Military Police Investigator’s EDC: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Brandon, a military police investigator, sends us his rather Spartan EDC he calls his “Legacy EDC.”

He writes how much he likes this load-out.

Love this EDC set up allows me to carry 23 rounds with a clean, sleek, and Professional appearance.

He carries a SIG P320 Compact with a little stipling job.  Add on a InForce APL Pistol Mounted Light and a Hyve magazine extension that he says gets him 23 rounds in a sleek package.  However, he doesn’t reveal in what he carries his Roscoe.

No hand-held flashlight though.  Personally, I’m not a fan of weapons lights used as flashlights.  Rule #1 and all.

    I use to have the P320 Compact and I’m asking why not carry a 15 Rd magazine in the gun and the 23 round monstrosity as a back up? Two 15 round magazines would also be more rounds and not detract from the guns concealability which is one of the reasons I sold mine. I agree with needing a hand held light as well.

      *I found the P320 Compact concealability to be lacking in width. I would think an extended magazine would make the concealability lacking in both width and height.

    Spyderco Spydiechef seems a little odd as part of a CCW EDC kit. Horses for courses!

    Yeah I prefer a hand light, even a small one gets you out of a blackout in a building without emergency lights.

    I think a spare magazine for a pistol is smart. I found one an officer accidentally dropped on a restaurant bench seat one time and returned before he left. Anything can happen to that one in the gun.

    MP’s…. Wanna be cops that get their asses kicked by drunk grunts every weekend.

    Fuck em.

    1. avatar No One Special says:

      Does this same sentiment go to MP’s that are also civilian cops while serving in the Reserve or National Guard?

      1. avatar daveinwyo says:

        Not so much. NG and Reserve MP’s are older/wiser than a 19 -20 year old active duty, full time MP.
        Some do try, but most are just too young to make good cops.

          We still have plenty of 19-20 something’s in the guard that needed to be watched like toddlers for base leo duty. They generally did fine for checkpoint and rout patrol duty and did improve with age/deployment if they were not in on a waiver to begin with.

      2. avatar B.D. says:

        My ex’s brother is a reservist Marine MP. Who thinks because he went to boot camp he knows everything. But every single E4 and below I ever had the displeasure of meeting with while active duty, was a conceited douchebag. And I was just kidding about the drunken stuff… Kinda. I did some crowd control and riot training when I was active duty, and all the instructors were e6 and up. They were really cool, and were very professional.

        1. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

          All matters what you run into. Most MP’s on base duty law and order hate life with what they have to deal with as many of the domestics tend to be uniquely messed up. Crowd control and riot duty training was always a sought-after position as well as convoy/route security. Guess where we sent our fuckups.

        2. avatar B.D. says:

          Lol. The weird part about the riot training was that I was a combat engineer… My last unit sucked… They just handed out the deployment so someone could get their full bird. Half the battalion was sent to Bahrain and they did MP jobs.

        3. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

          My last deployment had a bunch of engineers a few truck drivers and an aviation mechanic deploy as MP’s. Mostly because we were short on people who could meet minimum standards for reasons of ets, profile, and general inability to perform basic level soldier tasks let alone anything involving vehicle searches or maintaining a 249. I was also damn happy my driver was an engineer that paid attention to his explosives classes.

        4. avatar No One Special says:

          Sounds like a serious sad state of affairs for a SNAFU goat rope. Inability to perform basic soldier tasks or maintain a M249? How did they graduate basic training for crying out loud?

        5. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

          No one special, waivers from the 2007ish era that let them in with test scores that would be marginal for infantry. Not to insult infantry they just have a low asvab score requirement as a necessity for how they need to recruit when things pop off. The other part involved rather entitled females who were amazed when they were told to find some other place to be we would rather go undermanned.

        6. avatar No One Special says:

          I guess when I went in in the late 90’s the Army had higher standards. Must be a tragic state of affairs to need bodies for the meat grinder so badly. The really sad thing is these people are so desperate that they don’t realize their inability to perform even the simplest of tasks severely reduces their survival percentage.

        7. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

          If you were in during the Clinton reduction in force yeah you missed a lot of culture change. The ones that don’t understand but are willing to try we were happy to get. What we finally refused to take were ones that understood but didn’t care because someone else would do it for them. They just figured it would be an easy deployment as base MP’s on fob Walton. When they found out they were going to be ied bait and doing everything but base policing (or even on a base with a px) the attitude got worse. Vehicles, weapons, and sensitive equipment got messed up from no pmcs and general abuse and eventually the commander decided to cut 20 odd soldiers from the roster with few complaint’s from above. We should have dropped another dozen but we did need minimum levels to function.

      Best not to let drunken fantasies skew reality.

    His photo makes me dizzy………kinda of a weird angle.

    1. avatar Reason says:

      Yes unless he has the stuff mounted to the ceiling. Bad picture.

  6. avatar Sid Collins says:

    To clarify, this is his off-duty EDC.

  7. avatar GDMF says:

    Regarding the handheld light comment … why is the assumption always that this is *all* the person carries?

    I see no mention of a wallet or phone or car keys? OMG how do they pay for stuff or drive or make calls?

    Comment on what *is* there – not what may not be, k? It would make more sense.

    1. avatar GDMF says:

      Ok – there is a wallet pictured so they can pay for stuff while walking around and not calling people LOL

      Still… there is no need to assume so much just to start a conversation.
