In this installment of Everyday Carry, we take a look at the EDC setup of tactical and law enforcement trainer Aaron Cowan. Aaron’s EDC, like most others, has been refined by experience, new technology, training and need before want. His EDC is shaped accordingly. Aaron is currently the lead instructor for Sage Dynamics here in the United States. He has served three years in the U.S. Army and four in the National Guard, worked as a private security contractor, and served as In-Service training officer and Special Reaction Team leader at the Department of Defense. Aaron was responsible for Special Reaction Team training and qualifications as well as instruction and control of the SRT Sniper Section. Aaron is a member of the National Tactical Officers Association and the International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors.
