I have a deck of STUD cards in a Porper Clip.

On any given day I have a deck of cards, folding quarter and maybe, just maybe some halves.

Seems like when I started out, I had pockets FULL of crap... and most of it was. I was the gimmick king. Hehe, I had Nickles to Dimes, Floating Matchstick on Card, Invisible Deck, Rising Card deck, man I don't even know. I was a prisoner of my own gimmicks. Ihave since abandoned them. Not completely, but it's rare I carry a gimmick with me.

The most prepared I get these days is to have a dupe or a double backer. Of course if I know I'm going to be sitting down and socializing, I will bring Color Monte. My new plot is, "man I've been losing my ass gambling lately, wanna see how?"

I always carry a bag that hangs to my side, I carry bag along before I start magic, so I pretty much got everything in there. But the main things that I use in streets situation is ; coins, sponge balls, cards and TT. sometimes IT.

A practice deck
The case to some Ice Breakers Liquid Ice

That's all I have on me right now, but I've settled into my house and don't need anything in my pockets. My random fact for this post is that the Liquid Ice balls bounce.

I can usually be found with a deck of cards, coins a pendulum, and a few nails..... yes, I said nails for a metal bending routine. Now, that's something you don't see everyday. A guy with nails in his pocket.

If I'm just out and about without a fixed intent to magish...then this is the stash:

1)English Penny
2)Half Dollar
3)Jeff McBride's "Ritual of Liberation" cord on a beltloop

If I plan on an "impromptu" opportunity then I add:

1)Half Dollar Shell
2)TT w/Streamers
3)Jumbo Coin
4)IT Loop or Kundali Rising gimmick on wrist
5)Card name, coin value or other info (based on the opportunity) written on my left forearm for Voodoo Ashes.

Hehehe ya Phil. I remember back in the day when I carried sponge balls. It looked like I had some sort of dead hairy 16 legged creature in there. :wow: ... and how I for some strange reason tried carrying 3 decks at a time in the same pocket for no apparent reason. Now all I carry is coins. The jingling sound is a dead giveaway.

Hmm lets see..pyro preception..pack of tally ho's with a dupe..and a pack of blue bikes with one blank gaff and a dupe.. and a regulular wallet with a mini queen of hearts behind my fiance's pic..makes for a great mathcing revelation

1.Coin Bite
2.Pre-Bent Quarter
4.Deck of Blue Bikes and another deck for dupes and replacements from signing.
5.The Raven
7.About 6-10 "Torn" set-ups
8.Healed and Sealed perparation materials in my wallet.

When I know I'm going to be with people I know, and I don't have anything new to show them, I whip out the Ultimate Ace Assembly deck. Most of the people I know personally haven't seen the UAA. Every now and then I carry D'Lites, just for a back-up.

Hmmm. let me see...A large, heavy, brass Chinese coin release from a rope (my own), three half-dollars and an "ancient Roman" coin in a velvet bag, a handkerchief (clean), a special effect with a lens and a penny, and a bunch of mundane junk like keys and stuff. Oh, yeah -- a small pocket knife which is sometimes useful, a book of matches that can be used for several effects, and a nail clipper which can come in handy for making corner shorts in a borrowed deck. Not to mention a wallet with one dollar in it (heck, that's all I have!). And not a single deck of cards, nor even a packet trick.

I usually have on me bicycle cards, a hard thumbtip, and a wallet with money inside (for money tricks of course, coins and dollars is all you need). Also, depending on pocket management, I sometimes carry on me creature, link key, and scotch and soda.

2 flash drives

Usually four half dollars, but not today.

Right now?????

Some lint and cookie crumbs.....

Although if I plan on going out somewhere I may just grab a deck of cards a small pad of paper for Richard Osterlinds Center Tear and a swami gimmick.

Just in case. To much stuff and you become the magic geek! Simon Lovell put it best when he told me this... "If you can't go somewhere and have people like you for yourself than no amount of magic is going to help you out!" "You can't hide behind the magic"
Thanks dad
