Daily Carry

Postby DeeJay » Thu 19 Jun 2008 10:52 am

I'm a bit of a Knife-Nut and have been since I was given my first pocketknife at age 8. It was a Roy Rogers Camillus. Man I wish I still had it in original condition. Been collecting knives ever since. Proly 500 of so by now.

Through the years I have developed quite a respect for and carry Bench-Made Daily. The Mel Pardut Tanto in my boot and the HK in my pocket with my keys and change. Both are Bench-Made autos and are used daily.

What do you carry in your pocket?

I carry a gun in my pocket.

Ok, I do carry a small, folding Buck knife in the other pocket but it's not a weapon, it's a tool.

I am a big Benchmade fan and have carried one since 1999.

I have a Stryker and a CQC7 but my favorite is my Mini-Griptilian. It goes with me everywhere except customer sites that have a no weapons policy. :cry:

Here it is with my other trusted friend:

My cell-phone with "emergency 911 speed-dialing" enabled.

Just kidding.

Here's my stuff. I don't like carrying a lot so I try to minimize it.

  • XD9SC, either on my belt or in my Smart Carry holster
  • Cellphone, with '9' configured to speed dial 911 (back left pocket)
  • 1/2 ounce pepper spray (front left pocket, with my car keys)
  • Boker switchblade knife w/3.75" blade (front right pocket)
  • Wallet (back right pocket)

Sometimes I carry a Gerber multi-tool on my belt rather than the knife in my pocket. That's only when I expect to need it. The knife is for cutting stuff, but could be a weapon in a pinch. I like the switchblade because I can open it one-handed. It looks like this:

Swil,

Which OC do you carry -- it sounds small, is it??? I had one about the size of the Fox ones I've seen (a roll of quarters) but I just thought it was too bulky and gave it to my mom. I'm looking for something quite a bit smaller that will fit into my pocket without noticing it -- the Fox ones in a front pocket look like you are trying to "account for something", if you know what I mean. :oops: But some of the really small ones seem like (compared to the Fox ones anyways) their BTU's are quite a bit lower. I'm ready to buy a new one so any info. you can give would be helpful.
