Hey everyone. Been following this thread for awhile; lots of great info.
My brother was at our mom's house with his dog in her backyard when the next door neighbor's pitbull jumped the block wall and attacked his dog. He stopped it in time before it fucked his dog up, and he fucked the pitbull up, but it got me thinking about my lack of protection when I'm out riding my mt bike on trails or riding to work.
I have pistols and what not, but don't see any real way of carrying it without it popping out of the holster from being banged around on trails. I used to carry it in my bag but I would have to get off the bike, open the bag, and grab the gun before I could use it. Plus I ride by a few schools on the way to work and I'd rather not get in trouble for carrying a gun so close by.
So I had this old knife laying around and test attached it to the shoulder strap of the bag. It works, but it is a pretty big F'n knife and I feel it looks a bit ridiculous. I thought about using a smaller knife like the S&W one shown, but it isn't too secure when it's clipped onto the "anchor points," at least where it is easily accessible with one hand while riding.
This is more for protection against wild animals and what not that you encounter when riding around. I know it's better to look ridiculous and have it it than look fine and not have it when you need it.
Opinions? I guess I could just find a knife about 2/3s the size of this one but I'd rather use what I already have. What do you guys do when riding around?
Figured this was the thread to put this in since the mountain bike one is more about just posting pics of your bike.
