Shouldn't there be a thread about forging swords,weapons etc? After all this is a defence forum. Enthusiasts from air guns,knife,sword making,armorers etc. can please give their inputs. Chinese already have a compulsory conscription of 6 months for their citizens.Where are we when compared to that? do we expect our army to hold on forever when the chinese reserves kick in? we need to learn from our enemies too.Teach and let know, how a common Indian can use a gun in times of danger, if you think the villagers will fight with lathis and swords, while the enemy mows you down with AK-47's and mortar fire.That is suicide. A colonial force always confiscates the Arms and the right to bear arms and penalizes those who practice such arts.it happened in India when British took over,they made us goats to their slaughter. Kalaripayat,Gatka and other practices were banned so as to smoothen their hold over India. Why are we still holding on to the same British Rules in our Constitution to bear arms and train for it? Do we still have some colonial baggage? or there is some inferiority complex? which i know it's not. Then what are we waiting for? The only Civilization to stand the test of time, while others collapsed, why are we imposing this suicidal rules upon ourselves? we are Surrounded by enemies.Wake up and smell the coffee.Nobody will fight your wars,USA will pussyfoot as usual,We fight for our own.
