Millions of Americans every year are victims of dog bites mostly from dogs roaming around loose in violation of local leash laws. Close to five million of them are bitten that we know of. Many more go unreported. Close to one million of them require hospitalization. It is a growing problem across the country.
I get more emails and phone calls about this than any other single topic by far if that tells you anything.
Aside from using common sense when approaching a strange dog what is the best defense against dog bites? I used to carry the telescopic stun baton on my daily walk and it saved me on two occasions. Anymore I carry the mace pepper gun for the best long range defense against dog attacks and dog bites.
It is easy to carry and very effective with a full dose of 10 percent concentration of oleoresin capsicum or OC spray as it is called. It has the best range of all self defense products at 25 feet. In independent tests done it is the most accurate of all defensive sprays.
It uses replaceable cartridges that are easy to load. The unit comes with a water test cartridge so you can practice and get used to the range. And you have a choice of four fashionable colors.
A ten percent solution of OC will cause excessive tearing in humans to the point of shutting the eyes. This is accompanied by extreme pain, choking, coughing and shortness of breathe.
Don’t be intimidated by a charging dog any more. Walk, cycle or jog in freedom and carry the best defense against dog bites-the Mace pepper gun.
When are you getting one?
If you think crime can only happen to the other guy you are wrong. The “other guy” is thinking the same thing and to him you are that “other guy”. There is a reason why they call it self defense. You have to protect yourself, your family, your home and business!!
Chances are if you are reading this that crime has touched your life in some way or you consider yourself at risk. Take the next step and do something to protect yourself! Your life and safety is worth far more than the cost of one of these.
A 10% solution of OC spray is illegal in some jurisdictions. So check the internet or your local sheriff’s department first before getting some. BOLA TANGKAS
