On last night's Gun Nuts Radio, we talked about all the accessories and gadgets gunny types like to carry around with them. (and if you missed it, my well-armed and exceedingly dapper co-host Caleb has all the downloading details)
So I thought that perhaps you all (y'all?) would like to see my gear.
Wifi is everywhere and a girl never knows when she's going to need to blog, right? So after I got my adorable little Eee netbook, I decided I needed a bag a bit larger than my usual purse. I considered getting a bag similar to Alan's Eee-worthy man purse but opted for something a little less tactical. I found a simple messenger bag with plenty of pockets.
And you know what happens when you have plenty of pockets, right? You need to fill them with stuff.
Along with the holstered Bersa on my belt, I also carry a LED penlight, a small Gerber paraframe, a larger Gerber paraframe (in my pocket), a Swisscard and a spare magazine...and that's only the tactical gunny gear.
Gunblogger gear requires the Eee PC, a small notebook, a fine point Sharpie marker, a disposable fountain pen (black ink only), and a mini bulldog clip just because it's cute and you never know when you might need to clip something. I also decorated my bag with the all important Unorganized Militia Propaganda Corps patch (stickers and pins are also available - get yours today!) and a Breda logo badge that a very thoughtful and anonymous blogreader sent me. (Thank you so much!!)
The small flowered bag holds all of my girly stuff like bandaids, hairclips, a Tide-to-go pen and Dr. Pepper lipbalm, a gunchick essential to help keep your lips soft and subtly tinted during those long days at the range.
I used to carry only my wallet, my keys and a couple of lipglosses, max. Now suddenly I'm a pack mule.
