Default Imminent Threat, What to Carry?

Hey guys quick advice. Long story short, I started dating a girl who's ex is a crazy gangmember who has been to prison for attempted murder. I stopped seeing the girl just to avoid the whole situation and never responded to him in any way. I filed a report with police about his threats. He even sent me stuff on Facebook and text (got the number from the girls phone). So here's my question. Having a high likelihood of armed and multiple attackers coming for me, what is my best load-out option til this blows over? I have the following Glocks for consideration. G27,G23,G30,G19,G21.

I plan on carrying 2 at all times, but should I go for capacity (which is what I'm leaning towards cuz of multiple bad guys) or stopping power? Or just go 27/23 for synergy in caliber?

Crappy situation either way, advice welcome...

First of all sorry to hear of your situation, second, a piece of paper (restraining order) will do nothing!
As far as multiple targets remember, one pop each center mass.
9mm, 40, 45 ( my pick) they all work.
be safe......

Sorry to hear about your current situation. I personally would choose either the .40 or my favorite the .45 ACP. I keep my Mossberg 500 always loaded at my house, because nothing say get out of my house like a 12 gauge, and a 1911.

This. Frankly, I wouldn't leave the house without the 12g either.

Probably too much information for an open forum...

I think your best option is to avoid being alone whenever you can for a while. Safety in numbers.

Grow up, Jack. The thread never went that direction. Stay on topic or take a walk.
