Specialist 38, a technical specialist from the South East, sends his “Bare Minimum” setup. From Everyday Carry.
Like many of us, he’s always got a gun on. In fact, sometimes more than one. Here’s what he writes:
This is what I carry every day. I may carry more (like a spare mag or another gun) but I have this if I am vertical and awake.
Indeed, home carry is a good thing. Don’t you love those people who ask, “How long would it take you to get to a loaded gun in your home?”
The look on their face when you say 1.5 seconds oftentimes borders on priceless.
Easily one of the more unusual items: the old-school Case Stockman pocket knife. Just like my grandpa used to carry. Specialist also carries a Benchmade Griptilian, so it’s old school and new school on blades.
Oh yeah, and the irony that Specialist38 carries a .380 in the form of an LCP. How about that? I liked the LCP a lot way back when. Well, until the LCPII came along. In fact, I liked the LCPs so much that back in 2013, at my second wedding (practice makes perfect), my groomsmen all got an LCP. Yeah, they thought that was a pretty cool groomsman gift.
