    The Tuff is easily opened and closed with one hand, brand new from the box, without any wear in whatsoever, if you use proper technique. As it wears in a bit, it is a bit easier to open and close. ...

    Good evening

    Like Chuck Norris, I do not sleep (or leave the Spyderco Forum), I merely wait:D.

    I have several .22s. I absolutely stink at photography and will be out of town for the next few days and away from the gun safe in any case. That is the "long way" of saying "no photos for you.":D...

    I have had a Warrior for quite awhile. Mine, of course, pre-dated the black coated version, as it was used in a magazine article I wrote several months ago. I actually carry mine as my "wet...

    It is a possibility

    A trainer can be used as an impact weapon and control device if you don't have a live blade. Of course, there are other self-defense options as well. In any case, here is something that might give...
  18. Not my favorite grip

    I far prefer a more standard "forward" grip, though I train in the use of multiple grips. The majority of knife systems feature some version of a forward grip within their methodologies. I believe...

    Quick answer

    Opinions

    Yes, I'm sure that other LEOS do have opinions. I really don't follow a lot of your logic on this one, though.
