So there’s a fair amount of debate whether appendix carry is safe or wise. It’s actually a perfectly safe way to carry a firearm. Guns only go off if you pull the trigger. So as long as you have high standards of trigger control, you’re good to go. It’s typically a psychological impulse when people think carrying appendix is unsafe. A LONG time ago (before I was into guns. Yes, there was such a time) I thought 1911s carried cocked and locked were unsafe because I could see the hammer back… ready to jump forward at any moment discharging the firearm into my friend’s leg! That was a purely psychological/emotional response. 1911s cocked and locked are in fact just as safe as most striker fired guns chambered. The same psychological response is applied to appendix carry ALL the time. I have never once heard of a CCWer shooting themselves in the groin while appendix carrying. The people you hear about blasting themselves in the groin are typically wannabe gangsters carrying without a holster, in their sweatpants, and they lack any idea of trigger control in the first place. Give yourself high standards of gun safety, and train hard. #trainhard #appendixcarry #ccw #edc #sidecar #sidecarholster
these are some of the things that almost never leave my bag… but are without a doubt mandatory on all my trips.
the action journal (designed by designers, for designers) is awesome for organizing your to-do lists and projects, and as a business owner i always need it with me when travelling.
the iphone 5 trigger case (here in titanium grey) is the only case i ever bought simply because it’s the only one that ever caught my eye, and which i found to complement the beautiful design of the iphone. i always say, why hide a beautiful objet with a hideous case?
i shopped a long time to find one of the best GPS, and this is the winner. probably the most unique feature of this particular unit is its size, which is about that of an iphone 6 (thickness included). the leather case is simply a necessity if you don’t want to scratch the screen.
the lamy fountain pens are simply a great writing tool (if you life fountain pens), plus they are totally inexpensive. they come in many colours (here in graphite) and with different nib thickness.
ok, i am french, so it’s in my DNA to always have a swiss army knife on me (to open wine bottles, of course). i have several, but this one was kind of cool, so as an everyday-carry it has recently replaced my classic red one.
this is a personal indulgence, but driving a BWM X3 manual (yes, a stick-shift) is like no other car i’ve ever driven. everyone need to spoil oneself once in a while, right?
ArmyTek is a brand that doesn’t pop up in as many EDCs as it should, especially considering this Canadian maker’s got some serious manufacturing chops. Their lights are considered to have military-grade quality, with some very robust features. The new Prime A1 flashlight uses a 1xAA/14500 cell to power its XM-L2 emitter up to a maximum of 450 lumens across 6 modes. The TIR reflector it uses enables a cleaner and farther throwing beam for long-range use. It’s built tough: type III hard anodizing with anti-slip matte treatment, double o-rings on trapezoidal threads, protected electronics and impact-resistant front steel bezel all contribute to its resilience. Give the Prime A1 a try if you need a rugged flashlight for your EDC.
