    Some of this stuff is quite ingeniuous. Please note that I am not advocating anyone break the law and the link is provided for educational purposes only.

    I would also make mention of Wildalaska's recent observation that the TSA will disarm you at the metal detector and the airline will rearm you with a metal fork on any flight featuring a meal.:D

    Pretty old stuff for most cops but I guess they're teaching TSA guys what to look for.

    BTW, why a key knife that's so conspicuous? It's easier just to get a regular key and sharpen it. :)

    Wrong Approach

    They are looking for weapons. WRONG !!
    Watch the passengers insted.
    Why ?
    Almost ANYTHING can be used as a weapon (except maybe a handfull of shaving cream !!)
    That being said - does anyone REALLY BELIEVE that you could hold off another person for any length of time with a sharpened credit card or a hat pin !! ??

    I dunno ... you ever get shaving cream in the eyes? Could almost be used in place of pepper spray in an emergency :neener:

    Closing this as a duplicate. I'm closing it rather than merging it so that folks in General will be able to see the pointer to the thread in Strategies & Tactics.
