This may be a bit different take on things. It should be quite obvious that this equipment gets used, and there’s not a lot of bling in it.
This is my “What I’m Carrying Each Walk Around My Block”, a 7-mile round trip through rural Kentucky. My family has been using the great cool spring air to burn up some miles prepping for an eventual return to backpacking.
The GLOCK 20C is the only firearm that I own that I have actually used defensively, against a charging coyote. For the 7-mile walk I have it loaded with Liberty Civil Defense 60 grain hollow points. I realize that is a bit unconventional, but it makes the gun amazingly lighter and should be plenty for any coyote that I come across.
The holster is nothing special. Pure function, Blackhawk Serpa.
The knife is a Benchmade Axis that I had etched at the NRA convention in Louisville.
My trusty near-antique Camelback Mule carries my water, bug repellent, and tick key.
And finally, I keep a set of ear plugs draped around my neck. This little GLOCK is quite loud!
