    "Anyway, I had a couple of questions I was hoping you fine folks would be able to help me out with. I've got the Supertuck holster but, what about an extra magazine? I have a 16+1 magazine from MecGar and a 15+1 round that I'm assuming came from the factory since it has no markings. Is the 16+1 all that's needed or should I look into a mag carrier? "

    -IMO one magazine should be fine. However, it is a great idea to have a second one on hand. If your firearm jams, remove the magazine. If your only magazine hits the dirt, or water, you may have a problem.

    This is why I CC a revolver.- They work.

    "My other question is, these carry restricted areas. What to do with my weapon when I've no other choice but to be in one? Can I just lock the pistol in the glove box? What about carrying in the post office? I haven't read anything about it being a carry restricted area but maybe I'm just looking in the wrong area."

    -Put your firearm in the glove box. What I do, if I plan on making the post office part of my travels is to put my firearm in the glove box. I have my vehicle paper work in another area of the dashboard. Of course when I am pulled over, i had over license and permit, and announce that I have a firearm.-

    "What is the school of thought on carrying reloads? I can get 500 count box of Remington Gold Sabers for $66.00 compared to $20.00 for a 20 round box of Speer Gold Dots. Using my reloads I'd be able to practice with what I carry. It just seems to make more sense to me but maybe I'm missing something. "

    -Reloads are second hand cartridges. You want to trust your life to a reload? Practice all you want with reloads if your firearm's warranty will allow them. CC only "personal protection rounds". The reason for that is simple. To stop the threat.

    Lets say you brew up some reloads. You are involved in an incident and you shoot the perp. You are hauled into court to answer the following. The opposing attorney will ask; "Why Mr Crow, did you brew up those evil handloads in your laboratory? Store bought ammo not powerful enough? You made a cartridge so powerful it took off my clients leg?" Jury's don't understand reloading. Stick with store bought personal protection ammo for concealed carry. Make sure it works in your firearm. Practice with something cheaper.-

    Alright this is what I wanted. I mean yeah I'd trust my reloads to defend myself (oh the time it takes me to turn out target rifle ammo! I can just imagine defensive rounds!) but legally it aint worth the effort or hassle. Your post was what I wanted to know on the government buildings too. Glove box and the mag(s) either go with me or get to sit in the trunk. Sounds like a plan to me, thanks again.
