Like any good prepper, no doubt you have a gun, or perhaps several. While guns are excellent tools, they may not always be an option. No matter how much ammo you have, eventually it will run out. And in some situations the noise of a gun could give away any tactical advantage you have. This is why it’s important to learn to make and use primitive weapons.
So, what are the best weapons for when a gun isn’t an option? Check out this article to learn about the top 15 primitive weapons.
Need a weapon to keep bandits at bay? A large stack of rocks and a place to throw from can be an effective deterrent when you and your group are threatend with danger. A good sized rock thrown at high velocity can even kill a person, if they take a direct hit to the skull; most of the time if you can land a direct hit you’ll simply knock a person down, bleeding and dazed.
The danger of bringing rocks to a fight is that you can also give your opponent the idea to use rocks — if your opponent surrounds your base camp and attacks from the darkness, you can become sitting ducks — unable to see them (due to the darkness) but they’re able to see you (due to any lights, torches, or lanterns blazing around camp). They can then rain down rocks on your camp, taking out several people.
