wow, i feel sorry for you guys.
cant even carry a pocket knife? Damn talk about
henpecked and suppressed.
(not meant to be offensive to any) but man come on its
a pocket knife, how the heck do you survive without it?
I cant count the number of times i have had to reach into my
pocket and grab my knife to open something, or cut something.
I could see no knives meant for combat use, but a pocket knife is
a very handy and useful tool.
I cant imagine going into the woods camping without a few of them,
and my pistol which when i'm out hiking in the woods is always tucked
under my coat. (perfectly legal here).
The pistol is mainly for scaring off large critters, bears etc.
But how do you tie a tent off, or cut sticks for marshmallow roast...
man, i feel for you guys, normal useful items you are not allowed to have.
i think the country took the wrong approach to weapons, anything can be used
as a weapon, it makes more sense to go after the person rather than
the weapon its self. Sure i know here in the u.s. there are a lot of 'bad guys'
that kill and shoot others, but still its the people that do it, not the weapon.
not to mention the 'fun' factor of going out and going through a box of ammo
and feeling the power of a large cal rifle go off in your shoulder, or the fun of
watching a target disapeare when it is denigrated when you hit the target.
or the personal level of satisfaction of taking the time to get to know your rifle
and being able to hit anything you aim at with confidence...
to my brothers from another country, i feel for ya....
