Violence is an unfortunate fact of life. All one has to do is turn on the news and it becomes readily apparent that not all humans are kind and loving. While not everyone will face a violent altercation or home invasion in their lifetime, it’s always best to be prepared just in case.
Be it a home invasion, being caught in a violent riot or even facing a group of thugs on the street, the ability to defend yourself is crucial to avoid getting seriously hurt or killed. While a firearm is arguably the best way to defend oneself, not everyone can afford to purchase one. There are other tools that one can use to protect themselves, and some are both cheap and easy to make.
Pepper spray is a great way to fend off attackers. Simply spray them in the face and escape. Making your own pepper spray is easy and relatively cheap. The creation of homemade pepper spray starts with taking some chile powder or flakes and pouring them into a sealable container, like Tupperware. Next, pour in some isopropyl alcohol until it’s just above the pepper and leave it overnight.
The next day, you’ll see the alcohol is a reddish color. Add in some cooking oil and mix well. Using a funnel with a filter, pour the pepper mix into a spray bottle. There you have it, your very own homemade pepper spray!
A feared weapon on any battlefield is the mace (a metal club). While no one really expects massive medieval battles to erupt in this day and age, maces are still viable for self-defense in a life or death situation. While a metal baseball bat will work, you can also create a mace of your own. For an easy design, all you need is a pipe and paracord to create a grip.
Having the tools to defend yourself could very well save your life one day. If you find yourself to not be the creative type, you can always purchase the tools you need. Check out these discreet self-defense tools you should carry on you every day.
