See what this ranch owner chooses for his EDC (VIDEO)

Mark Muller, president of Max Motors in Butler, Missouri, lists the products he personally chooses for his every day carry. Not only does Muller think it’s his right to carry, but he thinks it’s his responsibility.

For his EDC, he chooses a Kimber Super Carry Ultra. He loves the 1911 frame, the quality of the workmanship, the excellent sights and accuracy and the firepower of a .45-caliber round in a small package.

Being right handed, he carries on his right hip outside the waistband with a holster he made himself. He often wears loose untucked dress shirts that offer concealment. He enjoys making leather holsters for himself, his friends and family. “There’s something nice about making your own things,” Muller says.

He calls his gun Thundercock, which was his high school nickname. It’s etched into the back of his holster right above the words: Sept. 11, 2001. The weapon and the fact he carries it daily, is commemoration of the terrorist attacks that took place that day.

For his knife, he carries a Microtech automatic OTF, which stands for ‘out the front’. He loves the speed and ease of use of the automatic knife, and Muller thinks Microtech build awesome knives. Living on a ranch, he uses his knife at least a dozen times a day. Being able to flip it out, operate it and tuck it away with one hand, is perfect for him.

His knife featured a glass-break on one end, but Muller ground it down because it kept poking him every time he went to grab it. Although it’s smooth now, but he can still get through a piece of glass.
