After retirement from Law Enforcement as a veteran of over 30 years, I decided to use my expertise to help others to avoid becoming a victim. After much study and research my conclusion is that the best defense is a stun gun. Why? A stun gun is a defensive weapon that can disable an attacker no matter how large or condition. A stun gun can intimidate an attacker from accross a parking lot. Most criminals are looking for an easy target so merely demonstrating one is armed is sufficient to avoid becoming a target. A knife, gun, pepper spray or many other weapons cannot be seen at a distance or at night. The loud cracking noise and bright electrical flash from a stun gun can be heard and seen from a cosiderable distance. Another problem with displaying a gun or a knife to someone is the fact that law enforcement can see this as a threat, thus, you may be arrested. It is also a proven fact that much of the time a gun or knife is taken from the victim and the victim is killed with their own weapon. A stun gun does not kill.
Pepper spray is a good cose-up defense which can be carried on a key chain, in a glove box, purse. Advantages: Causes blurred vision and stinging pain to the skin and eyes, most pepper spray comes with an added uv die that aides law enforcement in identification. Disadvantages are that it does not completed disable the attacker and does not lessen his strength. Hopefully, when the attacker is sprayed he will let go of the victim due to the pain. If an attacker has mental conditions to include drug use, pepper spray may not be as effective.
