My main daily carry now is the Glock 43x with a spare mag. Everything is held up by a fatty, steel core belt from Bullhide Belts.

My EDC is a Springfield XDM in 10 mm with a 4.5inch barrel. I am still trying to find a good holster for it, using an Uncle Mike's in the meantime.

I binge Active Self Protection channel! It's my happy place.
Because, well, prison, I carry more than a glock.
I am learning bushi ban self defense. I carry POM for oc spray and fits nicely in my fist. I carry a rescue knife (seat belt cutter and glass breaker) which also fits nicely in my fist.
Best fit of all is my glock 43x. This was made for my hands!
I have a Triple T holster and a dene adams corsett. The dene adams allows spare magazine. Girl jeans pockets kind of... Suck.
Im looking for a small tactical flashlight that doesn't break the bank. Any edge to give me advantage. And, yes, one that fits nicely in my fist.
I work retail and walk to my car and bank with money. Regularly.
I didn't see self defense post. And wasn't sure if I wanted to start the thread. I've only been a member half an hour. 😁

I wanted to try the Dene Adams Corsett, but as a 50+ year old guy, I figured it wouldn't be a good fit for me :lol:

Feel free to start any threads you want. An alternative self defense thread is a good idea. Russell may even make it a category( hint hint)

Take a look at this flashlight. It has a wicked looking bezel for up close and personal “enlightenment “ http://blackscoutsurvival.com/bss-tactical-light-v4/

That's nice. Wonder how it fits in girl pockets? Wonder why we carry purses? Nothing fits in the tiny pockets on girl pants! Lol.

They claim to fit everyone. And it's a reminder to watch portions. Which is why it gets left at home some. 🤷‍♀️ 🤣

I don't have an assembled picture to display, but my EDC is a Gen4 G19, usually carried AIWB in a CYA Supply holster, with two spare mags in KYTEX Shooting Gear magazine carriers; a left-handed Spyderco Paramilitary 2 folding knife, an Olight i3T EOS mini pocket flashlight, and a rechargeable windproof butane torch/lighter.

That is my most frequently carried combination. I will occasionally carry the G19 in an OWB leather or kydex holster, or in a shoulder holster rig, but the pocket items—knife, flashlight, lighter—with minor variations, never change.

Once in a while, I'll carry a G43, in a home-made version of the CYA holster, and a single spare mag also in a KYTEX Shooting Gear carrier, in place of the G19 and its mags. Also once in a while, I'll carry a G26 with two spare mags when I'm trying to split the difference between the G19 and the G43. I've upgraded all of my G26 mags to 12-round capacity. The G26 is also carried in a CYA Supply holster with KYTEX mag carriers. The CYA holsters are the best deal going, and they are really great for AIWB carry.

I used to occasionally substitute a G17 with backup mags, but I installed suppressor-height sights on in a while back, and it no longer fits in any of the holsters I have for it. Otherwise, I'd still carry it. It's not that much more to carry than the 19, and it is by far the softest shooting of all of my pistols in any caliber (.22 excepted), from any manufacturer, and one of the more accurate. I'm thinking of switching the sights back to something that will allow it to fit in a holster better.

If I'm dressing for more formal occasions, I'll substitute a Benchmade 940-2 Osborne for the Spyderco PM 2. But the pocket flashlight and the lighter don't ever change. In addition to being able to use a gun in self defense, you should always be able to see in the dark, and to light a fire. And of course I always have a cellphone with me. As they say, without coms, you ain't got jack.

Belts and holsters change. Even guns change. But the fundamentals of EDC don't. I always have a phone, a gun, a knife, a light, and fire, regardless of where I'm going.

Yeah my wife complains about her pockets too, can’t even carry keys in them.

You may already be familiar with them, but, these folks cater exclusively to women who carry:
