This is something that shouldn’t surprise anyone but I still find it amazing that more people that should know don’t. We live in a dangerous age, maybe more dangerous than any of us in our generations have ever experienced. That being said, this post is going to recommend some weapons that you should be carrying all the time, any time you leave your dwelling because it just might save your life. Plus, like I said in the title of this article, they are tiny, but deadly to the individuals who might want to rob or even kill you.
Summer is coming and if you’re like me, I wear shorts and a t-shirt 90% of the time during this time of year. It definitely makes it hard to carry a weapon and unless you want to make it obvious that you’re carrying one you have to plan what you are going to carry in advance. Here’s where I’m going to help you for areas that you can’t carry concealed firearms and where you can and this is what I recommend especially if you live in a near tropical area like I do.
First recommendation, a switchblade knife. Especially one from an Italian named Frank Beltrame. Check the link, his knives are awesome. This is the one I carry
Teflon handle, teflon coated blade, slick as shit mechanism and costs less than a hundred bucks. Fits perfectly concealed closed in the bottom of my right side cargo pocket in the shorts I wear regularly below my cigs and there’s been a couple of instances where just slinging the blade out has remediated some circumstances that could have gone a lot worse. Five inches long when folded, nine and a half inches long when deployed and razor sharp from the factory. This knife is so beautiful, I play with it regularly, just because of it’s aesthetic attributes. I’ve bought and given these knives to my girlfriend, my sister, her oldest son and my girlfriend’s son, I trust them so much. Get yourself one or more, they’re small but deadly as hell. Plus as a weapon or a tool for opening boxes or cleaning small game, you always need to have a razor sharp knife, which is something a man should have on him at all times anyway.
Alright, I know you are all asking, “What’s up with the pistol at the top of the page?” I’m about to get into that. That pistol is the Intratec Cat 9 semi-auto concealed carry pistol that was manufactured from 1994 to 2001. At the time, it was the smallest, easily concealable and lightest nine millimeter semi automatic handgun ever manufactured. I traded a Thompson Center .357 maximum single shot hunting gun for one in 1995 and have never regretted the trade.
Now I’m not going to say it’s an easy pistol to shoot. Given its weight and the low profile and slimness of the gun, it’s a pain in the ass to target shoot with. With the adrenaline flowing though, you’ll never notice the recoil. If you are used to pocket guns, its accuracy is way beyond any revolver like the Judge.
But, given its geometry, less than three quarters of an inch in width, it looks like a pack of cigs in your cargo pants pocket and with a 7 + 1 bullet capacity, it’s something that I carry all the time. Plus if you look hard enough online there are some out there for less than $150 dollars. There’s something that everyone out here is going to have to realize soon enough, to be deadly we’re either going to have to go silent or go tiny. I don’t anticipate me going silent, so I’ll go tiny. Personally, I’d rather be deadly than dead or incarcerated
Luckily I’ve figured out how to either pack in a pair of cargo shorts in Florida, a hoodie in San Fran or a jacket in Seattle. I wouldn’t recommend trying to rob me. It’s not going to be pretty. And I won’t be saying a thing.
You’re welcome again.
