I figure in an emergency situation I would be quicker and more proficient with a blade as things would likely be happening at a close range. Plus my right side would conceal it the draw as just unbuckling my belt. A gun would probably work better, but its a compromise I think could work.

Be careful whether you chose to carry a firearm or whether you chose a knife. I've been trained in the military to handle both efficiently. Both take considerable practice and skill to master. Practice makes perfect. Just because you feel safer with a knife or a gun doesn't actually mean you're safe.
Just a word of caution: Anytime you pull out a gun or a knife the situation you WERE in is gone because the everything just escalated and it's a whole new ballgame. Meaning, once you pull anything you better be prepared to do something with it, and whatever you decide to do better work, otherwise it's likely game over.
That's why it is so vitally important to be proficient in your chosen self defense technique.
