E&E Image Contest: Wicked Simple

E&E – get as gray as you can get - my thoughts and some wicked simple things from my bag.

Gun, blade, light, snickers vs beef jerky - all personal preference. I carry a 22 with a sparrow – silence is golden – an AR or 9mm one round and you better be ready to evade.

My bag is an old camelbak – toss the bladder - makes an ultra thin backpack easy to conceal under a hoodie or coat.

Bogota picks a thumbs up – bump keys if you are really serious.

Here is a picture of some goodies you may find interesting



USPS envelope - free tyvek - many uses - folds up thin - perfect bag when out collecting.

Put a couple magazines (the kind you read) in it and loop a cord before you seal it - hang around neck under your shirt = body armor - stops a blade - bonus add some steel like a 10” table saw blade (thanks goes out to my shop teacher) and you defeat 22, 32 and if very lucky 9mm.

Trouble? - address it and seal up your goodies - 4th amendment may help

Cut off a wrench / sharpen up - nice little pry bar - create space in a door stop – help get hinge pins loose? A fenced storage yard - forget the big lock and chain - look at the hinge side - wrench on the nut and open sesame.

Red LED and button battery - just right to save night vision - keep in palm of hand and add lite as needed.

Red Cap booby traps - very cool - put under things/in the door jam/trip wire with the spider line which is super strong and invisible. Nice to know when you have guests.

Magic cubes – use your imagination

Think wicked simple...

  1. I agree. Very stealthy. This is the stuff we need to read about in order to widen our outlook on this topic.

  3. What 22 do you carry? I've got 22/45 with Sparrow. I really like it. Very quiet with bulk pack.

    1. Mark 2 is a lot of fun but big - carry mine on a Beretta 21 - my choice would be a vintage PPKS

    2. The Bobcat is one of my favorites. With that Sparrow, great combo.

    spider wire fishing line, the braided version is in all my gear. stole sewing machine bobbins from the mrs. and rolled quite a few feet unto each, about the size of three dimes stacked. very strong, for lashing etc. love the prybar idea. consider it stolen:)

  5. The CamelBak under the hoodie idea is awesome. I've pretty much been convinced to buy one by this alone. Very nice.

    1. Camelbak makes really great stuff - have always been happy with their packs.

    2. I've heard nothing but good things, I just never managed to pull the trigger on one of their packs. I have a bladder of theirs sitting in my hiking bag and it's great. But as for grabbing one of those super slim packs, I just never saw the point. But now - totally sold.

  6. Observation made while compiling a similar kit - I really like that fencing / door hinge tool so measured the bolts on our galvanized fencing hardware (12mm). Compared this with a newer fence and found a slightly different dimension. So a tool with ADJUSTABLE might work better.

    I bought a 6" adjustable crescent wrench, cut off the end and ground that down to the same pry bar end. I am now able to work different nut / bolt sizes.
