About Pepper Spray:
Pepper spray, a weapon used by many people for self-defense is also known as OC spray (from "oleoresin capsicum"), OC gas, and capsicum spray, is alachrymatory agent (a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness) used in policing, riot control, crowd control, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears. Its inflammatory effects cause the eyes to close, taking away vision. This temporary blindness allows officers to more easily restrain subjects and permits people using pepper spray for self-defense an opportunity to escape. Although considered a less-than-lethal agent, it has been deadly in rare cases, and concerns have been raised about a number of deaths where being pepper sprayed may have been a contributing factor. Its small and lightweight packaging also makes it easily portable. Different varieties, both natural and synthetic are available at various strengths.

About Stun Guns:
Stun guns make a great non-lethal self defense weapon that anyone can use. You can also use it in adverse weather conditions when pepper sprays will be ineffective. If the sound and sight of a hot white electric arc aren’t enough to scare an attacker, then the pain of millions of volts of electricity, that even the smallest electroshock guns have, certainly will!
Stun Guns refer to; An electroshock or an incapacitant weapon used for incapacitating a person or beast by administering electric shock aimed at disrupting superficial muscle functions and/or causing pain without significantly hurting the subject.
Multiple types of these devices exist differing by the mode of use. Stun guns, batons (or prods), and belts administer an electric shock by direct contact, whereas Tasers (conducted electrical weapons, CEW) fire projectiles that administer the shock through thin flexible wires. Long-range electroshock projectiles, which can be fired from ordinary shotguns and do not need the wires, have been developed as well.
