This is near fucking interesting and awesome, but then how does he cope with the fact that he cant hear the barks as a sign of alert. I mean, you are on patrol walking aroun post-apocalyptic lands and you must be alert at your surroundings and also keeping an eye on the dog's reactions.
Not criticizing, Just wanting to know how does your friend deal with the bark removed dog
These are all I need for the apocalypse:
In fact, starting with just the pipe hawk head, you can produce just about anything else you need to survive.
The trucker's friend loses a bit of the handiness by virtue of the way it's handle is set up. No easy detach and if you do manage to get them apart without damaging it permanently the head won't be as easy to wield.
There's a reason the really enduring designs from the old days were made the way they are.
It is that sort of dog.
But if patrolling the dog is on a lead so you would feel it. and if you come in range the dog will mangle you. This is a crowd control thing where the handler might be in danger of being snuck up from behind and hit so instead the handler has a 360 degree of protection.
It does make it quite funny in some of the bigger fights. because I would be punching on and the handler would be punching on while the dog is biting people and you would drift too close and suddenly the dog would come at me and I would have to jump out of the way. There were some very close calls.
This pic almost made it into the Glock section, but I couldn't come up with a good Buddha/Zombie joke for it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnxlhajOolw They use the phalanx for about a minute in 300, and then abandon it for the rest of the movie. And even when they use the phalanx formation, the choreographer has the front rank men raise their shields high out of the way as they stab forward. No, no, no. The shield stayed in place, and protected the man holding it, and the man to his left. Thrusts were done over the shield. Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McwmRQUTfKk Of course, "shield wall" formations were used for centuries, so there are plenty of variations. Here's how the Romans did it: oversize shields and short stabbing swords. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqzDrFX-cNs Or you could go the haphazard Dark Age route and emulate the Vikings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy9OVIz4jqY What? You can't get over the silliness of a half-dozen reenactment Vikings to imagine how a full scale battle looked? Okay, maybe the sheer scale of the 2006 Battle of Hastings reenactment will help. Hastings is one of the last great Shield Wall battles. After this, heavy cavalry -- knights -- take prominence on the early Medieval battlefield.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xD4EP3dpmes Hmmm... I wonder how heavy cavalry would fare against zombies?
