What’s this Everyday Carry thing? Am I doing this right? I have a lot of pockets. Some items of note: the little Boker Gnome, the color case hardened HK P7, the color case hardened NAA Mini Revolver, the Hogue EX-02, the Kel-Tec CL-43 flashlight, the Peltor Tactical 500 bluetooth electronic muffs, the upgraded tourniquet, the Kestrel DROP 2, and the Premier Body Armor plates and carrier (destructive testing review pending). Plus an ounce of gold that I found in RF’s couch cushions.

  1. I would take that P7 over the ounce of Gold!! What a beauty.

    “Is that a metric shit-ton of crap in your pockets or are you just happy to see me?”

  2. Lmao is that condom and a kitchen knife lol? Your missing the most essential 2 things though. Fields notes and a tactical pen. If you had those you might actually need that condom.

    • . . . a small-sh bottle of Louisiana hot sauce, and some baby wipes, a cleaning kit, PRC 68 “firefly”, a bottle of water and a few power bars. ; D

  3. P7 has always intrigued me. I hear that owning one is kind of a labor of love; they’re complex, finicky beasts. Thoughts?

    • For the owner who doesn’t do their own detail strip & clean, the P7 is fine – it’s easier to field strip than a Glock. To remove the striker, you need a spanner wrench on earlier models, and it is quite easy when you have the correct tool. The -13 model allows the striker to be pulled without a tool.

      Once you start to detail strip & disassemble it beyond the above, the P7’s complexity overpowers most people who aren’t gunsmiths.

  4. I don’t think you actually carry this, I think you just wanted to show off your cool stuff. :p

    Cool stuff, btw. 🙂

  5. Kitchen knife (sheath?), vice grips, three smaller blades plus armor.

    I’m guessing this is a joke. Right, Jeremy?

  6. that made my day….I see guys all the time bragging about all their crap and then when we go out in the field….they can’t wait to ditch it all because it weighs too much…

      • You’re doing it wrong then. Real workout aficionados bolt a Bowflex on the back of their truck or on a trailer they tow behind their car.

  7. Awesome. Especially love the NY reload, but would question the usefulness of .9mm for a second gat.

    Nicely done!

  8. What’s with the weird vaping obsession? Seriously? Sucking on a small tube of vapor? Some sort of oral fixation/compulsion.

  9. Sabatiers make for deadly weapons. The original bowie knives and gaucho criollos looked pretty much exactly like “kitchen knives”……..if i ever took a fancy to carrying a big knife for defensive purposes, a sabatier would get the first look…just a pain in the ass getting custom sheaths made for the damn things…

  10. I don’t know if this is a joke or not, but I’ve never understood the five people on earth who carry P7s. Why carry something rare and expensive that, when used in a DGU, could be confiscated from you, with a chance of never seeing it again?

    • I don’t buy into that argument at all. If it’s about saving my life or the life of another, I’m not going to choose the cheapest gun possible just in case I’m in a shooting that’s deemed questionable enough to have my firearm confiscated. If it is, and I find myself on trial, whether or not I get my pistol back is the last thing in the world I give a sh*t about, and whether it’s a $500 pistol or an $800 pistol or a $1,400 pistol doesn’t make any damn difference whatsoever. I will carry the gun that I shoot the best, am the most comfortable with, and feel is the most reliable, period, because if it saves my life when a gun I don’t shoot as well may not have, any extra cost is worth it to an infinite degree. Loss of a few hundred bucks or even a thousand bucks vs. a lesser gun, in the extraordinarily unlikely event that it’s confiscated, doesn’t make the considerations list AT ALL.

      BTW: this should not be interpreted as to suggest I think expensive guns are better. Again, I’d simply advise carrying the reliable gun that you shoot the best. Price point is not a factor in that at all.

      BTW #2: if I’m involved in some sort of shooting that makes the news, I don’t want a Kel-Tec with a strap of bicycle tire inner tube around the grip to be the gun that’s pictured in every article under my mug shot. I’d gladly pay a thousand bucks to have America see this classy P7 instead! 🙂

      BTW #3: I purchased my P7 for $600. How ’bout them apples?

  11. That’s some cool shiz-nit! I like the color case hardening and the gold bar. Spot prices on gold and silver went down recently and I bought a bunch of silver bullion. I find precious metals as interesting as ordnance grade steel.

  12. Was that your NAA mini that was color-case hardened, the last I recall, the one NAA sells is carbon steel, not stainless.

    And NAA wants $400 for theirs, even tho it looks serious cool. After spending four hundred clams on a NAA mini, I’d hate to have to relegate it to safe queen and BBQ belt-buckle status.

    A quickie review on it would be nice, especially if Dan can shoot a bunch of ultra hi-res pics of it…

    EDIT – PLEASE FIX the ‘required field’ bug in the code, please!!!

    • It’s a different one. You can’t CCH stainless. I gifted my Mini to someone after picking up the CCH one which, yes, is carbon steel. Honestly, I’d stick with the stainless one. Much more useful without worries for the longevity of the finish. If you get a CCH one then, yeah, it’s well-suited for keeping in a display box in your office or on the wall or something, or wearing in a belt buckle to BBQs like you said. Or range use, sure, but not typical carry use.

  13. You forgot one of those small inflatable camping kitchen sinks. Otherwise, you have everything except the kitchen sink.
