Sailor Carry – Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Here’s US Navy sailor Richard’s EDC gear. We’ve always thought the Ruger LCR (this one in .327 Federal) has one of the best revolver triggers around. And those aftermarket G10 grips are a nice touch, too.

    Now this is a practical edc. I’m almost left wondering where his other three knives, 2 flashlights, and signal flare is.

    1. avatar New Continental Army says:

      Yeah. No tactical Cerakoted survival straw, no note pad with picatinny rails, no tactical survival assault MRE. Just what some dude actually carries in his pocket.

      1. avatar Kyle says:


        “Tactical assault MRE” lmao (for real)

        1. avatar New Continental Army says:

          Funny enough, I took that from an actual event. Back in 2010 or so the army was trying to justify a new ration to replace the MRE. They called it the TAR. The Tactical Assault Ration. Luckily, even the Army brass saw how ridiculous that was and shot it down. One quote I read in the army times was “just what in the hell are you supposed to tactically assault with a ration?”

          Your rectum, if you don’t drink plenty of water with that ration.

        No life preserver!

        No ship-to-shore radio, no bottle of rum, and no golden earrings either. What the hell kind of sailor is this guy?

          I know right?!
          No peg leg
          No Eye Patch
          No parrot

      3. avatar Bierce Ambrose says:

        Wait, my notepad can have rail? I fail at operational operating.

    2. avatar Kahlil says:

      I wonder what his backup gun is, I mean, common sense according to some 😇
      Those grips really stand out though, would love to see those on a colt night cobra.

      1. avatar GluteusMaximus says:

        I have those exact grips on an sp101. Hogue Lammo Cammo

  2. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

    Can anyone who knows tell me how the recoil on .327 Federal compares to .38 spl+P?

    I know it’s less than .357 mag, but how much less?

    1. avatar El possum Gordo says:

      About a quarter of a tenth less I would say, loaded. Depends on the target too. Thank you.

      1. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

        “Depends on the target too.”

        The amount of recoil depends on the target as well…

        H’mmm. I see…

        Hey, Gordo –

        Whatever you’re smoking, can I have some from your bag? 😉

        1. avatar El possum Gordo says:

          Yes, stop at my house papo.

  3. avatar Justin Case says:

    .327 Fed Mag is roughly the same recoil as a standard J Frame with .38 spl.+P. Very manageable with the LCR’s grips. Even more manageable is the .32 H&R Magnum but still not underpowered. XTP projectiles work very well.

    1. avatar Just Sayin says:

      Oo, that’s right!
      The LCR fires all of the .32 cal rounds doesn’t it?

      Does it fire .32 acp using moon clips?

      1. avatar Richard says:

        You don’t need moonclips for the .32 acp but sometimes they don’t extract properly, have to poke the spent cases out of the cylinder.

        1. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

          Have you priced .32 acp ammo?


          Thanks to all for the responses on the .327 recoil question…

      2. avatar Bitter says:

        I wouldn’t think it would all fit together with the moon clip if the cylinder isn’t cut for it but perhaps the acp round would fit and fire without It? It’s way below the pressure of a 327 federal mag round.

        1. avatar anonymoose says:

          .32 ACP is semi-rimmed, so it can be fired in a .32 S&W Long chamber or longer.

  4. avatar Larry says:

    Guy likes quality, Saddleback and Benchmade , nice going . Yes he does need a light and another knife .

  5. avatar Aaron says:

    What, no car keys or house keys? Things that you need even more than a gun!

  6. avatar Huntmaster says:

    He unlocks the house and starts the ca with the phone…

  7. avatar Jon in CO says:

    My only qualm about getting the LCR in 327 is how much longer do we really think it’s going to last? It doesn’t seem to be doing super well, but I really love the cartridge and think it’s amazing for what it does. The extra round in the same size cylinder doesn’t hurt either.

    1. avatar Outwardhound says:

      Meh. Shouldn’t really matter if you buy enough now while it’s available. I expect the few hundred rounds I have on hand to last me the rest of my life – not using it as a range toy and only fire a cylinder for familiarity a couple times a year. Use 32 H&R or 32 Longs for more frequent proficiency training. Reloading might be option too.

      1. avatar Jon in CO says:

        Makes sense. I’m not into reloading at all, don’t have time or space (or money for starting up). The only thing I would get into reloading for would be super expensive long range rifle (338LM, 50, 416, etc.). I’ll take your advice and get a few hundred rounds.

  8. avatar little horn says:

    this posts have just become laughing stocks now. i mean 2 stripper clips dude? does he think this is still the 1800s? is he driving a model-t?

    1. avatar Matt in SC says:

      Look closer, there’s 3 speed loaders there. It’s not the 1800’s, it’s Mad Max territory.

    2. avatar 👍🏻 says:

      Does owning a Glock make you like to suck dick or does sucking dicks make you like Glocks?

    3. avatar Richard Bruns says:

      I carry a M9 on duty. I’ve made a calculation based on the socio/economic group that I belong to and the company that I keep. A relatively small revolver in my pocket is enough to keep my family and I safe while in CONUS. I carry 18 rounds on speed strips because it’s easy, and if things go sideways it may give me a chance to get to my rifle. What’s your background?

    4. avatar Richard Bruns says:

      What wisdom do you have to offer on what I carry? Should it be an auto pistol? What experience led you to be an expert? What do you carry? Have you ever been in a gunfight? I’m eagerly waiting for you to enlighten me with your expertise.

    5. avatar Richard Bruns says:

      Little Horn,

      Please send your resume, I’m ready to learn from you. I can’t wait to hear about your exploits around the world. My little 18 years and eight deployments can’t compare to the wisdom you have. How many men have you killed?

    6. avatar Richard Bruns says:

      Where are you tough-guy? I’d like to meet you in person. Hiding in the Internet? I’m so tired of this, the hiding from the consequences of things you say because of perceived distance. Be a Man.

  9. avatar pg2 says:

    Yes, these EDC posts are often usually more comical than anything else. The over the top tacticool EDC posts are almost embarrassing to read.

  10. avatar Timothy says:

    US Navy Sailor Richard? Is that not shortened to Seaman Dick? What an unfortunate circumstance.

    1. avatar Risky says:

      Ranks name puns are the best. I went to MOS school with a Private Shaver.

      You obviously never served, let me help you out.
