Great question, with no “one size fits all” answer. First, you must determine what situation you’re wanting to protect yourself from. Are you walking from car to store and generally have free access to arm movement? Or, are you exercising and possibly have no storage means?
These are both very different situations and, quite honestly, you can sit and list a multitude of situations that you could possibly find yourself needing protection. So, lets say you are walking from car to store. Generally, access to a pocket would seem probable and thus, having your stun gun, taser gun or pepper gun in your pocket generally makes sense. That is, as long as you come upon your attacker and have a little bit of response time. But, if they jump from behind you and wrap their arms around you demanding you do something, your arms won’t be free to reach into a pocket. So, in this case, a belt mounted holster would probably be more sensible.
As stated, there are a multitude of situations you could find yourself in and there is no “one place” for everyone to carry their weapon. So, you have to give thought to the situation you most likely expect and feel the most vulnerable. Then, imagine where you would have access to and that’s going to be the best place to carry your self defense weapon.
First, Why Not? I mean, if you’re not in a locale where stun guns are restricted, why wouldn’t you carry a stun gun, or at least some form of self defense weapon? With the poor economic conditions getting worse all around the country, crime is spreading at a rapid rate. I was sitting behind our retail store last week getting a little sunshine between customers when a guy approached me and I could tell he was up to no good. Fortunately, I was near our door and I did some quick talking to get away from him and safely inside. But, I had no weapon on me. If he had pulled a knife or even just demanded that I give him my wallet, I might have had to just to keep things smooth.
So, why not carry a stun gun? I mean, let’s say its dark, you’re coming out of the mall or the grocery store or Wal-Mart and someone comes up and demands your purse or wallet. What are you going to do? If you had a stun gun in a holster on your belt or perhaps, in your purse, simply setting off a quick test fire may be all that’s needed to set the mugger running off. While he may not be caught by the police, at least your safe. I can assure you that you have a much better chance of being safe with a good quality stun gun in your hand than you do if you have nothing. And, let’s be real, its not quite comfortable to walk around everywhere with a handgun on your hip. So, in many cases, a stun gun is a much more suitable alternative.

“CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The State Highway Patrol had to use a taser gun on a suspect after a traffic stop led them on a high speed chase.”
Simple message today: If police feel comfortable using a TASER Gun, shouldn’t you?
Yes, there are many self defense weapons out there. But, how many of us truly WANT to kill someone? Most just want to defend what’s rightfully ours. And, many just want to be able to get away safely. So, if you’re wanting to find a self defense weapon that you can feel comfortable with, consider what the police carry.
Most people have not yet heard of the JPX Jet Protector Pepper Gun from Piexon. And, most people who hear of a pepper gun, don’t generally imagine a real weapon like this. But, make no mistake, this is no toy. It is a serious weapon. And, its amazing! There’s not much that comes to market anymore that gets us excited. However, this weapon from Piexon, based in Switzerland, is a serious weapon that causes both fear AND excitement at the same time.
What makes the Jet Protector unique is that its firing is generated by a pyrotechnic charge that causes the blast of spray to shoot out at speeds of just over 400 mph! And, it can shoot just over 20 feet. AND, its generally not affected by wind. Firing one of these units is nothing short of, well, AMAZING. Watch the video below to see more specifically what’s happening. (note: the video was produced by Kimber back when they were they U.S. distributor for these units. And, at that time they only fired at 270mph. So, disregard this spec on the video as current models of the JPX Jet Protector shoot at 405 mph.)
