    I finally got the bugs worked out to where I can upload pictures in a reasonable amount of time, so I'm kinda having fun with it.

    [​IMG]

    Witness Compact 10mm w/ spare mag, Coast LED-lenser V2 (3x AAAA model), Kershaw Blur and a Gerber Diesel multiplier. Also a Sabretool M4 and another small LED light on the keychain. The Witness rides in a DeSantis strapless OWB that was made for a G19 (the only one that fit well with my modification to the triggergaurd)

    No electronic leash for me, though. I hate cell phones. If I'm not at home or work, I'm busy and it can wait.

    How 'bout ya'll?

    Besides this, I guess I have my keys, wallet and family jewels... all of which I aim to protect!

    Light, multi plier, spare mag and pistol are on the belt. Knife and keys in pocket, along with lighter and wallet.

    You think this is a lot of gear, you should see what lives in my car;) .

    I'll bite:

    First of all, my "light" gear (minus the P3AT while at work)
    [​IMG]
    (the MiniMag has the 3-LED Nite-Ize upgrade)

    And more "heavy" gear - the P3AT is replaced with a G19 (RM Low Rider IWB rig) and extra magazine of Silvertips:
    [​IMG]

    Most of it is self-explanatory, but as for the rest:
    "matte" wallet = throw-away wallet.
    plastic tube = glucose tablets (low blood sugar)
    contact lens rewetting drops
    the keyring in the upper right corners has a photon micro-light, Leatherman Squirt P4, and a pill-holder fob with some basic meds (ibuprofen, claritin, ect)

    I agree with the OP about the "electronic leash." The times where I carry my cell are few and far between, 99% of the time it's in my car, turned off.

    Good to see so many people consider their cell phones as part of their daily stuff.

    Ah, the throw-away wallet. A handy "just in case" tool that bridges the gap between two extremes:

    1) Give the mugger your money, DL, credit cards, CWP, ect
    2) Blow the mugger away

    It's a cheap wallet with a few dollar bills and some assorted worthless cards (old video card, fake credit card from the daily deluge of applications) - NOTHING with my name on it, btw. If confronted with a mugger, this can be taken out and thrown to the ground at the muggers feet. Preferably at an awkward angle, so he's distracted and I can either run or draw, depending on what's appropriate.

    Sure, you can do this with your REAL wallet, but the difference is this way if I throw it and run, I WON'T have to deal with cancelling my cards, and getting a new DL and CWP, and whatever else is in there.:cool:

    Too many loadouts to take pics of. Some days it could be a P-3AT, half my keys, and a wallet. Depending on where I'm going or what I'm doing it could be any or all of the following things:

    MK9 + extra mag, P-3AT + extra mag, Multi-tool, small multi-tool with scissors, semi-tactical folder*, glasses, sun glasses, contact case, rewetting drops, wallet, keys, small tin with assorted meds, bottle of water, Streamlight, the Streamlight's lanyard, cell phone, cell phone headphones, work cell phone, Laptop, a book or 2 to read, PDA, SD cards, flash drive, Zippo, strike anywhere matches in a case, and/or ear plugs (not job related just for if I'm sick of listening to anyone or everyone).

    All of this is carried, depending on the loadout, clipped on to a belt/waist band (P-3AT's belt clip is such a nice feature), in pockets, in holsters, in a fanny pack, in a murse, or in a back pack. The murse and back pack ONLY have a gun if it's a BUG and ONLY if I know I'm not going to be setting them down any place I can't control.

    Grant you, the larger loadouts are less likely to happen... but they do. ... and no, it's not very comfortable. But 'tis comforting.


    *It's semi-tactical because it might be tactical in the hands of someone who can use it as a weapon... for me, it's just a really sharp knife I can get to if something needs opening. My wife refers to the 3 knives as Level 1 through level 3 tech support and I have to carry all of them to birthdays and during Christmas.

    I currently resemble some of the too crowded pics.

    I am working on cutting back to just ccw firearm, license and ccw and credit cards, money, one knife.

    Not sure I will get all the way cut back, but working on it.

    Not at all! The time-consuming part, at least for me, was/is figuring out the best way to arrange everything in my pockets as I add/remove gear for the occasion.

    Cargo pants help a bit, but in a pinch I can carry it all in jeans, with only my knife clip and maybe the tailcap of my Minimag poking out of my right and left back pockets, respectively, to break up my "smooth" outline! ;) :p

    Norm - looks to me like a Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement knife with belt holster - Item # DBA-811 in the Cheaper Than Dirt catalog I used to verify my guess! ;)

    To each his own, but while I don't think you should fill all of your pockets just because they're THERE...

    I *do* think you should live by the words "BE PREPARED," and that extends to more mundane things than just being able to shoot a bad guy before he shoots you...! :uhoh:

    Norm357,
    It is a KA-BAR TDI plain edge knife. My wife bought it for father's day. It is a great knife with AUS8 steel for only $30. They are easy to find.
