Diggler-I resemble that remark....:neener:

Right front- work keys on a lanyard

Left front- Dorcy single AAA LED flashlight, $6 in bills

Left rear- wallet

No pistol because of where I work ( secure juvenile sex offender treatment facility). The CRKT is technically a violation of policy, but noone has ever called me on it.

What's this? A gold ring with some sort of writing on it...:eek:

March 22, 2004, 10:20 AM
Left front -- money clip (Driver's License, Heath insurace, CCW permit, spare car key, debit card, company AMEX)

Right front -- keys, misc change, listerine "flash strips," Emerson CQC7 wave

Belt -- Sidearmor IWB/G21 with 14 rounds, cell phone

On my key ring, I have two copies of my car keys -- the "real ones" on the main ring, and "valet" keys on a quick disconnect. Also have a Swisstech tool thingy (with no knife) that I travel with.

When I leave the house and want a spare mag, that goes in the left front pocket too.

Don't carry anything in your "knife pocket" but the knife and a handkerchief, or keys, etc. will chew Hell out of your knife's appearance.
It will soon look as if a cat had used the knife for a scratching post!

Lint... and a dime (I don't know where this dime came from).

I'm currently working graveyard and I'm wearing my "jammies" now, getting ready for bed.

I really am currious where this dime came from, I wouldn't have checked my jammie pockets if you didn't ask... why would there be change in my jammie pockets?

Typically I would only have my keys in my pocket (and perhaps a couple receipts), as I keep my Stryker clipped inside the top of my pants and my K9 is either in a belly band or belt holster. My comb and wallet are in my back pockets.
I usually find things in my pocket annoying, so I try to keep it to a minimum.

Am I the only one who carries a lighter for the pure utility of having portable fire?

March 22, 2004, 08:38 PM
Right now? My dorm room key (with a P-38 can opener on the keychain) and my wallet. When I go out to class, I usually carry a pen, too. If I'm driving, I carry my car keys. When I'm going out, I bring my zippo so I can light cigarettes for the ladies. (Yes, it's cheesy, and no, it never gets me anywhere.)

Never carry things in your rear pockets. Bad on your spine when sitting.

No. I am not as careful about it lately because I am usually within walking distance of home, but I have a lighter as well as various tools in my car. When I travel a good distance from home without my car, I have a lighter and a SureFire 6P in my coat pocket. Also, my SAK has a magnifying glass!
