Re: WAR CLUB cool melee weapons

I have had this by by desk for years. When stress starts getting to me I take it out back and beat an oil drum to death. That blunt spike has no problem punching holes in car hoods or doors. http://i1003.photobucket.com/albums/af157/Mackanson/club001_zps9ef15809.jpg Bulldog in a sweater for scale. ...

Diazepam is the shit. Literally in our case, because we stock 5 mg and 10 mg tubes for rectal application. Turns out the ass is a lot easier to get to than a vein when someone is having seizures. :clownshoes:
