Did I not say the ever-popular tire iron? If you've ever held a tire iron, you know that one blow is all it would take. I think it might be a good idea to have one handy on those unfamiliar dark roads, what do you think?

The tire iron - a defensive weapon or one that could be turned on you?

  1. Oh my gosh the killing of the 90 year old man is just the worst. Who on earth could beat a 90 year old to death??

  2. With my luck, the attacker would wrest the tire iron from me before I did anything.

  3. I think it's worth remembering that no matter how simple or technical a 'weapon' is, there is always a chance that an assailant may take it and use it against you.
    My first thought is the tyre iron, or at home in a kitchen - any knife.
    To take it to the extreme I'll explain something about my time in Northern Ireland in the early 1970's.
    We carried our rifles loaded with live rounds in the magazine. To avoid having the weapon 'taken' during a riot or suchlike we had the weapon sling attached from the butt to our wrist. Why?
    If the sling was attached at the stock or front end of the weapon, another person could take control of the weapon and turn it on it's owner.
    If no retaining sling was used, the entire weapon could be taken and used against the owner and anybody else.

  4. This is one I used as a weapon of self defense in a manuscript I hope to get revised for submission one of these days. Haven't killed anyone with it....yet.
