If you decide to use pepper spray or tear gas, practice a few times on a tree or similar target. Itís important to know how far and wide spray will go with your particular model. If you are using a stun gun, practice how you can position it and how to hold it firmly. Stun guns in particular can deter an attacker by simply firing a short blast in air. The higher-powered models will blast a bright electrical arch and create a very menacing sound.
Understanding how verbal self-defense works is necessary whether or not you choose to use additional self-defense products. The power of your voice shows your confidence, willingness to defend yourself and your commitment to use any item you have. If you do choose a personal protection item, itís important to check with your local law enforcement to see which products are legal in your area. Fortunately, most states allow some type of defense product for personal use.
