What items do you have on your person on a day to day basis? If you choose to list your wallet,phone and or car keys well more power to you,here's mine and it's been like this for as long as I can remember.

Pocket knife-never leave home without one, and it's been this way since I was a boy(except for school or where it's forbidden). Carry a knife purely as a tool

Streamlight penlight

Firearm, from a small pocket pistol to a full size 1911, all depends on what I'm wearing at the time.

If I leave home without any of the items listed above I'm turning around and going back lol.

Come on guys, we need PICS!!!!!

I carry a Filson Medium Field Bag to and from work, so have the advantage of a few pockets.

There is usually a pack of lifesavers or gum in it, but here are my staples:

- Kershaw knife
- Tweezerman clippers
- MW lip balm
- Popov bifold wallet
- Leatherman AAA light (my Fenix lights are for home and camping)
- Zippo tape measure (gift from my wife when we were dating probably 20y ago)
- Sometimes a Leatherman Skeletool

I wear blue jeans 99% of the time so this is what I carry in them.

Left pocket: Car keys, Case pocket knife (small 2-blade) and a Chapstick.

Right pocket: Small pocket wallet for bank and gasoline card, drivers license, insurance papers, and social security card.  Oh, and an Irish worry stone.

Watch pocket: Cellphone

Right rear pocket: Hanky

Shirt pocket: Pipe lighter, pipe tamper, pouch of Prince Albert Pipe Tobacco, and small pocket pipe.

I do not carry this all the time but on occasion I carry a small Seecamp .32ACP pistol in a rear pocket holster.

It's a few years old came with my Skeletool in a Costco pack. It's a Leatherman Monarch 300, 16 lumens, enough for looking at stuff in the car etc.

I must be a minimalist as I don't carry anything with me unless I need some money!  Biggrin  However, all my bike accessories go in my bike bag when commuting to work.

Wallet, car and house keys, small leather coin purse and a watch on my wrist.  No phone and no gun as I don't own either; no knife, bottle opener, screwdriver, multi-tool, flashlight, etc. as I have no need for such items on a regular basis.

I've often wonder about the US guys who carry as its not an option in Canada.

Have you ever needed it or been in a position where you were tempted to draw it? I know it's better to be safe then sorry, but I've never been in that position myself where I thought "I wish I had a gun".

Me neither.  I worked and lived in Houston for 10 years and although many of my friends and work colleagues had handguns and rifles, I never felt the need to have either.  I grew up in Southern Africa during changing times and the only time I carried a firearm, other than in the army, was when I was in the bush.

Have I ever needed my sidearm,as a civilian? FWIW I have been trained with firearms and would never pull the weapon without the lives of myself or my family being in danger. Also a firearm is not an intimidation tool.   My son had just been born and the hospital was in a bad part of town. I really wanted a cigarette so I went to a gas station at like 2 am. A gentleman appeared to be high on cocaine and asked if I had some money. I replied no and went into store. I came back out and when I walked  past the guy again he hit me  in the back of the head with a wine bottle.

Im 6'1 220 this guy was 5'9 buck 50 tops and when he hit me the bottle didn't break , another guy comes out of nowhere and he's trying to grab for my wallet as guy is hitting me with wine bottle. I had a glock right above my wallet inside my waistband and when guy 2 felt my gun or at least I thought he did I just backed up as fast as  I could and shoved 2nd gentleman to the ground. I had enough time to draw and say stop before they were on me again  and they left me no choice

I would have ran, I tried but they gave chase and tried to attack again, they were between me and my vehicle so that was not an option,the people I said help to stood and watched and I have no doubt I would of died that night, I had no chance ce to give up my wallet and had guy 2 got my gun before I believe he would of killed me. Not glamorous at all and I've yet to see why people think weapons make you tough.

I carry for two reasons, I have the license and right to do so and like others have said, it would only leave my pocket to protect my family.  And when I say leave my pocket, I don't mean just for a warning.  I was a Deputy Sheriff back in the 70's and had my formal training at the THP Academy.

No, I've never needed it or been put in a position where I was tempted.  But I would not hesitate for one moment to use it if a member of my family was in danger.
