You can always put it in your sock and swing it. For anything below a 9mm, its worth considering.
Cleaning and skinning...
Frying it up (sauteing in olive oil, that is)...
Looks like meat is back on the menu ! That's homemade sriracha sauce in the foreground, BTW.
Preserving the hide after lunch.
Thanks for indulging me, guys...
Fatherhood....you're doing it right.
You're all so fucking wrong. Pull guard against gun, no can defense
Seriously though (I'm certain this has been discussed many times before) the word "art" confuses the **** out of many people who conflate it with Fine Art rather than meaning the learned skills/techniques acquired through extensive training.
Firearms training is martial arts in every sense of the term, far more so than many other things which are labelled as martial arts, which in fact have more in common with fine art in that they are more concerned with aesthetics than practical application.
Gun • fighting: a compound word?
Let's face it, if ones gunfighting training consists solely of shooting targets at a range, isn't that akin to doing all ones BJJ or Judo training against a grappling dummy? What if your Kung Fu training was only forms and working against a wooden dummy? How well will that solo training prepare you for a fight against a live opponent?
This IMHO is why most firearms training is not considered "martial art". Well, that and picking up kids in a minivan with a "Master Chuck's Afterschool Gunfighting Academy" sign would be a hard sell to most suburban moms.
I've got a rifle so old it's production was commissioned by a Russian Tsar for the express purpose of putting down charging cavalry horses. It's type has been used by some of the most infamous and successful snipers in the history of war. It works just as well today as it did in the revolution and two world wars in which it saw service. It will penetrate both sides of a bullet proof vest, knock a ragged hole the size of a grapefruit through the poor schmuck wearing it and simultaneously turn most of their internal organs into dog food from hydro static shock. You could hit a man anywhere on their body and they will likely die from shock and blood loss. It will easily nail whatever you point it as for as far out as you can realistically see.
This devastating war machine is considered obsolete and cost's less than two bags of groceries. I assure you that despite it's age and frugality it will absolutely wreck any living thing you turn it on with monotonous reliability.
Just because there are newer, flashier weapons with fancy plastic parts and larger magazines doesn't mean they are "better".
Take Phrost's advice and learn something about guns before you make more silly statements out of ignorance.
