Brass Nucks are a very effective weapon in hand-to-hand combat situations. They are usually utilized by corn-fed white young men, frequently to beat-down minorities and "wiggers". I have actually seen all of them used on a few occasions. One great punch is enough to end the fight...more blows just causes a bloodbath and a severely fractured skull. Most people "blasted" with brass nucks need immediate medical help (basics, stiches, rays, etc.) Numerous variations of brass nucks can be found (variations and materials) nevertheless standard model Nucks available at gun programs tend to be "old".
