    Question Flying to Ontario Canada, can't carry, no knife...

    Okay, what do I do? I don't like the idea of being unarmed in a foreign country for a week. Any suggestions from you fequent travellers. This is the first time I'll be flying commercial and I'm not looking forward to it. I'm thinking I'll be armed with a ball point pen. Are those allowed on planes? Any words of advice and wisdom are appreciated. Thanks.

    I usually have several decent pens and the new led mini-mag flashlight in my laptop bag. I got the light that takes three AA batteries so it does have some size to it and yet does not look like a weapon. I've heard people travel with a nice surefire such as the E2D led but I'd hate to lose one of those to some over zealous TSA agent. The mini-mag was about $25 at Lowes. The mini-mag is very bright (3 bat version) for the price.

    Good luck.

    Once you get there, buy a knife.

    do what the inmates used to do at the prison and make one out of styrofoam. You would be amazed at what folding the stuff over, laying some heat to it and sharpening it on the concrete will make

    Hmm... hadn't thought of that one. Hit the local whatever and buy a cheap blade. Can't take it home but who cares. Good thinkin'.

    I'm on the road just about 50% of the year....a good surefire or blackhawk flashlight will be a good defense at night time, just clip it to your pocket. also a steel barrel pen is a decent tool. cheap blades are a good idea as long as there's not special rules in the city you're heading to.

    Why can't you take the knife home with you??

    Just put it in your checked luggage for your return.

    You can carry a knife in your checked luggage, a lock blade is fine, but it can't be spring assist if I recall correctly. You can also go to an outdoor store and get "dogspray" Not as strong as the stuff you are allowed but it helps. Remember if questioned by police, the knife is a standard tool for opening boxes and the spray is for fending off dogs, don't tell them it's for bad people, or they will take it away from you.

    Just don't go to Canada - or for that matter IL. or WI. It could be dangerous to your health.

    BTW

    The mayor of Toronto wants to close all the shooting ranges in his city. He claims it'll make the streets safer!

    I travel some bit, so here's .02 cents more. If domestic- I always carry my folder and check it in my suitcase. I wouldn't try it international.

    I've had some plantar fasiaitis (sp?) which is pain in your heel, and carried a cane. I learned how handy that was and ordered a proper one. Walking Canes for mobility, self defense, exercise and rehabilitation - by Cane Masters That will be my regular airplane tool for sure! Also check out Lightfoot Combat Pen - LCP-TL700 I thought of that pen as a backup, or for close encounters, I may even sign autographs with it.
