Question from a reader: most minimal carry

HB asked yesterday a question about what is the most minimal kit we carry but that it still allows for some useful stuff.

If I understood the question right, you are asking what are the most basic items we can carry that will allow us to do stuff?

Well, personally, I can do with the following:

  • A sub compact pistol (Glock 43), though this is optional
  • A good flashlight (SureFire)
  • A good kife (Emerson mini CQC-8)
  • Minimal entry tools (lock picks, shim, etc)

I would add probably a monocular and a notebook and pen.
