Honestly, it’s a personal choice. When I say personal choice, it includes one’s stamina, physical fitness, and combat training experiences. A situation may also determine which weapon is more suitable than others.
Let us look at such situations in detail below :
Case 1: Senior citizens and untrained women
They should use pepper sprays or a taser gun to avoid hurting themselves.
Case 2: In a closed environment
Since pepper sprays tend to spread, it tends to affect the user too if used without proper precaution in a closed environment. Pepper spray is best suited for scenarios where immediate escape is possible.
Case 3: If the attacker is wearing a mask or glasses covering face and eyes
In this case, the pepper spray won’t be effective as the pepper spray will not contact his eyes or nose. It’s better to use either a stun gun or a taser in this kind of situation.
Therefore, choose your weapon wisely and better equip yourself with multiple self-defence gadgets so that you always have the right weapon to protect your life and valuables.
