/k/ommandos I have a dilemma. Hoping you could help my bongistani arse out.
>move from white suburbs to mainly black area for uni
>go to supermarket to get milk and some straights
>brush past big black dude as he's walking out of the supermarket while I'm walking in, hear him say "U wot"
>ignore and continue to tobacco counter
>"Oi mate you just bumped into me back there. You got a problem wiv me m8?
>"Didn't realise, sorry mate"
>Do my shopping and walk out of store
>Notice same twat following me
>Pretend not to notice and walk back to hall, with him following me at a distance
I'm kind of worried about future trouble t.bh. Not the first time I've had trouble with blacks, they're always aggressive and looking for trouble.
I've already started weight training these past few months and plan on taking up boxing when term starts.
I'm 6'3" and kind of fat, but am fairly strong. Even so I would like an edge if there's trouble, though I'm under no illusion as to my own capabilities and will definitely get rekt in anything other than a 1v1.
What gear could I carry considering I live in Britain and carrying anything for self defence aside from a rape whistle is a criminal offence?
I was thinking maybe a belt with a heavy buckle or a load of cheap and heavy rings. Any other ideas /k/ommandos?
Sock full of pounds, padlock and shoestring, a screwdriver, think you Britcucks can only carry a inch or a half inch blade so something as big as you can get, think shank, go for stomach, upper chest, throat and face/eyes, fast.
Pls no bully. I hate the shit self defence rules in this country, it's part off the reason why I'm moving to America when I get my degree. No guarantees on your free speech, more kebabs about everyday, c.ucked to the core. Pls don't hate because I dream the American dream family member. It wasn't my fault I was born in this limp wristed shithole.
Ive been considering buying a heavy padlock and a chain or a long bike lock for practical and self defense reasons. I can say the padlock is for my garden gate or lokcing my bike up, and I can say the long bike lock or chain is to lock up my bike.
If I put them together, I can swing it about in case somebody is threatening me.
Is this a good idea? If not, pls provide alternatives. I figure I can get most of the stuff from homebase or any DIY shop, really.
History. Was a bluepilled faggot when I was choosing my degree, so I went with the whole "do what you like the most" bullshit.
>it's part off the reason why I'm moving to America when I get my degree
It's really not that easy to "just move". Being a britbong, you can't enter the DV lottery. So, with some very limited circumstances, you have three ways to come to the U.S.
1. Marry a U.S. Citizen
2. Qualify for an L1 Visa - good luck with that
3. Have significant financial resources and be willing to start a business in the U.S.
4. Qualify for an H1B - do you like being a slave
Even still, these categories are non-immigrant visas that expire and you will be going back to the U.K.
I hate the fucking degree, I hate my past self for being a dumb cunt. I guess my best bet is converting in 3rd year to law, everyone needs a lawyer.
Better get my game tight and pull some US bird then.
I'm sorry lad, but self defense is almost illegal here. No taser, no stun gun, no knife, no gun, no pepper spray. Only thing we have is rape whistle and a colour spray that makes it easier for police to find our rapist/murderer unless they shower.
It takes two years for conditional permanent residence, via marriage, to be converted to permanent. USCIS is pretty good at sniffing out sham marriages.
You could always come to the U.S. on a student visa for grad school. That will give you two years or so to figure out a way to convert that visas. There is a one year work visa available for those who came to the U.S. on a student visa.
>mfw when I guess I'll have to berry muh dik in twink ass for two years
Don't dwell on the past man just look into the future.
sometimes it isn't worth it making brash decisions on degrees. I've seen it workout better for lumberjacks and plumbers later in their life going back to get a degree than kids chasing degrees.
There's permanent residence and citizenship. There's no direct to citizen route. Permanent residence lasts for 5 years before you can apply to become a citizen, and it will take up to 2 more years for that to be approved. So, it' like a 7 year process to become a U.S. citizen.
Well I'm gonna work my arse off to make the law thing work. If I can get into contract law I'm a made man, though I know what you mean with the trades. My uncle is a plumber and he fucking kills it, can afford to lay deposits for his kids flats and buy german whips. Then again my best mates dad is a contract lawyer and lives in a 4 storey house, has 3 Mercs and owns a property portfolio worth 4 mil.
Unless you have a PhD, teachers do not quality for any visa program since undergraduate history degrees are common, not in demand, and are not deemed to be a critical shortage.
>can afford to lay deposits for his kids flats and buy german whips
>buy german whips
Is that a euphemism?
Worst case scenario cultivate a persona as an eccentric history buff and start walking around in mail vest.
Think blackjack made out of change is the best option, just empty the sock in your pocket and lose the sock, or empty the change all over and put sock in pocket, or toss it of not seen. Hairspray and lighter?
because it is a aerosol and not spewing flaming liquid, it won't stick. Spiting some fire in his general direction is a guaranteed way to scare the shit out of him and maybe light up his hair/first degree burn his face.
Under UK law you may not own ANY item for the purpose of self defense. However, if you just so happen to be interested in certain items and they just so happen to be good at self defense... Well, what an unexpected turn of luck for you!
You may carry any and everything provided you have a GOOD REASON, remember, this is a good reason for the copper that stops you, you can;t scream "MUH RIGHTS, MUH BURDEN OF PROOF" at the guy and expect to get away with carrying a harpoon in the middle of Leicester (also cos we're a cucked nation without any rights). So if you're hiking in the lake district and you have a fixed blade on your person, that is totally reasonable as field craft would be an acceptable excuse.
You do NOT need a reason however to carry any non-locking, folding knife, with a cutting edge (the sharpened bit, not the length of the metal) of less than 3".
Some good options are the UKPK by spyderco, and the Boker Plus XS. Beware, as they're non-locking, the chance of having the blade close on your fingers is something to be careful of. The two knives mentions have a little finger grove/choil thing to prevent that from happening but it's still a possibility, second thing to mention is the Boker is super stiff so it's a bitch to open compared to other knives, but once you get used to it it's alright plus its another line of defense from chopping your own fingers off.
OP here, made a blackjack out of all the coppers in my money box. Was thinking of getting cheap rings as well, any help as to where from whould be appreciated. Looked into knives under 3" but you need a "good reason" for one of those, and self defence is not one of them so that's out. The wrench/umbrella and fishing weight club would count as offensive weapons here, so it's a no to those. The blackjack I can justify as the thing I carry my change in, which makes sense as my wallet has nowhere for change anyway.
Heavy pen, those things hurt when used right and in the right areas, strike for bony areas like the skull, hands, joints, avoid center mass as it's usually squishy, DO NOT get a "tactical" pen, they're designed for striking people and your legal standing will be compromised, just get a big normal one
Torch. I had a 3 quid one i bought off amazon and it fit perfectly in my hand meaning harder punches, and an innocent striking edge.
Lots of keys and tools on a keyring, and get on of those plastic fobs (pic related), this will allow you to keep retention and swing it like a flail, causing both blunt force and some lacerations depending on what you have on there. Added benefit of no one could ever pull you to one sided, search you, find the keys and nick you for 'possession of an offensive weapon'. Ever. We're a ridiculous nation but there are limits.
A lot of other anons' ideas could get you in trouble, hell even carrying a UK legal knife could land you in some hot water because the police do not know the laws and those of us who EDC are in the minority. >>28496067 that would count as an OW
get a cheap steel watch with and expanding wrist band. you can quickly slide it down to cover the knuckles and backhand a motherfucker with the steel watchface. besides who would think twice about a guy wearing a watch.
I would advise maybe if it could work doing that in a little bit long knit or wool pull over hat. But the sock is fine, maybe don't carry it tied( tied would give it away) but a bit more in it.
You are sheltered and lack experience with aggressive encounters so naturally you overreact. Continue to train. The more your spar the calmer you will be in confrontations.
Get pepper spray if you really think you need it, but you sound soft. They're always aggressive towards you because you allow them to be.
Harden up and stop looking for a tool to compensate for overreaction in a minor confrontation.
Realized I just made all my good points sound pretty bad. You said you're well spoken so as long as you're within the law you'll be fine, your best bet is a sub 3" folder or the key tbqh family
(What Uni btw? KCL here)
I tried it on myself and a light hit hurt like hell, and that was on my fat stomach and not my head or something. I can unknot it and carry I suppose. Maybe I could keep the coins in a sandwich bag like I used to and wear a beanie. If some cunt wants to throw down I chuck the sandwich bag in the hat and start swinging.
You're probably right, but until I've got to that level do you reckon a tool is a good idea? Seems so to me, these people act aggressive regardless of how I act (had some confrontations when drunk and therefore giving zero fucks) Pepper spray is illegal here btw.
Yeah mate you can fuck off though. Our shoulders barely brushed, we were both wearing puffer coats so It was literally his puff part on his shoulder brushing my puff part on mine. The cunt was overreacting.
SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED, FAGGOT
besides, who said I carried a knife?
If you're explaining to an officer why you have it, then you've probably used it. Most people don't carry around change in a spare sock which could be a little awkward to explain, unless you're homeless or something. Knives would also come under the same category but they have alternative uses and are omitted specifically by law which might give you an.. edge...
Hat could work well if you don't mind the bulk or the possibility of the change spilling out into pockets/the street when drawn.
As always, only fight if you have to.
A tool is a good idea but in your hands i think its a bad idea. I don't know how the UK legal system works, but it sounds incredibly difficult to justify self defense.
I think the likely hood of you going to jail for using an object for self defense is greater than you actually having your life in danger. Its tough, but it is what it is.
Work on fixing your mind and body before going for a weapon/self defense tool. The tool is only as good as the person who wields it and you are not up to par.
Just keep training.
>plumbers need a degree
Why? When I was a kid I thought poorly of plumbers. I thought they were hired only to unclog toilets.
Then I learned they mostly do pipework and make bank for a blue collar job.
Maybe if they're old and want to drive a desk. 20's - 50's plumbing is a viable career.
After several episodes of bullshit of a much closer nature. I travelled late nights a lot due to my work, and I had some close calls with several peeps. Almost got in a fight till security chucked us both out on Thursday, due to me "looking like I wanted to start something". Mainly blacks, but cunts are cunts, I guess it's just a demographic thing.
As you are fat get a walking stick "yes officer I need it to help me walk as my knees struggle to support me, its also the closest thing I had to defend myself"
Or a steel tipped sturdy umbrella "yes officer I was told it was going to rain so I thought I would take it will me in case, it was in my hands when I was forced to defend myself"
