    What pins do you edc, if you edc them at all.

    My pins would just be the pins on my school lanyard:
    [​IMG]

    That is, down and up, my freshman retreat pin, a Scottish flag pin to show solidarity to the independants over in Scotland, a lead-pony pin from MLP, and a Trinity coat of arms pin.

    So… what pins do you EDC?

    The only pin I carry is a "Parent Pin" I got when my daughter graduated Air Force Boot Camp. I kept it on me all through her deployment to Afghanistan and back. It's sort of my "good luck" pin now.

    what AF career field? iirc, every field has a "badge" to wear on the uniform. you could get a small version of her career field badge.

    because I recently re-watched this movie,

    got flair?

    She is in the security forces and she already sent me a few pins, I think what you mentioned is one of them. I don't really pin it up besides this one though, just some sentimental moments attached to it.

    I don't do the the 'flair' type pin, but I do EDC about 2-4 safety pins....

    In fact, does anyone know where I can purchase GOOD quality safety pins? Stupid question, it would seem, but all my old, heavy duty ones have rusted slowly over years of use. And all the new ones I purchased are too thin and weak, almost anorexic compared to the older ones.

    Just remember, it is up to you if you just want to wear the minimum amount of EDC Flair... Now, Josh over there, he's got 29 pieces of EDC Flair on... and a great attitude. Lets see if we can be more like Josh.

    I don't EDC this pin, but it is a little unique... after the air war in NVN, I got a chance to travel to Hong Kong with a Chinese linguists friend... we spent some time in a ChiCom department store there... brought back Mao buttons, Red Books, Mao's Poems for my flight cryptanalysts (P level Mandarin linguists) and Morse intercept operators... translated on this one.. "political power emanates from the muzzle of a gun" ... couldn't find one of Uncle Ho

    The smiley I've got on my namebadge for work. I'm a big Watchmen nut, & the Comedian, well, I can relate. On my pack, I've got one with a simple quote from Inigo Montoya...

    The only pins I have are ones I wouldn't keep on my bag for fear of losing them. Though maybe i should track down some others.... Thanks for the idea.

    Yes. That is indeed a... that is a Nazi pin. Only included because I reused the pic. I wouldn't wear that in public.

    But I'm talking about my school lanyard that was seen in OP. That's where all my pins go. These are just backup lanyards.

    Got some more pins.

    The very bottom pin is my sophomore retreat pin, and the one straight above the shamrock is just a discontinued pin.

    That's a nice pin. Looks well made. Is it metal?
