Must live in a state with nice knife laws or be a scofflaw himself… Reply Nearly the entire United States allows OTF knives. Less than a dozen ban them. Reply That’s simply not true. 15 states ban the ownership of an automatic knife outright. 16 states ban OC of an automatic knife and 27 states ban concealing one. Without the aftermarket pocket clip the Mini Infidel is concealed. With a pocket clip, in many states it’s still considered concealed because the vast majority of the knife is in your pocket. Reply Don’t wanna know what pocket the water bottle goes in Reply Do not advise to carry a normal weight trigger with a holster system (here, a clip) that does not protect the trigger. Reply Yeah, that seems like a bad decision to me. Unless there’s a manual safety on the other side (I think that’s an option on the Shield…I know it is on the M&P), but even then I wouldn’t do it myself. A Springfield, with its grip safety, is probably the best defensive handgun to use that kind of clip with. But I still wouldn’t do it, cause I’m paranoid. And there are plenty of minimal holstering options that actually cover the trigger. Reply Had an infidel once upon a time. POS. The side to side play of the blade is on par with a tijuana special. Sold it on armslist to a true operator. Reply Dang. In the small pic on my phone I thought his water bottle was a gernade. Now that would have been an EDC worth talking about. Reply I hope the water bottle is full of Maker’s Mark! Slick watch – GPS. I like the S&W. Trying to decide on this one or the .380 Bodyguard. Need something small for summertime. Reply I’ve noticed a surprising number of Field Notes notepads in the Pocket Dump of the Day recently. These are made and sold by a well-known designer named Aaron Draplin. What you all need to know is that Draplin is extremely anti-Second Amendment. I’m a designer in NC and attended one of his presentations last year. When he wasn’t talking design was praising Obama and making cheap shots at the NRA and gun owners. I just think you guys need to know who you’re supporting. His notepads are nothing special and the the ones I’ve seen aren’t even well made. Please take your business elsewhere. He thinks all of you are slack-jawed rednecks.
