Always Prepared: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Floridian Camdon Hay sends us his pocket dump entitled, “Always prepared, never off guard.”  Courtesy of Everyday Carry.

According to him, he builds up from a GLOCK 19X.   Basically a G19 slide on a G17 frame.  Extra bullets, you know.  To me though, it looks like a classic GLOCK 19.  Maybe my sensor needs calibration.

He wears it in an unspecified holster (kudos to whomever can identify it!).  Oh yeah, in addition to a Smith & Wesson knife and a Hybeam Microlight, he’s got a spare 17-round magazine (likely with a +2 magazine plate).

But back to that light.  Camdon carries a $500-600 gun, but carries a $5, single AAA battery flashlight?  Beats a Zippo lighter, I suppose.

Oh yes, and for a backup gun he carries the very deep cover North American Arms .22 Magnum Mini-Revolver.  Even at a .22, it’ll look a lot bigger to an amateur criminal staring down its muzzle if the worst happens.

    I agree a better light would be, well, better and at least the NAA revolver isn’t a primary like we saw recently.

      A flashlight is a tool to see in the dark not a weapon for most people. I know people talk about how it has the ability to stun people or de escalate a situation but I would proffer to you that a 5 dollar maglight will do that just at well as a 1000 lumen wonder. In fact their is such a thing as too bright.

    The holster is made by Seymour Buttz Inc.

    Kudos to me.

    The .22 is in case of bear attack. Just shoot your friend in the kneecap and ample off easy.

    1. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

      ample is for bosoms.
      amble? preamble? ramble? rambler? sc/rambler with a 390!
      and a sun tach hose clamped to the column.
      just bought an ’02 m2.

    You can’t get an effective gun for $5. You can get an effective flashlight for that price. Not everyone needs the most tacticool 4 gigawatt powered billion lumens Navy SEALs approved light while they’re trying to find the release latch under their car hood.

    1. avatar B.D. says:

      Do you have any understanding of what a defensive flashlight is used for? Aside from the regular use a flashlight gets, a “tacticool” high lumen light can easily disorient someone. Even in day time. Ever get flashed and see spots then feel disoriented? Here’s your sign.

      Lastly, dude, all your comments are terrible, all over this site. Maybe sit back and learn something for a month or two then try commenting again.

      1. avatar B.D. says:

        also, if you need a light to find the hood release latch, just take it to a mechanic.

      2. avatar Hannibal says:

        Aww, is the keyboard warrior upset because I called him a dumbass somewhere? I’m glad I get to occupy your mind rent-free all day long… whoever you are. Keep following me around, little doggie.

        I’ve carried plenty of good flashlights for work, and I have a little one for carry. It’s better than a $5 battery special, but the returns are extremely marginal unless you’re walking around at 3AM in Chiraq (and then you’ve got bigger problems). Someone carrying even a cheap flashlight and a firearm is ahead enough in the game that they don’t need lecturing. You know what you learn when you get off the internet (and Soldier of Fortune magazines)? Mall ninjas get off to talking about “defensive flashlights” and various other tacticool nonsense while people who actually have even a little experience have so many better things to worry about. Or you could go watch that infomercial where a totally real Navy SEAL shows you how his flashlight (three easy payments of 59.99!) can take down a squadron of ninjas with it’s fancy strobe.

        1. avatar B.D. says:

          And full of yourself too. Hate to spoil your fun, but only noticed you on a couple articles spewing crap all along and had multiple corrections to your rant. I get it, you hate the tactical applications of a flashlight. It’s fine. Not anyone’s go to obviously, never said it should be. Maybe some of us just want a brighter light? But I guess if it’s made by a certain brand, then it’s only for “mall ninja’s”? So which brand would you NOT recommend? Streamlight? Surefire? Also, you realize there are these things called notifications, right? You may lose sleep over a discussion or a differing opinion and let it fuel your vomit induced commenting then hope everyone feels the same as you, but some of us won’t. I’ll chose to ignore the rest of these ones and not click those boxes above the “Post comment” button. K? Bai.

          Hannibal has been ’round here a fuck of a lot longer than you have and quite frankly, has a lot more credibility than *you*…

        3. avatar B.D. says:

          No surprise someone like you would chime in. Credibility? Lol, you old farts belong down at the VA complaining about vaccination and obama.

    2. avatar possum, destroyer of arachnids says:

      Agree on the flashlight. I’m just fine with a mini mag. When I lived in the country I liked a big bright sun blaster , I have no need for one now.

  5. avatar Specialist38 says:

    Looks like a 19X to me with that big-assed grip.

    Agree with Hannibal. Plenty of good 5-10 dollar lights out there.

    Carry on.

    1. avatar JD says:

      There is no such thing as a good 5 dollar flashlight. You people are morons. B.D. is right. A 5 dollar flashlight will fail you when you need it most. I suppose a lorcin is your choice of carry because it’s “good enough”. You stink of mediocrity.

      1. avatar Specialist38 says:


        Got a $7 Nebo in my truck.

        And you NEED a $300 knife and a $20 pen.

        What a moron.

      2. avatar Geoff "It's always good to turn a troll into a fun punch-toy" PR says:

        “There is no such thing as a good 5 dollar flashlight. You people are morons. B.D. is right.”

        A 5-dollar light beats no light at all any day of the week.

        ‘JD’ and ‘B.D.’, the ‘Bobbsey Twins’ of fuckwits…

        1. avatar JD says:

          Geoff (he who spells his name the gay way) get a job if all you can afford is a 5 dollar light. Me, I have a job and can afford a real light. You and your little bitch boy specialist 38 I see still reach for the pinnacle at good enough. I can only imagine what your lives must be like where you fools settle for garbage equipment. LMFAO! Ohh you girls need to get a life! Bye now, I’ve got much better things to do. Unlike you losers! Hahahaha!

    The owner of this EDC says he’s a commercial driver. So i assume he has a larger flashlight in the cab. But can he quickly get to his weapon when he’s seated?

    1. avatar strych9 says:

      The picture suggests that he carries it on him since that holster is fairly well used.

      That said, I have a couple “beater” IWB holsters, even a lefty model these days because I discovered that there are some spots in my fishing vehicle (read: beater SUV) that fit them perfectly and the clips even hold them on to the car so I get decent retention (sans rolling the car) and don’t have to worry that the holster will come with the gun if I try to draw it.

      So now I just add a pistol the car on fishing expeditions and my EDC gun goes with me if I exit the car but inside the car I have an easier to draw pistol.

      The only downside is that now my shoulder holsters feel unloved unless it’s a motorcycle type of day.

    2. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “But can he quickly get to his weapon when he’s seated?”

      That may be what the clipped NAA is for…

  8. avatar possum, destroyer of arachnids says:

    Even though I don’t like Gocks I like this guy’s layout. Especially the hideout gunm, good idea. And not to sure but isn’t this the first EDC to feature one? Knives, I know their more inconvenient to carry then a folder I myself have more faith in a fixed blade. However if a person is confident that they can drive their folder to the hilt through 1/2 inch plywood ( about what it takes) then good enuff. BTW I once stabbed a guy with s switchblade and the blade broke off in him. I also stabbed a guy with a screwdriver and it didn’t break, so I’m a fixed blade fan.

    1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “Especially the hideout gunm, good idea. And not to sure but isn’t this the first EDC to feature one?”

      No, there have been a number of them, over the years I have been ’round here. At least two of them had them as primary carry.

      Kinda figures scaly-tailed Marsupials with beady eyes and belly-pouches would like ’em… 😉

    2. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

      agree with fixed. but the switchblade, it broke at the pivot or snapped the blade?

      1. avatar possum, destroyer of arachnids says:

        Don’t really know, I was left holding the handle. I think the blade snapped. I pitched the knife as soon as I got out the door.

  9. avatar Tom RKBA says:

    That holster…it is awful. One would think that by 2019, people carrying guns would know better.

  10. avatar Chevy says:

    The holster is a rapid fire 2

  11. avatar Kman says:

    Holster looks like a Versacarry “universal” fit type.
    I’m glad to see anyone carry anything they want to or nothing at all.
