Buy Pepper Spray
There are a lot of people who want to carry some form of self defense weapon, but they’re afraid they won’t have the nerve to use it if they’re attacked. And, this is a valid concern. When people ask me what they should do in this case, I always suggest for them to at least buy pepper spray.
I tell them to buy pepper spray, as a starter, for a couple of reasons. First, its relatively inexpensive. So, if they buy it, but never use it, its not a lost investment. Second, this weapon is something that they can buy and do a couple of test sprays with, just to get the feel for it ahead of time. This way, if they ARE confronted by an attacker, they’ll feel much more comfortable in using it when they need to. Finally, pepper spray is a great entry level product. Once someone buys it and gets comfortable with it, its usually a lot easier to graduate to a grander form of self defense weapon, like a stun gun or taser or something.
