I bought a pretty much unused Bear Grills Gerber-Brand hatchet at a pawn shop for 5 bucks. Wondering how much shit or unwelcome attention I would get from carrying this. It came with a belt sheath if that makes any difference.

I would not carry it inside public buildings such as; libraries, municipal, county and state buildings. When I use to live in Colorado Springs, CO I walked in the downtown library one day carrying a long knife on my belt. Security did not like that and they asked me to leave. As soon as I left, I put the knife in my backpack and came back inside and security didn't say anything.

I would first check with the local city attorney's office, county DA's office on the legality carrying a hatchet as open carry in public to be on the safe side.

Carrying a hatchet on your belt would be a benefit as a deterrent against scum bags that want to cause problems with you. Who wants to mess with a guy who is carrying a hatchet?

Are you seriously wondering if openly carrying a hatchet on yer belt is going to cause attention to you? Because the answer most places is very much yes. Knife/weapon laws vary from place to place but yea, most places walking around with a hatchet is going to raise a few eyebrows.

I got my first trespass in over five years of riding, but the bull in clovis was doing that thing were he scans the cars from a ladder and my bike had the back wheel off so i couldnt run. I caught the next train after he let me go.
The amarillo northyard hopout is trashed, can yall clean up after yourself. No wonder they put up all these new fences here.
just now saw yet another article of people talking photos of themselves and falling into a waterfall and being pummeled into drowning - why people why - i recall when i first heard something like this out at Silver Falls eas of Corvallis, I think it was 2012 or 2013, but it never ceases to amaze me that it happens so much all over the world
