Real world: S&W model 645 or Sig Sauer P220, H&K MP-5/SD with subsonic loads, M-1 Garand for long range work. Gerber or S&W folder for quick and dirty. ASP Baton.

Faire: Bearde Axe, parrying dagger & lobgtail fogger (great for denying your oponent HIS weapon).

But in all venues, the MIND is the best weapon.

A wise man once said "never bring a knife to a gun fight"... And I have ALWAYS been a firm believer in peace through superior fire power.


the question was FAVORITE, not most efficient...


Theres a difference???????


there is for me... There is no grace or art to killing with a gun. Any gangbanger can do that... most anyone with an hour training and a steady hand can take a 30.06 with a Redline scope and hit centermass consistantly at 60 yards. Lets see him or her do that withe a bow.

Firearms: Efficient? yes... Artful? not a chance...

I was asked my favorite weapon/style... what my favorite is and what is most efficient are different... At least for me.

Fair 'nuff...  althought I could argue iron sights at 500+ meters is an art...
As far as the more period type weapons... it would have to be the axe... never been good with a sword.

Personally, I like my 6' 6" hubby. Great weapon if you ask me as most men run scared...

Wit is also an effective weapon of choice, but if I was pressed to use something steel, it would be my damascus dagger and rapier.

If I'm just looking to bludgeon someone to death, then I would pick my warhammer. (or a stone)

I;ve been know to make a man cry with only the sharp edge of my tounge.  But if you mean a real weapon i prefer a knife in a fist fight, a gun in a kinfe fight and id all else fails, i have a tazer i got as a gag gift from an ex when i told him i would tazer all strangers who touch my belly w/out permission while pregnant(fyi- we broke up b/c he wanted me to have a kid at 17)

The best weapon depends on what you're planning to do with it. If you planned to wipe out a city in the Middle Ages, best weapon would be the bubonic plague-grab a dead soldier, clunk him on a catapult, and over the wall he goes. Modern-nothing beats a nuke. My overall favoriite weapon is still a dagger-sharp point, dull blade.

I agree with Dmitri. Anybody can use a gun. It just doesn't have that pain feeling that I want to inflict. Then, of course, if you have more than one that you want to take out at one time, a cannon loaded with grape still works well.

I think there's something to be said for using daisycutters in warfare. All the damage of a nuke, minus the pesky radiation.

I have trained in 7 forms of martial arts and by far my favorite weapons to weild are the dual scimitars. However I excel in rapier and main gauche, the weapon of choice for my two favorite personas, Viggo Romanova and the Comte Renard D'aguillon. However throwing knives are good for a laugh.

Just thought of one. You can't go wrong with Spider Jerusalem's bowel disruptor gun. Always a good choice.

You don't think they have them? Look up Infrasound for less-than-lethal weapons.   :twisted:

Personaly, I would want either my sabre or my hand and half sword for whatever was left over (if anything) after I emptied my 20gauge shotgun with the shortened slug barrel.
