I do not

But there’s a case to be made for it: Do you carry a backup gun?

    See my comment from a few weeks back. I’ve usually got a 9mm or .45 on my hip, and when that runs out, I use the .380 in my pocket. When that runs out, I use the .38 on my ankle. If none of that work, I’ll piss on him.

    I definitely don’t want to be killed for lack of shooting back.

    My only backup is my Ruger Gunsite Scout (.308) in my truck.

    Depends on location. Never less than the pocket 380, often the pocket nine + 380. In car, PDW in 357 Sig.

    I have yet to have a fixed blade knife malfunction or run out of pointyness.

    My NAA is my BUG except when it’s my primary. To say it is my constant companion is an understatement.

    Going back fifty-plus years when my brothers or I would ask my Dad if he had his pocket knife with him, he’d say “I’ve got my pants on don’t I?”

    For about forty of those years that’s how it’s been for me with my little mouser.

    That’s why Bowie Knives were so popular in the 1830s-1860s until metallic cartridges made Revolvers more reliable and easier to load. Cap and Ball Revolvers were very time consuming to reload and often misfired. A Bowie Knife never misfired and didn’t need to be reloaded.

    @JTC, LOL, I’m gonna steal that line. My wife asks me all the time if I have my pocket knife on me.

  8. JTC Says:

    Ravenwood, heh. Yeah he said that many times. I had forgotten I referenced it in this meme at the old blog almost a decade ago. Not much has changed except I’m older and the flip-phone is replaced with a damn tablet-size iPhone that probably wouldn’t have fit in that pic…even the same wallet; God I’m a predictable old fart.

    Heh, too funny. Might consider upgrading that pen knife to a Gerber or a Kershaw.

  11. JTC Says:

    Yeah it’s not a real knife, I sold thousands of those you mention over the years along with quite a few much more premium blades than that.

    That little Browning is the one referenced in the story, and it’s a lot like the NAA. There are lots of better carry knives and I still own a few dozen though I don’t sell them anymore.

    But I don’t always have one of those with me whereas Dad’s tiny knife is always there and very useful for many things, not least of which is that I’m sure I feel his hand on mine when I hold it. It’ll be in my pocket until I die.
