Just dont live in Virginia! (Check your local listings!) If any person carries about his person, hidden from common observation, (i) any pistol, revolver, or other weapon designed or intended to propel a missile of any kind by action of an explosion of any combustible material; (ii) any dirk, bowie knife, switchblade knife, ballistic knife, machete, razor, slingshot, spring stick, metal knucks, or blackjack; (iii) any flailing instrument consisting of two or more rigid parts connected in such a manner as to allow them to swing freely, which may be known as a nun chahka, nun chuck, nunchaku, shuriken, or fighting chain; (iv) any disc, of whatever configuration, having at least two points or pointed blades which is designed to be thrown or propelled and which may be known as a throwing star or oriental dart; or (v) any weapon of like kind as those enumerated in this subsection, he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. A second violation of this section or a conviction under this section subsequent to any conviction under any substantially similar ordinance of any county, city, or town shall be punishable as a Class 6 felony, and a third or subsequent such violation shall be punishable as a Class 5 felony. For the purpose of this section, a weapon shall be deemed to be hidden from common observation when it is observable but is of such deceptive appearance as to disguise the weapon's true nature.
This ballistic knife doesn't use any type of expanding gas. It's a SPRING launcher.
Ballistic knives are illegal everywhere, which I think is stupid. Yes, it can shoot a blade at 60 mph and hit targets 20 feet away, but you've only got one shot. If you miss, or the target dodges, and you don't have a backup, you're weaponless. I bet that if ballistic knives were legal, more people would still be robbed by thugs with carpet knives.
They aren't illegal everywhere. You can own them and shoot them for fun on your own land in many states. Common misconception.
This is really cool! I use this to blast at my friends !

Also, see if your camera has a "macro" setting. Itll make the pictures clearer.

thanxxss....its a relle $$$ camera i was wondering why the pics came out soo badd
You've probably figured this out already, but ditto on what tye said about the Macro. Though I want to point out, you have to have an incredibly steady hand to use the Macro effectively. If you're shaky, (like me), a tripod does wonders. And if (like me) you don't have one and can't afford one, tons of things work just as well.....a stack of books, whatever. You're creative, I know you can figure it out. :)
This is hot anyways I made 3
where did you get the mega spring? and what is the diamater (distance across the top) of the chap stick?

It's ballistic, but it's not really a knife. Actually, it's not at all a knife.

Reminds me of fifth grade, when I used to make tons of ballistic...things...when I should have been paying attention.
