3 Reasons Why You Need a Self Defense Weapon

Dec 29, 2007
Are you truly prepared for a violent situation? This is a question that far too many people neglect to ask themselves on a daily basis. Yet when it comes to safety, it could be the very question that saves your life. So, if you ever thought that you never needed any protection, here are three important reasons why you need a self defense weapon.

Reason #1: You need to stack the cards in your favor

Picture this. You are walking down a quiet street minding your business. Its a quiet night, the stars are out, and you are feeling pretty good. All of sudden, out of the blue, someone walks by you and grabs your arm.

He tells you he has a gun to your side, and you need to walk with him if you want to get out of the situation alive. What do you do? You have no protection, and there is no one around to hear you scream.

So you now have two choices, you can gouge, punch, claw and run for your life, and hope you dont get shot. Or you can go with the guy and hope that if you follow his directions, you will make it out of this situation alive

The obvious choice in this situation would be to punch, claw, gouge, and whatever else you could do so that you could run for your life, since going with an attacker to anywhere is not an option. However, even that could end very badly.

But what if you had more options? What if you could stun your attacker with a taser or stun gun? What if you could spray them in the face with pepper spray? What if you could sound an alarm to get someones attention?

When you own a self defense weapon, you stack the deck in your favor. You give yourself more viable opportunities of getting out of scary situations alive and hopefully unharmed.

Reason #2: Self defense weapons are the ultimate distraction

The entire purpose of self defense is to render your attacker defenseless as quickly as possible so that you can escape to a safe place. In a self defense situation, a defenseless moment could simple as a distraction. Or it can be as complex as an attack that renders an attacker defenseless, a spray to the eyes with a pepper spray.

Either way, you need to have a moment where your attacker is rendered defenseless, if you hope to increase your chances of escape. Self Defense weapons provide you with that opportunity to render you attacker defenseless. At the very least it provides you with one of the best distractions you can get in order to escape.

Reason #3: Self defense weapons can be used almost immediately
So, you want to defend yourself. You realize that a violent situation is a real threat and you want to protect yourself. So, you decide to sign up for a self defense class or course so that you will know how to take down the bad guys on the street.

While this is a great idea, the truth is, learning martial arts as self defense takes time to master. On top of this, your average Joe in martial arts really does no have the true know how to be able to handle a man with a knife, or a man who has no inhibitions.

A self defense weapon usually channels an attackers nervous system or some part of the body, which will leave an attacker defenseless. These items usually take very little time to learn (usually less than a few minutes) and can truly save you life right away.

Again, realize that a real fight for your life is not about pride or ego. It is about staying alive to fight another day. Self Defense products and weapons will help you do that.
