    Exclamation HOW MUCH PERSONAL GEAR is TOO MUCH???

    How much personal gear is too much? The other day I realized that my equipment load out was upwards of 7 lbs.
    4.83 for gun, holster and two spare mags in carrier
    .5 for pocket knife
    .5 for belt and cell phone holster
    .3 for tactical light
    now add in a cell phone, car keys, 2.00 dollars in loose change (no pennies) and you can see where this is headed.

    I have conceded one spare magazine and now use a smaller mag carrier (that helps some)

    If it pulls your pants down it is to much. That is one reason in cooler weather I like a concealment leather vest.

    Hmmm,

    Buck Rush Knife = 2.4 oz
    Loaded Pistol (7 rounds, LCP, Crimson Trace Laser, Kel-Tec Belt Clip [no holster required]) = 13 oz
    2 Fists of fury
    Trashy mouth

    Just right.

    But I'm sure if confronted by a BG I would be missing the weight of my Glock 19 with 31 round clip.

    Your pocket knife weighs as much as your belt and cell holster together? May I ask if your pocket knife is a machette, or made of depleted uranium? <LOL>

    The "Trashy mouth" accessory may go a long way.

    A long way, yes; but it could go EITHER way!
