Women’s Self-Defense – What Type of Weapon Should I Carry?
Perhaps of the most often posed inquiry I get from ladies in my self protection program is, “What sort of self preservation weapon would it be advisable for me I convey?” And the standard response is, “It depends.”

Actually, weapon fails to help you on the off chance that it isn’t in your grasp and prepared to utilize. Most ladies won’t get some margin to prepare with the weapon they purchased so they can become capable with it. Why? Since when you are being gone after, your muscle memory necessities to kick in.
