Your thumb is a fantastic tool, especially if you don't care if you ever have to use it for anything else again.


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.

Knives in WI have been de-classified as weapons unless used as such , this happened in DEC 2016.
including automatic opening knives aka switch blades.

I wish there was an easy way to figure out what is legal & what isn't

I have lost most of my faith in my fellow man, and have exactly zero in my government. I go nowhere without a 7" AR15 pistol with either a 30 or a 100 round mag in it, its no longer the world I grew up in.

It varies by state as far as legality goes. The automatic switchblades are illegal in Virginia. Go to smoky mountain knife works.com for knife law breakdown by state.

I recall a billy club is listed in the weapons you may carry on your WI-CCL also electric weapon , pepper spray , knives ,

I found this reference in the text

https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/related/acts/35
948.60 (1) In this section, "dangerous weapon" means any firearm, loaded or unloaded; any electric weapon, as defined in s. 941.295 (4) (1c) (a); metallic knuckles or knuckles of any substance which could be put to the same use with the same or similar effect as metallic knuckles; a nunchaku or any similar weapon consisting of 2 sticks of wood, plastic or metal connected at one end by a length of rope, chain, wire or leather; a cestus or similar material weighted with metal or other substance and worn on the hand; a shuriken or any similar pointed star-like object intended to injure a person when thrown; or a manrikigusari or similar length of chain having weighted ends.


the thing is what is and isn't actually useful

All I can tell you is when going through the process of gaining access to a Federal building and they ask if you have any weaponsÖdonít say, none that are conventional, lol.
A pen can be used as a weapon. A credit card thatís been shaved down on one edge will slice skin easily, even deep enough to do lethal damage. Shoestrings, belts, even rolled up paper can be used as a weapon. A laptop to the head or throat will do damage. Most carry weapons without realizing they can be used as weapons if the need arises.

I'm kind of a freak with this protection stuff. I don't think its fear, I'm just into it and like it.

To answer your questions, there appears to be very few restrictions on martial arts weapons. Numchucks seem to be illegal in Massachusetts, but what isn't? I don't include brass knuckles. Some states have some funny knife laws.

For home defense, and personal protection, I get a little crazy. What I am having a lot of fun with is training a German Shepard for protection. A really well trained dog is a great thing for the home. I have a neighbor that has trained a lot of police dogs helping me and I really enjoy it and really love my dog. His name is Glock and Glock will be a wonderful Grand Baby sitter around the farm.

I made the mistake of having my Oldtimer in my pocket going thru the airport last week. Just wasn't thinking ahead. I told the arse to give it to his Grandson.

Most martial arts weapons were farming tools not weapons , early arms control common people were not permitted the use of Weapons in those countries of origin.

so to say that there were better weapons 2000 years ago than most of those martial arts weapons is an understatement by design they are modified farming tools from many centuries back.

A small halogen fire extinguisher can come in handy and legal to the best of my knowledge. One shot to the face will take their breath away along with any fight they may have in them.

Razor blades embedded in the skip of a cap was a common street gang weapon back in the day in Dublin.
It was an offensive street fighting weapon,not defensive.
You whip it across the forehead of your opponent and when the blood streams down into his eyes you set about him.

Not used today much I dont think,last I heard a lot of the street gangs in Dublin use mastiffs or pit bulls.


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

I made the wife some monkey fist out of para ford and a larger marble she keeps on her key ring, also one with a pool ball, to large on the key ring but keeps it to side console of her car door. Never had to use but on a dog and to my surprise the one with the marble did some damage. I'm sure the one with a pool ball would flat lay some one out and mess something's up
