Thread: Walking cane

  1. I cant see how any one could complain enough to matter. I am thinking of getting a walking stick for a trip to New Orleans but I will have to be more discrete

    Get a cross metal body pen and pencil set. Like the ones we used to get when we graduated school. Cross Classic Century Ballpoint PenPencil Set Black Ink Lustrous Chrome Barrels by Office Depot They throw like a knife if you need to, and make an EXCELLENT defensive tool without the "tactical" vibe that might tip someone off.

    Carry a coin purse, folks overseas use a lot more coins than we do, and works like a roll of quarters when you need to punch

    Carry a local paper when traveling overseas, it helps make you less visible as a tourist, and worst case it gives you something to throw to distract in any incident.

    All of the above and travel in a group.

  5. Picked-up a black, thick wall aluminum cane with a "T" handle at a local pharmacy. 35 to 40 bucks, if memory serves.

    I don't know how it would work as a defensive weapon. Crash test dummies, even on the used market are out of my reach.

  6. i am too using the same gun for a while and coming with the equal experience fellow members are getting by its efficient operation

  7. I would recommend the hardwood cane over tubular aluminum. I suspect the tubular ones will kink on you if used hard. Rattan is very tough and lighter weight, if that is an issue for you.

    I bought a shepherd's staff at my local TSC. It is the hardest & most durable cane I've ever seen. (Far better than the ones I've used for mobility aid.)

    I have my doubts that it would not break or bend if I had to use it defensively. Not sure if the pharmacy would take it back if broken on either end from fighting invisible ninjas...

    ...those unbreakable wooden canes seemed a tad expensive, but how much is your life worth? When my aluminum cane gets a bit tatty, I'll spring for rattan or hardwood next time.

    Got me one of these recently.

    Dragon Walking Stick - Cold Steel Knives

    Seems pretty tough, not too heavy. I use it when I go to dumb-a$$ commie New York City. Can't carry there, can't even carry a pocket knife.
    So I limp a little and carry this cane - into an NYPD station if I want. Brought to to a broadway show, even took it to a traffic ticket hearing!
    Kinda dumb I guess, but it's my way of saying "Stop and frisk THIS".

    Check out Michael Janich. He has a DVD of his approach to using a cane for protection - simple, easy to remember, effective. He even talks about how to use it when space is limited, such as on an airplane. I think it's called "Martial Cane Concepts" and is available at Stay Safe Media Home page
