Ok,here's what I carry everday. M&P Shield with a iwb galco. Xtra mag.A pen. A good Buck knife which I onced used to cut thru a seabelt. A small flashlight and a flashdrive. A duty bag is close by with my glock 23 ,4 extra mags and a first aid kit and a couple energy bars....
Permit of course and my concealed carry badge...( joking on the badge)
XDm 45 3.8 with extra 13 round mag, galco iwb holster, kershaw folding knife, S&W tactical pen, a dummy wallet (the black one) with expired credit cards or credit cards no longer used, and my money clip/credit card holder.
Every day carry? A brace of Glock 26's.. one open carry the other as a BUG plus some covert video+audio recorders. I do not carry a knife of any kind... not even a multi tool that has a blade in it.
A word of caution about knives to anyone in Michigan... Michigan "preemption" law (MCL 123.1102) says (paraphrased) that no municipality can enact or enforce any gun ordinances more strict than State gun laws so guns are safe from local gun bans/restrictions but.... it's a whole different story for knives because there isn't any knife "preemption" law.
So that means any city, county, township, town, whistle stop, can enact and enforce knife bans/ordinances more strict than State knife laws and jack you up for any blade of any size... even that jack knife your dad gave you when you were 8yrs old and carried in your pocket to clean your fingernails with ever since. And it is up to YOU to know what the knife ordinances are for where ever you happen to be... or are going to be.
Anyway that was just a FYI.... please return to the discussion.
My everyday carry changes at times, but currently I'm carrying a Kahr PM9 9mm. It is a perfect size to fit IWB or even in your pocket. I prefer a larger round, but I'm quite happy with my PM9's performance.
