Are you interested in collecting swords? Do you like the way they look when they are hanging on your wall? If you answered yes to these questions, you will need to find a good place to buy your swords. Of course, this is much easier said that done. All of the stores that specialize in swords are not created equal. This basically means that you will need to do some investigating in order to find out which sword store is the best for the items you are looking for. Here is how you can go about finding a place to buy a sword or other self defense weapons.
1. Ask your friends
One of the best sources for recommendations on just about anything is very easy for you to access. By simply asking your friends if they have ever bought swords from a dealer they can recommend to you, a lot of time can be saved. If any of your friends are also sword collectors, find out where they buy their swords from. Ask them if they are happy with the quality of swords and the prices they are paying. If they give you a positive recommendation, make a note of the store name so you can check it out later.
2. Check online
If you strike out when it comes to your friends giving you recommendations, you can always go online to see if you can find any reputable sword stores. The Internet opens you up to many sword stores that are only online. If you do not mind buying your swords through the mail, this can be a great way to find very obscure items that are simply not available in your local area. However, before you purchase anything from an online swords store, make sure you are able to return any purchase you make if you are not satisfied with it.
3. Online reviews
Aside from doing your own searches online, you can also check out some of the many online review sites that exist to allow people the ability to review various businesses that they have done business with. You can check to see if any of the users have written any reviews of swords stores. If you find some of these reviews, read them to see if they give you any insight into a store that you might want to consider using in the future.
Brigid has some sound advice.
Look around you, if you come face to face with a criminal in your home and you don’t have a firearm within immediate reach, what would you use to defend yourself? (If you think electrical cord to choke your attacker, you have watched way too many movies with Matt Damon in them). Spontaneous attacks in your home could vary from open hand, firearms, impact or edged weapons. You’d better have the same things around you to fight back.

A Newark, New Jersey deli owner who shot and killed an armed man will not face charges, police and prosecutors say.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray as well as Newark Police Director Eugene Venable say that the owner of the deli had a permit for the gun that he used to defend himself.
New Jersey is notorious for having some of the strictest gun regulations in the nation. The robber apparently thought that meant there was no legal way for his would-be victims to arm themselves.
According to Guns.buzz, Mark Robinson’s last words inside the New Neighborhood Deli Supermarket were “I thought you couldn’t own a gun in New Jersey.”
Robinson, 46, had walked into the deli around 8:30 p.m. and immediately pointed a gun at the owner, who didn’t hesitate to pull his own weapon and fire. Robinson was pronounced dead at around 10 pm.
In the wake of the December 15 hostage situation in which an armed man held unarmed Australians at gunpoint for hours, former Sydney Deputy Mayor Nick Adams is calling for a gun ban to be lifted so Australians can defend themselves.
Adams said he believes if there was ever a time Australians wanted to have a gun, it was December 15.
He told Fox News that he thinks gun laws will soon be revisited–that “Australians are now beginning to realize what it is for the bad guys to have guns and for the good people not to.” He said a lot of Australians woke up when the crisis was over and thought about how different things “could have been if someone did have a gun on them to stop this terrible, awful ordeal.”
“Why should we give advantage to the bad guys, whether they’re criminals … [or] they’re terrorists?” he asked.
Adams said the hostage situation helped Australians realize that gun control is “enabling the bad people to carry out their agenda a lot more easily, a lot more freely than they may otherwise have.”
