    Yes, another edc thread

    I've tried the search and couldn't find what I was looking for. Im trying to slim down my edc "get up" if you will.

    I carry a govt size 1911 (getting a smaller one soon) IWB at 3:30 and a extra mag IWB at 8:30. I also have my personal phone at 11:30 and my work phone at 12:30.

    At work I use my leatherman and a L2 series flashlight everyday. I'm trying to figure out where to carry them on my belt to minimize printing (left pocket full of keys and right pocket wallet and inhaler).

    There are a ton of threads with PICTURES of what others are carrying , but I want to see PICTURES of the gear ON the person, not laid out on the bed. thanks for any help!!


    looking for pictures of people carrying a firearm and a multitool and flashlight

    Welcome to the forum. I don't have pictures, but I'd suggest shifting your phones to the 10:00 & 11:00 position, then you could carry your Leatherman and flashlight at the 2:00 position. Also look at Lowes or Home Depot. They make cases that should accommodate both your Leatherman and flashlight in one pouch. How tight is your company on personal calls on your work phone? I only carry my personal phone on week days and days I'm not working. It would help cut down on the clutter.

    First off, welcome to the forum.

    Next, with all you have going on, it's a tall order to look at what others are doing and make many comparisons. Since every person has unique characteristics it's going to be difficult to draw many conclusions based on what they are doing. The one thing I would say is with all the 'unthreatening' gear that you're hanging off your belt, your secret stuff could possibly hide in plain sight, so to speak. If you've got phones and stuff breaking up any telling outlines, then you've got some built in cover for the things that you don't want people to see. I'll admit that I'm just sort of guessing though. I don't think I could function with that much stuff all around my waist. I'd have to get some cargo type pants and utilize additional pockets or 'off body' some of the stuff in a bag or something.

    Anyway, good luck with your search!

    Well maybe tugging on your "Glock Perfection" t-shirt might scream "gun" a little more, but yeah, that's pretty much a dead giveaway that you're hiding something.

    I don't watch many of those Youtube videos, but in the ones I have watched, that incessant shirt tugging is the rule, not the exception.

    For what it's worth, I put my leatherman in a front pocket and a mini-mag just forward of a IWB. On opposing side are two cell phone cases. One has a cell phone. The other has two speed loaders.
    The other gear printing actually masks any printing from the IWB. No kidding.
    I suggest using misdirection rather than straight concealment. ..actually a combination of the two, with some creative clothing modifications.
