    Personal Safety

    Discussion started by Ape Shit - Mar 22, 2005

    I was inspired to start this thread after riding my bike tonight and having a group of kids try to jump me for it. I didn't have my blade or mace on me so I basically had to swing off the one kid who was grabbing me and then I was able to take off. This was at 6 in the evening on a busy street too.

    I'm wondering what kinds of things you guys carry around with you for your saftey, ie. mace, knives, batons (which i'm looking into buying)...

    same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago..they didnt try anything but i was riding a brand new bike to the layup i just payed 40 bucks for,and it didnt help that the bike was freshly painted red and these two kids happened to be bloods..they just said,hey could you hop off that bike for me real quick,lemme test it out,and i just looked at both of them with a evil eye and said "naw dog" and they just said,fine then we dont want yo busted ass bike anyways bitch ass nigga,i rode away and laughed..ignorance is a bitch,i felt like a idiot just being in the whole thing,im glad im a logical person..i dont carry my pistol on me because of situations like that,i would end up shooting someone that says something wrong,you dont need weapons,just keep a positive attitude and try not to say the wrong answer when they ask you something...

    i usually have a knife on me, but it's more for utility than protection.

    yo, i meant a retractable baton, like these:
    [​IMG]
    They're around 20 bucks.
    It's more convenient than a baseball bat, and i'd carry it with me when i'm on my bike. I got a pretty expensive bmx bike and i'm not gonna give it up easily.

    I dont know about any of you guys local laws but where i live those telescopic batons are a felony, compared to carrying a loaded 9millimeter which is only a misdemeanor.

    bear mace is clutch . My shits got range. I dont even need to get too close. I actually had to use it once. One of the guys i sprayed ran straight into a cement bridge support column

    I saw some guy walking around near campus with a samuri sword across his back a while back.
