Rob Pincus and Kelly Muir discuss some of the important things to remember when choosing a tool for personal defense and talk about the advantages of owning and using a Taser or firearm. If you feel like a powerful weapon like a Taser or handgun is right for you, you should always take the steps to become properly trained. Simply owning the tool is not enough to prepare you for a real situation. You should be comfortable with whatever tool you choose, and what may be right for your family member or friend may not be right for you. Don’t feel like you have to use a personal defense tool just because someone puts it in your hand and gives you a brief training. You should feel in control and completely aware of that tool’s capabilities.
