It has hydrolix moisture wicking technology and keeps the sweat out of my eyes while hacking in hot server closets.
fuck off amerifat, this is a technology board. this is not at all related to technology. you also don't carry any of that shit around except your keys wallet and phone so just fucking leave
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Here's my EDC: Phone, keys, wallet
Sometimes I'll take a knife if there's any chance I'll actually end up using it.
Anybody who carries more than this is just fucking autistic
eh, at work or a friends house sometimes a knife is needed for opening a box or some shit. It's easier to just grab the knife than it is to look around for one or try to open shit with just hands, and knives take up barely any space.
It is my favorite book, glad you are liking it.
The ThinkPad is an X230, I would use one of my libreboot compatible machines, like my x60 or t400, but I really need that battery life to get through a whole day.

pic related, it's the [barely] men behind the pictures
justify carrying two knives, two screwdrivers, an ereader, a flashlight, a watch, a laptop, and a gun everywhere you go for me.
Or an mp3 player, laptop, and a book if that's easier for you.
these are just entirely unnecessary things to carry with you everywhere you go
this is good, but what do you need all the pens/pencils/sharpies for? also why the three flash drives every day?
I only have one screwdriver, the weatherman has a lot of useful things, primarily the pliers. I like to read on my breaks. Flashlight for seeing shit in the dark, situational. Gun for self defense.
>thinks it's normal to get into fist fights past the age of 18
>thinks that he can beat off multiple attackers, handle getting jumped, or get attacked by someone armed with his bare hands
Europoor logic everyone. You'll need to try harder m8.
>real men use their hands
Yuro fag here. This is a very bad trolling attemp and shows that your fat ass never has been into a fight. With your fists you can't do shit in a real self defense scenario.
Muggers are mostly in a group so if you start swinging you will probably end up in a coma or dead.
>try next time
I thought yours had a screwdriver too, mine has a flat and a Phillips head
>I like to read on my breaks
Phones have ereaders
>Flashlight for seeing shit in the dark, situational
Phones have flashlights
> Gun for self defense.
Depending on where you live, this is entirely fair
Is that the reason for the memory sticks, or the pens?
I remember having to carry around a sharpie, a pen, and a pencil when I was pulling wire
Meant leatherman. It does have a screwdriver but the Wiha I use has more bits, star and hex specifically. Reading on eInk is much nicer than reading on AMOLED. The flashlight was military issue and I've just kept it to use. Why not have it just in case? It's small.
I know this is bait, but before anyone starts slapping this guy on the back, I feel the need to point out what should be painfully obvious to anyone with a conscience and some appreciable level of reasoning; that not everyone is on an even keel. A fit-as-hell 140 pound woman stands no chance against a flabby 250 pound male. Old people cannot stand their ground against the young. People with any form of weakness are at a disadvantage to anyone without. It's fallacious to say "real men use their hands" when not even men are equals in a fist fight, let alone anyone who isn't an experienced, fit, trained male brawler, and anyone who uses this argument has very blatantly never been in a fight, it's /g/, this should be obvious. Because anyone who's been in a fight knows you want to end it as soon as possible.
And how to do that? Have an advantage. Can I carry an extra 30 pounds of bicep in my pocket? Can I quickly gulp a kickboxing experience potion before a fight? No. But I can carry something that equalizes any fight for my life and in most cases gives me the decided advantage.
You'd better believe I'm going to pick life over death.
Step one is using your head and avoiding the fight to begin with. If that fails, step two isn't devolving into fisticuffs like an ape.
>Reading on eInk is much nicer than reading on AMOLED.
Very true, I generally just listen to audiobooks nowadays. I'd highly recommend checking them out, very enjoyable if you find a good reader.
>The flashlight was military issue and I've just kept it to use. Why not have it just in case? It's small.
Sure, why not.
> Wiha I use has more bits, star and hex specifically
Why do you need these every day, tho?
It was bait, but I think that your rationalization hides the real, underlying motivation for a lot of the /pol/ grain of gun-nuts. People might say it's about defending yourself, but realistically, unless you live in inner city Detroit, the likelihood of you being a victim of extreme public violence is unlikely.
Most /pol/-type gunfags have this imaginary world of big scary black men that they want to shoot while simultaneously wanting edgy tools of violence to feel generally powerful. It's a pathetic mix of power fantasy mixed with oppression fantasies, so called race-realism and schizoid paranoia. They may publicly profess muh-logic reasons for having a gun, but deep down they are constantly assailed by fantasies of defending themselves from rabid, overtly animalized, impoverished minority men.
It's about weedy, idiot savants and regular idiots fulfilling their imaginary masculinity via a prop.
>the likelihood of you being a victim of extreme public violence is unlikely.
M8 would you rather not have to use it 99.9% of the time and have one on you or have to use it that 0.1% of the time and not have one?
Why take chances when what you're protecting is something of infinite value like your own life or the life of your loved ones. Not the poster you responded to, but I know I'll probably never need to draw my gun and I sure as all heck home I never have to but that doesn't mean that I don't consider my wife and myself worth carrying on the minuscule chance I need it.
I think that certainly some people carry for the reasons you say, but discrediting everyone for those reasons isn't very valid.
>likelihood of you being a victim of extreme public violence is unlikely.
I know this is going to be hard to believe because you've been brought up with a certain way of thinking and you've been locked into it all your life without respite, but to some people "unlikely" is not low enough for comfort.
Also nobody said anything about black anything, you racist. You don't always have to devolve to the lowest rung for every argument, you can actually have a logical, non-emotional discussion every once in awhile.
Also, that's some ace level emasculation projection you've got there. You don't want to take people's penises away too, do you?
0.1% of the time is probably a misrepresentation of the statistics. There are plenty of things far more preventable that you do not prepare yourself for. Fantasies of violence are just part of American culture, but it's a fucking disease.
Literally more paranoid than a tinfoiler.
Get the fuck out.
Guns is a /k/ thing, nobody fantasizes about killing the "big bad black man" you nigger.
>UK is literally the violent crime capitol of Europe
>gun murder rate hasn't changed one bit since banning handguns and heavy restrictions
>>UK is literally the violent crime capitol of Europe
>>gun murder rate hasn't changed one bit since banning handguns and heavy restrictions
but at least I'm not scared enough to go out buy a gun and carry it with me to feel safe
>content with being cucked by your government and denied your natural right to self defense from enemies forigen and domestic and not limited to inferior or outdated arms
I'm not scared of anything when carrying a gun. Especially since I travel through shady hoods.
but anon, I can buy a gun. I've never been stopped and searched I chose not to because I feel perfectly safe without one, I live on a chav filled shithole estate and I feel safe without a gun because I'm not some paranoid delusional faggot whos thinks everyones out to get him
Nexus 5, wallet, headphones, cardkey, lint.
I've never had a situation where I needed a knife that grabbing a random pen couldn't solve. I haven't even seen a gun in the past year. I feel safe and happy.
>muh boy scouts motto
as much as like being prepared for eventualities, never felt as if i would have been safer with a gun on me. but maybe it's different where you guys live.
i still like guns though.
but anon, I can put on my seatbelt. I've never been stopped and cited I chose not to because I feel perfectly safe without it, I live in a weaboo filled shithole estate and I feel safe without a seatbelt because I'm not some paranoid delusional faggot whos thinks anything could ever go wrong.
Tbh no non-automatic firearm will defend you from a 10+ gang. If you injure or kill one or even a few, the rest will tear you to pieces even more as they will be enraged to avenge their cohorts. You should either avoid them altogether or run otherwise.
I'd take a picture of my daily carry, but that'd be a waste of time.
My bank card
around $20 cash/coins
Not once have I thought "I wish I had a ______ on me" at any point in the past 10 years.
All I can say is that some of you must have massive fucking pockets and some interesting daily activities...
Fuck yourself with a cactus you hillbilly piece of shit. I hope you first to the gas chambers if furor trump gets elected. Fuck you for being the right wing sheep walking into the slaughter house you are the reason the us is nothing more than violent arrogant fat kid. Your EDC was nice though.
lel I see the cuck lord merkel has you fags begging the mudslimes and shitskins to stop raping your women.
At least when they start up conscription again euro women will have the migrants to keep them warm :^)
>Walk 10 yards to kitchen
>Take knife from knife block
Done. Saved you from buying, remembering, carrying and using an awkward and dangerous item which is illegal in most developed countries.
Your noservice euro is showing. No one who has ever served in a military would claim such a thing. Single shots, aim and fire. Special forces nearly never use full auto, and regular army are trained to only when suppressing, never for visible targets.
Go spout your sensationalist leftist buzzword claptrap elsewhere.
Unless you go hunting, camping, fishing or something similar there is absolutely no logical reason to carry a knife around with you every day.
It's how you are perceived.
NOOOO. No no no no.
Not being a dink here but this clearly shows you have never been in the military and don't understand squad-level tactics at all or why automatic gunfire was 'invented' (a more apt thing to say is: why automatic gunfire is used).
Do you seriously think that anyone who isn't a retarded Murrikan Marine just pulls the trigger without any real regard for what they are aiming at? That they just fire almost blindly?
You're a fucking moron. Suppressive fire is supposed to hit any targets that emerge from behind their cover. You have to be just as accurate as you would at any other time.
Jesus Christ you're dumb. Automatic weapons are made for more that one opponent. It's when you have 2 or 3 at close distance and don't have time to aim and fire single shots. You just squeeze the trigger and spray into them all.
Actually he's right.
Close combat, one-on-one.
Close combat, multiple opponents
Close combat, single opponent
Mid distance, multiple opponents
>Scoped rifle (sniper rifle)
Long distance, single opponent
Pretty basic stuff, clearly neither of you have been in the military.
>Thinking it matters that you miss when you have less than 2 seconds to react and 3 motherfuckers facing you with guns
If I fire 30 rounds in 5 seconds and only 10 of them hit my targets, I'd be pretty happy with that outcome faggot.
Guns I can see why they would get butthurt over, but the knives confuse me.
I find it strange that there are people out there that don't carry at least a small swiss army knife. A good blade is one of the most useful tools ever.
As a non American firearms enthusiast, could someone plead explain to me the need to carry pistols and multiple mags on you all the time?
I get the expression of freedom, but like... Tons of countries have this right.
People like to carry in case the need arises for a gun.
Extra mags are for the unlikely event that the magazine in your gun fails for some reason.
Or if you're tacticool, extra mags are for when there's lots of people shooting at you
I don't carry, for the record.
A gun is the most effective means to stop a threat from an attacker.
You don't need a fire extinguisher until you really need a fire extinguisher, just like you don't need a gun until you REALLY need a gun
Is America seriously that dangerous?
I've only been to the northern, and western states, and the only time I felt I needed to carry was in North Dakota, because every white trash meth head had a pistol on hip, and shotgun in the truck window
>Is America seriously that dangerous?
No not really. I've never had to use it, and I never want to but I still choose to carry since I have the option and the ability. If I ever have to use it I'll be damn glad I have it.
Plus, with the right holster it can be quite comfortable to the point where I don't think about having it on me.
Well damn. Finally some cool anons that finally explain their reasoning.
Also, I'm a Canadian aboriginal, and open carry a Bowie, so I understand your view >>52445332
I just personally find most americans to be a little over the top, and I was genuinely interested
I don't feel it's that dangerous, and don't carry, though like any place on earth there's some sketchy places.
The main reason I don't carry is that I don't feel comfortable having my pistol on day-to-day, I'm not comfortable with that yet.
I do have a carry permit though.
>Literally afraid of knives
technically it's a "knife" but it's dull as fuck and I rarely use it. It's usually the pliers and saw that get work (and the saw only because one side of it is a rasp/file)
>>Literally afraid of knives
not that guy but I've had cheap knives give me cuts a few times when I reached into my pocket to just get my phone or keys or whatever, and it was sitting half-open. Same for cheap knives closing on my hand when I didn't intend it, or slipping, or whatever else. I don't know why people would carry around big knives anyway, it's not like they're ever useful in the city. Even if you need to "open a box", you can usually use a key or a pen or some shit. Even a box cutter or small awl-like knife is more sensible than some big butterfly knife or w/e
The only reason to carry around a big knife is insecurity. That's it. You may as well go whole hog and just carry a telescoping baton.
I don't have any screws or nuts around that are the right size. One of the pins is replaced, though.
I also ripped out one half of the tools in it since there were 3 (three) flathead screwdrivers and a bottle opener and awl in it, so I just took the screwdrivers out (fuck it i'll use a dime or the tip of the saw or something) and plan on replacing it with a DIY'd up LED light when I can find some button cells laying around to use. Maybe rigging up a little solar panel from a calculator to it for recharging if I can get a rechargeable button cell out of something.
I need more scrap in my house. And more tools in general. I want to DIY tons of stuff but I always run into a lack of everything because I'm poor a f
I was being a dick about it since he mentioned illegality in some places.
That's a fair point though.
The knife I have on my keyring is similar to this one, but less serrations and tacti-cool. OAL 5.5", Blade length is 2.5". I'm looking to replace eventually, but it's served me faithfully for about 10 years.
>all that donald trump shit
>drive a jap car
why do i even bother coming to these threads
more close-minded simpletons do not exist
Last resort, sidearm, alternatively
>hurr I'm a cowboy
>muh draw time
I have enough ammo to last, I have cover for when I need to reload, I want my target to have a lot of holes in it, quickly
Tbh its main trade off is ranged accuracy decreasing significantly without something acting to reduce recoil.
Sniping, counter sniping, mid-long range
>big sniper rifles
Shooting (unaware or unmoving) targets from long-extreme ranges
You're gonna have less than 2 seconds to react and at a 33% hit rate, you'd better have all 10 land in the first 2 seconds (already we're 4 seconds where the 3 targets are have 6x the opportunity to land an incapacitating shot)
some people are involved in careers where they have to have a screwdriver and knife handy because they have to always be somewhere else and the average office doesn't have tools lying around. that doesn't mean you're some greasemonkey, you could be replacing high end equipment that is screwed in.
Do you have this sort of job?
then it would make sense to invest in a multitool
Then you don't need one.
Are you guys really this fucking stupid? I can understand the gun hate, but jesus christ, every time with the multitool hate.
No, America isn't crazy dangerous. There are places where it's dangerous to go, but you have to almost seek them out in high population areas. If you are there then you wouldn't question the need to carry, but that demographic generally don't browse /g/.
Firearms is seen as a right in rural areas. These people (generally) grew up around guns, and have been taught how to use them as a tool.
I really don't see a problem with gun ownership in America. It's thick into American culture. We have a huge Military population, and a lot (maybe most? Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, Hamilton, I can easily name 15 off the top of my head) of our historical figures were military. Not to mention we have shit tons of land, which lends to the cowboy culture.
If your in Europe, when your country's historical figures are either Artist or Nazi's, I guess it might be some culture shock.
Kind of an odd thing to zero in on since knives have practical value outside of self-defense. Like if you're in a car accident and your seatbelt is stuck, or someone else's is, you can be a hero and save them.
>all these posters trying to refute an accurate as fuck DUBS post
Kek i have that same knife and its so shit whenever i actually tried using the knife sharpener it just cut into the metal and made the other knife duller... Although I do like the point on the bottom. Used it on a can the other day and it was quite satisfying.
Why do you need gun, knife and multitool? And do you really just carry kindle and laptop in your hands/pockets? Why do you need to carry laptop every day anyway?
iPod, phone and laptop. Why not just carry phone?
Why do you need so many pens? And what even is that thing on the left? Why do you need it on daily bases?
Again do you really carry laptop with you to store and shit? If not it's not EDC
I like your optimism
You really carry PSVita (of all devices) with you wherever you go?
What is the wood blank with the holster?
look at him and laugh, shame this man for being so retarded

>Again do you really carry laptop with you to store and shit? If not it's not EDC
How do you define EDC, then ?
EDC stands for every-day carry, aka. shit you carry with you on a daily basis.
I don't carry pic related if I just go to the grocery store, but I sure as shit carry it with me to work on my daily commute because I need these things throughout the day.
Are you just not familiar with the concept of leaving your house for anything other than grocery shopping ?
lol shit loadout just started out at life
How are those larger sony buds? I was looking at either those or the JVC FXZ's with the stream drivers
For your keys to be of any use, an address or at the very least a name or phone number needs to go with them.
Though I can see why you'd be paranoid about this since you live in the country where "school" is synonymous with "shooting range." :^)
>the likelihood of you being a victim of extreme public violence is unlikely
yeah, and the likelihood of the NSA sifting through your hard drives is unlikely but you still encrypt them you stupid fuck
If you want to talk about "needs" then you're on the wrong board. Nobody really needs 99% of the shit posted here. It's just nice to have or handy at best. That's exactly what a knife is. You never know when you're going to need one, and they're small as fuck so why not have one?

Not an iPod, it is a FiiO. Also, I need to laptop for programming, which I am sure as hell not going to do on my phone, and the FiiO can hold more music and has a better DAC/amp than my phone does.>>52453218
If an intruder really wants to get in, yes, they will.
I'm not saying you shouldn't lock your doors, but I don't think you understand that a lock is more of a deterrent than proper security.
A locked door makes it inconvenient for someone to get in, meaning that Tyrone from the ghetto 3 blocks over is less likely to break into your house on a whim because getting through a locked door takes time and/or effort.
Now if someone really wants to break in ? Your locks don't mean jack shit. That someone brought the tools to get in regardless.
And if someone manages to pair a low-quality picture of your keys posted on an anonymous imageboard with your name and/or address, I think you have bigger issues to worry about than that guy breaking into your house.
>come to these threads hopefully for some good ideas for keychain attachments or organization
>always bitching about knives and guns
I just want some cool keychain stuff and all there is is bitching, hell half the time if someone posted a multitool rather than a knife this wouldn't even be an issue
eurocucks can't have guns so they get very vocal about their asspains.
I'm too lazy to edit this image, but replace the ps logo with a gun, replace the fox with a drooling europoor, and replace the gimp logo with a butterknife
Wow, how'd I miss this post?
I won't make fun of you like the others anon. I'm sure you feel dumb already.
That is a seat belt cutter, not a knife sharpener. Before it was ruined, you could use it to zip through seat belts to escape a car quickly.
And that is a window/glass breaker, not a can puncher. Again you would use it to escape a car quickly; hold the knife in a balled fist with the nub at your palm and give the window a whack with the tip. Any piece of tempered glass (like a car window) will shatter completely.
Now get a new one so that both features will work.
i carry a knife with me every day and i use it every day. i use it to cut and open things. it's not for self defense. what kind of jobs do you all have where you just need a phone and wallet?
>unless you live in inner city Detroit
I live on 14 mile near I-75.
The fact that I have a Michigan CPL and was carrying probably saved my life back in 2013. Some gangsta that was about 2 feet taller than me tried to force his way into my vehicle.
Criminals can drive from bad neighborhoods to good ones. Fuck off with your nogunz bullshit.
Do everyone a favor, use that gun and end it, fag.
>Reach into pocket
Bonus: I can also use it to fix my fingernails, shave, drive small screws, and a whole bunch of other shit.
I'd hate to see what shithole you live in where knives are banned.
Sketchy shit in general. Up here in VT, I've had people try to jump infront of my car, or stop me from leaving parkinglots when I'm the only one around. I vaguely remember some shit a friend told me about Tennessee, but not well enough to post it.
if everyone carried weapons, what are the alternatives to the situation that happened?
1. a bloodbath
2. everyone having the (subliminal) fear to get shot, no matter something happens or not
3. the exact same thing happened.
am not fat
am little bit of artist, yes
Tasers my friend tasers. What's better then frying a mother fucker with 50,000 volts. From what would appear to be a bastardized glock.
Living in NY I have never felt the need for a weapon even when confronted by an agitated meth head. The only situations I can see my self needing a gun are so extream it borders on action movie level retartedness. The fact is that the cops are more likely to light me up if I'm carrying . That's a risk I'm not willing to take
Donald Trump summed up: "We shouldn't be involved in the Middle East, let Putin handle ISIS" while simultaneously "Not only should we be involved, we should bomb the families of ISIS".
Is Trump the master of blackwhite? The embodiment of doublethink?
He basically says everything, contradicting himself all the while.
You actually carry all that stuff on daily basis?
>letting you see a grown man piss and shit him self while rolling around like a retard
