well said, even if that can across a little snarky


preferably something that is simple and effective within your abilities and attributes, are you fast, slow, little, big

probably nothing that has fire or a flame, not a good idea to set the place your defending yourself in on fire

preferably some thing that can not be take away from you easily and used on yourself

"simple stupid" is usually the best way to go, what I mean by that is simple and with the least amount of though (not dumb ideas) to be affective

as far as examples, think old world style items like broom sticks or rope/wires

really your brain is your best weapon

as clint eastwood will tell you -" theres nothing like a good piece of hickory"
we should remember we dont want to get a weapons charge ..
what you carry should- ideally- be explainable..
i have two heavy ludwig drum sticks. i'm on my way to practise
they clip together, nice sort of num-chucks..
take a tin can lid and fold it ,now you have a double edge slicer.
if i run it cross your forehead ,you will be blinded by the blood.

pencil.

my mate told me that one, apparently its a key point in a film of some sort. i'm going to go ahead and say "everything is a weapon" because people don't think about it when they get a lion jumping at them, they think "omg I wish I had a shotgun"

ed: thanks to the more than vague laws regarding self defence in this country however, I would actually recommend learn forms of -defensive- martial arts, the ones that move -them- from yourself and can potentially break their own arm with their strength. ie not karate. I can personally say karate is useless in any CQC situation unless you are jackie chan, and im fairly sure what he does is not karate.

Defending your own home? A gun of any type.

When you're out on the town, you can't really carry around a baseball bat or a katana as some have recommended, so you need something smaller and concealable. A knife, brass knucks, heck even a nice heavy rock would do. Somebody in another thread recommended a collapsible baton.

But your best defense of course is your wits. Try to keep a cool head at all times and avoid potential threats and dangerous situations, unless you are given no choice.

May I ask why you feel you might be attacked?

Quarter staves are the best home weapon. Long range spear, close range bat, take your pick.
Lovely,

A baseball bat for the home. A big leather belt and buckle for the town. You probably own both of these already.

One of my friends had an employee steal his dump-truck. He went to the guys house and beat him nearly to death with a serpentine belt from one of his vehicles. He was charged with a misdemeanor because the rubber belt was not considered a deadly weapon due to it's flexibility. If your area does not allow the use of a deadly weapon to protect your home, something like this might work. Setting someone on fire, or burning them with chemicals is not gonna be in your best interests in the long run. Rigid items such as baseball bats or cast-iron pipe are considered deadly weapons in most areas.

I wear a large, cheap heavy watch on a stainless steel band. The watch weighs over a pound and if I needed to I could smack someone good with it...

Thanks for the organophosphate nerve agent post.

Binds up choline, if I remember correctly, preventing any synaptic action between nerves.

brass knuckles (spiked)


Totally irresponsible and a felony to boot. Irresponsible because without proper training you are going to break your wrist trying to land full power blows with brass knucks.

All of the weapons that you have mentioned are considered an ''aggressors weapon'' by the police and they will come down harder on you than they would even if you had had a gun.

This is precisely why the OP needs to look elsewhere for education.
