I watched this and have no real issue except the flashlight. I have a lot of use for a good flashlight. I work nights in a part of town that does not believe in parking lot lights and has half it's street lights burned out.

I carry a Shield and sometimes a spare mag, I ALWAYS have a knife on me... I have a flashlight in the truck if needed.
Personal opinon I never want to be in a situation i didn't bring "enough" gun. todays guns and bullet technology its not hard to hide and carry a 15-17 shot 9mm with good quality ammo and a 17-21 round mag as a back up.
Currently my standard load out on my person is a G19 with a 15 round magazine, a 21 round magpul magazine, and a g26 with a 10 round mag on the ankle. My brief case I keep 3 spare 21 round magazines in my office. On my body I always have 47 rounds plus a gun i can access with either hand. That should be able to deal with just about anything short of a Walking Dead issue. In that case my brief case has a spare 63 rounds to get me home to break out the big guns. I will admit that sometimes I will take an AR SBR or AR pistol to work.
Seems like just YMMV to me.
Definitely a ton of info and opinions out there.
Digest, filter and find what works for you.

Oh, c'mon. Most people know about where they live and where they are going.
My P320 357 goes everywhere. Usually the one mag. It's a C on a SC grip, so 13 rnds. It has a Crimson T laser set to the same 15 yds as the irons.
I'm not going anywhere I need my M4. It's for SHTF.

I just carry what ever I want and don't care if it is approved by others. I use to say I carried my 229 90% of the time. For what ever reason this summer been running a little under the weather since being back from vacation and have backed it down to my PPS 40 with two spare or sometimes one spare mag. Have to drive down to MS Monday to visit the in-laws that moved down there. Going through Memphis, lazy or not the 229 or 226 will either be on me or near me. I'll get back to carrying my 229 regularly again.
Spare flashlight. I've tried to get back into the habit of carrying my small $12 LED Maglite solitaire. Nope its not a lot of light but slips into the pocket as easy as a small pocket knife. Main reason is we have been having a lot of storms and it get really dark down at the church when the lights go out.
I like the .40 .
Thanks for that.
Needs and situations change and we need to reevaluate things now and again.
Arrogance and complacency kill.
Obviously I have my own thoughts as to what my minimum edc is.
Whatever gun I carry I also carry a reload. I also carry a slip joint Case Trapper, a lock blade knife and a chemical deterrent. If I expect I may be out after dark I also carry a small flashlight, even if I only ever use it to find the car keys I dropped in the snow drift.
