OK, I'll play.My "loadout" has to work with a suit and tie, my workday attire. And it has to also allow for easy on/off of firearms and blades, as I am in and out of court.Same gear is EDC on weekends when i'm wearing jeans or cargo pants and an untucked shirt.So, not the greatest picture:Posted ImageClockwise from lower left corner:Molskine notebook (maybe the most essential bit of kit) http://www.moleskine........ocket.htmlGlock 19 in leather LH OWB hoslter by TT Gunleather http://www.ttgunleather.com/Spare mag in carrier by I do not remember whoSurefire E2D light http://www.surefire.........e-Defender with homemade "Tiger Ring"Benchmade AutoStryker http://www.benchmade.com/products/9100U.S. Southern Command challenge coincladdagh money clip (learn about the claddagh http://en.wikipedia.........ddagh_Ring)Fabaer Castell fat lead mechanical pencil http://www.pencity.c........?E scstoreWalletKa-Bar TDI LDK http://www.cheaperth........810-1.html (withdrawn from sheath showing postion in wallet)Not in picture (because it's taking the picture)Blackberry Bold http://worldwide.bla........berrybold/

I was looking at the pic and thought "Badge, but no gun?", then I kept reading. I know you might be asking, who is dumb enough to have a badge and no gun? I've seen it.

I know I'm a little late in posting this, but I finally got around to doing a dump and laying it out.
WOW, I surprised myself on how much I actually carry.
Anywho, from top to bottom;
  • Sunglasses (safety) – Wear
  • Baretta 92 + slide holster – small of back or strong side
  • Cannon digital camera – shirt pocket, coat pocket
  • Stylus (kubaton) – shirt pocket
  • Metal click style cheapo pen ($5.00 from Staples) – shirt pocket
  • Bluetooth headset – wear
  • Paracord bracelet – wrist
  • Titanium wedding band – finger
  • Gerber paraframe folder – pocket
  • Gerber Multiplier – leather sheath on belt
  • Generic aluminum flashlight – sheath on belt
  • Wallet – back pocket
  • Kopo Stick – front pocket
  • Watch – wrist
  • Access badge – neck
  • Notebook – small pen, access and id badges – back pocket/ jacket pocket
  • Car keys – front pocket
  • Miscellaneous keys – front pocket
Most times I also have a messenger bag with me so some of this goes in there along side a full size note book, additional pens, smokes, zippo, extra matches, etc.Not pictured is the iPhone (that I took the picture with).Yeah, I know it's a lot to carry around with me, but believe it or not, it doesn't look like I've got a 'Bat Belt' on and most of it's concealed at almost all times.  Especially when I have the murse with me.I guess I should really narrow down what I carry.  It does change in the summer when I'm not working but not much.  I carry about the same all seasons when I'm working though.

How well does the serpa conceal, I used one like that in iraq for carrying my pistol around the fob and I knew it stuck out a bit and it hid a little bit but not enough for me to think of it as a good conceal holster. Unless of course you are wearing a jacket or long button up shirt all the time but just wondering because I love the fast draw of the serpa.

It all depends on what you are carrying and what you choose to wear over it.  I save the Serpa for days when I'm in some sort of 'official' look and wear it out.  For days when I'm really under, I use an IWB... It is a great holster, though...

I personally think it works great with compact and subcompact Glock models.  I have tried it with a 1911 variant and it was much harder to conceal..even with a low cut jacket.  JLS (fellow Plank) runs with a 1911, so he may be able to comment more on concealing it.  I will admit though, that if I am just wearing a t-shirt the Serpa with a Glock 19 bulges a bit.  I canter the holster forward one notch to eliminate that bulge as much as possible, but if your looking you can tell...especially on a smaller dude like myself.

To answer what Throb was getting at I use an inside the pant holster for my daily 1911 carry. I'm slightly bigger guy and placing it just behind my hip, angle slightly forward it hides the profile of the weapon well. At times I'll go to a paddle holster depending on what I'm doing but that is obviously much harder to conceal. Here is what I carry on a regular basis…Posted ImageTaurus 1911 w/ Spare MagInside the Pant HolsterCRKT M16 tanto BladeBic Lighter – I use to smoke, and just got in the habit of carrying it.PenFolding Lock Pick Kit – Comes in handy here and there.Iphone (Charging Cord) – Used to take the picture
