For a good example of a post reference my EDC Contest entry. Those should give you a good idea what type of thing I'm looking for. I will probably do a full fighting load post some time before the contest is over.

The contest is closed but we still have a few more posts to show due to my technological issues and some field time. Voting will start after the last entry is shown on the blog. Voting will run for about a week and will decide the winner's who get the prizes. Onto the Entry

My entry for TSLR's contest.
I've taken a page out of Mosby's book in that my gear is a tiered setup centered on my EDC. Rarely can you predict the fight, otherwise I'd stay home. But since that's not possible atleast this way I'm always left with something.
  With me everyday is my M&P9c w/ a 17rnd reload carried in a kydex appendix rig, Kershaw skyline,quark 123 , purrifacation tabs ,swat T and combat gauze and a lighter. 

Permitting I'm lucky enough to get my truck my mule sits fill with a 1ltr bladder, another reload, full blow out kit, boo boo kit ,some food ,filter straw,headlamp,chem lights,multi tool ,socks,hat and some cord.

 Plan is to get where I'm going as fast as I can.
I guess it's more of a GHB that's minimalist,light and will sustain me long enough to get home to the Fam and the rest of the gear.

 The bag is a camelbak BFM loaded with the usual suspects , Food,ammo ,shelter, more water a handy talk ham radio (more for eavesdropping than anything else, I'm going for my technician license.

    Spike Tactical AR w/ eotech 512 , another cat-T ,inforce WML.
Banshee PC w/ lvl3 , tactical tailor mini mav , HSGI bleeder,surefire G2, 1 pistol mag.
Emdom belt  the holster works with my 9c or the full size.
Let me know if you need any more info and feel free to change whatever you need to.
Thanks, KJ

Ryan here: As always thanks for playing. I like this setup a lot. Honestly it's quite close to what I have, particularly the bags. Thoughts?

Your full on fighting load is similar to what I had setup prior to my moving towards a battle belt centric setup. I do like that setup if it's an acute emergency situation and you don't anticipate being in a scenario where you are on the move a lot.

I am really interested in hearing about your holster for the fighting load as well. I EDC a M&P9c as well and would much rather be able to transition it to my fighting load. Would you mind sharing the make and model of it? I run a Safari drop leg holster with a Glock 22, but I'm wanting to move away from that.

No problem , that holster is one made by comptac. Just a level one retention owb model.
I had to drill a hole or 2 in the drop panel to accommodate it.
I have since switched my belt and holsters around a bit.
I got a deal on a TRL-1 so I ordered a blade-tech OWB, it's retention is based on the light so it works for both the 9c and fullsize.
I now carry in a vanguard2 and keep the other holster for training and practice. The vanguard2 is awesome ,but it isn't exactly perfect for re-holstering over and over at the range.
