    5. I kinda figured you for a space pen.
    6. Really? A Tonka Hummer??? You better get a Tonka Jeep to pull the Hummer out of the mud!
    7. Do me a favor and figure out the specific gravity of gravity for me please. I'm dying to know.
    8. Should be duct tape. Add a can of WD 40 and you can MacGuyver anything.
    10. I see you love stupid phones just like me.
    11 & 14. You need a multitool. Bonus corkscrew/nail file/can opener/etc/etc/etc.
    13. Can also be used to measure intelligence and attention span.
    15 & 16. Nice, very nice.

    And what? No rouge for emergency touch ups? That's the only way to be a stylish rogue.

    Slant..

    Notice the lack of conceal cowhide, thus the need for a roll of 3" adhesive tape...

    Use it now, 'cuz come hot weather, pulling it off is gonna suck & give yer epidermis grounds for divorce...

    EDC in my world has meant "Ethylene Dichloride" our reaction inhibitor where I worked, LOL, but come to think about it, it was one of my everyday carries for 28 years.

    Slant and Gun, I do vary the loadout as needed. The Hummer hasn't gotten stuck yet but one day when it slipped down in the car's seat hinge and got lost while I was driving, and also going Vroom Vroom with my Hummer. Reaching down to rescue it got me to swerve across 2-3 lanes but everyone kindly got out of my way. Then there was the time I made the mistake of playing with the Hummer while my girlfriend was with me. She took the thing and tossed it into the back seat. I wept bitter tears (inwardly of course -- I'm no fool).

    I do have duct tape and WD40 already in the car, where I keep the 4-month food supply, jugs of water, extra gas cans, flares, firewood, tent, AR-15s, full set of tools including drill press and lathe, defibrillator, surgical supplies, gold bullion, all the other normal stuff that everyone should have at hand, just in case of the apocalypse or Red Dawn scenario while I'm on my way to Kroger at 3pm via a dangerous, treacherous 4-blocks of paved modern city street right in the middle of Houston. Shudder.

    With all the carry load, sometimes I just wrap duct or strapping tape around my whole body, adding items per wrap until I'm encased in goodies. Of course I have to hop to the car but there are disadvantages to everything, especially advanced planning scenarios.

    Specific gravity of gravity is 1.023 at sea level. I checked.

    Tried measuring my attention span, got bored, instead played the "how high" game you play with measuring tapes, seeing how high you can slide the tape up before it breaks over. Forgot to jot down my best score. If you play the game, yes, of course, there are different classes depending on whether you've got a 1/2" or 1" tape in hand.

    Definition of a perfect "space pen": a #2 pencil.

    I love stupid phones. I genuinely like the convenience of a cellphone, for its ONE true purpose, making & receiving calls. A true technological advance that's good to have. But what I do NOT wish to do is surf the Net, play games, take pics, text, write a novel, or perform any other smartphone function, thank you, no.

    Only thing is, though I bought it for the purpose, I don't really carry my 45. It's too bulky and heavy for what I like to carry. The Mauser Pistol is really ideal except it's a bit too light of a cartridge in my opinion for a serious carry weapon, although I will say I believe Mr. Bad Guy would not fare well contesting it. 6 shots in the face with almost any cartridge would ruin his day. The 9mm is as Ideal as I have for carry. However, I'm thinking about one of the baby Glocks in 9mm. It is potent enough for most any BG and it is still much lighter than this S&W.

    That .45 you've got is gorgeous, snake. Nothing quite like a 1911, is there?

    Stock 1911s are a bit heavy, you're right. I really like my lightweight alloy Springfield "Operator" model. If there's any way to slightly improve on the basic design, that's it.

    Agreed about the light caliber of the **** pistol but as you said, any caliber works okay if it's the other guy getting shot.

    The baby Glocks are okay but a but clunky. Also take a look at the slimmer Kahr pistols.

    Sam, Do you have a generator for the drill press and lathe. Me, I got the real cool battery powered models. Also, shame on you. No welding rig and blast furnace. Or was that already installed when you bought the T Bird?

    Among the accessories that this loaded LX T-Bird came with was a small SNAP nuclear generator. Not enough to power the engine but great for accessories! The arc welding attachments are still in their original Ford packing in the trunk (this trunk was given a "3-body" rating by the Detroit mafia). No blast furnace however. I guess I'm not totally prepared for apocalyptic events as much as some of our readers here. Some of them, according to previous posts, won't leave home (er, excuse, their "compound") unless fully supplied for 1 year in the wilderness, even if it's a quick trip to the Home Depot to pick up some more tools.

    About every year or so, I'll post an EDC thread. This make sense to me, since I'm usually carrying something different by the time I post the next one :roll2:


    So, how 'bout it guys and gals. What are you carrying......and remember, pics or it ain't true. :tooth:



    Glock 19, wearing Sevigny Carry Sights, black rear and fiber optic front, and a Smith & Wesson 642 for a back-up.

    Maxpedition Spartan Wallet.

    Citizen EcoDrive with a Casio band.

    Benchmade Mini Barage.

    Christian silicone bracelet turned inside out (somebody's gonna read something into that).

    Casio G'Zone Commando.

    And my yellow lip-stick..........actually Burt's Beez Wax lip balm.




    EDCUpdate012.jpg




    When I'm not carrying my Glock 19, I'm carrying my Smith & Wesson M&P 45.

    EDCUpdate017.jpg



    I carry one or the other about 98% of the time...........the other 2% is when I'm feeling particularly Glock 34ish, or 1911ish. :tooth:

    How do you like the grip stippling? I've thought about doing it to my Glock 30.

    Oh I just hate it......but I'm very clumsy, so whenever I've got a hot soldering iron in my hand I usually end up tripping and falling onto a polymer frame. :tooth:


    I honestly don't see why the factory doesn't offer this as an extra option. Every plastic gun I've ever come into contact with is IMO, too slippery. I want something with some GRIP! The first thing I do with my polymer guns is stipple the grip area.......sometimes even before the first range session. AFTER the first range session, they also get some dremel lovin.

    Guns usually are too slick, and don't have enough space to put your fingers (and toes) where they are supposed to go.....with polymer framed guns I can solve both of these with a soldering iron, a dremel, and several hours of work. With a metal framed gun it usually takes a trip to the UPS store and up to a grand in services.......seriously no bueno. :(

    I've never had a "problem" with them......but have always seen room for improvement.

    To not make something better for you, just because it came from the manufacturer a certain way is IMHO, depressing and shows lack of imagination, remember.....there's no such thing as "good enough".

    That is because you just use your fingers not fingers and toes.

    Though I did have to change out the rosewood grips on a .44 mag Redhawk because the point of the plowshare dug into my hand and the grip on a SP 101 to tame recoil and would on a blackhawk for +P ammo if they made a Hogue monogrip for the model with the internal lock. But none of this because of slip sliding away or too many toes.

    You could save a lot of time by using the soldering iron and Dremel tool on your hands, fingers, feet and toes. That way you'd always be grippy. Another plus for that would be you wouldn't need special shoes to chase mall ninjas up walls and across ceilings.

    I tried that, doesn't work well; then every 6 months to a year or so your have to go it again.

    I found the newer Springfield XDM series has a much better stippling and grip surface than other polymer pistols I've tried.

    Or, alternately, move to Texas or another gun-friendly Republican-controlled state? Nice knives, tho.

    Hawaii is like that too. At least you could carry fixed blade knives as well. Just no double edged or switchblades. My primary was a Cold Steel SRK. I'm glad Oregon thinks adults can be responsible. But the knife laws here are confusing. Even the sheriff I talked to wasn't sure what was legal.

    Massive Ruger LCP with an Uncle Mike's pocket holster . I think I may be soon replaceing the holster with something a little more ... I dunno yet . A Smith & Wesson folding knife . They don't cost alot & are sharp , work great & don't fall apart . One of those survival braclets cause Charlie Bronson always had rope . Keys for everything . Dumb phone - I hate replaceing things when they aren't broke yet ! A watch so I know when Walking Dead is on .
