  • Yohei556

    M&P two weeks in a row? The fanboys will not be pleased.

    • Nicks87

      I’m just shocked by the fact it’s not a 1911. The Rolex and the BMW keys would indicate this guy has more money than sense, which would fit right in with the 1911 folks.

      • Patriot

        You’re an idiot

        • Nicks87

          Why? Because I think extravagant displays of wealth are abhorrent? Especially when those items are not even the best at what they do.

          • GotR

            Because a world with only Honda Civics, Glock 17’s, homely women, and guys with your mentality would make for a very uninteresting reality.

      • Nashvone

        You forgot to mention the $100 wallet. Let’s just hope he’s more accurate with the M&P than the Rolex is with time.

        • iksnilol

          As a guy with a pretty decent Seiko, that’s a pretty good burn against fans of Rolex. Hats off to you.

      • Daniel556

        “Your lack of a Rolex and BMW indicates that if you had more sense, you’d have more money.” See how equally retarded that sounded with the conditions flipped? Calm down, try the dip.

  • Ironballsmkinzy


    • Why?

      • MR

        ‘Cause he has a nicer car than I do. Duh.

  • Jsim

    Yet he has an iPhone 4

    • RICH

      The i-phone must be for calling 911 !

  • Bro, you’re short two pocket knives. Do you even EDC?

  • Nathan Means

    Gotta agree with everyone here.. the guy seems to have some dough…. would have expected a more “spensive” gun like a sphinx or a colt agent 1911. Good on ya smithy

  • Scott Tuttle

    around here EDC seems to stand for ‘every day complaints’

  • FrenchKiss

    I don’t understand the need for a watch if you are carrying a smartphone. The phone displays time.

    • Kelly Jackson

      Because when your power is out for a week during a natural disaster or you’re lost in the woods the watch is still going to tell the time long after your phone has run out of power.

      • FourString

        Especially if it’s kinetic. Or mechanical and you didn’t pass out for more than 48 hours

      • FrenchKiss

        Why would I take a phone into the woods when there is no way to charge it?

        • Kelly Jackson

          Because it’s apparently your only source of time…

          • FrenchKiss

            You are illogical. Don’t let your emotions control you.

    • FourString

      Sometimes when you’re working intensely, it’s ergonomically easier/faster to look at your wrist than fumble for your phone to whip it out of your pocket. Depends on line of work, but in mine, this is the case, milliseconds count.

      Furthermore if you’re walking in a dense city it’s much easier to look at your wrist than fiddle with your phone and risk bumping into some person or hazard.

      There’s a reason why Smartwatches are starting to take off.

      • FrenchKiss

        This is reasonable. The other replies, not so much.

    • iksnilol

      Just get out, Mr. “I fidget with my phone to look at the time”

      I shake my head in disappointment at you.

      Simply put, phones die easily. Automatic watches die 40-48 hours after you die. Some of us like dependability.

      • mosinman

        not to mention it adds a bit of redundancy over simply relying on the phone.

      • FrenchKiss

        What if your watch breaks?

        • iksnilol

          Then, only then will I use my phone to see the time.

          + it’s not like breaking a watch is as easy as breaking a phone.

          • FrenchKiss

            They can both break if they get water inside them. Then what? Do you how to tell time with a match stick and a compass? That’s really the only way to be tech free.

          • iksnilol

            Uh… what kind of s*** watch are you using if it can’t survive water? You’ll have to try harder than that.

            It’s not really about being tech free, it is more about having a piece of tech that won’t fail. An automatic watch is durable and doesn’t use batteries (only stops ticking if you stop ticking for a couple of days).

          • FrenchKiss

            A Rolex is a sh-t watch? The things one learns on this website! BTW, there is no watch, that I would wear everyday, that could survive being dunked in the water. Especially salt water.

          • iksnilol

            If it can’t survive some water, then yes, it is a pretty bad watch.

            Also, Rolexes are pretty overrated nowadays. They sell more based on name than quality.

          • Kelly Jackson

            You’re really just straining to do some explaining now.

            The Rolex Explorer II is water proof to 100 meters. Not resistant like your Japanese watch, water proof.

            Rolex’s reputation was made on a dependable dive watch like the Submariner. It was further cemented when the Deep Sea Challenge survived at a depth of 10,908 meters.

            We get it, you’re poor, you’ll never own a high quality watch.

          • FrenchKiss

            Hahaha. Not poor, just practical.

    • superflex

      It’s all a dog and pony show.
      Look at me!
      I’ve got a Rolex

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    BMW driver.
    Probably takes up two lanes at the range.

  • Martin Grønsdal

    can someone explain a few things to me:

    if you conceal carry, can you

    1. have a drink/beer, at home or in a pub/restaurant?
    2. drive near a school, airport, assembly building, etc? (could you walk by a school?)
    3. make the weapon visible, intentionally or unintentionally, for example by removing the jacket in a restaurant, etc?
    4. refrain from telling a police officer that is pulling you over, that you are armed?

    I know – random questions, but I would appreciate a reply.

    • MR

      Concealed means concealed. However, I’d personally avoid consuming alcohol or going where firearms are unwelcome, while carrying. If I get pulled over, I inform the officer that I have a permit and am carrying.

    • Porty1119

      1. No.
      2. Driving is fine; walking within 1000ft is generally a no-no.
      3 & 4 depend on the state, and, in particular, how you are making your weapon “intentionally” visible. Brandishing is virtually always illegal, while removing your outer layer and transitioning to open carry is legal in most states.

      • RICH

        I have to strongly disagree with open carry being legal in ‘MOST’ states. Open carry is only legal in a few states.

    • RICH

      Check the CCW laws of the state in which you reside as each state varies somewhat. If you’re not sure of something remember…. you probably shouldn’t do it ! You should be able to get the laws of your state online.

    • Jay

      That varies by state. However, imopine:
      1. If you’re in a setting for where you think you might need a gun in the first place, is drinking alcohol really a great idea in the first place?
      3. Making a weapon visible is a situationally dependent question. If you do, you’d better be cognizant of absolutely 100% of your surroundings. 99.999% it’s better to leave it covered.
      4. Handing over license, registration, insurance and a concealed carry permit, “mr. Officer, I’d like you to know that I am carrying at this time…” Sounds way better than “hey, I’ve got a gun!” Maybe rehearse the former a couple times not to flub it.

  • FourString

    Oh snap, I thought he brought his M&P to Electric Daisy Carnival for a second

  • st4

    Is the absence of an extra mag because, “that’s a given,” or, “all I need is the one?” I am hoping the former.

  • As for Martin none of the above are good ideas and number 3-4 could get you arrested or worse.
    Personally if I stopped you and you didn’t tell me you were armed I’d be rather upset to say the least.

  • Wackenator

    Yawn. SOB holster? Howse the wheelchair?

  • USMC03Vet

    God bless Texans. If took them forever to get it and they had to do a lot of obnoxious stuff to get attention to get it passed, but logic finally had it’s victory.
