Normally, I carry a Colt Combat Commander in .45 ACP. An 8 round magzine and one up the spout. Back up magazines should they be necessary are two 10 round Wilsons. Back up to all that is an S&W M60 .38 Spl. and two speed loaders. And yes, I know exactly what a New York reload is.

However, with all my medical problems and the fact it's against the law to carry in a hospital or other medical facility the .45 sometimes stays at home and only the M60 comes along for the ride. It's a lot easier to hide in my vehicles than the .45.

It all boils down to what Elmer Keith said. "I believe every man should scratch his own fleas in whatever manner he chooses."

If you set your mind on thinking of every scenario where you might need more than 5, or 6 or 9 or 18 rounds, well, the sky's the limit. Don't leave the house without a belt-fed weapon and an ammo carrier.

If you're carrying a gun, your mind had better be on, #1, how to avoid a fight, and, #2, how you're going to stop the fight you can't avoid with the number of rounds you've got onboard, be it 5 or 50.

My EDC is an SP101. I also carry a Galco 2x2x2 belt ammunition carrier.

It seems to do the pinch for me and the areas that I live and work.

I'm in the Chicago area so your situation may be more dangerous than mine.

Stay safe.
