Heading out for my Friday afternoon hike I decided to do a quick pocket dump before it rains.
I’m packing my Original SOE Active Shooter Response bag with my custom leather C.U.M.A. Biker wallet, keys, a couple of light weight knives including a TOPS C.U.M.A. HISS designed by yours truly and a custom Wani Claw Karambit neck knife by my buddy the Chicago-based karambit maker, Greg Wegrzycki. Greg makes the Wani out of Nitro V, it’s really lightweight, yet has a 2” cutting edge. He sells them for $90 and up. I plan on doing a review on it in the near future.
My flashlight is a little penlight deal called the TMT PLX by 5.11.
My carry firearm today is my SIG Sauer P228 with a spare mag. This is one of my favorite guns that I have nicknamed “Old Reliable.” She’s now about 20 years old.
Seeing that I got the P228 in a really good deal, I had it Cerakoted in a digital camo pattern. I also had some HOUGUE G10 grips put on her along with a set of XS Sights DXT2 Big Dot night sights on her.
And as always, my daily watch is a REACTOR. This is the Meltdown 2 model in bright green with a black Gryphon strap.
