    Australia.
    A fine example of gun-banners succeeding in their quest and what happens next.
    Let's say your occupation is 'gun-banner' and you make a successful living banning guns for years. Well, they are all banned, what do you do for a living now?:confused;
    You have always worked for the government and have no skills whatsoever to work for the private sector.
    You have to do something to justify your position and pay so what do you do?
    You start kicking over rocks to find ANYTHING that resembles a gun.
    Well, he found some 70-100 year-old guns in the museums :green man:Woop-te-dam-do.
    Like they are a source of danger to the public:rolleyes:.
    It's sickening how they are going to mutilate them in the name of political-correctness. Idiots:bang Head:.

    How stupid is this?
    Little known fact: Australia is larger than the US and is surrounded by thousands of miles of deserted coastline.
    You could pull a ship loaded full of firearms onto most of their coastlines and there wouldn't be a single human for 20 miles.
    If you think we have an unprotected border, theirs is only protected by miles of open ocean.
    Their 'black-market' for firearms is alive and well which means only criminals can buy guns.
    Brilliant. :bang Head:

    Are there gurus out there teaching the selection, shaping, conditioning and use of the staff? Are there techniques for their use in close quarters?

    That would probably be a big moneymaker in Australia.
    The best they have nowadays is a baseball bat, and all of those are aluminum now:oops:.
    The Aborigines are now more technologically advanced. They still have something to shoot:

    Atlatl...

    A primitive tool that uses leverage to achieve greater velocity in spear throwing, and includes a bearing surface which allows the user to store energy during the throw. It may consist of a shaft with a cup or a spur at the end that supports and propels the butt of the projectile.

    You were close VT...

    It really impressed me (and evidently, invading British troops:eek:).
    The power that the shaft (a round) hits, rivals a 20-gauge slug. About that same diameter and penetration.
    And if you look at the 100yd target far back in the pic, they could easily hit it too; just took more tries.
    I'm sure it's a really crude, inaccurate and simplistic weapon until you're looking at a 5' shaft stuck thru your body:bigeyes:
    For Australians and their gun laws today, it's probably the most lethal* weapon they can buy:rolleyes:.

    *not effective indoors.

    A primitive but quite effective tool that was developed around the globe at roughly the same time BC...to extend reach and double the power of the thrown object...

    Amazing really...cultures not in contact with each other developing similar technologies

    History. (on topic:D)

    The Aboriginal people were considered 'animals' not humans, so killing them was no big deal.
    And if Australia's stupid gun laws weren't enough embarrassment:rolleyes:....
    ie: not history:bang Head:.

    Kinda like if the liberals succeed in erasing the Civil War from our history,
    We'll suddenly appear to be much nicer people flower70.gif
