    PDF of "contact weapon" injuries

    Chris Fry at M.D.T.S. put together this PDF consisting of photos of various "contact weapon" (knife, axe, etc.) injuries. Should provide a pretty good reality check to those who underestimate the damage that can be done with such a weapon.

    WARNING! these photos are extremely graphic, don't gripe at me if they upset your stomach or offend your delicate sensibilities.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Thanks. I think I'll skip breakfast now. This is why I carry a gun. Edged weapons can be very messy.

    Ouch. Though I must say the pic of the man with his wrists and throat slashed looked very fake, to me...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    About 10 years ago I was working for an oilfield service company doing business worldwide. We happened to be in Columbia and were traveling through the jungle and actually watched a man being hacked to death by two guys, according to our driver, that were from the Drug Cartel, using machete's. I have never looked at machete's the same way since. Like so many of you....another reason that I carry concealed.

    Gruesome, but educational. Great reminder of the power of a simple blade.

    Indeed. Before guns, a big blade was a soldiers weapon of choice on the battlefield. With good reason.

    Canned food lids make impressive improvised weapons. I am going to be more careful when I take the dogs for late night walks when recycling is set out.

    Couldn't make it all the way through the photos. I swear, I think I'd rather be shot than stabbed/slashed.

    If you study the history of weapons you will see that as the handguns got better the blades got smaller.

    I carry a blade or two, one fixed, as well as a pair of handguns. Each weapon serves a purpose, and it's not for prying, hammering or screwing stuff.

    Back in the days when I trained a lot with edged weapons I saw some research that indicated that when facing an opponent with even basic street effective knife skills you are less likely to survive it than facing a person of the same skill level with a pistol. Wish I still had the contact for the info it was an eye opener. Knives are very, very effective in trained hands. Downright scary in the hands of a lunatic or someone on drugs.
