Do You Really Know How to Use Pepper Spray?
A self defense device is worthless unless you know how to use it correctly. Simply carrying a gun, taser or pepper spray can get you in more trouble than it can help you. Often times the guy with the gun, for example, ends up getting shot due to a false sense of security. And more importantly he or she simply did not know how to properly use the self defense device they thought would save their lives.
When relying on any defense product, proper training and education can make the difference between walking away from the assailant or being seriously hurt. Always know your capabilities and limitations as well as the capabilities and limitations of the product you are using.
For example, if you carry pepper spray, you should be able to answer the following questions.
- Have I ever used pepper spray? If not how does it work?
- What distance is the Pepper Spray effective?
- Where do I aim and how long do I spray it?
- Is it readily accessible?
- What do I do after I spray the assailant?
These questions may seem basic, but I bet many of you are saying, huh good questions. As I was saying earlier about the false sense of security, if you can't answer these questions you need to think about what you would do in an attack situation. The best thing to do is to practice. For what a small can of inert spray (no pepper) costs it would be worth it to do your homework, no matter how basic it may seem. Can you put a price on you or your loved ones safety?
