I have been contemplating how a blend of martial arts and weapons would play out in a real self defense situation.I do believe that neither a weapon or martial arts can guarantee saftey but was thinking both might be tough to beat. If someone surprise attacks you,you better get control of your weapon before he does.Having good martial arts training will give you a distinct advantage to make sure that happens.Any additional thoughts?

Weapons definitely give you an edge.

Unconditional weapons should also be considered. The stick on the ground, water bottle, trash can lid, etc. Maybe if you use these as extentions of your arms, you can adapt your martial art training to virtually anything?

Just a thought...

Mindset. The mindset to whether you want to utilize your environment to survive.(If I did not interpret wrongly) Even sand can act as weapons. If someone is punching you from above, you can throw sand into his eyes if possible. Smashed bottles, roll-up newspaper, and even rocks too can be used as weapons.

I'm not talking about improvised weapons,I'm talking about weapons legally carried by martial artist.

Sorry then. In my country, carrying weapons are illegal though. Can you give some examples of legal weapons carried by MAist?

In the US:
gun

kubotan
probably many more I can't think of

Some do require permits.

I would probaby use the knife to ward off attackers. As for the gun, I wouldn't dare for I am afraid of missing. Stun gun could be used in a tight guard position if so unfortuantely you go to the ground and if you could find some way to reach into your pocket. Otherwise, I think it could be used in place of submission on the mount. As for kubotan, what is that?

Kubotan: modernly put on a keychain. An implement to strengthen fists for punching and using on pressure/striking points. Here are a few examples:
