There has been a huge surge in the number of people that are carrying firearms and it’s not the people you would originally have thought. A friend of mine has recently picked up her CCW this year and was shocked at the type of people that were applying with her. Almost 75% of the people applying on the day she was, were all women. There seems be me very good science telling us that crime is up the upswing in certain parts of the Country and Mob type attacks have been occuring in Philadelphia on some of the weakest people. Recent attacks were on retired individuals and sometimes didn’t even see the threats coming, others have been on small businesses.
Now that the .380 pistol is so popular, many people that understand the ballistics of the weapon will tell you that this is not something with a lot of energy and if you want to immediately incapacitate a threat, you probable should consider a taser. Tasers can more more cumbersome to carry, but Sabre Defense Pepper sprays are still very good backup options. Actually, I take that back, they are really a primary defense. For liability reasons, carrying small pepper spray can be a way to avoid the legal ramifications of using a firearm, especially after what happend in Florida, I wonder what would have been the outcome if pepper spray was used.
