I’ve said in several of my logs, that when you take some type of Martial Arts class, the instructors will make you practice and, practice and practice the moves, over and over until they become second nature. When you decide to carry pepper spray or some type of self-defense product you made a first wise choice. However, having a pepper spray product is only half the solution. KNOWING HOW TO USE IT, is also necessary to your self-defense plan.
Imagine someone coming at you, and you start fumbling to get to your pepper spray, and then try to fire it, but since you never trained with it you weren’t aware that you have to slide the trigger to the unlock position. Unfortunately since it took you too long, you were attacked and became another crime victim.
It has been our recommendation that when you buy pepper spray that you purchase two. One to use , and one unit to practice with. Just like how Barney Fife used to practice he quick draw, you should experiment and develop practice drills regardless of how and where you can carry your pepper spray. If you carry it in your purse, keep in mind that you want to retain possession of it even if your purse is grabbed and yanked away. Therefore, it should be positioned and clipped to your purse in such a way that when you hold it was you are riding public transportation, walking, or just standing, any downward or sideways yank of the purse will leave the spray in your hand.
Whenever you’re on foot, such as walking to your car, leaving a restaurant, going to your residence, shopping – or anytime you are by yourself-you should have your pepper spray in your hand and ready to use Whether you normally carry they spray in your purse, on your belt, or attacked to your key-chain makes no difference. When you are alone or in a potentially risky situation, have it in your hands. The time frame that it takes to recognizing a threat and getting ready to deal with it can be mere seconds.
This is also the reason, it is very important to mentally rehearse exactly what to do in case you have to use your pepper spray. What will you do is you are being followed? What will you do if someone gets in the elevator with you that mean you harm? What if someone tries to force their way into your residence? Practice against an imaginary assailant until you are extremely comfortable with your ability to use it quickly and effectively. This could make the difference between your being the next crime victim, or the next victorious survivor.
