    Other than modern firearms...

    What weapons do you own?

    I have a bow. I like archery and I am considering getting a crossbow. Little steep price.

    My diplomatic skills ;)

    Seriously though, longsword. Early 16th century Spanish pattern. Cavalry one, designed to chop grunts. One metre long. Weight distribution according to destination (the blade is much heavier than the handle). Devastating in foot combat, but needs a strong user, preferably trained wrist.

    Wrench. 10'' steel wrench. It fits nicely in my bag.

    Some staff or two. Excellent wrist training. Good for fidgeting. Good also for trying out things you wouldn't like to beta-test with a sword ;)

    I'm also quite proficient with chairs, bottles and table legs.

    Eh, forgot about one thing: voice, glance etc. Intimidating, or making unable to act, or simply defocusing, with eye-to-eye glance also turning attention away from slight movements like taking a weapon etc etc... quite often, and succesfully. Other than that, I stick to hands and legs. At least it's more or less legally safe since I haven't had any official training and I'm not using any weapon. Parapets, handles etc can still be used as levers, one enemy can be used as a tool against another one... Not so really bad as it would seem.

    I favor my fists and feet in a fight over weapons, seeing as how I'm far more proficient with them then with, say, an iron bar.

    I've got a pair of wooden swords somewhere in my closet, though.

    I like knives.

    I own a sabre... But of course it's a twirling sabre for color guard (but it's really nice! Black handle, perfect balance -- a captain's sabre, shorter but better for throwing) just as my rifle is merely a solid block of wood that has been finely whittled to look like a rifle and designed for throwing. I think it counts though!

    Seriously though I want a bow and an axe but my father went into this big long thing about "not celebrating tools of violence" so I guess I won't be getting one till I have my own apartment... aka college.

    A can of mace and a pair of running shoes.

    A 10" chef's knife and a 12" cast iron skillet. The problem with the pan is swinging it fast enough - that sucker is HEAVY.

    I used to fence and recently gave away the last of my old equipment. All I have left is a non-functioning electric foil that's generally best used for getting things out from under the fridge. I do have one 18th century rapier that's sharp, hanging on the wall as decoration.

    I have a few, but the coolest worth mentioning are:

    Kwan Dao (pronounced kwon-dow). A heavy, curved blade on the end of a 3 foot shaft. Kind of like a short spear, but meant for slashing. Pretty. Brutal. Pretty brutal.

    Long Sword. Hand-crafted steel longsword from Spain, though purchased in Mexico (so who knows where it really came from). Not the best craftsmanship, but hey - it could still kill ya.

    Short sword. Gladius-style roman short sword, with a very ornate scabbard.

    A brick. From my garage.

    The rest are just staves, nunchaku, a few of which I've made myself. I'll be pciking up another weapon at the Texas Renaissance festival next weekend. Hey - it's tradition. ;)

    @ Rally

    Your post conjured up the image of you dual-wielding that frying pan and kitchen knife. Evildoers beware. Heeee-ya! :D :p

    I have a spoon. Not a special oversize, razor sharp spoon. Just a standard tea-spoon. Just don't allow me to get near you eyes.

    Ohhh and I have a lot of pens, considering my strength, I think I could cause some nice damage to a person with them, Or wright a nice essay.

    My brain, you should be glad I never used it. (This counts for all humans, probably)

    My sister, although she doesn't mean too, you can always count on some destructive patterns.

    Well, aside form the usual assortment of kitchen utensils strategically placed for home defense, I have a metal shopping trolley handle and half a pool cue.

    Oh, and my breath.

    Cheers to all! :p I laughed my head off, but I was trying to be serious. I didn't really mean everyday objects or concepts.

    Still giggling...

    I have a bag of assorted goodies from my *ahem* loving uncles. They insisted that I learn to use all of those little pointy things as well so now I'm quite proficient in using anything in that goddamn bag. So far I've identified a wakizashi(very poor quality but a wakizashi nonetheless), an odd assortment of stilletto knives, throwing knives, butterfly knives, the brass knuckles (actually made out of steel and with barbed bits poking out all over the place) and the good old survival knife. The rest of the stuff in there I cannot name as of yet and trust me, there's quite a lot of stuff in there... Like this little stick thingie with a blade that pops out the side when you press a button. Kinda like a sickle or something.

    Other than that christmas present I have a Hanwei Orchid set. That's a katana, wakizashi and tanto. In total, it cost me 3000 bucks. My wallet is still feeling that...
