I always carry a cutter in my backpack and I like the idea to additionally carry an steel pipe, and I have the philosophy of “If you’re almost dead, unconscious or with everything broken you won’t bother me anymore”
I haven’t been into much fights in my life, and I’ll probably get fucked up anyways by anyone on Derpibooru because I’m a scrawny dude and of course any martial artist is going to throw me through the room, but I have the belief that it’s best to neutralize the menace rather than give him some punches and be like “Don’t mess with me”. Most of the fights I’ve seen where one shows who’s boss but leaves the other relatively fine, the other one immediately attempts to attack him later or in his back in a dirty handed tactic with some object. Hence why I want to leave them unconscious with a whack in the head or break their legs. Without legs they can’t chase me no longer, and I don’t have to worry of them returning for a second bout when I turn around to do my stuff.
Also, steel pipes and cutters because of force multipliers. I already have to worry a lot in where I live for being stolen with a gun or knife, so let’s make stuff a bit even. If I were in another country like the USA (And I can’t get either a Beretta 93R or a Five-SeveN), I would probably have these always with me:
Electroshock Weapon or Stun Gun
And I won’t give a fudge to the guy that just attempted to kill me, I’m not gonna care just how much you whine it hurts or beg me to stop, I’m gonna go fucking hammertime and outright become an WW1 Stosstrupp and bludgeon you repeatedly until you physically can’t hurt me no more.
