Default Knife For Self Defense

Pro's And Cons.

"Top" 1st Sgt

Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who donít like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.

While I do carry a Cold Steel Recon I pocket knife on my person...and have a KA-BAR in my Jeep...

I keep them there for basic utility more than self defense...although we were given IDF Krav Maga Knife Defense Combat Training by an agent when I was with the DoD.

According to the instructor..."an attacker with a knife in his hand can cover 21 feet in 1.5 seconds. Therefore anything under 21 feet is considered to be in the zone of "imminent danger of death or great bodily harm."
