    It's always in a fixed position sticking out of the handle first picture IMG_0273.JPG

    Next picture with the push of the button it becomes longer than 4 inches which is illegal here if carried for a concealed knife IMG_0274.JPG

    Got it ????

    Ohh! I did not know they did that. Very interesting, thank you for the explanation.

    So let me ask this - in another state would this be a problem? IE it's not really a switchblade, it's just a knife whose blade gets longer when you push a button. Does this get around any switchblade laws??

    Idk if this counts as resurrecting a dead thread....

    ...but i carried a halo v and halo iii in the pocket several times. In almost no situation will the button become depressed deeply enough into the handle to deploy the blade. It takes a very deliberate finger push. I’ve carried a lot of autos and never used a safety.

    Be pretty funny to try to see you try to get a deployed SA out of your pocket

    Hello All. I haven't been around here much for a while as life's thrown me a few curves and bumps for a while. Anyway, I'm back and thought I'd resurrect this old thread of mine. I have had a HALO III 11/1998 for a while now but can't bring myself to ever carry it as it is in perfect condition, look like I went back in time for it.

    Well, I recently got another HALO III and decided I am going to carry this one. I've had it in my pocket for the last couple of days and all appendages are still intact I'm glad to report. You really need to push the button quite a way until it fires so I don't see how it could fire in your pocket even if you leaned against something unless, maybe, you leaned against something shaped just right and for long enough.

    I've always had a soft spot for HALO III's. To my eye, they are very elegant, trim, with everything stripped away but the essentials and they fire with authority.

    Now that I'm back I'll try to contribute more to the forum and look forward to hanging out again.
