    S&W M&P .40c
    IWB Galco holster
    DeSantis dual mag holster (new xmas gift)
    Speer Gold Dot ammunition
    4 mag's (3 on me, 1 in car; total 40 rounds)

    I never leave home with out it, and 9 times out of 10 i usually put my firearm on before my shoes in the morning. When (optimistic) Texas goes OC I'm going to look at a new holster. Something in the Kydex style that will lock my firearm in place and hold an extra mag if possible

    S&W 620 w/ a chamber full of7 Wichester .357 Magnum125 gr jacketedsoft pointswhere legal. Everything else I carry varies on such things as whether I remember them, whether they are legal where I am going, and whether I need them where I am going, and whetherI feel like having them. I usually have a cell-phone though.

    I carry a variety of firearms, either my 3" S&W Model 65 or a semi-auto (Glock, Norinco, etc.)

    With the revolver, a couple of speed loaders with the Federal "FBI" load.

    With the M1911, a couple of extra magazines loaded with Hornady 200gr. TAP.

    With the Glock 19, an extra magazines loaded with Winchester White Box 147gr. JHPs.

    Just for grins today, I carried my Glock 22 with an extra magazine.

    I have a few times out of necessity but not very comfortable with it. I prefer the hip holster.

    Glock 23 almost always in a DeSantis Mini-Slide belt holster.

    My carry stable consists of four Glocks, four Kahrs, and a P3AT KelTec. My primary piece is the Glock 23. The others are there for those times where clothing, destination, or other criteria dictate their use.

    Thank you! I figured that if I was going to carry openly I wanted to do so in style.
