    What say you?
    1964, a pair of throwing knives. I was 12. Just for something interesting to do. I made the throwing knives out of some simple 1" wide, 1/8" thick strap steel. I just wrapped tape around the "handles". Now that there's instruction on 'no-spin" knife throwing, I should take it up again. i started carrying a pistol a few years later, when I was 17, same reason, basically. Later, after I'd had some confrontations, I started carrying it seriously and it came in handy several times. Ive taught Karate for almost 50 years now, and I'd still much prefer the gun. People back down fast when they see that super-practiced sudden appearance of the gun and my "fighting face" tells them that i"m going to empty the entire magazine into their chest in 1.5 seconds of they dont stop. They stop.
