Current Casual Everyday Carry.

Or as I should say, everyday everyday carry, as I’m not working in a office right now.

I update and change what I carry as experience and training demands. For instance, I’ve recently increased my tactical trauma knowledge, and so carrying an actual tourniquet on me is more of a priority. Also, using the PHLSter skeleton holster for my Shield in a training class and in a few matches has shown me that it’s just not right for me, so I’ve changed up my holster game as well.

Top Row
Bandana, wallet, keys, lighter, 9mm Shield with MagFix baseplate and MagGuts +1 follower.

Middle Row
Pocket Trauma Kit, Carabiner/Key ring, Boker AK-74 knife (top), Sabre Mk6 pepper spray (bottom), Blade-Tech Nano holster, iPhone 7 Plus w/ Hornady RFID tag (more about that chip at a later date).

Bottom Row
SOFT-T-W tourniquet in a Blue Force Gear Ten Speed Rifle Pouch, spare 8 round pistol magazine, Coast HP-1 light (top), SOG Mini Instinct knife, Leatherman PS multi-tool.

And yes, all of this either fits on my gun belt (I’m using a Wilderness Tactical Instructor’s Belt these days) or inside the pockets of my jeans, and all of it conceals with an un-tucked t-shirt (although the gun does print a bit, I must confess). In particular, I really like the Ten Speed pouch for carrying a tourniquet, as it’s about the same size as my pistol reload and a breeze to conceal under my shirt, and the MagGuts follower allows me to have 9+1 in my Shield, which is a nice comforting thought.
