They have banned guns in the UK so they are impossible to get hold of.
So any ideas for self defense?
I have a machete that has undergone some sharpening if things get really close but I'd rather have something improvised that will fend off attachers at a distance.
Slingshots with ball bearings were one thought as were nail guns that run off batteries (staring a compressor in a hurray is not an option).
House is as secure as I can get it short of boarding up the windows - I have extra locks and the rear of the propety has 6mm laminated glass fitted.

If this is true, how are your criminals getting them?

My advice: move to a country that is pro freedom. The UK is little more than an Orwellian 1984-esque nightmare. A camera on every corner, a citizen... oops, I mean subjects (Citizens are armed and free, subjects are not. People in the UK are subjects) can be arrested without probable cause and held for weeks. They're talking about banning all sharp knives (including your machete), and violent crime, including with firearms, is at cataclysmic levels. Please, just move. You'll be better off out from under that insane government, and you'll be able to protect yourself.

check out arrow shooting slingshot, www.oddwing.com. if your any kind of builder get a roll of surgical tubing and make your own sling powered (fishing) spear gun. when needed remove fishing points, replace with razor broad heads. make as many as you need and all homemade except for the tubing. happy hunting.

A bow and arrow doesn't sound very deadly to me and the odds of missing are better than the odds hitting. I plan to raid the local police precinct after about a week of no noises or cars. In a best case scenario, there will be a lot of dead cops with weapons and car keys. In a worst case scenario, nothing. A midcase scenario, which is most likely, some cops dead on the floor. Remember, don't get into the back seat of the cop car for any reason, they're designed without handles on the inside and lock automatically. You'll die in there.

the sling, throwing spear, blowgun, bow and arrow etc. worked just fine since the dawn of history. i believe this was a non firearm situation. with every trip out, your last words may be, **** WEV'E WALKED INTO AN AMBUSH . are you a gambling man? it happens to the best of us.

    Here's a better idea - clubbing weapons like a baseball bat, tire iron, hammer, socket wrench, stabbing implements like a kitchen knife or sharpened screwdriver. They're a lot more obtainable, never having seen a blowgun on sale in my life. I plan to get my guns from dead cops. Boondocker thought this was a bit gruesome and called me a snake in the grass, but I'm a survivalist and my work in health care has hardened me. After the first three days the stench of death won't bother me at all.

Where is boondocker these days, I saw a post on a conspiracy website from a boondock

I'm not into dead bodies. Cops simply have the best guns and the best self-defense supplies. I can and will raid a police station for survival.

Guest,a baseball bat,a crow bar with a long handle,and/or a hammer will all work.Or even a hand made long club/staff,made out of good solid would. These are basically the same weapons that have been used for centuries,they just called them different names and they worked.Another thing that you need to do is to start a movement in the U.K. to legalize guns again. I would have all four.Johnray1

ROFL!

I swear when I read this I just glanced at it and saw, "Get a MULLET!" Nothing like a Mullet to keep evil at bay! It worked for McGuyver and Dog the Bounty Hunter, why can't it work for you?

search, potato spud guns. modify it with your own rapid fire fuel injection system. can fire as fast as you can stuff the muzzle. a spud for a wad, then charge with nails, glass, pieces of chain, etc. top off with another spud. safety first, test out your "proof loads" with it tied to a tire. during w.w.2 in the philippines the local natives made their own slam-fire water pipe shotguns to use on the occupying japs. used it to get a real gun, then passed it on to the next guy. SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND. oh, and of course the above was for informational purpose's only.

I hope this helped Lone Wolf.
 
 

Thanks - Bit of bank holiday reading as the weather is too shocking to do anything else!

Weapons don't have to be crazy like bows and arrows.  You could take a broom handle and use it as a bo stick, but metal implements are the best.  Metal baseball bats, etc.
 
 You can get rifles at Fred Meyers in the sports department. 
 
 Who thinks the cars will be all jammed up?  That means no cars or transportation.
