It's a lot, I know. I'm not an IT guy though. I'm like a scientist and the Crocodile hunter rolled into one. Any suggestions are welcomed.
Re: Liberty's Teeth- It really isnt all that heavy Items listed DTL impact karambit, Comtec stinger attached to keyring, snaphook that is removed while im driving, and homemade palmstick. The Iphone is attached to my belt. The 18mm deepsocket snap-on wrench resides in my coat pocket in the winter.
My stuff isn't much different than anyone else's. Bear in mind, when i'm at work I also have a 3/4 ton 4x4 chevy that's ready for an apocalypse too. Between the truck and my bag I'm pretty confident that I'm ready for whatever Florida may throw at me.
I've got a Sitka as well..in the same color too. I switch between it and my current Multicam Oakley Icon 2.0. The Sitka is definitely a nice bag all around. It's easy to access and is very well made. I'd definitely recommend it.
Perhaps I'll make a thread about the contents of everyone's EDC bags. I know this thread is more focused around what one actually carries on themselves on an average day...but I'm sure many of us carry bags as well. I'll have to go empty mine out and takes some pics before then though.

As far as the multi tool and blades go I'm on a tight budget right now so I am using an Ozark trail I picked up for $10 at walmart and a cheapo small no name multi from Autozone for $4, the blades I paid about $7 for the pair and the LED only cost me $2.
( I have my eye on some Gerber/Leatherman/Sog stuff that I will pull the trigger on when the time is right )
I also have a pocket tool and a widgy from county comm on the way.

Hello all! Here are the contents of my pockets this afternoon:
Wallet, Spyderco Tenacious, Sig Sauer C3 /w extra mag, Reactor watch, Zippo, cheap flashlight, Keys, Rosary, KIA bracelets (RIP Brothers...). Looking to upgrade the flashlight when I can.
The holster has been an issue for me. After three unsuccessful attempts, I finally found a holster that would fit it. The slide is more square and thicker than most 1911's. I had to go with a Blade-tech IWB Phantom 1911 Fullsize just to be able for it to fit. 4 inch barrel on the C3, but the smaller one wouldn't fit the thickness. I have looked at several makers and none make/currently plan to make specific holsters to accommodate it. I carry my Glock 27 in a white hat holsters Max-tuck with interchangeable scabbards and they do not make one for the C3 either.
