    Do you carry 2 guns?

    What I mean is do you carry a small pocket type pistol, and keep another full size pistol in your vehicle, or on you?

    When I leave home, the "what if" is/are always a concern.

    When I was not on duty, I carrying my Glock 17 in a duty holster, and that was enough.

    When not on duty, like today, I carry a pocket Sig P238 380 and in my pickup, is a full size 9mm or 45 with an additional 45-55 rounds already in magazines.

    Today I have retired, and we moved to a country home, to get a way from urban life. As such when we go to town to shop it's 20-30 miles away from home, and the "what if" comes into play.

    Since I've retired, we also like to travel a good bit via RV, and when we do I always not only take along a full size handgun I also bring a hunting rifle.

    Example: Today, we are headed to town, and I am carrying the Sig P238 380 in my pocket holster, my Browning Hi Power 9mm in the car in my "get me home" backpack ready to go.

    Not often but sometimes.

    Yesterday walking the dog I had a 44 SPL in a shoulder rig and my 38 SPL in my pocket.

    My daily carry. Quite often I have to visit high crime area's, & it generally involves me having to carry large amounts of money.

    Yep, most of the time I have an LCP in my pocket (Except work, Felony to carry there unless authorized.) and usually another firearm either no me or close to hand.

    The second gun depends on what I am doing. Around the farm is much different than going to town.
    Town is concealed G19. Farm has been a G17 for most of the summer as well as a long gun near to hand sometimes.

    I'm not the most trusting and there have been quite a few incidents in the area with transients as well as gas thefts and a couple of stolen vehicles.
    Have my Daughter, Mom, and Sister In-law in the habit of locking the doors when my Brother and I are not home. With two houses and a number of out buildings, it isn't possible to see everything from one point.

    Nope. It is either a Kahr P380 pocket carried or Sig P365 IWB. When I travel it is always the Sig. When at home I pocket carry and have a ready service full size 9mm handy.

    Two? The real question for me is, "When do you carry enough guns and ammo to open your own local gun store?"

    I carry a Glock IWB and a 2nd option™ pocket gun in my weak hand front pocket.
    Option to put my hand on it without revealing I'm carrying.
    Option to quickly access pistol with weak hand if dominant hand unavailable.

    I made it in before anybody said "war zone".
