If you are serious about self defense, and you want to take a non-lethal approach, you will have a choice between only a few items that can stop an attacker in his/her tracks.
You have a right to protect yourself and those you love. And you should be able to act on a moments notice. Don’t become another victim……fight back!
Stun Guns, of at least 400,000 volts and up, will stop most people. Some people can take quite a jolt, and keep on coming. It really depends on what part of the body the Stun Gun contacts.
A strong Stun Gun, and they go up to 750,000 volts, can drop a large man in seconds. You would contact the upper part of the body, on the torso. You will have time to either get away, or furthur subdue the attacker. If there is more than one attacker, you will have to be in close contact with each of them, in order to stop the attack.
If you had a TASER, it would shoot out two electronic darts attached to wires that would bring down any man, except for maybe Rodney King. The TASER only holds one shot, after that it functions only as a stun gun.
Pepper Sprays, such as MACE, are extremely effective in stopping an attack. Pepper Sprays come in a couple of strenghts, but believe me, you would not like to be sprayed by any of them. They also come in different sizes.
Here is the difference — You can use Pepper Sprays at a distance, and you can be effective with several attackers at one time, You can spray a whole gang at one time with some of these large spray canisters. A drawback with Pepper Sprays is that you have to be careful not to spray into the wind. It will come back in your face, and you will be very sorry. If you use a spray indoors, no problem with spray-back.
You can also buy Combo Stun Guns. This is a Stun Gun with built in Pepper Spray. Now you can first Pepper Spray, and if needed…you can Stun the attacker. A great combination.
It is ALWAYS better to keep a distance from an attacker. This is most effectively done with Pepper Spray.
