may people believe that a pepper spray is only effective when you are having it in your hand and ready to use. I personally do not agree with this statement. If you realize that there is more and more crime around us and the world is not as safe anymore as a few years ago you also have to realize that our way of living have changed.
We are more aware of our surrounding
Years ago most people for example would just go to any ATM and pull out there cash. Lately more people go inside the bank or park as close as possible to the ATM and do not use it late at night anymore after dark. This all means that our way of living and thinking has changed.
To arm or not to arm
This almost seem to be the question we have to answer at this moment in time. Although I have nothing against guns and have several myself, I think there are other ways of protecting ourself in many situations.
Since I mentioned that we are becoming more aware of our life and where we are and what is happening around us the use of a pepper spray is in my opinion one of the very effective non-lethal self defense weapons we can use to defend ourselves.
Where can we hide it
There is a simple rule and that is that if you want to be able to use it it has to be within reach. This means that a glove compartment is not so effective. There are pepper sprays for you car visor that you just attach to the sun-visor and this means it is right within reaching distance for you.
More options for pepper sprays
There are many more options for pepper sprays to be used in many situations. If you look around you can find a pepper spray hidden in many products we use every day. One of the examples I can give is a pepper spray hidden in a pen and lets be honest. Most of carry a pen on us all the time.
Just look around and ask yourself if you have to need to protect yourself with one of the non lethal self defense weapons that are available. Just make sure to check your local and state regulations before purchasing one.
