    I like the checkered grips on that Ruger. Where did you get them?

    Thinking about a flat top skip line set with a diamond around the screw. You may notice that my pants pocket has worn the checkering down a bit.

    My wifes are not checkerededed.

    As time has passed my "daily carry" has lightened considerably. After some reflection, it became rather apparent to me that End Times weren't likely to occur while I was shopping at Kroger 1/2 mile from my house, nor was a zombie attack, nor would the sun likely wink out, nor violent revolution descend upon mid-town Houston, nor vast hordes of commie pinko fascist troops storm in via quick-drop copters, nor a class 9 Torino meteor strike me.

    So I gradually quit carrying 5 loaded spare mags, 4 tactical knives, 3 flashlights, 2 handguns, and a fully tricked-out AR in a pear tree. Easier to carry groceries that way, too.

    And I don't keep 3 gallons of drinking water, a tent, sealed food rations for a month, plus a rack of survival gear in the trunk, either. Way I figure it, if, while driving on paved city streets and not during a hurricane, and my destination is Kroger, Walgreen, maybe a TexMex place a couple miles away or a nearby movie theater, and I'm suddenly teleported to a remote and primeval jungle, I'm a goner anyway.

    So I generally have (in addition to regular stuff like car keys and wallet): 1 un-smart cellphone in my pocket, and 1 .357 Mag snubbie in the car's center console. That's all, folks.

    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...

    By the way, reading the back-and-forth commentary between the postings made me laugh out loud, as usual. I love this forum! Thanks, guys.

    Well, lets see now, I just emptied my pockets on the desk and I had a $5 and a $10 and about a dollar 37 in change, my wallet,
    my pocket knife, and my cell phone, oh and yes my package of Wrench Mints (Don't ask). But no pistola, eeks I'm naked!!!

    All because I let my carry permit slide and haven't renewed it NOR my Passport yet!

    A lot of nice EDC gear. I will take a pic of mine when I get a chance (2 pocket knives, 1 of 3 different guns depending on the day and my mood, wallet, no watch as I find them irritating, iPhone, Chapstick, flashlight).

    I see a few members with some serious EDC gear... nice stuff! I also see they got mocked/teased a bit (all in good fun)... I'm willing to bet the mockers would have done that to their faces! Lol. What do they call that.. cyber-gonadz? Haha

    If you only knew! I've got a couple pics in the archives I could drag out if I wasn't so lazy. Ahh, but if you hang around here, you'll find out,

    Absolutely hilarious, this gave me a good laugh today. I've come to similar conclusions, but my .45 has a good spot in my truck.

    Sure. I just don't carry on my person much anymore. I simply don't get out that much into areas where there are potential problems. I mean, I'm headed to Kroger and park in the disabled zone up front, walk past the armed guard they have on duty, and go in and buy groceries. As I said earlier, not a lot of assault helicopters discharging battle-hardened troops in the Kroger lot at 2pm.

    Oh I agree completely Sam, as the old saying goes "A .45 in the car is better than a .22 in your pocket."

    Those Fat Max tapes are great for old eyes that can't read up high any more. Measuring ceilings really sucks from the ground and the big numbers really help.

    I am too lazy to take it all out and take photos. In my Bianchi fanny pack with secret holster: CS 45, 2 extra mags, all loaded with 165 gr Hydra Shok, lightweight cuffs, badge, Streamlight Protac HL flashlight 600 lumens with lithium batteries, gel pen. Trousers Left front pocket: coin purse, keys, mentholatum stick. Left rear pocket: Wallet. Right rear pocket: Handkerchief, comb. Right front pocket: CKRT Hissatsu assist open knife. Watch pocket: SUV key. Belt holster and cell phone, bluetooth in left ear. I also use a hardwood cane, suitable for self defense. I sure hope this satisfies everyone's curiosity. I must admit it is kinda fun to see what guys carry around, since we don't usually carry purses. Seems many of you guys carry a knife and flashlight in addition to your firearm and extra ammo, we must think alike.

    Yup, I use my flashlight just about everyday, same with my knife.

    I've honestly never really considered my knife to be a weapon......although I'm well aware that it can be used as such........I've always considered it to be a tool, and have carried one as such, everyday since I was about 7 years old.


    My high school actually combined MS and HS, so grades 7 through 12 all went to the same building. The county had an SRO program which stationed a deputy at the school. One of the new practices that was enacted was once a semester (while the students were dressed out for gym class) they would go through the locker-room lockers and the clothes/bags within to search for contraband.

    In the 9th grade, after being suspended 5 times for having a knife at school (also being a straight A student with no other infractions), the exact conversation I had with my principal was:

    Principal: "God****it Eli, when are we going to stop finding knives in your pockets?"

    Me: "When are you going to stop searching my pockets?"

    They did two more searches before I transferred to another school, but for some reason never seemed to "find" anything else belonging to me.

    Guess I'm showing my age butwe used to carry pocketknives to high school daily. Used to play mumblety peg on the school lawn between classes. If the teacher couldn't find her scissors, I'd lend her my knife. Her reaction was "thank you."

    My Spanish teacher was an OLD Irish lady (pretty funny to listen to her speaking Spanish with an Irish Brogue), who carried a switch-blade in the pocket of her sweater. Perhaps that funniest thing I ever saw was the looks on the other students faces when she popped to blade to cut an old poster off of the wall.

    I have three basic “kits”. One is tailored for winter carry and one for summer. One is a firearms restricted carry.

    This is the summer inventory…

    On belt:
    OK’s Key Safe, house/garage/tool keys with Cold Steel pepper spray
    HKS speed loader holder with two, five round HKS loaders filled with 210 grain Sierra Sportsmaster JHP 44 Special, 7 grains of WW 231 powder, brass and primer
    Bianchi high rider thumb break strong side holster
    Charter Arms Stainless Bulldog Pug with Pachmayer grips

    In pockets:
    Left side front holds Husky utility knife (can’t live without it!)
    Small measuring tape (can’t seem to live without that either)
    Folding money in clip given to me by Sweetheart (with some $$$ if I’m lucky!)

    Right side front
    Three quarters, two dimes, a nickel and four pennies (lightest weight for perfect change)
    Chrome plated standard Zippo lighter (ex-smoker but can’t give up easy access to fire)

    Left side rear
    Wallet containing ID and Concealed Carry Permit

    Access to right rear pocket would jeopardize concealment of strong side handgun

    I also wear a vest in public to conceal the holster rig. It holds my pocket sized Day Timer and black ball point pen, chewing gum and at least one paper towel for the wrap around safety glasses I wear outside of the house (clear, amber or dark grey depending on lighting conditions)
