@Wyzyrd i like the moleskin, any one know if a moleskin with all weather type pages, I've added a write in rain note pad to my EDC but I'd love to find something that looks "cooler".

I have a cool leather "sleeve" for my mini moleskines by Rustico- I have the Orbitor model, i'll upload a pic tomorrow.

This is my normal EDC. I live by rule 9. Never go anywhere without a knife. I also carry my Gerber, ferro rod, lighter, magnifying glass and a firearm. Also, remember the type of clothing that you wear is also important. You do not want to end up in the deep woods with just a tee shirt, shorts and tennis shoes. Or find yourself without a jacket in the winter. 

I agree CG. Ive seen plenty of those types; likely tourists or recreationists. Sadly, Ive also only seen one group and that was a mile from Table Rocks summit and it was a group of women. That day was also when I encountered my first bear; pulled my sheath knife out and got in front of the women. It was all I had that day and I was thanked. Luckily, the bear did not charge or I would have had a serious fight. Be mindful that communications is important as well....cell signal is not present in areas. Best to have some type of good long distance radio.

hi everyone, have you heard of EDC tactical writing pens?

I hadn't until I wrote an article about them the other day at the content company I work for. I'm not posting this to advertise at all. I just thought the pen was pretty cool. They are called Tactical Pens and made of aircraft aluminium with a glass breaking tool build into the design. The ones I wrote about were made as a EDC tool for self defense or writing. Very cool and nice looking writing pen.

What i typically carry.

 

Or rather, a pool of stuff i pick from20171031_163936.thumb.jpg.5052c19eeb87aac1de94eb9e0c5fdbce.jpg

 

The holsters directly under the handguns are safariland ALS's, for a glock 19 w/ TLR-1, and a walther PPQ.

 

Not big on open carry, but the shop i work at likes it when employees OC.

 

If I'm not working, i almost always carry the Walther PPQ in an aliengear. I didn't get a light bearing holster (or even look for one) because I didn't like how the light sat so far forward. Normally at work, I carried the G19 because it works so well with lights, and finding a good light bearing holster was easy, but i shoot so well with the PPQ i carry it a lot too.

 

The PPQ in the safariland also hides better when a shirt is pulled over it.

 

One spare mag in left pocket.

 

Kershaw leek

 

Surefire g2x

 

Wallet

 

Cell phone (not pictured)

 

Belt is a magpul Tejas El Burro gun belt. It's a PITA to put on and take off, but once you get it, and a hoster on it, it's like they are JB welded in place

yap.. those pens are interesting, i suppose they're as concealed as concealed carry will ever be.. i purchased one for daily use a couple of months back.. it was great for quick scribbles but gets a tad too heavy for longer use.. i suppose though it depends on the tactical pen, some reviews state info regarding weight and weight distribution relative to both its use as a writing and defending instruments.. unfortunately i lost it on one of my commutes.. i replaced it with a fisher cap-o-matic for daily use and purchased another tac-pen for when i go to places which wont allow me to carry pocket knives.. 

its a great addition to any edc kit if you ask me, nice alternative or pairing for what you may already have with you.. prices differ also.. i just went for the one that didn't hurt the budget..

The only "tactical pen" I ever found halfway decent in terms of comfort was the CRKT Williams pen- rather large and pointy but light & comfy enough to be viable as a daily driver.
