Gun Free Zone brings up the fact that most of us in the gun community like our gear:
After that, we started to comment on what we carry besides our guns and people started to unload on top of the table: knives, multitools, lights, digital cameras, cellphones, cellphones with cameras, pens, pads, PDAs, spare ammo, etc. Nobody carry less than 2 knives besides the one in the multitool. Most carried one light and some two.
Most of us who carry a firearm like to be prepared in general. I know I haven’t left the domicile without some kind of Swiss Army Knife in my pocket since middle school. Now I carry all sorts of fun and exciting things. Granted I don’t have a folding knife, the only knife I have is on my Swiss Army Knife. I know I lose some credibility.
