Ernest's Perspective & Every Day Carry
I’m Ernest Langdon, President of Langdon Tactical. Firearms have always been a part of my life and the Everyday Carry (EDC) has been a part of my routine for decades. It has changed, evolved and will continue to do so based on my lifestyle, the thing(s) I am doing or where I am going
I have learned over the years that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to firearms ownership or EDC lifestyle. From home defense to personal defense, I have changed, upgraded, replaced or revised many of the tools that I use from time to time. Often times those changes are based on comfort, family, availability… and, of course, LTT product development. (Everything has to be thoroughly tested!)
The one change that has been constant is the evolution of my carry kit to fit what is practical for me, what I am wearing and/or where I am going. I have several different pistols I am comfortable shooting and training with to fit my everyday carry needs - from full-size to micro-compact pistols, handheld flashlights to pocket knives.
