The IWA is probably Europe's most important annual weapons show. No hobbyists are allowed, except with a personal invitation by one of the exhibitors.
Cold Steel was kind enough to invite me to the show! Meet Lynn Thompson, founder and president of Cold Steel, see him receiving his Jörg Sprave Hammerhead slingshot in cast aluminum. Lynn then gives a personal demonstration of his fighting skills with two huge Bowie knifes.
All of the Zombie killing Cold Steel products are checked out at the booth. I left their booth with a huge amount of presents in exchange for my slingshots. Generous guys for sure!
Then, I walked the showfloor, looking for other cool stuff. Large knifes, awesome crossbows and even a brand new arrow shooting air rifle from Sweden are presented in this slightly off topic video - to me, the true highlight. Built in pump, three strokes for 300 fps! They even have a model that is detachable, breech loaded and fires up to 600 fps - the fastest arrow shooter in the world?
One trillion guns as well, of course - but I am not interested in firearms at this point. I want weapons that have a chance to work in the long run, when the SHTF.
