Senior Defense tools

I have COPD and bad R/shoulder . So no longer able too engage in a fight . My main CCW gun is a Glock 23C and I have a NAA 22 mag around my neck for a bug gun . Since I need a cane most of the time to walk which make me a easy target I decided a fighting cane can't hurt . I think it is a good tool for seniors .

Fits right in down there "hook em horns".

My thought is if someone comes after you then shoot them and let God sort it out. At 69, on blood thinners, with surgeries on both knees and my strong side shoulder I'm not going mano, mano with some punk. The key is awareness. If they close and I (we) can't get away I'm not waiting for someone to throw a punch or pull a weapon.

Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

I was raised Philly most of early life and learn how to street fight in my teen years . So backing down from a fight is not in my DNA . I love this cane . It has lots of weight and is solid and won't break and no need to draw it . In my opinion it better then a small cal gun like my NAA 22 mag in stopping a bad guy and faster to respond .

A can of 20 foot jet spray Wasp/Hornet killer by your table bedside will blind someone from across the room. I promise.

I've heard of wasp spray as a weapon, it causes permanent damage. But, a blind bad guy can sue. Dead ones, not so much....

I like the old saying, "I'm too old to fight you, and too old to run, so I guess I'll just have to shoot you".

I keep wasp spray near my TV as a backup to my guns I carry in the house for years . If you spray someone in the face with it your going to get sued . If you shoot them dead , they can't testify against you or sue you . Plus that straw bends when I put my weight on it and makes a terrible cane ..

Finished the birdshead .

Not on blood thinners but do have the knee and shoulder issues. I do use a heavy cane at times but would rather not be that close to a bad guy!

I've always carry the 2 guns below . Now I have the cane which give me a 3rd weapon . I think the cane is much better weapon then the NAA 22 mag , plus it would be much more fun to beat the crap out of the bad guy with the cane then shoot them . That hook on the cane can cause serous damage to someone if used correctly .
