    Going onto the military base is such a common occurance in this area that a local gunshop will hold your handgun while you are on the base and you can pick it up when you exit the base.

    Feelings

    As every one esle has already mentioned feelings take no part on the decision of what to carry. Basically the largest and most comfortable gun I can carry. I prefer the Ruger LCR .357 the most. It has the best power to weigh and size ratio, plus 100% reliability. At 1400 fps it is a canon and hard to beat. I also have a Kimber .45 1911 and a Springfield XD 3" in .40. In the summer, 99.99% of the time I wear cargo shorts and T-Shirts, so it is easy to conceal anything during the summer here in FL. Cold weather is also no problem. I use a IWB holster almost at 3 O'Clock.

    Sometimes I feel like taking my M-1 Carbine with a 30 round magazine stuffed in it, plus and extra 30 round mag just for fun.

    However all kidding aside, sometimes I feel like carrying my S&W 9mm and extra 8 rd mag or the Rossi .38spl and a speed loader. Right now those are the only two carry handguns that I own and I kind of alternate on which one I carry depending on how I feel that day.

    Well, I carry two and sometimes three guns so the determining factor on which ones is usually based on what I'm wearing. Also the third gun is usually a Ruger LCP so it's so small and lightweight, it essentially like it's not even there. I don't think my mood has ever been a deciding factor, although what location I'm going to be often is.

    I travel a lot for work related issues which often takes me not only to large cities I'm not familiar with, but also in area's of the cities where I know in advance has a higher crime rate. In which case I may opt for one of my SP-101's in .357 mag as a third gun instead of the .380 LCP.

    My P229 has not left my side except at work (military), and when I'm flying commercial (have to put it in checked bags) since the day I turned 21. Oh, and of course on deployments, I couldn't have the P229 by my side, but then I had an M4 and an M9 with me 24/7

    I would say mood can effect what I carry, but I would say how I'm feeling pain/sick wise would be a larger effect. Generally I'm fairly healthy but I do have back problems from time to time, and that effects my carry mode. If my back is hurting I might be all the way down to a P3AT in my pocket and light and backup mag offside pocket. Granted when my back is hurting I don't usually go out of my way to leave the house, so it's mostly just carrying around the house with that config. I will say if I'm feeling pain or sick and it's not my back I generally load out a little heavier than normal, no good reason just reflects my mood a little bit. I still avoid trouble and respond to things the same way but when I don't feel well I'm not in the mood to deal with a fight but if that's the day it does occur I'm not going to be short guns and ammo. I also figure out what I'm going to be doing that day and what I'm going to wear. The other day the wife and I went hiking, and I decided to carry the Taurus with snakeshot, the 1911 with normal hollow points and because it's so light the PF9 was still in the pocket. So it depends on the task at hand, when I'm doing firewood I tend to carry my 1911 just because I prefer it's accuracy and shootability out of my other carry guns.

    Either way there is always a gun on me if it's legal, and usually I have a hard time pairing down to just a single gun so there's usually a BUG somewhere as well. I will say though if you feel only the need to carry a single gun, more power to ya. We all make our own assessment of what we feel is necessary and willing to deal with;)

    Take care!

    Since I became disabled my carrying habits have changed drastically. I carry based on weight of the gun and my pain level each day. Lately I've only been able to carry my LCP or 642.

    Thanks for posting the question, its very interesting.
    I find that I do carry on how I feel.
    I carry a 9mm most of the time and switch back and forth between 9MMs to match my mood
    Glock 26
    Springfield EMP9
    KelTec PF9
    S&W CS9 (on me now)
    And if I can,t carry them I will carry a Ruger LCP (.380/9mm short)but I don,t like to step down to it and will
    switch back to a true 9mm as soon as I can.

    I carry the same gun, the same holster day after day. Dress up, dress down. Summer dress, winter dress. All moods included...it's the same gun and holster.

    Dress and destination determine what I carry. I choose between 4 guns to find the one I carry at a given time.

    When I'm feeeling real loose and free, I usually have my Kel Tec PF9 on my waist at 3 o'clock cause its light. But when I'm feeling a somber wind, the Glock 26 with a G19 mag in it is always by my side.
    I flip a coin sometimes, heads = 1911 and tails = Glock 23. Both work fine, both are accurate and reliable and I shoot both pretty well (although the 1911 trigger is just a step above).
