I did learn an interesting fact, in my state, my CCW allows me to legally carry a switchblade.
I am not disputing that in anyway but remember that perception is reality. If God forbid you do have to use it in self defense, it would look much better in front of a judge if you used a regular utility knife than a switch; at least that is what a lawyer told me once.
That's the same reason that the only time I have ever shot at a silhouette target was to qualify for my CCW. The range I use would back me up. It all goes towards plausible deniability about your intentions if the need for defense ever arises. I've worked hard to establish a reputation as a peaceful person who believes in being prepared.

What loads are you using in that one Missa, i'v been trying out the Fiocchi 125gr JHP's in the 100 and they seem a tad bit hotter than the Federals.

I live in California and they are illegal but I still do. In reality the only thing a cop would do is take it from me say I am doing you a favor by not arresting you and keep it for himself. I say that because I seen it happen to two buddies already.

I'm not so violent person so I rather to carry a baton an asp baton brand. The ASP Tactical Baton is the most tactically sophisticated impact weapon currently available to law enforcement personnel. Tested by the most elite federal teams, the ASP Baton has proven itself "virtually indestructible." This is the first choice of the world's most tactically advanced law enforcement agencies. Easily carried and readily available, ASP Batons have an incredible psychological deterrence and unparalleled control potential. The premium materials, exceptional workmanship and flawless function of the ASP Baton sets it apart from all others in quality, durability and performance. In every detail, this is the finest impact weapon produced.

It also looks better in court than a knife. :D

I would prefer my Taurus .357 than a baton, you have to get pretty close to use one of those things, and what would happen if the bad guy took it away from you? Jim
