    Good Lord. You carry all that? I normally carry the M&P .40 either in the kholster or in the fobus or bladetech. I sometimes carry the bladetech double mag holster too, depending on where I am going and how I feel. I also carry an every day pocket knife on my right side for everyday use, and an easy access blade on my weak side positioned for firearm retention. other than that, just wallet and keys with a multitool and flashlight on keychain.

    Now..........if we're talking about EDC bags, that's a whole other can of worms. :-)

    Normally I do.. I don't always holster them though. Sometimes I'll throw the spray in my pocket, and the knife is rarely in it's case. It's usually in my other pocket. I always holster my Taser and Ruger though.

    Excellent system you have.

    The non-lethal tools being available gives you tons more flexibility in responding to a situation.

    Kudos to you, sir.

    Aaron1124, could you resize your photo and repost it so it doesn't distort the forum page to roughly the width of the Mississippi river? Thanks!

    As for what I carry, I start out with my brain - fully functional and engaged. The .45 comes next, and a voice recorder is usually on my belt too. Other things are optional as the occasion or trip might seem to require.
    I will not knowingly initiate force. I am a self owner.

    Let the record show that I did not consent to be governed. I did not consent to any constitution. I did not consent to any president. I did not consent to any law except the natural law of "mala en se." I did not consent to the police. Nor any tax. Nor any prohibition of anything. Nor any regulation or licensing of any kind.

    no no they are not. but i work on call security. so its part of what i have on me anyway. and as an SEO you can carry one while on duty, and on call you have to have your equiptment :-) however if i work per-diem or im not on call i leave it at home :-)


    however i believe the law states something like "no citizen shall carry any device, slapjack, nightstick, ballisong, switchblade or other device deployed in the attack or defense of ones person"............not an exact cite but i couldnt find the actual law but i've seen it on the CCW page for maine govt before.........but bluntly citizens cannot.

    You previously stated you carried your baton in your boot.

    No weapon can be carried concealed by private security guard either - this would include baton.

    "provided that any weapon carried is not concealed."

    In my opinion, if you're going to carry lethal force, do not carry less than lethal. That way, if you draw on/shoot someone, the prosecution cannot use the "you could have just used your taser on him, even though he had a knife and was charging you" excuse, getting some weak jury behind them. With my certifications and training, that would most likely be used against me. Just my .02....carry on.

    Good point Jenshubby! Until society viewsthe person carrying a weapon and defending him or herself as the "victim" instead of the "shooter" when a situation like that occurs, we will always have to protect afterselves after the fact. Too many people become experts on "what they would have done", but only those involved when a situation turns violet, actually know. Better to be safe, than in jail..
