I must tell you all about Christmas.

I gave the 4 nurses that I work with small flash lites with a bit of para cord on them .

They said "WHY" I responded that they started at 7am and it is dark in the winter and you leave at 7pm and its dark.So just in case you need some lite.3 out of 4 were polite and nodded,the other asked whats this cord?I responded that it could be used for different things,trying to be carefull not to OVER sell.I reminded her of what I carry in my lunch box,food in small cans gator aid(ready to mix)and a quart of mixed.

ok so it got 1 out of 4 thinking ....

Thats all we can do,You can bait the hook but the fish has to bite it.

JMHO

Okay, weighing in for the average citizen woman. Here's what I have, not what I know I should have. This has been my daily carry for a while. Plan to supplement it with a small folding poncho, a Platypus bottle and some hi-cal meal bars from Forge. Trailbar, fully charged cell phone, two lanyards, whistle, keys, shiny round keychain for signalling, plastic poop bags that may come in handy to keep something waterproof, survival bracelet, microfiber cloth, flashlight with wrist lanyard, two knives (one is multi-use), partial or full lip balms, lip gloss (mineral oil), two pens, ID/DL, Med cards, Debit card (you never know), half dozen bandaids for cuts and blisters, and some folding cash in a lightweight camo colored nylon purse with multiple compartments. It needs some improving, but it's better than a lot of folks. Advice is more than welcome. Janet

So here is my attempt at reviving this thread.

I have this insulated lunch box type bag that I carry a small amount of backup stuff that never really gets any use aside from snacks and gum. I live and go to school in the city, So I'm never really in need. I mostly ride public transportation (bus and train) so i keep it minimal and in the this pouch so I can move it from pack to pack. I keep my keys and stuff and that little swiss knife sees many uses daily. Im pretty comfortable with my set up.

this entire "rotation" idea is stupid. You'll be reaching to the wrong place, grabbing the wrong thing, when under stress. Cops should not be wearing their taser for a right handed draw, but instead require that draw to be left handed. OK had a case where a cop meant to draw his taser and zap a downed, held (several cops) but resisting perp. Instead, the cop shot him dead. When your life is saved or lost in the next half second, dont have any question, subconscious or not, where you're going to reach, what you're going to grab, how it works or what you're going to do with it.  Several times in my life, my gun felt like it "grew out of my wrist", magically. I didn't at all remember the draw.  The speed and surprise prevented my having to fire.  If you hit somebody with a bullet, especially a woman or minority youth, it's going to cost you $50,000-1/2 million $ to stay out of prison and "un-sued".  So dont be so slow that the perp has no time to see your gun and stop his attack. Most attacks are not made with a gun. So theres often 1/2 second or so "in the mix" that will allow for a REALLY fast draw to change his mind!

Ok, onetime. What you are saying is that a police officer can't tell the difference between his fully loaded side arm and his taser? The issue is not the speed of the draw...this is not the wild west. The issues is conflict resolution and descalation, which, apparently isn't taught to police officers anymore....

    • Watching the news (really should avoid that)  but they are using Ketamine as an antisuicide medication and the user says it keeps her from committing suicide DUH and chronic pain does not make a person suicidal ?  I have friends that have had multiple surgeries to stop chronic pain some with no success or limited success. I for one feel the AMA and the FDA use less than scientific methods and allow certain doctors much more leeway to function everything can be addictive there are people who are addicted to eating laundry soap some people cut themselves or body dismorphia. IMHO it is reasonable to suspect a person is overusing medication when request for refills mount or their blood test show higher amounts than normal so we have controls I guess using an ID to track will help. Better living through chemistry I believe in it not as abuse of a drug but use to control pain and allow people to have a life, Ketamine if it is useful use it I do not see a problem with pot for people with life threatening diseases I do think as other drugs we cannot totally trust doctors because some will prescribe without care just for the money and there need to be limitations on operating vehicles people need relief but do not need to endanger others IMHO.
    • True forgot about them well really on purpose cause they are FRIGGIN' HUGE. I liked the Coonan as it was a 1911 style and not that HUGE..... I should have stated I wanted them to build one more affordable and more of them.
    • I, ah....ahem....used actually was ISSUED a sap after my law enforcement rookie probation period, and ordered to have it on my person while in patrol. Used a few times with great effect, still have it...somewhere around here, I'm sure. Have a couple of grandsons that are "into" paracord projects. Sent them a jig and oodles of paracord, along with one inch diameter steel balls, for "key fonts, for each of the adults I. The family. About half are finished, so I'll pick them up in June. Never can tell when a key fob will be needed....
    • They make .357 Magnum Desert Eagles.
