    Probably a stupid question, as I am new to this site and only been CC for a few months. I notice lots of you carry a highpowered mini flashlight. Clue me in, I may need to be doing the same. BTW, Glock 27 Serpa OWB at 4:00, or a Ruger 380 LCP in pocket holster by Blackhawk.

    Thanks in advance.

    OK, I gotta ask... Why people consider a cell phone, wallet, keys, etc as part of their "CCW gear"?

    Even if I wasnt concealed carrying, I'd still have my cell/keys/wallet with me anyway. Therefore, its not part of my "gear". I wear boxer shorts and shoes while carrying too, but I dont consider them part of my gear either. Know what I mean?

    Who knows. It certainly cant hurt, however I find it unnecessary. Same goes for a pocket knife, pepperspray, and gazillions of extra mags. I'm sure that stuff could be handy on occasion, but I dont like carrying a Batman belt of gizmos and gadgets all the time.

    I like having a flash light, Power outage, signaling cars if there is a wreck at an intersection, etc. but then again I always carry 1 or 2 sharpy markers with me... they always come in handy LOL

    Pepper spray would be one level in progression to DF where it is not lethal it could be used in cases where lethal force was not warranted.

    Currently I tote around the Wilson or Kimber compact in a Haugen "wedge" holster, hung on a Wilderness instructor's belt at 10:30. In my pockets are a Surefire E1L, wallet, albuterol, keys, spare mag, and cell phone.

    No pics right now, but:
    G17 with Hogue grips in a black Bianchi Carry-Lok belt-slide holster
    Gerber 06 mil-issue (when in military uniform only- stupid MO laws). Really need to get the FAST (non- auto) version for edc.
    CRKT M-16 in civvies
    Pelican M6 LED tactical light
    Spare leather mag pouch (sometimes)

    Sometimes I carry the S&W in a nylon Uncle Mikes. But usually it's in a paddle holster I mounted with screws to the seat in my vehicle, as it's easier to get to when I'm driving than whatever's tucked in my pants or on my belt. It gets locked in the underseat steel safe when I go in somewhere.

    Someone asked about why carry a flashlight?
    We had them when I was contractor, as a cop, and in Iraq. Besides a tiny powerful flashlight being ridiculously useful in general, they come in handy for briefly blinding your target and simultaneously identifying your target. It can be useful in testimony to be able to affirm that you positively identified your target as a hostile before firing. I keep the flashlight by my bed for the same reason should there be a hostile intruder, or just some stupid drunk PFC who found the wrong door at 2 am.

    The thread asked what we carry every day. I don't carry my boxer shorts or shoes, I wear them. The stuff in the pic I posted is the stuff I pick up after I've gotten dressed. It is, therefore, the stuff I carry every day. EDC. At least, that's my take on your question.

    The OP asked about EDC gear, not CCW gear.

    A good light is amazingly useful whether you carry a gun or not. Most citizen involved shootings occur in low light conditions. You need to be able to identify your target.

    I use my light and a knife everyday, often multiple times a day. In 15 years of carrying a pistol, I've never used it. I'm not going to stop carrying one because I don't use it everyday. 2 reloads is hardly a gazillion. 2 reloads, a knife or 5, and a light, does not a Batman belt make. I'm with you on the OC spray.

    if you carry gun, you should carry a phone, a light, and a knife, as well. i carry two knives, one is strictly for SD, the other is more multi-purpose. as was said before, many SD situations happen in low-light settings; carrying a light is logical. a phone is a must; if you're involved in a SD shooting, you need to be the one to call the police first.

    other stuff, like impact weapons and OC spray are extraneous, in my opinion. i carry OC on my car keys, but i don't see myself using it, except on the occasional aggressive stray dog. and any hard, cylindrical object, like my pen, can be used as an impact weapon.

    Fair enough. Maybe the types of environments that we frequent are different. I just rarely (if ever) find myself in zero-light situations.

    In my mind, if there isn't enough ambient light with which to identify your target, there isn't enough light to identify the target as a threat to begin with.
