The Tomahawk you can hit someone with from a little distance if needed. And the fear facter of it will help a lot. But I will always pick guns over all other, like AR-15, SHOTGUN, and hand guns. AR-15 - Good for protiction from close to out to 300 yards and more. Shotgun - Good for close. Hand gun - Good for close. 9mm one of the most used ammo in the US. Easy to find. 22 rifle - This one would be used for hunting only, not so load and ammo very cheap. Also the #1 ammo sold in the US, so it will be a lot easyier to find if needed. In the military we were always trained that if we must turn to are knifes and even are hand guns, we are in trouble, so keep that in mind, and try to keep enemies out at a distance. You need to spot them first, so always put your self in a position were you will. [/quote] See we talk about guns, I think a .22 is undervalued. It can reach long distances, and there will be by far more .22 ammo around than anything else. Doesn't matter the caliber of bullet, it matters the placement. Just my personal opinion. [/quote]
Everyone can make suggestions. Now I know I'll get the "derp good luck getting that close to me when my ar-15 is pointed at ur head". Look if shit happened at points close encounters are inevitable at some point so make your suggestions, and why you like the weapons...I'll start out with 2.

That badboy is the ball headed war club, and Cold steel makes an awesome one for 40 bucks. What I like about it whatever it hits it completely obliterates. If you get the ball on target whatever the person was blocking with would be useless after a strike from it. There are vids on youtube of people using some on concrete blocks ect ect. If you watch those vids it looks very inefficient in that it takes 2 hands, and has a ridiculous wind up. Quite simply the people have no effing idea what they're doing it's easily used in one hand all you have to do is put a quick twirl to get the power momentum going then strike the target. Yes has a bit of delay, and takes some time to recover after a strike so you would need choose your strikes wisely. As long as you make contact though it's over.

That is a tonfa. Now what I like about it is it's flexibility you grip it with thumb up and it goes along the bottom side of your forearm. Now, because of it's design it's equally offensive and defensive how it lies along your forearm fits perfectly with your natural reaction to protect yourself with blocking with your forearm. It also allows for some interesting grips, and locks if one were so inclined but that's not really needed. Also the stub towards the top allows for quite a debilitating blow wherever it hits as, and on top of that the long end along with grip can allow for it to swing around for a baseball bat type strike which obviously very potent.
Personally I prefer blunt weapons in fight scenarios that are face to face. They may not have as high chance of instant kill, but if landing on whatever body part that part is pretty well done.
Now your turn GLPers, what you got for me?
