Yes. I now carry a backup handgun with me, off-body.
And a rifle goes everywhere my vehicle goes. I drive a lot for work.

Nope, I still carry either a P226ST 9mm or a Springfield XDM (full-size) 9mm. I bring it least one extra magazine regardless which I'm carrying.

More changes in behavior and my other EDC kit, no real change in CCW. I've started wearing my NAR Ankle Trauma Kit every time I go out, carrying a small GoalZero battery to charge my phone, and keeping both an IFAK and a reasonably stocked medical kit in my truck. I've been lax on carrying medical gear but recent events have made me realize that I may not be able to depend on outside aid when needed and I should be prepared to help myself or others. Other little things like not keeping a high and tight, keeping extra water/food in the truck, wearing more dad/boomer looking clothing without visible logos/designs, removing any and all decals/stickers/etc. from my truck, and making sure nothing with my name or tempting looking is laying out. Gray man as possible.

I started packing my HK SP5 and a G19 in a back pack and keeping it close, especially when traveling with the family.

I've almost always carried a mid-size pistol of some sort and a second mag. 30ish rounds of 9mm. Don't see any reason to increase that. If trouble makes it up to here that may change but this area has been pretty well immune to all the BS.

Full size 1911 switched out for the P226 9mm for more capacity. One spare mag and five more in the vehicle. Any light trip to adjacent burgs an AR-15 goes in the trunk with seven 30 rounders minimum. If anywhere near known rough patches the total mag count approaches 20 with tac vest.

Thought about carrying a plastic bag or a skateboard but I heard those don't work. Wink

That is my similar set up when I travel except I sometimes carry a G45 instead of the G19. I just added a Kel Tec Sub 2000 (G19 magazine model with) in a sling bag for my "always take with me when I leave the house now" carry.

Carry more reloads in my bag. When I can find one I like/it is available, I will start carrying a PDW in my bag.

Not entirely opposed to carrying a suppressed 22. (I have no desire to go "fight" a riot, and part of me thinks a suppressed 22 may be more useful in running away from one than a real caliber.)

Only in that now I'm more religious about carrying a spare mag for my Shield 9mm. If I had to go places where Antifa and the like hang out, I'd probably switch to my Poly80 G-19 clone with 2 backup mags.

Just made sure to carry an extra mag with whatever carry of the day was, but may switch to the P229 in .357 SIG mode.

My current EDC is Glock 19X with two extra 17+2 mags.

I've also added electronic ear muffs and safety glasses in the cab of my truck along with my Sig 400 Pistol with 2 spare mags.

In my EDC backpack I added a Hardwire Level IIIA backpack insert plus additional IFAK items.

No changes. Still carrying a full size service pistol with 2 spare mags. Usually my HK USP45 or lately my Glock 45. Spare mags in each vehicles.

The only change for me is I have been carrying much less during the summer. This year I just can't stand anything extra on my person in the heat.

Not a big difference. Have my 365, added an extra mag. If I need to go downstate I throw my 229 in the ruck as well.

Nope.

Where I live now is 90% Mexican and the Mexicans don't seem like the type to put up with rioting and black lies matter and antifa.
