A gun also leaves less time for the assailant to think about their actions. One pull of the trigger and the person could die. You have to wreck someone repeatedly with a blunt object to kill them, most people would probably realize they should stop before it gets to the point of brains on the floor... Then it would just be assault charges or attempted murder.
handguns are the hardest to aquire of the 3...but killing power was my point...A handgun is the easiest to use and the most lethal...then a knife...then a blunt object.

Blunt objects are the easiest to aquire, and the least amount of deaths...anyone can aquire a pipe or a hammer or a bat...but it is more difficult to kill someone with a blunt object than a knife which sees more murders and obviously a gun which sees the most.

I don't know what "winged" means to you but if you are shot in the torso head or thigh you're going down unless it is a .22 calibre or something

getting shot in the arm then maybe you're right...but he is still at a disadvantage with only one arm

Gun obviously and without a question...

If you choose the gun, you're not getting shot, and who do you think the other two would go for? Who in his right mind would chose to attack a guy with a gun over a guy with a knife\pipe?

I would wait for knife vs pipe match up winner and i would kill him.

If some idiot try to attack me first, i would put a bullet in his head a proceed to pick up his knife\pipe.

^^^

1. handguns
2. knives
3. blunt objects

why are murders at different rates with different weapons? they are listed by ease of use...it's really hard to kill someone with a pipe or bat, many times that ends up with both people holding it and pulling at it...whch is why killers have more success with knives, but of course a handgun takes the cake.

This is absolutely meaningless. We're talking about a cage match with multiple armed people trying to kill you, not unsuspecting murder victims.

I didn't mean it's easier to get a gun than a pipe or knife. I meant it's easier to have a gun in your pocket, sneak up on someone and kill them than it is to have a 3 foot pipe and do the same. That's why there are more gun deaths than pipe/bat/whatever deaths.

And like bmulls said, those stats don't mean jack in a scenario like this. Just because it's easier doesn't mean it's better in a combat scenario.

A bullet to about anywhere certainly will make people stop and cry about it.

A gun is literally a death machine lol

I'm leaning towards the lead pipe but then again that would leave you at a disadvantage due to how big it is and how it will basically cripple you.

The gun would be an instant kill but would it be easy to kill someone when they are running around? But then again if you had strong combat skills you can disarm the dude with the knife or lead pipe.

I'd probably go for the knife.

It's not meaningless at all, and not all of these were unsuspecting assassinations...it is clear evidence of which tools are the most efficient for killing
