Since I purchased a pocket pistol recently, I have found myself carrying two firearms most of the time. :guns: I still carry my main carry (PT145 IWB), but the little pocket gun is almost like carrying a pocket knife. I forget it's there. :drool: Its in my pocket from the time I dress in the morning, til bed time. At home the .45 is on or near me, but the little pocket gun is always with me. :thumb: Originally I planned on carrying the pocket gun during the hot months out of convenience, but it's quickly becoming an extra. :angel:

Anyone else find themselves doing the same? Or maybe carrying more? :evil:

well i dont really have a pocket gun to carry in the first place but i'd say no.

i dont even carry a reload most of the time, if the gun jams or something im done for, but i trust it to fire when i need it so im not worried..

been carrying my pt92 so if 18 rounds dont do it them im just SOL.

now if i was carrying a revolver or something i'd probably carry reloads, i can't really imagine running around with a whole extra gun.

well there wont be any argument from me cause i think carrying a back up is fine.. and i think carrying reloads is also fine, infact i think it's a good idea..

i dont because 1. im lazy, 2. the mag holder i got cuts into my side..

i bought a fobus double mag pouch.. i dont like the design and the sharp edges of the mag's base plate cut into me certain ways i move.

im planing on switching to a milpro when i find a good deal on one.. that'll bump me down to 12 rounds.. and thats when i might start getting squeamish wanting to carry a reload.

carrying a 2nd gun is ok for some, i dont have any pocket pistols to carry even if i wanted to (which i dont) im confident my 92 will go bang every time, infact i'll stake my life on it i can't make a bigger endorsement then that..

course carrying a backup would be good if you was disarmed or maybe ankle carry give you another option.. which aint a bad thing just beyond my desire to do.

the chances of needing your gun is slim, the chances of needing 2 guns is even slimmer.. but i suppose if it ever happens i'll be kicking my self for not carrying a backup.. but thats life, no guarantees and it's all a balancing act.

Hey Joe they have now started coming out with angled mag holder XD have them and I just seen on in a magazine with a flashlight holder. I agree the straight up and down ones cut into your side I think they got horizontel single mag holders to. :)

NOW! you tell me, i think i wore this foebus for all of 20 mins lol
it might not be so bad if i could get something to cover them up.. i was thinking a leather one with a strap might be more comfortable.

Sometimes I do carry my wife's PT 111 in my pocket while out for a walk while I have my PT-145 Mil Pro is in the waist band. I do this just for fun and don't carry both very often but in case we need both guns to fend off large dogs. I can hand her hers and then pull mine if needed. NOTE: She does not have her CCpermit yet, but watch out FIDO when she does :D :D

I sometimes carry a snubbie as a second gun. For me, its more about ease of access. My primary (XD9 SC) is on the belt but with the snubbie in a pocket it can be in my hand (still in the pocket) before anything starts. Knowing that you already have a gun in your hand as you attempt to get out of the situation is comforting.

Also if weather conditions dictate heavier outer clothing (winter, heavy rain etc) a gun in a coat pocket is much easier to access than the one on your belt under all that.

I'm like Steel in that when I can carry, if I ever feel the need for carrying a backup, I"ll probably put a 357 snub in an ankle holster and keep it in my boot. I'd only do that if I was going to the state fair or somewhere I could possibly need something like that.....frankly, if I can't get it done with my PT145 Mil Pro, I'd better pack it in.

I carry 2 all the time. Glock 22 and Glock 27 at work.
Off-duty I always have my S&W M&P 340CT in a pocket or on my ankle along with the semi-auto flavor of the day usually in a high ride belt holster or IWB.

Lately my favorite flavor has been my Glock 31 in .357 Sig :guns:

no, not unless i'm going out of town with family. I use revolver most of time and with reloads i feel pretty good about it. If out with wife then I'll carry a larger capacity auto.

I carry Two Guns 99% of the time. Lately I have been carrying a 357 Snub strong side and a Glock 26 cross draw so it is in reach of both hands. I carry reloads for each gun. I all so carry a Flashlight, Pepper Spray, Lockblade Knife, Cell Phone, and Wallet.

I've been thinking about picking up a snub to carry when the PT145 isn't practical, and I guess if I had both I'd be inclined to carry both. But for now, that's not in the budget.
