Some thoughts on the subject of cheap defense:
1000 3/8" steel balls can be had for about $125 on ebay ($60 for 1/4") and a good barnett slingshot can be had for under $30. I suggest one for
each of your family members; 5 slingshots a blazing from the bush with 3/8 steel balls would make quite a silent ambush.
Where I live people are developing "tree phobia" following the last few storm seasons and many old growth trees have been cut down. I have let a
few of the logging crews know that they can dump 3'-5' diameter logs on my land. No bullets penetrate a 11' long x 4' diameter log and 3 people
could hold up behind it in a stand off.
If you live in the city, keep fuel necessary to escape to a friends pad in the sticks.
My small block home has hay bails holding 3' of dirt around it. Bullet proof walls.
A youth compound bow with a draw weight of 40-50 is usable by just about any small female or young male and will take down game. I am personally fond
of the Browning Micro Adrenaline. The low draw weight allows for rapid load and fire for full grown men and with 250+ FPS there is still plenty of
knock down power.
Go for a bike ride. Get to know your neighborhood. Pretend like situation X was there. Where would you hide/snipe from?
Axle grease is nice stuff to have on hand and can be used to stick explosives to tank tracks. It is also highly flamable when brought to
Crude napalm can be made from soap flakes, petro, and styrofoam peanuts. Be careful. Consider a 3 man slingshot (water balloon launcher).
Some pretty nasty biological agents can be made from fermented human feces or raw meat. Do some googling on that, and again be careful.
Grind the plastic handle off of your wife's best chef knife and tie to the end of it to a 6' hardwood sapling. Excellent makeshift spear.
Remember the movie "home alone"? Consider your situation and think leathal, not funny. What type of traps could you have waiting right now... just
in case? A faux structural 8x8 beam that swings past your front door when triggered from the other side, etc.
I keep a sharp estwing carpenters hatchet hanging beside my front door and a 10" utility knife accessable from the toilet. In my living room there
is a 6' prybar leaning in the corner. Where I sleep there is a louisville slugger next to my bed, with an open boxcutter always on my night table.
The world is at war and there are crackheads out on the street.
I have three rental properties and keep a razor sharp shovel at each, very accessable from the front yard.
I have a cheap WWII Jap officers katana, that sure as poo would hurt... but I'm looking into a better more expensive one.
Keep carabiners and every gauge of rope and chain a man could need to rig traps.
If you are blue collar, consider the tools you use daily and the skills you've developed with those tools. Being a carpenter, sharp chisels make
excellent throwing knives and hammers are good a beating more than nails.
If you run into someone regularly and think to yourself..." if there is a fight that dude needs to be on my side"... become known to them and earn
If you can find and store small quantities of dynamite/explosives now, do so, because you will not find it later. Model rocket electronic detonators
are an excellent available way to remotely set off explosives.
Fishing line make excellent trip line and could potentially kill if strung in front of oncoming motor bikes.
