    About 1 hour ago. Took the trash out.

    No extra mag. Flashlight in right hip pocket.

    KelTec P-11 OWB @0400. 10+1

    ETA: Fortunately, we've go motion sensor lights on the house that activate when you get to the bottom step of the porch. The flashlight is a redundant backup.

    yes. the walkway to my house has no light source, so i have to use a flashlight to see where i'm walking. also, after having a close call while walking my dog, i decided to always carry one at night.

    sometimes i'll carry a spare mag, sometimes not. if i ever find myself in a situation where i need to fire all 8 rounds of .45ACP, it'll be my fault anway, for not being accurate enough. it was more common for me to carry a BUG as a reload, rather than spare mags.

    No & no, it was light out so no need for light, 9 out of 10 times I have no spare mag.

    No flashlight. I never carry one unless I'm going to do something that necessitates it.

    No spare mag. I find it's on and off with me, I'll try and carry a spare mag for a week, then don't for two weeks, then on again. I need to find something more comfortable than the stock XD gear mag holder.

    Any time I leave the house I have a flashlight cliped in the opening of my weak side front pants pocket. Darkness is never more than a half a day away, and a lot can happen in that time. As a creature that depends very heavily on vision, I see no reason not to always carry a small flashlight... Not to mention the fact that darkness can happen indoors any time of the day.

    As for the spare mag? I typically don't carry one unless I am going outside of the local area. It is mostly a lazyness/comfort issue for me. I think it would be better to always have a spare mag... But... Well... Being human, I don't always do what I think is best. When I do carry a spare mag, it is in a comp-tac mag holder, weak side, 9:00.

    Always: Flashlight and 2 guns.

    Flashlight either in hand(off hand)or around neck on lanyard. 1 gun strong side, 1 weak.......Unless something grabbed my attention then out I go w/ gun in main hand and light in off hand.
