he possibly had a cc license. i suppose the storyteller could've stated that in the story.
the story itself however is probably fake, regardless.
If you are never going to use then why the fuck do you carry a concealed weapon?
I have a cane sword I keep in my car and use when I need it, I don't plan on using it, but I like having it.
Take firearms, you don't get a carry permit because you want to shoot people, you do it so you have it if it is needed.
I never got his reasoning on that but in all honesty he's the kind of guy to buy something just because its cool. He had plate armor too and he wore it sometimes.

I actually couldn't stand the pvp in DS2. People often point to the variety of weapons but half of them were essentially just reskins with the same move-set or shit like that. The parry mechanics were retarded and left you vulnerable for literally forever as were the hitboxes for backstabbing. The hitboxes for some of the larger weapons were absolute shite with the washing pole being the length of a fucking oil drill and some hammers having the AoE of Wrath of the Gods. This isn't even mentioning the fact that they took the fast reaction based combat of DS1 and slowed it down to an almost crawl. In addition the soul memory system was such a cheap cop out and the fact that you had to buy or farm invasion items made it not worth it in the least. The only things DS2 had going for it in terms of PVP were: an actual arena, power stancing, and bows being useful.
but it had the most retarded pvp matchmaking system.

The Tau Empire. (Art...
To be fair, with the
high amounts of worlds the Imperium holds, there's bound to be some at least which aren't complete hellholes like Catachan and Cadia or massive forge worlds or hive worlds.
To me, I'd like to live as a simple worker on an agri-world or one of the worlds of Ultramar.
the vast majority of imperial citizens don't even know that there's Orks, Tyranids, or Chaos wanting to bash, nom, and skull fuck them respectively. Unless you live on a deathworld or a planet that recruits guardsmen, you're gonna have a much better life than most of us humans in the third millennium.
I also heard that, while they appear very strict on religion, the Imperium is actually very lax when it comes to differing religions.
Their only real stipulation is your religion is okay as long as the God-Emperor of Mankind is the deity/top deity out of a pantheon. That and no obvious Chaos influence is in it.
Like, for example, Christianity would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was God, the ancient Greek religion would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was Zeus, or Buddhism would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was the Buddha. However, if your religion worship a pantheon of 4 gods that each represented life, honor, happiness, and knowledge, you might get the Ordo Hereticus knocking on your door and subsequently ramming it down with several Adepta Sororitas storming in afterwards.
it's how the Cult Mechanicus gets away with it.
I'm pretty sure ultramar got heavily raped recently...did the imperium win? I forget.
4 out of 6 planets were held-on-to by the Imperium, so they're doing pretty good.
Granted, the 2 planets that were captured by Chaos were the Astropathic Relay planet, Vanitor and an Aeronautic Academy planet of Drenthal, while losses are to be expected, they are not to be accepted...
The Imperium held out on the Hive World Astramis, the Forge World Konor, the Agri-World of Nethamus, and finally the Death World of Loebos.
So, an Imperial Victory in the end, with casualties.
I'd imagine the next thing to expect would be to drag Chaos out of their entrenched positions and push back the Warp; once the Codexes are out completely; but don't quote me on it; I missed Fate of Konor, so I'm kinda openly hoping...

I've been there, but it still doesn't make sense. The test is a measure of how you understand the material compared to certain standard, not compared to your peers. It may be possible (for certain small classes) that students score low, and all of them actually do not understand the subject enough. That means some of these students will pass, just because they were lucky.
I studied in a small branch campus, with A LOT of funding. Classes were very small (sometimes < 15 students) so we had good interaction with, and attention from, the lecturer. We had a very high averages scores. So much that I had about 2 classes curved
. That's right. People got bumped down because "The average is too high and we can't have most of the class having A's"
Tl;dr: Exams have to be test your knowledge according to a certain standard, not "as hard as you can make it" and just compare students scores, who might in some cases be all very brilliant, or all incompetent.
And then some of the times, thee tests are insanely hard to purposely fail a bunch of students because the major was overbooked.
Just because you need a 50% to pass (here at least), it doesn't mean the lecturer can't make a test as hard as they want.
