    CCW "kit" idea

    Hey guys,

    I was thinking today of what I would put in all those pouches inside the 5.11 Tactical Monterey jacket I plan on carrying my USP under. I came up with: mags, Surefire G2Z, and one of those Pre-paid cell phones incase I accidently left my cell phone in the Jeep. What do you guys think? What all do you carry?

    Not much but it goes with me everywhere I go. I used to carry a lot more but I can't really get away with that any more. Whenever possible:

    Hmmm - well I do use vest when out, and on bike - so if I have that on - then it contains Nokia cell, and NAA mini. Once colder then heavy shirt takes on same duties.

    If no vest then still have usual SIG of course,
    Leatherman Wave,
    Surefire E1e,
    Buck Mayo TNT.

    Of course too, wallet rear left.

    I suspect that your jacket will be just like a new house: all kinds of room at first, then before you know it you can't fit an extra toothpick in. So...I wouldn't worry about filling the pouches - nature abhors a vacuum.

    That said: folding knife, Surefire light, spare mag, cell phone, manual PDA (little calendar book ), wallet, business card case containing CCW and DL in case I'm relieved of my "main" wallet, keys with Photon microlight. Sometimes my Leatherman (need to carry it more often).

    Oh, and Bat Shark Repellant.

    I amost always carry extra mags. 2 knives, maybe a BUG , cell phone . Night time I add a flashlight. If I use the 5.11 vest I also carry spare batteries, a notepad and pencil, maybe another knife as well as my day related items.

    Finally!

    People are talking about cell phones! Personally, I don't even go to the corner store without one. I mentioned this cell phone idea in "related equipment"

    Would I rely on one as a primary weapon? certainly not! Do I need one to call for help if I need it? ABSOLUTELY!

    On a daily basis I carry the following:

    Two folding knives. I have two Benchmades (not sure of make), a sypdeco, and a kershaw. I carry one of the BM's and one of the other two, depending on my wardrobe. One clipped at the back of my right front pocket, one clipped front side of my Left rear pocket.

    Two lights. My Surefire E1e light in my front left pocket. An LED keychain (think it's an ASP) clipped to the beltloop on the Right side of my belt.

    Keys go in the Right Front pocket. Wallet in my Right Rear Pocket (might change that to Left if I ever start carrying (as I plan to carry Strong Side).

    On my belt I carry my cell phone, a two way radio (when @ school, talks to security as I'm the EMS captain), and my squad pager.

    When I'm actually on duty, I'm in EMS BDU pants, a uniform shirt of some kind. In my left thigh pocket I carry my scope, in the Right pocket I carry two pens and a set of EMS shears. My knives are in the same place, as is my wallet.

    I also wear a duty belt with the following things on it: Two glove pouches, carrying 3 sets of gloves and a CPR mask, a pager and cell phone case, my Surefire 6P light, and a radio pouch. I also have the room to add a horizontal pouch with other tools when I'm doing EMS duty on a bicycle.

    Unfortunately I'm not allowed to carry a firearm in NJ. Additionally, I'm not allowed to carry while I'm working as an EMT either, so that's out. And carrying as a firefighter, into a fire...doesn't seem like such a good idea...what say you :)
