Usually freeze would suffice; the sound of a 12-guage cycling followed by "don't move" usually induces sufficient panic in the individual as to stop them in their tracks. See, now I have a weapon, the potential to defend myself incase of a zombie outbreak, or burglar, and a mother with no hole in her head. Why would his mother break into his house? And no, I have never had to break into my own home. Two words: cell phone. And, if that doesn't work, I knock on the fucking door.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

And another flame war averted by Lord Sven's "feigned" idiocy

I just have to say that this is the most Canadian thing I've heard on this forum. So anti gun. I wish I could carry a .44, instead all I have is this stupid ass frag grenade

wow, i am impressed, glad to see the Heresy site Senior members are looking out for people that they A:have never meet B: will likely never meet. say what you will altruism is alive and well.

my hat (if i owned one, some were) is off to you. with more people like you the world will be a kinder place.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Wow, bringing weapons to a 40K game meeting? Imagine the "other person"'s reaction if he sees it! Now, who is the "weirdo"?

Just cut the "ninja" thing, swords suck for indoors, are illegal to bear outside, and might make a misunderstanding end in serious harm. Being too paranoid might make YOU the "other person", so just be careful. Meet at a local gaming store and everything is fine. Not so much fuzz is needed.

Nice thread, good idea.. I do admire one thing about the Warhammer gaming community - Young kids, teens and older chaps all get along perfectly well...I was in a GW store the other day and there were two of the regulars just chatting away. One was a kid of about 9 and the other a 45 year old dude. Just chilling and talking about tactics and strategies, as if they were good mates. I thought that was pretty awesome.

Good thread though, I bet there are some creeps out there! I'm not just talking about the store staff either.. ;)

In my opinion, this thread is extremely warranted, although that depends on your location. Me? i Live in South Africa, and our crime rates are exorbitantly higher than most other "civilized" states/countries/whatever.

The one Knife law i know here is that you may carry one, but the blade length may no be longer then the breadth/width( not sure ) of your palm.
This is awesome, but it gives real criminals the excuse to carry a potentially deadly weapon. Ive been mugged 3 times in my school career, and they have all failed, mostly coz i put up a fight.
Your run-of-the-mill pervert/thief/whatever else Will bolt if you even look like your putting up a struggle, or if your shouting like Kharn in a IG regiment.
My preferred defense is a small length of metal piping, about 3-4 feet long. That+swordsmanship classes= "non-lethal" deterrent.

A Bear is just a man who made a choice.

Problems? Problems? There is no problem I cannot solve with this...
