For a number of years, Glock has ruled the roost where polymer-framed striker fired handguns have been concerned. That’s not to say there weren’t others, just that Glock pretty much owned the market. Then, about 2014, Sig hit the market with their P320. It continued to fly under the radar for a year or so. In my world, the P320 sort of appeared out of nowhere and, shortly thereafter, I suddenly found myself the owner of a 9mm Compact model that had been worked over somewhat by Boresight Solutions.
HOW IT STARTED
Somewhere along the way, my pockets had ceased to have enough capacity. I realized I needed to carry more stuff than I could fit in my pockets. Sadly, it was a becoming daily issue. Enter the EDC bag (everyday carry bag) and all the stuff that it contains.
Initially, it started with having an EDC bag in which I could carry my stuff to work. I found this particularly important when I was riding my motorcycle. At work, I had found myself in need of batteries for a portable blue tooth speaker. Lunch breaks frequently found me needing my laptop, say nothing of carrying said lunch. Somehow I decided I needed a small first aid kit. When I left the work force to focus on my writing, it continued to morph.
My first EDC bag was a Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger (single sling) in khaki. The Sitka was a good bag, but its capacity was limited for my needs. Also, the khaki had a bad tendency to show dirt. After the Sitka came two nearly identical bags that I alternated between, a Mil Spec Monkey Adapt Pack in black and a Grey Ghost Gear Lightweight Assault Pack in Kryptek Typhon. Both of those were good bags but lacked the organization I came to need for everyday use. Then, for Christmas, my girlfriend Kim bought me a Maxpedition Kodiak in black. The Kodiak is the Sitka’s larger sibling. Apparently she had been listening to my complaints and saw a chance to be helpful. It has been very much appreciated.
FIRST ITEMS ADDED TO THE EDC BAG
Well, I’ve finally done it. Here’s a blog to give me a place to keep my writings that I still have the rights to as well as any additional writings I may conjure. While I said bores and blades, I’ll write about whatever strikes my fancy.
