    I thought this was worthy of a chuckle, but also might show the utility of a dog, regardless of size or perceived ferocity:

    Can a blowtorch be construed as a "fire arm"?

    my kids have a chihuahua/pomeranian (chimeranian?), and as much as i can't stand that dog, he's the first line of defense for the home. the little bugger will bark incessantly until you tell him to shut up, and sometimes he'll bark anyway.

    Another catch and release success story, it seems.

    Continous fire until the ammunition is depleted, I would expect. ;)

    I'd always heard that the small "yap-yap" type dogs were actually the best watch dogs. Many of them, Rat Terriers for instance, aren't afraid of anything and the shrill barking is more likely to wake someone up. My wife, who is of Chinese decent, was telling me that in ancient times, the emperor actually had two types of guard dogs. A small variety to wake the larger one, and the larger one to attack.

    Must be a full auto. It'll keep going if you keep the trigger depressed (ok, valve open. thats a happy switch too, right?) until it expends all available ammo. Yup, full auto.

    As I have always said. A god is NOT a defensive weapon.........It IS a early warning system.

    Depends. An anti would count the number of combusting molecules per second. That's pretty fast.

    I don't know, I think a personal god could be a pretty good defense. :p

    What, do y'all not have the ability to shoot lightning and summon demon servants...

    My dogs are a Beagle and a Pit/Retriever mix. 25 and 41 lbs, respectively. While I doubt they could do much damage to an attacker, they make a darn fine early warning system.

    Personal gods are pretty cool - dogs too. :D
