    Does anyone carry a SA OTF in their pocket on a regular or semi regular basis? I'm thinking about this but don't want to put a hole in my leg or slice off any vital parts!

    A Kydex sheath is certainly a good idea for carrying any S/A OTF that doesn't have a safety. I don't know if Kydex sheathes work very well for carrying inside the pocket, though. Seems like it would be awkward to use if the objective is to carry inside the pocket, without three inches of the knife handle sticking out anyway. What knife are you thinking of carrying?

    Switchblades become legal in Texas in September.

    So w/ this set up it wont be in the pocket ( the paragon has a safety) but the whole idea for me was to be able to have fast ez one handed access and this is setup up for behind my back strong hand. Couldnt ask for more.

    Where do you live?

    I've been carrying an auto since the law was enacted in 2013 and haven't had any issues.

    It's only a few days away, I know, but it struck me as odd.

    College Station

    Whats weird is I remember the whole thing in 2012-2013 and thought it was a done deal, then talked to County and City cops and they said if the new bill passed it would be ok minus churches schools AND the A and M campus. Cops have a lot of discretion so I left it at that.

    Say no more.

    My wife is from Bryan, and we lived there a while. They seem to live by their own rules.

    Amen to that. College Station City cops are another breed. Zealous doesnt describe it.

    I carry my Paragon Para X in my front pocket most days. The blade action on it isn't very strong if I fire it against a piece of paper it won't even pierce it.

    I just picked up a Heretic Knives Hydra OTF. It's single action, but it has a swivel cover over the button to prevent accidental deployments. I'd never heard of them before today, but I'm seriously loving this knife. It kind of feels like a Halo in the hand.

    I thought because it would be cooler weather and easier to carry IWB without sweating all over the sheath :alcoholic:

    Can you explain what you mean by "fixed position..only illegal when it goes into a 6 inch blade"?
