Wife picked this up to carry when tracking with her dogs (deer tracking)..for exposure training, maybe snakes in the summer, and mostly as an all-season-legal dispatch weapon. Seemed to fit the bill...eating anything you feed it and not “too nice” to carry in snake and gator infested swamps. Must admit, I’ve fallen in love with the little guy. Son has been carrying on the trap line for a couple weeks over break. It’s quickly becoming an everyday essential...like a wallet, keys and pocket knife. Need to grab another, or maybe two. Maybe one for each vehicle. We’ll see.
