If you had been there for our entire discussion you would have dfinitely heard your position discussed. The sharpest knife in the world is of little good to a novice.

However, we also discussed physical conditioning (which I have approached with a new regard over the past three months) and the mental aspects of readiness and even 'will.'

These are of more importance, I believe. For example, my wife is surrounded by very good equipment, and has been for over three decades. I think there would be tears in her eyes if she had to pull a trigger. And by that I mean during the exchange, not as a part of PTSD.

To be honest, some people and situations just tick me off. And I mean in a more visceral mode. It centers in some form of unfairness, usually to a smaller person or animal. I never cared for bullies, probably because my own Father tried it--once too often.

During these limited incidents of exchange it will be a good bet that all I'll have is a HD-7 and some type of off-body .380 ACP. You run what you brung. And since local laws and attitudes limit my choices, even as a good guy, you must perfect your edges.

Knife as a secondary weapon?

No, I do carry a CRKT Kasper, a Schrade Uncle Henry, and a cheap o maxam knife. Oh, and the Leatherman Super Tool or the Gerber Diesel. Not one of these is a weapon, all tools.
