    All I really wanted was wildlife protection up through Yukon Territories.
    LOL, the steel/glass cage wasn't good enough?

    I carry a cheap Gerber folder with a sturdy sort of hard rubber grip a 3" nonserrated blade. I live in the DC metro area, not entirely sure on the laws on weapons, and frankly I don't feel that threatened; I'm a 25 year old white male who carries no cash most of the time, I don't have much to really worry about defending. In the highly unlikely scenario that I am attacked and decide it's prudent to pull a weapon, I have it and I do train knife fighting.

    Also, as an aside, I'm legally blind. If someone were to break into this apartment I would have no issue getting to the 357, Glock, or Walther PP; I can hit a coke can at 20 feet- amazingly enough- a human sized target is not an issue. What is an issue is knowing whats further down range and the ability to properly distinguish targets; in here I know that the body that doesn't belong is as good as a bullet magnet, but on a street, in a subway, at a retaurant or shop- in a target rich environment- I can't be sure.

    I don't imagine I'll ever be packing.

    I know you don't actually need the stick, but you should carry one anyway. I knew an old arnis master that didn't need a walking stick, but he walked around with one so he always had a weapon in his hand.

    In elementary and middle school I was trained to use the blind cane and issued one by the state. I think I still have it somewhere.

    It doesn't feel right using it. The only time it really comes in handy is out in broad, bright daylight, I would put it away when I get in doors and frankly I don't think people would really be able to wrap their heads around how I was using a cane outside to cross the street but as soon as I get in doors I'm reading the paper and window shopping.

    I would look like an even bigger idiot with a walking cane.

    This little shop downstairs sells extendable battons, just about the length of the khali sticks I've trained with.

    I've seen a moose car collision completely take out a car and leave the moose mortally injured. It's more humane to shoot it in that situation.

    Brown bears can open up pretty much anything they want to in the way of vehicles. We also had food in the vehicle for traveling.

    So I'd pretty much say no, it's not good enough in my opinion.

    You're anti-gun then?

    Not really anti-gun, but if you're afraid of the big bad Grizzly bears getting you inside your car, I reserve the right to laugh at you. The moose thing is just patently ridiculous.

    Whatever. Fear and preparation are miles apart. I'm not going to leave myself and family unprotected.

    What kind concealed nasties to you carry?

    Pretty much when ever I leave the house I'm carrying this little aluminum and titanium jewel stoked with five +P Golden Sabers...



    It's not much, but because it's light and easy to carry, it's there when I need it.
