Advantages of Personal Defense Devices
Fight or flight are the two options one have whenever he or she feels that he or she is under attack. One would only think of fighting where he or she thinks that she or he is capable of overpowering the thing or person attacking. One’s decision to flight may only be an informed decision when one is sure that he or she can outdo the enemy. It is only after most people think that they can overpower the thing or person in question that they defend themselves. While there are cases where it is very clear on whether one is going to flight or to fight, some instances may be confusing. One may not be sure whether he or she can outdo the enemy in running nor is he or she sure whether he or she can find help in the net few minutes where one opts to delay the enemy.
One would need a protective device where he or she can defend himself or herself whenever threatened but at the same time defend oneself from causing permanent harm to others. One should not defend himself only to be followed by complex legal proceedings especially where one has killed. Among the gadgets one can be sure that he or she will not face consequences about include a defense spray.
Where one has a defense spray, he or she could be sure of keeping the assailant at a safe distance as one strategize on calling for help or running away. One can either stop the attack or disable it and be in a position to escape or call for help where he or she has a defense spray at his or her disposal. One would also need to know that he or she can stop an attack even when he or she is at a range of about 8 to 12 feet from the assailant and do it within seconds. One would take advantage of the fact that these devices are small, they are easy to carry and also tend to be non-lethal to the victim. One would also need to know that the defensive spray tends to leave no mark on the body of the person one is defending himself or herself from. One does not need any special training as he or she only needs to point and shoot at the assailant without fear of killing him or her. One would need to save time he or she would have spent in rigorous training one could receive if he or she was to purchase a gun. One would only need to be sure that he or she is well positioned especially on windy days and also make sure that he or she can point at the assailant appropriately.
