I am thinking the problem maybe definition of weapon. If I understand your objection, it sounds like you feel responses should be limited to what firearm do you prefer.
Here is a example of broad interpretation of weapon from Wikipedia
"weapons may be construed to include anything used to gain a strategic, material or mental advantage over an adversary on land, sea, air, or even outer space."
I don't know if my original post on this thread comes under the classification of what you are objecting to. However my point was and still is that sharing or advertising whatever you are using for defense, on this forum or in the local bar, is very counter productive to its effectiveness.
