  2. Reasons why this is not realistic whatsoever

    1. No metal door will ever pop open that easily. Takes a lot of force so usually two guys.
    2. You can use a Sledge with the halligan, but it's overall impractical. Axes and halligans can be easily paired together so it saves space and fulfills the same function as with the sledge, but has more functions overall. By attaching the sledge to the halligan, you're eliminating functions of the fork and the pike. The adze end is the only thing you can use.
    3. One man can take the door by himself, but not how the slamigan depicts. You can do a sorta baseball bat swing to get the pike in the door to break the frame, or stick the adze in and hit it with the ax. Yeah that last one is like the slamigan, but the thing is that you can get right up to the door and not have to stand far away.

    Overall, the slamigan is a joke and a waste of money. Marrying an ax to the halligan saves time, money, and gives more functions to the firefighter.

    Year and a half of being a firefighter.
