    Quick Defend Yourself!

    If you were attacked right now what do you have within arms reach to defend yourself?
    I have A super heavy laser printer,a utility knife,a huge coffee cup full of hot coffee,and a metal ashtray.
    I have plenty of guns and knives but not within arms reach.

    I have dogs and motion detectors hooked to light sources to let me know I need to access a firearm.

    Right now? A full-sized 9mm M&P with 18 rounds in it, and two extra 17-round mags.

    This second. An LCR, LCP, pepper spray. I actually have a couple other guns around me but they're unloaded due to cleaning. Two long guns loaded but on the other side of the room.

    I think I'll be fine.

    Sig Sauer P250C 9mm loaded with 16 rounds of Speer Gold Dot 124gr JHPs. Right next to it is a fully loaded Kahr PM9 (6+1) and Glock 26 (11+1).

    I have a loaded .357 magnum within 10 feet but that wasn't the spirit of the thread it was meant to be more ridiculous than anything else.

    Gas . . . lots of it. If I have to go, I'm taking every air-breathing life form with me.

    A S&W 642 in the front pocket of my cargo shorts, an extra 5 rounds in a strip in the little left hand pocket, a Spyderco Endura in my right hand rear pocket. An since I have security doors both front and back, what I have on me should give me enough time to fight my way to the 12 gauge Remington under the bed and the .45 Kimber in the nightstand. And when it isn't hot weather, the 642 is in the nightstand and the Kimber is holstered on my belt or in a shoulder holster, along with a couple of spare mags.
