Voted no, but...

I always carry a backup knife, a little 3" folder. Yes, I know, "Never bring a knife knife to a gunfight", but I think it would get me in less trouble with the law, and besides, it sometimes comes in handy for opening packages or going to a steakhouse where they usually have the dullest steak knives known to man.

I always carry a BUG when on duty, it is a custom S&W scandium jframe in 9mm. I also have a Kel-tec SUB-2000 in my gear bag that uses the same mags as my duty weapon. Off duty I generally only carry one gun with at least one reload.

A NAA mini-revolver is "always" in my right front pants pocket. At home it may be the only firearm actually on me, but there are others close at hand. When going out, there may also be a KT .32 or .380 in my left jacket pocket, in addition to whatever I am wearing in a belt holster.
