Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    A baseball bat is my second choice in a self-defense scenario.

    Mine is a three foot pickax handle affectionately known as "Stump," residing in a corner of my den.

    I have an aluminum t-ball bat that my daughter used about 25 years ago - it's a perfect one-handed size and weight.

    AWESOME! (Note to self, put zip-ties in bunker pants, and carry Halligan on med-calls)

    A folding spanner works well too. Don't ask how I know.

    I calmed down a small crowd one night with my shepards hook. It has the pry end of a halligan and the other end is a wicked metal hook. I remember hearing one say, "Nah man, it ain't worth that" followed by sneakers on the street.

    Ever since I saw that quarantine movie I've kept Lucille with me every step of the way. No way in hell I'm going to let my only weapon be a sledge! Lucille is a wooden handled pick axe I saved. She has since been sanded down to bare metal and mostly polished. I will eventually make her look damn near chrome when I'm done. We have been through hell and back that's for sure. Maybe I will take a pic of her tomorrow if anyone wants to see.

    I somewhat agree with you bisley, except that I understand a 2 iron works pretty good also.

    kinda funny the firefighter's struggling with the dude when they show up. Why didn't they just let the guy crack him with the bat again?:tooth::deadhorse:

    My understanding is she used a 9 iron. She should have used a driver... or perhaps a driving iron. Something with a bit more heft.

    I know this is lobbing up an easy one, sure, lets see her!
