Tell me about it . But when that 7000gr. slug bent that barrel and kept right on going into 2 pieces out the back of the safe I was like :exploding_head:

Flechettes are usually 2" long +/-. I have a 60" LOA (44" bbl) rifle and a 58" LOA (42" bbl) smoothbore. They are on the walls as no normal safe will hold them. Longarms belong on the wall, anyway.

Market hunters used them at the end of the 19th century (notably on the Chesapeake Bay) to take out dozens of waterfowl on the water (not in flight). The punts were little, flat and usually camoflaged boats, like 4’ wide kayaks, usually covered with cut grasses.

Oh, and they also work well on Graboids. :wink:

Wow. Makes me think of giant katanas (nodachi) used by infantry to fight cavalry. I’ve seen one whose blade was over 7 feet long.

The size of nodachi varied a lot. I think the record was 12’4". Often an assistant was needed to sheathe and unsheathe the blade.

Sounds like you have studied up on those type swords. Or are we talking from first hand experience in sword or sword collecting ?@MusashiAharon

I wish I were stacked enough to own one, but I’m not and I don’t have one. This is just from what I’ve read in English when I visited Japan, and stuff I’ve read online since.
