Every day personal carry- to include...
Nukehayes bought up an interesting point. I'm sure this has been covered before but with the growth of this site we have many new members.
What do you carry on your person in a normal day?
Me: KTP3AT in pocket (G23 off the job), pocket knife, cell phone, chap stick, Palm Tungsten T2 with extra 1 gig card (ebooks), keys, pen. On days I'm on call I carry the shop cell phone along side my personal. It looks stupid but oh well.
Minus the AR and mags, if I'm with the kids I have all this in the bag, plus the main compartment usually has food for the kids in it.
P3AT in my pocket. The XD is on the hip or in the CCW pocket of the bag, depending on my attire.
No kids, then it means I'm on a quick errand. Just the XD, wallet, pocket knife, cell phone, and keys.
Um... Wow. I guess I wouldn't know not having kids, but DAMN that's a lot of everyday gear.
No CHL yet; when I carry around the house or in my car it's my P95 at 1 o'clock, with an extra mag. It conceals rather well in most cases actually, though I haven't yet had to deal with summer wear carry. Besides that I carry a Spyderco Native, or if I'm in a suit, a Calypso, wallet, keys (2 rings) and phone. I can't imagine having a backpack as an everyday fashion accessory in the business world. Academia, yes.
I carry a KT-3AT and extra mag and a S&W M-36 with a extra strip. Small pocket knife. I do carry my old .45 some also but then I leave the M-36 at home.
I guess I carry more than the average dad. My oldest son has Autism, so having food and other gear to head off potential problems while we are out is essential. The med kit has come in handy quite a few times. The youngest is 7 months, so combined, both require a lot of gear. You should see the amount of crap we pack when we go away for a week!

But back home, I carry:
One pistol (usually a Glock, sometimes a P3AT)
One spare magazine
One Surefire E2e
One Spyderco folding knife
One cell phone
ASP "Palm Defender" OC spray attached to car/house keys
I carry this stuff on my body, rather than putting any of it in a bag. I try to get the smallest stuff I can, so I use a small flashlight, small knife, small phone, etc.

Maximo: Sir; you haven't mentioned a 'pick and shovel' , black poly, nor the compass
Man! you guys must wear suspenders. I'm comparatively naked with just a ppk/s, small keychain flashlight, phone, and a knife. Sometimes I'll take along an extra magazine when going downtown.
