I've never seen a Derringer, but plenty of people carry firearms and more carry blades. And for those of you who say, "Well it's pretty stupid to bring a knife to a gunfight," remember the Tueller Drill.

The Tueller Drill is used in law enforcement training. A law enforcement officer an a perpetrator each start twenty feet away from each other, weapons holstered. The law enforcement officer has a sidearm (handgun), the perp has a knife.

In over 99% of the tests done, nationwide, the perp wins, hands down.

So bringing a knife to a gunfight can be a pretty good idea. As Robert Heinlein noted in "Glory Road" - If you charge a man with a gun, he might miss or the gun might jam. If you charge a man with a blade, you will get spitted."

'Nuff Said.

They say never judge a book by it’s cover. Your a bit scary Lee! Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
