I prefer to refer to my guns & blades as tools rather than weapons, but of course they serve equally well for defence as they do for hunting.
I prefer 18th century equipment because it is robust, practicle & sustainable. I do own modern firearms, but for long term survival I depend on my 18th century tools.

Thank you Prime, I like them. They feel good in the hand & are what I am most familiar with.
Regards, Keith.
