    Tatonka was my 40oz framer that I made in metal shop in high school. Hammers are increadably effective weapons. One of my friends hucked his eastwing off the 2nd floor roof of a house and pinned a rabit to the ground with the claw end. (Never heard a rabit scream before that)

    If not a blunt weapon, throw it at them HARD, to give time for getting to gun or pipe/staff/club.
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    Thinking the same thing. I would be inclined to chuck the hammer at him while backing up before I would just drop it. Make him react while adding distance between you and him. In the time it takes him to duck or recover from the hammer strike you can have your gun unholstered and ready to go.

    This assumes there is some distance is between you initally.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!

    when all u got is a hammer everythings a nail

    Sorry but had to quote the famed "when all you have is a hammer everything looks like nails" cant remember who to attribute the qoute to but I think its often fitting. Fight whith what you have in hand. Granpa the meat cutter had a 12 inch boning knife under the seat of his car untill the day he died. A man who swings a hammer all day may be very good with a hammer besides it makes for a better story and a better impression on the locals if your the "crazy mofo gonna kill me witch a hammer" save the gun for another surprise

    if you're close enough, hit them with whatever you have in your hand. If they're beyond contact range, chuck it at them as you're moving off the X and drawing your firearm.
