Here is my pocket dump minus wallet, hand sanitizer, work, and personal phones. I usually wear a suit jacket or sports coat due to work. I’ve adopted this for daily dress, which helps with concealment.
I carry a Walther PPS M2 with three seven-round magazines. I really like this pistol. I recently sold a Ruger LC9S which I liked, but the grip was too narrow. The ergonomics and trigger on the PPS M2 are almost as good as my PPQ M2. It puts bullets where I want them to go.
I am running Hornady Critical Defense ammunition. In the colder months, I like to carry the PPQ, but it’s hot in South Texas right now. Say what you want about single stacks, but if I need more than 22 rounds, you can tell my wife I probably had it coming. She’ll likely nod slowly and say that I probably did.
The Kydex holster is from On-Your-Six Designs in San Antonio. They molded the holster off the actual pistol. Great retention. They give you belt clips for various belt widths, free of charge with 30-minute to 2-hour turnaround time on walk ins. They made me some nice OWB holsters for the PPQ M2 Navy and an XD-40, both with TLR-7 lights. They also made IWBs for my LC9S and my Thunder .380. Reasonable prices.
I carry a well-worn Infinity Blades OTF knife and a small, Nebo flashlight. The knife has served me well. The flashlight lights up every time with bright, dim and strobe settings. There is enough crap on my keychain that I am regularly mistaken for the maintenance guy when people hear me walking by.
