The Perfect Weapon: Find The Best Tool For Your Protection

Find the perfect weapon to protect yourself from violent, criminal attackers with my “real world” suggestions. Having one and training to use it effectively will vastly increase your chances of surviving an attack and making it home alive.

If you're very new to matters of self defense, it may take you a little while to get used to the idea of carrying weapons and the possibility of using them on another human being.

I know it took me quite a while and LOTS of reading before I was completely comfortable with the idea.

But that's where I can help! The articles below are all aimed at giving you the right information so that you can make an informed decision about what the perfect weapon is for YOU.

So check out the pages below and start learning about WEAPONS!

Self Defense Weapons

Self Defense Weapons are small enough to carry with you every day. Having them attached to your belt or in a pocket is the best way to be sure you'll be able to access them if you are ever attacked by a criminal.

This article will give you an introduction to the idea of carrying weapons for self defense. I will also discuss the kinds of weapons that I recommend you consider carrying.

I don't want you to waste your time and possibly risk your life by carrying useless or ineffective weapons. You don't have to have the perfect weapon, as long as you have something that WILL be effective when the time comes to use it.

Make sure you get the RIGHT knowledge to protect yourself from crime!

Non Lethal Weapons

The truth is that self defense situations that require DEADLY FORCE are quite rare. It doesn't mean that we can ignore the possibility of them or fail to prepare ourselves for them though!

You will more commonly face a situation where somebody doesn't want to KILL you, but they may very well want to hurt you or someone you care about.

In this type of situation or any situation that you know is dangerous, but not deadly, you will find having Non Lethal Weapons to be a very useful option.

These are weapons that will hurt your attacker, but won't kill him. An extremely important kind of weapon to have with you.

Home Defense Weapons: Meet That Intruder With The Perfect Weapon

Besides having self defense weapons that are carried on your body, it's also crucial to think about what you might do if someone was to break into your home while you were there.

What if you were sleeping peacefully in your bed when all of a sudden you hear a "CRASH!", followed by the sound of people shouting and running up the stairs towards your bedroom!

Having thought about and practiced with your Home Defense Weapons may be the only thing that saves your life and the lives of your family.

On this page, I talk about the pros and cons of various weapons and what you need to consider to prepare yourself for an attack on your home.

Clothing For Self Defense

Clothing for self defense

While it may seem like a bit of a strange topic to some, a huge factor in learning to comfortably and consistently carry self defense weapons every day is knowing what kind of clothing to wear.

Chances are good that you could not easily carry a weapon or several weapons (I personally carry 3 different weapons) with you every day using the clothing that you're currently wearing!

Selecting the right Clothing For Self Defense will go a long way towards improving your comfort and enabling you to carry the life saving tools you need ALL THE TIME!

Carrying Weapons: My Experiences

Carrying weapons with you every single day of the year can be a challenge!

I have been doing it for almost a decade, and along the way I have learned a lot about what it takes to do it successfully. I don't know if I'll ever find the "perfect weapon", but I've certainly enjoyed trying!

I have written down some of My Experiences Of Carrying Weapons to help give you an idea of the kinds of issues you might face if you follow the same path as I did.

I think it's all been worth it though, knowing that I always have effective tools that I can use to save my life should I ever be attacked by a violent criminal.

Legal Self Defense Weapons

Since the laws regarding self defense and especially weapons are so different in every country, I felt I had to write an article about Legal Self Defense Weapons.

The "weapons" I talk about on this page are actually common, everyday tools that can ALSO be used as weapons if needed. Since they aren't actually weapons, they should be legal in most places.

This means you're more likely to have them with you if you're ever attacked by a criminal!
