For some time now I am looking in to these "balisongs" (also...

Heh, frankly, I'm just happy I'm at least allowed to carry my 1911 with me. One of my closest friends lives in UK - I shudder to think of having to live there, especially with internet censorship...

A firearm is just a piece of lifeless steel and plastic. It can not do harm on it's own. As such, you have to ask yourself if it is a presence of a gun that gives you uneasiness or your own mindset...

I personally carry in cond. 3 (just with hammer cocked), but I do that for other reasons. It is my opinion, that the only way to carry 1911 is condition 1 and that's that.
