The Need for Self-Defense Products

Feb 1, 2008
Protecting yourself is one of life's basic instincts of survival. When you sense danger your body goes into high stress mode to warn you. Being able to defend yourself from harmful situations is essential. Don't be caught off guard without self-defense products.

Using Self-Defense Products

Stay out of harm's way. Keep yourself out of areas that are known to be dangerous. It is just good, common sense. Be cautious anytime you are alone in public, though. Take precautions at home to make sure no one gets in uninvited. That being said, if you are in danger, you need to be able to protect yourself at a moments notice. Assuming you're not a master of karate or the like, you'll need to carry the right self-defense products.

Using self-defense products requires little or no training. The idea is to temporarily stun a potentially harmful person to enable you to escape. It allows you enough time to call for help. It immobilizes the person so he or she does not get away and have the opportunity to hurt someone else. Self-defense products are a great alternative to carrying a loaded gun, a knife or another weapon that could cause permanent damage or even death.

Using Non-Lethal Weapons for Personal Security

Protecting yourself and your family is your right. If it appears you are at risk of being hurt or kidnapped, someone threatens you if you don't give them money or a stranger enters home, you have the right to use non-lethal weapons to protect yourself.

Personal security is also an issue when it comes to being attacked by dogs or wild animals. Whether you're dealing with people or animals, pepper sprays, tasers, stun guns and batons are effective means of protecting yourself without causing undue damage.

Types of Self-Defense Products Available

* Pepper spray
* Stun gun
* Lasers
* Batons

Each of these self-defense products comes in a wide variety of packaging. Aside from knowing how to use the self-defense product of your choice, it is important to remember to keep it with you at all times. It is impossible to know when you'll be in a dangerous situation and require the use of a self-defense product to save your life.

There are a variety of the self-defense product that suits almost every situation and need. Men, for example, might prefer using a cell phone stun gun or a pepper spray pager. Women, on the other hand, may prefer to carry a pepper spray pen or lipstick case, a pepper spray book or stone ring to stop harmful people dead in their tracks.

What each of these products has in common is that they are easy to use, easy to obtain and will stop a dangerous person from harming you without causing any permanent damage. This is especially important because there is always a risk that an intruder could overpower you, take the weapon from you and use it against you. When you use a self-defense product, you won't experience long-term damage if the situation does get turned about.

Be Prepared for the Unexpected

Carrying one of the latest models of some defense products allows you to discreetly have the means for self protection. Carrying a non-lethal weapon gives you a sense of security when you're out in public. Don't let fear of the unknown and unexpected control your life. Buy a personal self-defense weapon and be prepared to use it if necessary.
