Election Day Load Out

Just wondering if any one has chosen to up the. game today with all of the publicity and hysteria around current events?

Some options are.
Not me, I’m not worried.
More ammo/extra mag but your same basic EDC
Grab the bigger pistol
Grab a backup, when you usually dont.
Ballistic protection (vests, plates, etc)
Voted early and wouldn’t leave the house for any amount of $
Full kit from behind sand bags with all your bros…
Other???

Plus 1,000 rounds loaded in 4 different calibers. At least 6 mags of each. Does this count?

Staying put. I work 3rd shift in the city, still smaller than most cities but known for violence. So luckily I’ll have a pretty good understanding of what I’m heading towards. Honestly tho the only difference I see happening is carpooling which will add another firearm and an extra mag I don’t normally carry.

Today isnt the day you need to worry about. Its tonight and tomorrow after the results start coming in. Stay vigilant, stay safe.

Depends who you ask I think.

Nope… Nothing.

Polling place is a school. No firearms and with the intensity of the atmosphere, I do not want to be flagged and frisked at the polling place … though I would disarm and secure my firearm in the car, I would not want to risk it.

Not many show up to my little rural polling place anyway.

But, it will be a quick trip to vote, and return home to arm up. Have other errands to run.

Idk if it’s legal to carry a gun in my state at polls it’s not at a government facility but it’s leased by government. So pepper spray and some knives will do

Voted early. Rioting isn’t a thing in my area. If, and it’s a huge if, something did go down, the local PD would put it down quickly.
I know several alternate routes to my home, from work, including across “Farmer Fred’s” field if it came to that.

Voted early here in small town Kansas. Don’t expect a lot of riff raff around here, but keeping my eyes and ears open. Been home for a few days out of the semi truck. Might be interesting tomorrow. Hope not. Stay safe everyone :+1:

Be alert.

Reports coming in of Philadelphia illegally blocking Republican poll watchers.

Hope it does not degenerate into violence, but it is hard to tell what people may or may not do.

Note;

Too late, Biden supporter hits 80 year old female Trump supporter… and a retired cop drew his firearm and forced the attacker on the ground until police arrived.

Keep the powder dry.

It is good to be in rural areas with few voters.

Just got back, no line, no problem, and everything was smooth… about like normal…

But, being in a rural area… I would never intentionally move to any city or urban area.

No offense to those who live there.

Oh, I think I know Fred’s shortcut

Fight the good fight, my friends. I am home with the plague–went and visited my non-mask wearing kids in Wisconsin. So far just fevers, incredible fatigue, body aches and no sense of smell, but I haven’t had any difficulty breathing yet.

Feel better Aaron…

This part is directed at the thread in general…not you.

I think everyone needs to relax. All of this fearmongering is going to escalate a manageable situation into a mess. Also, showing up loaded out…and leaving a trail on a forum…is not the best look if something bad were to happen. The folks doing this are all making the USCCA lawyer’s jobs more difficult.

Just another day. No real concerns about violence where I live.

Expecting some of the local and state positions to switch.

Elections have consequences, but not going to worry about what I cannot control. Change happens.
