    I've been carrying concealed for the past 4.5 years and have always used a 1.5" belt. I just switched over to 1.75: belt yesterday and have noticed a slight difference in carrying. The extra .25" on the belt really does help stabilize the load on my belt!

    With all the stuff I EDC I'm starting to feel like batman...without the cool car.

    What about everyone else? What do you use? What do you wear? Whats your EDC?

    I will do a pocket dump here in a second....

    RF pocket: Blade-Tech Ganyana Lite (Orange/Black) clipped, CRK small insingo in leather pocket slip sheath. sometimes my Google Nexus one in a Case Mate Tough Case.

    LF pocket: 4 Sevens 2 AA with Tactical clicky switch and normal head. Carmex lipbalm for the and blink contact solution.

    Right Rear pocket: Spec Ops "The Wallet Jr." with a small fisher space pen

    Left Rear pocket: Orignial Buff in OD.

    Shirt: Fox/Mil-Tac pen in OD

    Coat RF: Keys with Leatherman squirt P4, Spyderco Lady Bug in H1 SE, Peanut lighter, Photon Micro Light

    Left hip: 1 spare mag in a Blade-Tech Single Mag Pouch w/ BTK

    Right hip: XD 45 service w/ XS big dot sights and CTC grip. Loaded with 230 grain speer gold dots. Rides in a Blade-Tech Eclipse holster with IWB conversion kit using the Tuckable S-Hooks

    This usually stays consistent. I sometime change out whats clipped to my RF pocket and I sometimes switch to my XD Subcompact in 9mm.

    Maybe I do an EDC bag dump later.......:foot:

    Thats too funny! I have both the merino wool (3) and original buff (Too many to count). I have purchased well over 20 and given many away as gifts. I have one in every coat, and 1 in every bag.


    BTW money will come after you finish your college education.

    I'll have to try out one of those Buff's :)

    My EDC during the week is pretty limited.

    Leatherman SuperTool 300
    ITP A3 EOS flashlight
    ESEE Izula
    Keys (with photon freedom and stayglow Vic Classic)
    Black Space Pen
    Dumb phone

    On the weekends or when I'm not working I usually drop the MT and the Izula and switch off between a variety of folders. I also switch over to my MicroStream.

    I'm currently deployed, so I carry some stuff here that I wouldn't in the States.

    Like you, I have recently received a new, wider Wilderness belt. I like the narrower belt for regular pants and jeans in civilian life, but the 1.5 belt allows my military pants, with their wider belt loops, to curl down. I think the 1.75 will fix that. Here's a recent list...

    Nokia phone (model unknown)
    hard-sided notebook
    Beretta M9 in BladeTech level 2 holster
    spare M9 mag in BT carrier
    Gerber 06 automatic knife
    red Photon 2 microlight
    Gerber Shard
    Ice Breakers Ice Cubes gum
    travel toothpaste and brush
    patrol cap
    fleece cap
    fleece gloves
    Revision Hellfly glasses
    ear plugs
    hand warmers
    ElZetta ZFL-M60
    Cigar Savor cutter

    This was a list from a month ago. Think I've lost the cutter. :( Used my Spyderco Dragonfly H1 on my Montecristo today. Worked fairly well. :) I gave away the Gerber auto. I bought a Spyderco Embassy. Also carrying the Spyderco Dragonfly I mentioned.

    I say give us a shot for a holster. I personally wear my OD sub 9mm in my 4" service holsters. Personally, I carry them in our Eclipse holster with our IWB conversion kit running the 1.5" razor loops. Check it out and let me know what you think of it.

    What I would like to see from Blade-tech is a kydex pocket holster for the Kahr, Ruger and Keltec pocket gun lineup. Something that is absolutely minimalist (which is why we pocket carry to begin with), and maybe a little thumb tab or something to aid extraction. Big seller.

    I have probably a dozen Blade-tech IWB holsters from back in the day, but like many folks, have transitioned solely to pocket carry.

    This is how I roll:

    Right front pocket - Speed strip carrying 6 .38 +P rounds and Benchmade Aphid or SOG Flash I

    Right hip pocket - wallet
    Left hip pocket - hanky and Benchmade Mini Grip clipped to pocket
    Right hip at 4:00 - S&W M&P 45 Compact in a K&D Thunderbird Defender IWB holster on a Don Hume 1.25" Trouser Belt
    Left hip - 2 reloads in a Don Hume double mag carrier
    Inside left ankle - S&W 442 in a Desantis Apache

    Here is my basic Urban carry.

    Right front pocket: Spydie Delica Saber grind
    Right front watch pocket: my keys with a SAK Rambler (only have house, padlack and desk key)
    Left front pocket: Drivers license, debit card, few business cards in nylon card holder with my cash over that. Dont carry wallet unless I need my credit card! Wallet stays in desk.
    Left back pocket: orange bandana
    Right back pocket: nothing

    Within my jacket pockets: Left outside: iTP A3 EOS upgrade flashlight, Inside left pocket: dumb phone and pen, Right outside: car key (if I drive).

    In my jacket I have two left and right outside pockets (one zips, one open) and one inside pocket. I also carry a couple of napkins and toothpicks in the second left hand pocket.

    No gun but we (me and the misses) have been discussing getting a pistol or two and maybe one rifle. Just started looking around.

    Make sure that you and the misses take a safety seminar too so you both are properly trained!

    Strongly agree. There's usually a NRA-certified trainer nearby that will offer CCL/CCW training very reasonably.

    Amen brother! I'm carryin' 2 of the 3 you mentioned, (depending on jeans or shorts) & I went with a custom leather pocket holster for my Kahr. There's literally no real good options on the market for it!
