Personal defense is not always a firearm. Depending on the location, situation, clothing or venue, a pistol, a combat folder or even a pocketknife may not always be right for carrying concealed. That’s why we’re bringing you this roundup of the less-lethal gear. These tools can be used in defensive situations to stop or prevent an attack. Even though each of these devices is designed to be less-lethal (we’ve listed no blades longer than 1.5 inches), please verify with the TSA prior to attempting to transport any of them in carry-on luggage and with local law enforcement to ensure hassle-free carry.
