    Maybe, just maybe, you don't know what you're talking about.

    I'd put my experience up against you any day.

    Poser. Push a wheelbarrow much, calling yourself a heavy equipment operator.?

    You ever scrape 500 plus tones of frozen coal out of ships hold, with a spinning floor of death just below and ever looming threat of being crushed and suffocated by the cargo given one false step for 36 hrs straight on more than one occasion?

    Roofing hatchet and firearm are not the same thing... yes you can commit violence with both.

    Walk around with a tool belt loaded with claw hammer and roofing hatchet. Belt pockets loaded with nails for throwing and perhaps a couple or ten of screw drivers. Tape measure to gauge distance if you must (white tool belt).

    Jump on mass transit of choice and feel empowered.

    Why you wanna make it so hard?
    If I were in a toolbelt battle to the death, I'd have my sheet metal hammer in my right hand and duct knife in my left.

    I’ve never understood wannabe melee specialists focusing on zombie knives or wall hangers.

    Industrial tools are the way forward. Pick axe handles for a main weapon and a claw hammer as a back up weapon for example, both are designed to be swung and are tried and tested in the workplace on a daily basis. Plus they’re cheap and widely available and you might be able to argue it with the cops if you have them in your car/van/truck.

    Time was when a butcher or chef could carry their own knives to their places of employment. It was reviewed about 30 years ago when some lemon decided to mug a bloke at a bus stop early in the morning. The intended target pulled out a knife and killed the attacker. It then to trial and the verdict rendered was justifiable homicide. Very rare here in Blighty.

    It led to legislation and so butchers rarely carry any knives whereas chefs do carry their knife sets but must be concealed and they must carry some sort of permit.

    So the decision of the court was that people shouldn't be able to defend themselves and should just die?? Glad I don't live in that backward police state.

    Out of curiosity, was there ever a rationale articulated for the legal restrictions that followed?

    I may not know much about manual labor, giving I am a knowledge worker and all, but I do know that most things are taken out of a ships hold, using a fucking crane.
    I also know most ship operators don't want anyone that has been awake for 36 hours anywhere near there fucking hold with a crane.
