My greeting is based on the slightly sexist assumption that most of my fellow EDC obsessives will be male, but hello to the girls too. Suffering under the welter of oppressive UK knife and gun carrying laws limits my ability to join in with the tactical fun but I'm with you all in spirit. Handguns were banned after the Dunblane massacre and carrying a bladed implement in a public place carries a mandatory five year jail term for a second offence. The police erect temporary knife arches at railway and underground stations, meh! So I'm keen on bags and flashlights.
