Although there is a multitude of weapon choices for non-lethal self defense, the specific weapon you choose is a matter of personal preference. One can find everything from pepper spray to steel batons advertised on the internet. A great choice for self defense is a cell phone stun gun.
These stun guns are easy to carry, easy to conceal, they pack a real punch and they look completely innocent so an attacker is caught off guard. They can be carried on the belt, in a purse or anywhere a cell phone can be carried. With almost everyone carrying them today, they are so common place we hardly notice them anymore.
An attacker will truly be shocked, no pun intended, to find that your harmless camera cell phone is actually non lethal weapon. The bad guy will be worried about a gun, knife or something threatening. A cell phone will not likely be identified as a weapon he needs to fear. It is small, the size of a regular cell phone, and probably won’t even be noticed in the palm of your hand.
The cell phone stun gun works like any other stun gun. You press the end of the weapon against the attacker’s body, pull the trigger and it applies a high voltage, low amperage charge to the attacker. This shock will temporarily incapacitate an attacker. The attacker feels pain and can be temporarily paralyzed.
While the attacker is immobilized it is time to make your get away. When we choose a non lethal weapon our goal is to stop the attack and get out of harm’s way. Whether your weapon choice is pepper spray, personal alarm or steel baton always run away from the attack if possible. Remember the attacker may only be immobilized temporarily.
These effective non lethal weapons are available in several styles, sizes and prices just like any other stun gun. Some operate on batteries and some like the rechargeable Pretender 4.5 Million volt cell phone stun guns are rechargeable. The Pretender comes in pink or black, has a 6 LED built-in flashlight and comes with a holster and charger.
Why buy a cell phone stun gun? They are easy to conceal, they are easy to carry, they look harmless, they are reasonably priced and they are very effective. They also just look cool.
Just remember you first goal is to remove yourself from danger. Use your weapon if it is necessary and then remove yourself from the area of danger.
