He has about everything you would expect of someone who knows what they’re doing and has acknowledged that evil does exist in the world.
Machnuone writes of his stuff:
Today’s EDC. S&W M&P9 Shield 2.0, 8+1 in the chamber. Extra 8 round magazine. Loaded with Federal HST 147gr +P. BladeTech Klipt AIWB Holster. Concealment Express mag carrier. Magpul Daka Wallet and Magpul Explorer shades(love these things). Streamlight ProTac 2L. Benchmade Casbah auto and Benchmade SOCP dagger, which doesn’t always come along, but did today. HK style key chain and as always, a decent blue pen. Cheers.
Does Magpul make anything that’s junk? I haven’t found it yet. Like 5.11, all their stuff is solid. And for most stuff, it’s affordable too. It seems Machnuone approves of the Magpul Explorer shades (I didn’t know such a thing even existed!) Clearly he likes the Magpul DAKA Essentials wallet. Must be for folks who don’t carry so much cash.
He carries a S&W Shield in 9mm with a spare magazine. (Good). He carries a blade and a stiletto (double plus good). They’re Benchmade, so you know he paid a pretty penny for them so the good folks at Benchmade can grind up guns in their spare time. At the same time Benchmade doesn’t make junk either.
Then there’s the Streamlight Protac 2L, which is a nice light at an affordable price that won’t leave you sobbing hysterically if you lose it as you might with a $200 SureFire. (Or a retired FBI friend of mine who lost a $400 Sure Fire his son bought him. He found it a year later… in his gun safe!)
“And a decent blue pen” he writes. I’m guessing his favorite color is blue. But being a cop, can you blame him?
By the way, have you ever found something you thought you lost in your gun safe? Lord knows I have. I thought I lost a Glock 26 in a custom IWB holster. Problem was it was buried under a bunch of other pistols in holsters! Whew! Don’t tell my wife.
