hi, i have searched your (fantastic) blog, but did not find
I cannot buy a gun where I come from. Would you recommend
the usag of a bow or a crossbow?
I recently saw rambo 4 and was quite impressed by the
lethal effect of his bow (lol), but i do not know
whether this is only hollywood? thanks, Isolde
First, don't ever take Hollywood into account for
realistic self defense! :-)
Second, are you sure there's now ay for you to get a gun?
In many places people thing its not legal when it
actually is. Even if its just a double barrel trap
shotgun its much better than not being armed at all.
Getting a gun is one of those things certain people dont
worry much or are willing
to go through all the trouble needed to get one.
No one is going to just hadn you a gun. There's a reason
why they make it a long,boring and sometimes expensive
process: They dont want you to have it!
The average person will quit before maybe having to spend
a year in a hunting club,only then to get a hunting
license and then buy the gn. But you're better than the
average person, othewise you wouldn't be reading my blog! :-)
Now, back to your question. Both are very poor weapons
compared to firearms.
But if I didn't have anything else I'd go for a powerful
hunting crossbow. Again, PLEASE get a firearm instead if
there's any way for you to get one, no matter how much
red tape and burocracy you have to go through.
I'm saying crossbows instead of bows becuase, within their
limitations, its a point and shoot weapon in some ways
simialar to a rifle. Keep in mind that crossbows were banned
for some time in UK, precisely because they were better at
I just looked on Amazon and found a 150 Lbs Hunting Crossbow.
It comes with 8 arrows, scope and laser. I'd add a few
hunting broadheads too.
Before that, I'd get a Cold Steel machete for 25 bucks
and learn how to use it.
I bought this same model and I just
Posted about it too,and how to put
a hair shaving edge to it too.
machete/large knife and a few knife
and stick fighting
classes would be the second best thing
if you can't get a firearm.
