    Why Carry?

    Is the question I got form a Project Manager today.

    I said since the 2A says it's my right.

    He said he has a knife he carries....And carring a gun is not neccesary...

    LOL

    There are a lot of reasons for carrying. That one is ranked.

    The project managers answer is very lame.

    His knife better be a very large knife that fires a 9mm, .40 or .45 cal. if he wants it to be effective.

    I carry: a gun, a knife, pepper spray, crenalated bezel flashlight, cell phone, notepad. Gives me lots of options that a knife alone doesn't.

    If the VCA (violent criminal actor) is close enough for me to get him with my knife, he's close enough to do me and my loved ones serious harm. There's no stand-off with a knife.

    I second that for sure. You should ask him what he plans to do with his knife when a BG pulls a gun?

    Challenge him to a personal dual at 22' (a hair beyond 21') because you want to see who is quicker. (yes, )

    Tell him to read up on the Tueller Drill if it will make him feel better. I'm not being judgmental here but a knife isn't as good as gun for self defense. an average person can be proficient enough to reliably defend themselves with a handgun in a short time a knife not so much. Is a knife as effective as a gun? No doubt in the right hands maybe if your a navy seal.

    Even Navy SEALS dont bring knives to gunfights.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I can't throw a rock @ 1000 feet per second. And very respectfully our LEO'S can't get here fast enough to protect me and mine.
