Hey folks, this advice is dispensed for entertainment purposes only. I would never advocate the premeditated or otherwise shooting of a human being. Im just speaking in hypotheticals here. Like if The Rise occured and you found out the hard way it wasnt a zombie in your living room. But shooting people in real life, in the real world and premeditatively lying about it? Thats illegal and wrong that is.

Better advice would be to ONLY use a firearm when you ARE in fear for your life or your families lives'. It's not so much that what you said is wrong, it's just a little too cowboy. Personally, I agree that anyone who enters my home illegally is a prime candidate for the darwin awards. Just bear in mind that the cop giving you this advice won't have to go to trial for his advice.
My philosophy is that I will only pull the trigger if I feel it's worth life in prison to do so. THEN I'll ask for my lawyer and shut up.

Ok, sorry, my bad. Where Im from it's perfectly legal to shoot an intruder in your home so it didn't really occur to me. Sorry to make waves.

The post you made was insinuating pre-meditated murder by coming up with lines you will tell authorities before hand to convince them of your innocence even though you might be murdering someone who did not threaten your life or your families life.. I could be wrong but that's what it sounds like. I don't know where pre-meditated murder is legal.

Sorry, the corn oil went over my head. Where I come from S&W makes bangsticks.

I'm with you on the big/black/barking. I had one too until I split up with my woman and he went with her. I miss my dog so much.

Got hit once with a ratan. Hurts like a mother. One good one across the shins and most folks are down for the count.

Yeah...I'm lazy. What the fuck is a ratan? Isn't that the stuff they make furniture out off and sell at IKEA?

Ratan?

Post by Maj.Exec » Thu Oct 07, 2004 6:05 pm

Image This is the Rattan he's talking about. Image This is the ratan they sell at IKEA, could be used as a weapon, when broken into pieces. You know what, never mind, just get a 2x4.

a 2x4 will break before a piece of ratan.

Ever wonder why you never hear about people in other countries getting boarded, but you DO here about them getting caned? Bamboo is more flexible than most trees.

I'm saying that I think that a piece of ratan, even sold by ikea would probably be more durable. Although I would rather not use either one if given a choice.

Plus it can be pretty damn sharp if it spliters.

It's good for inflicting serious pain, but it doesn't have much knockdown power, since it is relatively light. I think you are better off with a piece of lead pipe if you are going up against a zombie, or human.

Post by mechgogo » Fri Oct 08, 2004 6:55 am

Personally, I favor either a piece of closet rod about 2 1/2 feet long. It's light, hard, durable and you can swing it all day. I keep one next to the bed at night. Also, the nice people at gerber make some great axes. Long wearing, good edge, useful as both a tool and a weapon, it is hard to beat an axe. Plus the Gerber ones come with composite handles so breakage is pretty much a non-issue. Go to www.gerberblades.com and do some poking around. great stuff there. My first wife is getting me the combo axe for my birthday.

I've got a Gerber camp axe -- She works like a charm.

It's good to see that there are people who know what a ratan is -- And I mean the one used in Kali.

Any practicioners of arnis?
If you drop a zombie, does that count as a kill?
