    Smile New from Upstate SC

    Hi...a newbie here from Upstate SC/Greenville area. Learning a lot from this forum. Recently took a CWP class and obtained my carry permit... it was a gift from the wife actually.

    I am carrying a S&W M&P 9compact (it is double-stack) and carry an extra 12 round magazine. Also my BUG is a Taurus TCP (it is single-stack) and a 2nd 6 round mag as well.
    Sometimes I will substitute a smaller Kahr CM9 for the S&W but It does give up some rounds.
    Sometimes also plan to carry the TCP and a NAA mini 5 shot .22mag if summertime clothing limit my choices. I also carry and really like the SCCY CPX gen 2. I purposely picked all my handguns because they have harder longer trigger pulls much more like a revolver than a short light glock because I feel it is safer.

    Not looking for trouble but if it comes my way I do not want it to be a fair fight if at all possible. My thinking is to have a chance against multiple threats who would no doubt be well armed. So I am planning to always have more than one firearm with me.
