Personal safety has never worried me particularly but of late I have been impressed at the range of personal alarms on the market. These range from pepper sprays, high decibel screechers and hand held sirens.
I would favour a micro Uzi for use upon any would be attacker but if I were to try to arm my girlfriend for her protection thusly I would be endangered far before any potential attacker may decide to approach her with any evil intent – hence I prefer the deterrent method.
UZI or personal alarm, the choice is yours.
I quite like the look of the unobtrusive wristwatch styles personal alarm, shown right as in a sticky situation you could be sure have access to it, like in the event of attack or even stuck in a nasty avalanche.
The range of personal alarms is impressive and I certain that one of these could help you out as a victim of crime.
