Self Defense Place


  • What is the best non-lethal self defense weapon?

    Happy weekend, friends!  I hope you are all starting to enjoy some warmer weather and are getting outside for some fresh air!

    A question I get asked frequently is, "What is the best non-lethal self-defense weapon?"  I respect the right to gun ownership, but not everyone wants to carry a gun.  Like me, some have children and they worry about those children accidentally finding the gun.  Just last week, in another suburb of my city, a child accidentally shot himself to death.  My heart aches for that family.  When these gun accidents do occur, they are often fatal, and there is no coming back from that.

    For those citizens who do want to protect themselves, but do so in a different way, there are many options!  I'm grateful that we have other choices that do not mean almost certain death.

    I like to have a variety of options at my disposal.  For example, pepper spray can be used against an attacker from a distance.  It is ideal to diffuse a bad situation without having to come in close contact with your attacker.  At selfdefenseplace.com, we have a great variety of pepper sprays.  We have wildfire, gels, fogger, you name it.  We also have inert sprays so you can practice without having to use an actual pepper spray.

    So what happens when you can't stop your attacker from a distance? What can we do then? In these cases there are still options! Stun guns are an effective way to halt an attacker.  Surprising your attacker with 18,000,000 volts of electricity can give you time to run away and get help.

    We also have police-grade Tasers, knives, and personal alarms, and more.  I personally carry multiple items for different situations.

    Many people wait to protect themselves after a frightening situation has already occurred.  Please do not wait until you or a loved one is victimized to take action.  Having a way to protect yourself and not having to use it is far better than needing to protect yourself and being defenseless.  We cannot predict the future, but we can be better prepared for what may come.


  • Feeling Confident with my Stun Gun

    Last week I was headed out to meet my friends for a Christmas party.  I get in my car and it makes an awful noise!  It won't start! I was so angry.  Why do these things always happen at the worst times? I was able to get it jump started and found a place still open that sold car batteries.

    Now, this area of town wasn't the best.  It was late. It was dark, and there was a sketchy bar right next door.  Questionable cars with tinted windows were driving around slowly.  I'm not going to lie.  I felt like a target.  Here I was, all dressed up and ready for a party, standing outside in the cold getting my car battery replaced.

    Then I remembered my stun gun in my purse.  I love this pink one that I own.  Many people don't carry a stun gun, even though they should.  The element of surprise is a great thing, and most attackers would not be expecting it.  I breathed a little easier knowing I had my stun gun with me.  Did I have to use it? No, but it certainly made me feel more safe.

    If pink isn't your jam, we have other colors,  styles, and sizes to suit your fancy.  You can see all of our stun guns here.

    Do you have a stun gun? If not, you should.  Non-lethal self defense products may be the game changer for you.



  • What Could Have Been Done?

    It happens far too often--I wake up, turn on my phone to catch the morning news articles, and I see it.  An innocent person was robbed, a student was raped while walking home from a night class, or a jealous ex-boyfriend attacked his former girlfriend.   No one thinks this will ever happen to them.  "What could have done," they ask?  Thankfully, there are many things we can carry with us to protect ourselves and give us a chance to get out of a scary situation.

    One item I want to highlight today is pepper spray.  You don't have to be close to your attacker for it to be effective, and it will allow you time to run and get help.  There are different strengths and styles I carry to fit anyone's taste.  Please look here to see all pepper sprays that I carry.

    Have you ever used pepper spray?  What are some of your concerns with using it?  Let me know if you have any questions.  I am here to help you!

    Stay safe,
