Psst, hey buddy, psst.
I'm gonna let you in on something. Yes, a secret. Promise not tell the rest.

But: GUNS ARE COMMERCIALIZED AND HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED AROUND THE WORLD. Yes, just about every country possesses guns.

Ssssshhhhhh

I simply don't understand why you take pride in having bandits in your country. You are even trying to compete about having the most skilled bandits.

Rape, with possibly violent assault and robbery vs 3 deaths. I say he was justified

The kicker is, he didn't get involved because of the robbery. He apparently even gave up the cash he had because it wasn't his fight. The rape thing sent him into berzgurkha mode though.

In 1994, right at the beginning of his run as Walker, Texas Ranger, Norris was, and still is, living in Dallas, Texas, where the show was filmed. One day he was walking down the street by himself, no entourage, no fans following him, no bodyguards, not even his wife. He turned a commercial block in the downtown skyscraper area and saw two men a little bigger than him coming straight for him from the other end of the block.

They were staring right at him, and he figured they wanted autographs, which he enjoys signing. So he walked up to them and stopped with a smile, whereupon they stood in front of him, whipped out a couple of large pocketknives, and one of them demanded, “Give me your wallet, Chuck! Give it here!”

Norris actually opened his mouth wide and then asked, “Are you insane!?”

“No! We know who you are! And we know you got a lot of money! Now give it up, or you’re dead!”

Now before we go further, let us just go over a few of the particulars. All jokes aside, Chuck Norris truly does have the following black belts: 1st degree in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, 8th Degree Grandmaster in Tae Kwon Do, 9th degree in Jeet Kune Do under Bruce Lee and Lee’s best student, Dan Inosanto, 10th degree in ***** Ryu Karate, 10th degree in Tang Soo Do, 11th degree in Chun Kuk Do.

Granted, the last art is his own concoction, a hybrid of all the best moves he has learned over the years, all blended for both self-defense and competition, and you are only allowed a 10th degree or better in anything when you found your own dojo. But suffice to say, the muggers didn’t even use guns. From a hundred feet away. They used knives within arm’s reach. What happened next was rather anti-climactic.

The police arrived about 4 minutes later, 3 officers in two cars, and were greeted by the scene of two men with SEVERELY broken arms (the bones had gone through the skin) sitting on the curb, two bloody knives in the gutter, and Chuck Norris, the Almighty Himself, leaning against the wall, wearing his beard, jeans, cowboy boots and a cowboy hat….he shrugged at them. The police started laughing so hard that they bent over, holding their sides, unable to put the handcuffs on the muggers. One of them managed to ask, “Did you not know who he was?!”

One of them said, “Yeah, we knew who he was! We figured all that stuff on TV was fake!”

It is. They use them for so many things in their day to day lives (for chopping wood, opening tins etc) they'd be covered in scars from constantly having to draw blood with it.

And a lot of them are. Normally they just prick their thumbs with the tip. If they don't draw blood with it, then they're not a real Gurkha. My dad met a few of them during his travels in the Navy throughout Asia, and if they pulled out their knife, they always made a small cut somewhere before putting it back.

many cultures hold blades to have a spirit or power, if you draw it without letting it taste blood you have woken the spirit for nothing and it may not come the next time you call it.

Something along those lines.

also its just badass.

A kukri is a mix between an axe and a machete, made for slashing, chopping, and even bludgeoning and stabbing. They range anywhere from 9 inch blades being the smallest I've seen, to a whopping 28 inch blade. They're not a knife or a dagger, they're a machete.

But I think Khukuri is more correct.

Gurkha Story: (My granddad's uncle was one)

In WW2, the pilot of his plane was going to drop them in a forest to fight the enemy (I don't know the details), when the captain asked if they were ready to jump out; the Gurkha leader said "Can you fly lower so we have the trees to break our fall?"

The crazy bastards were prepared to jump out without parachutes.

The captain laughed and told them they would have parachutes.
