Metal Knuckles
 
Now I know what you guys are automatically going to say.... soooo illegal.... I get that.

I bring this subject up because I wanted to share what I saw some months ago. As I was driving to work waiting for the light to go green, I saw a girl sitting at a bus stop bench and I noticed that she put a pair of pink metal knuckles in her purse. All I can think of was..... BADA**! :D Frickin' awesome.

I wouldn't blame her either since I've heard stories about hostile encounters on buses here in my town.

I would assume that she bought the knuckles from this website here...
Pink Brass Knuckles

Another point I wanted to put on the table..... from my observations over the years I've noticed more and more people disregarding these ridiculous weapons laws in favor of personal safety and they don't get in trouble at all. All I can think is either the police in my town are really not caring of those laws either or these are law abiding people (some I know personally, some I don't) and they don't go out commiting crimes and thus don't get busted for having any illegal melee weapon i.e. switchblades, balisongs, and metal knuckles when approached by police.

If I had a daughter I would love to buy a pair of pink metal knuckles if she wanted and from my personal experience just wielding a pair and just punching my friend's punching bag, this is an excellent self defense item and can do some serious damage, which would be beneficial for even a gal to use if she can make contact to an assailant's face or even ribs.

Right now I'm tempted to buy a pair of the spiked knuckles off this website to keep in the house as a collectible if anything. I just thought I'd put that out there.

Rodeo-style belt buckles would be less likely to get you hassled. Consider Coin Holder Buckles, Buffalo and Indian Head Nickel Buckles http://www.mrboots.com/product_info.php?products_id=2691&osCsid=db2be36c3 747be5cd33ba11aad83589c

The belt will make a nice cushion to protect the lil lady's knuckles too.

Shows the stupidity of lawmakers. Brass knuckles are illegal but I can carry a baseball bat around no problem. NO I'm not suggesting we outlaw bats.

Ever hear of a slungshot? No, not a typo. Back in the day, sailors would tie cordage in an elaborate knot around a lead shot, with a trailing cord end. You used it to heave a line some distance by tying a line to the trailing cord, give it a twirl, and sling it. Some folks started carrying them as weapons. Result- they are illegal in many states- but average LEO has no idea what a "slungshot" is.

What? Oh, that. That's the padlock I use to lock my computer bag to a table or desk when traveling. That's why it's clipped thru the strap on the computer bag. Well, gotta run to catch my flight. Bye now.

They're also called monkey fists I believe.
Here's a cool idea. http://image62.webshots.com/62/4/68/83/2027468830091933626jJEEDs_fs.jpg
He made it into a necklace. Nice and concealed that one is.

I'm not sure if I would want to use that thing as a weapon though. It doesn't seam that damaging TBH. I could be wrong though. It also seems like it would be pretty uncontrollable.
Still a neat weapon.

That padlock sure beats the 2" guardrail nut I have on a loop of 550 cord! Home Depot, here I come.
