it was it was lol a knife in self defense is good just make sure they don't have a gun or ballistic knife
But not if I have marathon or lightweigt, I can get in knife range fast, also it helps to use commando. Besides, if they are far away, I always carry my crossbow.

As long as it's got all that, and the vast majority (including all eight knives discussed at the bottom of this document) do, it cannot be "declared a gravity knife or switchblade" even if you can snap it open with relish Smile. And you can carry it concealed so long as it's concealed in the FULLY closed position, or open-carry if that's your thing (not recommended for BIG stuff, in case you happen on a town with a funky local ordinance or a really cranky cop).

There's no length limit. Seriously Smile."

are you sure that's the knife laws for california? cause I know alot of states (including tx) have a 6" limit (which is huge. I have a knife that's just under six inches and it's enourmous for EDC). also, in using a knife in self defense, it can merely be held in the dominant hand. when you would punch with that hand, use the knife to stab instead, making it a deadly stab when it would've normally been a punch. think of your knife as an extension of your hand (albeit a sharp one).

"Real world" confrontations last mere seconds. If you've ever been involved in a scuffle that involved blades, you'd know that you really don't feel the resulting injuries until afterward when your adrenaline chills. We had a thread going on here and I talked about getting jumped on my way home from school 2 years ago and I didn't feel the cut on my wrist until I got home and saw the blood on my shirt. THAT is why fists and blunt objects will always be more effective (physically) than knives. You will feel a blow to the face or groin in an instant. With that in mind, knives do have a great role in self defense. The psychological effect of seeing a blade in your opponent's hand when you have nothing is enough to make you drop your beef and run...which is why I choose to carry one. The last thing I want to do is get into fists over some crap and I certainly don't want to have to hurt anyone else.

Again, with that in mind, carrying a knife does drastically escalate the situation. You draw a knife, he might have reason to draw a pistol...know what I mean?

Just like anyone can legally carry an unloaded firearm on your hip Very Happy
No lie, you can walk around with an UNLOADED gun on your hip as long as it is licensed and you can legally own it in that state. As long as it isn't concealed.

Probably because it's not in the gun. There so many stupid laws out there that just don't make sense. On of my favs is from the UK were it's legal to kill a Scott in one town if they are carrying a bow and arrows. cheers

In wisconsin Concealed Carry is illegal but you're able to carry firearms in public. And I mean any firearms. You can walk down the street with a loaded AR-15 and the cops can't do squat. Yup..

Yeah sometimes here there are open carry picnics, with a bunch of people just carrying around firearms. I believe not to long ago a hardware store near where I lived kicked a guy out for having a handgun open carry in a holster. That was not a good idea on his part. I pretty sure there are a lot of complaints. I believe Wisconsin and Illinois are the only states that concealed carry is illegal.
