5 Reasons to Choose Pepper Spray Over Other Self Defense Weapons

When it comes to self defense, you have dozens of choices, including guns, knives, stun guns, and pepper spray. Pepper spray is the safest of these; it is a safe and effective way to get away from any attacker. Pepper spray is easy to carry, simple to use, and requires no permits or special training to use correctly.

Pepper spray is a nonlethal self defense weapon, making it an excellent choice for those who would be scared to shoot a gun or use a knife, even against someone who is attacking them. There is no worry about permanently harming your attacker, and pepper spray is even safe to use against animals. Even though it's nonlethal, pepper spray packs a powerful punch, stunning your attacker for several minutes, causing temporary blindness among other symptoms and giving you plenty of time to get away.

Pepper spray comes in a small canister that is easy to carry in a purse or pocket. It is legal across the United States with no special permits, and you're much less likely to be asked questions than if carrying a gun, knife, or stun gun. Some are even disguised as everyday objects, which can make you even more comfortable carrying pepper spray for self defense.

You must be comfortable both carrying and using your self defense choice, because carrying a gun, knife, or other device does no good if you are afraid or unable to use it when necessary. Unlike guns or other self defense devices, a canister of pepper spray can be operated correctly by anyone. It is as easy to use as a can of paint or hair spray. In the heat of the moment, you won't have time to figure out how to use your self defense device. Just press the button and your pepper spray will be propelled towards your attacker's face. It requires no skill to successfully use the spray against an attacker, and you don't even need to be terribly accurate when aiming the canister at your attacker's face.

While your attacker will know what's coming immediately after you pull out a gun or knife, the same isn't true with pepper spray. Many attackers won't realize what you have until it's too late. This is especially true with pepper spray in a disguised package, like those meant to look like jogging weights, a keychain, or a pen. The element of surprise can give you valuable seconds to aim the spray right at your attacker's face.

Unlike other self defense methods, like a gun, stun gun, or physical defense moves, you don't need to be within arm's reach to use pepper spray effectively. Most canisters have a range of at least 6 feet, and up to 15 feet with the right conditions. Pepper spray is one of the most inexpensive yet effective ways to protect yourself, making it a wise investment for your safety.
