I have taken a different approach to WICN. This is a loadout I carry most days when I take Ranger Moe on his daily walk through the woodlands, prairie and wetlands in Western Wisconsin. The wilder life includes bears, coyotes and snakes. There have been mountain lions caught on local trail cams.
The +1 and the first round in the mag are CCI .45 caliber shot shells followed by 7 rounds of Underwood Xtreme Penetrator. I am more likely to see snakes than anything else. Most are harmless but we do have rattlers around. The backup mag has eight rounds of 230g +p HST.
I bring an inexpensive woodsman’s multitool with me for emergencies. The watch is a Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch.
I switch back to my Browning Hi-Power when we come home.
