Having followed my doctors advice and gone with smaller calibers this is my current EDC. 

edc.jpg  I carry either the M380 revolver or the Browning 1911 .380, sometimes both. I went back to my first true handgun love, the 1911 in part because well, who knows how long I will be able to shoot one well, so the time was now if I wanted to carry one again.

I down sized from my Commander to the Colt Defender with Green CT grips (shown) .45 ACP.  I just dropped down to the 180 Grain XTP's.  The Colt Agent is for Court and also in .45 ACP.    In a few years I may consider a 9mm.  Yes I said that.  The 9mm ammo out there today is so improved over the 9mm of my day.   I carry the NAF .22 revolver in my watch pocket at the same time and it also has a laser.   The Gerber Guardian Back Up is now in my boot.  I used to have it small of the back but it imprints in my vehicle seat and I have a new Durrango and don't want to FUBAR the seat.  Surefire wrist light if I think I will be out past dark and it lives in my vehicle console so is always there.  The holsters are for different dress.  The Nylon goes to the woods, quad riding, roon hunting or just walking the dogs.  The other two depend on the manner of dress.   I also have a Colt Mustang Plus II and have used it for court but prefer the Agent.  I have an AR-7 for the Boat so don't carry a pistol when fishing.

So my EDC changes some but is consistent.

Nice setup. My doctor who is a shooter actually suggested the SW ez for my wrist and thumbs but I found the Browning for at least the time being.

I lile the Guardian, nice blade. I had a Sting and a Mark ii but gave them to nephew in the sevice in a marine recon unit.. If memory serves at that time it was illegal to carry a dirk or dagger in Michigan. Have they changed that lime the switchblade laws?

Yes Michigan allows automatic knifes now.

Speaking of blades I have switched back to the Cricket from the Boker. I lost confidence in the Boker after it opened in my pocket twice, once tip up carry and once tip down. The second time it bit me pretty good in the web between thumb and forefinger. I believe the scalloping on the blade and body catches the material of the pocket and slowly works it open when you move. 

For night time work I also have gotten the new Streamlight Pro dual fuel model, it can use either a AA or CR123 battery. So far it works very well.

I'm looking to get hands on a Remington R1 commander in 9mm, they make a double stack version that hols 18 and is only one of those hairs wider than a stock 1911. I want to hold one in my hand before I commit, though. I will probably pick up a Taurus Spectrum and a G2c if not the R1 9mm.

That is actually a Para Ordinance as Remington bought them out.  I have the magazines for those on the store and it is good seller so there must be a lot of that model out there.

I have purchased multiple R1911's for friends and customers and every bought one for my Son-in-Law.   If I ever get another 1911 it will be a Remington.

TheR1 used to, not sure about still, come in the configuration I prefer, which is, the commander sans beavertail and with the original hammer. It was the pistol I learned on, and is still my favorite for concealed carry. I have never been bitten by the hammer of one. And the no beavertail is easier to conceal. Before getting arthritis it was on the short short list.

Seems like old age catches up with all of us eventually.  Years back I went to a Glock 17 because the 1911 I had carried for years was messing up my back according to my doctor.  Now I'm down to a Glock 42 (.380) or a S&W Airweight .38 most of the time, although I do still drag out the big Glock 19 or 17 on occasion.  Unlike some I've never felt undergunned with the 9mm.  In fact, I was using a S&W Mdl 39 back in the early 1980s and if I had to go back to that today it wouldn't worry me at all.

Pistol. Illegal.

Knives. Must be less than 3.5 inches and cannot be locked or fixed. Even then unless you have Just Cause for cayying one in public, illegal.

My EDC consists of wallet, mobile phone, keys, transport pass and close range glasses. No point in even wearing a watch as it’s unhygienic and not allowed in wards or operating theatres.

I can still run a 1911, but went to the G19 as the modern ammo is so good. ALL JHP 9mm ammo expands and the premium grade is amazing to an old pfart like me

An RDS also has me shooting well with the old eyes.

If recoil is a problem perhaps consider the FN 5.7. I still carry a Glock 20 in 10mm personally, but a lot of FBI guys swear by them.
