Everyday Pocket Dump of the Day: Is Black the New Black?

Syluxguy’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump is “a work in progress.” It’s also mostly black. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Black is discreet. Black is slimming. Black is operator AF. But black is also boring. In fact . . .

black is so done. Why not other colors for guns, mags, holsters, wallets, knives and various carry clobber?

As a red – green color blind human (who identifies as male), I wouldn’t mind carrying a pink gun. And I would love to carry a blue gun. Especially as gun people consider blue guns inert.

What’s up with all this black? Who died? Can we get over it already? Or is it still mourning in America? Anyway, here’s Everyday Carry’s black logo.

    What about the Waco Car photo?

    Black plastic doesnt show dirt and scratches as much as lighter colors.

    Ceracote just wears off and looks cheap, so color the plastic if you want a different color.

      The problem with the car photo is that there is no Escape- ing Waco.

      I admit it is a LONG way to go to make a semi outdated play on words but there you have it.

    I like black. I like FDE, too, but it usually costs more and I have trouble justifying more money for a color.

    …You want a gun that intentionally makes people think it’s not a real gun…?

    You must love those Glocks painted like Nintendo Zappers and ARs painted like Nerf guns

    I have an orange holster for one of my carry guns, but only really because I got the orange kydex on clearance. Don’t get my wrong, I really like orange and it’s neat to have something a little different, but for an IWB holster that, ideally, doesn’t get seen by anyone but me, it’s kind of pointless.

    I feel like gun guys, for the most part, are a pragmatic bunch who just don’t see the prudence in colorful, attention-attracting gear. Black is utilitarian.

    The frame of the gun is grey…

    It was good enough for Adam Cartwright, it’s good enough for me by GAWD!!

  8. avatar Barnbwt says:

    Everything must be black, like the storm of justice!

  9. avatar Swarf says:

    Black is all the colors. It’s inclusive.

    I only buy black guns now so my wife can’t tell the difference between the old ones & the new ones.

    Why are you against black guns. Racist? Would carrying a white gun be even more racist?
