Carrying a handgun concealed at your school if one has a CCW is NOT illegal.Originally posted by BeasTboyz:
I always carry my M16-14 and Fox OC I am 19 and in Colorado so I can't carry a handgun but feel pretty safe with my FoxOC, the knife is a tool, not a weapon but could be used as my last defense (after running). The last thing I want is a damn knife fight! I spend most of my time at school anyhow (University of Colorado) where carrying a handgun even with a permit is illegal so FoxOC will probably be my primary defense even after I get my CCW.

Fair enough question. First, this is MY reaction to a situation, and may not be appropriate for everyone. Feel free to disagree.Originally posted by Double Naught Spy:
Electric Armadillo, I am curious about your inside 20' reasoning for using a knife as being more dangerous than a gun. My curiosity is not with which is more dangerous, but the distance issue. Can you draw and deploy (is that the right word - open the blade up) your knife more quickly than a gun at a charging target? My thought always was to avoid close proximity contact if at all possible. While a knife may be more dangerous than a gun, that is only if you can inflict damage with the knife and that involves being at arm's distance (none of the knives I saw here, and certainly not my CQC7 are geared for throwing all that well). I would rather not be that close to a bad guy. At distances greater than 5', I think I would have to reason that my gun was more dangerous to the bad guy with the Ma Bell "reach out and touch someone" benefit of bullets. Plus, at 20' your adversary can see your nice, big, government .45 and won't snicker compared to seeing a little ole knife. At 20', my knife looks really small.
