    IA: resident brings 2 knives to gunfight, prevails.

    Women in the house, allowed two home invaders (who claimed to be looking for an unknown person) in anyway, the invaders produced guns and demanded money...

    A male in the house heard the commotion, retrieved 2 knives and attacked one of the gunmen, both gunmen fled. One turned up at a hospital with stab wounds...

    Of note: 8th Home invasion in this year already, 11 for all of last year, in Des Moines, Iowa... Coming soon to a town near you, or me.

    @Oakchas: Well, even 40 + years back that wasn't the world's best location, being right off the traffic on 69, and close in to the down town area. No excuse for people to do what was done though.

    You can win if you bring this knife to a gun fight awesome_knife.jpg (yest that is real and KVAR imports them and yes it is NFA)

    Remenide me of this Nepali Gorkha who armed only with a Khurki knife took on 40 armed (some with guns ) train robbers and killed 8 hand to hand .. Never mess with a man who carries only one weapon

    I don't care how many knives you have that takes some stones to go after two guys armed with guns. Or maybe just need to be crazy.

    Possibly just desperate.

    I suppose the bottom line is: bring it, whatever "it" is. Offers some options beyond twiddling the fingers or asking to call 911.

    I saw a guy get his arm filleted from the tricep nearly to his wrist with a machete in Honduras. Don't know if he lived or not.

    As guilty as some CCW holders are of believing that the handgun is a talisman that will make thugs run away at the mere sight of one... I do think there are some thugs who feel their gun will ensure compliance with the same juju... And then, of course, there are toy guns, and airsoft that have ben painted to look real to convey the same juju...

    In either case, the gun IS NEVER the primary weapon... And those who believe it is may discover that INTENT wielded by the adversary can defeat any weapon, in close...

    Yup. Learned that one long ago in a handful of situations in which I'd been attacked. It's appalling what a person with the will to win liberally sprinkled with a bit of ruthlessness can accomplish, when it comes down to it, weapons or no. (Scared the heck out of me, that realization, though it was heartening to know I had it in me to 'refuse' such assaults.) It's a revelation just how much can be done without weaponry, if you keep your wits about you. Now, if only I'd add formal H2H skills to my tool kit ...

    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home with out. True, oh so true.
