    I carry two bandoleers of .223, and six mags for whatever sidearm I have. I keep four spare mags for the AR in my BDU pockets. I also pull a radio flyer wagon behind me with a first aid kit, spare parts, a couple of cases of ammo and some Mt. Dew. My wagon has a spotlight I took off of a old police car. I carry my Glock entrenching tool in the small of my back, and my Glock bayonet stays fixed to my pistol. I almost always wear a Glock t-shirt, its great for picking up chicks. Does Glock make shoes? I also keep two cyanide pills in my front breast coat pocket, just in case. I always carry a sat phone, cause the mall gets crappy cell reception. My wife carries the money and car keys.
    I don't carry a spare mag for my back up pistol, it chafes my leg.

    Gunkid... err SIXTO, have you considered mounting a .50 to the front of the wagon? A .30 may be more practical, but I know you will agree that you can never have too much firepower.

    I think I almost lost my Cheerios when you said "Glock Entrenching tool" hahaa

    Yes; at least one reload of .40 S&W (Gold Dot 165 grain JHP) behind the left hip in a clip-on Galco carrier. Two reloads if I am executing any warrants in a double magazine holder, also behind the left hip.

    At least it isn't the "assault wheelbarrow."

    Gunkid's in prison on weapons and other charges... should we still make fun of him, given that he can't see it?

    When I am away from work I usually just carry the 13 round in the Glock Model 23. At work it is another story and two spare Model 22 15 rounders in the shoulder holster or one in a belt carrier or the fanny pack.

    frankmako...nice bike. I have a plain jane FLHT. Good Bike! As far as spare ammo...how long will your engagement last? Can you brake off after three or are you in the mix until it's over?

    I answered before, but have changed primary carry weapon to G17 from the g26 now that cooler weather is here:

    Spare g17 with +2 extension on it [ 19 rds ] in the left rear back pocket now.

    I always carry a spare mag. As with the firearm, it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    One of the greatest responses of all time!

    As for me, I don't carry anything other than gun, keys, blackberry, wallet. If I am switching clips in a gunfight, I am probably in the wrong end of town.

    Was bothered by this myself.
    Another mag is always a good idea, but not convienent to carry.
    Does no good in car.
    Bought a Mernickle paddle holster with a mag carrier attached to the front edge. Put the gun on and have a spare in the same space.

    For colder weather carry, I have a Fobus Roto holser for my Springifled .45 on my 3:00, and a fobus magazine carrier at my 9:00, which holds two spare mags. If i have my snub nose .357 in my Carhart pocket, I keep a speed loader in the other hand coat pocket. I try to keep things on different sides so that my firing hand never has to let go of the gun to grab the spare mag/loader

    A mag (or speedloader) for all carry guns. Except for the BUG. When I used to carry the Steyr and had only one mag, the BUG was my "New York reload".
