I Traveled 1800 Miles...

...to go to the NRA convention in Charlotte, NC, and all I got was a $10 knife:

At Least It's a Ka-Bar

I had to bring something home from the convention, right?

That is all.

It's like bringing a knife to a gun fight...

Hey you kids got those nifty hats!

I'm kicking myself not buying a few of those knives just for gifts and back-ups. They're good knives, amazing knives for the price.

Jay G said...

Yeah, I'm wishing I'd picked up a few more, too. They'd make great gifts, back-ups, leave in your car, etc.

If I see this deal again I'm buying a bunch.

And here I thought Ka-Bars weren't allowed inside the convention center.

Jay G said...

Funny thing, that. There were signs up all over the convention center about guns and knives not being allowed. Guns were not for sale on the convention floor, but all manner of sharp & pointy items *were*.

So you couldn't carry a knife into the convention center, but you could buy a 9" blade bayonet there.

Go figure.

Lissa, you and Mike interested in hitting next year's convention in Pittsburgh? I'm thinking we could rent a MA gunblogger van... :)

Just goes to show you that, as usual, victim disarmament laws are stupid and utterly ineffective.

I'll bet at least 20 of us gun bloggers had knives on us all weekend yet miraculously no one got stabbed.

Did anybody else hear the A-Team theme song just now?

Lissa said...

Is it bad that I've never seen a single episode of the A-Team?

Weer'd Beard said...

Nope, but you should cue up the theme song on youtube just to get the effect. : ]

I didn't watch very many of them back in the day. I thought they were boring.
