  • Beltsword

    This obviously doesn't fit under the category of duty gear, but I wasn't sure where else to post it. I just recently came across this product and whether you want to file it away under mall ninja gear or whatever, this is an interesting new product that I hope LEOs are aware of. With this system a person can totally conceal a blade up to 32" long with an extremely rapid deployment. Pictures and video at the website.

      Guarenteed concealed weapon charge right there.
      I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

        Damn. It's always something. Maybe if a bad guy draws his, he'll have to hold his pants up, and that will slow him down.
        Thanks for the heads-up.

        Agreed, on both points.

          Depends on your state, and whether or not you have a CCW. In some states a CCW is good for "weapons", in others it specifies "firearms".

          I have a pretty good hunch that if a private citizen used one of these even in a legitimate self-defense scenario, the defense attorney would have headaches with the hype getting tossed at the jury over the use of a 32" sword.

          I'm kinda surprised no one has cracked any Croc Dundee jokes yet.

            You know, I'm a gunfighter. I like firearms, and I'm very skilled with them. However, I know some folks who are very skilled with swords. In fact, I have one friend who is an accomplished swordsman, and while he would probably never carry a firearm, he would JUMP at the ability to get a CCW to carry a sword.

            To those like him, I say 'good.' He should be able to carry the weapon of his choice, in which he has dedicated untold hours training, in the defense of himself or others.

            Personally, I think swords are sexy as hell. I'm just completely lacking in any real skill in wielding one, so I'll stick with a handgun/rifle.

              I agree. Law-abiding gun owners don't do holdups on their way to or from the range, and martial arts practitioners don't commit assaults with nunchaku on their way to and from the dojo. But some states seem to prefer to try prohibiting ownership of something rather than promptly and severely punishing the unlawful use of it. (Including but not limited to various less-lethal devices, in places like NY, MA, etc.)

              If facing a threat that required him to draw his sword, I would hope he could gain the upper hand quickly. Literally disarming a gun-wielding assailant would be effective. It's hard to pull the trigger when your gun and arm/hand are laying on the ground. Slicing a 'Z' into his shirt could also be an attention-getter. Speed will be the deciding factor, lest it turn into an Indiana Jones vs. Scimitar Guy situation.
