Here’s the everyday carry ensemble from a prepped Washington State corrections officer from Everyday Carry.

At first, I thought he had his GLOCK 43 single-stack 9mm custom stippled. Turns out it’s Handleitgrips Gun Grip Tape Wrap for GLOCK 43. Not even $12! And he’s got the same stuff on his Kershaw “Blur” blade. He must like it.

Good on him for carrying an extra mag, a couple of lights (one out of the view of this cropped photo – go to Everyday Carry for the complete picture) – and a SOFTT-W tourniquet. I don’t carry a tourniquet myself on my person, but have one in the map pocket in my cars and in my shoot-me-first vest.

Anyone else in the peanut gallery carry a tourniquet on a daily basis? Or use that grip tape? I’ve always wondered how well the stuff stands up to the rigors of carry and use.
