An East Texas woman says she runs prepared, with pepper spray and an air horn. But, she says it was not enough to fend off an attacker. Early Monday morning, around 5 A.M., the woman ways she was jogging by Bergfeld Park in Tyler, when she was attacked. According to the victim, the suspect hid himself by a wooded area, and then as she jogged by, he attacked her from behind.
The woman told police that the suspect grabbed and forced her to the ground, where he began to touch her inappropriately. With the air horn and pepper spray, the woman managed to flee the scene and contact the Tyler police soon after.
While investigating the case, Tyler police offered a few suggestions for joggers, especially if you are female. First, try to run with someone, and if your schedule doesn't allow that, always let someone know when and where you are going. Second, always fight for your life. Officer Don Martin says, "We definitely recommend that you do whatever it takes to get away from the person. Today, you don't know how far they're going to take it, so you need to fight for your life."

Her encounter with a drunk man at the bus station made my girlfriend very irritated and motivated to have a personal security device immediately. She needed something compact that may be used easily if attacked. I suggested she start with an inexpensive stun gun.
A powerful but reasonably inexpensive stun gun like the Stun Master Hotshot 4.5 Million Volt Stun Gun. It is compact in size yet packs an effective 4.5 million volts of energy which will knock her attacker down instantly.
Once the power blast hits her attacker, he'll lose muscle control, resulting in a short-term incapacitation. This is the effect of neuromuscular disruption, which a stun gun creates once it touches the aggressor. The little neurological impulses which control his voluntary muscle movements are going to be interrupted.
Another inexpensive stun gun that she could acquire for non-lethal personal protection is the Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable Pen Stun Gun. It will drop 1.2 million volts to the attacker's neuromuscular system and knock him out very quickly. It's sleek and compact which makes it a very concealable self defense device that also features a built-in LED flashlight.
She can also select the Stun Master 950,000 Volt Rechargeable Lipstick Stun Gun. One benefit of the gadget is that her attacker will not be able to prepare for it because he'd think that it is just a plain tube of lipstick. It is a length of simply 3 inches and simple to use. The energy is provided by a rechargeable battery so she does not have to purchase additional batteries.
Another inexpensive stun gun to use for personal security is the Stun Master 950,000 Volt Rechargeable Lipstick Stun Gun. Its 950,000 volts of power is more than enough to stop any street thug in an instant. It features a built-in LED flashlight to assist you in areas of poor lighting.
My final suggestion for inexpensive stun guns is the Runt Stun Gun. Available in 2.5, 3.5 and 4.5 million volts, it is a mini stun gun that can provide the optimum self defense against any assailant. Easily concealable inside the hand, it most likely won't even be noticed by an attacker which gives you the element of surprise against the creep.
All these stun guns are perfect for use by any woman who's confronted with a nasty aggressor. Whichever my girlfriend chooses, I know it'll give her the safety in non-lethal personal protection she's seeking.

About pepper spray, it's an excellent choice for a non-lethal self defense weapon. Stun guns and tasers are good, it is just that the effects of pepper spray last much longer. An attacker will find that when they are sprayed they will have difficulty breathing, seeing, choking, and just all around being able to function at all. Not only that, but they will feel like their skin is on fire because of the burning sensation created by the pepper spray.
Another fact about pepper spray is that it's extremely easy to use. Point it at the attackers face and press the button. In addition to the ease of use it is also less expensive and most of the time just as effective. It has the capability of saving your life if you find yourself in a dangerous situation. A lot of women have used it to successfully to get out of a bad situation especially when their alone.
Another point about buying pepper spray is that you can keep your distance from an attacker. With a stun gun you have to be real close and touching him with the stun gun for it to work. The effects of a stun gun will last for several moments as his muscles and nervous system are disabled.
With pepper spray, your attacker will not be able to function effectively for up to a half hour. He will be temporarily blinded, he will be finding it difficult to breath and he will be choking. And, you have done all this without having to get real close to an attacker. You can stay 8 - 10 feet away and the pepper spray will still be effective.
Have you ever tasted a bit of a really hot pepper, maybe on a dare? Most of us remember how our nose started running right away and our eyes teared up and oh my gosh, the burning feeling in our mouth! Well, that is what pepper spray is made from, cayenne pepper. Of course the level of cayenne pepper in pepper spray is much, much higher than in biting into one hot pepper. When sprayed in the face with this self defense spray an attacker will stop thinking about coming after you and try to figure out how to get away from you.
Just imagine rubbing an open hot pepper into your eyes and multiply the effects of that thousand times and you'll get a good idea of what an attacker will experience. His eyes and surrounding skin will swell up and probably shut completely. He will not be able to see, which is a very good thing. That say you can make your escape from the area and he will not be able to pursue or see which way you ran to escape the creep.
The effects described about pepper spray might seem scary but don't worry about causing any permanent damage to an attacker. Sure, he is going to be very uncomfortable for awhile but so what. The effects start to wear off after about 45 minutes. As far as I know, no one has ever died from being hit with pepper spray.
Bottom line is that pepper spray is an effective, excellent choice when buying self defense product. It works and it is the least expensive personal protection device that you can get. Effective, inexpensive and easy to use. Making everything about pepper spray an excellent choice as a non-lethal self defense weapon for women.
