Interesting people from interesting places. With interesting stuff that they carry. That’s what I’ve grown to love about these EDC posts.
I’ve been to Crown Point plenty of times. A nice Cabela’s store there, along with a couple of friends and a good gun show.
And Jose’s got a Ruger SP-101 in the same configuration as the one I lost in a boating accident in Florida. .357. Short barrel. Great little gun. It’s a little hefty in terms of weight, but it shoots like a dream. Especially after a little action job. I made a couple of $20 bills from friends who didn’t think it possible to hit a milk jug at 100 yards with a snub-nosed revolver in five shots. Yeah, it covers all the bases and is very comfortable to shoot with full house loads (unlike those Scandium frame monstrosities) thanks in part to the weight and the rubber grips.
Three HKS Speedloaders for reloads? Darn. He must work the rough side of town! Not that an extra 15 rounds is a bad thing… it’s just that we usually don’t see more than a single reload from most folks, and many don’t even carry that. (Two for me, hypothetically speaking, for the record.)
Beside it is a Kershaw Launch 1. Yes, Indiana is auto knife friendly. Unlike Illinois was/is. Better now that we can have one with a FOID card, but still.
The only thing missing is a light. And a holster, unless he’s pocket carrying this. But that gun has a lot of mass for pocket carry.
He writes this:
Simple and tough edc for various tasks. Dependable automatic knife and reliable multi-tool.
And as a paramedic, I’m sure he sees a lot. Which doubly surprises me that he doesn’t carry a light. Crown Point, being so close to Murder City USA, probably has some interesting ambo calls.
