The never ending quest for new and exciting weapons continues...

Anybody have any experience with a billiard ball, in a nylon
stocking? I've never seen it used in anger, but I bet it could
bop someone real good... if anyone has any ideas for a solo
form practice, I'm open... "the Pool Player's Poomse"

Not exactly something you can pocket - or is it? - but
it might have its place, methinks.

I think that'd take far too long to create to be a handy weapon of
circumstance. "Could you stop punching me for a second while I take
off my sock and put that 9 ball into it?" I'd think you'd be better
off practicing baseball-fu with the balls and using the cue as a light
staff.

Kind of like the idea of using your shoe as defense in a knife
fight... if you're in a knife fight and you have time to take off
your shoe and put it in your hand, who in the hell are you fighting?

Better yet, just hold the ball in your hand and use it to bludgeon -
think palm slap upside the head. The cue makes for a barely adequate
staff; it doesn't have a lot of mass behind it, and will probably
break after one or two solid hits.

Then you have a pointy smaller stick. You can do a lot with that too.

In any event, there's quite a few weapons of oportunity hanging out in
a bar with a pool table in it. No need to worry about trying to make
a bola out of your socks and a pool ball.

A ninja would break the cue in half, drill holes in the ends of each
with his finger, then thread his sock through the holes to make
nunchaku.

There was an incident in town a few years back - a fight outside a
pool hall - and yeah, the billiard ball in the sock was employed, with
one death resulting.

Well *some* ninja mixed the white shinobi with the black shinobi in
the team washing machine last week.

No ideas who *that* ninja might be? Hmm?
