Be Heard: What Do You Carry in Addition to a Handgun?

In the last installment of Be Heard I asked you what handgun you carried and why. It was a great discussion with plenty of well reasoned responses (and tons of GLOCK owners). Now, I want to hear what you carry with your handgun and why.

Do you carry a knife? A light? How about a spare magazine? What else do you carry? Let us know what you carry and why so we can all start learning from each other. This is your chance to Be Heard!

    Very well prepared man above. Do you wear cargos pretty regularly for the pocket organizer or spacious front pockets? I can only practically carry:
    phone(GZ one–>practically indestructible)
    Kershaw scallion
    spare mag
    Fenix PD20 flashlight

    I don’t know if I’m as well prepared as some but here is what I carry every day.

    Glock 19 in a DeSantis Intruder
    Lenwood Custom leather belt
    Emerson CQC-11
    Fenix LD10
    Marathon TSAR (cause you gotta have some bling!)

    I also carry a messenger bag/”he-satchel” that is mostly for carrying first aid gear and my lunch, but I do keep a couple of spare mags for the Glock too.

    I’m sure its a carryover from my days in iraq, but I can’t understate the importance of having a good blow out kit. here are the contents of mine:

    4″ izzy bandage x2
    Asherman chest seal
    wound seal
    QC combat gauze
    z-fold gauze x2
    SOF-T wide
    Robertazzi NPA

    A legit BOK and the skill to use it are very important. It is unacceptable to win the fight only to bleed out or watch others bleed out before help can arrive.

    This is not everything I carry EDC, but this is the bare minimum (excluding gun) that I ALWAYS carry when I leave the house.
    ZT 301
    SOG folder(One of 3 different models)
    Streamlight ProTac 2L
    Stream light Microstream
    Rite in the rain #97 pen
    Mobile phone

    When I carry a gun (which is pretty much always) I also carry a minimum of one spare magazine.

    My standard EDC includes a TAD Alpha loaded with GSW kit, fire starting/signaling kit, emergency shelter, water purification, etc. etc.
