Just grabbing the photo, the first thing I thought was this guy is far too organized. But then again, attaining a CSM rating in the US Army’s enlisted ranks makes him pretty squared away. My life runs far more chaotic, but just the orderly nature of John’s stuff on display makes me ill with envy. Maybe that’s what retired life is like.
He says it’s “just the essentials” and he’s right. SIG P365 9mm pistol (great choice!) and a spare mag loaded with hollow points. But his essentials are all pretty nice, with the exception of the $10 Made in China flashlight. I think I bought the same model years ago and was disappointed with it. Someone should send him the Olight mini-baton!
I bet he only carries a couple of keys on his keyring, too.
