    Default Holiday carry capacity

    Do you make any adjustments over the holidays on your daily carry or overall carry capacity?

    I'm sure they're diehards here that always carry extra magazines but I generally just run a 15+1 configuration. With it being the holiday season I have been getting in the habit of putting an extra 15 round magazine in my pocket when we go out shopping.

    Not me, I'm behind the curve on this. I just carry my loaded weapon, I think it's 13+1

    I don't, but I also don't go out very much during the holidays, especially shopping.

    My ruger 57 is 20+1 that's my every day carry, but if I need to go somewhere I'm unsure of, I put my saturday night special in the ankle holster which gives me another 5 rounds, then my cz scorpion on a sling under my jacket which gives me another 30 rounds. IIIa plate carrier is easily concealable under my jacket as well, you'd think I just put on 20lb. Now if I'm going into the city, there's the m35a1 with top mount m1919 in 30-06 which gives me 2 boxes of 200 rounds, for added security.

    My EDC gun is a WCV Glock 19 carried with a spare mag. For the next several weeks I am going to go with my 26 (again with a spare mag) since I have some outings/functions to attend and I figured that

    1. The 26 has a little smaller "foot-print" for concealment and
    2. I just want to get it out of the safe and give it some carry time.

    It's a Gen 3 26 that has a grip reduction and stippling job that really fits my hand to "perfection" (Yeah I used the P word...) Going to carry it in either my Kramer horsehide OWB belt scabbard or Crossbreed Supertuck.

    Funny thing, I carried my 19 all during the summer and now during the winter I am downsizing a bit, makes one wonder...

    That's funny, I still don't know how you conceal carry a Ruger 57. I have an FN Five Seven and assume the Ruger is about the same footprint. I bought a holster for it thinking it would be sweet for carry but it's far to big.
