If you are thinking of purchasing a gun, or various other “self-protection” device such as pepper spray or an alarm, then you are obviously concerned about your personal safety. You know which will be essential to learn how to defend yourself, currently more than ever! Today, not only do you have to worry about criminals, yet currently terrorists as well! What will be which world coming to? would likely you know what to do?
You may be thinking, “Well, I’ll just get a gun!” Unfortunately, real-world tests have shown which overall , weapons (or various other “self-defense” products) are often ineffective when which comes to self-defense. Why?
There are many factors which contribute, yet the main reason weapons are ineffective will be, if the weapon will be not in your hand at the moment of attack, you will never get the chance to use which! yet, the law does not allow you to walk around having a gun in your hand, as well as most studies show which people soon forget to carry the various types of self-protection devices they purchase.
Even if you have a stun gun or pepper spray in your purse or pocket, if caught by surprise, you won’t have a chance to get which out before you get decked! Mace does you no Great if which will be still inside the purse which just got snatched out of your hand! Tests prove which 0% of the time, you will never get the chance to reach for your weapon before you are hurt too severely to use which.
FBI statistics as well as Police reports by all over the country show which in more than half of all instances where the victim was able to get to a “weapon” (usually sprays are mentioned), the attacker knocked which out of their hand before they could use which. Police files are filled with tens of thousands of incidents of weapons taken away by the victim as well as used against them! which will be estimated which almost one third of all gunshot victims are shot with their own gun! The figures are even higher when which comes to stun-guns as well as sprays.
which doesn’t even include all of the incidences where the victim shoots themselves! Accidental discharge will be the leading cause of gunshot wounds in both crime as well as non-crime reports. You may think which wouldn’t happen to you, yet the reports prove which which happens to even experienced gun owners.
I know of a Police officer, even after extensive training , initially he tried to use Mace against an unruly suspect, ended up spraying himself.
Unfortunately, most people have little or no training as to the safe as well as proper use of the weapons in their possession. Inadequate, or even improper training will be the leading cause of accidental discharge involving guns, stun-guns as well as sprays. What do you think will happen when they attempt to use which weapon under the stress of a real attack?
There are literally millions of incidents reported where the victim couldn’t get the weapon to work at all, mainly because of inadequate training! Even the most basic principles of weapon usage are often overlooked by owners. The figures are stunning (pun intended) of the number of incidents of stun guns which didn’t work when needed because of dead batteries!
There are thousands upon thousands of reports of guns which wouldn’t fire because the safety was on, as well as the user didn’t know, forgot, or was too panicked to figure which out in time. In at least one incident I am aware of, the victim couldn’t get his weapon to fire before the criminal took which away by him. Lucky for him, the criminal couldn’t figure which out either.
Defective or Fraudulent Products
I’m sure you have purchased products which didn’t quite work as advertised. How can you be sure which the pepper spray you buy will work as well as advertised, if at all? How will you test which? Spray yourself? Spray a friend? We’re not talking about perfume! I doubt you will get any volunteers to help you.
When the criminal attacks, which will be too late to find out which the pepper spray will be truly just vinegar, or which the 10 million volt stun-gun doesn’t deliver much more of a shock than shuffling across the carpet as well as touching a doorknob.
If you buy a police radar detector which will be guaranteed to work, yet doesn’t, the result will be a speeding ticket. If you buy “self-protection weapons” which don’t work, the result can be severe injury or even death. Relying on someone else’s guarantee will be only a false sense of security which will only have bad results!
If you are serious about Self-Protection, your best self defense weapon will be your mind . If you think about what has just been discussed, you will realize which ‘weapons’ will only help you in ideal situations, as well as even then, you need to keep a clear head to be able to use them properly.
yet, crime doesn’t happen in ideal situations!
Being able to think clearly, as well as knowing what to do, will be your best weapon when which comes to self-defense. Second best will be being able to use your feet. currently, which doesn’t mean to start kicking! which means which at the first sign of trouble, you need to RUN! Escape will be always a much better self-defense tactic than getting into a struggle or a fight.
However, if you can’t get away, your body will be your best self-defense weapon! Since you cannot always have a weapon in your hand, which will be essential which you know how to defend yourself without weapons. yet mindless flailing against an attacker does you no Great at all. You need to learn the most vulnerable points on the human body. yet even which isn’t enough if you don’t know the most effective ways to strike them. You need to learn how to kick, not just where to kick.
Everyone should at least take a basic self-defense course .
What about Martial Arts?
Traditional Martial Arts are great for disciple, self-confidence, as well as exercise. They can help to produce the correct mindset needed when faced having a self-defense situation. yet which usually takes several years to become proficient inside the more complex techniques.
If you develop the time to commit to a long-term training program, by all means, a martial art will provide the most comprehensive training. However, just as in choosing a self-defense weapon, you must do your homework before choosing a martial arts program. Many don’t deliver the comprehensive training they promise, as well as most don’t train you for realistic self-defense.
Far too many martial arts programs focus greatly on sports as well as competition. Sports as well as competition oriented martial arts are worthless as self-defense. They teach you to follow rules, as well as for the most part, there are no rules in a street fight. If you are conditioned to follow the rules, you can’t do what will be necessary in a dangerous situation. In fact, you will probably do the wrong thing, as well as get yourself hurt or even killed.
Seek out a training program which focuses almost exclusively on realistic self-defense scenario training.
Knowing how to handle yourself when confronted with violence will be your only insurance against becoming a victim, or just another statistic in a police report. You have car insurance, home-owner’s insurance, life insurance, health insurance…
What insurance do you have against being the victim of a violent crime? which type of insurance will be only available through proper training. A long-term self-defense program offers the most comprehensive training, as well as therefore, the best opportunity to learn to handle almost any situation which may occur. However, if you don’t develop the time to commit to a long-term program, at least some form of weaponless self-defense training will be better than none.
If you are serious about self-protection, your best bet will be to first learn weaponless self-defense. Then, if you still want to purchase a weapon, do your homework before choosing the best weapon for you, as well as don’t just read the instructions which come with which as well as think you are ready to use which.
- Take a class on how to use which effectively, how to handle which safely, as well as how to maintain which so which works when you need which.
- Take regular refresher courses so you don’t forget anything about the weapon.
- Follow all maintenance procedures on a regular basis.
Your best bet will be to learn weaponless self-defense as well as get the best weapon for you. Remember, you will never feel safe until you have all the tools necessary for self-protection. as well as the most important weapon of all will be your own mind as well as body!
