    This is very difficult for me because I hate having anything in my pockets. The answer is just to carry around a briefcase, I think. I really hate stuff in my pockets... I don't know, I'm weird.

    But, when I must:
    wallet in inner breast pocket,
    cell phone in right pants pocket,
    keys in left pants pocket, along with any other random stuff - pills, sore throat lozenge, etc.
    business card case in right jacket flap pocket

    And all the other million things I carry around just have to stay in my bag and don't get to come with me.

    God, you're all so much more virtuous than I am.

    I usually have:

    Wallet, far too large but I can never manage to thin it out, right hip pocket

    Cotton handkerchief, left front pocket

    Small comb, left front pocket

    Keys, right front pocket

    Loose change, < $1.00, right front pocket

    Palm Pilot, left inner coat pocket

    Phone, too large and clunky, in case clipped to right hip, feeling uncomfortable and ruining line of coat.

    I stopped carrying a pen the last time I broke a Namiki and realized that I never wrote by hand anymore so why bother.

    I wish I could fix some of these problems.

    Carlo and others,

    Any idea of where I can find a long slim leather wallet for a low price ($30ish?). I'm not too concerned about brands for this, as I wouldn't use it a whole lot. I checked ebay but all I could really find were Prada wallets that were around $200 - too much.

    Drizz and Urban Warrior,

    You mofos are scary. I carry, let's see: A small billfold with an i.d. pocket, a few slots for credit cards, my keys, a pen, and eyedrops, all in my hiip pockets. Sometimes my cell phone. I put that in my ankle holster though, just in case I need to get the drop on someone.

    Vman - I found mine years ago at a Nordstrom Rack - got it for around $100 but original retail was like $500. Holds plane tickets nicely too.

    Urban, sounds good, I prefer the HK to my other guns mainly because of the grips and general feel, it's just a well balanced gun. I have a pair of Ruger DC89 9mm that I like quite a bit too when I want to go all John Woo [​IMG]

    I've got an HK USP .40 SW, and a Mossberg 590 (for my girlfriend in case of a break-in... no need to aim, just point and click). We also have a Ruger Mark IV (I believe), because it's just plain fun to go through a few thousand rounds on the range, and that little .22 will do it for under $50. Ha ha... never thought I'd see gun fans on this site. Of course, you both live in LA, right?

    As for the topic, I use a briefcase. I just got sick of having stuff in my pockets, it makes your pants bulge or your jacket sag and look like crap.

    Yeah, my other (more serious guns) are a Bulgarian AK, Bushmaster Target 20, and a pre-94 Ingram Mac-10. One of my friends is working on getting me a Dragunov SVD though.

    Sweet Jesus you guys. I guess gun ownership is something I'll never understand...UW, are you planning on invading a small country with that arsenal?

    A.

    P.S.>Yes I am Canadian and have led, apparently, much too sheltered a life to think concealed weapons are a good thing.
