    It basically comes down to the more the merrier although; you probably wouldnt be fast enough to conquer that many gang members, etc. etc. I may applaud the effort nevertheless.

    But hey whatever floats your boat.

    I carry the best gun I am able to conceal comfortably. My preference is a Commander-size 1911, IWB, or XD45 equipped with a Clip-Draw, but depending on the appropriate mode of dress, I may have a Kahr K9, IWB, or a j-frame .38 in a khaki pocket, or my very last resort, a Ruger LCP .380, in a front blue jeans pocket.

    I am equipped to carry with most of the available methods, and vary my carry mode according to my environment and expected threat level.

    Para LTC .45 or a Colt MK IV Officers ACP in the warmer months (rather IWB or OWB)

    I usually have a gov framed 1911 in a shoulder rig in the colder months. I sometimes will switch that out with one of a few though being I have a few shoulder rigs for different guns.

    why do these percentages add up to over 100%?

    must be some math programming error there somewhere

    Nope. This poll allows more than 1 choice, so the total percent will be over 100.

    S&W airweight .38. In the pocket in warmer weather, IWB when it's cold enough for a jacket. Fortunately, in FL, it's not cold enough that often, so the majority of the time it's in my pocket.

    I carry a HK uspc iwb, but it would be nice to have something small enough for pocket carry.

    I carry mostly IWB for all my guns, my primary guns are currently 9mm, but I also carry .380 and .45.

    Occasionally I'll pocket carry, but I just like IWB better.

    At home, when I'm out back shooting or walking through the woods, I carry open. I also usually have a rifle, most likely my SKS or Marlin 336 with me. People have been known to hunt on my property, so I want to make it clear that I'm not going to take crap from anyone right from the start.

    In public, I carry my .45 or 40 S&W in either my IWB holster or a belt holster.. I dress purposefully for both types and which I choose will be determined by my level of activity. My Kimber fits nicely in my IWB holster in the appendix position, and I know I'm pretty much good to go with that.. Only problem is grabbing the gun isn't as easy as my belt holster in the 2-3 O'clock position.

    fanny pack is the only way we in Illinois (handguns are bad here) can get way with it. you must have Firearms Owner's Identification Document, gun must be unloaded, in a seperate compartment than the ammo.

    Please, please, please tell me that's for transport to the range and you don't actually carry like that on a daily basis. If so, I'd love to know the reasoning.

    I moved to CO from IL, and if you think you wouldn't get in trouble for carrying like that, I hope for your sake that you never get caught.

    I don't carry here because of the screwed up law makers, the fanny pack thing is the only way you have a " legal fighting chance to carry " as told to me by local police chief. he thinks it is bs.

    you can put gun in your truck but it must be cased seperate from the ammo also. and both must be out of reach of the ocupants.

    I carry a S&W Sigma 9mm IWB in a Kholster. I have had the Kholster about 2 months and it is great, very comfortable. I do sometimes carry in a "nerd bag", a Tommy's Gun Pack. Nerdy or not it is a great way to carry, the draw is just as fast as IWB under a shirt. You also have the option of slipping you hand around your weapon without brandishing if something doesn't look quite right to you. The more I use the Gun Pack the more I like it and it may become my daily carry method when the dog days get here.

    Living in Mass. the weather changes from season to season so I vary what I carry according to dress, occassion, and threat level expected. Usually in the colder months I carry my 40 Glock or my SP-101 either in the waistband or on a strong-side holster. Warmer weather finds either of these in a IWB carry mode. Very hot summer weather may be a pocket pistol in a front pocket.

    What I carry and how

    Well, I just changed from a Kahr MK40 that had some issues to the Para PDA 9mm. I can place shots much better with the 9mm rather than a 40 S&W in a 3 inch barrel. The Kahr had a stout recoil, where I could hit the paper but never new where, lol. I wear a DM Bullard IWP leather on the right/strong side and a 2 mag IWP mag pouch on the left/weak side.
