I was wondering what you guys who ccw your pistols do with them while you are at work? Do you not carry on you work days? Do you lock them in your car? This is something I've been thinking about for myself while I look into getting my wife and I our ccw permits.

I usually open carry at work, along with most of my co-workers.

I guess I'll have to hook up a pic.  I carry either a SIG P229 Elite or a SIG P239 (40) or Taurus PT22, The SIG's with 2 extra mags and a S&W SRT knife ($10 @ Big 5).  Money, the evil credit and debit cards, polymer neck knife on dog tag chain (metal detectors can't find it), a cell phone, keys with cuff key and light.

If you haven't heard of it the Fobus is the most comfortable all day carry holster I have worn in my 12 years of full time carry.  $20 you can't go wrong.

Almost forgot, those belly/fanny bags scream "GUN".  If you don't want people to know your carrying a weapon then don't wear those.   They also scream "COP", so be careful.

Heh, that's what I wear.  You'd think people would notice, but I've never had anyone comment or point or act uncomfortable.  I think it's because I look like a 53-year-old nerd, and the waist pack just fits the whole nerd fashion idiom so well.  ;D

Videos of My EDC

Hey SurvivalKing, I wanted to say, great job on your every-day-carry videos!  +1 from me.  Seriously, well done!

Concerning your mini FAK, I have two suggestions.  Include in it at least one pair of latex gloves and a mini CPR mask.  I would recommend these two items above just about everything else, because in my experience, for life and death situations (the situations that really matter the most), they are the two things which you will most likely want to have on-hand,,,  that can’t be improvised, and that must be ready in a second’s notice.  (The EPI-pen is another a great idea,,, I have been thinking of trying to pick up one of these myself)

Concerning latex gloves, there is a laundry list of reasons why to have these – primarily for your own survival (who knows who you might need to assist), and secondarily when you put them on it projects an air of readiness on your part that can have a calming effect, and can make people more ready to do what you tell them to.

Having had to perform CPR on a few people or so, I can say with utter conviction that it really sucks to do CPR on someone after they vomit.  2 out of the last 4 people I can remember doing CPR on threw up on me, and 1 of the 2 that didn’t couldn’t because his rib cage was crushed,,, and in this case, I am really glad that I had gloves and a mask on-hand, because the poor guy was a bloody mess (he also happened to be the only 1 of the 4 that sadly didn’t survive). 

I hope this helps,

great vid gigaJack, I took a look at your site and it is full of some good info.

I have thought about the 5.11 tactical pants, are they cotton or are they something that could dry fast (i.e. nylon type fabric)?

The Taclite Pro Pants are 65% polyester and 35% poly cotton ripstop but the Tactical Pants are all cotton. I started buying just their regular tactical pants until the Taclite Pro came out. Now I just by the Taclite Pro Pant.

The Taclite Pro Pant beads liquid and can be wiped if done quickly but they will absorb liquid if kept wet.

Hey man thanks!  I am going to film an addendum to that video sometime this week on my shiny new camera!  Got the FAK, really excited to show it off!  Has the CPR mask, the gloves, a range of life saving medication, 2 kelrix rolls and a pack of celox.  Sits pretty in my right hand pocket, moving my wallet, iphone, and keys to my back pockets.

One is always with me, the other is always near.  I tend to carry the USP when carrying openly, and the P2000 when going for concealed.   In either case, there's always a spare mag, a Surefire E2D LED Defender, and a Leatherman Skeletool CX as well, in addition to the typical stuff like Blackberry, keys, wallet, etc.

Outside of the survival world, but still with me virtually everywhere I go:

I hate you all.... I teach in a prison so at work I carry my wallet with nothing interesting.  Most days I have a pen in my pocket too.  If I am not working all I add is a pocket knife, lighter, and smokes.  Wisconsin has no ccw.  I can't even keep much in the car since it is not allowed on grounds.

I really have two different EDC's

My M-F 8-5 EDC is stripped down to allow me to look more business than tactical.
It consists of
Good solid leather belt
Stainless Multifunction Watch w/ Silcone band
Mirrored Lens Sunglasses
Leatherman Tool (Varies day to day which model I carry. I own 7 of them)
Two lighters and a book of matches
Hand Sanitizer
Cell Phone
Battery Operated Cell Phone Charger
Spring Operated Knife (legal in FL to CWP holders)
Smart Carry Invisible Holster
Glock 19 w/ Crimson Trace Laser Grips
17 Round Magazine in addition to the 15+1 in the pistol
Fenix LD-20 Tactical Light
Wallet Contents  - Concealed License, NRA Membership Card, USCCA Membership Card, AAA Membership Card + AAA Bail Bond Card, Two post self defensive shooting instructional cards, Spare car key and razor blade. Of course there is cash, Visa Check cards and a silver bar in the wallet as well.[/size]


My Off the Clock EDC is everything above PLUS
Sabre 5.0 (Law Enforcement Size/Strength) OC Stream
Beretta 3032 Tomcat w/ Spare mag
Additional 17 Round Mag for the Glock 19
Fenix TK-12 Tactical Light mounted in a slightly modified Blackhawk Night-Ops Speed Holster

 The girl I'm casually seeing right now thinks that I'm insane to carry all this stuff with me everywhere I go. She really gets annoyed when we have to wait for a table in a restaurant instead of sitting at the bar because I'm carrying two pistols with me. (State law in FL)
Anyone have any suggestions on what I can lose/add to my EDC package?

I completely forgot the digital camera (Canon 6X Optical Zoom 10MP) that I used to take the two pictures above is always on my right hip in a large nylon holster and my Black 8GB Ipod Nano 2nd Generation lives in my shirt pocket so I can listen to Jack, The NRA News Podcast and The Armed American Radio Podcast.

So I guess that if I wear mine that is hot pink with a neon green POLICE patch on the front and have my tac vest on with Federal Agent on the back when I go to get my coffee and doughnuts from Dunkin Doughnuts that might be a tip off that I have some sort of weapon on my person?
