Since I was old enough to carry a keyring, I've had at least one of these handy tools on me at all time that I'm dressed. I usually carry an extra to give to someone that is intrigued by it and i know will value it.

Anybody else keep one on them?

Yup!

I could lift the tail of a Cessna 180 by myself but I could never carry a P38.

A few years ago there was a assault outside of a mexican restaurant with a P38 and the newspaper just referred to it as a "military style can opener"

Never have had a need for it.

Not since C rats went out of style.

I used to carry one but then I realized.... I never use it.

The Leatherman has taken it's place over the last few years ... Got all the needs covered in there.

Carried on a long time ago. It would open up and cut either me or my pocket. I now carry a Pocket Leatherman tool in its place.

Freinds don't let friends carry double-action single-stack 9mm's.....


Oh, wait...can opener...nah...I need to get one of those.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 6:35:02 PM EDT
Use mine a few times a week.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 6:40:20 PM EDT
A P38, or a P3AT?

To answer your question: Ya, my keyring sports one. Finally had to tape the sucker closed – It liked to open at the most inopportune moments and rip my thigh wide open...

After reading about grape jelly and the sgt, it skerred me. What are we talking about?
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 6:47:50 PM EDT
I have one attached to each key ring and also keep one in my wallet just in case I were to lose my keys. Makes a great makeshift screwdriver when you don't have one. Has hundreds of uses. Oh and it is a pretty good can opener too.

Have had one on my key ring for about 23 years now.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 6:52:28 PM EDT
I've carried a P38 since 1988. Good topic!

I use it ALL the time.

That has been the BEST 27 cents I've EVER spent.

The prices today are outrageous! I paid 52 cents for a replacement.

I don't have one but a co-worker has one on his key ring that the Marine Corps gave him in 1968. He shows it to me and tells me about it every time he takes his keys out of his pocket.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:04:09 PM EDT
Shit, I thought you were talkin' bout a Walther P38.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:04:27 PM EDT
I've got one in my desk drawer at work. Does that count?
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:13:22 PM EDT
I do.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:23:53 PM EDT
You know, despite carrying one for 6 years, I haven't been able to open a damn thing with it.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:35:55 PM EDT
I carry a P-1 but I haven't been able to find a good P-38 for CCW.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 7:38:53 PM EDT
I carry one on my key ring in my right front pocket - and have the scars on my thigh to prove it .
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 8:07:33 PM EDT
I have and one seem to need to use it alot.
