This.
Other than my pistol, most of my EDC has fallen by the wayside. I have a backpack that goes in to work with books and some tools. I have stuff in my truck.

I doubt anything is going to happen between house -> truck, or truck ->work, that's going to necessitate a pocket full of stuff.

Q: "What do you carry but have never used?"

A: "My wife!" he says, in a 1950-ish misogynist male comedian's voice

i've not used an emergency mini lock-picking kit

OTOH, i have used my handgun a number of times to euthanize fatally injured animals along side the road, ie deer, etc (i live remotely)

Hahaha! That yote doesn't seem to have as much hardware as the one in the cartoons.

Probably because Wiley does not have Amazon Acme Prime Delivery which has guaranteed same day delivery in many places.

Come to think of it, with all the Acme deliveries Wiley got, Roadrunner hunting must pay better than I thought!

Actually, you gotta admire the efficiency of the coyote’s hunt. He was simply putting himself in position to take advantage RR’s mistake if it made one. The RR kept moving and didn’t look back, so Wiley moved on to an easier meal. The goal is to use fewer calories in the hunt than you gain with the meal. Coyotes tend to be very efficient hunters.
