    How would you protect yourself? At home, on the street, or in a vehicle what would you choose and why?

    I carry a large tanto style locking folder. Durable, sharp and easy to open with one hand.

    In my Jeep I have a sharpened Cold Steel special forces shovel. Good tool, will slash like a sword or chop like a hatchet and looks like a shovel not a weapon.

    Next to nightstand I have a Wakizashi style short samurai sword. Shorter blade easier to wield in a room. Still enough to strike at a distance and slash, stab or chop up a burglar etc.

    In the car, I'd carry a teenager-sized metal baseball bat, along with a ball and glove for a covering excuse.

    At home, just the bat.

    On the street, probably a telescoping baton kept in a pocket.

    By "couldn't own a gun" do you mean "couldn't own a gun LEGALLY" or "you live in a world where guns don't exist."

    Not that I'm implying anything...

    I'm a decent shot with my bow and arrow setup for longish range. For up close quarters, short bladed sword all the way. And bear pepper spray.

    I have always had a strange fascination with blades.
    So my handy dandy Buck-Knife would be strapped on.
    A baton may break bones if used properly, but can be defended against easier than a madman with a BIG KNIFE!!!:swordfight:

    Once again let me praise this brilliant design! Google it; it's even in the Cabela's catalog. It's all metal, shaped like a snubby revolver for a very natural fire. It has a quite positive safety, and a BRIGHT LED light that blinds an attacker and focuses the spray on the target just like a pistol lazer does--the spray hits right where the light centers. It fires from any angle, does not need shaking, fires a strong focused spray, and has an honest-to-gawd twenty-foot reach! This is what I carry when I cannot carry a pistol.........................elsullo :thumbup:

    I agree! If we lost all our gun rights, I wouldn't give anything up. Otherwise, I guess I would carry a baseball bat in my truck like I used to when I lived in the People's Republic of California.
