Protect Yourself

Wasp Spray or Pepper Spray for Protection

Posted on June 14, 2012

If you don’t have (or want) a gun, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s
evil plans for you.
A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned
about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were
counting the collection. She asked the local police department about
using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray
instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot
more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you
and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until
they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the
office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray
would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was
interesting and might be of use.
On the heels of a break in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo
dead, self defense experts have a tip that could save your life.
Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School .
For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your
door or bed. Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.”
Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or
pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so, if someone tries to
break into your home, Glinka says “spray the culprit in the eyes”. It’s a tip
he’s given to students for decades.
It’s also one he wants everyone to hear. If you’re looking for protection,
Glinka says look to the spray. “That’s going to give you a chance to call the
police; maybe get out,” and maybe even save a life.
Please share this with all the people in your life.

Also heard it suggested to keep a can in your car under your seat.
