Favourite (Real) Weapon
 
Simply put, whats your favourite real life weapon? No disturbing confessions of using them. You never even have had to have held one to haev a favourite. Just something you'd like to be armed with incase you wake up and everyone else is "undead" etc.

Mine? P90 Sub.

It's like pure sex in gun form.

Sabretooth 03-29-2009 01:22 AM

Don't really have much of a deep interest in modern weaponry or anything, but I like the Dragunov, because it's Soviet, it's a sniper rifle and it has the most kickass weapon name of all time:

And of course, the pride of every third world nation:

Fine choices indeed, the People's Dragunov, the prime weapon of the Soviet Sniper Corp, and the Kalashnikov, an amazing legend in itself...but my favorite goes back to the AK's German ancestor.....


http://i434.photobucket.com/albums/q...halq/STG44.jpg

....The Sturmgewehr 44!!


Yep, the Germans sure did know how to make an effective weapon, became a legend during WW2, still has a profound impact on the world of weapons.

Sabretooth 03-29-2009 01:56 AM

^^ Good choice as well, the Nazis also had a way with developing kickass weaponry with equally kickass names, like Sturmgewehr. Sturmgewehr. Compare with Allied inventions: The Thompson rifle. Thompson? Seriously?

GeneralPloKoon 03-29-2009 02:22 AM

TSR! You sotle MY weapon! :p P90 is my fav, its the main weapon in Stargate SG1 and Atlantis:D!

Bah! Modern weapons are so surgical - where's the romance?

From my own collection (none of these can actually fire, but given the chance I'd have the real things):

Though, for zombie killing, i'd go with a machine gun backed up by a cavalry sabre.

**** yeah, you take the machinegun, I impale zombies, horseback and with a lance. That's the most awesome zombie-killing duo I've ever seen. :D

Thanks Sabre! Indeed, the Nazis always had good gun names...even the meaning of Sturmgewehr is awesome....Storm Gun....that sure beats a Thompson:D

Somehow, I knew you'd pick those weapons, they are indeed classics, but for zombie killing, I'd take a shotgun, and a Samurai sword, aim for the head!:D {Though Sabre's idea of riding on a horse and lancing the zombies is pretty cool too:D}

You know what you need, Astor? You need a Magnum...most powerful gun in the world:D

Lt Wolf 03-30-2009 12:48 PM

i'd have to say either the PPSH...

http://www.modelguns.co.uk/images/ppsh15.jpg

or maybe the Tompson. :D

SW01 03-30-2009 03:12 PM

My favourite is the Smith & Wesson Model 626 - .357 Magnum round, 6" barrel, 'blued', with wooden grips. It's also the same one I use for target shooting! :D

Show spoiler


It looks the same as this example, which is the famous Model 29 (.44 Magnum).

Or something more fanciful...

Show spoiler


SA80 L85A2, though I prefer it without the scope.

TSR 03-30-2009 07:56 PM

I'm fully trained in the use of the SA80A2- Standard rifle of the Biritsh Armed forces, boo-yah.

jrrtoken 03-30-2009 09:22 PM

The XM8, because it looks so much like some Halo-esque weapon of tomorrow.
Show spoiler
What's great about it is that it's so adaptable, much like the DM-17 :p
Show spoiler


And of course, there's the minigun, for the sake of being badass.
Show spoiler
See what I mean:

LordOfTheFish 03-30-2009 09:56 PM

MP-40. I lurvs that thing! XM8 is a nice model as well, along side G36c.

Fun!

I also like the H&K MP5 series, for its sheer versatility. Plus it looks nice - both the MP5K
Show spoiler


and the MP5A3
Show spoiler


A very nice choice for all game involving infiltration of any kind! Regrettably, I haven't had a chance to fire one...:(

LordOfTheFish 03-30-2009 11:38 PM

Yes, MP5s are truly amazing guns. Would be my first choice for any close range combat.

Da_man 03-31-2009 01:14 AM

Guitar. Pete Townshend used it.

Keep off his stage. :carms:

But really, the Japanese Kamas:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...c/c1/Kamas.jpg

And for the record, I have a pair and know how to use 'em.

No one said it had to be a gun.

LordOfTheFish 03-31-2009 02:03 PM

Kamas are sick. I use to take a Okinawan weapons class where they taught kamas. I never did get around to learning them though...

CommanderQ 03-31-2009 02:18 PM

You know, that reminds me of my second favorite weapon....the SAMURAI DAISHO!!! A Katana and a shorter wakizashi blade which is a symbol of loyalty, to the point that if told to, the Samurai would commit suicide with that sword. Quite the awesomeness....I love Japanese weaponry and martial arts....:D

Sabretooth 03-31-2009 02:22 PM

If we're talking melée as well, then my favourite is the Pata, a kickass sword gauntlet that Tanaji "Lion" Malusare had dual-weilded during the epic siege of Kondhana/Sinhagadh.

http://www.oriental-arms.com/photos/...02127/ph-0.jpg

Also, the deceptive and cunningly avant-garde Urumi:
http://www.earmi.it/armi/glossario/immagini/urumi.jpg

And of course, the beautiful Japanese katana, which I need not Google Image Search for. :D

AWESOME SWORD!!!!!!! AWESOME URUMI!! Fine choices indeed..:D

Yes, we all love the amazing katana...:D

SW01 03-31-2009 04:59 PM

Okay then - swordplay's good too:

The greatest historical sword ever - the gladius hispaniensis

Or, a nice British Royal Navy sword from the Napoleonic Wars:

jrrtoken 03-31-2009 05:12 PM

Known as the macuahuitl in Nahuatl, it is the Mesoamerican equivalent of a sword, and more contemporarily, a cricket bat with obsidian blades on the side.

Form over function, my friend, form over function - the 1796 Heavy Cavalry Sabre wins over most other Napoleonic Swords (But then again, I do have a thing for Cavalry)...

Show spoiler

TSR 03-31-2009 06:52 PM

But you cannot deny we looked super-fly wielding them.

And we won :)

Well, that blade does look much more imposing...like a huge carving knife with a guard.

It's my firm belief that British troops would look super-fly even if we went into battle wearing corsets and armed with chamber-pots. :D

Embellishing weapons is much more of a girly thing really - as the French at the time proved... :lol:

Not that i'd want to mess with a Grognard of Le Grande Armee...
