The Things We Carry

Hat tip to Professor Kerr for pointing out this interesting photo montage of the things people carry around with them.  There is a Glock among the pictures.  I have to wonder how many of these people who are carrying around half the contents of a Radio Shack around with them every day would suggest that we were all stark raving mad for thinking carrying a firearm for self-defense is really no big deal.

As I’ve told people, if they made little pocket sized fire extinguishers that could put out even a large raging fire, I’d probably have one in my book bag.  I already keep a conventional fire extinguisher in my vehicle.  It just makes sense to be prepared.

UPDATE: Countertop shows his entry.  John Moses Browning would be proud.

    How big a fire are you talking about? There are some smaller extinguishers that are used on kitchen fires.

    Here’s an idea: adapting CO2 airgun cartridges into miniature fire extinguishers

    I have a regular fire extinguisher for kitchen fires. But most fires in the kitchen can be put out through the use of lids.

  4. Alcibiades McZombie says:

    What if someone suffers from a lack of lids or has lid-phobia?

    Why, then mini-extinguishers would be perfect…

    I carry a lid everywhere I go… you know… just in case.
