PQT #3 - create your own mini Everyday Carry (EDC)

Want to have some handy tools around with you all of the time? Get rid of the little fru-fru keychain fobs and add in some mini keychain tools. A great flashlight, a mini Swiss Army knife, a small whistle, and any other thing that you feel would benefit you, and you’ve got your own mini-EDC (everyday carry). My favorite? This small keychain nail clipper.

What do you carry on your keychain that could help you out in an emergency?

    Very sensible set up. I also have a kobeta stick on my key chain. I took women’s self classes and this was one weapon highly recommended by the sensi. It’s a 5″ heavy grade plastic stick, covered with section of ridges made with the same material. it fits comfortably in your fist. Can be used to reinforce paunch, or turned lengthwise to thrust. Perfectly legal weapon to carry. I started taking self defense classes after a particularly scared encounter in a parking lotin broad daylight.
