    Yeah, Ex, I hadn't considered that. I carry 2 speed loaders and also a Schrade Tough on my belt.

    I noticed a couple of people carry cell phones. A word of advice about those, (Just for info, my day job is as a supervisor for a 911 center), and it's something that should come as a practiced habit for most of the people here... you have to know where you are for those to be effective. Many, many, smaller communities across the country can't get your location from the cell phone call, many of the smaller cell service providers, and many of the older cell phones don't have the capability to provide this to the 911 dispatchers when the call center is able to receive it. And, on top of that, lots of the information that comes into the center has a large "uncertainty" factor, which means it will give a lat/long and say that you are within "100 meters" or more (I see several hundred meters frequently) of the dot on the map. When in an urban area, that isn't much help. The main point is, for the cell phone to be effective, you must know your location! Be sure to make that a part of knowing your surroundings, especially in an unfamiliar place.

    OK, I feel better. Didn't mean to be the lecturer. File it in the back of your head under the "knowing how to use your tools" departement.

    Along with my primary, I carry a Benchmade Griptilian straight blade, at least one reload, and Streamlight NF-2.
    I'll be your Huckleberry!! I have two guns! One for each of you!

    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six!

    Emerson Commander in right front pants pocket; Strider/Buck/Tarani folder in right rear pants pocket, Surefire L2 in left front pants pocket, cell phone in right vest pocket, reading glasses in shirt pocket, a red pen and a black pen, and anywhere from 0 - $2.00 worth of change. Potassium Chloride in a small container in my right cargo pocket.

    Sometimes I carry my Emerson Karambit instead of the Strider/Buck/Tarani and sometimes a small LED light in my right front pocket.

    If I'm going out of town, in addition to the above, I carry a Gladius in a pouch on my belt, a spare mag on my belt, and one or two more in my "bag". Oh, yeah, and cordage/rope of some kind, a few old towels and a half a dozen gun magazines (the reading kind) in the car.

    Hmmm, I need to start carrying a lighter with me again.

    my stuff

    what i carry depends on where i'm going. everyday carry includes: my HAK straight, my emerson karambit, an aluminum kubotan and a tiny fixed blade atnto on my keys, and a spyderco rescue 9.3 mm. in my van, i keep a cold steel frontier hawk, an grizzly bear spray (hey, if it works for bears...).

    if i'm gonna be in the woods, the hawk and spray come with me, along with a mini gurkha from cold steel.

    and, finally, in the city, i include a colt .45 compact, and a microtech h.a.l.o II.

    Wow, jah, that brings back memories. It's been a long time since I've thought of that book. Isn't it going to be a movie soon?

    Been a movie for about a year. :D
    This is a pretty normal EDC for me, plus keys, and I don't always carry the fixed blade.

    OK Tangle, where are the sterile "Handiwipes"? What about the Betadine? Where's your chainsaw? Huh? Huh huh huh? Aren't you prepared?

    Actually -Your list makes me think about what I carry - you're on top of it, it appears.... Thanks for getting my noodle going...

    I carry at least one spare magazine to reload whatever gun I'm carrying. I back all of that up with one or two "primary" flashlights (Surefire 6P w/ a P61 lamp or G2 Nitrolon, or Digilight 1000XB-LE); two or three keychain lights (DigiLight PIS-104 White, Streamlight Key-Mate and one or two cheapie red squeeze lights); one or two knives (Spyderco Endura or other knives I own); a charged cell phone; compass; area folding maps; PDA (with important numbers such as the non-emergency PD/SO numbers, FBI Field Office/resident agencies, local FDLE offices, etc.); a tac vest (if I'm in my g-ride); pens, etc.; money; and cuffs.

    I guess I'm a light weight. I carry Sabre Red strong front, a Kershaw tactical blur weak front, and a blur weak back. I'm still deciding what kind of light I want to pack...
