Self defense products offer a nonlethal alternative to deadly force in Eldridge IA 52748. They give you time to get away from a dangerous situation and seek help. Nothing more! There are lots of nonlethal self defense weapons to choose from in Eldridge IA 52748. Self defense items like stun guns, tasers and pepper sprays all work and are easy-to-use and very effective in Eldridge IA 52748.
Here is a comparison of the three most common ones.
1. Pepper sprays-these are the smallest in the cheapest of the three with prices starting at $10. They provide up to 45 minutes of safety for you to seek help at a dangerous situation. Some come disguised. The lipstick pepper spray is one of the most popular. No one can tell what it is. The Mace pepper gun has a range of 25 feet. Almost all pepper sprays shoot a 10 percent solution of oleoresin capsicum (OC) which is nasty stuff. It causes shortness of breath, coughing, and heavy tearing of the eyes almost to the point of closing them. Oh and severe pain in Eldridge IA 52748.
2. Stun guns must be applied to an assailant up close and personal. A lot of people have a hard time with that. They are hand held devices with usually two prongs on one end. The prongs conduct an electrical charge that when applied to an assailant for 3 to 5 seconds causes the body to over work so much that all blood sugars are used up depleting energy levels. No long-lasting damage is done in Eldridge IA 52748.
3. Tasers – shoot two electrified barbs up to 15 feet away. In tests done tasers have more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun. They are used by over 11,000 law enforcement agencies in the country. Does that give you an idea how effective they are? The taser overrides the central nervous system providing a nearly 100 percent take down rate.
Which is best for you in Eldridge IA 52748? Only you can decide. I always recommend a pepper spray and a stun gun for short and long range protection.
