I have been thinking about hugs. while they dont really have any knock down power, the shock element alone should be enough to deter most threats. plus I will never run out of them unless my arms are ripped off. if the shtf scenario involves zombies, i will just moan, waddle and hold my arms out in a hugging motion and walk right thru them. all though I have not tested out my hug defense yet, i believe that it deserves a place in my arsenal.

A 30 large family all wielding Weapons.

Hammers
Butcher knifes
Knifes attached to poles

Basically anything that can be found. Survival requires some creativity and a simple beer bottle can become deadly. Gun's will be important

Do you use them recreationally?
Personally, I dont see the appeal to owning weapons. Yes. One should be able to protect themselves in the correct situation. I just dont feel the situation would likely arise.

Not at the start. But once food supplies run short, fresh water reasoning will not come into play. Unless you stored maybe 10000 cans of food for a large family as mine. You're gonna fight for your right. Everyone thinks they will not resort to banditry, everyone says they will just hunker down. I'm sorry to say I doubt this quite much.

Tried that, they'll just think you're lunging at them and attack you.Must be a sneak hug and at that point you may aswell Embrace your inner assassin at that point.

I'm Canadian, hence my weapons are a slingshot (with plenty of pistachios for ammo) and a Jedi Knight limited edition light saber of death and destruction.

Anything else has to be registered and thus putting you on the system... Sooo, yeah.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.


Note: Beware of canucks stocking up on empty beer bottles... it's a sooper seekrit Canadian tradition how we use them as weapons. But I can't tell you or they'd take away my membership card.

Here's a pro tip for an extra deadly beer bottle: Do not use sugar glass.

Another Canadian here, but I do have guns. Not a huge amount,I think 12 or so. Only my 2 handguns are registered.Long guns no longer need to be registered in Canada, so your good to go.

As for me,if I didn't have the weapons I have now, I'd be looking for 4 main weapons. 1)shotgun,either 12 or 20 guage.Lots of good ones out there, pick one you like.2)rifle- probably a Ruger M77 in 308,30-06 or .270.be fine with a Rem 700,WIn M70,or a Savage.3).22-make mine a Ruger 10/22,but lots of good options. 4)handgun. Again,tons of good options. .357,45acp,45 colt,40 S&W, pick one with a good track record and that you shoot well.
With those 4, I'd be all set up. I have all those bases covered,except my .22's are bolt actions. I would like to get a 10/22,and probably will next year. I do almost all my hunting with archery gear anymore though,except for predators in the winter.

Many people are under the impression that firearms,and ownership thereof,is rare or difficult in Canada. This is totally false. I've lived in Ontario and Alberta,and have friends/relatives in several other provinces,and there are a huge number of guns and gun owners in all of them. Take a 2 day safety course and get a background check done,pay your fee and your off to the gun shop!

Any large blunt object or a big truck or something.
I would say guns but guns require ammo, and I'm in the UK.
Actually I have an 18th century French bayonet that we found in my late grans attic.
And by the way OP, I counter your bow and arrow with my air powered spear gun!

I love the way you class 12 guns as "not a huge amount"

I will be using my .30-06 tomorrow morning for deer.... I hope!

If you don't think you need weapons for protection you should move into Winnipeg's north end for a week. Or, any where in Winnipeg for that matter. What a dump!
