It was basically a .38 revolver with a modified cylinder. As far as one could tell though it looked real enough and saved my ass from a nice Turkish beating. Fuckers thought I was a neo nazi with my military hair cut.

    BURN! lol.

    I carry a utility knife in my backpack pretty much all the time. Does that count?

    It's my Al Qaeda stilletto. That's right, I said it.

    Too bad you misspelled it. :tongue3:

    I, too, live in the wonderfully restrictive LA county, so no CCW for me. But I make up for it by carrying two folding fighters daily, unless I'm going to Saturday's NoHo DB class, then just one, but accompanied by a bag full of rattan sticks.

    In my jeep, the only additional weapon is my "The Club" steering wheel lock.

    At home, I have the .45 Glock 21, a .38 derringer, a .22 magnum revolver, 4-5 swords, a machete, 15 non-kitchen knives, a bunch of taped pipe, shitloads of rattan sticks & staffs and one genuine attack kitty.

    I'm fairly comfortable with every weapon in my inventory.

    Ouch.

    I actually have one of these that was intended as a gift for someone else, but they got one before i could give them mine, so i'm left with an extra 'club'. I should practice with it.

    A valid question. Don't worry, that's not the kind of thing I would take offense to.

    In all honesty? I have no training in how to properly use a knife (except in the kitchen, where I am SMOOTH baby). It's a tactical folder I carry as a utility knife. I grew up in the boonies and it just seems weird not to have one around at all times.

    I'd like to learn how to properly handle a blade, but there's no competent edged weapon instruction in the area that I've been able to find, so I'm kind of stuck at this point.

    To be honest, I don't even really think of it as a weapon, just something to cut things with if they need cut. Shortsighted perhaps, but I live in a pretty tame area. I guess it's just kind of low on my list of priorities right now . . .

    Wow!

    How is it we poke fun at a guy like Phil who walks around with key-chain flashlights? When, I wonder more about this strange need that people have to arm themselves when they run out to Blockbuster.

    "Because you never know" right guys?

    We don't own a website devoted to self defense against homeless people and black dudes.

    Personally, I carry a knife for utility above anything else. Have you tried opening a package without one? And having to go to my room or the kitchen to get a knife is a lot of work too, so I just keep one on me.

    Yeah, and it's a real pain in the ass if they manage to escape while you're out of the room.
