    Mayan stone tipped spears were no match for the light ballistic steel armor of the Conquistadors.

    I recently watched some atlatl videos and saw a test against armor. Several expert throwers tried different stone points and a small dent was the best they could do.
    I fancy myself a weapons expert. 😞

    Ok, weapons expert, answer me this:

    Are these atlatls a real weapon, or just a weapon delivery system?

    I guess they could be a weapon if you consider the spears they throw as "ammo".

    An atlatl is a tool that uses mechanical advantage.

    So is a gun. Or a bow.

    So is it a weapon (the spears are just ammo), or a weapon delivery system (the spears are the weapon)?
