EDC thread. Post what you carry on a daily basis.
Not shown: Kershaw filter pocket knife, forgot it at home
Used to carry a SIG P229 but it's uncomfortable as I sit at a desk most of the day at my job.
2016 and youre still not carrying a TIE Bomber
thats on my pockets +umbrella/book/pen/notepad in backpack
As strange as it may seem I have nothing to do with weed, the one was my old phone the new one is the one that has credit(not sure how its called) due to a student program. I never set getting a smartphone as a priority.
hey nothing wrong with dumbphones, but in 2016 carrying two when dual sim cards are a thing and cheap, seems odd, throws a red flag.
you could even get away with carrying both a smartphone and a dumbphone. but two dumphones is a red flag.
oh shit nigger,,, portuguese here. i feel for you.
on topic though, we had like 133% penetration rate of cell phones in 2000, some people would carry three phones with them one for each operator lol. I think now with cheaper plans it doesn't happen as much.
Get your shit together
I seem to be put of my element here. What is EDC and why do you guys carry so much shit?
I do like the alien gear stuff and it's reviews are pretty good. I will look into gold dots. I bought these at the store I bought the gun at so I could carry it and not have balls in it. My prev setup(still do when OC) is a G22 in a Blackhawk SERPA rig. inb4 serpa leg. I trained on them in the academy. I don't OC as much now.
Every day carry
Very few of these pics are real and you can easily identify which are which aren't.
>>680213894 This is fake for example, nobody Everyday carries a fucking hand grenade
Basically any pic with more than wallet, cellphone, and car keys is a fake
A few. A headshot(while not likely under so much stress) would've been beneficial. We ran 3 center 1 head drills. But I bet that shit would go right out the window. Also I'm willing to bet half those shots didn't connect
>EDC threads are just mini /k/ threads full of people wanting to look cool and edgy by showing a mass of weapons they don't every day carry but pretend they do on 4chan.
True. Like I said earlier. It was what they had and I needed to carry. I'm probably gonna get those gold dots. My boss keeps trying to get me to carry those 60gr 2000 fps civil def rounds. Any word on those?
>needing to carry a gun for self defence
In my country you never need to carry a gun for defence unless you are in a gang, otherwise a gun is a waste of money unless you target shoot or hunt.
I do carry a first aid kit because it's acualy been useful at times but a gun? No I don't live in a crime filled country.
This is all I need with me when I'm out and about.
we both know that condom wont be used and why 2 shitty phones i have a samsung s5 with text only and a phone like your samsung for calls. i have the same knife stopped carrying it because its not reliable get a normal blade mate
Not much more. Why the need to blatantly display to the public you are armed? I carry two knifes but both are easily hidden unless I am using them, usually as a tool to open or cut something
Uhh what victim? The only black guy to approach me was this one Nigerian guy at night who just returned my wallet that fell out of my pack.
The need for a gun here just isn't there byond hunting and collecting, I'm sorry you live in a third world country where you actively need a gun just to feel safe in public.
>No I don't live in a crime filled country
Neither do I, I live in a very low crime area. However I realize that crime exists everywhere, even your country which you must think is a utopia even though it's not.
no way to convince you on the condom thing so i wont try, i explained why two phones on >>680210269
i prefer this knife because its discreet enough it fits in my wallet and as good as i need it for everyday utility.
I don't need it to feel safe, I choose to carry it because I value my life. Police response times can be quite long, and when seconds count, police are minutes away.
Plus in America police have no duty to protect the citizens
With the right holster and belt, I often forget it's even there.
I'd rather have it than not need it than to need it and not have it.
And pocket knives are tools, not weapons. You have to get very close to use them which can be very dangerous. A gun is meant to stop a threat before it gets to you
No shit crime exists, but I would never need a gun to deal with it, I don't live in a war zone nor am I in a gang and I don't live in the United States of mass shootings so shooting and killing another person isn't even an realistic option.
The closest I came to needing a weapon was some homeless guy pulled a knife on me for not giving him money, didn't need a gun than.
Let's look at t like this. Larry gets laid off from the factory and decides it's time to get revenge. He follows his boss around all day with a handgun. His boss goes to Walmart and Larry follows him in. You and your wife and children are in line checking out and Larry decides to draw on boss man right in front of you. Do you just watch this random man die and possibly your family because of the proximity and unreliability of a mad mans accuracy? Or do you prepare and train so that as a responsible gun owner you can effectively neutralize a threat? We have this right and we choose to exercise it. One day you might thank a gun owner. You may never see one get pulled. But it's definitely Bette edit there to be one there when you need it vs not. And this could literally happen anywhere at any time. You never know
Yes in the US I can see why a gun is needed, if I lived in the US I would carry guns everywhere.
But where I live it's not needed, I don't even lock my door unless I'm out.
>Ib4 huur durr you are asking yo be killed
30 years and myself nor any of my friends and family have needed a gun.
Not to mention fire department response time is generally 150% faster than police.
most cities have nearly twice the firefighters as police.
but yet people rely on the police showing up instantly, let alone assuming you can call the police while some shitbird is trying to murder you.
i guess but honestly i rather not even have a gun it would probably cause more problems then solve them depending on where you live and what your job is. if someone is robbing me im giving them my shit even if i have a gun im not going to risk my life over like 500$
>knife =/= hatchet
Also you live in the United States of murder and death YOU need a gun, I do not because I don't live in your corrupted crime filled theocratic nation.
Even the cops will kill you for no reason in the US it's fucked up
>own a gun coz ur scared lel
you bitch about guns because you're scared of them. checkmate atheists
>i dont want a gun so nobody needs a gun
not even american and i think people like you are obnoxious morons. what is wrong with people wanting to have the ability to protect themselves from crime?
I wish more modern societies weren't nanny-state shitholes where we all live as serfs that have to accept whatever criminals choose to do to us, lest we be punished by the law as well.
No I told him to fuck off, he walked closer to me and was tackled by this big black passers-by by because he was an idiot and pulled a knife in the middle of down town on the sidewalk.
It was funny.
If I was alone I would have felt threatend but I avoid those situations anyway.
I don't need a gun, I choose to have it
And cops don't kill you just because. Sure we have some bad ones like every country has, but the vast majority of people killed by cops here deserved it because they either pulled a weapon on a cop, acted like they were pulling a weapon, or were trying to run them over in cars or some shit
I don't live in the US, Americans need guns because they are probably going to get shot or murders no matter where they go but I don't live in your crime filled corrupt hell hole.
>implying only police and PSD's are allowed to neutralize would-be shooters
>implying gun owners haven't been waiting for this moment for all their lives
Is that really what your state approved media tells you?
Yeah, so many children die from guns here
Ya I believe in the 2nd amendment right to carry, but why do you carry it everywhere? Honest question. Do you live in a dangerous part of the USA? Im American, lived in various areas, some safe, some dangerous but never really felt the need to carry a gun. Is a "rights" thing? Do you feel unsafe? Has something happened in the past? I generally don't feel unsafe here, thats why I'm asking.
Awww yeah. Unfortunately forgot my Spyderco Bali-Yo
Why because I lI've in a developed country and you are jeleous I can walk around at night without getting murders or mugged abd I can leave my doors unlocked without getting home invaded?
No and if I was alone it would have been different, point is I didn't need to shoot him, if i was alone i would have givrn him a 20 and left, if this had happend in the US that guy would have been shot and killed.
do you have a nuclear shelter? Russia could nuke us at any moment . do you have a bullet proof vest? you could get sniped at any moment. do you have a plan on how to survive another ice age? no because the chances of these things happening are so god damn low its not worth carring about exactly like a situation where you will need your gun
I've been assaulted by dindus before, still don't feel the need to carry a firearm. In my assault had had a gun, it either would have not helped or I would end up getting shot myself. Why do you feel so unsafe at all times?
Absolutely fucking wrong, moron. Quit believing anti-gun propaganda and actually do some research. Anti-gunners are some of the biggest liars on the face of the planet.
See the line in this graph, that is the average. These are all the "industrialized nations" according to the UN small arms survey.
More guns correlates with less murder. That is official UN data.
I'm in America and I never lock my doors. I also live in a rural area with a very low dindu population. That doesn't mean they're not in the hood in town and that they won't venture into my neck of the woods. But they won't get very far if they're up to no good.
>no because the chances of these things happening are so god damn low its not worth carring about exactly like a situation where you will need your gun
Actually defensive gun uses in America are quite common. Often times they aren't even fired, just the fact that they are there or displayed can stop an attacker
According to the largest stody on guns ever conducted in the United States, funded entirely by Obama's executive order :
Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year…in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008"
>INB4 is was a biased and rigged study
It was setup by Obama himself to get lots of anti-gun propaganda data. You've never heard of it because it turned out to be full of pro-gun data so the democrats swept it under the rug and pretend it never happened.
I for one, definitely have a problem with gin
DO you even watch the news? How can anyone say the chances of having to defend yourself in public is nil anymore? Doesn't matter where you live. Most mass shootings happen in well off places. I bet those people in that movie theater just knew that nothing was going to happen to them that day. Those Amish girls hadn't even fathomed that something was going to happen that day. No one ever thinks that anything is ever going to happen to them. Chances are, yes, nothing will ever happen to me. But if it does, I'm going to give myself a chance.
I didn't say black. I said dindus. They come in all colors. Gang violence is literally why our gun deaths are so high. Be it bloods crips Latin Kings outlaws or hells angels. That shit is where the rates are really coming from. Not guns in and of themselves.
Watch this video.
Do some fucking research you idiot.
>chances of being killed with a gun in the US over say, the UK, much higher in US.
>chances of being murded by other means in the UK over the US, much higher.
per capita, you are more likley to be murdered in the UK, than in the US. Just it's usually by bladed or blunt objects.
you're just talking out of your ass, you spastic mongoloid. stop watching the history channel all day and go outside.
I'm going to have to defend them here. It has to do with the necessity of objects in a given situation. If you some how fall into the water.. most people can swim. Life-jacket may help in turbulent water, but not a circumstance that could happen 'any time.' A gun however, is a necessary tool in case someone tries to mug or carjack you.. which does happen.
Someone hasn't been watching the news lately. Dipshit. The hells angels and the outlaws are having the largest gang war in existence right now. They're even blowing shit up at bike rallies.
In oct 2015 the banditos(outlaw) and the Cossacks(HA associated) had a huge shootout in Waco. The cops intervened but it got pretty bloody. And there have been bombings. And all MC gangs have direct ties to either Outlaws or Hells Angels. Do your fucking homework. Also Google biker gang explosion. There have been a few bombings.
Same guy. They are all connected to the two similar to how most black gangs are either blood or crip related. And the Mexicans are the wild cards but they all pretty much work for the various cartels. Also I've never been to pol. Is it nice?
Not a lot has changed gents
>The cops intervened but it got pretty bloody
The cops are the ones that killed the most people, and then did a massive cover up about it
They basically mag dumped into a crowd of people after they heard a few pops
Didn't say clubs did I. There have been many more. And just the fact that you mentioned clubs leads me to believe that you either have no fucking clue what you're talking about, or you're in a club and you're one of those mom n pop weekend riders that do charity rides and talk out your ass like you're some hardcore biker.
no, detective poop dick. you want to pretend motorcycle clubs contribute significantly to the number of annual firearm related deaths, and they don't.
I love being the person these pictures make fun of.
>inb4 everyone assumes my knives are intended for self-defense
I carry them as tools, not weapons. Anyone who carries a folding knife as crime deterrent is a fool
>do you ride a motorcycle?
Wish I could say yes, but nope.
>what do you do?
I actually just work in Lumber at Home Depot, I'm just a faggot who lokes to be over-prepared at all times
>In or about 2006, there were about 60 million (actually closer to 58M, but we’ll use the rounded-up number to be kind to hopolophobes) people in the UK as a whole, including Scotland.
>In England and Wales alone — discounting Scotland — there were over 163 thousand knife crimes.
>By the end of 2006, there were more than 300 million people in the US as a whole.
In the US as a whole, there were fewer than 400 thousand gun crimes.
>In the UK, based on these numbers, there was one knife crime committed for every 374 people (rounded down).
>In the US, based on these numbers, there was one gun crime committed for every 750 people — less than half a gun crime per 374 people (about 0.4987 gun crimes per 374 people, actually).
>That means that, based on these statistics, you are more than twice as likely to be a victim of knife crime in the UK as you are to be a victim of gun crime in the US.
you make a claim and present no evidence. i'm not going to google and post things to prove you wrong. i come here for entertainment, not to educate retards. i want you to leave here as dumb as you arrived.
The source you're using is obviously just some random pro-gun guy, and not an unbiased data collection or statistical analysis body, that is looking at the data objectively.
The actual data that he uses is cherry picked to agree with his argument, and to top that off he has no idea how to read, interpret or apply statistical data properly anyway.
This is like asking McDonalds if their burgers are good for you, and accepting they are because they cite you a study on the nutritional value of lettuce.
Guys, can't we get along?
i always order my burger without lettuce because mexico is a filthy country. they use poop water to feed the baby lettuces, and then they grows up to have E coli. i don't like E coli.
Nice, thinking of picking up a forty myself since its election year, in case of a panic it seems there's always .40 on the shelves.
