    Carrying a knife like that, say a K-Bar, concealed is illegal here, but I can carry as many handguns I want concealed.
    Florida's license is titled Concealed Weapon And Firearm License. It covers any type of weapon.
    I can carry sword canes, anything.
    Open carry of knives requires no permit. I could wear a Bowie with a 12" blade if I wished. I limit my blade length to 5" because anything longer on my right side is awkward getting in and out of my pickup.
    I leave my left side knife free, being left handed that is where my gun is.

    The only knife type illegal in Florida is a "ballistic" knife where the blade is actually propelled from the handle into the target.
    I have an automatic knife, aka "switchblade" but it opened in my pocket once, so it stays in my box-o-knives.

    My big desire is to wear a Garand bayonet with 10" blade, but like I said, too awkward in the truck. Sarco has a bunch of original USGI of various manufacturers for $89 each. An excellent deal in this day and age.

    Nah! Stick that blade in the belly and juke it around until intestines start coming out.

    I have plenty of fixed blades but I always carry a auto of some type. It's legal to open carry a fixed blade here In Texas but I work in a professional environment where it would be out of place. When in my office or the truck traveling I am usually within reach of two pistols. One on me and one in my carry case. There is a fixed blade in all of my trucks.

    13 pages in, I hope some resolution was reached...

    The fact of the matter is, more people survive being shot by handgun calibers than die from handgun calibers.
    They all suck.

    Shot placement is everything.
    Shoot the largest caliber you can ACCURATELY place shots with.
    Aim for vitals.
    1. Assess.
    2. Fire.
    3. Repeat as necessary until the threat is stopped.
    You can't do better than that.

    Lmao well I didn't mean to start WW3! I'm going to keep my 40SW but I did decide on a another Glock or maybe a Sign in 9 mm. The cheapness of ammo alone, is a good reason to shoot 9. When my life depends on it, I'll carry some extra ass in my rounds.

    Nobody loves the M29 S + W?

    Took some range time but very accurate, and will do deer as far as my eyes see good, 240gr JHPs/JSPs.

    For practice I stalked my meadows/fields for woodchucks. Great field practice, shots from 15 yds to 80 yds, shooting all positions and got to be sneaky too

    Just like a Mag rifles, takes time getting used to.

    You do mean recessed don't you?

    Yes it does if it is an S&W and has a 29 in the model name.

    The 41 is recessed, 629 no, was bought as a carry weapon, so the 4-1/2 barrel and SS.

    The 629 and a 1911 are my go to the door at zero dark thirty guns.
