    How many guns can you carry

    Is there a law that states how many guns you can carry on you?

    I am not aware of any Indiana law restricting the number of guns one may carry. I'd frequently carry 2.

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

    Nope.

    When I'm openly carrying, I always have another concealed.

    How many tires does your car have? Five, four on the wheels and one in the trunk - in case one gets a flat.

    Good analogy for carrying 2 or more.

    I don't think I have enough room to carry 5. Let's see...LCR22 in ankle holster, Beretta tomcat in pocket, XD40 open carried on right side, XD40 subcompact IWB @5:00, GP100 crossdraw. That might work.

    The reason I carry two is so that I'll still have one when the cops decide to coonfinger the one I'm OCing.

    Good luck with that! I can assure you that if you are the recipient of a Terry stop for OCing, then you will be deprived of both of your firearms and not just the one they can see.

    Lol! I do the same but just a 4"Xd and the 3" XDm.

    Though I do it in case I'm fighting for my oc gun. They won't think I have another.

    Yea... Paranoia. Lol...

    Having a back-up is good. It's that old "one is none and two is one" thing. Having a back-up that takes the same ammo in the same delivery system is also a good idea, but therr's nothing that says I can't stoke my 625 from a magazine or pull rounds from a moon clip into a magazine.

    What's even better is having the same make/model at home in case something goes wrong and your carry piece(s) are placed out of commission for a while - be it at the gunsmith or the evidence locker. It's the difference between EDC and "a collection".

    stay safe.

    Everyday carry.

    OT: I already have a G22 but I like the idea of getting a G27 as a BUG. Glock 22 15+1 Glock 27 9+1 and 2 spare 15 round mags that can fit into the Glock 22 or 27.

    No, you can't.

    I, however, can assure you that when I was stopped for OCing, I was deprived of neither of my firearms. They did not even attempt to disarm me, only detained me for an hour and a half.

    Terry stop or vehicle stop, history has shown us otherwise.
