    More like, "Well your honor, I reached down to grab my .40, but for some reason I couldn't unholster it...it was like it was stuck to my skin. So I grabbed my homemade war club from its wall display and drilled the guy in the head."

    If the bat had spikes, though, I'd be dead.

    He failed to mention it was against a pack of Girl Scouts who were pissed he didn't buy enough Samoa cookies. He finished the fight by giving them his credit card.

    I just placed an order for two boxes of Samoa cookies last night. I'll be sure and have $7 on hand when they arrive so I don't take another one in the head.

    Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookies! Alas, the fight wasn't over anything so good.

    A girl I work with was taking orders for her friend's little sister. I said two boxes of the caramel-chocolates but everyone was ordering Samoas. I asked what they were and after she told me I changed my order. After hearing about them I have very high hopes for their goodness.

    Have no fear. The Samoa is possibly the greatest cookie ever manufactured.

    Big +1 on that. I can go through a whole box in one sitting. Granted the boxes are ridiculously small, but it's still a box.

    Samoas!

    IMO Thin Mints and Tag a Longs are the better way to go.

    Funny how a thread about war clubs has morphed into a discussion about Girl Scout Cookies.

    At least the Scouts are defensible in court.

    Oh, I don't know about that. If you're in a courtroom with a girl scout, you'd better hope you're on the same side of the isle...

    I don't ever plan to use a war club on someone. Just always wanted to make one. They're lethal, but a shotgun still works better for home defense.

    Technically that would be considered a Morning Star. A mace has an object on the end, I.E. a ball, and a flail is on a chain. A morning star is a stick with spikes. I could be wrong in this reply but I think I am pretty accurate. I have a nice spiked mace that is hand carved on my nightstand for decoration. The 9mm in the drawer is for home protection.

    Maces are usually confused with flails. If it's a ball on a chain or other form of flexible connection, it's a flail. If it's attached to the handle, it's a mace. "Morning star" entails a particular design involving a sphere with spikes, whether it be a mace or flail. A club with spikes protruding from it for part of its length is a war club.

    These are morning stars, both on a mace and a flail.





    There is nothing more terrifying than someone swinging a fifteen foot morning star flail in your direction. No it's never happened to me, but just think about it.

    Yeah, but he'd only get one try. The recoil is fierce.
    Maybe hit him with a Girl Scout, instead?

    I'd rather use any typical firearm, or even a longbow. Girl scouts tend to be really squirmy, and it would be like trying to hurl a 90-pound trout, but without the slimy skin unless it was summer and she had just finished a 4-hour door-to-door selling spree. The badges may offer some additional grip, though.
