We’ve talked about what tools you have in your range bag (Range Bag Dump: What tools do you have in your bag?) last weekend. But I don’t remember seeing anything about a multi-tool in the interactions.
I have the Real Avid 223 tool. I haven’t actually used it yet, but it has a lot of good reviews. It’s pretty heavy so not something I would carry outside of my range bag honestly. For that I keep a Leatherman Wave.
All I got is a Havalon double folder knife with a tanto profiled secondary(primary?) blade. And I can tell you when your left-hand doesn’t know where your right-hand is…? That tanto tip can do some amazing surgery all on its own. One painless 1/8th-inch nick right at the focal point of my trigger finger has made dry fire very …ah… irritating the last couple of days.
(I do have a Swiss Army champion, Leatherman 35(yo), and Gerber multitool 25(yo); but I tend to get my tools out of the chest first for work around the house. Rarely need to do the precision repair in the field - at least nothing I can’t wrap up and bring home.)
I don’t like multi-tools. I’m old fashioned
If I need a knife, I use a knife. If I need screwdriver, I use screwdriver. I have big bag to keep all separately.
I don’t want to defend myself with bottle opener, when under the stress, I mix up multi-tool’s ends…
Seriously, I had a multi-tool few years ago… never used it, always looked for full sized tool if needed.
I have the Real Avid. Only used it a couple times, but it was handy to have.
I too have that tool, albeit I don’t have a need to use it very often.
I love them personally. I carry a large toolbox full of gun smiting tools with me on range days but the vast majority of quick fixes can be done with the right pocket multi tools.
I am a big fan of the Real Avid multi tools and own several of them specific to different platforms, as well as general gun smiting tools.
I have this glock tool from Real Avid, I use it occasionally, it’s well made and sturdy.
Real Avid 4-in-1 Tool for Glock
Do they make those for real handguns lol?
I’m ready to duck.
We had a very close family freind that had an outdoors show in the late sixties and seventies called, “The West Texas Outdoorsman” out of Lubbock, TX.
He had a pair of very high end custom aluminum framed 45’s that he caught nearly as much hell over.
They were built especially for executive carry and bear defense and were absolutely amazing.
I just looked at the multi tool site. Wow.
Way cool dudes and dudettes.
OMG! I was drinking a soda when I read that! You have to warn a girl before you make her laugh so hard, @Bugleboy!!
