Importance of Personal Safety

How important is your personal safety on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being "Not Very Important" and 5 being "Extremely Important". This is the question I posed to a group of college aged kids that I met with today.

Guess what, everyone in the room said that their personal well being was Extremely Important. I responded, Then why don't you start acting like it! The fact is that most of us claim that personal safety, home security and self defense are extremely important, yet we do nothing to help ourselves.

If I can convince you to do one thing today, it would be to take a proactive approach to personal safety. Get yourself a good self defense pepper spray product. Learn how to use it and what to expect when you do. Practice until your comfortable. Carry it with you wherever you go and make sure it is highly accessible.

By doing this you just improved your chances of surviving an attack. I realize that the perfect self defense product is not the same for everyone. So what works for me may not be your cup of tea and that's fine because you will find the product that works best for you.

Stun guns have become extremely popular among civilians. Technology enhancements have reduced costs while increasing dependability. The newest stun guns sport very high voltage and low amperage, coming into contact with a stun gun will make an attacker see stars. If your budget allows the C2 Taser is an excellent self defense weapon. Items such as steel batons, kubotans, and personal alarms all make great self defense products.

I encourage you to research the products and determine what works best for you. Once you determine the best weapon(s) for you, make a commitment to learn how to use it. That means practicing with whatever product(s) you choose. No matter what, I hope you will take action today.
