I never even thought about someone jumping me for my minis! Oh its on if someone ever tried to jump me for my minis!! They are my only children!!1! Im glad you all posted this up, I was lucky growing up and had a hobby store right down the street so young nieve Dillon never ran into that kind of situation but for young people who don't have a game store as accessable there are alot of great tips here! If only I could take all my knowledge of 40k and go back to when I was younger

Its kinda pathetic that we live in a world where we need to have a safety thread for wargamming

very sound advice, although if you are going to be armed, make sure you know how to use what you have, a weapon without training is even more dangerous to the owner than not having one at all.

Just because there is a thread on the topic doesn't mean we need one...

Some good points raised here, the club i used to attend had a huge range in age, from about 10 - 50, i was pretty shocked to see several of the kids being "dumped" at the club so the parents could go out for dinner and a drink. Its times like this where people get into bad situations, thankfully every was normal but you never know. Could be some weirdo keeping an eye and just turn up one night, we knew the club members were all sound but if theres a stranger turning up its almost impossible to make a judge of character. I think another key point is never leave the kids at a club or a store, anyone can walk in at any time and its not the club members resonsabilty to watch other peoples children for them. I know this probably won't really apply to anyone here but i just thought it should be mentioned.

Failing that,yes, carrying a sword or combat knife works, but you stick someone with one of those, youll come out in the wrong.

Mind, again, being a fairly large hefty kinda lad, I dont really have problems like that either.
The ultimate self defence: Awareness, and good cardio!

Even if there are 10 guys after you, they can't hurt you if they can't catch you.

Failing that, you COULD buy a flashbang or smoke bomb. Or maybe a jetpack. It depends on what's reasonable for you financially.
