    Nope I live in the patron state of shooting stuff. I just don't see the sense in not carrying it. Just like people carrying three ways to make fire. Or 5 torches. YMMV I just feel better knowing it is there.

    I also wear it on my right ankle even tho I'm right handed that way it is easier to get to with my left non dominant side. I practice shooting with both hands. Seems crazy I guess but any little advantage helps in mind. I mean isn't that why we edc in the first place.

    Those are two bigger carries though are they not? That with what I thought was a flak jacket was what brought my assumption. Not the double carry alone.

    I'm pretty cheap.

    Dangler: $3.41 (really free since I used bing points)
    Pill fob: $5
    Streamlight nano $8 (really $3 because bing points)
    LM Micra: $17
    Thrunite Ti3: $20
    LM brewzer: $5
    Sanrenmu 704: $13 (not made anymore :( )
    Notepad: 33 cents
    Parker Jotter: $8
    Phone: $50
    Watch: $20
    Wallet: $22
    Keys: $3

    Never really done this before, but I have thought about it.

    Adding it all up, $174.74

    That's more than I thought, but if I had a more expensive phone, it would be something like $900 :p

    total - $994.00


    the prices above are an approximation as some of the items ordered on amazon have fluctuated in price, some up and some down. but i got as close as i could to what i really paid. as well, the top 2 items were given to me as gifts so "i" didn't actually pay for them, but i added in their cost anyway.

    Buying brass and bronze tools gets expensive. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I've already spent over $1k on various things from Atwood, Anso, Elliot, and Koch.

    citizen watch - 225 (almost dont count the cost. anniversary present from years ago)
    real steal knife - 45
    olight i3 - 22
    saffleback wallet - 35
    oakleys - 100 (almost dont count the cost, ive owned this pair for about 7 years)

    $427, without considering the cost of iphone 6s plus (monthy payments)

    i suppose i could count my wedding ring, neck chain, earrings.....adds another $800...but i dont really consider them part of my gear, though i do wear them every day.

    i feel really good that my pocket jiblets are now of a reasonable cost. Not that i ever had really high end stuff, but i was over 2k-3k for my daily carry for quite a while, and I eventually began to feel like it was a serious waste of money.
