OK...I know... This is going to bring up visons of a leather jacketed, greasy haired, street corner punk. ....My son-in-law sent me a very fancy knife from Thailand. When I showed to my brother (an retired motor cop) he said you can't carry that. It's a switch blade. I said why not? I have a concealed weapons permit. His responce was, You have a "Permit to Carry a Concealed Pistol". :huh:....YUP! Thats what it says across the top, "Pistol".aranoid: Anyone got any comments?
