Cue Daily mail terror knives outrage

This is one for the underwater knife fighting course. Probably old, been seen before by some, still good though.

Err if the knife is in that deep, isn't the bang bit a tad overkill?
You have never tried cutting/stabbing a shark then. Three of us using a hacksaw spent the best part of two hours trying to cut the head off a sand shark - the thing was about two inches diameter.

We were off Mersing on Tioman doing two weeks worth of open water training. Down at 40'ish feet my mate lifted a piece of small wreckage and the little bast@rd darted out and sank its teeth into his face where the mask sat on his cheek - it had a mouthful of half mask half face. Mate in a panic shoots up - at least remembering to exhale - out of the water into the boat without touching the sides. He ripped his mask off and luckily the shark went with the mask to the bottom of the boat till it died. We also used to prod basking sharks quite hard with our knives, hang onto the fin and get taken for a ride.

If you hit a shark right with a knife you would be lucky to penetrate a few inches and even then the teeth still work. Only thing worse than a shark is two sharks, or a load of barracuda - like 6 foot long piranha.

Ah. Ta for the info. Luckily you never found sharks at the bottom of the trench at Strensall. ;)

I can't wait to see the first YouTube film of some redneck mong shooting his own thumb off.
You would be surprised, or maybe not, at the crap they sell at gun shows over here to gullible rednecks. The belt buckle pistol always makes me chuckle at the thought of some dimwit trying to deploy it and shooting his knackers off.

The latest piece of fashionable tat is the groin/appendix holsters...........I am waiting for the youtube video. They carry these small frame 9mm and .380's in a small holster shoved down next to their knackers. Two designs for deployment: 1. Shove your hand down, grab the pistol and off you go; 2. A strap affair attached to the holster so that you grasp the strap and pull the holster up with one hand whilst plunging the other hand down to grab the pistol. Believe it or not I and my, former MARSOC, mate stood on the range watching a bloke deliver a $400, 2 day, defensive pistol course, to 10 people, based around the use of these. Laughable, and the knobs pay for it.

It's against the GC to stab and shoot. Stab, withdraw, then shoot is perfectly OK.

At least the round that blows your knackers off is also likely to sever your femoral artery giving you only a short time to lament their absence.

About 30 seconds till you pass out and three minutes till you expire.



As a general FYI as we are digressing into covert holsters: You hear about US plod carrying back up guns - referred to as a 'bug' in conversation - contrary to popular opinion they do not all use an ankle holster. Stupid really having to bend over to draw a back up when being shot at. A fair few of the more progressive ones attach the bug holster to the under shirt body armour in a sort of sideways on shoulder holster position. Then they have their uniform shirts tailored to have a couple of velcro tabs in place and buttons sewn on the front as decoration rather than functional to allow quick rip-away access.
