I like the high intensity light and sound (sirens and recorded dogs).
I know any kind of canned gas will probably be a disaster for the user. It’s human nature to approach from down wind
(predator instinct) but in a life and death situation, I wouldn’t want to count on that.
I have no problems using deadly force and from first hand experience, I know it works. I also know from first hand experience, people die every day from not resisting and being an easy objective. Armed criminals are not compassionate and they don’t bring implements of death and destruction as ornamentation.
Is there any early warning device that can be trusted? For example, can you set radar
to set off a warning of an approaching boat? How about a swimmer?
One of the key elements of winning a fight is being alert. Most people are not, that’s why they’re easy targets. If you knew in advance there was a boat headed your way in the middle of the night, you’d be on pretty equal terms when it arrived. You’d have time to put your defensive game
plan into action instead of being caught off guard and helpless.
This could be a very productive thread if we put our heads together and think of some reasonable ideas to defend ourselves, family
, friends and ship. I’m interested in alternatives to pulling the trigger.
