One of the things I do whenever I get a new pair of shoes/boots/sneakers/whatever is to replace the laces with paracord.
It's a great way to add a little paracord to your EDC just in case.  Besides having more utility than regular laces, the stuff actually ties better (even when wet) and lasts longer.
Just my 2 cents worth....

And they stay tied much better. I had boot laces that were horrible at staying tied until I replaced them with paracord, more out of necessity than some kind of prep thing.
Now they stay tied and i have a little paracord.

Glock 26 with crimson trace in a bianchi carry lock II holster, and/or Ruger LCP with crimson trace also. In the wallet 2 band-aids, 2 bobby pins, a razor blade, a SS 7 in 1 credit card multi tool and the normal ID and a little cash. Right from pocket... Kershaw Ken Onion assisted opener, my keys with a little tiny 1 inch long "streamlight" flash light. I also made my own keychain out of 4 ft. of para-cord and some beads. First I tied a monkey fist knot slid on a stack of beads, tied a loop and another stack of beads and tied it off down by the monkey fist. Now it acts as a keychain, ranger beads, or 4 ft. of paracord. Fisher space pen in the left front pocket and a SS Cross pen in the lapel pocket.
 I consider my EDC my..... get to the car gear. In the car I have my Get home Gear.
 I wear a suit or slacks with a shirt and tie and no one has a clue to the level of prepairedness on my person

Its the classic American science fiction novel The Man in the High Castle. Its set in an alternate history where Japan and Germany won the second world war. It was written in the early 60's so its been about for a while and is one of the best pieces of American literature.

Interesting.  I'll have to pick it up.  What sort of HT is that up on the right?  And what's the square LCD screen thingy (or is it something else?) just above and to the right of the camera?

The HT is a modified Yaesu VX-6 with a Comet SMA-701 multiband antenna. The LCD thingy is indeed a NAV unit. Its from TomTom, its used with my car but I also have the amateur radio points of intrest installed, so wherever I am I can look up the 2m/70cm as well as the 4m repeaters.

Ok, I just have to ask. . .why would you swap to the smaller frame with the longer barrel?  Why not stick with the Model 17?  I really can't see any benefit over the 26 if you have a decent holster for concealment (as a comparison, I carry an H&K USP Expert (significantly larger than a G17) every day, but I use a Milt Sparks concealment holster).

Greetings Professor,

The reasons for the smaller frame with the longer barrel is for the legal requirements here in Australia. I do plan to purchase a G26 & swap out the barrel for a 120mm barrel (G17A barrel) to own & train with a smaller framed handgun. There is no glimpse of a possible positive change of attitude of any future Australian government towards firearms. So this forces me towards this option. There is also no reasonable way as a citizen to have open or concealed carry here. If my dream came true & the Australian government changed the law to allow small framed handguns with short barrels, & allowed concealed carry, my name would be on the application list for license & training A.S.A.P. & the G26 would not require modification. I can not claim any practical experience for concealed carry, my knowledge is the "Office Chair in front of the computer display". My research has lead me to lean towards smaller lighter in everything I carry with testing & consideration given towards weight to firepower ratio (Thanks Nutinfancy).

I googled the H&K USP Expert you carry, nice looking gun, they are available here for $2,385.00 retail.

Hope my answer gives you the information you wanted.

Regards

PB.

So here is my actual EDC carry, and yes, I do carry all of this, I am no nutnfancy (I figure, if I ever get into a situation where weight is actually an issue, I can just throw away what I don't need.. I have many duplicates of everything so even though it would be a loss, it would not be that bad)



-Keltec PF9 loaded with Gold Dot JHP's, one extra magazine, with Viridian C5L green laser/light combo
-Cold Steel Recon 1 rebladed with the CQC-8 Dao shape, done by Mr. Demko himself, and in CPM 154
-Al Mar Sere 2000, one of the best knives I have ever used (VG10)
-Benchmade Mini-Pika II, just to be a beater
-4sevens Maelstrom X7, at 480 lumens (OTF) this thing is a monster
-Fenix LD15, backup light, 100+ lumens on a single AAA!
-Two backup AAA's
-Two backup RCR123A's by Tenergy
-Hanky
-Bandana
-ordinary bic lighter
-40 ft of 550 cord
-widgy bar
-Stun Gun
-Cold Steel Inferno Pen pepper spray
-DMT sharpening stones (extra course, fine, extra extra fine)



Now some closeups:


Keltec PF9, awesome flat little 9 mm, I don't even realize it is there. I didn't know if I was going to like the Viridian C5L, but it is an excellent product, and I highly recommend it.. it allows me to identify my target really quickly, and shoot very accurately from the hip





Demko rebladed Recon 1, I love the CQC8 blade shape






Cold Steel Inferno Pen unit, I keep the grip tape on it so that by touch, I can know which direction the nozzle is pointing





4sevens X7, excellent light, but I made a few mods... First I added a glow in the dark button so I can find it easily in the dark. Next, I put a layer of velcro on the flashlight, and then I have a round plastic piece (a part of a tumi syringe) that I cut out, put the other velcro piece on the inside of that, and put skateboard griptape around it (for traction). This was done to give it a "candlestand" ability

Closeup on my work

Maybe someday. What's funny is there are loopholes in the law that let you carry.

Your weapon must be in a container (hard shell, nylon with zippers, etc.) that is specifically made to hold the weapon. It must be unloaded. You can then carry this inside another bag. As a result, people have started making back packs and such that have a pouch to hold the gun and a couple mags. While not ideal, what this means is that you can technically legally carry concealed without any sort of permit aside from the state firearm owners ID. Just a matter of pulling the gun out and sliding a magazine in.

Might have to try this someday.

Demko rebladed Recon 1 interesting.

I have and old Recon 1 in one of my tool kits....Is there not like a one year wait on a Demko knife?

Looking to add a good multi-tool to replace my Swiss army knife.  It's a good knife, better than some of the cheaper Gerber promo multi tools that the Swiss army knife replaced.  I do have a bunch of multi-tools at work, car, tool bags, back back, etc.  But it's not an EDC if I don't carry it... :)

Just to expedite the answering of your question that pistol would be a Sig P380.  Nice guns that are supposed to emulate the controls of a 1911 in a small caliber and size.
