I don't carry anything in my pants pockets because I like to turn the front pockets out and tell everyone I will do my impression of an elephant. LOL But seriously, I carry 5 nickles and 4 pennies for coins thru table and sympathetic coins. I have a coin purse with four half dollars and shell for coins across. A few packet tricks(Doubleback, Capitulating Cards, Marked Cards, and Ultimate Backflips) and a regular deck with one r/b db card.

Probably been mentioned. But if you have the Invisible Deck you are set to go. Also if you have the room a Stebbins stack deck with the Invisible Deck can be unbelievable.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

A deck of cards, it's easy to remember and gives me a wide selection of effects.

I usually forget to bring anything else.

Money, rubber bands, sanada, business card, 3 card monte, 2 gimmicks it all fits in my wallet. I also have a couple of gimmicked credit cards for fun.
Routines I perform are
1. $50 production
2. Crazy Mans Handcuffs
3. 3 card monte - in their hands version
4. Matchbox mambo - if I can find matchboxes in the restaurant
5. Standing Card (Gaeten bloom effect)
This gives me 10 minutes of "show us a trick" if I get asked.
Used to carry the pothole trick also.

To be honest, the only things I "always" carry, are a pack of cards and a few good-sized coins.

There are so many things you can do with coins and bills!
3. Deck of Cards (two if one is gimmicked)
4. TT with Red Silk
5. Loops or IT Reel

I'm ALWAYS wearing rubber bands for "Crazy Man's Handcuffs".
I try to carry spongeballs/sponge bunnies with me.
I've recently been wearing STS and...
I carry a Hot Rod or Scotch & Soda, sometimes.

So...I guess those would be my top five, even if STS doesn't come out of my pocket. Also..."abercrombe" that is a disgusting/funny "elephant impression" comment.

In my pocket- A pack of cards and my wallet.

In the wallet- 2 rubber bands, 4 halves and 1 English penny, a small envelope w/ a prediction, and (soon) Extreme Burn.

1. B'Wave (my "quick trick")
2. Entourage (for when I have more time)
3. Deck of Cards (I do Dr. Daley's Last Trick most often, though.)
4. Skinner's 3 Card Monte

I'll be getting NFW soon and maybe a longer trick by John Bannon, so let's see if those make it into the "always on me" category.

I don't have NFW, but if it plays like the demos I've seen, it should be "always on you." Smile
