What Will You Buy With Your $600 Stimulus Check? I Love .32 ACP Pistols, But Is That Enough Any More? 51 COMMENTS Spare mag for LCP? Reply Holsters? Underwear? Is this a multiple choice test? Reply whistle, red lipstick, chewing gum, pocket constitution and a bag of peanuts. Reply Hemmm… extra ammo for the main gun? Reply That’s an extra 13 round XD-M .45 mag right there. Reply But none for the backup gun! As I stated earlier… 🙂 Reply Bah, looked smaller to me so I thought it was the main without it. 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. Reply 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… Reply 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… Reply Tactical flashlight. Reply I’m pretty sure the tactical light is just to the left of the key fob. Reply 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? Reply I”m with Kozak. How can you walk out without a flashlight? http://www.streamlight.com/product/product.aspx?pid=144 Reply Cell phone? Reply 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: 9mm pocket folder extra mag pocket holster for Ruger? phone? wallet ??? (maybe it’s a flashlight)??? keys .380 Reply Definitely breath mints. Reply Tactical breath mints? Reply .50 cal., bro. Reply Nothin’ like anti-matériel mints to blast bad breath away. 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. Blackhawk patrol pack, sunscreen and a doggy poop bag… Reply 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 Reply OK, I feel better that you had the light with you. Reply Holsters! Reply If that’s lying outside on the street, I’d say everything. Reply Faster car? H’yuck. Reply 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. Reply A stack of ones? They must be some fuggly strippers. Reply Doesn’t he live in RI? Reply Good point. So what he really needs is a roll of quarters. ahhhh haaahhhhhhhh! If you ever been to Thailand, you would know how much of a double-entendre that is! 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. Reply So the answer is? Reply There is no right answer, it is up to the individual. Reply ….ooooooooohhhhhhh… Deep. Real deep. Reply Ah. Reply 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. Reply +1 !! My thoughts exactly… Reply EXACTLY!!!!!!! Reply Condoms,lube and a spare mag for the Ruger? A multi-tool? Reply Diapers, wipes, change of clothes? Lip gloss, gum, water bottle? Oh wait, that’s what I never leave the house without. Reply Do you have any room for the kitchen sink? The way I see it you need a strong belt too. Reply (3) fragmentation grenades (2) flash bangs (1) tactical nail clipper (4) packs Reeses peanut butter cups (I like Reese’s) Reply Lighter Reply 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”.) Reply We ever going to get an answer? Reply Nice Mercedes key, but where’s your source of fire? Reply First aid? IBD? multi-tool? pepper spray? BUPS (back up pepper spray) BUW (back up wallet – to fake out a robber)? Fire extinguisher? BUFE? Portable defibrillator? SPOT beacon? back up ammo? armed bodyguard? flame thrower? BUFT? man servant to carry all this stuff? A sense of proportion? Reply Long gun. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
