As I was reading Jeff Anderson’s blog post (below), it got me thinking about what weapon I would grab first and how that has evolved during my self-defense journey. It used to be a baseball bat or kitchen knife, then it went to my Tae Kwon Do weapons, then to my first full-size handgun, and now it could be one of a few different weapons depending on the circumstances. Our training and our weapons evolve.
Which weapon would you reach for if your home was being invaded?
- Kitchen Knife
- Baseball bat
- Closest swingable heavy object
- Carry gun
- Staged home gun
- Claymore mine (from the blog list)
- Depends on time of day/where I am in the home
- Other please comment below
There’s no shame in saying you’d grab a baseball bat - we all have different training, abilities, and ways to protect our loved ones. It’s where I started - and I still have a few around my home.
