    I think knife blade-length laws are silly, especially when I can legally carry a gun (or two) there.

    Don't get me wrong - short knives are very handy - I often carry a MOD Ladyhawk with my BM Mini-Stryker.

    I saw Rock City.

    Me....have a lead foot......no way. It was the cops fault for pulling me over for speeding, just kidding (don't worry, I wasn't pulled over this past weekend for speeding, that was about a month ago.)
    Oh, and to the dismay of Betty I carried a knife over the limit that GA law allows and had no problems....

    Oh, and I actually fit through fat mans squeeze at Rock City.....amazing huh?

    If you want to carry a knife over the legal limit, you do so at your own risk. We don't openly condone skirting the law here (though I mostly reserve the smack-down for openly advocating breaking the handgun carry laws), as silly as laws can be.

    You guys are probably right that most cops won't care if you're carrying a blade a bit "too long" if you're obviously not up to any trouble. I have heard horror stories where grouchy cops have taken them. Mrshonts, considering you were risking the knife you were toting was the nice Benchmade I gifted to you... shame, shame!
