This is an updated article on collapsible weapons. Our first article was several years ago, and we will continue to update this article as we discover more weapons that can fold or disassemble to a smaller profile.
The best collapsible weapons balance portability with functionality. Having a weapon that is effective and collapsible can increase your chances of survival when SHTF. Anything that is collapsible is usually a homerun for a survival-oriented bug out bag. Collapsible containers, tents, bags- they all make better use of the limited space a bug out bag offers.
While you may sacrifice some immediate usefulness by having to reassemble or expand these items, the space savings are usually worth it. Collapsible weapons are no different. Being able to store a packable weapon in a relatively small space is a big advantage. Below, we will take a look at firearms, hunting weapons, close-quarters weapons, and even an opportunity weapon- all of which are collapsible.
1. Telescopic Baton
An LEO favorite, the baton is quick to deploy even though it can collapse down to a very small size. A telescopic baton can give you even more leverage in a close-quarter encounter. The baton is very inconspicuous when not extended. Deploying the baton with a flick of your wrist is a quick way to show you mean business and gives you much better reach.
As with any weapon or fighting technique, you can’t just go throwing one into your bug out bag and then call it a day. You will need basic training at the very least—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
