I guess if it was all I had, I'd settle for rebar, but I'd much
rather a small pistol. Or a medium-sized one. ;-}

A light sword a la Star Wars would be a pretty awesome weapon, as
long as you're better at using it than your opponent (same as
anything else, I guess) - And I'm pretty sure we're a ways from
a handheld weapons-grade laser - I'm a tooling designer for the
latest version of The Airborne Laser ( http://www.airbornelaser.com/ ),
and I don't know how big the actual laser itself is, but the power
supply occupies the entire rest of the fuselage of a 747. Maybe
handheld for King Kong or the Jolly Ho Ho Ho Green Giant! ;-}
