NO ONE I know carries a lighter except smokers. Reply jwm says: August 10, 2017 at 21:42 No field notes? No kitchen cutlery? You don’t operate, bro. Reply OldProfJoe says: August 11, 2017 at 08:32 I know it’s summer and he’s traveling light, BUT… no spare magazine?? How much extra pocket/belt space would another 6 round magazine consume? I think every EDC firearm MUST include at least one reload. Nobody ever lost a gunfight because they had too many rounds. Reply James R says: August 11, 2017 at 10:49 …And nobody ever lost a gunfight because they were carrying a spare full sized rifle. At a point you need to weigh the tiny odds of needing something against the daily inconvenience of tooling up carrying it. Odds of needing a gun are small. odds of needing a spare mag also are almost zero. If I am going to start worrying about odds like that there’s a lot of other things I would worry about first. Reply Joe in San Antonio says: August 11, 2017 at 13:25 I agree, I carry a full first aid kit, extra water and food in my car and have a stash at my house I don’t carry it cause that would be a huge PIA. Reply James R says: August 11, 2017 at 13:41 I do the same. My car is where I carry most of my emergency gear. All I have on my person is phone, keys (with a baby spyderco knife as a keychain), wallet, and a small pocket pistol. In the car is the spare mags, bigger knife, flashlight, first aid kit, etc. OldProfJoe says: August 12, 2017 at 06:51 Really? You’re willing to give up not only the insurance that six extra rounds provide, but also the ability to perform a “tap, rack” malfunction clearance just to save approximately 4 oz of weight that slides effortlessly into a hip pocket in a pocket magazine carrier? While I hope and pray that your SHTF event never happens and/or goes exactly as you expect, I know that Murphy loves to inject the unexpected. As the one armed deputy in Big Whiskey, Wyoming (Unforgiven) said, “I just don’t want to get killed for lack of shooting back!” Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
