I might want to center around the cool non lethal weapons for self-defense, some will be locally acquired, and some will be field expedient.
The first to cover is pepper spray or mace. My most loved is bear mace. However, it might be illegal in a few states if you utilize it on somebody. Mace tends to be illegal in a few countries additionally so check with your local laws, city, state and region laws. The fortunate thing about pepper spray is that if it is taken from you, it is simply going to hurt on the off chance that they use it on you, you won’t die as other lethal weapons would.
A few brands and grades of pepper spray are superior to others. However even the little keychain stuff will inflict a considerable lot of agony and blindness, so with pepper spray, you can go cheap and still get a half decent item. My recommendation is, however, don’t go cheap. I like the Cold Steel brand as it is separated to the littlest atoms possible. This makes it the main pepper splash accessible to regular people that I would trust against somebody high in drugs. The reason being is that when the particles are separated, they enter the skin and films better, this makes the tissue swell, consequently if somebody can deal with the agony, major ordeal despite everything they won’t have the capacity to inhale or see because of the swelling. Likewise (like a bear mace) it can have a thirty-foot extend because of it being made of gel.
Another choice is, stun guns. These are the short proximity electronic zappers that involve you getting close. However, they are very compelling and easily concealed. I should caution you that, the less expensive ones you get from the smoke shops and such are no great. There is lack of quality with these and tasers, so you should shop carefully. I recommend a voltage not under 500,000 volts.
The other electronic alternative is tasered. These have projectiles that shootout and send electronic heartbeats through a wire connected to the weapon, they are much more powerful utilizing less voltage, so 100,000 volts is fine since the barbs infiltrate the muscle and make it seize up. The issue is, they require some training to be effective and are very costly, some costing a couple of thousand dollars. I feel that it could be less expensive to purchase, take an instructional course, and get an allow for a gun than utilize this, yet hey we are discussing about cool non lethal weapons.
