Walther PPS 9mm when the weather is cold and I can conceal, and a Ruger LCP when it's warm.

Wish I had the build to conceal full size pistols. That USP is srs bidness.
I used to have a P7M8. H&K makes good guns.

Hadn't meant this to just be about firearms. Anything that people carry on a daily basis that makes life easier, I would love to know about. I've thought about carrying a mini titanium spork....cause I can. And you never know when you might need to eat something...

And calling one might be about 10 minutes too late.

As an update, I cut a portion of leather off my Crossbreed holster and used a Bic lighter to bend the kydex so it forms around my hip better...now it pulls the handle in closer to my body, has more retention, and is even more comfortable. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but no-one sees it anyway and it works great. Even went on a short mtb ride with it and didn't notice it.

Another Super Tuck user!

I've had a Super Tuck for 2 years now and I love it. It was spendy but worth it. I carry a Glock 27 in it.

One of the screws unscrewed itself from the clip and vanished. I found that a ziptie works pretty well as a replacement. Once you set it up right you don't really need to change it again.

Obviously Canadians can't carry. But we still have options.

A buddy of mine has a skull-crushing walking stick from Cold Steel that he always has with him.

Another buddy keeps a 3' length of thick chain with a goddamned apple-sized padlock on the end of it. It's pretty portable (rolls/folds up into a gym bag or a jacket pocket), intimidating, and potentially lethal. If the cops ask, it's for his bike.

Both are perfectly legal up here. Obviously no match for a pistol of course.

Contra:
Yes, I love mine more and more each day. Mine is horsehide and initially squeaked a bit..but seems to be pretty quiet now (i used a little Ballistol/baby powder/neutral shoe polish to help it along). I was looking at the Stealthgear ONYX...but it's $100 and I find it hard to believe I could get it more comfortable than the Crossbreed is now. I got the holster and belt from Crossbreed's seconds website for a little over $100 for both.

I'll have to remember to Loctite the screws...

Chairborne:
A giant chain/padlock combo sounds pretty damn intimidating...I'm thinking of the one "Rampage" Jackson of Pride/UFC fame wore around his neck. :lol:

I like the walking stick idea, but I don't have a limp (yet). I would love to get a nice dark-red wood walking stick (like dense cocobolo) with a heavy burnished brass ball handle...in anticipation of my future decrepitude.

I always liked the "monkey fist" keychain lanyards with a heavy steel ball bearing inside. That's probably a little more practical if you can't carry a chain around everywhere.

Which model SA 1911 is that? I have the cheapest one they make...the GI .45 WW2 replica version. I should have spent a little extra for the mil-spec with the novac sights....the WW2 sights are TINY.

Nice Dan Wesson! :mrgreen:

The SA is the loaded model, which comes with night sights and ambi thumb safety. Of course it comes no where near the Dan Wesson specialist; I've been on a waiting list to get another one for months.

It's illegal for me to EDC, but if I could, then I would probably go for this, with what little gun knowledge I have:

Well, as far as I know Canadian law on knifes is not as brutal, then the UK is. Here is my everyday carry:

Image

5.5 inches of Cold Steel, and it never runs out of ammo. Carry it in my right pocket, with the very end sticking out with the built in clip, that way it cannot be considered to be a concealed weapon. I forget its even there most of the time, in fact.

Check to make sure that you know what your Canadian knife laws are, as I am no attorney, not to mention that I am in the USA. Even here, its not legal to carry such a fine, edged weapon, in some states and cities, due to its blade length alone. ;)

Indeed so. The M1A1 .30 Caliber Carbine was so loved by lots of WWII and Korean war troops, that the Armed Services decided to update the arsenal with the M-16/AR-15 style rifle. I believe the upper rifle to be an H&K model AR-style rifle, if my old eyes are not deceiving me, possibly a 7.62mm NATO chambered rifle, instead of a .556 NATO caliber firearm?

It was unfortunate that the first AR platform rifle wasn't properly field-tested before it replaced the M-1 Garand-based, Springfield M-14, before it was put into service in Vietnam, but it's a nice rifle too, after 40+ years of modifications, such as the current M-4 model.

The top one was a POF AR style in .308/7.62. It has since been replaced with a FN SCAR.

What caliber is that revolver ? .357 Magnum?

In either case the muzzle brake and the scope have to go, at least during warm months when you cant conceal it well. The scope wont do you a bit of good if the bad guys come a calling as they do in a real hurry.

Be a great range gun the way its setup however. ;)
