The Best Personal Self-Defense Product For Women With assaults, robberies, carjacking, domestic violence and other crimes being committed against women in a 9 to 1 margin over men, is it any wonder that women need more personal self-defense than men? Self-defense and self-defense products have become a big issue with women who are becoming more mobile in our society. Did you know, for example, that there are more women in college than men? Did you know that more women are in professional schools than men? Let's face it guys, women are on the move and their personal defense is more in their mind then you may you realize. That is why self-defense products like stun guns, pepper sprays and personal alarms are more popular now than ever before. Pepper sprays are the most widely sold product for personal defense in the world. They work very well at incapacitating an assailant for up to 45 minutes. Pepper spray uses the resin of a powerful, hot pepper as the base for the spray. It causes a searing, burning sensation on the face, intense tearing of the eyes so badly that the eyes may actually shut. It can also cause coughing, shortness of breath and some rather crude language coming from the assailant's mouth. Stun guns are also very effective, second only to pepper sprays in popularity. They use an electrical charge to short-circuit the body's muscular system causing it to over work very rapidly. Stun guns can incapacitate an assailant for up to 10 minutes. Both of these products are relatively inexpensive with pepper sprays starting as low as $5.00 and stun guns as low as $20.00. But cost shouldn't be a factor when it comes to personal self-defense. Stun guns and pepper sprays are both, on average, close to 90% effective. Is that good enough for your personal defense? Do you want to be protected only 90%? What is the best personal self-defense product on the market? There is no doubt that it is the taser. You have to look no further than your local police department. Over 16,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States and seven or more foreign countries carry tasers for law enforcement use. As part of their continuum of force, tasers provide a nonlethal alternative to deadly force with effectiveness of close to 100%. For women the C2 Taser is the best personal self-defense they can have. Tasers have more stopping power than a handgun. They use low-voltage and high wattage to disable an assailant with incredible efficiency. The cartridge, which is propelled by compressed nitrogen, shoots out two small probes that are attached to insulated wires that conduct electricity. The power of the shot can go through two cumulative inches of clothing with a range of up to 15 feet.
