We have been putting off getting a gun for a while. Debating the issue. Neither of us have really ever handled a gun before. We know nothing about the
subject and are quite intimidated by it. We do plan on getting one real soon, but have been so busy with moving, starting new jobs, registering kids
in school, etc. I am afraid the SHTF scenario may go down before we get around to buying one and learning how to use it.
What are other effective ways of protecting ourselves and our belongings? Assuming a shelter in place situation. I plan on getting pepper spray and a
good survival knife. What are some other things I should consider?
Also, what if I'm caught totally off guard? What are the best makeshift weapons and methods of protection, using common household items?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
