Jay's everydaycarry.com pocket dump

The headline above Jay’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump is something of a trick question. Assuming he’s not showing his phone because he’s using it to take the picture, Jay’s got the basics covered: money, ID, keys knife, pen, watch, gun. In fact, he could carry even less . . .

A phone is a pretty good timekeeper. And while no insurance guy worth his salt would go around without a pen to hand to a potential client, the chances of needing it for some John Wick type action are pretty low. Wait. He used a pencil! Anyway . . .

What, if anything, would you add to his EDC loadout?

  1. FIELD NOTES!!!
    Just kidding, I don’t carry them either. I’d say this is a good,honest pocket dump with no attempt to impress anyone. I might add an extra mag, but that’s it.
    🤠

    • Look closely at the gun, there is something on the other side that it is sitting on. Looks to me like some sort of attached clip for pocket or belt carry.

        • Not that it matters, but for the sake of getting my mind off the other crazy headlines, I don’t think it’s a cable hole grommet. Those usually sit kind of flush. If you look at the gun shadow compared to the knife or watch shadow, the gun is lifted up from the table.

          Maybe it’s filled with a few Chinese throwing stars. Or hair product. Or maybe it’s one of those new portable devices to manipulate orgone energy. They make em so small now.

        • Interesting. I’m in the market for a new desk. Which manufacturer has that option?

          And do you prefer that unconventional cable management design over flush mount?

  2. He’s got the basics covered. #1 ….. have a gun.

    I will also have to say I am warming to FNS 9c.

    Played with one the other day.

    Not ready to replace my SR9c but it may need a friend.

    • Yup. A good flashlight. I think that multi tool pen has a flashlight, but its too weak for a DGU in any low light condition.

  3. What’s Missing From This Picture?

    Metamucil. Because most people can use more fiber.

    And a second mag. Because most people can use more ammo.

    • Haha. Metamucil. That one got me.

      I wonder how many people die a year from constipation? Maybe I should drop it before someone tries to make dairy and red meat illegal…

  4. Seriously, a good concealment holster, a spare magazine and maybe a pouch for it, and a good compact flashlight. Looks like there may be some multi-use tools on the carabiner. And don’t forget the lip balm, hand sanitizer, breath mints, reading glasses, cigar cutter and lighter…. Oh wait, all that’s in my man purse.

  5. I figure a holster is assumed. And we’re already assuming a phone.

    I don’t typically carry a flashlight. My smartphone is my emergency flashlight.

    Extra magazine is obvious for us “belt & suspenders” types.

    I’d say a different knife. That’s a poor excuse for a fighting knife — no stabbing capability at all.

    ETA: Heh. Turns out he’s got a flashlight on that octopus of a keychain. Good enough. I do, too, as part of a SwissTech tool, but the battery is dead, ATM.

    Who really needs a watch in the days of smart phones?

    • Those of us that don’t want to have to fumble our phone out just to check the time.
