Wonder if that dude had a CCB permit for that bat?
Why is it that you always find things at the last place you looked?
Because when you find something-you stop looking-Mooch
If you are going to be security-minded, forget about the distinction between when there's no one around and when there's lots of people around. That pretends as if no one has ever been attacked when there were lots of people around. Of course they have.
You are not protected by the presence of others in the vicinity. You are protected when you are protected. That means that you either have a bodyguard, or are your own bodyguard. Do you really let down your guard just because you're in a very public place?
Sure, attacks happen more frequently in dark, secluded areas. That is just a preponderance, though -- not a guarantee.
I would add that just because you don't see a bat in a person's possession, that's also no reason to feel assured that they present no danger to you. What about a concealed knife? A concealed handgun? A concealed wrench, ice pick, sharp stick . . . ?
But then it became apparent that the design sucks. I mean, really sucks. The blade simply is NOT able to be held in place securely, not even when you use Loc-tite on the screw. (And you shouldn't have to use a screw on a knife with a replaceable blade. There should be provision for a quick-release.)
I have mine sitting on a shelf, now. Can't rely on that blade staying put. Anyone else have this problem?
