocket.

    I'm not sure that I can re-load one fast enough. Also, it's so natural to have my hand in my pocket.

    When getting undressed starts to look like Tackleberry's love scene from Police Academy II, you're carrying too many guns.
    Yes, the world has gotten smaller, but it will always be too big to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats.

    I have a keltec in an ankle holster wearing pants or a pocket holster when in shorts. Along with a 1911 or my sig 229.

    The BUG or not to BUG discussion will go on forever. IMHO, as a civilian I see no need for a BUG. So, yes I think 3 is certainly too many for me.

    Depends on what you are doing and where you are going. I'd say no more than 2(personal preferance), but I also know someone who carries one in a shoulder rig, a pocket holster and an ankle holster with another in the center console of his truck... And YES, I have to agree with The Arverni

    More than 3 is too many. Two is a lot of steel.

    You should also have a knife or some other non-lethal stuff if you're in full Mall-Ninja mode.

    I am picturing Neo from the first Matrix movie while walking into the Federal Building to save Morpheus....must have had as much weight in guns as his own body weight!

    I've always just had my SV and my CRKT Mini My Tighe. The SV has been so reliable it count it as my BUG.
