An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.--Robert A. Heinlein

Tasers

Chilie extracts create the non-lethal force by causing eye irritation and sometimes even partial blindness temporarily.  This makes it ideal for someone who isnt comfortable using a chemical self defense spray, and is relatively simple to use.

  • Make sure it is in an easily accessed location, a pocket or key chain, not buried in the bottom of a purse or briefcase.
  • Be familiar with getting it out quickly and with the devices safety mechanism
  • When you are aiming the spray, do not fully extend your arm, keeping it bent.
  • When deploying the spray, aim for the eyes and fan your spray, this allow you to cover the whole attacker and accommodate for his or her movement.

Pepper spray can take a moment for it's effects to be felt, so dont immediately deploy a second application. Continue to back away and be vocal, yelling at your attacker to stay away, hopefully this will also bring attention to what is happening.

Personal protection weapons are simply that; weapons for personal defense. Also called CQC weapons (or Close Quarter Combat weapons) they can include everything from knives to handguns to brass knuckles to tasers. These are weapons specifically designed to dispatch anything that gets close enough to get YOU. Choose carefully based on your own abilities and skills though, if you weigh 150 pounds, a heavy battle axe is probably not the best choice for you, particularly if facing multiple Zombies. You want weapons you can handle quickly and efficiently.
