Did not want to say weapons. But having just returned from my business trip, I thought I would share a couple of CQC items I always take with me when I travel, and not just by plane. Usually have a magazine and a pen. I like metal pens. Can you say espada y daga? I never bother with the cord on the rolled up magazine. It was just to keep it tight for the picture. Even at home, if I get a dodgy feeling going somewhere, you can bet a magazine is getting rolled up and will be in my hand. I even practiced it in a corporate environment. Walk around with a magazine, no one notices. Roll it up to better hold it...registers nada on most folks. If the spidey senses are tingling, it feels great to have something at hand. You can even have the metal pen in a reverse grip in your other hand out of sight. I was jumped once in an alley at night by three druggies and having something in hand made it a non-event in seconds. It was a stick that time. Like I tell my monkeys, I grew up playing with sticks and string. And they are still some of my favorite toys.
