    What all do you have on you at any give time?

    What other SD items do you carry in addition to you primary carry? Some people, thats all they carry... others are armed to the teeth. Personally I have my primary carry, BUG and an extra mag.

    Generally, I have one gun, one or two spare mags, two knives, and a Surefire L1.

    My load varies, but from time to time there may be a BUG in the items as well, but generally speaking I'm a one gun guy.

    Everything except the stun gun. Two guns, extra mag for each, three pocket knives, one sheath knife, one hideaway knife, three flashlights (minimum), OC, and metal pen. Armed to the teeth, and beyond, and I prefer to be like that.

    I most often have, aside from my EDC, at least one spare magizine and a knife. A flashlight is always in, at the very least, the vehicle I'm driving if not on me.

    If I want carry any more than that then I'd need my duty belt.

    I have the most dangerous weapon- my mind. I also have situational awareness along with two big guns, also known as my right and left arms.

    I always have a folding knife and unless at work my 1911 and one spare magazine. A SureFire usually tucked in my rear pocket completes my daily carry.

    Even if I am not carrying my gun, I am carrying my flashlight, knife, and usually a mag. I also "carry" my Judo.

    I found it a little difficult to answer because of the way the question was worded -- I don't have all of these items with me at every moment, but these are the items I carry at times.

    Colt Officer's 1911 + spare mag (14 rounds total), except at work
    Kahr PM40 + spare mag (12 rounds total), "sensitive environments"
    Spyderco Delica, always unless prohibited by law
    Kubotan, always unless prohibited by law
    Coast TacLite, out any time after dark, and on nightstand

    I always have a 5-cell maglite within easy reach in the truck, and at home have various weapons available.

    And the most important self-defense tool I carry between my ears!

    My "out and about" carry is my primary gun, 2 spare mags, backup gun, knife, flashlight, and rescue knife clipped on pockets, and spare knife, OC/CS Mace, flashlight, radio, and other small items in my Maxpedition bag. The Maxpedition bag never really changes unless it's to remove my spare mags, knife, and OC because of prohibitions (court, flying, etc.)

    Everything except OTC Spray and Taser/Stun Gun . . . my BUG, spare mags and flashlight are in my Bail Out Bag (which has three extra knives, a pocket tool kit, binoculars, a compass, sharpening stuff and a silicone rag too) but the Bail Out Bag is with me all the time. Otherwise I am carrying a knife and a primary handgun on my body all the time ;)

    primary and spare mags. Sometimes the p3at as a bug in a pocket holster. Always a good pocket knife(tactical assisted open folder) Sometimes a surefire if I know im going to be out late. Always have my cell phone on or near me 24-7.

    Also always have my shtf kit at home and in car. Includes med kit, longgun(870 at home, 30-30 in trunk) extra ammo(At least a box of ammo for carry and longgun)spare pocket knives, large d-cell maglite, batteries and spare cash. Also keep a spare change of clothes in trunk.(The one item that i've used the most so far is the change of clothes.)

    I carry 1 gun. If it's one of my revolvers I carry 1 speedstrip. If it's one of my autoloaders I carry 1 extra magazine. I usually carry a Spyderco Endura and, of course, my cell phone.

    I always have my primary gun, flashlight, and at least 3 knives. I also have my keys on a clip and chain which can be used as a flail. If worse case senario I can also wave my dirty hankey.
