Gone were the days when we can feel safe in our own homes or we can safely walk alone on the street day or night without fear of being robbed, mugged or attacked.
Those days we seldom hear of robberies, snatch thieves, and even if there were, they were mostly isolated cases. The nature of the crime has progressed from minor to serious cases and some even caused lives of innocent victims.
Many of the attacked victims were not expecting an attack and most of them were taken unaware and unprepared. They were caught off guard and were totally helpless when they came face to face with the attacker. None of the victims was intentionally looking to be the victim of an attacker.
It looks like we are constantly in danger of being victimized whenever we are left alone by ourselves. When faced with such a reality, we have to take precaution for our personal safety. We should carry or equip ourselves with a self-defense tool that we know how to use and feel at home with it. There is no point carrying a self-defense weapon and not know how to use it when danger strikes.
A woman can conveniently carry a pepper spray or get the best stun gun for a woman attached to a keychain and get it hooked to her handbag’s zipper or sling. In times of emergency, she can just reach out for it without having to search for it in the depth of her handbag among other things.
There are many types of self-defense weapons to choose from. There is a wide selection of portable stun guns available for both men and women. Stun guns are legal in most places and they are highly effective. When a stun gun is fired, it delivers a high voltage electricity to the attacker’s body by attacking the nervous system to immobilize the attacker.
Some especially the men may prefer to carry a collapsible baton to a stun gun. A collapsible baton is light weight and can be easily opened with the flick of a wrist. Some collapsible batons are designed to look like pens, acts as LED flashlights and can be used at a distance without waiting for the attacker to come close to you.
These are just a few weapons for self-defense that you can try to make sure that you keep you and your family members safe wherever you are.
