    No guns involved, but there was a Samurai sword . . .

    It is unknown whether the pair are teachable. The criminals' next move, using jail internet access, was a failed attempt to join THR and post a thread in the Non-Firearm Weapons section entitled, "What Samurai sword for Bears?"

    Those idiots are lucky the bikers didn't slam them on the pool table screaming: "I SAY WE KILL'EM"
    They may also be lucky they never attacked the bikers with their junk sword:

    hahaha omg not to hijack the thread but that youtube clip is priceless, its been awhile since I've seen it, but it's incredible how they continue with the show and they attempt to zoom in on the guy who is obviosuly on the floor writing in pain!! And then they have Greasy Charlie walk in from his coffee and cigarette break and he starts to take up the schtick! And i can just imagine the poor guy guy who ate the sword to the stomach, after pounding it on the wood table like a toddler, who is propbably barrell rolling off the set reaching out for medical attention. Simply Amazing.

    Shame on me for laughing at that vid, but I sure had a hoot. What a dummy.

    George Burns said laughter helps you live a long time. You just added a year to my life. :)

    Catastrophic blade failure, as you have just seen, can easily be as dangerous as catastrophic gun failure, and walking in to combat with a Chinese made 440 (not 440C) stainless sword is like walking in to combat with a .357 Magnum revolver made out of iron, that's on top of the fact that metals like S-7, wootz/damascus and honsanmai will cut right through 440 stainless, some of you probably having witnessed it on mythbusters when they used an Angelsword Bright Knight series S-7 sword to cut a stainless replica like the one in that video in half and numerous claims by crusaders to having their swords (which were generally in the early 40s rc, same area as higher-end buck knives) cut in half by wootz/damascus steel blades without causing notable damage to the damascus blades.
    To put all that in to perspective, imagine a thug like those guys, armed with a sword like the one in that video (which is what the article describes) picking a fight with this guy and the blade he's using:

    Now THAT would make a highly entertaining story is if the subject story isn't entertaining enough!

    That guy BTW is the man who made Crocodile Dundee's knife.

    Before anybody argues that the original post is not gun related, I have to say that I think it is. The original post shows that a gun would have been useful, but a gun wasn't necessary. You're not always totally defenseless without a gun. Anyway, does Sydney have a complete gun ban?

    Yup. A lot of the wiser folks around here have written about the importance of Mindset.
