EAA Witness 9mm in WonderFinish (or the XD(m))in a Ross M5NS pancake, CRKT Van Hoy snaploc, mini firesteel and scraper in the wallet, CCW badge and ID, watch, ring and testicles. 


If you're carrying daily, that means you have testicles....men and women alike.
If you're not carrying......well, you can figure it out, right?

Every Day Carry Equipment

    * Cell phone/Pocket PC
          o I also use it for time, email, contacts, appointments, entertainment/games, poker timer & password keeper program
    * SOG Flash II folding knife
          o I use this often and needs sharpening every week or two.
          o This was my first type of knife I started with and figured I would get a better one if I liked carrying it around.
          o I haven't needed to upgrade it, but I could be missing out on better quality knives.
          o I actually have two of these and when one is dull I switch it out with the other. I don't have to stay on top of the sharpening this way.
    * Surefire Z2 LED Combat Light
          o I use to use the high output light bulb but the battery lasted only 20-30 minutes and now it last 12 hours.
    * Ruger LCP & 1 extra magazine in a Mag-packer at work right cargo pocket with Super Fly holster
    * Kel-Tec PF-9 (not at work) & 1 extra magazine in a Mag-packer front right pocket
    * Leatherman Juice S2 multi-tool
          o I hardly have to get the toolbox out for quick fixes around the house.
    * Keys (my house FOB looks a bit like sulla's)
          o I can separate the truck FOB with only the ignition key and keep my house keys with me.
    * The wallet is a decoy. All the cards are the fake ones that come in the mail with offers.
    * I have my real card wrapped in my main cash wad in my front pocket.
    * 5.11 Taclite Pro Pants
          o These don't leave wear marks like the regular 5.11 pants. Everything above has its own pocket.

Wallet
Keys w/ OC Spray
Kershaw Leek Serrated
Ray-O-Vac 3 Watt LED Light
Ronson Butane Lighter
Palm Treo 750
G23 w/ Crimson Trace
Spare Magazine
Yaesu VX-6R HT

This is a bare minimum for me and what I normally have on me throughout the day.  Except for the Glock...can't carry at my job.

Other than this, I normally have a County Comm Sat Comm bag somewhere close with more gear that would probably be considered a GHB.

Custom Springfield 1911 in a Safariland 6360 while on duty, or the same gun in a Milt Sparks Summer Special for concealment.

I went home last night and added some Grim-Locs to my Jumbo Versipak like Swanson has on his 5.11.  No intended purpose, but it seemed like as good a place as any.

GIGAJACK; What is Password keeper program?  Is this something you have on your phone?  Tell me more.  Not so wild guess, is the older of your two vehicles a Blazer or Jimmy?

BADGER; where do you keep that radio?  Just in a pocket with the antenna sticking out?

It is KeePass for the computer and I sync the database file with my KeePass for Smart Devices software.

Not so wild guess, is the older of your two vehicles a Blazer or Jimmy?

Both of my vehicles are 1998 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4WD.

If I'm just running out to a store or something...yes...I just stick it into a coat pocket or maybe clip it to my belt.  During my workday though, it normally stays on my Sat Comm bag that I carry to and from work.



Once the weather warms up, I'm sure I'll have to find a better way to carry it when I'm not wearing a coat all of the time.

 I can't carry the S&W 442 at work. The Altoids contain 2 more speed strips of .38 semi-wadcutters.
Whenever I can't tote the pistol, I have some sort of projectile weapon on me, hence the darts, I keep a slingshot in my car. Some sort of projectile weapon beats none at all.
The tablets in the foil packs are Iodine tabs in case Hadji gets a nuke.

Usually one of the pistols.  Most likely the .45 unless I cannot wear a loose fitting t shirt or something to cover it.  Sometimes the LCP but any gun is better than no gun.   I often tuck the XML into a pocket and or carry the Surefire 6PLED.   The knife is a benchmade auto folder.  I'd like a different knife for edc as I dont care for the tanto point.   I'll also often slip in a leatherman multi tool.

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.

Man!!  That must be nice!  I'm forced to de-gun before I enter the building.  I have a Secure-it box in the vehicle where the G23 stays during the work day.  The mags go with me into work.

I go from home to work, through my work day and then back home unarmed the rest of the time I have my G23 with me. It sucks because there are several of us including the partners in my office that own firearms and shoot we even go to gun shows and go shooting together from time to time but there is one guy, a vet of all people that keeps us from being able to carry in the office. :(
