    Nice work @Mike

    My man. @Mike 👊🏼👊🏼

    Interesting holster choice. I’m gonna find one of those and try it out. Never been a fan of the kydex ones.

  • Steve's avatar

    Good stuff @Mike

  • Mike's avatar

    @Chris thank you sir. And yes.....you do need that knife👍

  • Mike's avatar

    @Brad thanks boss🤣👊

  • Mike's avatar

    @Donovan 👊. You’ll love it. We beat the hell out of these things and I’m only on my 2nd one in 5 years. And I mean we’re brutal to them. Worth every penny.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Steve thanks man.

  • Brian's avatar

    Great write up. @Mike My edc list is more similar to yours than I expected. I don’t have any of the exact things on this list but all very similar.

  • Jacob's avatar

    Great recommendations @Mike and I appreciate your reasoning with each. I’m going to go a step deeper on the knife, what’s your go-to sharpener?

  • Jacob's avatar

    @Donovan I have a similar holster that you can try if it will fit your pistol. I bought and tried a lot before settling on the ones I did, so it’ll save you some time. Mine is a Remora.

    @Jacob Yee 👊🏼

  • Mike's avatar

    @Brian great minds think alike, but come in different shapes and sizes, lol. 👊

  • Mike's avatar

    @Jacob used correctly, this can’t be beat. The power sharpener is crazy quick and effective. In the field, the ceramic collapsible rod is convenient to carry and touches up your edges just fine.

    Interesting read man, very well put together

  • Ethan's avatar

    Man I’ve got the clip draw on my 43 and I love it, no holster for me!

  • Ian's avatar

    This just makes me jealous lol. I’m a Canadian so I can’t really carry any of this daily. Keys wallet and cellphone and I’m all set.

  • Brad's avatar

    VP9 in a custom kydex holster with a backup magazine weak side in a Mag carrier (I’m a big dude and conceal that handgun easily in jeans and a T-Shirt). Kershaw folder. Surefire light. Keys, wallet, cellphone, can of dip...

  • Coyote's avatar

    What’s my everyday carry set up look like? It looks like this.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ferg 👊

  • Mike's avatar

    @Ian I can’t imagine man...hope I never have to find out what that’s like.

  • Jay's avatar

    Nice, I carry a similar set up, either a glock 43 or a smith and wesson 342 pd . I also carry a leatherman skeletool and either a speed strip or an extra mag. I try to keep basic medical supplies close at hand as well. Always have my streamlight protect too

  • Barry's avatar

    I don’t like leaving the house without my Sig P938 in a Comfortac ankle holster!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jacob agree with @Mike

  • GoWild's avatar

    Nice work @Mike 👍

  • Zack's avatar

    Great article @Mike 🔥

  • Mike's avatar

    @Zack thanks Mr. President 👊

  • Robinson's avatar

    @Ian you can carry a flashlight?

  • Ian's avatar

    @Robinson that’s what my cellphone is for lol

  • Robinson's avatar

    @Ian surely you can carry an actual flashlight. If so you’d be surprised how well 1000 lumens can defend you, plus it’s a decent force multiplier. You also may be able to use a tactical pen

  • Matt's avatar

    @Mike Definitely going to have to try out the sticky holster. Currently using a hybrid IWB and it’s extremely comfortable with the leather backing but the kydex front is hard on my jeans. Lol

  • Ian's avatar

    @Robinson now that you have me thinking about it I do keep the intrinsically safe streamlights I get from work in several places. I’ve just never even considered keeping one for “protection”.

  • T.J.'s avatar

    Great read. @Mike thank you for your Patriotism and you service. Much respect sir.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Matt it definitely meets all my needs👍

  • Mike's avatar

    @T.J. thank you sir, much appreciated 👊

  • Bruce's avatar

    Mike thank you so so so much to your service to this country. It’s people like you that gave us our freedom and has allowed us to keep it. Not enough credit is given to you guys. Thank you so much. God bless you and God bless America.

  • Mike's avatar

    @Bruce thank you sir👊🇺🇸

  • Colleen (DaDuckLady)'s avatar

    @Mike love it!!! And thank you for your service!

  • Mike's avatar

    @Colleen (DaDuckLady) Donohue thank you ma’am, appreciate that👊🇺🇸

  • GoWild's avatar

    I love this hoodie. It’s great for turkey season!

  • GoWild's avatar

    I recommend this one!

  • William's avatar

    It depends on what I'm doing or where I'm going that decides what I carry from the Springfield 45 1911, Glock 23 or one of my pocket guns. I always carry concealed and never open just preference. I'm not dinging the open carry folks. I just don't want to be the bad guys first target. Great article and being a veteran myself I can appreciate all your sacrifice s. GOD BLESS AMERICA
