    Yes, some gun-free zones are misdemeanor, while others carry a felony charge. Schools, houses of worship, government buildings, and some others.

    Ahh, gun free zones. Makes sense now. BTW, I can carry at the local police station. Of course, they know me there.

    I like to learn from watching what others do poorly. Where to hide out. When to run and when to fight. How not to get shot by presenting a firearm to a first responder. Etc. I always look for that stuff.

    No change here . Shield 9 is always on me whether Iím at home mowing the grass or in town at the mall. My m&p 2.0 4in doesnít get too much carry time. I just change my holsters to what Iím doing or what Iím wearing.

    No, it doesnít make me want to change my EDC - I already carry as much gun as I possibly can.

    But it does make me think long and hard about what I would do in such a situation, and whether Iím comfortable with the level of training I currently have. I have to say, that aspect makes me pretty uneasy, honestly. Makes me feel very inadequate in terms of real, practical preparation when the rubber meets the road. I guess that has been my biggest takeaway from the shootings.

    Yes, I do change, to a point. When these things happen, you run an increased risk of copy cats, as we unfortunately saw this weekend.

    Went to church today, where I usually dress up a bit, meaning tucked-in shirts with nicer shorts. Usually carry what I carry at my non permissive work environment...my dual pocketed LCPs. Today, I put on my G30, and wore a sport coat to cover it. Plus my usual LCP in the opposite pocket, but instead of just one spare mag for it, I added two more on my ankle for a total of three spares. I wore dockers to cover the ankle mag holster.

    It worked fine, but I was HOT by the time church was over. Wearing a sport coat and long pants in the heat here is no fun, and not something I will do on a regular basis. But, today wasn't a regular day.

    Stopped at a coffee shop after church, and as the family went in to get some refreshments, I got out of the car and took off my sport coat in the parking lot. At that point, I was open carrying, which is legal here. Was glad to be rid of the sport coat!

    Oh, and our church is not posted, so carrying there is legal. I just prefer to be discreet about it.

    Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.

    I carry what I can do to dress. Some days Sig 938 and the next time could be a Colt 1911.

    Two or three extra mags with my 45 Shield, depending on what else I'm carrying.

    I have lived that...But you guys got us now that's for sure...Things have way of going cycles.
    All great coaches have to leave sometime...Finding the next right guy is tough.

    I will admit to making sure the mags are topped up, or throwing an extra one on the belt, but no change in the weapons.

    Yes and no. As was mentioned, I consider that there is a real risk of copycats in the week or so after these things. I considered carrying the Defender at church under a sport jacket, but decided that where my church is located is about as low-risk as there is. However, when we went to Sam's later, I had the 19X with a spare 19 rd, plus the P365 as a BUG, with a spare mag for it as well.

    They have, however, made me decide to log more range time, and with greater than SD ranges.

    The two most recent ones have also served to make me consider carrying a 4" Python until I can get my distance accuracy better with the 19x/Defender. I have NO problem with it, other than capacity, and speedloaders not being very concealable.
