DID YOU KNOW?
It's felony engaging in a riot- "to engage in a riot while employing a deadly weapon" See C.R.S. § 18-9-104(1) ... See MoreSee Less
Do you carry a spare magazine?
Jacob Paulsen President - ConcealedCarry.com recently answered that question.
The question asked? "Do you carry extra mags on your person?"
And honestly I myself used to think differently about this topic until my friend John Correia shared some statistics with me that changed my mind.
As an industry, it is considered a GOOD THING to carry a spare mag or a backup gun even and to be clear I don't have an issue with anyone who wants to carry a spare mag or gun.
I don't think it is a "BAD THING" I just think its often a sign of poor priorities or a lack of understanding the reality of the danger that surrounds us.
What do I mean? I mean that you are MUCH more likely to need a tourniquet or a less-lethal option in your daily life than you are to ever need a spare magazine or backup gun.
Could a spare mag come in handy? Yes. But if you carry a spare mag and not a tourniquet I think you have your priorities out of wack.
And generally, the amount of space needed for a spare mag would also accommodate a Gen 7 CAT Tourniquet.
Here is another one. More important than a spare mag... less-lethal tools like pepper spray. Yep, I said it. You are far more likely to need pepper spray than a spare magazine. It isn't even close.
So one day if we are hanging out together and you tell me that you carry a spare magazine I promise I don't have any issue with that but my follow up question is going to be, "Do you carry a tourniquet or pepper spray?"
If you tell me no, you are going to get my above lecture.
Sometimes as concealed carriers we get so focused on the gun that we forget there are serious and dangerous problems in life that a gun can't or shouldn't solve.
So when you look at your loadout and EDC ask yourself if you have your priorities straight.
If you need a good tourniquet I recommend the CAT or if you need something a little more compatible with a pants pocket try the SWAT-T. (And frankly, I recommend having a full trauma kit within arms reach at all times like in your car, desk, bag, etc.)
If you need to look at pepper spray options, we don't really sell that kind of product at ConcealedCarry.com
