    minimum- firearm,wallet/id's,knife

    perfered- primary firearm, secondary firearm, 2 reloads for both, primary knife secondary knife, wallet/id's, cellphone, flashlight, backup flashlight, EDC kit bag(this changes a lot)

    Overkill-anything over perfered: this includes bodyarmor, longguns, impact weapons mace, extra ammo, blowout medkits, survival gear.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    My standard everyday carry consists of primary weapon (in my case, CZ75 P-06), spare magazine, folding knife, permit and ID, and cell phone.

    My standard EDC consists of my G22, 2 mags for this, G23, flashlight, folding knife, permit and Id and phone. All together I have probably close to 60+ rounds ready to serve me and keep my family safe.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    My axiom has been, if you carry a gun, you carry a cell phone.

    My EDC includes (in addition to the above)--knife, spare mag, flashlight
    Magazine <> clip - know the difference

    Depends. I don't carry all the time. But if you add my vehicle in there as well as on my person, then it is different. I carry alot of stuff in my Jeep. If I'm out in public, usually a minimum of gun, wallet, knife, and cell.

    I carry what seems like 25 pounds of stuff. CCW, reload, flashlight, pocket knife, money/cards/ID clip, OC spray, 5 pounds worth of keys, lighter, cell phone, and a couple dollars in quarters. Sometimes I carry 2 CCWs w/ reloads for each. The other day, I carried a XD40sc and a Ruger SP101 .357 mag. surprisingly easily...with all of the other stuff.

    EDC: Glock 19 (Comp-Tac Infidel IWB holster), knife (folder in front pocket), cell phone. Will likely add a light (not rail-mounted, just small / tac light for carry) once the tax return comes in.

    Peace.
