Alright, as an 18 year old I know that as an adult I am well within my rights to own and carry a weapon so long as it is not a handgun.
However, I have a few questions to ask in which I want to make sure that I am 100% certain on before I do anything.
I know I can carry a folding knife or pocket knife as long as it is a legit pocket knife.
My friend has a folder knife that is one of those 15 inch long novelty jobs. It folds alright, but the thing is practically a small machete, and doesnt constitute as a pocket knife or anything of the sort.
Anyways, I recently purchased a United Cutlery boot knife, and I wanted to know if OC'ing the knife with it strapped to my belt would be a problem.
From what I understand, carrying it on my person in a vehicle is illegal and considered "concealed". Is this correct?
Also, is there a limit to blade length?
I have read the entire law about knives in Alabama, and really it is confusing (by the way I also checked out the petition and signed it).
I only intend to carry this blade out into the boonies (i.e. the local creek up here in Harvest, outside of Huntsville, that all of a sudden has seen a huge increase in some very very huge Alligator Gars, one of which chewed up a kid the other day) or when hiking or in a secluded area. I wouldnt be dumb enough to try walking past the madison courthouse knowing how people in that area of town are a bit touchy feely about these sort of things
I also own a massive Ka-Bar combat knife (however, thats really more of a collectible to me, I never take it out of the sheath lol). Hypothetically, if I can OC a boot knife, couldnt I OC that Ka-Bar? Just curious about that one.
Anyways, Im sure this is probably the most routine question on these forums, but if anyone has answers then thank your for your time guys
