    Mostly when riding in urban environments, not so much on the trails.

You do cause you wat to protect your self in case you do. It's just a simple tool to carry like a tire pump or patch kit "just in case" Hopefully I'll never need it but if I do, I'll live to tell about it.......

    Quote from the article:
    "Wright grabbed a spare tube for a bike tire and wrapped it around the first cyclist’s wounds to try to stop the bleeding until rescue units arrived.

    “You can fix anything with a tube and a spoke,” Wright said."

    Good heads up thinking. I dislike roadies as much as the next guy, especially when they decide to form the peloton in the middle of public roads, but to stab somebody is pretty extreme.

    You mean the guy who thinks one chased him and got a 2 in scratch (in addition to hurting his head when he fell down)?

    Not true, let me expand;

    Pistols (guns with barrels less than 12" and OAL less than 24") are section 5 (basically illegal for anyone bar profession deer hunters and certain security personnel).

    Section 1 rifles and other things can be owned by applying for a fire arms certificate (FAC). You need a good, firm, provable reason to have the gun, and be a sensible law abiding subject. Self defence is not a good reason (in the eyes of the law).

    Air rifles under 12 foot pound energy don't have to have a certificate, anyone (not banned from holding a weapon) can own them.

    It is illegal to carry a rifle in public (air rifle or powder burner) without good and direct reason. This means travelling to your shooting place, club, ground etc.

    Shotguns can be owned by getting a shotgun certificate (SGC). You do not need to show good reason to own one, although the licensing section will usual press you for one at interview, so the requirements are more or less the same as for a FAC. You can, however, carry a shotgun in public without direct good reason per the letter of the law, although you may get charged with other offences if you pushed this. Again, self defence is not a good reason, and will get your guns taken off you if you expect it to be.

    So, for the UK, there are two basic points:

    1. You can't use guns for self defence.
    2. You need a good reason to be carrying them in public, plus the licence if applicable.

    All firearms offences carry a mandatory 5 year jail term.

    The only thing I carry on my bike at present is my air rifle or air pistol, to and from my air rifle club, 20 mile round trip two times a week. This is through the city centre, in a nice bag from http://www.eberlestock.com/ . I have not had any problems at all in many years doing this, and expect none. I would be in my rights to carry my other guns with this method, but they start to get too heavy plus the ranges are too far away plus I want to be focused on one thing and not tired by the time I get to the range, so I don't do that, but would be within my rights to do, obviously as long as I ensured the security of the guns themselves.

    Hope that clears things up from a UK perspective!

    My opinion of the US situation is it is quite polarized between those that like concealed carry and those that don't want it. I can see both sides of the argument, but I believe the stats show that concealed carry helps reduce crime.

    Considering there could be meth labs near my trails, the trails are not a bad idea.

    No, you Brits stab the hell out of each other to the point the government doesn't trust you with knives.

    Our Govt doesn't trust us with anything.We live in a nanny state.
    You can't even buy a kitchen knife from a supermarket without ID now
    As it's "illegal" to carry anything with a blade longer than 3" (or 75mm as we now have to say) it's also "cool" to do so which is why there's a problem.

    I'd be tempted to try a model 32 barrel in that weapon. Double Tap offers a 125 grain JHP loading in .357 SIG that is capable of 645 ft.lbs of muzzle energy. Within the context of handguns, that's got to be one of the better ways to turn a bad person into a good person.

    Not allowed to carry handguns here in New Zealand :-(

    I didn't always live in this peaceful nuclear free little bit of paradise and sometimes i really miss that funny little CZ83 i used to carry everywhere.
