Modern urban living is not without its dangers, many inner city areas are suffering from ever increasing levels of violent crime, police are stretched to the limit trying to keep the streets safe and the law seems to favour the criminal over the victim in most cases. If you are concerned for your own safety and are considering some form of defence personal pepper spray guns could just be the answer.
Almost every civilised country does not allow the public to carry any form of weapons defence which could be deemed lethal, this means for those who are looking for a way to secure their own defence personal weapons are not an option in most cases. However, an increasingly common form of non-lethal weapons defence is pepper spray. For many people who proactively secure their own defence personal pepper spray guns are the ideal option.
Pepper guns are discreet, easily concealed and very simple to operate. They are used to administer a non-lethal dose of pepper based liquid directly into the face of any attacker, resulting in temporary blindness, panic and disorientation. Pepper spray is a very passive form of weapons defence, never used as a direct attack, simply administered to allow the victim time to escape and avoid the actions of their attacker.
Although the actual legal situation is somewhat grey regarding this kind of self defence personal pepper guns are often deemed as relatively harmless, and are unlikely to find the user facing any legal action taken against them, although it should be noted that just because using pepper spray for weapons defence is not strictly illegal in many countries, the use of this kind of weapon could lead to the user facing assault charges if it is deemed that the pepper spray was used inappropriately.
As a discreet form of weapons defence, pepper spray is easily concealed in a pocket or shoulder bag; ready for instant use should it be required. Applicators and guns come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from a tiny aerosol type can to a large gun assembly complete with trigger and stock. The aerosol form is often a use once a discard type of product, whilst the gun type can be refilled and used many times. A major advantage of the gun form of weapons defence is that they can be loaded with water filled tests cartridges so that they can be tested from time to time and ensure that they will be functioning properly when they are needed.
If you are serious about your own defence personal pepper spray may be the perfect option for you. A suitably effective non-lethal weapons defence that is relatively inexpensive, easy to carry and incredibly effective when used properly.
