    Wonder if it was one of those cast iron assault skillets and if he used a backhand or forehand stroke, either way good job on defending his sister.

    Depends on the "cook" too. The contents of that skillet could have been just as deadly if not properly prepared.

    All kidding aside, you have to use what is available if you don't have a firearm. I could name a dozen or more kitchen utensils that could be employed as a deadly weapon.

    And to think we spend thousands of dollars on the best firearms and get into heated arguments over what is the best ammo just to be out done by a 15.00 frying pan

    Yeah, but now comes the cast-iron/aluminum/copper/steel debate.

    Cast iron skillet may work, but it would be impossible for me to put one in my jeans pocket. I'll stick with my LCP and SP101.

    Now we come to the debate. Cast iron skillet visa Wooden Rolling Pin.

    I knew a man whose wife periodically took the pan to him. It did no good.
    He had a regular comedy routine about her he could have used in a nightclub act and he
    wouldn't stop. Somehow he couldn't figure out that the pain in his head was being caused by
    his big mouth.

    This is the first thing that came to my mind as well. I equate the cast iron skillets that I prefer to be the equivalent of the good old fashioned 1911 that I carry while cooking with cast iron skillets. Both cast Iron skillets and 1911 offer plenty of knock down power but do have the disadvantage of a bit extra weight. I have seen a near miss with a cast iron skillet cause the intended target to soil their pants much the way the sight of a 1911 will do to offenders.

    Now modern cookware much like Glocks offer much less knockdown power but make up for it by being cheaper and easier to carry. Yes you can carry more of these cheap aluminum skillets on you but with cast you only need the one.

    I have been thinking about making a video showing the difference in stoping power between cast skillets (1911) and the new fangled cheap skillets (Glocks) like are currently popular on the home shopping network. Got to round up some pigs heads first.

    EDIT: Does the added velocity of the smaller 6" aluminum skillet make up for much slower but heavier mass of the larger cast iron skillet? The cast Iron does not expand but then again it doesn't need to.
