So whats in your patrol bag?

I have in one of the Hatch patrol bags:
-One of those metal clipboards with all paperwork inside
-Pens, Pencils, Paperclips
-A spare Maglite and a striaght baton (in case I fuck up the PR24)
-A set of those little binos. (Sometimes it is nice to be able to see across those big empty spaces sometimes found on post.)
-Spare set of hand irons
-Spare M9 mag (No spare ammo.)
-Shitload of D cell, Surefire, AA and AAA batteries
-MP3 player with one of those radio adaptors that you tune it to the right station to transmit to the radio. (German radio sucks ass)
-Little headset for cell phone (Driving and holding a cell phone to your ear is illegal in Germany.)
-Roll of scotch tape (For when the desk sergeant wants things posted up, or I want to leave a warning note on someone's vehicle.)
-spare ticketbooks, notebooks, index cards.
-4 pack of redbull, and some beef jerky, and various other small munchies.

25 pounds maybe? Not bad at all.

ETA: I only have to walk it from the company to the MP station and back to the barracks after shift. Otherwise it just sits on my front passenger seat all day.
