3 Everyday Carry Gear (EDC) “Back-Up Weapons” Every Survivalist Should Carry!

EDC Everyday Carry Weapons For Backup

Like most of you, I’m really big into making sure my everyday carry gear (EDC) matches my tactical lifestyle.

That includes my self-defense weapons.

Besides my Glock 19, I like to carry several “back-up weapons” for when a gun isn’t the right legal response or when I need an alternative to help me gain the space I need to get to my firearm.

Here Are 3 Everyday Carry Gear “Backup Weapons” Every Survivalist Should Carry

EDC Everyday Carry Weapons For Backup

1. Combat Folder Knife

I actually prefer a fixed-blade knife for self-defense…

…Because no matter how much you practice, your chances of getting a folder knife open when you’re ambushed or locked up in a clinch with your attacker is next to zero.

Unfortunately, many states consider fixed-blade knives “illegal”.

For that reason, I carry my Limited-Edition Benchmade folder on me as backup.

2. Mini-Flashlight

Besides my knife, my mini tactical flashlight gets the most usage on a daily basis.

If I’m in a parking lot at night, I always pull it out and shine it around the parking lot as I make my way to my truck.

This alerts anyone who may be lying in wait that I’m paying attention and they’re less likely to target me.

In addition, the LED light is blindingly bright… allows me to focus the beam from wide to tight… and has a strobe feature for disorienting an attacker to allow me time to escape or get to my primary weapon.

3. Tactical Pen

Remember in the movie, The Bourne Identity, when CIA agent Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) was ambushed in an apartment by an assassin?

In the close-quarters combat fight scene – facing a knife – Bourne grabs a simple plastic pen off a desk and repeatedly stabs his attacker.

While any pen “can” be used as a weapon, one that’s made specifically for self-defense will serve as a valuable back-up for your EDC arsenal.

Plus, you can take it on a plane and other places you can’t take a gun – if any of us ever gets on a plane again!

If you don’t have one yourself, you can get a tactical pen here…

Even if you do have one, you should grab another one for your spouse, kids, or others you care about.

Flying… SUCKS.

Sure, travel can be fun. It’s often necessary for work or family, too.

But even the folks sipping champagne in First Class can agree…

Flying, itself, is uncomfortable, but the worst part…

…is dealing with security.

There are lots of horror stories about the TSA, but the real problem is simply that their whole job is to STOP you from being “tactical.”

So what’s the armed, prepared citizen to do?

How can the “tactical” minded person fly without feeling totally naked and unarmed?
