Pocket Knife Stops Bullet From Striking Fresno County Deputy

Pocket knife stops bullet from striking Fresno County deputy

Capriola added, “One inch to the left, one inch to the right or up or down and it would have been a different story.” When backup arrived, deputies arrested four people for carelessly using military style guns. Capriola’s just happy he can spend time with his wife Kim this holiday. “You come home your kids don’t’ know what happened, they hug you. They’re just happy to see dad because he’s home from work.” But the father of three knows how lucky he was that bullet didn’t wound him because it was so incredibly close.

What a pocket knife could do on a plane

One major downside: although the tools deploy from the outside, their stiffness will seriously test your fingernails. Available in red, green and black. $22; gerbergear.com CRKT Guppie A pocket-sized complement to the plier-based tools out there, the Guppie by Columbia River Knife and Tools has an adjustable wrench on its unique carabiner-style body. One of this tool’s best features is its ability to accept hex bits, and it comes with four drivers that sit in a small holder, attached by magnets. The holder also has an LED flashlight, which can be a lifesaver if you need to do a little unexpected after-dark handiwork. The Guppie also houses a 2-inch steel drop point knife that’s easy to open from the blade slot. $40; crkt.com Leatherman Juice S2 A great mid-range multitool for your pocket, the Leatherman Juice S2 is a slim 3.25 inches long, but packs a robust 2.6-inch blade and larger-than-average scissors.

TSA to Allow Pocket Knives On Planes

gty tsa lines dm 130301 wblog TSA to Allow Pocket Knives On Planes

Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images Starting April 25, passengers flying on U.S. flights will be allowed to carry small pocket knives blades less than 6-centimeters, up to two golf clubs, ski poles, as well as sporting sticks used for hockey, lacrosse, and billiards. Baseball bats will remain on the no-fly list, though wiffle-ball bats and souvenir baseball bats (less than 24-inches long) will be allowed. These are popular items we see regularly, agency spokesman David Castelveter told Bloomberg News. They dont present a risk to transportation security. The move comes following a recommendation by a TSA working group that such items are not a security threat. The move will conform to international rules that currently allow the small knives and sporting goods. Frankly, I dont want TSA agents to be delayed by these, Pistole told the audience.
