    Hello from L.A., CA

    Great to be on board. Live in L.A. Have owned guns and knives since I was a kid. My Dad who was a career U.S. Army MP taught me how to shoot and keep weapons properly maintained, safety, how to sharpen knives (i remember when everyone knew how), He collects old colt 45's from the Western days- pretty expensive hobby. I own quite a few firearms Glock and Sigs being my favorite pistols. Every gun I own is legal and locked up at my brothers house since he has a massive gun safe. I do keep my Glock 30 handy. I never carry unless I'm at a legal range since I'm not law enforcement. I strictly obey all the laws and never have been arrested for anything. Lately, I have been getting more into blades. I will only buy what I can legally carry. I'm really looking for a good EDC. (seems like I always am) fixed or folding. Open to any input thanks.

    Welcome to the forum from the north half! Sorry to hear that you are in an area where only the criminals can carry. It's good that you have a place to shoot though.

    Welcome from Alabama.

    I carry a Spiderco Delica 4 with Emerson opener. Great knife and with a bit of practice you can get into action quickly. I really like this knife..........

    Good luck in your search.
