katana, gladius or spear?
a katana is not good for close quarters combat, a reason why the ninja did not use one, they used the shorter version of a katana, i forget what they are called, i think it starts with a "w". Unless you live in a rural area right now, your going to have to get out of the city which will be alot of CQC if # really goes into chaos.
a gladius would make sense although I think like someone else said, isnt it only 1 edged? would be a good machete.
a spear? # for CQC unless youve trained with one for half your life haha. a hunting with it? do you have the muscles developed to throw the spear like a javelin? cause I know i sure as hell dont. I think i could get maybe 20-30 yards with accuracy and then I dont know how much force it would have.
I would use a hatchet, 1 side for cutting wood (once outside of the city haha) or fashioning tools and or weapons with the blunt side for breaking locks and or something that needed to be opened.edit on 8-12-2010 by epitaph.one because: (no reason given)

Ok people. For starters I'm upset that this isn't a weaponry forum subject anymore. As it stands, guns go through ammunition really fast, and even though some people could make more powder and ammo, most couldn't. The weapons left would be bows and arrows, and swords, and makeshift weapons. And it could easily happen anywhere, through war, or natural disasters.

I can tell that you have never lived in rural Louisiana!
I'm a girl, and I can guaran-dang-tee you that I have used all of the weapons that I have listed, many times. When you grow up out in the country on a working farm, you learn to do ALL kinds of thing! It's great!

Trouble causing troll with not a lick of commin sense!!!!!
If you dont know how to make your own powders, then you might want to start on your bow & arrow building skills now or start work on learning Black powder making and Musket shooting skills, one or the other will keep you feed unless your a R-tard without a lick of commin sense
