Learning To Protect Myself At Night
Being a newsbeat reporter, I normally have to work late and on location with my dependable cameraman. But, the moment we get back to the station, I have to return home by myself.
For my safety, I soon found that I must get a self-defense weapon just like a defense spray. If you ask me, the best pepper spray for women is one that they can easily use on an attacker who is much stronger or bigger than they are.
A pepper spray is a non-lethal weapon that puts an attacker out of action for several minutes. Whenever sprayed onto the skin or to the eyes, it causes the person to feel a burning sensation which will incapacitate him/her temporarily, giving you plenty of time to get away.
I decided that I wanted a disguised pepper spray and a mini pepper spray combined into one. A defense spray in disguise offers an element of surprise. Your opponent is not going to know what hit him/her.
Meanwhile, an extremely small pepper spray is handy. It can fit in my handbag or in the pocket of my jeans or coat. In addition, it can be easily concealed in my hand due to its size.
After a lot of Internet browsing, I soon found out about lipstick pepper sprays. They have an amazing disguise. That is, they look like actual tubes of lipstick. To further cement their disguise, their measurement is just like that of a lipstick.
I ordered a lipstick pepper spray on the internet. I selected the -ounce black tube. This one has 20 half-second bursts, hence, it can be utilized a couple of times. It can also achieve a range of 10 feet. This was a bit of a relief to find out as it meant that the attacker do not need to come nearer before I can use my weapon on him/her.
Today, I can report the news without any kind of worries about what might happen to me whenever I go back home later that evening. Certainly, the best pepper spray for women is one that can assure them that they could handle a felon by themselves.
