When "EDC" isn't really EDC ready.

    That looks a lot like the Maxedition Remora.  About half the price though.
    CaliforniaOf course I carry a gun!  It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous.

    It's probably close. Needs some work though.

    You have managed to stumble upon one of my "pet peeves" .  The term EDC, or "every day carry" .    :banghead    No such thing.  Especially if you regularly fly on commercial aircraft and are not a U.S. Marshall.  Also true if you happen to work in an environment where carrying a firearm is prohibited.  Also true if you work in an office everyday, ride the subway to and from work but find yourself vacationing on Kodiak Island today.   I could go on but you get the idea.   

    I understand the need to plan for the unexpected and to act accordingly but I am loathe to use the term "EDC" because it is both inaccurate and smacks of intellectual laziness.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.

     but find yourself vacationing on Kodiak Island today.   I could go on but you get the idea.

    Are you on Kodiak?  If so you are in my neck of the woods.

    Nope.  Still in Arizona but I used Kodiak Island for purposes of illustrating my point that "EDC" depends a LOT on what your situation is and that situation can change pretty dramatically from one day to the next.  I can't imagine a Ruger LC9 being of much use on the aforementioned island but it might be just the thing for an evening stroll around the 'hood.   :hmm

    Most people have a boring existence.  Their commute, and whether they can carry to work, or at all, are 'everyday' for them. 

    'Everyday' carry is just a simpler way to say Most Flipping Days.  'MFD carry piece'  Now that just doesn't flow right... :shrug

    And to think, you and I are normally the ones to take something literally  :P. Coelacanth beat us on this one with the term "edc". I understand it being a pet peeve, but I still use the terminology. Seeing as my days are at school, I rarely get to carry everyday, which is..... Just awful. Texas ain't as progun as it needs to be.

    It drives me nuts to see what could be a useful term misused and over used to the point that it's now useless. They use it as an advertising buzz word that only dilutes any meaning it could have had.
