Hi folks, I am back with another interesting weaponry topic that is often overlooked. Your computer/laptop. Most people use computers to access the internet as a vital means of communications but its use is far beyond the internet.

A computer with a good wifi card and a satellite dish can be able to pick up wifi hotspots for miles on end. This is good for when you are driving and need to acess a wifi hotspot. Knowing more information than your enemy is the difference between life and death

Computer systems can also plan and organize multiple people and distribute vital information for a plan of action.

I have made a list of important software:
excel - track supplies
mapping - track assets
communications - instant messengers, ad hoc software tools, PGP secuirty, email security, VOIP
scanner - make your documents compact
Lots of USB drives - give and store info
external HD - make a digital library of your favorite topics

Munitions in the military sense would mean ordinance or objects of lethal potentiality -- no?

Surely, computers are considered munition, very much like a hunter would consider his compass munitions.

That would fall under the definition number 2, noun

"material or equipment for carrying on any undertaking. "

Kind of a silly topic, but I get where you were trying to go with it...

Yes computers are dangerous, because they allow humans to network thoughts and store data in a much more compact, faster, and easier to organize way.

Welcome to the social club.
