    Nothing? Improvised weapons? Anything?

    We're not allowed to carry weapons of any kind. Our best defence is running away.

    The only guns that can be licensed in the UK are sport rifles and in some cases, shotguns. Handguns were banned after the Dunblane school massacre, where a complete nutcase went into a primary school and killed a lot of small children.

    Ooops, sorry, your comment was not addressed to me. But hey, FYI..

    Just like Boston! Are you from Boston? J/K.

    Rifles and shotguns are legal here too but unless you take them apart you can't carry them incuspicuosly. I'd rather have "open carry" like Florida. You don't hear about Florida for gun violence anymore. They have open carry laws.

    In Texas you have to get a concealed handgun license to carry your weapon on you. To keep a gun in your car or home and property you do not. You just need to be able to pass a background check to purchase the firearm.

    I was stationed in Texas for basic training. Safest feeling year of my life.

    I carry intelligence, karma and a fanatical devotion to the pope.

    I'll bet you didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!

    I don't carry any type of weapon for the simple reason that I'd probably end up using it, and I don't think I'd be happy with myself afterwards. You can't undo that.

    I look at it this way ... when I'm standing in front of St. Peter, would I rather tell him that I was hurt in life, or that I hurt someone else? Pain heals, consciences don't.

    That spoiler LOL! @lunatic59. The pope understands and will smooth it out with St. Peter.

    @mikedt No martial arts training except a week of Judo.
    If no one sees a thug pinned in the city will he be arrested?

    Other than my Grandmothers backyard @Tony Mandujano I've been camping twice in my life. A week at Boy Scout camp on the Great Blue Hill in Greater Bpston and a month at Camp Bullis Texas; Airbase Ground Defense Training Camp while I was a Law Enforcement officer in the USAF.

    Other than Security Police traning at Lackland Air Force Base also in Texas those were the only times I handled a firearm as a self defense weapon. Knives are just tools to me.

    I carry a good sense of my surrounding for one and 2ndly depending on the terrain that I'm going to be on with the type of shoes I would be wearing for quick movement if need be. Also keep on hand a 30 round extended clip for my glock 22. I'm glad you ask this question because when I come from out of my Subterranean dwellings, There's always a fear of encountering a idiot with a AR-15 that Wake's up in the morning and decide that he wants to kill himself and wants to take a few people with him.

    Doesn't that magazine extend way out though?

    I don't want to scream "Don't F with Me!" just feel protected.

    Depends what knife, and where you are with it. For instance this probably wouldn't be a problem:

    Whereas this might get you in trouble:

    knife.jpg

    If you had a genuine reason for carrying such a knife then you might be ok.

    And having said all that, the most common offensive weapon used to commit violent crime in the UK is now a knife.

    That I know. Anything over 6 inches blade + handle better be used for cooking. No way using something longer than that is designed for self defense.

    That's some "Crocodile Dundee" schist.

    Wearing red boots and hats will do that.

    That ball would come in handy though.

    Trust me having that type of fire power at the ready gives you a extra sense of security that's unbelievable at least for me.
