    I've lived my life by that creed. There is no excuse for being without options when it comes to SD. No matter where you are - in town or in the woods - whether you are armed or not, there is always something that can be a weapon. People just need to pay more attention to their surroundings. Yeah, a firearm or a blade on your person is nice, but it's not the only option. Take a walk thru WallyWorld or the local grocery, and see what's readily available - knives and other pointy sharp things are all around you. Rope. Cables and wire. Axes. Caustic chemicals. Something that is a decent blunt object. All kinds of stuff. When you go someplace look around with an eye towards what can save your butt.

    Just think what you could do with a can of beans. T-bone steak could be deadly. Stick the longest part of the bone in the perps temple.

    Got a lot things in mind.
    Like a can of Wasp Spray sitting on the floor, near the back door, for when I
    get my arse decked. Oh it's neatly hidden, conveniently placed, etc.

    I always told my two boys when they were growing up, everything can be a weapon. I'll show you what you look like on the inside with a key!
