    Depends on where you live my friend. In an area where car jackings, muggings, assault and road rage are the norm you would be remiss to think "it will never be me". Hell, I see 12 year old "gang bangers" showing off their gats to me while asking if I want to buy shwag from Mexico. (I am also very polite when I tell them no. They have a name to make yet and cappin' my ass might just help achive that goal.) I bought the Mag-Lite and knife specifically for my truck after two road rage incidents where my off road driving ability kept both my truck and more importantly me out of danger. I've had a gun pulled on me and I've also been jumped enough times to think twice.

    Just because I carry doesn't mean I'm some nut job that's gonna pull out my knife at the drop of a hat either. The law here is very clear on unwarranted brandishing. I'll throw down with fists, elbows, head butts etc. all day long but as soon as the situation warrants it then I will do what I need to do. This isn't Phil **** I'm talking about but reality. My bar fighting days are long gone where fists where more than enough to serve my purposes. If I get in a fight now it's strictly protection of me or somebody I know. I'll post more after I got off work today about my fiance almost getting attacked last month.

    If you live in a place where everybody smiles and sings kumbayah then you are doing good.

    I carry, usually a couple of knives and a pistol...SA M1911A1...colour me old fashioned.

    In North Carolina, you can carry nearly anything as long as you're wearing it openly. I wore my 18" khukuri around town for a week when I first got it. I've also done so with a pistol.

    I don't carry a firearm, I probably should, but it would make my life dificult because most of the places I go on a daily basis don't allow firearms to be taken into them. So if I carried, I would have to leave it somewhere most of the time.

    I am armed at home, office and car though. Firearms at home and office. I have a 3' riot baton in my car at all times, and sometimes other hand weapons. I'm trained to use the baton in 3 Chinese styles.

    Those things are awesome. I managed to pick one up at a military surplus store for ten bucks.
    It just screams: "beat a hippie!"

    The grip kicks ass too. Doing arnis with it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    For me it depends on where I live. When I was in college, I had to live in a scuzzy metro neighboorhood and walk everywhere I went. My glock was my companion back then. I wound up drawing it a few times - strangely not on bums or street rats but on pissed off gangs of frat boys (?!)

    Now that I live in rural Kansas, I don't worry and I don't carry. If I go to Kansas City, I am armed - period. It all depends on your situation. Guys like Canuck who live in suburban Canada probably don't know what it's like to live in an area where you're constantly being stared at and sized up by miscreants and I bet in that context carrying would be absurd.

    I used to live in the ground floor of a hotel at Main and Hastings streets in Vancouver.

    Anybody that's ever been there will tell you it's not the nicest place to hang out, let alone live.

    I never carried down there. No idea why not, I just didn't feel the need.

    however, My room-mate once walked to the store with a Big ol' wood axe.
    The cops kindly asked him to leave his axe at home. SERIOUSLY.

    It is no more paranoid than walking around with a riot baton.
    Besides, it operates on the same principals as a sword cane, and is a great way to stop a fight before it starts.
    Or after it starts.
    You can find one at swordsofhonor.com, they are pretty cool.
