    Since I don't carry on campus, I'm looking into a fixed blade, automatic, or an ASP.

    I think that the ASP is probably the best choice. Blade length is bad breath distance, ASP a bit further off.

    Opinions, experiences, death threats?


    Auto:

    AK-74 automatic folder Pros: inexpensive, nice looking, auto. Cons: Extreme close in distance, still takes time to clear pocket and open

    http://www.knivesplus.com/boker-ak-74-knife-bk-kals74b.html damn.. 30 bucks!

    Fixed:

    Benchmade 220SBK fixed blade Pros: Benchmade quality, sexy design, quickly deployable, outside pocket, quicker draw. Cons: Benchmade price, still frowned on on campus, extremely close deployment distance.

    ASP:

    ASP F16F Federal 16" Tex/Foam Pros: Impact weapon, nonlethal, deterrent presence in deployment, moderately expensive, expands conflict distance. Cons: Heavy...?

    Personally I'd go with the automatic. I find fixed blades to be uncomfertable to carry and that baton looks heavy. Fixed blades might draw some :ugh: faces if you use it for some random tast during the day, whereas a folder may seem a bit more normal. That's just my opinion though :dunno:

    It's debatable, borderline here in this fucked up state.. but, that or deep concealment of a firearm which is not worth losing my ability to carry said firearm.

    instead of the AK automatic folder, go with an automatic AK underfolder.

    What the shit is that? It looks like a single toothed Kubotan or something.

    Is it heavy? Sharpened?

    I believe it.

    I don't know if I want to retrain with a foreign weapon though. I'm comfortable with knife and stick.

    I'm leaning toward the the automatic. Hard to beat thirty bucks for a passable automatic.

    I choose porn, but I as far as a non-gun weapon goes, I'd probably prefer something with a little more range than a pocket knife. baton first, knife second.
     
  17. Not to ruin your fun here but why would you need an ASP? Are you security or something?

    I just bought the AK-74 auto one. Hope it's decent, I guess I can't go to wrong for $30 shipped.
