    Its fun to do once in awhile but carring one can be a pain some times

    double or tribble your pain by adding more


    If you find that you have a need for more then one go for it

    A lot of LEOs carry a secondary weapon besides there duty weapon but they tend to go looking for trouble

    where as most Non CCW carriers do not.

    No, but my instructor told me that the last thing you want to do is look like you went out armed to the teeth looking for trouble. I don't know if that is true or not, but I can see a jury of liberals using that against you if you ever had to defend yourself and you were loaded like one of the Boondock Saints. The most I have done is one in my waistband and one on my ankle. Mostly I just carry one with one extra mag (if that).

    I'd focus on making sure the one carry weapon suits my needs. Or maybe, firearm, knife (which have lots of uses) and pepper spray.

    If I feel the need to bring two weapons, I made a poor choice on my first one, am causing trouble, or shoulda brought an AR-15 instead.

    I think the only limits on several guns is a practical one. In WI, there was no mention of it in the law at all.

    I only carry one firearem. I don't think you really need more than one. I think the guy in the video had a few to many firearms. If you need that many you must live in a really bad area.

    It was a joke on my part. It was a video talking about the dangers of baggy clothing. I doubt the kid could walk at all with all those firearms.

    I think that kid pulled a shotty and some pistols out of his prison pocket!!!!

    Imagine running with baggy pants was difficult. Now imagine doing it with a Mac 10, shotgun, couple pistols up your keyster, more in your waist band, while carrying your neighbors tv.

    I sometimes carry 2. One is for open carry. The other is concealed BUG in the event that somebody manages to get the jump on me. Let them think it was my only one until BANG. The bad guy robbed my at gunpoint, I feared for my life. LAWYER!!!

    CCW, is their [sic] a limit to number of firearms one can carry at a time?
    My half-practical, half-smarta$$ reply would be:

    Limiting factors are
    a) how many do you have
    b) how strong are you

    The law doesn't say anything.
    And, contrary to a claim made by someone claiming to be an instructor,
    the law doesn't limit you to one type of "weapon" at a time.

    I own 19... wanna buy some? Just kidding. (I do have 19... just kidding about selling you any).

    One is enough, if it's the right one and you know how to use it properly. It should be the one you practice with the most. The K.I.S.S. principal.

    I once asked a DNR warden if I could have two shotguns in my duck blind. He was puzzled at first, looked at his "book" in his truck, and said "I guess so... nothing here limits the number of guns, just the number of shots (3) each can hold".

    Before someone asks... explanation why I wanted two was simple. Where I was hunting at the time was on the bend of a river. The birds would come down the river and by the time they rounded the corner and I saw them coming, they were only 100yds out and coming fast. It never failed... if I had heavy goose loads in my gun, it was teal or woodies coming at me. If it was geese coming, I was loaded up with smaller shot for teal. No time to switch loads. So I had two guns, one loaded with BB shot for geese or big ducks, the other with smaller #5s for teal & woodies. Grab whichever was appropriate for the intended targets.

    Being just mechanical devices any gun can fail at any time for a vast variety of reasons, even including Stephen Colbert's Gun, "Sweetness", hence the "BACKUP GUN". The BUG is also useful for the "New York Reload"....

    Then you won't need to carry any extra magazines.

    I have yet to carry 2 at a time, but the law allows it. If you carry 3 semi-autos with 2 maxed-out magazines each, it may be legal, but if you are ever in a situation where you pulled one in self-defense, the prosecution will have an absolute field day about how you were armed to the f'ing teeth and went looking for trouble. And pray you didn't have reloaded rounds in those magazines since the prosecution could additionally claim "you loaded those to be super-hot with cop-killer bullets...extra dangerous for penetrating body armor!"

    Thanks for the replies. It was out of curiosity sake. I do not wish to list how many firearms I have in public, however, I like the idea of carrying different types of weapons. I have a few tazers, my main P13-45 CCW gun, and some other things.


    How about this, are we allowed to carry Chinese throwing stars? (Joke) They could be fun.

    I went to Cabellas today and was carrying two pistols. One was a sr9c because I was looking for a holster and my lc9.
    The sr9 was checked and flagged and then I was escorted to the gun counter and the pistol was given to a counterperson
    who gave me undivided care to select the holster. Once the holster was selected my pistol was cased and was stored at the customer service counter until I was checked out. I never said anything about the lc9 as I believe even that Cabellas
    claims to be carry friendly if no one needs to know why say anything.

    This.....^^^^^ And if seconds count, it might be faster to draw a BUG than to reload with a new Mag.

    It is only faster to draw a second gun then to reload.

    If your willing to drop your frist gun and the second is in a very easy draw location and your re[placement mag isn't easy to reach..

    That is the so-called "New York reload" that I mentioned previously.

    I recommend against carrying both lethal (gun) and non-lethal (taser) force. If you ever go right to your gun instead of using your taser first, the prosecution will have a field day on how you had lesser force available and chose to kill instead. They don't breathe down cops necks on this because cops are "trained" but they will grill you if this happens.

    Traning is not just relative to who you work for. If you can artiulate on why you went to your firearm instead of a less lethal method I see no problem.

    Remember we all carry non lethal methods with us all the time hands and feet. The prosecution could say why didn't you just disarm him.

    You are right LEOs recieve lots of training in the use of force. They are also taught to go from just mere presents the less amount of force( just being there) to deadly force and skipping all the kinds/amounts of force in between.

    It all comes down to what a reasonable person whould have done. For LEOs its what a resonable LEO would have done.

    The question well come was there any other resonable way to handle the situation with out the use of deadly force. If the answer to that question is yes no matter who you are, you could end up in a heap of trouble.(castle dotrine laws can give you a better chance of defending youself)

    If one needs training on when, what type, amount of force to use. There are instructors who have training and experience in these areas.

    I for one have many years of training/instructing in the proper use of weapons and force.
