My EDC, or by request, what do I carry in my pockets?
I’ve received some different email requests and I suppose I should have expected them. But this question is one of the more common.
Since my ideas concerning BOB’s and other things along those lines are very different then the mainstream blogger in my niche I feel I should share this as well
Starting from the top- 2 Glock 17 magazines in Dale Fricke Mag pouches
A Gerber EOD tool
A SOG Pentagon- old style made in Japan not Taiwan, they changed the blade style when production moved
A Spyderco Military Model-BG42 Steel
On the S ring is a Brunton Helios butane lighter
A 33 rd Glock 9mm magazine
A Gerber LHR in a custom kydex rig by Dale Fricke, again
A Glock white pistol light
A Glock 17, with Trijicon RMR in a Dale Fricke Holster
A key ring, with P38, M4 tool, house key, and hand cuff key and a pocket compass.
Not shown is my roll of 550 cord carried in my cargo pocket or in my Smock depending on the pants Im wearing, and 2 pr of hinged handcuffs
Yes I carry 85 rounds of 9mm HP every day, and 3 knives
Yes believe it or not I’m totally comfortable carrying a 9mm vs any other caliber for a handgun as a daily carry. I refuse to enter into that debate before anyone starts it.
My own feelings here. I believe I can handle almost anything up too and including a Jaguar in my living room with this load, ( or a deer, the wildlife version of home invasion) and its still not excessively heavy with the right belt. I carry it all concealed, and it rides fine as I have been doing it with the same basic weight ( maybe not specific items) for over 20 years
I hope now you see how this integrates into the load in my smock and how I’ve layered my daily items into my preps as a first line system.
I hope I answered everyone’s questions..
