    My carry weapons.

    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.

    Impossible. Having too much ordnance is like having too much money.

    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!

    If he's carrying 69 rounds, I'm certainly not going to pick on him.

    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.

    Runway behind you, gas left in the tanker truck, altitude above you and ammo left in the box.

    All things that you wish you had when you need them. If you can carry it, do.

    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.
