Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day: Me

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.

    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?”

    1. avatar Mmmtacos says:

      Just by the looks of that P7 it appears to be worth at least two ounces of gold anyway.

  2. avatar G says:

    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.

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      . . . 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

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

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      They’re certainly complex internally, but mine has never been finicky. I *love* how the gun shoots. I really do think it’s one of the best “gunfighter’s” pistols ever, and the title of this article I wrote is only slightly hyperbolic: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/01/jeremy-s/heckler-koch-p7-is-the-best-pistol-ever/

    2. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

      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.

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

    Cool stuff, btw. 🙂

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    You seem to spend a lot of time with RF’s couch cushions.

      1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

        (Note to self on the next visit…)

    1. avatar BLoving says:

      Therz gold in them thar cushions…

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        . . . and that’s not all.

  6. avatar Gman says:

    So much for traveling light!

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      It deters pick-pockets if you can’t pry anything out without cutting yourself.

  7. avatar Rimfire says:

    You must be a belt and suspenders guy with that whole outfit

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Nah, that Wilderness Tactical 5-Stitch Instructor belt that you can just see at the very bottom of the photo will support basically anything all by itself haha

  8. avatar Cucamonga Jeff says:

    You had me at P7.. .?

  9. avatar strych9 says:

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

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

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Just keeping up with the EDC Joneses who everyday carry so much badass sh*t.

      …a more realistic one was posted a long time ago HERE. The comments on that sort of sum up why I chose to post it and, for that matter, why I posted this one 😛

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        *snicker*

        With that kitchen blade I thought maybe you’d joined up with the Yakuza.

        1. avatar Joe R. says:

          Or pirates.

          AAARRRRGGG!!!!

  10. avatar Michael says:

    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…

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      I also carry a set of free weights for working out on the go, but couldn’t put them on my glass-topped desk for the photo, for obvious reasons.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        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.

  11. avatar rockhopper says:

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

    Nicely done!

    1. avatar Dave says:

      .9mm…I could carry ten of those

  12. avatar Jason says:

    Even for the size of that blunt you’re carrying, vice grips are roach clip overkill

  13. avatar The Gray Poseur says:

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

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      I don’t have a douche flute. I think you’re probably looking at the Kel-Tec flashlight.

      1. avatar Joe R. says:

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHH

      2. avatar Ing says:

        It’s always a good day when a new term makes its way into my vocabulary. Thank you, good sir.

        LOL*snort*LOL

      3. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

        “Douche flute”
        OMG, I snorted a snot rocket right on my iPad.

  14. avatar J says:

    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…

  15. avatar NineShooter says:

    Love the Glock key fob, but WHERE did you get the tiny Glock spare mag key fob?

    WANT!!!

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      It’s from Mec-Gar. But I think it’s a mini Beretta 92 or CZ 75 mag or something 😉

      1. avatar NineShooter says:

        Oh.

        [Emily Litella voice] Never mind. [/voice]

        🙂

  16. avatar MouseGun says:

    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?

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      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?

    1. avatar Swarf says:

      I’m guessing the single MRE is just in case you’ve killed *all* of the animals with the rest of your loadout.

    2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Truck? Everyday Carry is about your carry load. You know, a “pocket dump.” Don’t get me started on my truck 😛

  17. avatar Hoyden says:

    Case hardened–stock or aftermarket? That’s a looker.

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Click the link for the deets.

    2. avatar Boba Fett says:

      Yeah, that thing’s beautiful.

  18. avatar Prm says:

    So most important question, what cigar is that? I can’t read it.

    1. avatar DC Hannah says:

      That’s a Bobalu Cigar Co Sun Grown Habano, made right there in Austin!

      1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

        Exactly correct! If I’m honest, the cigars can be a little bit hit-or-miss there, but their “Red Label” Sun Grown are awesome and really affordable. They had a flash sale for $3.50 a pop a few weeks ago, so I re-stocked. But even at normal prices, depending on size, you can get ’em for around $5 and they’re really a very good, enjoyable stick.

      2. avatar Prm says:

        Thanks!! So are they good?

    2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      BTW if you click the photo it’ll open up full-size.

  19. avatar Accur81 says:

    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.

  20. avatar Hooty says:

    Thank you so much for this post. Every once in a while we need an ironic pocket dump. XD

  21. Fuck you guys. I submitted a funny (in my mind) pocket dump months ago just to have Dan say TTAG doesn’t accept pocket dump submissions.

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Dan’s correct; we don’t do these directly. EDC pocket dump posts have to be on Everyday Carry (see: http://everydaycarry.com/posts/23109/am-i-doing-this-right). Upload it there and link us to it.

  22. avatar Geoff PR says:

    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!!!

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      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.

      …the server was moved over the weekend. Still working out the kinks. Some will likely clear up when you restart your computer or browser or clear your cache and/or the cookies for the TTAG site, or log out and back in if you’re logged in, etc…

  23. avatar Anonymous says:

    Nice. The only H&K I ever liked.

    Nice kitchen knife.

  24. avatar Spartan357 says:

    what….no field notes? – cant be a serious post

  25. avatar DrewN says:

    The Henckles is weak sauce. Their stamped knives are actually better that their forged. For a reasonably priced, mass produced chef’s this is the best IMO: http://www.gotknife.com/mac-knives-ultimate-9-chef-sbk-95/ .

  26. avatar Boba Fett says:

    Where’s your rubber chicken? I don’t see a rubber chicken.

  27. avatar Dave says:

    Guess this is a joke, but it’s not very funny.

  28. avatar IdahoBoy says:

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

  29. avatar EJQ says:

    Dam! How do you keep your pants on? I don’t think a belt and suspenders would cut it.

  30. avatar MyName says:

    Dat HK tho …
