Well, All I can say is that if you have to make these things to have weapons; one, you live in the northeast or the left coast, and two you’re screwed. Now, having said that, everyone SHOULD have the knowledge of how to build these things. So from that POV, I see the point, but otherwise, you should live somewhere you can have these weapons to begin with. IMO, be well.

True, but the Left Coast will be the first to revolt over the northeast. Lots of libtards over here, but we all need our space. We can’t go any further West! The Northwest especially is a distillation of polar opposites where there are high amounts of extreme socialists living among an almost equal number of fearless conservatives. Who will win?

The only three things on this list that were actually weapons were the bow, the stun gun and the club. The rocket gun was cool, and I certainly wouldn’t want to get shot by it, but I highly doubt that it would make an effective anti-personnel weapon unless you gave the rockets some kinda warhead. And even then they don’t look big enough to carry a substantial load and still remain accurate over any real distance.
The others were more like science projects. Maybe I’ll help my niece make the mini-cannon for her science fair.

I agree with you. I liked the bow, the rocket gun is cool, if the rockets were made better and a sharp point or maybe and arrowhead.
