I’ve been working as a security guard and bouncer at various sites for a few years now, and I’ve noticed that at most places there’s at least one of my peers who has a hook-up for things like flashlights and knives.
Guards go gaga for accessories.
Especially for knives. I haven’t thought I really needed a knife since I was ten, and while I find myself in way more potentially dangerous situations these days, when I think about whether I want a knife the first use that comes to mind is declaring “That’s not a knife: this is a knife.”
I can see even less potential need for a gun, but I do recall a pretty interesting article in Harper’s on that subject.
