EDC Bag 90 Day Challenge

| April 24, 2017 | 1 Comments

I started carrying a PDW everywhere I went in mid-2012. I received my first NFA stamp in January 2013, and have carried an SBR or PDW since. I’ve used a few different bags, but they all shared something: they were “common” bags that were designed to carry something other than a firearm. I stayed away from bags that […]
