Do you think pepper spray is enough? What about holding or carrying a taser?

Thanks for your opinions.

    freeze +p made a believer out of me when I was certified with it years ago. a taser lasts 5 seconds and is effective, however imagine your eyes burned shut, your face on fire , and having asthma. that's what OC and CS in a spray can will do to you. be aware that spray usually takes 3-6 seconds to set in so stay moving.

    I have a Leo buddy where he is issued a taser. According to him and his co workers they will not use a taser in the winter. They get caught in coats and jackets and are not reliable enough. In the summer when people are wearing less clothing they tend to work more consistently. Just what I have heard though.

    From my experience with LEO, tasers are extremely effective; however, I believe in Freeze + P as well. It is the best spray on the market. It also has more lasting effects because when wiped away it still works. Sometimes, tasers must be utilized various times and the spray only needs one solid blast.

    There are a few great options, holster wise, for runners. Always carry your gun.
