Fred Tyrell at Survivopedia listed out five different types of weapons – none of them firing bullets, that one can carry for defense. He considers these “cold” weapons. Makes sense – not fire or explosive power. But the defensive effect is much the same, perhaps minus the range.

 

Look through the kinds and all of Fred’s many examples. Here’s a little briefing:

Think of these as backups for or alternatives to guns. Just about anything can be used as a weapon. Here are five of the primary kinds of non-gun fighting tools:

 

Blades

 

“These weapons are very common, and have been used throughout history for hunting or combat. They are the best to use for cutting, hacking, slashing, or stabbing in close combat. While some edged weapons focus on sharpened edges, others also have points that are used for thrusting rather than slashing.”

 

There are as many kinds of knives as there are guns, probably many more. They’re well tested by history.

 

Fred has some better options for traditional knives. He also gets into non-traditional bladed weapons: glass shanks, stone blades, plastic blades, prison specials, etc.

 

Blunt Trauma Weapons

 

These may be the oldest of all weapons; cavemen used rocks and clubs in addition to fists, elbows, and feet. Again, just about any heavier object can qualify as a trauma weapon.

 

Some more common choices include: baseball bats; large flashlights; tire tools; the Monkey’s Fist (see today’s video feature); and more.

 

Throwing Weapons

 

These include things you actually throw (spears, etc.) and devices designed to throw or sling other objects (bows). Cosider:

 

Slings (like David;

 

Sling Shots;

 

Bolas;

 

The world or archery.

 

Farm and Hand Tools

 

These may fall into any of the above categories. Oddly, many folks don’t consider many of these better weapons as weapons at all. You should. Think about the force and effectiveness of:

 

Sickles;

 

Axes;

 

Machetes;

 

Shovels; and

 

Many other common tools.

 

Smaller, More “Innocent” Objects

 

Again, just about anything can be weaponized in a pinch. You can deploy, if martially necessary: pencils; belts; keys; aerosol sprays; and many more household, everyday items.

 

The sky really is the limit here. Use your head (a weapon all its own) and use the items you happen to have on hand.

He is also a champion marksman (rifle, pistol, shotgun) and has direct experience with all of the major gun brands and their clones. Fred refers to himself as a “southern gentleman” – the last of a dying way. He believes a man’s word is his bond, and looks forward to teaching others what he has learned over the years.

Lack of an AR or pistol does not mean you are defenseless. 1,000s of options abound. Consider them. A plus to many of these mentioned types is that so many are not considered weapons at all. Not even the craziest liberal wants to ban shovels, ink pens, or belts.

 

Get creative and stay safe.
