Bat. I can start it a lot faster than my chainsaw.

Baseball bat would be closer to what I was trained to use (1.25 dia. 26' long bamboo). personally, I'd rather just have a cut off broom handle.

Baseball bat has a much more useful center of gravity, a great bonkin' tool.

I'd go more for a light saber . . . OTOH the chain saw makes a lot of noise and looks more scary.

Does the chain saw come with a hockey mask?

I'll take the chainsaw. Even a glancing blow is going to do damage. A person's will to stay in a fight drops pretty dramatically when they start bleeding all over the place or get a limb cut off.

I've found a bat works better than a chain saw. Too much blood to clean up with the later. No open wounds with 'ole hickory.

Baseball bat.....its a lot easier to wield because your oponent most certainly won't be standing still. And you could take out a chainsaw pretty easily with a strike to the chain bar on either side with the bat.

Rock, paper, scissors.

What weapon does the opponent have? One thing is for sure, I wouldn't want one of those chainsaws with an extension cord.

How many allies and opponents? I could cut clubs with a chainsaw.
