    thats a pretty cool knife... but that hit didnt look immediatly fatal, which means he still could have been shot. (there are to many variables to say the knife is better)

    A firearm has multiple shots, and fires at a much, much faster speed than any throwing knife. With that blade, you have one chance to hit your target, and that guy could have fired multiple rounds before the other guy even raised his arm to throw his blade.

    Yeah a knife will beat a gun every time if you are using a stuffed dummy that cannot react or draw and does not give the added pressure or threat, funny video though.

    People should just stop replying to U8Dust. Maybe she'll get bored and go away.

    I'm dumber for having watched that.

    But, I guess if you carry around a 17" long, Made in China Kukri around in your pants, you are as well.

    I'll stick with my .45.

    I don't think Coldsteel is made in China. They're very good quality blades.

    I can catch a 95mph fast ball with my left hand. I shoot with my right. The only thing this guy gave me was a reason to take him down for attempted murder bloodying up my left hand. Hope he can catch bullets. I'm sure his center mass can.

    Q: Where are Cold Steel products made?

    Our products are manufactured world wide. Most items are made in Japan, Taiwan, or China

    Interesting. I have a kukri, and didn't even know that. Nonetheless, they're excellent quality blades.

    To be sure, I'm not a hater; I've owned several Cold Steel knives and never had a problem with them. In fact, I carry one of their Urban Pal push knives on my work uniform. Their stuff wouldn't necessarilybe my first choice of gear, but I'm satisfied with it thus far.

    When a criminal invades your home and has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

    My Definition of Gun Control: The idea that dozens of people found dead in the Broadway Café, Tasmania, and many also seriously wounded, all while waiting for police, who were called to show up and protect them, is somehow morally superior to having several armed and therefore alive civilian's explaining to police how the attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    I figured it took the idiot on the video to draw and throw his knife (illegal to carry) about 3 seconds. It took this guy 3 seconds to shoot 12 rounds (including reloading). Too this guy a little over a second to shoot 6 rounds.

    I want to see that guy throw 12 of those knives in 3 seconds

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Thats freaking outrages. I love watching the outdoor channel when they show Cisco and his draw. Very fast and very accurate. Unfortunatly I cant find any video of him.

    Edited for Bob. Did find the video on Bob, He's my idol. His wife is quite the markswoman also.

    One time I shot so far I had to lay the target on the ground so the bullet would hit it when falling to the ground

    Both of those shooters are awesome. Bob is freaking fast on the draw. He could shoot the knife thrower a dozen times before the knife-guy got his boomerang out of his pants. currently dancing to "Highway Man"-------------------------->:celebrate

    We need a quick-draw emoticon:what:
