    No ****, but you made the ridiculous argument that my chances are only slightly more with something like a semi automatic rifle vs a goddamn crossbow. Yeah, that AR-15 is just slightly better than my crossbow. That is just laughably stupid.

    LOL. Agreed a crossbow doesn't make a very good home defense weapon. A short sword would be better than a crossbow, but my first choice would be a 12 ga. pump.

    I think you understimate the efficacy of a ninja sword. ****, I bet I could take your crossbow with a pocket knife. DON'T underestimate the efficacy a pocket knife.

    A Katana would be better than a crossbow too, but would take a bit more skill to wield in a closed space such as a home.

    Oh yeah, lets ignore that these men are ready to go and you are standing there with a crossbow of all weapons. You will be shot in the head 10 times out 10 before you get a shot off.

    Lets try a little game. I will load my AR-15 and you load your crossbow. Lets see who gets shot the most times. Want to play? No, because you and I know you would get shot every time we play the game.

    LOL. The African one, of course, but then it's not migratory.

    Here's a cheap but good short sword machete by Cold Steel. I use it to increase the fun factor of pruning bushes but also keep it by the side of chair. Due to occasional young visitors, I don't want to leave my 9mm laying around.

    Ok, question for everyone, home defense (not offensive):


    Pike or crossbow? I'm goin' with long pointy stick. ****, I might take the fish over the crossbow.

    This might be the dumbest anti gun rights argument I ever encounter. Tuck, you take Devil's Advocate to a new level.



    Fear the crossbow!

    One could use a noncompetitive eclectic self-defense system. 33 ways to disarm your ****fish.
