Sometime varies, especially in winter, weapon could be a G19 in IWB or a Ruger SP-101 .357, either in IWB or Galco shoulder rig (can't wear that one at work, folks get nervous looking at the little hole in the end! :scared: )

The mere design of the Sig 365, turning a Glock 43 sized pistol, into a ten round magazine pistol, great design. And being able to add a 12 round spare magazine? Bonus.

My long-standing dedication to my Glock 19 4th gen pistol. Plus a g17 spare magazine will stay. I am too long in the tooth to change many years of being totally familiar with my armament size and comfort, plus the extra cash, which I cannot justify 20 years ago? Maybe.

This is my EDC for work. Can’t take a pic of my duty gun since it gets left in the armory at work, but it’s a Glock 17 Gen3. But I carry two sets of S&W M300 cuffs, 21” ASP, Sabre Red Foam, NAR CAT Gen7, LAG TQ pouch.

They make us use the Blackhawk Serpa Level 3 holsters and the worlds worst covered mag pouches (even the training dept even hates but the lawyers and top brass like them).

I’ve recently switched where the spray and baton are, which works a bit better.

Since my outside of work carry is different, it’s usually a 17Gen4 or 19Gen4 or 42 or M&P9 or 442 and spare mag (where applicable). Usually riding in an old Praetor Defense (manufactured by Bladetech) OWB holster and Bladetech mag pouch.

I usually carry a Fenix PD35 light and a Benchmade Griptillian (sp?) or some half way decent Kershaw folder I picked up awhile back outside of work as well. The Kershaw usually comes to work with me because I would be pissed if I lost the Benchmade in a fight.


If most are carrying a phone, why wear a watch? Just curious. In place of a watch I do wear an MIA bracelet, since Dec. 1971. Col. Dean Pogreba. Shot down on 10-5-65. Look him up. Very interesting read.

I can’t always pull my phone out at work. If something happens and we have to annotate what time a specific incident happens, it’s far easier and efficient for me to look at my watch when writing things down then trying to have someone else look up footage and read me the time stamp.

Also, I’ve grown to like wearing a watch. I guess I’ve just trained myself to?

Some people do, or have worked, in occupations where knowing and recording the time is important without using a phone. If this has been done for many years, it can just become habit. A lot if the time first responders will also wear watches. I remember going to an Oct 1 benefit concert and seeing more watch wearers than the last 5 years combined. There are even some flight attendants who look for people wearing work (non-fancy/expensive) watches, to scope out people that may be useful if trouble happens......
And then again......some people just like the Shiny...
Back when I use to work in the air freight industry I needed to know the time in various zones, so I wore a Timex digital one all the time. That was pre smart phone days but it would be easier just to glance at your wrist as often as I needed the time than to get a phone out over and over.

Haven't worn a watch in the last 20 years though. They feel so weird on my wrist now.
