    I also carry a Benchmade pen…

    It'll be a while before I can carry (my CCDW class is saturday) but I almost always have a knife and a flashlight on me, though the knife gets left in the Jeep when I'm at work since I work in an airport. The flashlight is a Fenix PD31 and the knife is a CRKT YeaGo. The PD31 does have several functions and brightness levels but with a twist of the end cap the only accessible functions are the solid 304 lumen light and the 304 lumen strobe- click once for solid, twice for strobe and either of those would leave someone seeing stars. If you twist the end cap back there are 3 additional brightness levels and an SOS feature.

    During the work day it's a Wor-Tac Saf-T-Wrench, a self defense impact weapon that I can pass off as a tool. No weapons at work! After work or weekends, I add a Glock 26, TCP 738, and a Flash 2 knife. I really got to get another flashlight!

    Gun and knife. Gun is for SD. Knife, no. I probably shouldn't have voted like that but I answered it literally. You were probably meaning all considered for SD.

    Gun, knife and flashlight. I carry a flashlight during daylight as well. You never know when you will be inside a location where the lights go out.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    G27, G23 spare mag, Leatherman folder, Cell phone, Gladius Maximus and keys/wallet, are the minimum, when I've got cargo pockets (95% o the time) I'll also have one of two Leatherman multi-tools. I keep D cell maglights in the car and under the night stand as backup flashlights. Everything but the gun and spare mag have other handy day to day uses.
