I read that as "hamster stapler" for some reason and was intrigued.

Well, that depends on who is holding the pruning shears, really.

Up here we call it a hammer tacker. Hammer stapler is too complicated for us.

So a vietnam vet wielding a hammer stapler chased off a heavy-set black man wielding garden sheers?

//Best convenience mexican standoff..ever.

A hammer beats a lot of things...

The metal-capped wooden arm of pruning shears, once separated from the other arm and the blade removed, is a mighty fine self-defense tool.

When all you've got is a hammer, every thing looks like pruning shears.

No spear jokes here please-I don't want Irreverend Al in my driveway!

Never bring pruning shears to a hammer stapler fight.

Well this is at least better than the time someone tried to rob a store with a rock. Way to go Bellingham.

I can see this now, and in my mind everyone is British.

All right give me the money!
I say, of cours... is that a clock?
Yes
Why?
Well it's sort of a threat see...
No, I don't see.
Well give the money, or you'll be out of time!
Actually I'll probably close up early after I ring up the constab-
NO! I mean you'll be dead.
Are you planning to kill me with the clock?
It won't be easy for either of us.

I would think leaving the blade on would make it more effective.
