Hey everybody, I am new to the site and I was sitting thinking about what a man should carry on a day to day basis. Here are some essential things I carry every day and I wanted to know what you all…Continue
"I don't believe cars have every lost their manliness. Honestly, I think the public appeal has simply shifted to motorcycles and bikes, however, I do think working on cars is completely manly. There are a lot of men who don't know how to…"
"That's a pretty decent list. As others have said, be sure to check out the Everyday Carry group. We can always use some fresh blood over there.
As far as the fundamental list goes, here's mine:
1. Wallet - cash, ID, etc.
"1. Pocket Knife (SOG Spec Elite is my personal favorite of the many I own)
2. Wallet (debit/credit card, DL, FOID card, Military ID, occasionally cash)
3. Keys (house, car, work safe key)
4. iPhone (this is not a necessity, but…"
"1) Flashlight and one set spare batteries. I carry a Surefire Fury with dual output, 120 lumens and 500 lumens on full setting
2) Wallet with cash, cards, ID and pertinent contact cards should you get in a bind (Lawyer, that one friend to…"
"wallet - homemade from tyvek (fedex envelope) and leather, thin and works well, about $50 cash (that my kids use up about every 3 weeks), credit/bank cards, id - I keep the library card number on the cell phone - they accept it
cell phone - (apps:…"
"Your list seems overly, and purposefully, complex.
Here's what I carry:
*Card holder that holds DL, 1x Credit Card, 1x Debit Card, and $53 exactly.
* Opinel no.6
* Parker Pen
* Leather Key Fob that has car key, and one…"
"Perhaps he wishes to use the handgun?
Flashing a wad of an apparent money clip of $2,000 makes sense in terms of fishing for conflict.
Would that could be premeditated murder OR standing one's ground as long as you shoot the person and…"
"Am I the only one that finds that his phone is trying to take the place of many of the things I used to carry?
In principle, I need no longer carry:
a USB key
my keychain flashlight
most of the cards in my wallet
pen and notepad
"I carry an all-in-one tool set and a good knife. The tool set comes in handy for not looking helpless when something needs to be fixed on short notice. The knife comes in handy in a variety of situations.
I'm a dad, plus when I am out at my…"
"Wow... that list is a little full on...
Wallet- less than 50, Credit Card, Debit Card, Medicare and Private health cards. thats about it. some coins for church or charity.
phone- phone, note taker etc....
keys- house, car, scouts and usb key
"I think the logical answer to 'What should every man carry on a daily basis?' Is exactly what he needs. And every man should be competent enough in his own life to be able to figure out what that is. I'm not a big fan of this tick…"
"Wallet with basics.
Cash as deemed necessary to the situation; rarely over $50. I'll often go weeks without having to open my wallet for cash.
Car and house keys.
Phone, but not always.
No watch. Unless I am at work, volunteering or have…"
"Man, if you haven't done anything go and talk to your sister and tell her what she is doing is wrong.
She hasn't acused you, yet is treating you like you have been accused? Well, that's some horrid villification."
"Sorry Prescott I didn't mean to downplay your issues.
I echo a lot of what the guys are saying here. Friendship comes first and you need to sit him down and tell him how you feel and what you are seeing. And if it is making you uncomfortable…"
""Two of my only true friends"....its hard but take a look at your life and expand your social circle...this is a bigger issue than your question. What happens when they break up and you potentially lose both of them?"
"I don't know...that's possible. But believe me, it's NOT like I'm hooked on some idea that I could be with her. Like I said, I know better than to cross that line. I hang out with them a lot because they are two of my only true…"
"Oh, and quit the roids, man. It has been documented to cause, small testicles, male pattern baldness, infertility, and heart issues. Your heart is a muscle, too. All those anabolic steroids affect it just like your biceps or quads."
"I had a good upper-body workout today: cables, with a few extra reps; 20 dead-hang pullups; three reverse pullups; 246 pushups over 11 sets, including 14 knuckle pushups [my best]; body rows, etc. Then I ran 4.75 miles in 45 minutes on the…"
