    @Prepared One, as for a common load-out, I'm pretty much with your picture. However, I just never liked an IWB holster. I'm slim enough to wear an OWB holster and just cover it with shirttails. This time of year I also wear a denim jean vest, mostly for the wide, deep, inside pockets.

    I'll wear inside or out depending on what I am wearing and the weather. I wear inside more often then not however. I sometimes forget it's there I have done it so long.

    I agree. My issue is that I never want to forget to wear defensive tools. As I've often stated, the city of Madison is no longer that "happy, hippie college town." You can thank the easy-rider trash from Chicago making their way north for that. I will admit that I down-sized my choice in pistols. I started out lugging my 3-inch Kimber .45 ACP and realized that P238 was the handgun I would always carry daily.

    This is my typical load out, I usually have a “normal” chapstick instead of the goofy pink egg, but it is what I had.

    Thinking about all this stuff to keep from thinking about something else, isn’t that what secret police are all about?

    Well, if this is the stuff you actually use/need, I see no problem. Over time I have used most of the stuff, except for the lighter. What I strive to achieve is deciding realistically what I must have. For example, if I have ID, a credit card and some cash, at least one knife and a SW 640 and an HKS, I'm pretty good-to-go even to the mall.

    There's a method to my madness. I think lots of guys pack implements assuming they are going to ensconce themselves and shoot it out. The more practical thing is to grab your wife, check your six and leave the area! I would only pull the trigger in this scenario if I had to stop or dissuade the guy making me run.

    About one hour ago my wife and I left the mall. The only thing open was the cafe' where we bought coffee. As you can guess, the entire strata of mall rats also entered this business, and upon examination they were mostly high school kids. Given that, we finished our coffee, got the free refill, and drove leisurely home.

    Sounds boring, doesn't it? Well, that's also part of being observant. How do you know what's out there if you don't make an honest and succinct visualization of your surroundings? What if some Milwaukee Cripps decided to knock over the only mall business that was open with a cash register full of new money? You wouldn't be able to make a realistic decision if you didn't open your eyes and look.

    I like this mall, it's run by some very honest tradesmen that have become my friends. Social flotsam is going to happen. I also know that MPD make it a regular and in-depth check to ensure the place isn't robbed.

    ...I also know where the exits are located...

    My edc is a 9mm, a buck knife, fire steel and a tin of laundry fluff.

    I have some “extra” stuff that I carry for work. I probably don’t NEED three pairs of gloves and two knives, but I have to touch gross things multiple times a day Andy eyes suck so there is never enough light, so I carry gloves and an extra light. I carried a j frame forever, loved it, but I carry so much in my pockets now that I have to carry IWB, so an auto just made sense. The fixed blade is pure paranoia

    Close! It is the M21-14DSFG. Great knife! You can field dress a deer or speed goat with it if you need to.
    To thine own self be true, might as well be a nerd!
