    Why is there a box of matches in that pic? Are you supposed to light the stream—or the guy—on fire? That could be epic…

    Is that thunder? No, it’s just Fort Hood.
    Lutefisk can be used as an impact weapon, and is readily available.

    Webbing, leather, conveyor belt? What option did you choose?

    I like those and a black and brown leather one might be a nice addition for semi-formal wear at professional conferences.

    Conveyor.

    Be careful if you practice with it... lots of ways to go wrong with that thing.

    Seems like the kind of thing to wrap up pretty firmly in foam before you go swinging it around. Thanks for the warning.

    I haven't been to Norway, so I am unsure of their transit system. But in my general European experience, coins are used frequently in Europe for transit and of course most of the smaller Euro denominations are in coin form. Something like a Mean Gene Leather Hot Tamale might be a nice addition to the kit. I see they have a new, slightly narrower version which probably works better than the original wide version https://www.meangeneleather.com/shop...s2-coin-purse/. Because it stacks the coins in a roll is pretty tightly packed around them. That actually makes it more Blackjack like than sap like. In my experience, Jacks hit HARD
    even with low weight, because the force is concentrated in a small area. By contrast if you can't get enough weight into the head of a sap, it doesn't have the same effect, since the weight is spread out more.

    I like that Sloppy Seconds design...enough so, I just ordered one for myself.

    There's the deployment aspect: getting it off your pants and onto your wrist (loop over wrist, grab both parts). Then, figuring out how long you want the business end. A lot of my practice was aimed low, discouraging an attack from multiple people by striking the legs.

    @RevolverRob, if you want to FaceTime when your belt arrives, let me know. I had a lesson on use by a very capable friend who works EP.

    I agree with the suggestion of MMA or BJJ. Any improvised contact weapon that can be carried will depend on the ability to make contact, much of which will come from unarmed skills. Additionally, the unarmed skills are likely the most important option.

    Regarding walking sticks, this is a suggestion that I have occasionally made. Right now, the arthritis in one of my knees has flared up to the point where I am using a Cold Steel city stick to help walk around until my appointment with my knee doctor. Although a good stick is a very effective weapon, I certainly do not look like a hard target when I am using it to walk around. I will be much more confident in my ability to avoid trouble in the first place once I get my knee straightened out and I’m walking normally again.

    Pens and flashlights are also generally legal to carry anywhere (with the disclaimer that I know little about foreign laws). A Malkoff Bodyguard version two with a fully shrouded switch is as good a Yawara/Kubotan type weapon as you will find. The TuffWriter Retro Click pens have no characteristics which would make them identifiable as potential weapons, but are truly tough pens.

    Scale. That is a rather small cannister.
