    Building Your First Tactical EDC Kit

    As the saying goes, 'It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.' Everyday Carry (EDC) Kits were created by people who live by this statement. You're here because you've made the choice to be as prepared as possible. We're here to help.

    What is an EDC Kit? In short, it's the practical AND tactical items you need every day. Your environment will dictate the approach you take in building out your EDC Kit. Bear in mind, there are a few different perspectives on how and what to prepare for. Some people choose to keep a bag in the trunk of their car that they label a 'Get Home Bag', designed with the sole intent of getting home in the event of an emergency. That bag is separate from what some would call a 'Bug Out Bag' which would be designed for long-term mobility and sustainability in the event of a catastrophic event. This article is focusing specifically on your EDC Kit. What items do you need to complete the tasks you do every day, and what items can you keep with you in case of minor emergencies or unforeseen projects? Answering those questions will help you fine-tune your EDC Kit to your specific needs. With this in mind, consider what your needs are, and assemble your tactical everyday carry essentials accordingly.

    3 Signs You're in the Wrong Gun Shop

    My oldest child is a boy. When he was born my wife was nice enough to agree to let me buy a high-end 1911 that I could have fun with now and then pass on to him later. Six years later my gun collection (and my family) have grown, and while the 1911 still hangs in the safe, I've acquired some nice pieces that my two boys may prefer more than the 1911. But that 1911 will always be special to me because I remember why I bought it. Even if my boys grow up to say they'd rather have something different, I'll still cherish that 1911...
