I don't fancy getting painfully beat to death with one. I prefer it be over quickly.

I am talking about self defense here. Without my gun I don't stand a chance in hell, and if the other guy doesn't have a gun either, it would be one very painful last experience. I pass.

If I was going up against a man with a baseball bat I would want a knife. A baseball bat is a medium range melee weapon. With a knife you can conceal it and use it when the attacker doesn't expect it if you're old, or you can jump straight in and shorten the baseball bat's swing. Just remember not to hold the knife out in front of you, keep it back. Knives can be grabbed off you and used against you, which is why people that voluntarily bring them to a fight are stupid. But there is more chance of getting hold of a knife in your house if there is an intruder.

People don't just go into someone else's house and start bashing away, they normally want something else like money. Even without a knife you can still grapple and bite. No one likes a biter. And if you're older and fear someone intruding who is much younger and stronger than you then get a couple of big dogs. Dogs aren't held back by the same fears that humans have and intruders know this. And they're biters.

Admittedly I used to do a lot of martial arts in my mid 20's but that doesn't mean to say that other people can't also learn self defense if they're worried about their personal safety. The advice was always, if you're mugger has a knife, just run away. Another thing I learnt you can rush someone from quite a distance before they can pull a gun out of its holster. I'd have to find out who found this out again but it was first established by a policeman at the turn of the last century in China.

No one is going to get close enough to use any melee weapon as I will have shot him first.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
