Do you carry on how you feel?
It has come to my attention that how a person feels dictates how and what is carried out the door for CCW.
I'm intrested in what and how folks out there carry when these moods arise.
(Ram Rod, you opened the door on this one)
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.

What I carry is generally dictated by what I am wearing more so then how I am feeling on any particular day. How I feel generally does not factor into the equation.

I don't feel much different from day to day, and when not at work, I have a Glock on my person...be it a '36' or a '26'.

Except for hunting, hiking, or other treks afield I never feel like carrying. It is just prudent to do so at all times.

I pretty much carry the same all the time except when I need deep concealment. Moods play no part so far... but at my age, I'm on the lookout for new developments!

When I just don't feel like carrying, it is my stainless Airweight Bodyguard. Usually, my Glock G36. If it feels a bit weird out, Glock G29 SF.

I choose CCW depending on the attire. I do not see how the way I feel could dictate how and what I carry.

+1 Depending on how I'm dressed will determine if I take the 5" 45 or the much smaller 9mm

I understand what you're saying. When everyone once in a while i carry my gp 100. I'm not exactly sure why some days i feel like i need to, but it just happens.

Another vote for attire dictating my carry. 2.25 sp101 DAO in summer. XDm 40 and occasionally a full size 1911 in winter.

IWB no matter whether I carry the Glock G22 or the SA 1911. They are both comfortable and assure a chance of survival if needed. Maybe I need them both at times, have not gone that far yet.

I believe that it doesnt matter how long you plan on being out,a threat can come up if you simply go out for eggnog and gas.I always have my TRP,2 spare mags,and at least 1 knife.In the woods i replace the 1911 and spare mags with a Smith .500 and a fanny pack full of ammo.

It can, with some people and "conditions."

I change what I carry depending on what I'm doing and where.
When I'm in the woods hiking and hunting then my S&W 66-1 357 comes out to play with extra speed loaders and S&W 442 as backup.
When I'm running to the store in a lower crime area I still carry two guns but primary might be a S&W 442 with Kel-tec P3AT as backup.
When we are going to the Mall of America (#1 terrorist target in MN and not during the weekend) I am loaded with M&P40 full size and M&P40 compact with extra mags and my P3AT. The wife carries her Bersa Thunder 380 with 2 extra mags.
If I'm sick and need to leave the house then one or two revolvers is the way to go because simple and reliable with little thought needed.
