The Medic From Wyoming: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

David McCarthy, a medic from the great state of Wyoming sends his “My Everyday Carry,” thanks to Everyday Carry.

He must like gloves – as he’s got a pair of Mechanix Impact gloves.  I like Mechanix gloves as well, but I don’t carry them everyday.  Well, not on my person.  (I have a set in the pocket behind my driver’s seats.)  He has a robust keyring, too.

Oh yeah, and a Springfield Armory XD45.  (Springfield’s once again a friend of Illinois gun owners… so don’t harangue them or David for carrying one of their products.)

I’ve got the same gun but carrying it, and two spare mags is a drag after about 10 to 12 hours.

Two surprises:  No flashlight and no smart phone.  A medic who doesn’t carry a light?  What’s up with that?  He’s got a Leatherman PSTII multi-tool, but no light.  Strange.

    “I’ve got the same gun but carrying it, and two spare mags is a drag after about 10 to 12 hours.”

    Aren’t you the same guy that makes the ludicrous claim that he carries 10 pounds of gear on him every day in a non professional capacity?

      Lol, I believe so.

      To be fair, I don’t carry my reload either. It stays in my car and I simply gamble my future. Works for me.

    2. avatar Let's Not Take this Seriously says:

      Yes, that was the claim. A lot of claims can be made on the internet after a person is done doing “save the burning girl” drills with friends who can’t grip their guns properly in the driveway in suburban Illinois.

    That widget that’s front and center on his key ring is likely a small flash light. It has a push button on it. I’ve been known to carry those little lights on my key rings. They’re disposable and cheap.

      I carried one for years

      USB drive?

      It’s a USB flash drive. I have the same exact one in my hand as I type this.

    The EDC load out that tells the world ‘I’ve given up on my hopes and dreams’!

    At least this one has a holster.

    “Springfield’s once again a friend of Illinois gun owners… so don’t harangue them…” Yeah, the kind of friend you don’t turn your back on. The kind of friend that approached Caesar in the Senate.

    Springfield isn’t a friend of this Illinois gun owner. In fact I’m still pissed at what Bill Ruger did to us in 94.

    1. avatar strych9 says:

      The real question here is why you’re giving Bill Ruger free rent in your head approaching two decades after the guy croaked.

    2. avatar enuf says:

      The Ruger company has more than made up for it’s founders errors in politics. Today I own four Ruger guns and have given two as gifts. Thinking on adding another, but it’s new to the market and I’m waiting to see how the model series develops.

    Even weirder is a medic who does not carry some kind of first aid/tourniquet/rats. At least some fucken band-aids…
