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.

MCS 275 – The Truth About Firearms Night Sights

Tactical Firearms Night Sights

If you own a firearm, for home defense or concealed carry, you’ve probably heard it:

“Most attacks happen in low-light environments.”

Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Armed bad guys are looking for an easy surprise ambush so their targets won’t fight back…

…AND they don’t want anybody around, including you, to be able to identify them!

Knowing the chances are high that any attack will happen in low light, it just stands to reason you won’t be as effective in defending yourself…

…Which is why you absolutely should upgrade your firearm’s sights for low light.

But which should you get?

Fiber optics, or true “night sights?”

In this week’s podcast episode, Modern Combat & Survival’s Jeff Anderson prepares you for the roller-coaster ride of “expert” opinions when it comes to night sights… and helps you sort through it all to make the RIGHT call for your guns.
