Mr. Williford stands as the first person I know who actually trusts his life to a Polymer 80 “ghost gun”. As much as I may or may not like my hypothetical ghost guns, I will always carry a real GLOCK over a Polymer 80.
The Polymer 80s, of course, are the “80% completed” GLOCK-style lower handgun frames that you finish machining, then complete into a functioning gun by installing the parts and a slide.
Why do I choose a factory gun over a home-brew serial number-free gun? A dear friend, now tragically deceased, had a “ghostly” AR-15. He always kept saying he had finally ironed out the problems, yet every time he fired it in my presence for the better part of a year, it malfunctioned within a few rounds. I think he got it fixed before he died, but the memories of his problems still rattle around in the back of my mind. While my hypothetical ghosts have been problem free, I still don’t completely trust those spooky things.
At the same time, Mr. W. really should invest in some hollow-point rounds for his everyday carry because ball ammo tends to over-penetrate and under-perform on bad guys.
My edc is as simple and effective as i need it to be. I normally carry my pf940sc because there is virtually no imprint when i carry iwb with this particular holster. My flashlight for choice of carry is the Bushnell PHP 400L flashlight. Its not a small light by any means but i only carry it when necessary, and i like the idea of the aggressive bezel. The reason for two knives is obvious, and something i believe is absolutely necessary… I carry a Kershaw Speedsafe that is spring assisted as my primary, and a smaller traditional Kershaw folder with a rubber molded grip and a thumb break.. I carry this as a secondary or backup because it is a tried and true design and yet again it’s simple! I keep my keys on a Triwonder 1″ HK clip that i added a Velcro strap to it so i can mount it to my belt, but still be able to pull it off without too much resistance.. As for my wallet it was nice… And I think it’s about time for a new one!.. Anyway Thanks for checking out my pocket dump!!
So he only carries his Bushnell flashlight when he needs it? Does he only use his seat belt when he thinks he needs it, too?
C’mon Bill: Carry your flashlight, buy a couple of boxes of hollow-points and up your game, sir! Congrats on the Polymer 80 though!
