    Many years ago, I bounced another kid off of a fire hydrant. Does that count as a makeshift weapon, an improvised weapon, or neither?

    Best improvised weapon?
    Picking up one assailant and using him to beat his friends to death.

    not a prison story, but it proves that makeshifts weapons work...
    I had a dog chase me while jogging, so I punched the little fucker out without breaking stride. When I got home I realized my watch was missing, so I walked back to the scene of the punch, (maybe 200 yards,) doggie still there, out cold, with bits of watch all around him.

    As for the mercury-filled bamboo stick, it doesn't surprise me the Chinese chose that. Ancient China was gay for mercury - they valued it more than gold.

    You have to admit that mercury is pretty cool.

    I think discussion of improvised weapons could be productive. As long as we stay away from the tacticool ninja BS.

    Improvised means just that. Made up on the spot.

    I know a few makeshift weapons

    A Master Lock in a sock will solve anything

    Fold a newspaper tightly (mentioned somewhat before) then fold it in half and there will be a really hard crease, could beat someone to death with it.

    A broken watch band makes a nice pair of makeshift knuckle dusters.

    A roll of quarters gives you a bit of heavy handedness to your punches.

    I've seen a bar of soap scraped down to a pretty hard point, looked like a really thick nail.

    A nail with a duct tape handle makes a good shiv

    hell a broken bottle is a popular weapon.

    .
    If you're learning Rope Dart, a practice method is to wrap a bar of soap in a handtowel and tie it to the cord, giving you a "soapdart" to play with and minimise risk of bodily or household damage.

    From a legal standpoint, I would steer clear of make-shift weapons.

    If I go walking around with lead shot in my ball cap, it would be easy for an attorney to portray me as a wackjob. If I'm merely exercising my rights carrying a pocket folder, which many men do around here for reasons other than cutting people up, I am much less of a wack job.

    I want to second what DerAuslander said, and include a dire legal warning. Depending on your juridiction, makeshift weapons may be considered concealed weapons, and treated as such.

    In North Carolina at least, that's a bad thing.

    Concealed weapons, or the fact that I took the time to dreate a makeshift weapon for the purpose of carrying it on my person, rather than purchasing a knife or a licensed firearm, may be concidered malice aforethought.

    Stick that in your eyebrow and raise it, Elmoron.

    If you're going to go down this road, I suggests learning to use everyday objects that yuo have on your person as weapons, IE umbrella, walking stick, roll of quarters (hey, you were going to the bank later!) or even things like furniture and garden tools. Any tool is a weapon if you hold it right.

    This does not, repeat does NOT, include the tactical use of a flashlight. Unless it's a 4D Maglite. In which case, rock on.
