    It was the day after the last wedding I ever photographed. To celebrate giving up the business I sprung for the ticket from the UK. My good friend whose sister's wedding it was came with me and we did Ireland (incredibly nice people, incredibly expensive Guinness). The guy who makes the sticks and runs the guest house was sure that we were a couple of gay guys trying to sneak away from wives for secret whatever, he even apologised for not being 'able' to give us a double bed :blink: . Both uncomfortable (this is very Catholic Southern Ireland and we're two 'gay' Jews) and hilarious. :)

    Y'know, the only item I had been on the fence about for a while is the LM Squirt PS4. It was the only item that I have been so interested in, and never got around to buying it. It was months of waiting, thinking about it, considering it, wondering about it, blah blah blah...

    Then I got a gift card through my preferred merchant for christmas.

    Aaaaaand it's coming tomorrow. :)

    me too. I'm not sure why - most of the ones i like the look and price of are far smaller and more people-friendly than the folders i usually carry. I think it's because my knives get lots of food prep/eating utensil use and i'd worry about gunking up the works.

    I'd love one of those. But they're still illegal to import. :cry:

    A really nice pair of leather hiking boots. I have plantar fasciitis so can't really wear them anymore.

    A Glock 19.....cause I keep reading articles on how I'll shoot a 9mm faster and more accurately.

    Im happy with my hk45c as my ccw and I'm pretty proficient with it. But the grass is always greener, right?

    Vp9 is on that short list of want to buy, for sure! But Glocks are the iPhones of the gun world. They make everything for them and it's hard to beat $23 for magazines compared to $40 to $50 for the hks.

    I need to win the lotto!

    I always wanted a "higher-end" knife to replace my Kershaw Chill, but I have yet to see anything comparable (as in shape, size, weight, etc)

    Maybe someday my 6-year old Inova X1 will break and I will replace it.

    There is a lot of EDC gear I would love to buy, but it comes down to one or more of the following problems

    1. No one has a design that appeals to me (like wallets)
    2. The technology is not yet where it needs to be (like smart watches)
    3. My old item does the job just as well as the new offerings

    Forgive me if this goes against the grain of this thread, but on a slightly different note...Two items that I've thought about buying many times but for some time didn't...BUT now after considerable indecision, have just recently went ahead and purchased... are a Fenix flashlight headband and Eneloop rechargeable batteries. Now, I'm thinking to myself that I should of went ahead and bought them a long time ago.

    For years I have wanted a Kestrel weather meter, but when I have the funds, I talk myself out of it...I don't know why...

    My list is less EDC items as it is just stuff I keep thinking I need or want but never get around too. Most recently Klean Kanteen pint cup(s), and Merrell Trail Glove 3 shoes, also some accessories for the go pro. As to the why, I haven't gotten around to getting the Pint Cups, I want to wear out my vans before I buy new shoes, and I really don't need the stuff for the go pro. Oh I want to get a 9x9 silnylon tarp from Oware USA too, but I'm waiting until I have a trip scheduled.
