3 Self-Defense Tips That Could Save Your Life When You Can’t Get To Your Gun

Many preppers think about what to do after the stuff hits the fan. They think about and plan for where to bug out to, what to take, meal preparation and sources of safe, clean water and sanitation. They even think about having weapons and ammunition handy to protect themselves and their family.

But many preppers don’t take the time to think about what they might have to do if they can’t get to their weapon. How would they defend themselves?

Here are three tips to remember should you find yourself in a self-defense situation without access to your weapon:

1. Prevention. Yes, this is a before the fact issue, but if you can be aware of your surroundings and prevent being in a vulnerable situation, then you’ve avoided the worst case scenario from the get go.

2. Yell and push. Why? Because you want to draw attention to the situation, possibly startle your attacker, and make them nervous about continuing the attack.  Remember, confrontation is a mental game before a physical altercation.

3. Know and use targets. Know the weak points of the body, so that you if you have to attack, you can impact areas in a way that your size (or lack of size) won’t be an issue. A hit to the groin, an eye gouge, a punch to the windpipe. None of these take a lot of strength to inflict damage that will stop anyone and prevent them from functioning. (Note: these are generally to only be used if you feel your life is absolutely in danger because the damage you could inflict could kill someone. Some targets are last ditch only.) Some great info on targeting is available here.

The point is to be prepared in every way that you need for all possible situations.

  • “Some targets are last ditch only” – hmm – seems to me that if the schumer has hit the fan, a person will and must use whatever techniques available to them to insure their survival and ability to return and protect their loved ones. IOW, whatever works and whatever it takes, unless ya want the bad guys to prevail…………….

  • This is utter crap, “some targets are last ditch only”. If you listen to this, you will die. If it’s you and the bad guy, who would you rather win? If you hesitate, slow down, or think… he will win. You need to stop him as quickly as possible. Has the author never heard of the “21 foot” rule? Crush his trachea or testicles as fast and hard as possible, as many times as you can before he realizes it and you may survive. Be come more dangerous to him than he is to you. Counter attack with severe prejudice… If you behave prey-like, a predator WILL notice… Stop the threat as quickly as possible….

  • This is a load, from someone selling their writing. I taught my daughters to never turn away to run… grab the attacker and pull him in as close as possible and get crazy vicious, with the teeth… start ripping flesh, hanging on and gnawing a hole through the SOB. You put enough pain, as quickly as humanly possible, on anyone and they will only want to get away from you. Get busy, Hard & Fast! Turn the predator into someone, that just wants to escape! When you bury up in his chest, his punching power is compromised and his pain is your best ally. Stay engaged, as long as possible and make it as painful as possible, for the attacker.
