    Yeah that's a good tip. The water from a plastic water bottle will taste like plastic after sitting a hot, but in a glass bottle it still tastes like clean water even after sitting for several days.

    I always keep one of these handy ;)

    You should look into getting an RO or distiller. After drinking actual clean water for awhile you'll start to easily tell the difference between it and tap water.
    All of my drinking water gets put through a Berkey filter

    I consider everyday carry to be essential tools/gear/clothing and a gun that you carry on your person everyday.

    Not the stuff you wish you carried or the stuff in your car or even your 17 knives like the kids on YouTube. The point is you carry it everday. Mine is based off small things I might need in any number of emergencies.

    So my set up is fairly simple.
    First a good belt is essential if you're carrying on the waistband. I am of the opinion that it needs to be rigid and sturdy and of high quality. Generally this means you'll need to spend some money. My belt is made by Original SOE, it was $65 and is hands down the best belt I have ever owned. It locks in place and doesn't loosen.

    Next is the pistol. Glock 19 with Trijicon HD night sights. In general the Glock sights are crap, they're plastic and not great at night. IWB Kydex holster I picked up off ebay for $30. Honestly it's not the best I've ever had. Warthog Gear is far superior and made in San Antonio. Also I now carry a back up mag, because mags will fail.

    Next is a knife, you should always have a knife. It's a great tool and great for more than just cutting open boxes like a makeshift screwdriver or if you can trust it as a pry bar. Mine is a SOG Trident Tanto. It's been in my pocket everyday for about 3 years.

    Cordage. It's not just a fashion statement, it's actually good to have around. Make a shelter, tie a mattress down, etc.

    Multi tool. You will use it, how often does somebody need a screwdriver? Maybe not everyday but often.

    Water, yeah I think it's needed. Water is good for you, plus the container could become useful in an emergency.

    Not pictured are my keys with my Streamlight nano and magnesium stick.

    A pen, cellphone and watch are not essential but useful.

    So what's your EDC? What do you have and why.
    Wow, that's a nice EDC

    I have been thinking about buying a Ruger LCP Max / Ruger Max-9 to appendix conceal carry, and was wondering what everyone thinks of this idea. The smaller profile and reduction in weight seems like good benefits.

    I have a PSA Dagger and holster but have never worn it outside. I think its rather obvious I'm carrying though when I look in the mirror with an untucked t-shirt and jeans combo. The silhouette of the pistol can be seen slightly depending on the angle... perhaps this is due to me not wearing a loose enough shirt?
