Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day: Joe


Joe’s office is jeans casual. That’s what lets him tote the not insubstantial SIG P320 along with the ZT0350. We’re guessing he cinches the whole thing up with a sturdy belt, too. See the rest of his Everyday Carry gear below . . .

    Glad to see more realistic pocket dumps these days.

    1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      What’s “realistic” is subjective.

      I carry two knifes, flash light, and multi tool, everyday, at minimum. I work with my hands and travel frequently (170K miles on my truck in less than four years), so that is realistic for me.

      For a desk jockey, I can see how my EDC would be ridiculous.

      1. avatar J. Tiesto says:

        I imagine compared to most…desk jockeys…that’s one more knife than normal, but still nowhere near the ridiculous level that some of the past pocket dumps have been. A lot of these come off as “Hey, check out my neat stuff that I pretend to lug around with me.”

        1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

          Most people don’t carry half of what is pictured, let alone the gun.

          I don’t think it’s fair to project what’s “realistic” or not, especially when some think we are being unrealistic by carrying a gun.

    I have that knife. Fits the paw well. OMG the holster as well.

  3. avatar Alphonse says:

    Hmmm, expense knife & gun, moderately priced other stuff. Priorities I guess.

    1. avatar Joe says:

      The P320 was not too bad. I got it at my local gun shop for $450 last year, and another $40 for the subcompact frame.

      The knife was spendy, but I use it more than any of my other gear and the quality is fantastic.

      1. avatar younggun21 says:

        Love the P320, haven’t made the jump to get the subcompact frame. How much difference does it make for carry?

        1. avatar Joe says:

          The biggest difference is in the grip length. It hides well under a fleece or untucked heavy shirt, but I’ll probably be switching to something smaller for summer carry.

          There are pros and cons to the subcompact. The pros are higher capacity, same great trigger, no edges to snag or poke you, night sights.
          However, it is heavier and doesn’t feel as balanced as smaller pistols. The top-heavy feeling evens out with a loaded magazine, and it’s very easy to handle when firing. The compact and carry sizes are much more ergonomic though.

        2. avatar younggun21 says:

          Yeah I already have the compact, just was looking into if It would be worth it for ease of carry to purchase the subcompact frame. That might also entail new holsters as well though since the trigger guard area is going to be altered.

      2. avatar Josh in TN says:

        What position do you carry your 320 in? I appendix carry my compact and it hides under anything but a tight-ish t-shirt. I was hoping the subcompact frame would help with that. Also a big fan of the ZT.

        1. avatar Joe says:

          I carry it at the 5 o clock position. With a good tight belt, the smaller grip hugs my lower back and doesn’t print. I think it would definitely help. In addition to shorter, the grip is also thinner. I think it’s worth a $40 investment.

          Also, a big recommendation are Talon grips. The polymer frame feels too slippery to me, especially on the subcompact where you can’t get a full purchase (think 2.5 fingers for medium hands). They make the pistol feel much more secure in your hand.

      3. avatar Alphonse says:

        Ah, OK, interesting, I just saw a SIG and assumed expensive.

        1. avatar Joe says:

          If you get a chance, you should check one out. I think SIG hit this out of the park. It does everything a GLOCK 19 does, and then more. It comes with factory night sights, an excellent trigger (2nd only to Walther PPQ IMO), more ergonomic grip (admittedly subjective), and the ability to easily scale up or down in size with the different frames. To top it off, SIG then went and priced it lower than a Gen 4 GLOCK 19.

    2. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      The blade is a little pricey, but the 320 is on par with Glock and M&P pricing.

    3. avatar Hannibal says:

      What difference does an expensive wallet make?

  4. avatar Accur81 says:

    I really like ZT knives. I have the larger version the 300 or 301, I think, in tiger stripe. Saw it in NCIS and looked into it. I usually don’t EDC it because it’s a bit too large and heavy.

    1. avatar Joe says:

      Agreed. I went from carrying the Spyderco Tenacious to this ZT. The Spyderco was a great knife and I still carry it from time to time, but the ZT is a whole different class. For me, I don’t mind the extra weight, when it’s clipped in my pocket I don’t even notice it’s there.

      The thing I love most is the Speedsafe. I’ll never go back to manual opening knives. It’s just so much handier.

  5. avatar Hannibal says:

    Nice looking blade.

    This is about equivalent to my EDC, plus my keys and glasses.

  8. avatar Robert W says:

    Only thing I would say is that I would highly recommend a multi-tool. I’m an engineer, and sit at a desk for 95% of my work, but I find myself using my Leatherman Wave daily, over and above just using the knife on it.

    Other than that, it’s basically what I carry on the daily, except the pistol, stupid California…
