Defense Against Crime

Which Personal Protection Product is right for you?


When it comes to choosing which self-defense method you want to have, there are only two paths you can take. The first is to carry a lethal product, such as a gun. The other are non-lethal like pepper sprays or stun gun. Whichever you select you need to be ready to use it when the time comes, and also ready to deal with the consequences and responsibilities that come with your choice. While there are many gun owners in the United States, there are certain benefits and risks that come with Gun ownership. The NRA, and other gun owners across the nation will certainly promote the benefits of gun ownership. However, some studies show that a large percentage of gunshot victims are shot by people they know, and another study shows that people who carry guns are far likelier to get shot – and killed – than those who are unarmed. Whichever you decide to use for your defense be responsible with it and know how to use it. I’ve advocated non-lethal self-defense because they were designed to protect you without involving the taking of a life.

If you decide you want to get a non-lethal personal protection product, you have a wide variety to choose from. Non-lethal personal protection products are gaining in reputation because they are effective against criminals. Martial arts and other self-defense courses are excellent enhancements to your self-defense strategy especially for those moments where who are empty-handed.

However, in the very busy world some citizens don’t have time or make the time to lean these defensive methods. In addition, you are not always going to have the opportunity to use learned self-defense skills. Non-lethal personal protection products such as pepper sprays, stun guns, tasers, etc. often provide an easy to use solution.

However, before you go out and purchase a non-lethal personal protection product you need to make the following determinations:

Which is Best for You?

Research, study and learn as much as you can about what is available. See what product is going to be the right fit for you both on a physical and mental level. Each product has its advantages and disadvantage.

Know How to Use it

Having any personal protection product and not knowing how to use it can injure you as easily as it can hurt your assailant. Once you have chosen a self-defense product, ask for proper instructions on how to use it, or take a course in using the products properly. Then PRACTICE using it until it becomes second nature.

Is it Legal for you to have?

You don’t want the embarrassment of being harassed by local law enforcement. Take the time to see if you are allowed to carry the self-defense product you have chosen. Your local law enforcement officer or quick internet search can help you or check my website www.peppereyes.com for pepper spray laws or stun gun laws and restrictions.

Keep it Simple

In the wild west, most cowboys only carried only one gun. If pepper spray is going to give you the jump you need to defend against a criminal, then there is really no need to additionally carry stun guns, or a taser. When the time comes to use your product there cannot be any indecision or hesitation as to which to use. I few seconds can make a difference.

Summary

If used correctly any Personal Protection Products can get you out of a bad situation – there is no doubt about that. Whether you choose lethal or non-lethal know what you’re getting. Unless you know what you need, how to use that product, and the legality of it, you may be getting yourself into trouble. You can actually do yourself more harm that good, by not doing your research before you invest time and money into any personal protection product. They can save your life, your money and provide you with peace of mind.
