I went to 1 of the midwest's biggest flea markets yesterday. It was in Hatfielfd. I was surprised by all the unique self defense tools on sale..numchucks, swords, brass nuckles, throwing stars, knives, and saps. I had never heard of a sap (aka Blackjack) before. The guy w/ me was a retired police officer. He said some officers used to carry saps years ago. I wonder if all these tools are legal, to possess &/or carry. Maybe it makes a difference if a person has a concealed carry permit. While all defense tools take practice, I imagine the throwing star maybe requires the most practice. It was an intereresting event.

knuckles/saps most likely illegal in most states.

Same as firearms. Free states enjoy more liberty than democrat ones.

All of those items are legal to own and carry here.

Many things can be used as a weapon and are legal to carry.

Learn to use your fists.
Always available and always concealed until you curl your fingers.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

A quart Yeti bottle with the big D ring handle makes a FINE weapon! It can be greatly improved with a P cord lanyard that goes around your wrist. Mine weighs about 4 pounds full of water and blends in well.


I have nothing clever to put here.

If anyone in the communications industry knows what a Butt Set is, when I have to work in prisons I carry it by the leads. Company policy is to comply and not resist. Unfortunately that is not in my DNA. Anything can be used as a weapon when things go South.

Rock in a sock, or a reasonable facsimile thereof.
The only reason that I go South of the WI/IL border is for better is for better golf courses.
Otherwise unless I have been drinking, I am packing.
If anyone accuses you of fighting fair, your tactics suck.


I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. O Lord please don't let me be misunderstood.

Thats how it's done in Canada where you don't have the right to self defense.

You'd like my definition of a fair fight. If I win, it was fair. If the other guy wins, he cheated. The only time you should worry about a fair fight is if it is a competition.

Gun in front pocket, brass knuckles in the back. If it comes to where I need either, Iím not really worried about legal or not. The whole goal is to walk away and not be carried away.

I carry a sledgehammer handle in my truck. Broke the head off a few years ago and figured it would make a good weapon of convenience. I'd turn over my wallet, watch, cell phone... but after that, if they wanted to 'play', they're fighting for their life, I'm not fighting for mine.

Butt set, pole prod, big screwdriver, line wrench, multiple choices in a tool pouch.
