I agree with you completely, Mayniack, about stamina being important. Personally, I can swing a 10 lb sledge all day, as I have done it for work for better than a decade. You're right about the speed of the weapon as well. For a group of more than 3 or 4, a camp hatchet would be great. But the Fubar will be my hands on, primary tool/weapon for the looming Apocalypse. I have a hatchet in my bug out bag for back up. Although... its a cheap ass Walmart special... I should man up and buy a Gerber Camp Axe.
A chainsaw works great in the movies but is totally impractical for anything except its intended use. They are loud and require gas to run on. Swinging one around like a weapon often ends up in a very bad injury to the wielder.
Yea...the Fubar is definately a weapon of epic scale...not only will it sledge heads, but you can get into pretty much anywhere with that thing! I just think if Daniel Day-Lewis...and he wrecked shop with 2 hatchets.
windlass warhammers/maces. (bar mace looks brutal) around 2lb
wood maul 6lb(if your strong enough).
36" axe handle.
long torque wrench.
if your desperate, take your sock off and put a rock in it.
