A Zippo lighter, a good fountain pen, a pipe tool, a utility knife, a firearm. Feel free to add your own necessities.

My EDC's include a lighter (sometimes Zippo, more often lately my Xikar soft flame, although the zippo is the true multi-fueler in the lighter world), knife, Surefire flashlight, wallet, keys and cell phone. My Xikar cutter is often included as well. I also usually carry my Timbuk2 but that is another whole can of worms, and my GHB which contains pistol and other essentials since I don't CCW.

I never thought to carry a firearm in my pocket. That seems like it belongs on a leg or a shoulder. Plus, if I stuck my hand in my pocket to retrieve my pipe but accidentally pulled the trigger on my gun, well, I wouldn't want to face that situation half-cocked.

A handkerchief. If not for yourself, then for any weeping woman you should happen to meet.

Yes because it's cool to have a woman wipe her eyes with your snot rag.

You guys must have some awfully big pockets Laughing

Guns, knives, multiple lighters, cutters and tools? You're gonna need some serious susupenders to keep them trousers up! I'm guessing you don't go in for the trim and slim look in pants Laughing

One small key ring with three keys on it, one slim front pocket wallet with only a DL and a bank card in it. That's it, period. I hate having a bunch of crap in my pockets.

Yes, actually the 5.11 cargo pants have pretty much become my daily wear in lieu of jeans.

I tried the handkerchief thing. I really did. Whenever I pulled it out, it was covered in lint. Not classy. Also, once it was used and put back, my leg got itchy.

Now when a lady needs a wipe, I hand over the box of kleenex. Still not classy but at least hygienic.

Mr. Plumbernater: May I ask what your carry piece is? Browning? Beretta? I love guns of that size. I sold my Walther PPK/S and have been kicking my ass ever since. When I carry, it's a .45 Combat Commander--but the operative words here are "when I carry." The .45 tends to get left behind due to its weight; I carried the Walther everywhere.

I'd like to think it's because I'm such a heart breaker, but it's probably just tears of disappointment. Sad

"I never thought to carry a firearm in my pocket. That seems like it belongs on a leg or a shoulder. Plus, if I stuck my hand in my pocket to retrieve my pipe but accidentally pulled the trigger on my gun, well, I wouldn't want to face that situation half-cocked."

When you carry a pistol in a pocket, you have to pretty much dedicate the pocket to that use exclusively. Otherwise, it could make for some pretty scary moments.

"Tough neighbourhood eh?" I doubt if my neighborhood is any tougher than any other. I carry a pistol because: 1. a cop is too heavy; 2. when danger is imminent, the police are only moments away; 3. police do not have a legal obligation to protect individual citizens (Warren v. District of Columbia, 1981). I stole that from another forum, but it pretty well sums up my attitude. It's substantially the same reason I have a monitored security system in my home and motion activated high intensity floodlights in strategic places outside the house. I pray I never need any of them, but forearmed is forewarned, as they say.
