      Zyn, vielo, and ON are significantly better nicotine pouches that don't taste like someone came on a blob of honey and packaged it. I hate Rogue pouches so much.

      >Zyn, vielo, and ON are significantly better nicotine pouches
      Fully Loaded is the only pouch that's actually close to tobacco and out of the small white pouches Rogue and Camel (or Grizzly white pouches, same shit) are the only ones that are soft and don't routinely arrive with broken pouches. With that being said Swedish snus is still the master race nicotine pouch.

        Watch is a no name beater with a strap I made myself. I mostly carry the fixed blade in my belt, but if I carry the small one if I'm going somewhere more formal where that would be weird. If I'm wearing a jacket I carry that denim pouch with my stuff to roll cigs, if its too hot for that I'll roll a couple in the morning and carry them in that small box in the lower right.

      you carry a light right?
      always, but it's only slightly larger than the AAA battery it uses. Your flashlight is bigger than your gun. Only carry a single speed strip in my right side watch pocket with five .38+P rounds because my LCRx has a five chambered cylinder and it makes loading easier/faster. Knife is some ultralight benchmade lockblade from before they were bitchmade. Don't wear a hat because my hair is glorious.

      one of those things has like 3x the nicotine tobacco products do. Might as well make fun of him for replacing beer with liquor.

      Excellent taste sir. I carry standard pressure only cause I found these JHP's for like 30 cents a round when bought in bulk like 3 years ago.

      I just keep a firm grip on my stuff. Besides that, the phone flash is still better for the task than anything I grew up with that you could carry around with you.

      Those are speed strips designed for revolvers, they take longer to load than speed loaders but they lie flat in the pocket and they can be used to top off or partial reload.

      I prefer my RAMI but I do sometimes carry a 9mm LCR if jogging or needing extreme concealment for some reason. I chose it mostly because it was free lol. I don't really enjoy shooting it but no one enjoys shooting tiny DAO revolvers. So far it has always worked so what more do you want lel. It does conceal ridiculously well because due to the shape of a revolver the only thing sticking above your belt line is itty bitty little rubber grip and this also allows you to still get a good grip on the draw despite the entire gun being so deep. I do like that aspect of it. Also moon clips.

      Even in rural towns you really don't need to. I'd bet that probably 95% of the talk about using an EDC light is just people fantasizing about using a cool gadget they carry around rather than people who actually use them. Consider that before LED flashlights took off in the 00s, anything that a normal person could get a way carrying on a daily basis was extremely dim. Even the big 3D maglites that were a foot long and weighed just under 2 pounds were slightly dimmer than the flashlights that are included on smartphones these days at 39-46 lumens depending on the bulb you had in them (although maglites were focusable allowing for use at longer distances).

                Yes, that's right. It was impractical to do so. Most people would keep a flashlight in their car and use one if they were out at night. Before that people used fucking lanterns. What is your point? It is that phone lights are good enough.

        EDCing a flashlight wasn't really a thing pre-80s.
        before tiny LED flashlights, a ton more people smoked and carried fire with them that doubled as a light source. Matches and lighters were so common, you could expect any group of people to have a light among them. A flashlight was for work/emergency so it remained in the toolbox/glovebox. You're right about phones being better than old flashlights and much more practical to actually carry everyday, but it's not a replacement for a dedicated flashlight.

        use my tiny LED flashlight so much I have to recharge a battery for it at least twice a month. Most used piece of my edc besides keys,wallet,phone.

          Even 90s and part of the 00s, the people who did have EDC lights mostly had stuff like the Maglite Solitaire that put off a grand total of 2 lumens.

          >You're right about phones being better than old flashlights and much more practical to actually carry everyday, but it's not a replacement for a dedicated flashlight.
          The flashlights they aren't a replacement for are for tasks that most people don't need a light for on a remotely regular basis to justify carrying one around every day.

            guess most people don't work with their hands, don't need a hands free option and don't ever work in low-light /at night. But then even less people need a knife on a remotely regular basis to justify carrying one around every day. Maybe a gun is the only thing other than a phone you'd feel justified carrying since the one-in-a-million chance it might save your life is worth lugging around a couple pounds.

              If I need illumination for this, I'm bringing proper illumination in the form of a headlamp or a lantern rather than fucking around with a flashlight that needs to be small and light enough to carry around all the time.

              >But then even less people need a knife on a remotely regular basis to justify carrying one around every day.

                Not for everyone. I use my flashlight at my job every few hours and almost everynight when I go on long walks or runs so I don't get clipped by a car. I live in a large metro area and leave my house.

                Irrelevant to this discussion, considering it started with someone asking if they need to EDC a light. What you do at work is completely unrelated to what people might do in their day to day life, and if someone needs a light their line of work, they'd already know and wouldn't need to ask on PrepHole.

                >and almost everynight when I go on long walks or runs so I don't get clipped by a car.
                Wut? Why are you taking long walks out in the road in the middle of the night? And either your back is going to be toward oncoming traffic and they aren't going to see your light, or you're going to be facing oncoming traffic walking the wrong way out in the road.

                Notice how I said "hands free option"? anything with a pocket clip like pic related is going to clip onto the brim of your hat. 200-300 lumens from a package that weighs ~50g is plenty of light for most use cases during my day: that five second look to check something or that five minute task of connecting it when it's not. I'm also not having to maneuver my thousand dollar phone through hardware or trying to angle the light behind desks. The thing is cheap, easily replaceable, and won't shatter if it so much as dings a corner.

                Ofc you get the proper tool if need be, but having something that works already on your person is exactly what EDC is about. Ofc I'd rather have a full-sized pistol or rifle on me for any actual gunfight, but I'm carrying the minimum to solve the most likely problems.

        I gotta disagree here, I think there's probably a correlation between your job and what you feel the need to carry daily.

        For instance: I carry a flashlight every day. Why? Because I'm a foreman in a refinery and with the places I've got to crawl into you need a damn flashlight. I carry on my days off because it's part of my routine, same reason I carry a multitool. I've carried shit like this for work for decades, it's just a habit at this point.

      I always ccws full size with a light. Why? I was out shopping during the 2-6 hours between when the sun sets and when store closes, which along with the hour at most betweeen when stores start opening and the sun rises in winter is my most typical time to be out.

      And the power went out.

      Where I happened to be didn't have emergency lighting like has been common for years and is in fact required by building code in commercial building and has been for decades now.

      In the couple of minutes that passed between the time when the power went out at that building, that had no emergency lighting, I left to go to my car, because I had no reason to be there without power.

      Someone attacked me.

      Remembering my training I drew my full-sized concealed carry Glock 34 with light. I'm 6'9" and 420lbs and a full size on my hip looks smaller than a skin tag on a fat guy. I lit him up with my 10 billion lumins X300 Super Ultra Liberty or Death Desert Operator We The People Challenge Coin Commerative Edition 1776 flashlight, instantly setting him on fire an reducing him to ashes. This self-defense situation was ended before it had even begun, due to my prudence and forsight in carrying a full sized pistol with a flashlight.

      "How's that for emergency lighting." I quipped as I walked away.

        knife, space pen, flashlight, pry bar and bottle opener, and an elastic band. They're all attached to a leather pocket organizer, there's also like 20 dollars in cash in the leather pocket where the knife is hooked into.

        The idea is instead of having everything rattle around in my pocket, i just grab that thing and toss it on my left pocket, toss the revolver in my right pocket, and thats it. No fumbling with clips and loose items, the other shit like keys and lighter and wallet are supposed to be loose and used frequently. The flashlight can even be used without being removed from the leather holder.

    No because I have so many at hand, and a phone with a light function so the answer is I have many but carry rarely. Handheld lights waste a hand and my lights are to get work done so I favor cheap LED headlamps bought in quantity (though they survive my abuse rather well).

    I use LED headlamps daily as task lighting (mechanic and computer work and much more) and for night excursions to chicken coop etc.

        As much as I know guns, I'm not aware of the Hillary hole, please enlighten me, so I can make sure I'm not fucking myself over!

          hillary hole refers to the lock on the side of the gun, you need a key to lock and unlock the gun, most if not all people just ignore it. if engaged it prevents the gun from firing

          there is the small possibility of the lock failing or engaging itself bricking your gun so people treat it like the plague. it is a very rare occurrence and little proof of it happening but there is enough real proof to not rule it out as a possibility.

          they started putting in locks in the 90s and so all pre lock S&Ws are seen as more desirable. plus they literally don't make them like they used to.

          police departments, the ones that would still issue revolvers as backup/undercover guns, bitched heavily at the idea the lock because of the fears of it engaging on it's own. so there are new manufacture lockless S&Ws available for the snub nose 38s
          https://www.gunbroker.com/Revolvers/search?PageSize=24&Sort=13&View=1&BuyNowOnly=1&Ch-Caliber=.38%20Special%20%2BP&Ch-CapacityStandard=5&Ch-manufacturerName=Smith%20%26%20Wesson%20%2F%20S%26W

          you can remove the lock in a few minutes, people sell plugs to fill in the hole. not the end of the world like some people (who probably don't even own any revolvers) treat it as such.

            I never cared about it until someone pointed out to me that they had to enlarge the frame on the back where the hammer channel is and I can't unsee it now on my 686-6.
            I need to sell it and get a pre-lock 586, that's the only answer.

    Watch is a no name beater with a strap I made myself. I mostly carry the fixed blade in my belt, but if I carry the small one if I'm going somewhere more formal where that would be weird. If I'm wearing a jacket I carry that denim pouch with my stuff to roll cigs, if its too hot for that I'll roll a couple in the morning and carry them in that small box in the lower right.
    I also carry a victorinox climber and my truck keys but I left them in the truck

    Can I get some recommendations for edc size flashlights around $150? Also, are these new "laser" flashlights good or just a meme?
