Assisted opening vs automatic

An assisted opening knife differs from an automatic because the blade is held closed by spring tension, to open the knife the spring tension must be overcome by hand before the opening mechanism assists the blade opening. An automatic always has spring tension opening the knife but is latched closed with a mechanical latch, when the latch is released the blade opens.

Some states, counties and cities have legislation prohibiting assisted and automatic knives. The rules are somewhat vague for example, until 2012, an assisted opening knife was considered a "spring blade" knife in the state of Washington and fell under the same category as a switch blade, it was illegal to sale or carry an assisted opening knife in the state of Washington. In Portland, Oregon it is legal to carry an assisted opening knife, in Tigard, Oregon (a suburb of Portland) an assisted opening knife is considered a concealed weapon, unless the pocket clip is visible.

NRA/Winchester Marksmanship Program: https://mqp.nra.org/

Quoted from above website:

From a young shooter's first BB gun to sophisticated air rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, pistols and rifles, the NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program offers shooters a self-paced training platform to develop their shooting skills. It's a drill. We set the standards and you meet the challenge! Progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding recognition awards for that rating.

Take your shooting skills to the next level and challenge yourself in the NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program today!


Great outline with a lot of info. Material, cost, function and personal preference drive the many examples that are available.
