One of the most common statements I hear when discussing self defense products is “I don’t want them (the attacker) to get that close to me.”
The truth is that victims are not really the ones who make the choice. Assailants will use the element of surprise, the cover of darkness and isolated areas to make their move, hoping we won’t have time to react.
However, if you follow the most important safety tip, which is to be aware of your surroundings, you are less likely to be caught off guard. You then have the opportunity to be able to keep your attacker at a distance. One of the best self defense products to do this with is the new Mace Pepper Spray Gun Distance Defense model.
Mace is a household name and has long been the leader in defense sprays. The Mace Pepper Gun is the most accurate non-lethal self-defense pepper spray available. It is ideal for distance defense and has the convenience and accuracy of a point-and-shoot handgun design. It has an advanced delivery system which allows you to spray attackers with a power stream of OC pepper spray from up to 20 feet away and from any angle. Its size makes it easy to keep in a purse or in a holster.
What makes this Mace Pepper Gun different from former models is the new strobe LED feature. Pulling the trigger once will activate the steady LED flashlight mode. This enables you to see your target. Pull the trigger a second time and a pulsating LED strobe light is engaged.
Have you ever been to a nightclub when the strobe light is lit? Then you know how disorienting it can be. Your potential attacker will have a much harder time focusing on you as his target with this blinding pulsating light shining in his face.
If that doesn’t keep the thug from coming at you, then you can spray him with the Mace maximum strength formula. This defense spray also has an identifying UV dye that can help police identify your attacker.
The Pepper Guns are easy to reload with pre-filled OC cartridges. You even get a water cartridge so you can practice using it. In my opinion, this product is an excellent non lethal alternative to carrying a firearm. Pepper spray is a time tested, proven method of self defense. The effects set in within a few seconds and can last from 10 to 4 minutes, giving you plenty of time to get to safety.
