Ed Teach, a guy who describes himself as a pirate, sends in this submission of his everyday carry gear. From Everyday Carry. (Go ahead and submit your EDC… we’ll share it here in a week or two. I’d love to see what Vlad carries. Or doesn’t carry.)
Yes, everything right down to Grave Before Shave mustache wax.
He writes this:
It may seem like a lot but believe it or not the only thing in my back pockets are my keys. Clipped to my beltloop, hangs down into pocket. Everything else fits comfortable in front pocket without being bulky. The tornado pen goes in shirt pocket, or doesn’t come with me. Everything else I carry with me everyday and use it all I use everyday.
I know the wallet is unconventional but it serves more than one purpose very well, while being very minimalist.
He carries his GLOCK 43 with a “Clipdraw” clip mounted to the gun instead of a traditional holster. Not my speed for a host of reasons. Not the least of which it’s impossible to get a proper grip on the gun before drawing and the potential for the gun’s cant to shift around or move on the belt. At least he carries a trigger guard cover so he doesn’t potentially perforate himself if something like bunched up clothing gets inside that trigger guard.
