Is there any effective weapon I could make using items near my house?
bow & arrow
You probably have one: A club. Baseball bat, length of 2x4, tire iron, hell a BRICK.
Got an Axe for felling trees? WEAPON.
Cliche, but true: Chainsaw...
Length of chain with a weight on the end - Flexible Club
A shirt with a rock tied on one side - garrote, flexible club
Piano wire or any strong, flexible wire like a guitar string: garrote
Razor knife anyone - 9/11 hijackers took over planes with these (supposedly)
ANYTHING you lay hands on is a potential weapon. Think outside the box.
A good hard wood staff with a little practice it becomes a very effective weapon. when me and my family walks I carry a 5ft one if ask I tell people it's a cane I have a bad knee.
The Terrorist's Handbook
A real bright flashlight is a good defensive weapon.
Yall can have my xwife shes as mean as they come.
That is alright. I can't handle any more pit bulls in my neighborhood.
I carry a 6', 1"-2.5" diameter bamboo staff with me at times
I carry a 6' long 1"-2.5" diameter bamboo staff with me when I go bushwalking. I have had a few people who have commented on it in passing. I tell them that among a number of things that I can use it as a tentpole, as half of a stretcher pole, or for protection against feral dogs (I just don't explicitly state them as feral dogs of the two legged variety).
The bamboo staff is also a bit of survival kit to help in crossing flowing streams, flotation device, fishing pole and any of a hundred other uses that need and imagination may put it to. The pointy end is adapted to fixing a stout bladed knife to it to create a serviceably improvised thrusting spear, and the bottom section of the hollowed out section of bambo contains a very basic survival kit in a tubular container. The spear has a hand loop of cordage to improve grip for thrusting with (or tying off a tent fly with). There are lengths of paracord wound around much of the length of the pole decoratively, partly for reinforcing strength and grip, but it but can be unwound for use for any number of alternative purposes.
I can travel in public, appropriately attired for bushwalking without raising alarm that I am carrying a potential weapon capable of deadly force.
Got three of these, tactical Torches, very bright, flash to the eyes, then use as a weapon, knowing where to hit is important, temple, under the nose, side of neck to name a few.
Also have small solid wooden handles around the house, the list is long, but make sure you practice, it's not the Strength it's knowing how to hit and where.
Have Tonfas here as well lol, from my Old Karate days
I like my flame thrower and grenades are great attention getters.
Walking sticks and canes can be effective weapons and carried without drawing attention.
I have several good walking sticks,one of which is a shepherd's crook,5' long of good ol' hickory.Another hickory stick of about the same length is heavier,but feels good in my hand.
I had a walking stick that had a .44 pistol built in to it. It belonged to my first ex-wife's Grand-Father, Col. Mac Harper. He looked like Col. Sanders and carried this stick from the Spanish-American War until he died in 1970. I really wanted to keep it but that would have meant keeping the ex-wife too and she was more than I could put up with, even for really cool gun.
The mind is the most offensive weapon that I know of. People can kill other people with just about anything from a rock to a atomic bomb !!!
Yep, Focus Training said it best:
A good solid metal ink pen remember a weapon for self-defense a weapon dont have to be larger just used properly.
True, but some things just make those things easier.
Does a nice long knitting needle slid up inside my sleeve count as a weapon, lol?
I was having a conversation with a neighbor about weapons cleaning the other day.
He asked me if I had any spare oil, since he had just run...
Thought this was really interesting because I have done a lot of what these guys are doing.
