Need to get around a "no weapons" policy.
The company I drive for has a policy against weapons. I travel the Midwest region and frequently make pre-dawn deliveries in undesirable areas. I also have to spend a lot of nights in rough looking areas. 2 of my co-workers have been robbed over the past few months. One was hog tied in Indianapolis and the other was pistol whooped in Flint, MI.
Since pepper spray isn't permitted I keep a can of wasp spray within reach of my bunk along with a tire thumper. What I need is something I can have accessible while I'm outside unloading my trailer. I can't have a knife with more than a two inch blade. Do they make defensive knives that small and would it even be worth it? At home I carry my pistol and avoid areas that I don't feel comfortable in. Unfortunately I don't have either option at work. Any tips on innocent looking defense weapons would be greatly appreciated.
