What are you carrying today? (EDC Pics.)

What the title says..... post some pics of what are you carrying today.

Not just guns, but whatever you have in your pockets/bag. Don't know why, but I've always been interested in what other folks carry around on a daily basis.


Every once in a while the gun will change, but this is what I have on me 99% of the time.

Keys with a flash drive and a small multi-tool. I use both of these on a daily basis.

Streamlight MicroStream. It's so small, there's really no excuse NOT to carry it. Also very bright for it's size/battery.

Burt's Beez Wax lip balm. Addicted to this stuff.

Benchmade Mini-Barrage. Small enough not to freak classmates/teachers out, large enough to have no problem with most tasks, fast enough to make CPJ wee himself a little, sharp enough (thanks to Knitepoet) to cut through adamantium. IMO a perfect all-round pocket knife.

Casio G'Zone Commando. It's a smart phone that I haven't been able to break yet. Nuff said.

Spare 17 round mag. To paraphrase Zee, when I get through doing whatever it is I did......I wanna have enough ammo left to do it again.

Glock 19 with an Inforce APL. I'm really digging this little light. It's about one millimeter wider than the slide of a Glock, is a no brainer for momentary activation, and weighs around three ounces. Really great light for carrying all day.

*Not pictured (because I forgot to take them off), Edge Fat-Head sunglasses and a Citizen Eco-Drive Military. I doubt I'll every buy another kind of watch.....I've been beating the hell out of this one for the last four years and it hasn't broke yet, when it does I'll replace it with another one (around a hundred bucks.) I'm really digging the no battery thing, I've got a box full of watches with dead batteries, that I just never replaced....no battery in the first place with the Eco-Drives, so no worries.

*Mods, if this gets enough interest, how about a sticky, for regular updates/changes.

    My daily kit has evolved somewhat.

    At a minimum, it includes a handgun with 1-2 reloads and 2 knives.

    Actually it is more like this, but that is alright because I have a couple of 44 magnums and 460 S&W's to compensate...

    From what I hear, that's being a bit optimistic.

    Did you know that a laptop inside such a bag is cut proof and pretty much bullet proof.....


    Hmmmm, I imagine it'd make a fairly decent flail, as well.

    A grudge against the stupid cow in the supermarket carpark when she opened her door and scratched the jeep..........Called her a limousin, she thought I was referring to a chauffer driven Cadillac.

    You will have to fine me for NO picture. I keep a M&P40 shield on my person some days. You try to guess which days.

    The cord with the power brick hard attached on the end will do some damage as a flail as well.

    Eli my brother.......has anyone come forward yet to let you know your Glock has an inverted acne issue? Seriously dude, it looks like a photo-negative of smallpox.....she may have a grip....but she ain't winning the state fair....jus sayin' bro. Glock may have to lean on Sig's market line on this.....(for the dense..."Perfection" and "Reliability")
    God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!

    Yup, I've been told a time or two.

    I've also been accused of having warped tastes. IMO the most beautiful gun I've ever held is Teach's snub-nosed Webley, I also think that the ugliest, most foul, amalgamation of wood, metal, and God-awfulness to ever come out of a factory, is the Colt Python. They shoot well, but good lord those are some ugly guns!

    Most folks tend to disagree with my assessment.

    Same with Glocks, I think they are gorgeous. Put a few miles on them, and they look even better.

    I'm finally in a place where I can take a pic of the pocket dump:



    Wallet, Streamlight 2AA, Streamlight AA, Kershaw Compound, iPhone, Swiss Army Knife, S&W 325PD .45ACP, 3 Moonclips, CZ-82 9mmMak, Reload for that.

    And yes, I did carry that all day. I recently lost a bit of weight and the only way to keep my drawers up is to carry a spare gun IWB

    That just irritates me to LOOK at, bullsi.

    I HATE carrying crap in my pockets. Seeing that picture makes me wanna take off my own pants and burn them.
  • bullsi1911bullsi1911 Moderator Posts: 11,303 Senior Member
    Most of it is clipped in place and in holsters. Not too much is rattling around loose.

    What about the speed loaders?

    Also, is that wallet an All-ett? If so, that's the same one I have...
  • EliEli Senior Member Posts: 3,074 Senior Member
    Looks good Bullsi.

    When I do carry a backup (recent trip to Montgomery for example), it's either my Shield or a J-Frame stuck in my back pocket. During the winter, if I KNOW I'm going to be outside all day, I'll throw a shoulder holster on, under my jacket. In Alabama though, it gets that cold about one or two days a year!

    I'm doing crossdraw IWB right now. Accessible to either hand, and since the shirt is already untucked... well, it's easy

    I have a carrier for 2 of them.

    And yes, that is the All-Ett wallet. Best wallet I've ever used.

    Kahr PM9 in a Mitch Rosen Clipper loaded with 115gr Gold Dots. Keep one black nickle cased Hornady Tap round on the top of the spare mag so I can tell if I lost a round in my pocket.

    Surefire Back-up light. CRKT M-16. Gerber EAB that I actually cut stuff with....

    Joe, I remember you telling me this years ago, and have actually implemented the concept into my system. My mags are loaded with 147gr. Hornady TAP, but the round in the chamber is a 147g. Federal Hydra-Shok. Even in the dark, when doing a press check, the nickle case of the Hydra-Shok is very easy to see.

    No, actually, the piss off comment was an inside thing, I HOPE he responds in kind.
