There are literally thousands of self-defense items on the market today for female self-defense. They all work well providing a nonlethal alternative to the deadly force of a handgun for personal security. They range from cheap panic alarms to expensive tasers.All of these self-defense items work a little differently from each other but they all provide the user time to escape a potentially dangerous situation by disabling an assailant or drawing attention to your situation.Stun guns are second only to pepper sprays in terms of popularity. They work by sending a powerful electrical charge that is provided by batteries inside a hand-held device with two or more prongs on one end. When the prongs touch an assailant the electricity causes the muscles to overwork very rapidly. This rapid work depletes blood sugars needed for energy. It is a very effective self-defense item especially for female self-defense and personal security.Guard Dog brand stun devices are among the most popular of all stun guns on the market today. Part of the reason is they are among the most powerful and yet are relatively inexpensive compared to similar voltages.
