We always hear talk about EDC items but after seeing some of the lists, I have my doubts if anyone is really being truthful. I am talking about the stuff you carry EVERY SINGLE DAY, not some days, or days your going on a trip, or days you think about it. Stuff that goes in your pocket no matter if your going to the store or going on vacation.

Obviously there are some days we carry more stuff. If I listed everything in my briefcase, it would look like I am preparing for the apocalypse but I only have it on me 5 days a week and even then, only a portion of each day.

REMEMBER, BE HONEST. We won't learn anything if you try to make your man purse European Shoulder Bag sound like a Rambo movie prop

My current EDC:

  • S&W 642
  • Spyderco Delica II
  • small flashlight (right now a Streamlight TL-2)
  • keys
  • wallet (not pictured for security reasons :)) )
  • Phone

S&W 442, small lock blade folder, Wallet, a reload for the Smith, keys, and a phone

Think I miss read the question, you meant besides the side arm. Other than my handgun I carry an Old Timer trapper pocket knife and a buckeye, thats about it.

I carry everytime I leave the house. I figure the one time I dont I will regret it. I rotate sidearms. I am a knife guy and recently been carrying a ZT Sinkevich Design flipper

As much as I absolutely love my full size Rock Island 1911 .45 ACP in an Uncle Mike's shoulder holster, I find that stashing my newly acquired S&W Mod 36 .38spl snubby, is much more convenient. Hmmm... I wonder if I could/should carry both, or is that considered overkill?

Not overkill at all. I've been known to carry two at a time also.

Guess I'm pretty barebones:
Sig P365 in FIST IWB holster
Spare mag in FIST OWB holster
Microtech Ultratech
Wallet
Keys
Cellphone

Unfortunately I'm minus the Sig at work. Controlled access won't allow it:mad:

No problem. I thought you were responding to me anyway! Your comment seemed to be applicable to my comment about not being able to carry at work. And it does suck!
Agreed! By the way Have a safe New Years Eve and a great New Year
