Rocks. Clubs. Spears. Bows and arrows. Catapults. Muskets. Pistols. Shotguns. Automatic rifles. Rocket launchers. Intercontinental missiles. Nuclear weapons. What do all of these things have in common?
They are all weapons that man has created over the centuries for the simple purpose of defense (or for hunting, with some weapons). It’s almost as if creating weapons has been just as big a priority for mankind as building shelter, foraging for food, or finding clean water.
Of course, there’s good reason why. Our natural instinct as human beings is to survive, and one of the top concerns in both our ordinary day-to-day lives and in a true life-or-death survival situation is security. Not only do we strive to protect ourselves, we will also do anything we possibly can to keep our loved ones safe and our homes and property secured as well.
Today, we take modern technology largely for granted and weapons are definitely no exception. But let me ask you something: if you found yourself in a wilderness survival or in a large scale national disaster scenario without any modern weapons, what would you do?
No guns. No knives. No machetes. No fancy crossbows or compound bows. Just your bare hands and the materials that are either in your home and/or that nature has provided for you.
In this kind of a situation, you would have to settle for weapons that are more primitive but that are still effective at hunting game and defending yourself and your family from attacks from other people with ill intentions. If these weapons worked for our ancestors hundreds of years ago, they will continue to work for you today.
A post-disaster world will be a dangerous place. Paper money may become worthless, stores and restaurants will be looted, there may be martial law by the military and law enforcement, streets will become shut down, and once ordinary people will become hungry and desperate and start raiding other people’s homes for food and supplies.
You cannot allow yourself or your family to become a victim in this scenario. You have to learn how to fight and to have the weapons to give you an advantage in a life-or-death situation. Hopefully you’ll already have tools such as guns with you, but if you don’t and need to make your own primitive weapons instead, the information in this book will undoubtedly come in handy.
In this book, we are going to cover a series of different DIY weapons that you can either make in your home or in the wilderness with a detailed step-by-step process for each one.
The specific weapons that we will cover include the following:
•Homemade Pepper Spray
•Homemade Stun Gun
•Paracord Monkey Fist
•Spear (Fire Hardened)
By the end of reading this book, you will know how to build each of these weapons and the only thing left for you to at that point will be to, well, build them!
Hopefully you never find yourself in a situation where you’ll have to use one of these weapons to defend yourself or your family. Nonetheless, the circumstances that would force you to do so are largely out of your control. You never know when disaster could strike and looters could come knocking on your door.
This is why it’s always better to be prepared, and the knowledge and ability to construct these weapons (and training yourself in the use of them) could be what saves your life and the lives of your loved ones.
