A violent crime occurs every 19 seconds and an assault every 29 seconds. Yet a lot of folks are lulled into sense of complacency after they get their non lethal self defense weapon-their stun gun. On the contrary having a non lethal self defense weapon is only the first step towards defending yourself.
The next step is to get some formal training-your local police department may be able to help. The next safest bet is to go online and check out some resources there.
Mentally rehearse what you will do in case of an emergency-PRACTICE!
Physically rehearse using your stun gun-PRACTICE!
Practice against an imaginary assailant until you are comfortable with your ability to use it quickly and effectively-PRACTICE!
DID SOMEONE SAY PRACTICE?
Remember an assailant may try to get the stun gun away from you. Most have built in disabling features. That is why it is so important to react quickly, reflexively-in an instant to successfully defend yourself. The time you have to recognize an assault and bring the stun gun to action may be less than a second!
When you are on foot, especially in the dark, in an isolated area carry your stun gun in your hand ready for use. It is not a bad idea to have one in your car, your home, place of work, and of course with you to cover any contingency.
A short burst of 500,000 volts will allow you up to 3 minutes or more to escape, subdue the assailant, or get help. That is the amazing 3 minute cure for the common assault.
Women are particularly vulnerable, especially those who work late at night, those in sales positions, real estate agents, and those who live alone. They in particular need non lethal self defense products such as an effective stun gun.
Check with your local police department. Literally thousands of police departments carry and use stun guns. Why wouldn?t you?
