    yesterday I picked up my new P11 I ordered for xmas, we had to do some other errands and I didn't wanna leave it in my truck for obvious
    reasons.

    I was already carrying my P11 w/ 12+1 and an 11rnd and I also had a loaded 16rnd mag in my center console so "hey
    why not?" Murphy says if I've got 2 pistols on me and 1 is empty, I'll likely need both.

    so I stuck it in my jacket pocket. we went into a few small stores but
    it was when I walking around wally world w/ 2 guns and 40rnds on my
    person that I realized I was basically prepared for a lengthy engagement...which i didn't intend to do.

    And I know it would have looked really bad if I got patted down by a LEO
    'suspicion' of anything regardless of my CHL.

    Either way I remember thinking "I'd feel really bad for anyone who would
    even attempt anything"

    While it's easy to conceal a second P11 in my jacket, I don't really see a need for it. I have decided, however, to keep an extra 11rnd in my inside jacket pocket, I've got the room, might as well put it to use.

    say a quote on someones signature awhile back... a quote from clint smith

    "if you carry a gun pople will call you paraniod... thats ridiculous, if i'm carrying a gun what do I have to be paraniod about?"

    im going to pick up a new Walther PPS for my girl friend and they look so nice when the .40 s&w version is available i may have to snag one to put in an ankle holster and maybe even carry as a main gun while dressing light in the summer
     
  5. I just want to know why you have gills.

    Ive got 3, thats the only way I get to have my own 'personal' P11 as the others have been claimed...You know the story :?
     
  7. I wouldn't carry an unloaded pistol either unless I taking it be serviced, etc.

    You just had the thing because you didn't want to leave it in your truck, right?

    I don't carry more than one CCW just to go shopping and stuff, but that's just me. Many others carry a BUG.
     
  8. In New Mexico, it's illegal to carry more than 1 pistol concealed.... :roll:

    LMAO! that's the funniest thing ive heard in a long time!
    When i took my CHL class the instructor asked "how many pistols can you carry after you get your CHL"

    I'm not one to shout out the answer first thing so I let a few people answer thinking they'd get it right eventually

    -1
    -No
    -2
    -No
    -5
    -No
    ...100
    -No

    after the instructor started to look frustrated, I responded "as many as you can conceal"

    YES!

    Thanks for the laugh Primal, as if i wasnt already decided, looks like I'll spend my time in Texas! :wink:

    you're correct, Loopster, my truck has been broken into 3 times and pretty much has a nice "here's where you stick the screwdriver" hole on each door handle so even an inexperienced thief could figure it out. I didnt want to chance leaving a firearm in my truck.

    Im thinking the only time I'd carry 2 CCWs is on a long trip, or hurricane evac (in which case im taking 14 ccws :twisted: )

    One or four guns it does not matter, you have a valid CCW and if local restrictions don't prohibit the carry of more then one gun then,

    i regularly carry multiple handguns when i make bank deposits for my job. usually my G20 in a left hip holster, a beretta 21A in an ankle rig. i also usually have at least two blades on my person.

    SW
     
  12. If I had the funds to buy multiple handguns, I'd probably carry two as well. A G23 IWB, and a G27 in the pocket.

    Some parts of town make me think that even with a G22 in a shoulder rig, a G23 IWB on each hip, a G27 in each pocket, more G27s on each ankle, and a squadron of F-18's standing by I'd still be underarmed, but oh well c'est la vie :).

    Naw just get a good revolver and lever action rifle and 200 rounds of ammo. Old West time :lol: :lol:
     
  15. They say that Americans are the most overweight people in the world. Now, there's an advantage to being overweight; you can conceal more firearms. A skinny average guy like me doesn't have a chance against pork-rind chowing Bubba in overalls and a straw hat.

    Nothing against pork-rinds or straw hats...I'm a bit of a redneck myself...
     
  16. Reminds me of my best friend's ex... you could fit an RPG or recoilless rifle SOB on her lol.

    I have carried my 1911 and my SW mod 39 at the same time for a similar reason. I had just picked up the 1911 and had some errands to do and I felt like I was betraying it to leave it in the truck lol. So I slapped in the mag, but her in the holster and away we went. I had my primary pistol the sw 39 and an extra mag as well as my 1911 with an extra mag. I felt very well armed needles to say.
