    This is a problem that drives me nutz...... I don't like going to my property unarmed but when we finally make the trip to the big city if we think we are going on base we can not be armed !!!
    I have been pulled over and searched regularly on Ft Sill. Other bases not so much.
    No place is more anti gun that a military base !!! :duh: :mad: :zombie: :thumbsdown:

    None of you are Irish I guess. Here's a cane that has been used for centuries as a weapon (and as my dear old grand father used it to tune up unruly grandsons)

    A pencil can be used as a weapon. A cane in skilled hands can be a good weapon. If you do plan on using one practice is a must, just having it is not enough.

    Same here. You will lose all your weapons, become a felon, and possibly get jail time along with losing your base privleges as well. Then you can't even carry off base. Not worth it to get caught. I feel like you do and have to choose my business and base as separate trips. Going where I go carrying without carrying feels awkward.

    The funny part about Randolph Air Force Base is that I have bought quite a few firearms on base. Once you fill out the paperwork they will ask if I am going to continue shopping if not I am then escorted out of the building and my firearm is handed over to me. They won't allow me to buy ammo that day, even if its not the same caliber.

    Raisng up the cane, first you punch him in the gut with the end and when he bends over, you bring it back up and smack him in the face. All in one swift move.

    Pax River Maryland Rule is one has to report and turn over Fire arm at security for safe keeping while on base and Procedures on useing shooting range on the base . long time ago I worked in a metal shop on Pax River ,A few times a year agents would bring guns in and an employee would be assigned to cut them up with Agent's staying and watching . useing band saw all was cut in small pc's also torch used when needed . cutting them up was like punishment , I tried one time to talk the guy in letting me have a stock off a gun , Nope cut it up . they took every thing with them after cut up , and I got called in to a meeting and I was put on the POO Poo List for talking with them . crying shame what was cut up .

    Good Morning and all the talk about canes...I have to use one now and I hate the damn
    thing...Years ago I had CARVER make my Iwo Jima Marine buddy a cane and Denny just
    loved it.....My cane is the widely advertised HURRY CANE...Some good features..Get one
    and pour that sucker full of your ammo lead, it would become a lethal weapon! Chief

    Sorry to hear that you now need a cane Chief. Mine is made out of hickory and basically I've used it a couple of times to keep snakes at bay or move them out of our walking trail around the lake...Stay well Chief.

    My Grandpa Dave, the Story Teller I mention often, had a cane he'd made out of hickory and
    it was a strange looking thing...it had the look that had grown into the vertical part that looked
    like the musical harp...he'd tell stories of the tree he got it from being struck by lightening as
    it was growing which mal-formed that branch...I don't use my cane very often and the wife
    continually harps on me about that...she gets away with it...we been together too long to
    trade her in for a new model!!! She'd box my ears if she read that!!! Chief

    I have a cane that I had made about 30 years ago for my wife. She needed a 'weight bearing' cane. So, I had it made of ebony wood, water buffalo horn and brass. It weights 25 ounces and would make a nasty weapon if needed.
