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
It’s better for them to use pepper sprays or a taser gun in order to avoid hurting themselves.
Case 2 : In a closed environment
Since pepper sprays have the tendency 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 come in contact with 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.
