Corrections Sergeant’s Daily Kit: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

A Tennessee Department of Corrections sergeant sends in his “My daily EDC kit” via Everyday Carry.

“Boss” writes:

I carry this pretty much every day sometimes it changes with situation but off duty it’s like the American Express card I never leave home with out it.

Amazingly, he carries some World War II leather pouches alongside his Springfield XD in .45 ACP.  Obviously he’s a man that likes history.  And they make a great place to carry a personal first aid kit.

Aside from those very distinctive pouches, he carries three blades including an SOG Trident folder.  And that Nitecore Chameleon light is something new and different.

    With the exception of the pistol, you have got to be kidding me.

      It is kind of an eclectic assortment…

        Some folks, really into EDCing, as a hobby/interest carry all kinds of stuff: survival items on their key chain (e.g. lighter, led light, pen, mini pry bar, mini knife), then they have nicely woven paracord, with a decorative bead or 2, attached to each of their knives, flashlights, wallet, and keychain. Not my cup of tea, but I have to admire the level attention and customization put into those functional and cool looking EDCs.

    I haven’t see those in awhile. They look like the old SKS pouches that used to come with SKS’s in the 90s.

      You may be right there. That slightly curved design. I think I remember those.

        Pretty sure those are Vz61 Scorpion mag pouches.

    Speaking about matters involving incarceration, we have this for you as a modest micro-‘Daily Digest’ :

    Dallas County Crooks Rejoice; Democrat DA Won’t Prosecute Thefts Under $750

    “Dallas criminals have just been given a license to steal – up to $750, that is.

    Following his November 2018 election win, Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot, a Democrat, announced that he will no longer prosecute certain low-level crimes, including thefts of personal items worth less than $750 as long as it isn’t for economic gain, according to CBS DFW.”

    I would argue that every theft is for economic gain, since the thief refused to pay for it.

    Just WTF is going on in Texas these days?

    1. avatar Cloudbuster says:

      Well there are now lucrative new career opportunities in Dallas for thieves specializing in items worth less than $750.

    2. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

      If there is no prosecution and no subsequent conviction do they expunge the arrest record…just askin’ for a friend.

    3. avatar Specialist38 says:

      Seems to be the trend everywhere in the US.

      We’re looking more like Brazil every day.

    4. avatar possum says:

      That’s fcked up. So now Texas is going to pass “yah can’t shootem if it’s less then $750”?

  4. avatar jammy says:

    that’s stupid, why 4 knives? and a weak switch blade? why? and why does he need a firestarter for? a med kit, ok. a multi tool, yes ok. a pocket knife yeah ok, a flash light , yep. but all the other stuff, no it’s a waste of weight and you’ll never use it. and no cuffs?

    1. avatar PD>SD says:

      Because he’s corrections lol

  5. avatar SoCalJack says:

    I have to wonder were he clips/hides all knives? I used to carry a 2nd fixed blade for left hand draw (for when my right hand was busy). He carries strongside judging by the holster’s cant he appears to be a big strong guy, so carrying all the stuff he does should not be a burden to EDC.

    A DOC Sargent’s name is “Boss”, how fitting. The baddest there was, the baddest there is and the baddest that will ever be. You go girl

  7. avatar Specialist38 says:

    I’m just trying to wrap my head around the ammo pouches.

  8. avatar TexasJack says:

    I call bull sh*t on this EDC.. 3 knives my a$$ and definitely not the pouches either.. smdh

  9. avatar John Doe says:

    Interesting that an off-duty officer or corrections sergeantis permitted to carry a automatic switchblade knife which I see in the picture in which is illegal to carry. All are equal but some are more equal than others

    1. avatar LJPII says:

      Apparently switch blades are legal in Tennessee…stop whining about more equal John Doe-brain

  10. avatar Hannibal says:

    A little disappointed this guy didn’t take a photo of his belt, it must be pretty damn sturdy. And there must be a lot of real estate on it.

  11. avatar erich s. knox says:

    switchblade? odd choice…

  12. avatar JJ says:

    What an asshole carrying all that shit.

      Job and name pretty well sums it up.
