  • concealed carry

    hi everyone, I recently purchased a glock 26 as my off duty firearm. I was wonder what everyone else has/ does for concealed carry. I just picked up a desantis scorpion iwb holster and a blackhawk CQC carbon fiber single magazine pouch. one in the gun and one on the hip right. I was planning on only carrying one magazine (in the glock) but I hear that some people say you should always have an extra magazine with you? is that really necessary? Does everyone carry 24/7 or only sometimes?

    24-7 and at least one reload handy.

      Yes , I always carry. Is it really necessary to have extra mag? I think it can't hurt but better to have atleast a fully loaded weapon. I think it is important to do that more than to worry so much about having extra magazines. The least I ever carry is a J frame.

        i feel the same way i have a 12 round mag for my glock 26 i dont really think ill need more then that for self defense. I am getting into the practice of takeing it with me everytime i leave the house even though it may just be a quick trip to get milk and bread. it just seems so pointless sometimes to carry when its the middle of the day and im only two mins from home.

            how long have you guys been carrying. i hear that alot of people carry 24/7 for the first year then just give it up because of the hassle.

              I also carry my 27 everywhere I go (atleast everywhere that I'm allowed to carry it per department policy). My first holster was a IWB that was extremely uncomfortable and didn't conceal the weapon too well. The second was a OWB that was very comfortable, but didn't conceal the weapon very well.
              I just got a Fobus IWB. To look at it you're thinking "that can't hide crap and it's going to be extremely uncomfortable". However, it does a great job of concealment and it's about as comfortable as an IWB with a gun that wide can be. It's priced just right too, I got mine from Midway USA at $25 with shipping.

                  I carry my full size Glock 22 everywhere off duty, and with only the mag that's in it. I have a small "skirmish bag" in my car that has cuffs, 2 extra mags, CPR mask, small binocs, and latex gloves.

                    I carry an older Kahr MK-40 for off duty use. I use several holsters depending on what i'm wearing or doing. I use an Allessi ankle fitted ankle rig, a n Alessi open OWB carry, and a desantis IWB carry holseter. I like the IWB ,but, I dont like the holster as it is too loose a fit. A freind on the job bout a Milt Sparks Versa carry and loves it, says he almost can't feel it..

                      I carry a Glock 27 in a Galco IWB. I carry almost all the time outside the home.

                        SigSauer P239. It's functionally identical to my primary, a SigSauer P220. I carry almost always.

                          Right now mostly carrying a P226 in UM IWB, though I'll be upgrading that to a Galco Summer Comfort soon. Virtually never carry a spare mag.

                            I love the Galco Summer Comfort for my full-size 1911. I wear it on extraditions; stuck in airline seats, and even then it's comfortable.
