    we have stores that sell government issued military supplies, not sure about knives-I've never looked, I've got a couple of british bayonets but they were bought from second hand shops and from market stalls.

    most preppers in the UK stay away from firearms as such due to the licencing laws.
    there are other ways of arming ourselves which at the moment don't need licences or permission.

    yes, most of the British public are anti gun, and the licencing laws are such that just "wanting" one is not enough, we have to have a valid reason for owning one.
    which is crazy when you realise most weapon crime in the uk is either knife related or a sharpened screwdriver or similar.
