Sadly, this story does not always have a happy ending as statistics indicate approximately 78% of rape and sexual assault victims are female, and only 22% of them are male. By utilizing mace for personal safety reasons, you have an excellent tool for self-defense in dangerous situations that could leave you vulnerable to attack.

Mace is available in the form of an aerosol spray and can cause disorientation with tearing of the eyes. While the duration of the effects varies based on the individual, the effects typically last from thirty minutes to two hours, depending on the treatment and person.

There are many reasons why using mace can be beneficial, and below are some of these reasons:

* It Is Small And Compact

People have no use for weapons that do not fit in their pockets or bags; therefore, you need to locate something that can be easily stored and pulled out of a bag or pocket within seconds.

* It Is Safe For The User

It can be difficult for the user to inflict harm on themselves when using a can of mace. This cannot be said when considering knives, firearms, and other dangerous weapons.

* It Is Cost-Effective

For less than $20, it is possible to buy a defense item that can potentially save your life.

* It Is Effective

When using the mace correctly, you can cause injury to your attacker within a split second. The attacker's eyes will be shut because of the burning sensation in them, as well as across his or her face. While the attacker is coughing or choking, this will provide you with time to run away.

Of course, this is provided that you opt for a high-quality brand of mace and utilize it correctly. Below is a brief guideline of how to use mace as a self defense mechanism:

1. Use The Element Of Surprise

Never announce to the attacker that you have mace in your pocket or bag. If you can sense danger, like if you are walking down a darkened alley, then it is recommended that you pull the mace from your bag and be prepared for any attack.

2. Release The Safety Cover And Place Your Thumb On The Canister's Button

3. Spray The Attacker

Once facing an attacker, it is necessary to spray him or her in the eye area before being grabbed. Be sure that you are aware of the mace's capacity as some can reach distances of approximately ten feet. Of course, many considerations need to be taken into account to determine the distance at which the mace can spray, such as direction and wind power. Many people spray the attacker when close, but not too close for the attacker to take the mace from their hands.

4. Spray In Short Bursts

It is recommended that you spray the mace in short bursts and not one long one, you should not extend your arm, keep the spraying hand close to your chest but not too close. Once your attacker is on the ground, you have a chance to run away.
