The 15 Most Terrifying Homemade Prison Weapons

Prison is a scary-ass place, there’s no doubt about it. Hundreds of potentially violent people locked into a limited space, all of whom really, really don’t want to be there. With such high pressure stakes, things easily take a turn for the violent, and in an environment with almost no weapons, any tool to hurt other people is a major advantage. These 15 weapons were all crudely constructed from prison materials, but all could do some serious damage to you. Proving once again, that humans will always find a way to fuck each other up.

There’s no way in hell you’re going to get your hands on a decent gun, but you need some sort of weapon to intimidate people. Enter the world of fake guns — crafted to look like the real thing, but obviously not, and with the side benefit of not carrying as large of a punishment if you end up being caught as the real thing either.

Yeah, I’d totally believe it looks like a gun.
