This is my EDC as of late, almost exclusively. It’s been a while since I’ve been this satisfied with my carry system, which is partially why I’ve not been as active. There’s almost no room for improvement by my standards. This holster and gun combo disappears for me, even better than my shield (which is a much smaller gun.) The G10 Colonel Blades NoViz knife weighs less than its sheath. The @shield.arms mag extension is as good as it gets. And that @minutemandefense mag caddy... there’s just no better caddy on the market! It even came with a foam insert so you can switch between stock and extended lengths. The @surefire_llc Stiletto is perfection, and nothing seems better suited to EDC than the @leathermantools Skeletool. Although their new tools look really tempting.
Thought for the day: if you think carrying a gun means you don’t need to carry a defensive blade, you have to believe physical fitness and hand to hand skills aren’t necessary either. You either accept a self defense situation can become a zero distance scenario or you live in make believe land. I don’t blame people for choosing make believe land though. I hear it’s nice. • @tatargets@primarymachine@meridianordnance@lunarconcepts@firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a friendly reminder: if you carry a gun and have to use it, it’s because someone else is trying to you. If you aren’t going to rely on the police to protect you, why would you rely on EMS to save you? Carry medical. These pocket trauma kits from @ltcreed are a great way to get into it. You’ll have to experiment with how to carry it, but you had to do that when you started carrying a gun too right? If you wanna pick one up “CANETUCKEECARRY” saves 15%. I don’t get paid from that code, but I do get an occasional first aid kit #transparency@tatargets@primarymachine@email@example.com@meridianordnance
The SRO. Here’s my 2 cents. First off, my uneducated guess is this is another Glock 19x. It’s something developed for the military that has been released to civilians to cash in. If I remember right, the Delta Point Pro is the Army’s red dot of choice for handguns. The SRO is obviously Trijicon’s take on a big window reflex optic for handguns, something the military clearly prioritizes. The things people preferred about the DPP over the RMR are addressed. If I want a big window red dot, I’ll get an SRO over the DPP sight unseen. Trijicon > Leupold. That being said, I have zero interest in this. • Why? The bigger window is pointless. If you’re loosing the dot your fundamentals are wrong and you’re using the dot wrong. I’m not qualified to state that but I’m also right. First off, you don’t look at the dot. You look at the target and put the dot on the target. That’s the biggest advantage to using a red dot. You’re target focused, not sight focused. In a defense situation, chances are you won’t be looking at the sights. You’ll be laser focused on the threat, like our bodies are designed to do when we’re in danger. So if you’re fundamentals are good, meaning you naturally point on target or close to it, you won’t be searching for the dot and you won’t need a bigger window to find it. Every time you shoot, the dot disappears but should drop right back on target if you have proper recoil management skills. That not happening for you? Time to get to work and improve these basic skills. If you think an bigger window will fix it, you’re in for an expensive let down. • The other reason I’m not interested is the window . The biggest drawback of the DPP is its hood doesn’t stand up to drops nearly as well as the RMR. No optic does. Trijicon patented the RMR hood and thus everyone else has to be second best. Well the SRO has the same hood as everyone else and I fully expect it to fail drop tests like every other optic. • The bottom line is this optic wasn’t designed for EDC. It’s clearly made for competition and military purposes. I’m sure it will be the best in the biz in its category. Now make a RMRc already @trijicon !
I just can’t... I’m so let down by Trijicon. I’m sure it’s a smart business decision, MHS and whatnot. I just really want a mini RMR so I can mount it on my 48.
Let’s talk pocket knives. A good utility knife is essential for EDC. There’s nothing wrong with carrying high end blades, free country and whatnot. For me, I don’t like to carry anything above the $70 mark, and generally I stay well below that. Why? Utility blades are for utility tasks. They get disrespected. They get used. They do tasks they maybe weren’t designed for. I’d rather my $30 @opinelofficiel take that abuse than my $400 @traylorknifeworks . I’ve honestly thought about switching to a box cutter style with replaceable blades. So what utility blade do you carry?
What happened to Colonel Blades? I’ve been asked that question a lot lately. I wish I had a definite answer to give you, but what I’ve been told from a secondary source is they are doing some restructuring and will be back. I hope that’s the truth and they aren’t gone for good. Their blades are my favorite for self defense. • @primarymachine@tatargets@firstname.lastname@example.org@recycledfirefighter@meridianordnance#edc#pocketdump#everydaycarry#glock#g48#recycledfirefighter#surefire#colonelblades#fixedblade#knife#knifelife#folder#opinel#stumpdump#kentucky
Gotta love consistency. This is the 4th gun I have a holster for from @txcholsters across 3 gun brands and 4 different holster models. They have all been exceptional. Let’s be honest, there are a lot of really good holster makers out there. It can be overwhelming when making a decision especially if you haven’t had a chance to try one out. So when you find a holster you like, it’s nice to know the rest of their holsters are at the same level instead of having differing levels of retention and fit based on the different gun and holster models. • If you want to pick up a TXC holster, “CANETUCK10” saves 10%. I don’t get paid from that, but I do get an occasional free holster. #transparency • @shield.arms@tatargets@primarymachine@apextactical@meridianordnance@glockinc@ltcreed@recycledfirefighter
First day carrying the @glockinc 48, and I didn’t get kilt in the streets. I definitely notice the weight and width differences. Going from my P10c or my 9c to this feels significant, but without all the sacrifices you typically make with smaller guns. So far I’m digging it, a lot. • Also, check out this rig @minutemandefense sent me. I’ve used his mag caddy for a while now (it’s the best!) This 48 holster is on that same level. Definitely worth checking out! • @tatargets@email@example.com@ltcreed@meridianordnance@apextactical@glockinc@trijicon
I’m exhausted. Every day I see people inciting violence on each other because they see things differently. There is no common ground any more. There is no unity based on our shared humanity. Don’t get me wrong, I a conservative libertarian. I definitely have strong opinions about how things should be done. But I know I’ve got it wrong before. I know I’ve made the wrong choice (I was an NRA member for 12 months.) I know I will again. How can I condemn someone for their decisions as if I had never made any? Actions have consequences, but that’s not what I’m talking about. If it wasn’t for people being patient and helping me grow and learn, I’d still be stuck in those wrong decisions. It’s time for us to remember that. It’s time to agree to disagree and still accept each other. Until that starts happening on a large scale again, things are only going to get worse. And on a personal note, if you call yourself a Christian but act like that, you need to reread what Jesus taught. You can’t cuss out someone on the internet and have bible quotes in your bio and expect anyone to take you seriously.
