Thank you Rob. That's what I'm not seeing, the "picture" icon. But now that I know where to look I like my chances of figuring it out.

http://img163.images...dsc01881bm.jpgI apologize for the link, but I can't seem to post the URL right for the picture to be put into the message Here is what I carry. I don't carry all at once, I switch them out depending on what I feel like having on me. Starting top left and working clockwise:
  • Ted Baker Wallet
  • Quick Release Paracord bracelet
  • Iphone 4s
  • Springfield XD 9mm w/ Streamlight TLR-1s: This is the one thing I actually don't carry on me since CA is very strict with CCWs..but if I had my CCW, I would definitely have this on but without the light
  • Casio G Shock Riseman GW-9200GYJ-1: Pretty much my everyday watch
  • Diesel Chronograph: Watch worn out at night and on more formal occasions
  • Benchmade Barrage w/ Droppoint Blade
  • Surefire G2X Pro and LX2 Lumamax: I usually carry the LumaMax since its more slim but I still carry the G2X around
  • Keychain: Has a Nite Ize S Biner which functions as a beer bottle opener, a little Solomon bar, as well as a Princeton Tec light. I will add a Leatherman Squirt eventually.

This is my EDC. When going to class, I carry a blow-out kit in my bag, along with a few other items. 
But this is whats on me, any day of the week.
 
Heres my thought process:
1. Always be prepared. 
 This, and the subsequent following, not only apply to physical items; but more importantly, [i]mindset[/i]. 
You should always be thinking [i]"What can I use on me? Around me?"[/i]
2. Always have a backup.
This, is obviously not possible. Again, we look to the mindset 
[i]"What else can I use in the event that I don't have my ____." [/i]A piece of glass for a knife? 
The end of your leatherman to break out that window? Some matches for a source of light?
3. Always know where you are going.
Sometimes when I am rushed, I like to purposefully slow myself down and consciously ask [i]"Where am I going next?" [/i]
[i]"Whats my exit strategy?"[/i]
I like to think the items I carry on me allow me to accomplish these 3 rules I try to live by.
 
-First and foremost: My lockpick set. (Rule #1) 
I've been carrying a set of lockpicks around in some form or another before I was carrying a knife. 
I've been picking locks since I was 8, (sounds more impressive than it is). 
And sure enough, this set (commercial and homemade) has gotten me out of more scraps than I can think of, 
and into a few as well. Its also allowed me to help others almost more than any other item. 
Inside, there is a plug spinner, awl, and screwdriver (Worked as a commercial locksmith. Handy tools to have at all times)
 
-Second: My knife. A CRK Umnumzaan. (Be prepared!) This has recently taken the title from my Microtech Socom. 
Titanium handles, framelock, and S30V steel, plus a glass-breaker. (That sold me, I'm becoming a paramedic!) 
This is my AT-THE-READY. When the down and dirty gets going, and I need to be absolutely be sure I've got an edge, 
this is it. I don't cut boxes or strings or letters with it. Another serves that purpose.
 
-Third: My Blackhawk Gladius. (Rule #3...gotta see where you're going, right?) Boy oh boy. 
Have me and this guy been through it all. Variable output (which is really important I think, 
and gratefully more flashlights are adopting this). I've gotten it updated with a CREE bulb, maxing out at 275lumens! 
I've also added a GG&G serrated bezel to act as an impact device. (Rule number 2 - have a backup.)
 
-Fourth: Southord Jacknife pickset. (Rule #2) I've owned this thing for about....11 years now? 
My pickset I've also carried, but a few pieces have come and gone. This baby recently saved my a** on a roadtrip.
 
-Fifth: Leatherman Wave - Original. (Rule #1 & #2) Stainless steel? Can't go wrong. Plain edge [i]AND [/i]serrated? 
How can you resist? Carried this guy for about 5 or 6 years. It serves as my wundertool, and utility blade. 
 
-Sixth: Blackhawk CQC Riggers Belt.(Rule #1 & #2) This is my second one. I bought them because before no-one I 
knew really made them. I love it. Unique, sturdy. And so far, it's held up 2 years of abuse. 
The previous lasted 3. Not bad for EDC. Plus, what else is gonna hold all this gear up? 
And because of certain items on the belt, I can store a spare handcuff key. (I'm an amateur escape artist....[i]amateur[/i])
 
-Seventh: Wallet. Nothing special. Its held up its end of the bargain for the last 8 years. 
More importantly, it holds my Mitnick pick set my buddies got me. When I buy a TOOOL set, I'm sure this set will retire.
 
-Eighth: Mitnick tool set. (Rule #2) This is more of gimmick item really. It may get the job done, but it ain't gonna be easy. 
Plus, its 1/16 stainless steel. Probably thinner. How can you [i]not[/i] carry it?
 
-Ninth: Phone. Communication is key. Especially when trying to reach first responders and loved ones. 
Nothing special about this.

Posted ImagePretty normal stuff (for me anyway); the watch is a GW9000A.  I enjoy seeing all the other photos, apparently some people have a closet full of cargo pants.  If I had more pockets I would probably add some first aid supplies.
