    Carry ?

    I am sure ya'll have gone through this a thousand times but what all do you carry and why?

    I carry a Glock 27. It's small and easy to conceal, it's got Glock reliability, and I like .40S&W better than 9MM.

    Guns, knives, saps, jacks, knucks, lights, pocket sticks...?

    Generally a Spyderco P'kal (defense), Brock HAK(defense/utility), an Inova light (fistload and light), Atwood Triangle(wrench/impact tool), and other things as indicated by the environment.

    Are we doing "Knives and Other Weapons"?

    I'm left handed.

    Primary Defensive Folder:Usually a Spyderco Endura 4 G10 tip down in my left front pocket.
    Why: In case I need a deadly force option and can't access/use my pistol for some reason.

    Backup/Firearm Retention Folder:Usually a Spyderco Native 4 CF tip down in my left front pocket.
    Why: I like to have a knife accessible to each hand. In case I need to convince someone that letting go of my pistol would be in their best interest. In case my strong hand is trapped, injured, or otherwise out of action.

    Small Fixed Blade: Usually a Spyderco Street Beat. Carried edge up horizontally just left of my belt buckle. Intended to be drawn with my right hand but accessible with either.
    Why: In case I can't access my folders. In case I drop something. Generally just in case.

    Flashlight: One of my several SFs, carried for access with my right hand.
    Why: For lighting up the darkness. Suitable for use as an impact weapon.

    Kubaton: Alpha Innovations Stylus in a shirt pocket.
    Why: In case I need to poke someone with a blunt, semi-pointy, non-penetrative object.

    Since you posted this in Defensive Knives & Other Weapons, are you asking about edged weapons, impact weapons, non-lethal alternatives, or what?

    "What all do you carry and why?" opens up a lot of territory.

    Yes, we have gone through this a thousand times (more, probably.)

    The feature is your friend. Please make use of it.

    It really does work.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Kershaw Leek Composite. It is equipped with "Speed Safe" and the composite technology results in a blade with "other worldly" sharpness. Keeps the edge as well. Only a 3" blade but, for me, it is the best EDC knife I have ever owned.

    I have the Rainbow Leek and I agree, the Ken Onion designed Kershaw Leek is the best EDC knife for me too.
    God bless our troops!

    Tarani Masters Model Karambit folder, pre-5.11, made in the USA by Blade-tech. I already liked curved blades, and after getting some training in karambit use, I like them more. I almost always carry a straight blade, too. If my pocket is big enough, I carry a Strider AR, "cuz its big." Once upon a time, in an attempt to rescue a co-worker, I was GLAD to have a large pocket knife, namely that Strider AR, and anything lesser seems inadequate these days. He died, and while he would have died regardless of the size of my knife, the event still left an impression on me.

    One handgun, one OC spray and an LED light. Any type of knife that would be an effective means of protection is basically off limits in NY or I would also have my Spyderco with me.

    Nice to hear as the technology results in a super knife.

    I assume that your screen name "retsupt99" refers to your previous profession. A profession which I think we share. Right?
