    Carry a Boker Plus Credit Card - Same size as a ZIPPO closed up and it would be a much more effective "last ditch" self-defensive weapon.
    Much better for having a crack at the jugular than a lighter.

    I would feel really silly to be sitting there with my last ditch weapon and finding out I forgot to bring my lighter.

    The only way I would use a lighter is if it was one of the ones made from an old hand grenade. Then I would work it over until it was a hand grenade again. That would be a great self defense weapon, but not too close. It would certainly put a dent in a mob wanting to play knock out with your head.

    Last ditch weapon? Oh, you mean like the type of weapon that I carry on airline flights? A hickory club.. It started out as a maul handle and after a bit of work with a lathe, it became a round tapered cane shaft that I then put a cast iron head on.

    Legally the TSA can't ask me why I need a cane, but if they did, I've got 5 ft of scars on one of my legs and parts of my torso that can easily corroborate my need for it... (ex-military, and was in the wrong place as the wrong time)

    I don't smoke but carry a lighter because others do. Women seem to like it when a guy offers to light their cigarette.
    Plus, you never know when you might need to burn somebody's house down...

    I carry a zippo everyday and have for 12 years...amazing that I've had anything for that long without losing it. Aside from my wife of course.lol Anyhow, now I don't leave home without it and I always have flints nearby whether in house or in my truck. I think its a good tool to have, probably not for hurling or hitting anyone with though.

    I'm a big fan of carrying around objects that I have no use for with their intended purposes, just in case I want to use them for something else. Like tampons and maxipads, I'm not a woman, but if you've ever been somewhere with no means of cleaning up a spill, you feel pretty helpless. They have great absorbancy, are dirt cheap, and can be replaced in most any bowling alley restroom, rest stops, and health club locker rooms.

    For real though, a tampon is the greatest plug for a bleeding nose, period.

    The lighter would be good if you planned to use your vehicle as a last-ditch Molotov Cocktail... I guess...

    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    Exactly, the uses outside of their intended purposes are endless.

    Also great as a compress or bandage for severe injuries after a traffic accident.

    I quit smoking in 1970, but I still carry a weather-proof butane. A man should always have knife and fire. I never thought of using it as a weapon, just survival if I have to spend the night outside.
