He’s young (22). And the fine city of Detroit is just a hop, skip and a short car ride away for Motor City ne’er-do-wells to swing by and visit Livonia. And maybe victimize its residents. So I don’t blame Ken for carrying a GLOCK 19 in a Raven Concealment Systems Ambidextrous Morrigan IWB Holster. Oh yes, and a spare magazine loaded with smiley-faced hollow-points.
Like me, he’s a health club member. Planet Pizza for Ken, LA Fitness for me. (Attention health club members: Do you carry when working out?)
A very basic EDC for a manager and a Pizzeria. Always using one or the other at some point. The only thing that really changes in my EDC is my Fitbit band, Paracord bracelet, and pocket knife. I have several different ZT knives that I had to start a knife of the week so that I could use them all at some point. Other than that everything in the photo stays the same.
So, once again, do you carry while working out at the gym?
I don’t. Usually. One day, I had a gun hater give me a hard time when he saw my holstered GLOCK 19 on my belt. He quipped some asinine remark like: “I see you have a gun. There is a lot of testosterone here. Never know when you’ll need to shoot someone over a barbell.”
Flexing my diplomacy muscle, I just smiled. “You know, I can handle the testosterone. It’s the unknowns out in the parking lot that worry me. After all, parking lots are one of the three places you’re most likely to get victimized by a violent bad guy.” And with that I walked out.
