I would personally go for my good old, reliable bolt-action rifle, fitted with its usual scope and suppressor: sticks its bullets in a circle no bigger than a golf ball at fifty meters, and the noise can be reduced to merely the click from the mechanism, depending on what ammo I use. If you put aside the psychological trauma of feeling guilty for such a dishonorable kill, seeing your ennemies drop down one after the other without any of them being able to work out what is happening must be a rare and highly entertaining activity...

Not sure if people would consider them strictly martial arts weapons....but I love throwing axes, make great hand weapons. I bought two yesterday acutaully, cute little steel things with woven rope grip.

Can't honestly say I use them for their intended purpose, but they're damn cool for the whole "toss-multiple-apples-in-air-and-cut-them-in-half-before-they-hit-the-ground" party trick [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG].

Hi, Liquid Rock! What exactly does this party-trick consist in? I'm quite fond of party-tricks myself... I know it's mere childish showing off and should no longer appeal me, but it's such fun... [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
One of my favourite ones is throwing an apple in the air at an approximate height of two meters, watch it reach its apex in the most casual and innocent manner (as if I didn't plan to even catch it on its way back but rather let it fall on the ground), and as soon as it starts descending, unsheath a hidden dagger from under my clothes with the very hand which just threw the apple and slice it in the air before it touches the ground. The whole process lasts less than two seconds. Oh, and I usually perform an elegant bit of juggling with the dagger before sheathing it back and pulling my jumper back down over the scabbard, which gets me exactly to my very first, innocent-looking status. Great effect, enhanced by the fact that noone's aware that I'm carrying a dagger (usually my Cold Steel "oyabun" tanto) in the first place. It's not as difficult as it sounds... Would you mind giving the details of that trick of yours?

Heh, nothing so subtle as yours...

More just a demonstation of speed; toss some apples (or whatever) in the air, couple of spins and twists for flair and boom! some nicely chopped fruit.

It plays on the effect of moving quickly so the apple's fall is not affected by blade moving through it. The audiences sees a flash of steel and quiet suddenly the fruit is in two peices. I should get an actual routine though.

I like the idea of carrieing concealed weaponry and just non-chalantly pulling it out, totally punk! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Yeah, it's extremely funny but I (almost) only do it at home, since the police, strangely enough, seems not to be too happy with people carrying weapons around... Still, I don't know about your government but if mine allowed me to carry my beloved tanto, I certaily would! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
By the way, thanks a lot for answering! These axes sound like very pleasant weapons to handle. I might get myself one of them one these days...

As a base and practical weapon, a stick or olisi in cebuano. I have a nice heavy kamagong stick that I seldom train with, 'cause it's sooooo heavy, and training partners complain when I damage their sticks (or bones!). There's normally a stick-like object around.

For practical carry, a mini maglite, kubotan, badjak (or dulo dulo), or just a nice strong metal pen.

But my nicest toy would have to be my very sharp visayan kris...

Nunchaku. They are my favorite, and a lot of people underestimate their usefullness. I am not getting into "Nunchaku can beat Sais because" arguement. The people that take part in those stupid quarrels have the maturity level of an infant. *Cough* Hmm...anyway...Nunchaku for sure are my fave!

My favourite weapon in all forms but has very little menion is the scythe.
hands down the coolest weapon around.
as for a gun it would have to be a massive ass revolver.
outside the scythe i will say the hookswords.
so many possibilities!!!
