Figured we could start discussing Tom's videos here to offer our viewpoints on them, so I guess I'll get it started with his latest.

My EDC (and the reasons I carry them) consists of a G20SF and/or a G29SF (firearms are self explanatory) with 2 spare mags minimum, a 3.5" boot knife (I work on towers a lot and wanted the ability to cut myself loose from lines if I got tangled in an awkward position) , a work knife (more a tool than a weapon), a SOG multi-tool (again, more of a tool), an ASP Airweight Baton 16" (primary protection against 4 legged critters and gives me an option for an impact weapon) and an ASP Key Defender (gives me a non-lethal option for defending myself).

Before anyone gets in a tizzy about the hardware I carry, let me preface it by saying I spend a large part of my day either working at remote locations on mountains or inside less than desirable homes (druggies and dealers, gang bangers, and other criminals) as part of my job. I've chosen my system to give me the most flexibility in dealing with a threat while defending myself.

Sounds like a good set up for what you need bro. I'm looking for a good brand name knife(mine is cheap but effective) a good small light and maybe a baton to round out my EDC.

Reading your bio norahc this seems more like a game called what's my line =) When I'm out and about I rarely carry anything more than my 40S&W P2000 and my German Shepherd, she can tell me waaayyyy in advance if someone is behind me and a dog bite to most is a pretty good deterrent to even ask me for a light for a cigarette.
