I carry several different pistols depending on which I grab, it is either a Taurus Millennium Pro PT-745, 6 + 1 capacity compact .45 caliber in stainless, a Taurus 24/7 Pro CDS .45 caliber 12 + 1 Sub-Compact in stainless or my Smith & Wesson Sigma SW40VE .40 Caliber 14 + 1 capacity in stainless. I also always carry 2 extra mags for whichever gun I am carrying.

At the moment, sitting here in the house, I have a nice folding pocket knife, nail clippers, loose change, lip balm, spare key to 3 trucks and 2 houses, pocket watch, 2 way radio, 4 bottles of essential oils I use for sore muscles, pain reliever, bug repellant and burn fixer. If I go outside, it gets added to, LOL.

I have a 1/2 hour drive to and from work everyday, and I hope I don't ever get caught that far from home if an EMP occurs.

So just in case, I have a 12 pk bottled water, walmart recycle bags, socks, sneakers, swiss army knife, flash light and emergency blanket. Need to add some Mountain House pouches too soon. I have a Swiss Card that has all sorts of goodies in it - pen, pin, scissors, tweesors, file, knife, etc.

Some pepper spray needs to be added too. I'm not comfortable carrying my pistol, too easily taken from me, so I'll save that for home.

My EDC items include:

Either a Glock 22 or 23 in .40 caliber (I carry the 22 on duty with a Streamlight TRL 1 attached) and 23 secured in the patrol car as a BUG or 19 in 9mm (9mm ammo is is cheaper to buy and reload so I can get more training/shooting time in with it) in addition to a Kel-Tec P3AT .380.

Small Gerber lock blade pocket knife for general cutting jobs

Cold Steel Recon 1 folder with the 50/50 Tanto Point (they no longer make the standard blade in the Tanto Point or I'd have gotten one)

Streamlight Nano LED light on my keyring

Streamlight ProTac 2L clipped to my left side pocket


wallet containing ID, DL, SS card, etc.

cell phone

4 GB thumb drive with copies of important documents and various useful articles and ebooks and pics of the inside and outside of my house

Gerber or Leatherman multi-tool depending on whether I'm on or off duty

During the hours of darkness I keep a SO LED light clipped to my watchband

Depending on whether I'm working day (weekends) or evening (currently Mon-Wed) I carry a Polytac LED or Streamlight Stinger XD LED on my duty belts (I have 2 rigs set up), ASP, hinged and chain handcuffs

An issued 5.56mm patrol carbine rides in the trunk of my patrol car as well as an issued "less than lethal" 12 870 clone pump shotgun along with a 5.11 bail out bag containing 3 spare rifle magazines, 2 extra G-22 magazines, several pairs of flex cuffs, energy bars & 4- 10 oz bottles of water and a small trauma kit.

I carry both a "Get Home Bag" and "Stuck at Work Bag" just in case I've got to hoof it back home or am stuck at work (before, during or after a disaster). I can walk home under ideal conditions in less than 9 hours, but carry items I'd need for shelter, food and water purification tabs & filter for 2 days). I keep spare batteries for everything except the cell phone and have a car charger for it in my office, patrol car and all 3 bags.

Thats it, just the cellphone, wallet, gun, and keys. The seecamp .32 is usually either in a pocket holster or an inside the wasteband holster. Hopefully Christmas time will add a nice knife to the list.
