Carrying in General...
I'm just curious what you guys carry and how in your day to day life. For example:
I carry a Ruger LCP with CT in Galco Pocket Holster in strong side (left) front pocket.
Wallet rear strong side pocket
Spyderco Tenacious clipped onto rear strong-side pocket
iPhone 4 weak side front pocket (along with whatever I pick up, change, cards, etc...)
Car/house keys clipped on a Niteize S-Binder weak-side on a belt loop and tucked into rear pocket.
I would love to carry the knife on my strong side front pocket along with the LCP but the knife will get in the way of a potential draw of the firearm, and that's not okay... I'm just curious what you guys do. I'd really like to replace the Tenacious with either an Emerson, or a Spyderco with the Emerson wave opening thingy...
Anyways, looking forward to hearing from you guys.
In the field, I carry a G26 in a Tagua open top belt holster
In the office, I carry either a 442 or 627 in a Tagua open top holster
Secondary carry, Springfield Mil-Spec in a Galco holster.
LEFT REAR POCKET
Surefire E2LED Defender.
My carry changes a lot since I never know exactally what I will be doing from one day to the next. Something I have found handy is keeping a few snake shot rounds in my pocket in case I run into a snake or two at a cell site.
My Captain America days are slowly winding down, as I use to carry enough to take on the 5th Chinese Hoard. Currently, I carry my S&W 640 and occasionally, my Kimber Pepper Blaster.
Primary Glock 36 4:00 strong side, BUG Kel Tec P3AT with CT laser and spare mag right front pocket.
Lock Blade Folder clipped right rear pocket, small tactical flash light shirt pocket.
My EDC is an ASP Street Defender.
My threat matrix is walk to car in driveway. Drive to work. Park in work lot. Walk 50 ft. to door, enter company. Sit in chair. Reverse order on trip home.
There are no likely threats I have to deal with, so a firearm is normally unnecessary. In my vehicle, I keep several knives, including a 6" assisted-opener and a 24" sword. I'll put the LC9 in the console if heading downtown.
When carrying large sums of cash, when going into urban areas, then I'll carry the LC9 or SR9c, depending on how deep into the inner city I'm going. One time in 7 years I've gotten close to having to mace down a bozo, but it de-escalated and everybody went home happy. Another time in the same period I was near using combatives but the guy backed down.
There are differing schools of thought on this and I don't disrespect those who have some kind of "carry always, carry everywhere" mentality. Being a martial artist, I don't feel helpless without a firearm; quite the reverse, I see weapons of opportunity all around me, all the time.
Welcome to the forum.
A Glock 19,23 or 36 in a High Noon Public Secret holster worn in the appendix posistion inside the waistband.
Cold Steel Lawman folding knife clipped to strong side front pocket.
ASP Street Defender pepper spray on my keyring.
I am 65 years old and my hand to hand days are pretty much over so I want the odds stacked in my favor.

I carry around my property all I can as I am waiting for my permit in the mail. However I have had to try a few different setups. What seems most comfy is cbst strongside at 4-4:30, with and lc9. S&w442 bug in strong side front pants pocket, cell in weekside front pocket, keys on a carabiner attached to belt loop. The biggest change was moving my wallet from my rear rift to rear left pocket due to location and depth of my iwb holster. Oh and knife in same pocket (clipped) as the 442. Considering changing this last part. Haven't figured out to what. Those tdc's are tempting me though!!!
Thanks, I'm new to both firearms and self-defense... This forum is a great resource for me!

G27 IWB or OWB
SA XD40 SC in a Pure Kustom "Trooper" Black Ops Pro at about 3:33. Welcome to the DC Forum from Delaware! :smile:
Everything else is subject to availability, legalities, risk management and activities of the day.
Mostly Kimber Ultra CDP II in a Crossbreed Super Tuck Delux at 4 to 4:30 or Ruger SP101 in and at the same. Cooler weather I will sometimes switch to a S&W 4006 in a Bianchi shoulder holster as I can wear a thin or heavy coat and it's concealed well.
I carry a.full size 40 S&W, strong side in a super-tuck IWB by crossbreed holsters. This is absolutely the best carry option for Concealed carry I have found. The weight alone of the full-size 40 is fairly heavy. I wear the crossbreed and the 40 EVERY DAY, it has held up it's part of this bargain to say the least. For the $80.00 it was a easy decision.
Hey guys, I made an EDC video. Thought you might wanna see it.
