Re: melee weapons of choice

I've always wanted to weaponize a T-post. Sharpen the blade and the end near the blade and you ought to really have something. Even just if pulled out of the ground you'd have something deadly as hell. And they are literally everywhere in America Go hit a little tree with one, or just grab as wide ...

Don't forget the zombie rounds.
No, not the hornady marketing fad -
Real deal, 5mm rimfire? Dead and gone, aguila comes along and boom - zombies.
30 carbine, wasnt dead - but was close enought to start smelling.

Re: if its not an auto that fits in your pants pocket

I have to disagree, while there is a time and place for pocket autos - they are not the end all be all of EDC. I alternate between a full size 1911 (might fit in my pocket, duluth firehose pants) an a Springfield XD Tactical (5 inch double stack 45). The xd gets the most holster time but neither are...

Re: So ur picked for a secret service detail. What are u tak

HK51a3, because the difference between cover and concealment is important.

For less lethal, I'll take a tippman TIPX pepperball pistol - stings a bit, without as much potential collateral damage.
