no guns, no knives, except for some kitchen knives. i used to have a stun gun for protection when i was hiking, but got rid of that. i’d be screwed if i ever got attacked. i roll the dice i guess, that i live in a safe place. the neighbors are all armed and shoot guns when the weather is nice.
Ya not ya typical American then. With a gun in one hand and the bible in another.
I’m a Canadian but wish I had a self-defensive firearm.
haha i guess not. it was never handed down to me culturally, dad never hunted or had firearms. but he did have a bible haha.
i wouldn’t have had a stun gun either, but i was in the hospital one time and i told one of the male nurses i was going to hike part of the appalachian trail, and he suggested i bring a firearm with me, thinking it was not safe. so i got a little paranoid.
another time i was in phoenix, staying with my brother’s wife family and they were all like you need a handgun, i remember her brother said to me, “it’s the wild wild west out here”. anyways i just went home.
My dad has a 9mm in a quick open safe in his bedroom. It’s a fun little gun.
I’ve considered getting a snubnose myself but I decided against it considering the occasional suicidal thoughts.
I do have a Kentucky 50. Cal pistol kit that I need to build yet. No hurry though. More of a winter project.
Used to have a center fire .22 rifle but decided to sell it to my grandpa.
I am armed only with my wits, God help me if anything happens lol
i have a baton. bear mace. thats about it
I very rarely ever carry weapons. I have a weird metaphysical belief that they just attract negativity.
If you’re in a dangerous neighborhood just try and treat everyone with respect, don’t borrow money from anyone, don’t ask for drugs, and don’t mess with any property and you should be fine.
yeah the ole saying. ‘if you go looking for trouble you will find trouble’
And that saying is very true!
I own a fair number of bows, but they’re not used as weapons. Target shooting only.
The only weapons I have is kitchen knives. But I’m more likely to use them on myself - on my arm. Once when I was paranoid and scared my husband would hurt me after arguments I kept a knife in the room I retreated to in case I needed to defend myself. Never needed to though.
I wouldn’t trust myself with a gun. Thank goodness I can’t get one. I hate them anyway.
sometimes i think about how oblivious i am. like the freaking arms race is already over. i never even thought about owning a gun, but the gov already has tanks, missiles, a-bombs, etc. some people think about it quite a bit and get to work protecting themselves.
When I was a teenager my dad would take me and my siblings to the gun range. It was fun to shoot at targets. I remember there were sometimes rather unsavory characters hanging out at the gun range.
I have a few knives, I’ve been a low-key blade head since I was a kid when I got my first pocket knife from a cub scout magazine lol.
I doubt the low income apartments I plan on getting into would allow any.
I might practice on foam nunchuks at some point.
The flexibility exercises might be more than I wish to dedicate myself to though.
I believe people with mental disorders shouldn’t own weapons.
I would have shot myself in the head if I was in the US or somewhere where guns are legal. Its easy, guaranteed and painless!
