By Christi Conner Tate. At the close of my second year of competitive shooting, I am not a newbie anymore. I sat on the porch in the cold one morning as snow clouds hung low and dark in the north Georgia mountains where I make my home. With coffee in hand, I asked aloud to anyone who would listen, “Why am I making rookie mistakes?” This isn’t fun. “Who does that in the close of their second year?” Repeatedly, I could put my finger on a recurring problem rather than newness: it’s the lack of focus during the planning and the execution during the whole process of competitive shooting from the going to bed on time to ensuring my gear is together. I am going to bring back some elements of the nervous girl I banished because she’d been unable to eat or sleep until prep had been done. In my third season, I’m going to bring back part of that nerve problem: use my calm to be more efficient and work on focus and let the nervous girl the credit that she deserves and force me to prepare.
Every Day Carry (EDC) is anything you might carry with you on a daily basis. As the old saying goes, “Don’t leave home without it.” Ideas on what to carry with you will vary, but typically include cash, credit cards, ID, phone, first aid kit, your firearm, and your knife. The knife is a tool that covers a lot of uses. It gives you many abilities including hunting, making things and even protecting yourself. Knives are great because they never run out of bullets and even a dull serrated blade will do some serious damage. You can hit at minimum with the blunt end as well as use the sharp end to thrust, nick, cut, and tear. The knife is also a widely excepted tool allowing you to carry it just about anywhere you go. This makes the knife a must when it comes to all aspects of your EDC.
