    Spring, Summer and Fall, I generally carry a SIG P365 with the 10 round Flush Mag in the gun. I carry two 12 round mags as back ups, so 10+1 + (2 x12) = 35 rounds. I'd love to buy a couple of the 15 round mags SIG now makes, but they are proud of those puppies.

    In the winter or heavy coat weather, I carry either my Beretta M9 or Walther PPQ in .40 S&W. I keep the 15 round in the M9 and two 17 round mags, so that would be 15+1+ (2×17) = 50 rounds. The PPQ I keep with the 11 round in the gun and two 13 round mags so 11+1+(2×13)= 38 rounds.

    In 9mm, I carry Hornady Critical Duty 135gr +Ps. In my .40 S&W, I use the Critical Duty 165gr + P. Both loads function well in their respective guns. In the P365, the Hornady holds a tighter group than SIG's Proprietary ammo for that gun.

    Now, if I'm at home,.I'll throw on my carrier and grab my AR in .300 AAC. One 30 round in the gun, and six 30 round mags on my carrier. Two mags of 220 gr S&B Subsonic, the remaining five mags loaded with Hornady 125 gr HE'S.

    To prevent confusion since I also own ARs in 5.56, I use P-Mags for 5.56, and HexMags for .300 AAC. This way I can feel the difference between the two magazines due to the pattern on the Hexmag. This way even in Low Light, I can feel the difference between the two types of magazines.

    Only one? Hmm,, I'm torn between a general purpose built knife or a Multi-Tool. If we're just talking knives, because the knife blade on most multi tools is a convenience more than anything else, I'd go with a Fixed Blade with a full tang. The Gerber LMF 2 I keep in my BOB has been a decent knife. Good 420HC Steel, it takes and keeps an edge. Only a 5″ blade, so it's not a monster, but a good general use length. Comes with a sheath that can be worn on a belt or around your lower leg. I suppose you could mount it on a shoulder strap for quick access. Around $100 – $120 to buy, it's not a terribly high priced knife compared to some other manufacturers.

    Being retired on a fixed pension, Benchmade are a pipe dream for this old fart.

    Never given it much thought, but I don't use gun magnets in general for staging my guns. I do have a few knives placed about, but they're secondary to my pistols.

    Just never really thought about using magnets other than as a catch on the shelf I built to hold an AR pistol I built.

    The main thing that Warrior Life has done for me personally, is that it has changed my Situational Awareness. Before I'd holster my CC Weapon and blithely go about my day, and now a lot more thought goes into my daily activities, whether out and about or at home.

    My head's on a swivel now, and I pay a lot more attention to what's going on around me.
