Thread: T and T Weapons Development Section Q

    Default T and T Weapons Development Section Q

    I have often been told I am a bit different. I have since just learned to live with it. I get an idea or see something and my mind is off and running. With the recent post on the grappling hook/chain cards set me off. Elves in my mind I guess, starting a list: tiny necklace chain, 28 gauge beading wire, 1/4" fishing sinkers and if they still make them size 16 triple fish hooks.

    Thread the wire through the chain, attach the lead weight to one end and the fish hook on the other end, voila! A bit of winding and shaping the chain into a spiral and you have a ball and grappling hook weapon in 3D!

    Definitely mine, if I were to do Tripe-pods...….fortunately for me, I won't.
    But I do have multiple memories of getting those triple hooks caught up in various places back in my fishing days!

    Great idea, Clipper, and super finished article.

    Who else but you would have come up with the actual device. AWESOME as always.

    Great work, David, if anyone could make that it would be you. Perhaps we should call you Q.

    I would definitely file or grind down those hooks. And the barbs too.
    Otherwise, looks great!
