    Aloha ALL,

    I don't have one yet, but I should be getting a NUKO Fob from HERE soon!

    On the job, we are not issued impact weapons...only our elbows, knees, fists, palms, etc...

    God bless and be safe!

    My balisong, karambit, and CRKT knives, with the blades unopened. My wooden kubotanesque keychain. Any pen or pencil of suitable length and shaft strength.

    You don't carry anything other than a deadly force option?

    I just use my Surefire(s) as my impact weapon anymore. I used to pack a 21" el cheapo telescoping baton but the tip segment got to where it wouldn't stay open and I wasn't keen with the thought of the weight potentially shifting in mid-swing.

    And I'd rather spend $120 on ammo than a decent baton with the goodies I'd want for it...

    You sound surprised. It's not unusual for a CCW'er to not carry less than lethal (physical) options. I consider my head my first less than lethal option. Then it's mano y mano. I'm not trained to use any of that stuff anyway. I could do OC, but my pockets are already pretty full.

    If things are so bad that I can't get away with a few bumps and bruises, then it's time for the lethal option anyway.

    Do you really believe that your knuckle things will be as effective as a firearm? I don't plan on getting into a confrontation where I will need a firearm either...but I'd rather be more than arm's length from the BG than upclose and personal. Sometimes BG's are just flat out interested in hurting you before they take your stuff. I'm not convinced that just walking away, as you describe, will be an option.

    Like I said, I'd rather stay several feet, or even yards, away from an assialant if possible. But I do always carry "other" weapons as well, my firearm is most prominant.

    For a while I carried a sort of home made kubaton. It was about 4 1/2" long, 3/4" diameter steel pin from some piece of equipment in our motor pool (don't know what, it was lying on the ground).

    I took a bench grinder to each of the ends at a 45 degree angle so it was left with a flat point approximately 1/4".

    Then I took some parachute cord and tied about six double bight turk's heads around it for grip. It was really quite clever and I'll see if I can remember to post some pics.

    I eventually stopped carrying it for a variety of reasons (chief among those being weight)

    Everyone carries impact and edged weapons all the time, they just don't see them for what they are.

    My CRKT Hissatsu folder makes a nice striking tool while in the closed position, there's just enough handle sticking out on the top and bottom my my closed fist, a hammer style blow to the temple with that thing should do the trick if I ever need it.

    In Texas, the jaw jacker is illegal, as are all knuckle type weapons. You can get by with the keypsafe, because it is an open loop design, but anything with knuckles is trouble.

    I carry a flashlight, knife, .357 (a multi role impact weapon), and two size 11 boondockers (boots for you non Navy folks). In my youth I carried 215lbs of bad attitude and I wasn't afraid of a few bumps and bruises. Now I'm usually carrying a one or three year old. So my primary goal is avoidance. I just can't see myself in a scuffle anymore. If I'm in fear of injury to myself or my family they are just going to get shot.

    Naw man just my knucks and it doesnt matter to me if a BG is right in my face or a few feet away like i said if he doesnt have a gun he goes down im very strong and grappled in high school then its an option of either me punching him a few with the jj's or he can get a piece of my steel toe combat boots.

    Too many gun carriers lack respect for edged weapons.

    Another great target when using an impact weapon is the collar bone. Makes the arm pretty useless.
