My employer wants me to be defenseless....
so they will not allow firearms on company property.
I work the afternoon shift at a large hospital in the Denver area, and live in a nearby apartment building. Lately, the walk home at 11:30 PM has become increasingly more interesting. There seems to be a lot more deadbeats hanging around than usual, and I'm spending more time thinking about my personal safety.
Since firearms are forbidden at work, I think that my self-defense options are pretty much limited to flashlight, pepper spray, and knife. I have a Brinkman Maxfire flashlight, but don't have a good pepper spray or knife yet.
I am looking for a Fox Labs dealer in the Denver area for the spray, but I would like some advice from this forum about the knife.
I'm limited in Colorado to a 3 1/2 inch blade...and I "think" that I would prefer a fixed blade knife with an inside-the-waistband kydex sheath, but am open to consider a good folder that would be easy to operate. Does anyone have any ideas for a knife novice?
Also, I have the oportunity to attend a knife training class in September with a fellow known as "SouthNarc"....does anyone have any personal experience or knowledge about his class?
Thanks to all for any input.
