I carry what can be called the anti-tacticool kit, and while some things wear out or are changed out (the Hogue grip and knife, respectively) it is pretty much the same kit I’ve carried for over 20 years.
My trusty GLOCK 19 Gen2 with its third Hogue slip-on grip sleeve. The Trijicon sights are much dimmed now, so I painted the front blade in bright orange enamel. I carry it with one in the chamber and a 15-round magazine loaded with 147gr Federal HST.
A cheap no-name metal LED flashlight I got at the hardware store for around $5 that has lasted for a decade or more (the blue tape makes it easier to spot if I drop it). A Kershaw assisted-opening Ken Onion Blur tanto blade.
An ancient, battered wallet and a 20-year-old Fobus holster that is still the most-often-used holster out of the five I own. I have several expensive leather ones, but I keep coming back to the inexpensive plastic Fobus. It does the job really well and is easy to take off and stash when I can’t carry the pistol into a federal building or similar situation.
If I need a pocket pistol for sooper-concealment I have a Ruger LCP II.
