Taking a trip to the Dominican Republic later in the year and looking for an implement to carry for personal protection. I've been thinking that a lanyard with an H&K sling clip would make a good choice for a low key (sorry for the pun). Can use it for the hotel and rental car keys and an improvised flail if needed. Does anyone know what the local laws there are concerning self defense and the carrying of a knife. Was debating picking up a pocket knife there that I can leave behind when flying home.
