I am kinda new to the forum, My name is BJ. Last year I carried a Glock 23 40-cal in a underarmor concealment shirt and IWB Scorpion holster and with two extra magazines.
Last month I purchased a new Glock 29 10mm.
I sometimes carry both depending on wear I am going. I am a computer field engineer so some of the places I go are not in the best places and sometimes late at night.
Full armed with 69-rounds usually two extra magazines for both guns.
I am pretty good sized 6 foot 3, 240lbs, so never had any issues as of yet.
Just wondered do you think it is overkill.
Welcome aboard BJ!
I always carry a spare magazine, if not for the rounds, for a malfunction. If you can carry that many rounds, who can fault you?
You're gonna get picked on though for calling magazines clips!
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

If he's carrying 69 rounds, I'm certainly not going to pick on him.
"I'm not fluent in the language of violence, but I know enough to get around in places where it's spoken."
I think 'overkill' is a surprisingly appropriate description.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

My feeling is you can never have enough firepower, 40-cal is great caliber but my 10mm is very impressive. I was shocked with the power this round has.
Good hardware is an great asset; just make sure to have the corresponding software (training); 1 well placed shot with a small caliber beats a hundred misses with a .44 mag.
I remeber that federal agent in Miami a few years ago: he shot 30 + rounds at the BG then the BG shot once and killed him.
I have only one carry gun; I have put through it many thousands of rounds in training and competition. Hard to beat.

Definitely carry what you can.
I have a nightmare of needing just one more round.....
If you have no issues carrying that load, good for you!

Yeah practice is the key, I have done lots of tatical shooting. I also practice shooting from the car, weak handed, and done some night time shooting. I am pretty accurate with both guns. The reason i choose the 10mm is that is has awesome stopping power and can really reach out there and still have the knock down power even far away. I have shot the 10mm at about 30 yards and its still fairly accurate.
