    EDC

    What do you guys carry in addition to your gun? Phone wallet and keys are the basics. Light, knife, multi tool, mini pry bar, spare mags. Or just the basics and your gun?

    Gun, spare mags, folder, light, mobile, and keys in my pockets. Many more items in the GHB that stays in my trunk. It goes in in the morning and its removed when returning home in PM.

    I wear a business suit. The boss would not be happy if I showed up dressed like Rambo. What I have is what is needed for the most likely scenario.

    This is what I have on my person, every day, no matter the circumstance. I sometimes need to don a suit in which case a heavier item like the multitool (which isn't kind to light wool pants) will go into the brief case.

    I'm about to add a small pocket canister of pepper spray to this daily load out. It doesn't bother me to carry any of this daily, and I don't look any different from anyone else on the street. Plus, I've been able to be very helpful to others in the world on more than a few occasions with the tool, flashlight, etc. - which, in my opinion, makes the loadout worth its weight.

    The only items that change are the gun (switched for another gun) and the watch (for another watch).

    I wear a suit daily also. I carry a pocket folder, a flashlight, wallet, badge/ID carrier, car and office/house keys, with a hand cuff key on both sets. A G23 in my HBE Com III. I have a "work bag" with tools of my trade and stuff needed on a regular basis that rides in my truck along with a GHB.

    At the risk of upsetting some people, I don't carry spare ammo and don't see the need for it. Statistically, anything you carry instead of spare ammo is more likely to be useful than the ammo. I've never heard of a single situation in which a private citizen used a concealed firearm for self-defense and needed to reload. Spare ammo is statistically useless.

    Do want! How durable is the design? Does it stand up to regular use?
