    I normally carry a Brown Alpha Carry in .45, but recent events have made me, at least temporarily, put capacity at the top of the priority list. The Sig 320 with 17 rd capacity has moved to the top of the rotation. Any changes for you?

    My current EDC, now that I'm home all the time and the town next to me is currently being torn up by riots.

    Makes me rethink all the Glocks I sold haha. It’s easier when you can shoot 17 or 19 rounds before reloading. Definitely thinking of a replacement.

    Glock 19 Gen 5 loaded with 124 grain +p Federal HST has been my go to since December. Nothing fancy but I never fear it wont work when needed.

    Forgot to mention I usually carry my DW ECO and up until a month or so ago I had my Ar pistol in the truck at all times. Sold and will pick my other one up on Wednesday.

    No change, but sometimes I'm careless and leave the house without a spare magazine and today I laid out 2 extra mags next to the EDC piece. That's 28 rounds of 124 grain 38 super

    Oh......
    if was headed to ANY major city, I would likely carry 2 spare mags rather than my usual one.

    Funny? story.
    Customer of mine years ago was quite happy with his
    single stack 45 1911,
    until he witnessed the Los Angeles riots
    Then he contemplated a hi-cap 45 1911.....

    Nothing really changes on my mountain. I might move the range and wind flags out another hundred yards, pull the tracers out of the belts at positions one and two...

    Well I survived Harlem with a six shot revolver and two speed loaders, so my Glock 19 with two extra magazines should do me just fine. I'm not going to be looking to engage, just get me and my wife to safety.
