Maybe I'll do a YT vid, but for now...

On my person I normally have:

  • Byrd Hawkbill knife
  • Keychain w/suspension clip and SAK (Tinker), ThruNite TiS, tick key, peanut lighter
  • Vehicle keychain w/kubaton, Fenix E05
  • Wallet (with normal wallet stuff) and small ferro rod
  • Phone
  • Glock 26 w+2 extender and one G19 mag for a total of 28 rounds
I have a sling bag with a lot more stuff that I've got listed in the EDC thread.

I always enjoy your videos Frank. Good to see what other people carry.

For me, pretty much every day....

-Leatherman Wave multi tool
-Outdoor Edge Razor-Lite knife with replaceable blade
-Keychain w/spring hook holding a cheapo 100 lumen pen light and waterproof match holder (4 matches)
-Ballpoint pen
-2 cans of Copenhagen (one is for apocalyptic emergencies)
-leather belt with heavy brass buckle which contains one gold and one silver coin behind face plate
-wallet with normal stuff less credit and debit card. I only carry cash ($15.00 max)
-Glock 30s .45 ACP with factory 10 round mag and two G21 13 rounders as back up
-Ankle holster with Beretta .25 Jetfire with 7 round mag
-Each pair of work boots is laced with 550 cord for obvious reasons
-My grandpa's old zippo (carried it in WWII) my good luck charm


Like David I also carry a bag. Mine is a 3 day bag with typical stuff and I think........150 more rounds of 45 ACP

Forgot about my Zippo!  An orange one.

Speed strips are the best thing ever invented for CC wheel guns.  Two or three extra strips in a pocket and no one ever knows.   Cool

You are not kidding! I keep one in my tool box at work, in the glove compartment of each vehicle and in my work bench at home also. Light and very packable, even the little stock Glock 26 mag feels like a chunk in the pocket compared.

They make me tuck my shirt in at my work so my options are limited as to how I can carry. The Airweight in the pocket seems to feel the best for me right now. I'd like to try the Sig p938 my wife carries in her purse or even that Beretta Nanu-nanu I've seen reviewed elsewhere here by TN Frank.

And the chics dig a guy who is ready to pop a cork on a moments notice.

I've carried the same SAK Tinker for about 23 years give-or-take.  I've used it plenty and I've never had to sharpen it.  Frankly it's just a well made knife.  Bought it for $12 new.  Later on I bought my son the same one for him to carry on his EDC key chain.  I wish the blades locked back but still, it's been a great knife for what it was designed for.

That Hawkbill Byrd knife has also worked well and it's definitely sharp!

I also carry the Gerber Suspension.

Bought the extra bits that go over the flat head screwdriver blade to turn it into a phillips head etc.  Looser than I would prefer but it is what it is for how often I'd probably need it.

This is the on-the-body stuff that is always with me (unless I'm at work and then I have a different set of EDC stuff).  So even if I don't have my EDC sling bag (Maxpedition Lunada) with me I have the following covered:
  • Defense
  • Cordage
  • Cutting tools (with other tools available)
  • Fire
  • Light
  • Basic navigation (using the hands of the watch and the sun)

I figure a lot could be done with just those items if necessary.
