Nothing like a little Ruby Ridge to bring it all home.

A three inch non-locking knife in public? Thats it? Wow.

A highly illegal 7 inch stilleto in case of a home break in? I think Ill take my shotgun.

Honestly, Ive been carrying a firearm for so long, that if I couldnt, it would be like going out without wearing any pants. I dont know how you guys put up with this, I couldnt and would have gotten the hell out a long time ago.

Just incase anyones interested, i did actualy ask at my local police station a while ago about having a knife in the woods. I explained that at the weekends i take my young girls trekking through the forest, and we often end up doing something "bushcrafty".



Are you allowed to carry a small camping ax?

I've owned one for several decades - forget the brand, True Temper perhaps - and it's very handy for camp chores.

Small enough to wear on your belt - about the size of a 16 oz hammer - and it will sharpen to a knife-like edge.

No problems with cutting up wood branches for a small campfire.

End opposite the blade is a flat heel which is good for pounding in tent stakes and the like.

oh yeah i wish i lived in Idaho, every inbred lunatic who can carry a pistol or rifle...mmmm that must be some safe haven


Such bravery coming from someone hiding behind their PC in cheese and tulipland!

I guess when you're being pinned down beaten you'll be glad if you're fellow citizens will just walk on by whistling to the wind

That has nothing to do with us in Idaho though. It was the feds who did that. And Randy Weaver was set up by a fed agent. In most states that would be entrapment.

Back to the thread though, i couldn't handle living in a country i couldn't hunt in. Or have the meens to defend my family.

I travel to Leeds a fair bit, and i know they are hammering the knife possession thing pretty big. Last time i was there, i saw the police unveiling their big x-ray scanner at the train station.


Oh sh....I mean bloody hell! Glad I missed that, lets just hope it's not going to be a permanent fixture.

Though I wonder if I set an xray machine off with my EDC tools, I could challenge the legality of such action with the arguement that a passive xray scanner at the only entry/exit point to the platforms constitutes a warantless-search therefore not legally enforceable?

I usually have a sketchpad and a few pencils stuffed in my satchel along with multi-tool and 3" lock-knife and other gear, and have had to justify why I have carried before...I simply explained that it was a craft-tool and was used to sharpen pencils to draw with.

We also get stopped or questioned sometimes for carrying anything that resembles a weapon, like a screwdriver or somthing.

Just stuff one of these in your satchel.
Plastic Lettuce knife. THe blade is easily modified to a custom size and can hold a good enough edge to slice and dice or scare off a would be attacker.

I got SuS'd some years ago for carrying a screwdriver, and was told that I could be arrested on the spot for 'being equipped for the purpose of crime'

...guess i just have 'one of those faces'

That's sad. So the majority of the nation sees a screwdriver and rather than think about screwing screws their thoughts jump to "OMG He's going to jam that into my throat!"

Maybe you should wear some sort of badge or symbol that defines you as not being a lunatic?

Where I am I can walk around all day everyday with a pistol at my side and nobody bats an eye. Should I do that in my old home town I'd likely cause a panic and be jumped by cops who in that same town have a pistol at their side everyday all day the only difference being their little uniforms that apparently to most of the residents of that town equate to a notion of safety or superior ability but to many in my new home town equate to "stressed underpaid college dropout with too much arbitrary power."

Funny how a few degrees of latitude or longitude completely change peoples perceptions.

One mans screwdriver is another mans WMD apparetnly.

I have notced the plods and rail staff on Darlington Station have set up a metal detector as well., Obviously they dont want sportsmen, hunters, campers, back packers, shooters, and tradesmen sharing the trains with the city suits. Its another reason why I prefer to drive.

vering slighty off topic :

but how the hell do metal detectors @ mainline stations ONLY , make rail travel any safer ?

the vast majority where detectors are installed or planned , have an unmanned branch line station within walking [ well hiking - ie < 5 miles ] distance

and once you have exited the train from an unsecured station - you have free access to the rest of the ntwork

its utter twaddle - and a total waste of time and money

my guess is that it may have something to do with crowds of footy fans, but once the detectors become a regular feature, they'll just be added as a permanent fixture

The worst thing I've seen though was the police loosing the sniffer-dogs on the concourse of Newcastle station just inside the main entrance and one poor sod smiling at the friendly police mutt who went up to where he was, and sat down.

He was then approached by the handler and two uniforms who (I guess as I was out of earshot) asked him to open up his bags right there on the spot...and the fool complied and was escorted away a few minutes later

Good grief dont you know ? ID cards prevent terrorism, digital passports prevent terrorism, CCTV prevents terrorism, gun control prevents terrorism, spot checks on public transport prevent terrorism, DNA checks on children prevent terrorism, You people do not appear to understyand the simple truth. This bunch of filthy labour party scumbags consider anyone not in the upper echelons of New Labour to be possible terrorists. the Criminals are now not mad muslims with bombs, but normal Brits who object to government policy. Britain willingly voted it to power New Labour THREE times, Britain now has exactly the government it people deserve. A left wing socialist bunch of totalitarians hell bent on turning the trading group EEC into a unified EU and finally into the EUSSR. We already have a government that is more repressive than the Old East Germany.

The Brits walked into this nightmare with their eyers wide open , so long as the state handouts keep coming the lower forms of life will keep supporting the loony left. Now just as before the Labour party has bankrupted the country, alienated just about everyone cept the ethnic minorities. Britain has EXACTLY the government it deserves.

Railway stations constitute private property and as such I would imagine that by entering the concourse you tacitly agree to abide by any regs they deem fit. Same reason there's the big hoo-hah over photography.

I did pass through Liverpool Street on the same day Tottenham were off to Wembley. A big long line entering the underground with Mr. Plod searching Tottenham supporters en route. Fortunately I was heading the opposite direction. I had my full pack, complete with Khukri, axe and other implements.



[edit: It occurred to me that although many fans of English football and North London residents would have no problem with the terminology I originally used there are many uneducated "click-happy" users who would not think twice about labeling me a racist. Also I'm not certain the T&Cs would have allowed it, so I'm erring on the side of caution. - Nirgal]
