thats the old irish way of things, shillelagh's were carried by just about every man and if they had to fight someone thats what they would use. Apparently people became really good at it too and it was their equivalent of a pistol dual.Big fan of a stout walking stick here,and as I can prove that one knee was fractured(still a little gamey),can take it to places that most any other weapon would not pass.
Been thinking about that myself, I got a dodgy hip, broken in a car crash, 20 years ago. Going to make my self an over engineered oak cane or walking stick, Would come in handy if I need to crack some yegg upside the head. Does any one know about the legality of hatchets, axes, and machetes. Looking at buying a small saw back machete, woodman's tool, or the marble camp cleaver. Concerned about what sort of trouble I would get in, if shaken down buy the police, along the roads or rails. Most of my past adventures have been in the woods or on the water, where one could pack a Kalashnikov, and not upset any one.Big fan of a stout walking stick here,and as I can prove that one knee was fractured(still a little gamey),can take it to places that most any other weapon would not pass.
Yeah, really.If you can legally buy it, you should be able to legally possess it.
I have a license to carry a concealed weapon but it cost me a few hundred for the required class, over a hundred for the actual license, plus I had to buy 100 rounds and range time to prove that I know how to fire a pistol. It's crazy how many hoops there are to jump through just to be able to protect yourself. They make it so difficult for poor people to legally have weapons when we usually need them more than anybody. These laws are so ridiculous--the right to bear arms only in the safety of your own home, whether or not you have one.
