You can see in the picture of my PSK a canister of Punch II pepper spray. I also have a SureFire G2 on my belt alt all times. A Leatherman Charge Ti is not really a weapon but it could be used as a sort of brass knuckles; the steel fist of Leatherman <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

The best weapon is your head and feet. Distract and get the hell out of there.
Thermo-regulate, hydrate and communicate.

Using your Leatherman (or anything else) as "brass knuckles" in a conventional type punch can be as hard on your knuckles as the other guys noggin'. A better way is to use it, or your Surefire, as a yawara stick. One good downward blow can break the badguys collar bone, and the attached arm will be out of action for a while...

Glock 22. Night Sights.

1 Spare mag.

Kramer leather IWB #1 1/2 holster and single mag pouch. Kramer 1.5" wide belt. Sometimes I wear the Kramer Vertical belt scabbard holster.

40 Cal. Speer Gold Dot 165 Grain HP ammo.

Cold Steel 4" clip point Voyager.

Cell Phone.

Surefire G2Z or G2 flashlight.

Sometimes also carry new gifts of Swissarmy Rescue tool and Fenix light AAA single battery LOP.

Other stuff in the car. (BOB and First Aid Kit)

I don't go anywhere anymore without being armed. I used to be 50/50 on being armed with a pistol. No more the kids are to precious and "less lethal" is no longer required do to the change of Oklahoma Law. No requirement to retreat. Not going to hunt down the next active shooter at the mall, just going to get the kids, wife, and me out alive. To live life and be happy.

Firearm is legally carried.

Glock 17 w/tritium sights
Spare mags in Fobus paddle holsters.

S/W Tactical Zenon Light

Gerber Multi tool

Cell phone

Tool Box in truck with Bob and other stuff.
I have a CCW and also refuse to go anywhere unarmed. Too many loonies in the world. I live off I-40 and you never know what kind of folks are coming off the freeway. The area also has a Meth problem which has turned once reasonable people into crazies.
What you know isn't as important as knowing what you don't know
