Sometimes you can’t legally carry a firearm, or don’t have the justification to use one in self-defense. Police officers also need reliable devices to turn to if deadly force isn’t fully justified. In those situations, a less-lethal option like pepper spray or a Taser makes sense, as you can at least slow an attacker down and buy yourself some time to escape. Like firearms manufacturers, companies that specialize in making less lethal gear are constantly innovating and evolving, and we’ve done our best here to gather some of the best pieces of less lethal gear out there to help you protect yourself and your loved ones.
