When I tool-up for the day’s activities, I carry a gun and one of my many folding knives (as recommended by thetruthaboutknives.com). I’m under no illusions about my knife-fighting skills.

a Surefire P2ZX Fury Combat Light. It’s great for blinding assailants and seeing in dark places (e.g., the black hole between the car seat and the center console). It’s not a bad striking weapon either.
