calibre you trust to protect yourself?

Here’s her story:
While out hiking in British Columbia Canada with my husband we were
surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of nowhere.

Priscilla Dang, 23, was targeted by the bike-riding teens while out jogging in Vancouver, Washington.
One of the yobs pulled up in front of her, blocking her path, while the other grabbed her from behind.

But they got more than they bargained for as she quickly sprang into action, drawing on her 18 years of Kung Fu training to teach the boys a lesson.
‘I grabbed [one of the boys] and said, “You need to apologize, and he did”,’ Dang told Katu.com.
The second teen was less willing to admit defeat, however, and began swearing at her.
‘It just made something snap in me – it’s not OK. It’s so disrespectful,’ she said.
She punched the teen twice, square in the face, while skirting his flailing fists.
‘He started coming in for a few, and I was lucky enough to dodge his shots. I came up for another one and I got him good, and I think that upset him,’ she told the news station.
It upset him so much, in fact, that he pulled out a knife, which Dang shielded herself from with his bike, the news channel reported, before deciding to back off.
She escaped without injury and said she thinks she taught the thugs a lesson. ‘I think they knew they messed with the wrong girl,’ she said.
Two witnesses called 911 and one of the attackers, 18-year-old Josiah Sullivan, was arrested.
A younger boy, aged 16, was taken home to his parents and will be judged by a juvenile prosecutor.
Investigators did not find the knife, which Dang said had a four-inch blade.

Never thought about this before but important to know!
I know some of you own GUNS but this is something to think about…
If you don’t have a gun, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you. Did you know this? I didn’t. I never really thought of it before. I guess I can get rid of the baseball bat.
Wasp Spray – 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.” Maybe even save a life.
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse! It will! Good to know, huh? It will also kill a wasp!!!
