My "travel carry" is my 1911. Alot of states limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds and it's my only pistol (besides revolvers) that fits the bill.Me too! I was just making a joke. My bother carries a Nighthawk (or it might be a Wilson Combat) as his EDC.
I do prefer my pistol have a safety mechanism of some kind, but more and more new models no longer have it. When I purchased my M&P I had to specifically order a model with thumb safety.
I keep a standard emergency first aid kit in my truck at all times. I also picked up a bunch of the small "trauma kits" from a military surplus shop and keep those in my range bags, SXS, tractor, etc. I even took a first aid/emergency response course offered through my employer a few years ago. Honestly, I'm surprised more folks at the gun matches I go to don't have any kind of first aid equipment or training.
