What's your EDC?

The place for general talk about gun, shooting, loading, camping, survival, and preparedness related tools and gear, as well as gear technology discussion, gear reviews, and gear specific "range reports" (all other types of gear should be on the back porch).

What's your EDC?

Post by Weetabix » Fri Sep 21, 2018 2:25 pm

I don't remember seeing one of these, though, maybe we used to do "what's in you pockets". Anyway, what do you carry on your person every day?

Here's my order of precedence of EDC from most important to least:
1. Gun
2. Victorinox Alox Cadet
3. Watch
-----------now I'm ready to watch Netflix
4. Kershaw folder
5. Wallet
-----------can leave home now if I'm not driving
6. Keys
-----------short trip to the store
7. Pen
8. Moleskine notebook - ~3x5, soft cover - Cahier?
-----------ready for the world

There's more in my daypack.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

Knife, wallet, phone, watch, keys. My laptop bag has a SAC, pens and flashlights.

Tried to post a pic but it’s too big even cropped by half. What’s the limit these days?

SAK Alox Pioneer X
Rohrbaugh 9s, or a J frame - sometimes a Beretta Tomcat.
Rite in Rain pocket notebook in a gfeller passport cover (most useful thing I own)
Pentell graphgear 1000 in .9mm with 2B lead
flip phone
car key/house key/work key (Had the locksmith set everything up, so I only need 2 master keys, plus a car key.)
Money clip
Andrews leather card holder (ostrich leg. Holds up well.)

I have a small Frost River bag, which holds macbook, cables, sunglasses, FN57+reload, and my work journal.

Benchmade, or small Kershaw folder for places that are less “knife friendly”.
Wallet.
Samsung S9 phone.
Keys -house and car keys are together, truck is on its own key ring so I’m not hanging a lot of weight on the ignition (car is a push-button start with a fob)
ThruNite Ti3 - with .04/12/120 lumen modes, this is probably the most useful piece of kit I’ve recently acquired. Having more light from a single AAA battery than I got out of my dual-CR123A Surefire from the Iraq deployment a decade ago, it’s really, really handy.

Being currently stationed in CA, my AZ permit isn’t accepted. I am checking with one of the local CCW trainers about whether he’s had any success with military using a CA ID (not a driver’s license, since I’m not a ‘resident’, I just reside here...). The whole ‘show good cause’ thing is apparently the biggest hurdle, but Solano County is supposed to be a better than average place for getting a CA permit.

I do that, too. Each car has its key and a house key. My regular keys are house, daily driver, office, and storage lock key (so the kids won't lose ALL of them).
