To be or not to be?
In New Mexico, the question is red or green? (referring to the chile)
In Chicago it’s the Cubs or White Sox?
Okay so maybe it doesn’t rank up there with those lofty questions, but people ask me all the time which is better a stun gun or pepper spray. Here is a comparison of stun guns and pepper spray using criteria that most people would consider before making a purchase.
COSTPepper Sprays are less expensive but require refills or replacement. Stun Guns need new batteries occasionally. Pepper Sprays can run from$12.95 – $29.95. Stun Guns from $22.00-$79.95.
EASE OF USE—Both are equally easy to use.
AIMING —Pepper Spray requires some skill and can be effected by wind and rain. With Stun Guns aim is not an issue.
CLOSENESS TO TARGET—Pepper Spray 6-18 feet; Stun Guns have to be right on the target.
LEGAL LIMITATIONS—Pepper Spray is legal in all states but some cities and states have restrictions. Stun Guns are illegal in some states. Check your local police or sheriff’s department for specifics.
LASTING DAMAGE—Neither Pepper Spray nor Stun Guns...
