    Michigan is not technically a "one gun" state, but our law is vague in its wording. Most jurisdictions accept that multiple CCW is Ok, but there are a very few prosecutors, most notably, Wayne County (Detroit) IIRC, that has stated that multiple carry guns will be prosecuted even if they are eventually thrown out of court.

    I frankly don't understand how people can walk around without feeling nervous/uneasy/paranoid when using a OWB, or a IWB (non-tuckable), or a shoulder holster in public! Maybe it's just me…
    Everybody has a different comfort level regarding their carry. Personally, I carry 95% of the time strong-side OWB. "Full" concealment as you describe it is less than efficient in my mind. If I can not access my CCW is a swift and relatively easy manner, then it might as well be locked in a safe at home. Certainly there are times when a tucked IWB mode of carry is required, but for me those are rare.

    To me concealed means concealed, not invisible.

    Good luck.

    In Texas there is not limit, that I am aware of, on the number of guns that can be carried concealed by a CHL holder.

    There is a restriction. If you tested with a revolver (.38 or larger) you can only carry a revolver(s). If you tested with a semi-automatic (9mm or larger) then you can carry any number and/or combination of semi-automatic(s) and revolver(s).

    I have carried a PT-111 (9mm) and a Model 85 (.38 SPL) at the same time.

    I've heard there are some changes to the testing allowing testing with a caliber smaller than 9mm/.38 but I'm not sure of that. But I also believe the rules changed a year or so ago allowing the carry of calibers smaller than 9mm/.38.

    This may be a little OT, but is in regards to the caliber requirement of NM as stated above.

    NM honors my NC permit which has no caliber requirements, I can qualify with a .22 LR revolver and carry a .45 ACP as my carry weapon. I qualified with a S&W .22LR revolver and I carry a 9mm and a .380 ACP. So I under stand that in NM I can only carry one, but what calibers must I carry? The LEO, or anyone for that matter, would not know what I qualified with unless I told them as NC doesn't record that information.

    Thanks.

    Funny, isn't it. You can carry a pair of .500 Smiths on your belt, two .45s in a shoulder holster, a Glock small of the back, a snubbie on both ankles and a Keltec or NAA in every pocket and be arrested for the swiss army knife with a 3.1 inch(or shorter depending on the city or county) blade on your keychain.

    Don't disparage ALL shoulder holsters. I agree that conventional shoulder holsters allow the gun to flop around, and don't really conceal well, except possibly under a very heavy and roomy jacket. But my homemade under-the-shirt holster conceals better than any alternative I've ever seen (at least, it does for my unusually small and light S&W360 scandium snubby...might not work so well for a larger, heavier gun, though).

    I really hope we change this law as it does not make sense. But then again, I think New Mexico just likes to be different for whatever reason. When we first got CC, Albuquerque, the largest city here, decided to opt out of CC. Then we went to court about the constitutionality about that, then we got CC again with a law that states no municipality can trump state law. But CC was only available to 25y/o or older so we didn't have reciprocity with any states since they issue at 21. We changed that, now we need to change this law, how are we MORE unsafe with 2 pistols compared to one? Good old New Mexico will keep ya guessing!

    Same with Michigan^^^^^^^^^

    I feel all the requirements and stipulations are sometimes well meaning but ridiculous, IMHO

    Here in Oklahoma you may qualify with Derringer, Revolver, or Semi Auto. Qualifying with a revolver allows you to carry the derringer, Qualifying with a Semi allows all three, however Caliber is restricted to .45 or under. No limits on how many guns you may carry however.

    I thought the limit was a 4" knife...

    + 1 on no gloves. Of course I didn't usually wear gloves in Michigan before I started carrying, unless I planned on being outside for extended periods of time. Even then pockets are more comfortable than gloves for me. (add a snub nose in a pocket holster and the feeling is down right comforting ).

    To the OP, being in Mississippi I would think you could get away with out the gloves. If you need to toughen up your hands come spend 4 months here in the great white north.

    I wasn't aware of this additude in Wayne County. Have there actually been any cases where a legal CPL holder was tried for carrying more than one gun? The statues have no limit in them and Michigan has preemptive status as far as I know so local laws cannot trump state law.

    West Virginia doesn't restrict how many, what caliber or to a specific handgun.

    We can carry as many as we need or want.

    No restrictions on how many can be carried here in Nevada, as long as they are listed on your carry permit.
