Online, stun guns can be bought for under 15 dollars if you get a lower powered one or find a good sale. Pepper spray can be bought for 10 bucks or
less. Streetwise telescopic batons can be found for under 20. They aren't as nice as the ASP brand, but when you flick those batons out they make
people think twice.
Or you can get a NEBO CSI Tactical model flashlight. You can easily find them for under 20 bucks. They have 8 LED lights and a laser pointer, and
they're made of metal. They're great for temporarily blinding an attacker, even in daylight. The ends have a strike bezel on them, which is
essentially just a specially shaped ridge that makes it hurt more if you smash it into the side of an attacker's skull.
They don't have the lumen output of a 300 dollar Surefire, but I've looked into my NEBO before and it *hurts.* And mine isn't even the tactical
A few other advantages are that you can fit them in your pocket, and you can easily get away with taking them just about anywhere since it is
just a flashlight. Heck, even the UK citizens could probably get away with carrying one of these around.
