DIY Homemade Weapons Tutorials

Any prepper or survivalist will tell you that the importance of having weapons can’t be stressed enough. It’s ingrained in each one of us; we must have one or a few (or a dozen) or else. When things get really ugly, we’re left to fend for ourselves. What would you do when there is no gun or ammo around?

Although the chances of guns being banned in the future are remote to say the least, there might come a time when you have no firearms at home or you are trapped somewhere else when SHTF.

The good thing about DIY weapons is that you can always improve them to make them better or more effective. Knowing how to use DIY weapons is also important. Take the time to learn the techniques. This will make the weapon safer and more useful.
