    You said, "often'?, I say I would be scouting out another apartment in a different part of town

    I am sort of a fan of such weapons. what make and forge?
    I like Paul Chen's stuff (Well I like Howard Clark and Mike Bell but at a 6 year wait and 7 grand one of each is about my limit) and the Stuff Paul makes for James Williams )Bugei trading company)



    Cold steel's katanas are heavy but they really are great cutters and the mono-heat treatment actually works great for beaters like that sword

    Why is it that the people with absolutely no knowledge of weapons are the ones who get to make the laws about weapons?
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    for the same reason they get to make laws about everything else they don't know anything about, I suppose.


    I remember seeing an AR-15 style rifle from California that required a special tool or key to press the magazine release.

    First thing I thought was: If that weapon has any malfunction that requires practically any manipulation beyond a "tap, rack, bang," the shooter would have to fiddle around with a special key and a loaded weapon just to remove the magazine and put the weapon back into a safe condition.

    All just because some stupid gaggle of politicians, who know nothing about the weapon, were scared that somebody might actually be able to quickly change magazines after emptying the first. In reality, they just made it impractical and dangerous in an everyday situation, and for no good reason.

    I think we're done here.

    Re: Self defense: How prepared are you?

    This is from an actual scenario? A black thug was wearing a blue polo shirt? Seriously? OK, I'll play:

    I carry an 11 inch KRISS blade <ahem> spring-assisted <cough> knife in my left rear pocket. I use my right hand to divert attention so the left hand can bury the knife in suspect #1. The screaming agony from suspect #1 should cause suspect #2 to run away. Then I'd call 911 and tell them to send the coroner.

    I'd presume the strippers had arrived.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    2. Take out thug 1
    3. Dog takes out thug 2
    4. Check for weapons on downed thugs
    5. Call lawyer

    7. Government gang bangers question my citizenship, attempt to tie me to a gang, attempt to strip away my pistol permit, make my life a living hell however not as much as they like because of said lawyer
    8. Avoid jail time (hopefully)
    9. Go back to work

    Why should the laws they create regarding weapons be any different from all the other laws they create?

    The problem is, you do not care for the laws regarding guns.
    Why do do some studying to find the reason ?
    Its logical that the lawmakers know as much as you and I , perhaps even more.
    But I do agree that many details can be improved upon.
