    One may currently be out of luck in England; however, as the government collapses, hopefully Liberty will be returned to the decent people and one can then use that which was "salted back" against invaders.

    https://www.bsdgb.co.uk/index.php?Information:Law_Relating_to_Self_Defence

    "Self-defence weapons."

    "The law does not recognise the concept of a 'defensive weapon'. You are not permitted to carry an offensive weapon - even to defend yourself. You may, however, provided it constitutes reasonable force, defend yourself with an ordinary everyday object, such as keys, an umbrella or a comb, provided you have them with you for their ordinary everyday purpose"

    ============================

    If all you have is a knife ...

    Demonic situation in Amerika, specifically communist New York, New York:

    https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/crime-tipping-point-nyc-bodega-case-crackdown-criminals

    "Has America had enough of violent career criminals and the district attorneys who protect them? Growing public outrage over New York City’s 'bodega case' may mean a tipping point over the lenient treatment of criminals and failure to protect the public is coming – or is already here.   

    "The facts of that case as they’ve been reported: After an argument between 61-year-old bodega worker Jose Alba and a woman customer, the woman’s boyfriend, Austin Simon, entered the bodega and attacked Alba behind the counter. During the struggle, Alba grabbed a knife and stabbed Simon. At some point Simon’s girlfriend also joined the fight, stabbing Alba several times in the arm. Simon died of his wounds. Alba was arrested by police and charged with intentional murder by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

    "That the incident, and Alba’s apparent efforts at self-defense, were caught on video fueled instantaneous outrage over the arrest – which only grew as new facts emerged. 

    "For one, Alba is by all accounts a longtime pillar of his community, a mild-mannered Dominican immigrant with no criminal record who works long hours. Simon, a 35-year-old violent career criminal with numerous felony arrests, was out on parole for assaulting a police officer.   

    "Then there is Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s treatment of Alba. Charged with second-degree murder, the highest murder count available (first-degree murder is reserved for rare cases like killing a cop or a witness), Alba was sent to New York’s notorious Rikers Island jail after the DA requested $500,000 bail (which the judge knocked down to $250,000). Meanwhile, Simon’s girlfriend, who told Alba, 'I’m gonna bring my n----- down here and he gonna f--- you up,' faces no charges, and Alba’s untreated stab wounds became infected at Rikers.   

    "All this comes as fears grow that crime in major American cities is simply out of control, and residents have had enough. In San Francisco, DA Chesa Boudin was just recalled by referendum in that heavily Democratic city. In Los Angeles, over 700,000 signatures were just submitted for a referendum to recall DA George Gascon (567,000 are needed to trigger it). In Philadelphia, an effort to impeach DA Larry Krasner is underway.

    "In Manhattan, Bragg entered office this year by issuing a notorious 'reform' memo that instructed prosecutors to avoid jail time for all but the most serious crimes – all while crime was significantly up in New York over the prior year in nearly every major category (index crimes are up another 38% so far this year). 

    "What all these prosecutors share is a view of their mission as less law enforcement and more sociological tinkering, and all had their election campaigns funded by George Soros (Bragg’s to the tune of a reported $1 million)."

    I like improvised weapons. When the last bullet has been fired I will be well prepared to go to plan B and then maybe even plan C. A bow is only a good survival tool if you know how to make arrows. I've done it and it is hard to get it straight if you make it out of neatural sources. If you have cane available it would be easier but there isn't any near me. I have thought about planting some but it can be hell on plumbing.

    Here's some videos on Native American techniques for making bows and arrows:

    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=native+americans+making+straight+arrows

    In one video, the man picks-out straight limbs out of a stand of trees.



    I once asked a older Cherokee fellow how the arrow shafts were made straight and he said and used his hands in the air that they rolled the shafts on flat surfaces to make them true.

    I guess maybe that one would start with a lightly wet shaft to make it true, then dry it using some mechanism that would force it to dry straight. One could mill a straight divot into metal or stone for this.

    One could buy-up fletchings and arrow heads.

    Here is a short video on a plant based improvised weapon. Enjoy.

      It's my man Joerg! Bald, wide shoulders, gut ... we could be kin! My dad's side were German iron-miners. I'm 215 lb 5'10' (?), but my gut isn't quite his size (if I keep eating like I do, I will be his girth). My youngest son is taller than Joerg ... but now bald and has the very wide shoulders. Son's got a grip like a pneumatic press. I love his Joerg's laugh and sense of humor -- as do my sons. His creativity and ability to improvise, I so envy. I'm God's own jerry-rigger, but Joerg is The Man when it comes to making dangerous things go FAST.

      Look how thick Joerg's arms are! Mine aren't that big. Does he need weapons?! Joerg IS a weapon. Germans are great. Shame they're so OCD. It's in me.

    The Air Force used to use thorn bushes on perimeters -- mean thorn bushes. We used them in the Forestry Service. I bet the U.S. government just bought hundreds of tons of these seeds for whatever agency needed them. We used to get the seeds in 100 lb burlap bags. We'd dig-up motorcycle trails and plant the thorn bush seeds. Forestry loathes motorcycles. They cause massive erosion into streams and kill the ability of trout to spawn. We felled trees and made stream structures (dams) to make tiny "lakes" 3 or 4 ft deep (one meter). This was for trout to lay their eggs.

    Plus these agave spears do not show-up on metal detectors!

    I LOVE agave ... to drink. Love mezcal! Love its smokeyness. Just like I love Islay Scotch. Smokey!

    And mezcal production is not unlike moonshine production. Poor folk getting by. I totally understand this thing. When you're not going to inherit anything, then you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Joerg's dangerous agave is harvested in Mexico by mezcaleros. These men are beyond hardy. They harvest hundreds of pounds of agave EVERY DAY. They are skilled! Their cutting tools are VERY sharp. My heart goes out to them. I do not mind paying the price to purchase such a hard-won product. These men are, one and all, better men man than I. Their work ethic humbles me. When I drink mezcal, I always salute them and ask God to bless them and their families.

    These men are using machetes. There is another tool used, but I do not know its name. Oh by the way. Machetes and other brush-cutting tools can be used as very effective defensive weapons. Sharpen them up and you can take-off an attacker's forearm. Make aggressors bleed like a fire-hose!





    Here's another video:

      Here is the tool. Note that these puppies are razor sharp so that they can be used all day and be resharpened at night. "Danger, Will Robinson!" They can be used as an improvised weapon ... for sure! Think of it as a round spear. You can lop-off an intruder's hand when he's trying to break into your home (I've got a story; too long; so can a shotgun).

    Improvised spears using an existing knife blade, by using the metal of a lawnmower blade (as a start for a spear blade), or leaf spring ... whatever. If the metal is too hard to work, then move-on to another steel plate, or re-temper the steel you have.

    One's archery tackle should have a spear friend ... or five (or ten). Archery plus spears have worked for millenia -- still does. Here in the States, crossbows almost always come with scopes. Scopes? At short distances, who needs a scope?!!! I think they add the scopes to drive the prices up to $1,000 or more. Homey doesn't play that game.







    If natives living in nowhere can make metal-tipped spears, gosh I sure hope you can also.



    Match head gunpowder



    I hate this braggart. Fast-forward into this video a minute's worth. It's then when he shows you how to use a hex-nut and paracord to make a slinging/flailing nasty-thingy.
