Are you afraid of walking around a big city because you do not want to be assaulted? The fear of being assaulted is a fear that haunts many people. It is important that you look into ways to protect yourself, and one of the best ways to do that is with self-defense weapons. This article is going to tell you about the two most effective non-lethal self-defense weapons.
The first, and most obvious, self-defense weapon is pepper spray. Pepper spray is one of the best ways to stop an attacker in their tracks because it causes inflammation of the mucous membranes in the throat, nose, eyes, and lungs of the attacker. The spray causes the attacker to lose the ability to catch their breath or open their eyes, which allows you the time needed to get away.
Pepper spray encounter’s problems because you are going to need to be able to spray the attacker in the face from 8 feet to 20 feet. Also, wind could affect the direction the spray travels. Another thing you must consider is that most attackers come at you from behind or surprise you, which eliminates the chance for you to spray them.
The second self-defense weapon is the stun gun. Stun guns shoot electrical voltage into an attacker which disrupts the muscle functions. The voltage that is produced will cause some pain to your attacker, but it interferes with the neurological impulses sent from the brain to the muscles, which stops your attacker from controlling their muscle function.
The problem with stun guns is that the device’s electrodes must make contact with your target, meaning the attacker will have to be right next to you before you can use the weapon. However, this is a better choice of a weapon in case an attacker comes up from behind you. Aiming a spray can be hard if an attacker comes up from behind you; but, with a stun gun, you can jam the weapon into your attacker’s body and push the button.
There is no reason why you should be afraid to walk around cities by yourself. There is also no reason why you should not be able to protect yourself. The two most effective non-lethal self-defense weapons are the pepper spray and the stun gun. These two weapons, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, must be considered when you are looking for ways to defend yourself from an attacker.
