I'd need a pack mule to carry all that stuff if I were 'wearing slacks and a polo shirt' and not some tacticool 5.11 outfit. :D

Well, whatever floats his boat.

EDIT - that part where he talks about using a knife, and how not anybody can do it, can twist it in the wound - LOL

I carry LCP, Benchmade 530V, and a Photon Micro Light when I am going light (typical).

My heavy (hiking) kit is HK - USP .45 FS (+ 1x 12rnd spare mag), Ontario Knife Marine Combat, Bechmade 530V, Surefire E2 Outdoorsman, a pack of crackers, and often the M1 Carbine (+2 15rnd spare mags). Which, save for the rifle, is still less than super-mall-ninja's kit. He must have a LOT of pockets. :rolleyes:

"thats right officer, my tactical vest stopped the single shot that the assailant fired at me so i drew my ASP tactical baton and beat him untill my arm was tired, so i made quick use of tactical knives #1-4 making a single stab&twist with each in areas of his body that would provide me with the tactical advantage. after this made a tactical retreat of 10 feet while covering my retreat with cover fire from my primary weapon performing 2 tactical reloads in the process. after firing my 46th round i drew my secondary weapon from the tactical ankle holster on my left leg and tactically scanned the area for any more potential threats. once i was sure the area was clear i proped my tactical camo nylon wallet open on the ground and used both of my tactical flashlights for maximum illumination to see if i had enough money for all of lawsuits that were probly coming my way and realized that i didnt due to so many non-tactical purchases of tactical gear. i then pulled out my i phone and watched an episode of the human weapon to calm down"

I'm wondering what people would make of my everyday carry. Only one handgun, but lots of other stuff. Fact is I use a lot of it. Even my benchmade tactical pen saw some active duty over the weekend. My canopener fell apart on me, and I had to get some cans of coconut milk open ASAP. I just punched holes around the top and voila.

He won't post anything that's not along the lines of "dude, you're my hero", "wow, I wish I could be like you", "That's so awesome that you're a one-man army", etc, etc. I bet 49 of 50 comments submitted get round filed. This guy is on such an ego trip it's scary. I wonder if he realizes he's the laughing stock of groups who actually know a thing or two about carry and defense.

Maverick223

Cosmoline, I think you are smart. I too carry a P38, it comes in really handy a lot of times (and for a great deal more than just opening cans) when nothing else is handy. I don't even think about it, it resides on my keychain, and if it gets broken a new one (at great expense...about a quarter :p) will soon follow.

Guy on another forum I frequent... his EDC dwarfs this.
More firepower, more reloads, etc... however he also carries some serious first aid and survival gear.
Yea, dude here sounds like some ego tripping wack job... but honestly I dont see anything wrong with carrying as much as you realisticly can.
I have been known to leave the house with 2 1911s, shoulder and strong side, and a snubby in my pocket... with reloads.
If I dont tell you, you wont know I am carrying.I usually have 3+ knives on me also.
Work knives, multiblade folder utility, longer blade lock back defensive knife, cable splicers snips...
Its all in personal choice.
Im not going to laugh at anyone carrying a 5 shot pocket gun, maybe you shouldnt laugh at someone carrying what they can.
Laugh at this guy tho... he sounds like a joke :D

If you think that you need all that stuff, you need to change venues. I think the most exaggerated situation that most people think of when they carry is someone trying to rob the bank/gas station they happen to be occupying. This guy is in for some serious hand-to-hand after gun #1 and #2 are empty as well as the spare mags...you may want to ditch a few of the knives and maybe the spare mags and just load a few hand grenades.
