    Leave the house - must also have this: make a list

    In addition to your primary weapon of choice, please list, in priority order the other items you think are MOST IMPORTANT to have with you. It would be interesting to know specifics: brand, size, length, etc. for the rest of us.

    For example, my list would read:
    1. Glock 19 or 26
    2. Cell phone
    3. SureFire 6P flashlight
    4. Spyderco Endura clip knife, 4-inch folding blade
    5. Spare magazine

    I wish I could figure out a way to get a decent flashlight that fits on a keychain, as my keys are always going with me...same for a spare magazine: if it would fit on my keychain, I would always have extra ammo with me!

    I would add OC spray to your list.

    I won't get into the relative priorities...all I'll add to your list is a Quik-clot dressing and some latex gloves (in case you need to use the dressing on someone else).

    You do know how to self-administer first aid, right??

    I travel light. 1) Glock 23, SIG M11, or Ruger LCR, depends on mood and purpose. 2) Cell phone. 3) ZT 350.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    Try a Fenix L0D flashlight. It fits on a keychain nicely. Outside of the OC spray, your list looks good.

    I admit, a phone and knife would probably be all I would take, and probably a reload. Of course, i can't carry here so I just take the phone and knife.

    It doesn't go on a keychain but check out the Streamlight stylus flashlights. I always have one clipped onto my pants pocket (knife on right side, light on the left). I think streamlight has a light that does go on a keychain but I don't like to have any more than my keys on the chain.

    Your list is pretty fine, but I should add a GPS. I never leave the house without my GPS.

    I would also check out the 4Sevens flashlights. They are a new company, but their products are outstanding. Their Preon and Preon2 are the size of a pen and are VERY bright. I have their Quark 123 and it's also a very compact light.

    In addition to M60 and reload(s) and cell phone, I carry Spitfire OC spray and a TDI Law Enforcement knife on the weak side. Sometimes I add a Sig P232, G19 or a M36 as a BUG.
