Question of the Day: What Did I Forget?


  1. avatar Tim says:

    Spare mag for LCP?

  2. avatar Ryan Finn says:

    Holsters? Underwear? Is this a multiple choice test?

  3. avatar DonWorsham says:

    whistle, red lipstick, chewing gum, pocket constitution and a bag of peanuts.

  4. avatar Buuurr says:

    Hemmm… extra ammo for the main gun?

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      That’s an extra 13 round XD-M .45 mag right there.

      1. avatar Tim says:

        But none for the backup gun! As I stated earlier… 🙂

        1. avatar Buuurr says:

          Bah, looked smaller to me so I thought it was the main without it.

  5. avatar Cliff G says:

    MREs, water, thinsulate blanket, hand and toe warmers. Wife and kids. Um, on a side note that wallet is going to give you hip dysplasia, get rid of some of that stuff in it.

    1. avatar Tim says:

      That is why I went with the Slim Clip – very liberating to get rid of all that stuff you don’t need – Debit and Credit, DLicense, NRA card, perhaps 1 or 2 others – and some cash on the other side…

  6. avatar fire_medic says:

    It’s pictures like this one that reminds me how bad it is to live in Chicago. I can’t even legally carry a full sized folding knife. So I’m forced to carry my “working” knife and is a bit harsh on my pockets. Counting the days til I move back to Florida…

  7. avatar Brad Kozak says:

    Tactical flashlight.

  8. avatar fire_medic says:

    I’m pretty sure the tactical light is just to the left of the key fob.

  9. avatar Bob H says:

    Hmmm… A lot depends on where you are going. If you are running errands and the blue thing is your cell, and the thingamabob between the keys and the wallet is a flashlight… Can’t tell what the black leather item between the magazine and the blue thing is…
    Perhaps holsters?
    Or… did you leave it all laying an my sidewalk and forget to actually take any of it with you?

  10. avatar 2yellowdogs says:

    I”m with Kozak. How can you walk out without a flashlight?

  11. avatar Charles says:

    Cell phone?

    1. avatar 2yellowdogs says:

      Pretty sure the blue thing is the cell phone. RF, how about IDing what’s in the pic so we can figure out what you SHOULD be carrying?

      I’ll take a crack at it:
      pocket folder
      extra mag
      pocket holster for Ruger?
      ??? (maybe it’s a flashlight)???

  12. avatar Ralph says:

    Definitely breath mints.

    1. avatar Jeff O. says:

      Tactical breath mints?

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        .50 cal., bro.

        1. avatar Jeff O. says:

          Nothin’ like anti-matériel mints to blast bad breath away.

        2. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

          You should have left the 50 cal to me Ralph, since I’m the king of 500’s. I was going to suggest my snubnose 500 as the ultimate backup, even if you miss the fool the loud blast will blow out his ear drums.

  13. avatar Patrick Brown says:

    Blackhawk patrol pack, sunscreen and a doggy poop bag…

  14. avatar Robert Farago says:

    Left to right:

    Springfield XD-M .45, Spyderco folding knife, spare XD-M mag (13 rounds), sunglasses, iPhone, wallet, Browning Catalyst flashlight, keys, Ruger LC9

  15. avatar 2yellowdogs says:

    OK, I feel better that you had the light with you.

  16. avatar Charles says:


  17. avatar Andrew Wiggins says:

    If that’s lying outside on the street, I’d say everything.

  18. avatar Mr. Lion says:

    Faster car? H’yuck.

  19. avatar Tim says:

    Sticking with spare mag for the LC9 (so I got the gun wrong) – same diff. In any case, if it isn’t that, then the only thing that would make this a party is a stack of ones and a stripper.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      A stack of ones? They must be some fuggly strippers.

      1. avatar Tim says:

        Doesn’t he live in RI?

        1. avatar Ralph says:

          Good point. So what he really needs is a roll of quarters.

        2. avatar Buuurr says:

          ahhhh haaahhhhhhhh!

        3. avatar Tim says:

          If you ever been to Thailand, you would know how much of a double-entendre that is!

  20. avatar Chris Dumm says:

    With all the shit i tend to carry in my pockets, I’m hoping that Molle web gear becomes acceptable business attire. That, or the dreaded Man-Purse.

  21. avatar John Fritz says:

    So the answer is?

    1. avatar DonWorsham says:

      There is no right answer, it is up to the individual.

      1. avatar Jeff O. says:


        Deep. Real deep.

    2. avatar John Fritz says:


  22. avatar GAKoenig says:

    I would carry a can of pepper spray well before I carried a backup gun.

    Unless you are doing some serious H2H training, you need an option for those situations where you can’t get the hell out of dodge, but the threat has also not reached the lethal force threshold.

    The probability of using a can of pepper is WAY higher than the probability of needing a BUG.

    1. avatar Patrick Carrube says:

      +1 !! My thoughts exactly…

      1. avatar Travis Leibold says:


  23. avatar Sean says:

    Condoms,lube and a spare mag for the Ruger? A multi-tool?

  24. avatar Mrs. Finn says:

    Diapers, wipes, change of clothes? Lip gloss, gum, water bottle? Oh wait, that’s what I never leave the house without.

  25. avatar Javier E says:

    Do you have any room for the kitchen sink? The way I see it you need a strong belt too.

  26. avatar Tom says:

    (3) fragmentation grenades
    (2) flash bangs
    (1) tactical nail clipper
    (4) packs Reeses peanut butter cups (I like Reese’s)

    1. avatar BLAMMO says:

      BIC lighter!!!

      Portable, reliable, weatherproof fire that can sit for decades and still work every time. I’ve found ones around my house from the ’70s and they still work like a charm.

      (I posted this previously, but “it didn’t take”.)

  27. avatar Tim says:

    We ever going to get an answer?

  28. avatar Bill Johnson says:

    Nice Mercedes key, but where’s your source of fire?

  29. avatar Roger says:

    First aid?
    pepper spray?
    BUPS (back up pepper spray)
    BUW (back up wallet – to fake out a robber)?
    Fire extinguisher?
    Portable defibrillator?
    SPOT beacon?
    back up ammo?
    armed bodyguard?
    flame thrower?
    man servant to carry all this stuff?
    A sense of proportion?

  30. avatar Lance says:

    Long gun.
