What do I carry?
Hands and feet mostly. Been in martial arts since college back in the '70s.
I guess, this being Texas, I could pack my Blackjack knife. It's a 5.45 inch fixed blade fighter (they don't make it anymore.) See a fixed blade has many advantages over a folder and in Texas the legal limit is below 5 1/2 inch. Hence the 5.45 inch (measured with capers from tip to hilt.)
And I might add pepper spray to that to.
