Here’s what I’m carrying during my limited, weekly outings to purchase precious commodities such as toilet paper and fresh fruit. The first trick was taking a picture that includes my admittedly outdated iPhone 8 Plus, that I use to take all my photos and keep my shopping list (and make the occasional call). With that figured out, there it is among my other necessities, well-preserved in its UAG case.
This Alien Gear IWB is comfortable all day long, even when climbing in and out and driving my 2-seater. It secures my SIG P290 with laser. Nearly smaller than my phone, the SIG’s extended magazine makes for a better grip and still allows it to be virtually invisible (or that just might be attributed to my girth) when carrying.
My at-home and walk-around firearms are all loaded with HPR 9mm, 147 Grain JHP to stop and safely stay where I might need to put them.
My other tool is a Havalon Piranta because…no sharpening. I “lost” my first one for a time until the good folks at the TSA found it under the lining of one of my carry-ons. Once that was permanently lost (or in the pocket of the TSA worker who found it) I ordered this one while waiting to board my flight.
Other essentials include a Bellroy Slim Sleeve wallet, very essential Nooz pocket reading glasses, and a Ball Roadmaster Marine GMT watch.
