There are plenty of reasons to consider carrying a firearm for self defense, but once you educate yourself on how effective firearms are in self defense, you’ll realize why sometimes tasers and batons are more effective in close ranges than wondering if a 124gr Gold Dot is going to shut down a bad guys central nervous system. I have seen one stop shots and I’ve seen nut jobs on PCP take shots to the head and still keep coming. Pepper sprays don’t always incapacitate and even tasers can miss or not work.
I’ve been a big proponent of pushing people that carry firearms to also educate themselves on modern first aid and to also consider carry less lethal options as well as firearms. Many of the CCW clothing and tactical apparel we sell makes carry flashlights, knives, pepper sprays and firearms very easy so why not consider something like the Kimber Pepper Blaster something you should consider carrying as a primary self defense weapon, with less liabilities of using deadly force, and has an effective shelf life of about 5yrs.
