    what about bear spray

    Currently on a trip from SC to northeast and it is obvious that having a firearm is a fruitless exercise in not following the laws of several states for gun carry concealed or even in car. Even in SC, there are sufficient restrictions that do not exactly make it the easiest or most lawful way to protect one's self.---ie evening dinner in restaurant that serves alcohol prohibits my CC. For self defense with a bit of distance involved, I have thoughts about carrying a cannister of bear spray. Any thoughts? Always the possibility of a taser but they are a little more "complicated" cost wise etal.

    Check the state laws about carrying of the spray and the tazers because some states outlaw the for carry.

  5. The only thing allowed in NYS is small, nondisguised 10% pepper spray.

    Choose a table way at the back of the restaurant near the exit. You'll be right, mate!

  7. Go with a good, streaming pepper spray, preferably one with a hard plastic case that can be used as a yawara stick or impact weapon.
    Be aware that legality of size and potency of pepper sprays varies among states.
    Also, get involved with a good hand-to-hand system designed for combat, not sports. One need not be a black belt to defend themselves effectively.

    When I sit, I always sit with my back to the wall watching the front door, life is short no reason to make it shorter.

    Also check out "Pepper Guns". Some brands come with water-based "practice" cartridges so you can get comfortable with the usage and effectiveness etc. I even think Kimber makes one. And +1 to checking the laws, some states and localities have very strict laws on non-lethal weapons and their usage/ concealment.
