Do you own or carry anything for self-protection? mace/pepper spray, pocket knife, gun, large stick Stern Smile
Seriously, some of the ladies in my mom's neighborhood who go walking when it's cooler in the evening carry a wooden stick to ward off attackers.

Do you think you could think fast enough to use it?

After an incident yesterday evening, I ordered a pocket knife. And I keep pepper spray on my keychain. Looking back, I could have been smarter and faster with the way I went about things. Luckily, I lived and I learned.

i made a thread last month about safety apps last month.  I hope everyone has at least one of the apps mentioned.  I tried to order a pretty, pink, tazer & mace but they weren't allowed to ship it to me cuz of NY laws.

i like that saying...but damn Jewels! I aint ever running up on you.

No I dont carry a weapon. I wanted to carry mase or a taser gun but those are both illegal in DC. so I stick to making men walk with me at night and avoiding dangerous situations. but ppl are being attacked in broad daylight now smdh

another thing my mom always tells me. It's xmas season and mofos is stealing. they may not be in fashion, but carry a cross the body bag instead of a hand or shoulder bag, especially at big parking lots like the mall and walmart. the latter is easier to grab

I don't have anything on me when I'm out, because DC is so opposed to self-defense rights. At most, I carry a sock full of change and a pocket knife.
 
Be careful with whatever you get. My niece was recently attacked with her own taser gun, then was fined for carrying a taser gun in the first place.
 
I keep everything that would be in my wallet at my boob, and just caary a purse for decoration.

I know this might sound crazy, but I suggest:
 
you also have a very defensive walk/stance. If someone is walking near you and you feel uncomfortable, don't show any fear, spit, start rapping a hard ass rap lyric...anything to show you're not no punk...
 
If you know you're going to be out late at night by yourself, make sure you have on pants/jeans & sneakers or low heel boots just in case you have to fight or run.
 
I also tie my hair up or put a hat on cause an attacker can come up from behind and grab you by your hair.
 
Take your headphones out, and pay attention to your surroundings.
 
If you do have a weapon, keep it ready, even if you don't feel a threat, cause you never know.

See thats my biggest fear--that the weapon I got would be used against me...is your niece OK?

When I used to jog, I kept pepper spray on me.  Used it on a few dogs that came too close for comfort.  I need to get a new mace/pp spray now.

I watch a lot of the I.D. channel
I don't know if it helped or not, but one thing I did was take a good look at home to let him know "hey, i see your face. i can identify you to the police (even though i dont have on my glasses and can't see sh*t)." 
of course that could have backfired, and they may kill you cuz they know you've seen their face. 
so I don't know

if you're not the violent type, you can always use a self defense flashlight or a tactical flashlight to stun or blind. that will give you some time to escape and call for help.

Embarrassed You made my Heart skip a beat.  I just may take yuo up on that.   I remember when I worked for the post office I had access to mace cuz of the dogs, but that was years ago & even the store that used to sell it doesn't sell them anymore.  The one can I have hasn't been sprayed in 12 yrs & idk if it will work todayConfused.  I dont wanna be in a dangerous situation to find out.

My friend just got her license to carry and her gun...now shes almost waiting for someone to "nut up".. I was semi amused and scared at the same time when she said that. I think I have to get more comfortable with a gun before I own one. Im to clumsy and paranoid. But shooting one at the range is one hell of an erotic rush...I even turned it to the side when i let off a fewCool but the guy to me to stopOuch

Have you checked into the Defuser pepper spray? It supposedly deactivates when detached from from its user.

I'm currently looking about a metal baseball bat to keep by my bed
I also want a tazer, but I suspect it might be illegal in my city. I'll double check
Some pepper spray too. I've heard women can pick it up at the police station, but I don't know how true that is.
I currently carry a box cutter, as well as my keys between my index and middle fingers to poke eyes out

I carry a pepper spray keychain I bought off of amazon and put on my keys. I've never practiced whipping it out to see I'd be fast enough if I ever did have to use it. I do know it's strong as hell though since my brother sprayed it in his face and burned his eyes.

This guy gave me a heavy duty flash light and asked me to keep it by my bed at all times. It's easier to grab and use with one hand than a baseball bat.

I used to carry mace all the time but stopped cuz I had to go through scanners at work.

Carry a pen or pencil on you, it's a simple weapon to stab with.

Also remember to have ur keys and phone in hand to throw ur purse far away and run in the opposite direction. Most attackers are after ur possessions.

I  carry tear gas/pepper spray on my keychain and I have another one that looks like lipstick in my purse; also one that looks like penlight in my arm rest in car. I keep a  box cutter in my glove box. (also have  tear gas/pepper spray in several locations around the house)

I used to 'tote' my gun on me but I have started leaving that at home since I'm not out like I used to be, but I think I need to put it back in my purse after some recent incidents.

just a word of caution, if you get tear gas/pepper spray please don't test it out inside to see if it works (like I did). I went into the bathroom downstairs and closed the door and sprayed a TINY bit of the spray the commode, just to make sure I knew how to hit the 'spray button' /practice.
That stuff burned my eyes and throat so bad I had to leave the house. My throat felt like it was closing. It was unbearable. Then, silly me, got the bright idea to turn on the bathroom   exhaust fan to get rid of the gas, and that just circulated it thru the house and made it worse LOL.

It was hilarious, but it taught me that if I do ever have to use this spray on someone, I need to be running while I'm spraying or I will be incapacitated too.  That stuff is powerful!

eta: also if you're into camping, it will supposedly take down a bear too.

I like that sprayer tho because it  says it shoots out 6 feet so you can hit someone before they are close to you (or an animal if necessary). But I need to get some regular mace that I can use at a close distance without harming myself. And add that to the arsenal too lol.

this thread makes me sad.

i carry pepper spray and a switchblade. btw, the one switchblade that is illegal is the one that goes straight out when the button is pressed, the one that goes out in an arc isn't illegal. at least that's how it is in my old state. I have the one that goes straight out. yeah its illegal, but so is the person that's attacking me and i needed to defend myself. i have had to use it once in college, and it made me sick, but the alternative was worse.

i also have some razors in my car. i keep a tire iron in my backseat.

be sure to check under your car too, before you get in. ppl can hide under cars and swipe your achilles heel.

park under lights.

Man it's fukking sad that we as humans have to live this way - on the lookout all the time. I don't even like getting in the car at night.

I envy celebs and their bodyguards. I need one, lol. 


Carrying a weapon you have to be prepared to use it. And that takes a certain type of strength that I don't think I possess. In fact it's like handling your attacker a weapon. What happens when your mind just goes blank. I think I would DIE of shock. 

Humans are dangerous.

this is why I stopped carrying my gun in my purse. Nothing like remembering you have a gun in your purse when you're in a security line. I missed going into the Holocast Memorial museum with my GF and godson at the museum opening because I remembered at almost last minute in the search line, Dang! I have a gun in my purse LOL . *exits line*

PEACE

If you got fam in a state that permits it, have them order and then ship it to you. Wink
 
 

would that be the same as the company shipping it to you? or is that just a risk you have to take?
 
This is how I had to get all my stuff when I lived in Chi.

When I go running in the park I carry a knife. It has a chain around the handle, so I pull the chain over my finger like a ring and grip the handle. I keep the blade opened. I am definitely fast enough to use it, and I'm going straight for the throat to kill.

I don't carry anything else. 

I was leaving the store a few nights ago and a guy followed me out and came right up to my car. Luckily there was a security guard parked next to me because the guy tried to open my car door. 

Maybe I should get some mace...

I WISH a mofo WOULD run up on me!
 
SMH.  I have found that a certain stance is enough to keep even the craziest crazies at bay.
 
But yeah, I'm locked and loaded.  Having been there and done that, I takes no chances.
 
Ya'll need to get a keychain weapon, looks like brass knuckles, but is pointed and sharp.
 
I WISH a mofo WOULD!!!  Talk about sliced and diced! 
 
But , I don't go looking for trouble either.

When I lived in Brooklyn, I carried mace and when I was walking alone at night from the train station I would have my key in my hand so that the sharp part would stick through my knuckles...

Oh, my doors were LOCKED, but he still tried to open it. I wasn't that concerned because the security guard was in the car next to me watching us, so I felt safe for the most part.

I think the guy was high on something because when I saw him in the store, he definitely looked 'off' - his eyes were red and glazed over (he was checking out ahead of me). As I left the store, he was apparently waiting for me because he walked out BEHIND me, even though he had left BEFORE me. He called out to me, but I kept walking. He picked up his pace and just as I heard him coming up more quickly behind me, I saw the security guard's car lights flashing beside my car. As I stepped into my car and closed the door, I immediately hit the 'lock' button, and he was pulling on the door handle.

I really hate that women are prey. If I were with a man I'm sure this wouldn't have happened Sleepy.

Thanks, Southern. I wouldn't hesitate to cut him, though LOL.  Heaven forbid if I'm ever in a situation where I have to protect myself because I don't believe in simply 'disabling'. I believe in killing. It is what it is.
