Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day: RFID Wallet? [MUSIC]

Jeff's everydaycarry.com pocket dump

Jeff’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump features a Gen4 GLOCK 27 and a Dango Dapper EDC Wallet. It’s U.S.-made out of genuine leather and CNC aluminum. Genuine leather. That reminds me of a song . . .

That’s one of my all-time favorite “feel good” songs. Be thankful I didn’t link to Hakuna Mutata. Oh, what the Hell . . .

Believe it or not, I’m bringing Mel Torme and Timon to this party to make a serious point.

The antis consider gun toters emotionally volatile, paranoid, Death Wish-watching, trigger-happy wannabes. Even more than the gun, the RFID wallet reflects that paranoia, no?

“The problem isn’t that these products don’t work,” csonline.com opines, “it’s that they’re a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist in the real world. RFID-related crime isn’t only very unlikely, it’s non-existent.”

Does Jeff RFID-blocking wallet reveal an element of truth to the antis’ claim that EDC types are, shall we say, unnecessarily wary?

Should the guy with the surrey with the fringe on the top be packing heat? Are Timon and Pumba doing children a disservice by singing the praises of condition white?

Just wonderin’ . . .

    An RFID wallet is much more a statement of fashion than function. I suspect that people that carry those things do so far more to impress someone then to protect themselves. Unlike a concealed Glock that no one sees, they can show off their fancy wallet.

    I was recently in the market for a new wallet. I’m not a fashionista; I don’t change wallets on the regular, nor do I care about “the latest.” It had simply been about 15 years, and it was time for a new one.

    My point in that is this: Seeing as I’m clearly going to use it for a while, I did a bit of shopping before I found one I liked. I found along the way that virtually every wallet I touched specifically mentioned having an “anti-RFID” layer in the lining somewhere. Not a feature I was looking for, nor cared about, but it was on almost all of them nonetheless.

    I suppose that’s different than having (and advertising the possession of) an RFID wallet, as here.

    Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.
    And Just having somebody say RFID crime is non-existent doesn’t mean I’d want to find out they were wrong by losing my money.
    So, I carry and RFID-blocking wallet that has been tested to show it actually works. And since I pull that much more in public, as opposed to the gat, it may as well look stylish at the same time.

    ” csonline.com opines,”??
    That they THINK that RFID crime is non-existant is only their OPINION(that’s what “opines means), but, like most of the MSM, they are incorrect. Nobody has ever been caught driving down a street scanning everone’s cards from out side, because that is NOT POSSIBLE. One cannot be caught and arrested for driving by a house, not even in Amerika’s current police state. And then they use those card numbers and personal info to charge goods online, or sell it to shysters who convert it to cash in a number of ways.
    I guess csonline has never heard of identity theft as the fastest growing crime.
    Not surprising that the media doesn’t even pay attention to itself. Typical. Just SOP. The MSM is so bad, even THEY don’t listen to them.

    As someone who got a Poli Sci degree from a rather nice, private university it constantly amazes me how many people who hold a PhD in the subject appear to have never bothered to read the Constitution or seriously study it.

    Sure, opinions on the topics vary quite a bit but to suggest that part of the Constitution’s preamble is an open invite for gun control is absurd to the point of being laughable. It defies logic, assumes that parts of the document overrule other parts and requires that one not bother to read the rest of the document.

    Ah well, I had a number of professors like this. Some would say they’re annoying and bothersome. I would say they’re boring but somewhat dangerous to their students.

    I have been a fan of the Lion King movie for a long time. Here is another version of Hakuna that you might enjoy:

    Dont need an anti RFID wallet.

    I keep my cards inside my tinfoil hat.

    No worries.

    They have their place in one respect –

    Credit cards provide *some* insulation from fraud. Charges can be contested, etc.

    Debit cards have substantially less protection, IE, if someone scans your card and vacuums you cash, it can be “Too bad, so sad”, as my Chinese girlfriend from years back would say…

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      This is why I don’t carry, or have any debit cards. With credit cards you can contest a sale that went bad, as I have. With debit card sales, you are usually S.O.L.

    None of the sellers of these things that I’ve contacted can tell me just how much their RFID wallet reduces electromagnetic signals in and out of their wallet. They should be able to give a number, in decibels. No company that I’ve found on the internet (so far) has been able to tell me. Because they don’t know, I don’t consider them to be serious security companies.

    I put my RFID tabs IN my wallet so I can access my parking garage and office.

    Why would I want to block that?
