    So I am just wondering does anyone see s use for impact weapons for self-defense I mine they are seen just as bad as a gun the only thing I can see is maybe in c.q.b but then that would be were a knife comes in and can also be a tool I hope maybe I am not seeing a place were they could be useful I still have my grandfather's old slapjack and it is just so cool

    If you are getting hands on, learning combatives and the skill necessary to defend and maintain your weapon... will serve you much better than a Billy club or Brass Knucks... Training saves lives, Tools makes saving lives easier... just my .02

    That what I was thinking have been doing hand to hand training for a year now and my dad has been teaching me how to keep a gun clean and running as long as I can remember but even he told me that up real close a knife can be better than a gun

    One of my knees is starting to get bad. I'm thinking I might need to start using a cane.

    The fact that a cane makes a good impact weapon is just a bonus.
