It was bound to happen...

Salsa (is that your real name, or do you own a Mexican restaurant?),
Your apology is also accepted. Ignorance is, at times, about the only excuse left.
Traditionalists have been using the forked stick for years, with great success. Voluntarily limiting one's self to primitive means not only makes for some great stories, it gives the individual the capability of putting everyone to utter shame around the campfire, regaling them with tales of close calls in tight quarters. I shouldn't have to mention to a person of your expertise in these matters, that the selection of the fork in question should be limited to fire-hardened birch, which has been cured in a mixture of potash, spruce resin and porcupine brains for twelve days. As you know, the fork is then tightly-bound with rawhide strips made from green shrew pelts. This keeps the fork from splitting and gives the entire weapon phenomenal strength. Simply put, this is no ordinary fork.
Firearms are of course another matter, and as you know, I've always been an advocate of Robert Ruark's philosophy, "Use Enough Gun" (I thought I'd name-drop a little there so you'd think I'm really special).
