Property Manager from New Mexico’s EDC: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Justin from New Mexico, a property manager, sends this “DOD Contractor (not the shooter kind) typical EDC here in the Southwest.

From Everyday Carry.

He writes:

My typical EDC here in the southwest, the staple is the Shield 2.0 9mm with Federal HST’s, and all my holsters for EDC are Priority 1. The Spyderco Paramilitary 2 has never let me down.

He hits all the bases.  The gun (M&P Shield 2.0 9mm) in an IWB rig.  Throw in a good light (Olight) and a blade (Paramilitary 2) and he’s good to go.

Good job Justin.

    This one, like the last one, has either the spare mag carrier worn OWB or the rounds facing backwards. I have that Olight, the tail switch activation is too soft and I cannot recommend cliping it to a pants pocket becuse it can easily be bumped ON. Best to stow it in something like an orgainzer pouch.
    This EDC looks like what I carry, but trade the lip balm for a Zebra F701 pen. A solid EDC.

      He may grab it differently due to the way his wrist works. Some people do that.

      I know a bunch of people who, even being right handed, reverse the far right mag on their front shingle on a PC/chest rig because they rotate their wrist when they reach over that far. Just works better for their biomechanics.

      I actually do the same thing with a horizontal pistol mag carrier when I carry it in certain places because the natural way I reach for it is “backwards” for most people.

        It can work that way, I’m right-handed, and wear a watch on the inside of my left arm. On the outside, I can’t quite see the full face of my watch, inside, no problem.

        It really beats up watch crystals, tho…

          I have wondered for years why people wear watches that way. I’m not too old to learn something

      2. avatar SoCalJack says:

        That makes sense. Thanks for the explaination, I can now stop talking about, “hey, his bullets are facing the work way”. Always something new to learn from you long time TTAG folks.

    What does he mean by saying the Paramilitary 2 has never let him down?

      Killed many enemies.

    Burque? I’d carry something with bigger mags.
