  1. Very nice – especially considering it’s similar to my setup! I like the 124 grain HST +P, although I have a lot of standard pressure rounds as well. I notice a bit more noise and recoil, but I also notice an increase in velocity.

    • I used to be a 124+p guy. But, moved over the 147 standard pressure loads….

      The noise was the part which sold me in the end. I figure, if I need to pull my smoke wagon in a DGU, I am not wearing ear pro.

      So, I don’t want to blow out my ears anymore than necessary.

  2. I carried a spyderco with a vg-10 blade for several years while stationed in Mississippi. The humidity and summer heat resulted in drenched-with-sweat clothing, especially when working outside. That blade never showed a spot of rust, and I probably only oiled/cleaned it every 6mo; I was very impressed.

  3. I noticed a lot of folks carry larger mags as a spare.

    Just a word to the wise, I used to di the same thing and it can cause issues. During a training class, I kept having issues with the extended mags.

    Nothing catastrophic, but things which you don’t want happening in a gun fight. Especially, if you are reloading, which already means bad news bears.

  4. Ryan, that is an excellent summer carry, I would personally add a weapon light but thats its. All the bases covered quite nicely! Good to see such a well put together edc
