The term ‘exotic weapons‘ can and has been applied to weapons which go beyond the realms of conventional design to offer the user a distinct advantage or capability in a combat situation. Traditional ideas of weaponry and tactics have sometimes been altered out of necessity or by intuition and produced some significant advances in new-age thinking on the subject. Some of the most exotic weapons ever made and used for home defense purposes are contained below in the Top 5 list we’ve written. Survival Guide
1. Air-Powered .30 Cal Light Machine Gun (LMG)
Advantage: Extreme Fire Power
This LMG was designed in the early 1990s by Jeff Caselman and offers high rates of fire and power. As a result of the 32 ACP power, the .30 caliber 30 shot cartridge empties quickly. With a fully functioning rate of fire selection, this hand-held rifle-size LMG is equally valuable for survival and defense in close quarters and medium-long distance situations.
2. British Standard Pipe (BSP) 9mm Homemade Sub-Machine Gun (SMG)
Advantage: Cheap and Homemade
This prototype SMG is built using retooled BSP which can be purchased at almost any hardware store. The BSP-SMG is designed for use with 9mm 124g JHP ammunition and gives a high rate of fire. Those in need of defensive measures within a limited budget will find the cheap configuration of the weapon a significant advantage.
3. Electro-Mechanical Chemical Pistol
Advantage: Chemical Deterrent
This improved chemical pistol is operated and fired using a modern electro-mechanical system. The tank-like handle of the pistol is built to contain the chemical to be discharged. The dual-action trigger-mechanism gives the user two options; first, firing the chemical from a nozzle in the barrel with a second option to ignite the chemical during discharge. The very presence of this gun will act as a deterrent to those opposing the user due to the extremely punishing ammunition which it carries.
4. Compact Foldable Pistol
Advantage: Easily Concealed
This foldable weapon’s compact size and unassuming appearance make it effective for subtle defense purposes. It uses 9mm ammunition and includes a magazine receiver and stock pivotally mounted to a receiver assembly. This semi-automatic pistol can be covered in a pocket or jacket very easily.
5. Multipurpose Rifle/Assault Rifle
Advantage: Variable Configurations
This multipurpose system has a self-loading high caliber rifle module with an assault module attached to the front. Therefore, it offers high power and different rates of fire. This weapon has two trigger assemblies, a first trigger assembly of the high caliber rifle is positioned by the user’s dominant hand while a second trigger assembly of the assault module is used by the user’s other hand. This weapon acts as both an assault rifle and as a high-caliber rifle, conferring upon the user a distinct advantage over smaller caliber weapons and the ability to choose the best configuration for a variety of situations.
