    I was wondering what features were most common among High Roaders for their carry guns.
    Mine is a Stock P99.

    Off-the-shelf Kel-Tec PF9 with Hydra-shoks, full mag, one in the pipe.

    Just bought a P220 though. Might step up. BIG step though. Hmph.

    Lately, my most carried guns have had few things in common -- a polymer frame & Hyddra shok ammo :cool:

    Several easy choices there for a revolver. Not too many of us dinosaurs around any more I suspect.

    You forgot to add flash light

    My carry rig also include a flashlight. I have a Surefire SX200 on the Glock 23 and I carry a surefire in my Blade-Tech magazine/flashlight pouch. You have to identify any threat prior to engaging it.

    Stock Sig 229 DAK .40 S&W. Always one spare magazine, often two.
    If carrying a BUG usually a J-frame with a speed strip reload.

    I answered according to my Sig P226 as I just started carrying it most often. Before that, Kahr K9. In either case, +P ammo, round chambered, spare mag.
