Practical Everyday Carry (EDC) - stay away from magical talismans!

Everyday Carry, or EDC, is a topic that is discussed, argued, and basically beat to death on every firearm and training discussion forum as well as video websites such as YouTube. Everyone has their own opinion on what is good and what is not, and here at Independence Training we're no different - except that we don't believe that there is necessarily a right or wrong answer. Based on our experiences and training, however, there are some things that every member on our team carries around. John and Glen were on hand to discuss their specific EDC and why they carry what they carry.

Regardless of what you decide to gear up with, make sure that you maintain a high level of proficiency with it through professional training and consistent practice!

Stay Aware, Stay Safe, and Train Hard.
