A New Kind of Medicine
If you are not interested in self-defense, then consider the implications of armed conflict. Some weapons can be used for defensive purposes or offensively against an intruder with great ease and swiftness.
After recent events that have had me reconsidering my weapon choices to protect myself from any uninvited menace, I realized there is a difference between tools necessary for defense versus those needed as part of offensive warfare strategies on foreign soil or domestic battlefields.
These are the weapons that could be used to protect you in a post-apocalyptic world. What would it take for someone like me, living on my own with no military training or weaponry experience to defend myself? The government has an answer; they intend to arm us against these tools of destruction by investing money into research and development. You will need any one of these 10 items listed below but each have their pros and cons:
When someone starts panicking, it’s important to remember that there are a number of ways people can defend themselves against the zombie hoard. The first line of defense should be firearms – rifles and handguns in particular. You’ll also want plenty of shotguns on hand (or your preferred close-range weapon). Keep all these weapons within reach at ALL times so you’re not caught off guard when they come knocking at your door!
Tactical weapons are not one-size fits all. It is important to choose the weapon that best suits your environment, skill level and personal needs. For example: if you live in a dense urban area with short ranges then an automatic rifle would be more appropriate than for someone living out on a farm who has long range targets they need protection from such as wild animals or coyotes coming up into their yard at night time when it’s dark outside.
Tactical choices should always come down to what works for individual users based off of certain variables like where they reside, how skilled/experienced they are in use firearms and which type firearm will work better in close quarters versus longer distances (e.g., rifles).
A knife fight is no laughing matter, but it’s not always best to bring a loaded 1911 Kimber. You should be prepared with other tools at the ready just in case you can’t get your hands on one of these deadly weapons.
A knife is a good tool to have on hand, but what if we find ourselves in a situation where we need self defense? You can train with them and keep one close by.
Knives are one of the most common weapons for self defense. Although they may not draw as much attention like a firearm, it is still reasonable to add these to your kit. One character on the show Doomsday Preppers believes that his theoretical “circle of seven” tools should include samurai type sword or other long blade with a handle at least 12 inches in length and 40-50 cm circumference. There are many such blades on the market made by companies like Cold Steel, Gerber, and more! Even hardware stores and farm supply outlets will have a variety top quality knives available that were designed specifically for brush cutting tasks among others
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Even if you’re not at risk of being attacked, it pays off in the long run if there is ever an impromptu weapon lying around nearby and you know how to use them! You never know what kind of situation might arise when blunt force instruments are your only hope for self-defense – they can’t hurt a bad guy any more or less than a gun, but guns have one big downside: getting shot usually doesn’t kill someone immediately like hitting with something else typically would. Think about that before making rash decisions on whether or not firearms should be allowed where people work everyday; even without using weapons as efficient as those found in today’s military arsenals we all need another option besides
The protagonist in the zombie movie I watched recently used a sledgehammer to protect themselves from their attackers. That’s when it hit me that this heavy tool could actually be an effective weapon of choice for self-defense, not just Hollywood style movies and TV shows. A strike to the throat or knee cap is likely enough to stop any kind of attacker before they even have time to react with more than just brute force; which makes sense because these are fragile parts on your body as well as high risk zones where you can cause serious damage very quickly if someone were able choose them strategically by surprise.
Making the world a safer place one beat at a time.
Now I own a mega sledge and I would be the first to admit that it’s just not easy carrying around. That being said, there are many ways this tool can come in handy for protection from an outside force or intruders at camp. First of all, if you strap your hammer into the carry rack on top of ATV then you’re good to go! Secondly, as we age our bodies don’t work like they did when we were younger so swinging my giant metal mallet 10 times is equivalent with doing 20 pushups – which isn’t bad for someone who doesn’t exercise much because one day might be enough motivation get back out there again! The point here is that any tools should have plans about how they will function
If we are preparing for the worst, it’s important to always be prepared. What types of tools can you find in your house? Consider a shovel or rake if there is no one around (or even farm animals) that might hurt you when they attack!
Your prepping strategy does not have to be strictly firearms, and in reality you should make sure that you are well-equipped with many other tools for self defense. You can always include a firearm at the ready if necessary, but there are plenty of options out there as well!
