So how many self defense tools do you carry on you, and how many would you say is too many? I personally might carry too many things. On top of a fire arm, I carry Sabre 3-in-1, a flashlight that doubles as a "taser", a couple of knives, a tactical pen, and sometimes I have hardknuckle /steelshot gloves on. Also this does not take up that much space. as I carry a whole lot more on my person.
