    What Are Your Personal Defence Weapons/tools

    What are your personal defence weapons? This is NOT what you would like to have or prefer to have, this means what have you got right now put by for a TEOTWAWKI should it ever happen. I have been giving some thought as to what we could be up against. Most of the guns out there are probably in...

    Some Of My Weapons/tools.
