I like weapons that present a challenge. Like a bow and arrow, sword, nunchucks etc. There's a challenge in handling these weapons. [SPOILER]I have no idea why I posted this.[/SPOILER] I'd just like to say, there certainly is challenge to be had in using guns. A gun, in my view, while lethal even i...

Probably the gentlest, closest razor is the Gillette Venus, but I use the Gillette Mach 3 because I am a man .
