Canterbury writes, “This would be a full complement EDC for a short day hike or tramp into the woods.” I think I envy him for having a place where he can hike through the woods with a long gun, even if it’s obviously a survival rifle.
In my not-so-gun-friendly state, some special snowflake would call the police. If the regular po-po couldn’t cite you, they might summon the fish cops to come cite you for some violation of some game code regulation. Because, you know, you might be shooting a yellow-breasted mattress thrasher or the spotted dingbat while out enjoying nature.
I like the leather gloves, the knives, the canteen and compass. Given how thorough this Canterbury character portrays himself, I’m surprised he doesn’t have at least a few pages out of a topographical map. After all, as one sage friend told me, “if you don’t know where you are, it’s hard to figure out where you want to go.”
I like the hatchet too, even though he calls it a Rooster Mod Chicken Hawk. If you follow the Everyday Carry link like I did on that item, you’ll probably roll your eyes and get a chuckle too. Heck, you might even buy one as a joke.
Given Mr. Canterbury doesn’t carry any extra ammo for his .410/.22 combo M6 Scout survival rifle, that must mean he’s a pretty crack shot. That or he doesn’t encounter many rabid ground squirrels in his tramping around in the woods.
