Michael, who’s a firefighter, opts for the reliable, concealable Springfield XD(M). See what else he’s chosen at Everyday Carry . . .
He must have very big Pockets LOL.
An XDM 4.5 with a light. Pretty big but 19+1 of 9mm means you’re ready for anything short of Isis.
Not completely prepared for a shooting until you get body armor. Do y’all know about a good brand? The best one I could find in my area (Gainesville, FL) is Rhino Armor: http://www.thebestbodyarmor.com
I purchased Level II armor online through the Galls website. I frequently wear it teaching or at the range. Under a sweatshirt no one can tell. Some additional blunt trauma protection on my motorcycle as well.
Galls as I recall has its house branded armor priced below that of some of the major national brands but it’s manufactured by a major company – can’t recall right this second but I believe it might have been Point Blank.
While not technically in my “pocket”, I find my XDM easy to conceal. I am a big boy though which definitely widens my choices for EDC..
Love my XDM 3.8 compact in 45 for concealment. Great pistol.
OTF knives like that always feel like cheap toys in my hand. I’m never 100% trustful of a liner-lock pocket knife, much less one of those.
They make for fun letter openers though.
