    Going to be making new icons for this forum...

    Anyone have suggestions?

    We already have:

    Guns
    Tactics
    Military
    Weapons

    Was thinking of:

    Ammo
    Whack (sticks/staffs)
    Stab (knives/swords)
    Boom (explosives)

    I was thinking of taking a screen capture of a little girl firing a BMG. If you want it let me know.

    That looks good. One suggestion:

    Exotic Weapons: for of the occasional thread on spear, nunchuku or other weirder TMA weapons.

    Just an idea, however, most of those weapons can fit in whack or stab.

    I think that traditional weapons fit in the "weapons" icon.

    Guns takes care of anything gun related.

    As much as I love explosives, I don't ever recall a discussion on it, and I don't think it would be a good idea to get instructional discussion on that here.

    If you want to widen the icon availability how about

    Clubs
    Blades

    Hmmm, one would one categorize brass nuckles and similar weapons? Just an esotheric question. The idea is great, specially if you create icons for the "whack" category. If the icons were go to have titles such as "whack", "stab" and "boom", that would be teh c00l.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Explosives is a bad idea, too much misinformation floats around about them, and it will attract jackasses to the forum.

    How's about "Glass" for scopes and other optics?

    I like the "Whack" & "Stab" ideas. How about instead of "Boom" for explosives and make "Kapow" (or some similar campy 60's Batmanish) for ammo.
