    Intro and Knife Ideas

    Hello all. New to the forum. I'm going for training in a few weeks to get my CC permit.

    I don't think I am going to get a gun right away. I have no experience with guns and would like to get a lot of practice in before I carry a gun. However, I would for sure carry a knife. I would like some ideas as far as a good self defense knife. Being a young guy and a biker, I've been in a few too many situations where having a weapon on me would have made me more comfortable.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome from The Sunshine State!

    What are the laws on knives in Wisconsin?
    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

    Not sure. Wouldn't having a concealed carry permit keep that from making a difference?

    - Not necessarily. Your best bet is to read your state laws.

    Welcome from Delaware! You have to be real close with a knife! I don't really want to be that close if I can avoid it. Of course, I'm probably a lot older than you are.

    Welcome to the forum. Be prepared to learn a lot, I know I have. No doubt you will soon encounter the three S's. If you find yourself in situations where you need a weapon frequently you might think of trying to avoid those situations. Either way knowing the laws of your state is key as others have mentioned.

    My last ditch EDC knife is a waved Spyderco Delica/Endura. People favor them because of how quickly they can be deployed.

    My advice: Avoid those situations where having a weapon on you would make you more comfortable. You don't say much about what those situations are, but hanging out with bikers at biker bars is risky business. Work hard and keep your nose clean so you can live to be an upstanding member of society.
