Get a proper pistol. Yes an air pistol might be easer... but do you want to make some one angrier or take down a threat.
Go through the red tape.. pay the price and have a reliable weapon.



I think that a good I idea. I really badly need it for my self defense. I will try to use pepper spray or expandable batons.

Use an expandable baton effectively only if you are prepared to use it and have practiced the best technique.

If you want a handgun apply for NPB Pistol/Revolver license. If you want a long gun apply for NPB Shotgun/Rifle license.

... ah!... here, anything other than an autographed cricket bat is sacrilege.

...and be careful what you say... the inbred retards at the MHA might consider placing cricket bats and iron rods in the P.B. category.

@Priyan

Saltpeter IIRC is known as suvarnalavana or suvarsilavana (not common salt), somewhat akin to rock salt.

You can also check out any shop supplying chemicals to school / college labs and ask for potassium nitrate (KNO3), likely to be purer.

Buddy i got a baton and i suppose its good for selfdefence against 2 people but its illigal to import or carry ....

Given a situation that the Originator of this thread Mr Autobot is carrying a Co2 action pistol say in range of 430-480 Fps with a 8 shot rotatory clip type mag and Mr Autobot finds himself in the middle of a situation and decides to pull out his killing machine and lays 3 to 4 shots with in 2 secs right on his attacker'"s face(which is not impossible with a pellet gun), it can be effective to the tune that the attacker if not ready with his arm atleast may get a little dillusional because of the blood gushing out of various holes on his skin or he may be severly injured his eye eyes could be squashed with a pellet. This may at least give Mr autobot valuable seconds to flee the spot like a rocket and save his ar*e

In no way this is to promote the "Air gun Defence " sentiment, just trying to give Mr Autobot's thoughts a perspective. :lol:
