One thing we also love to keep in our handbag at times is the GTM RFID Pouch, the perfect companion for your bag that provides ample protection to ensure your personal information is safe.
Choose your means of protection.
Empowering yourself with the right tools is crucial for personal safety. In your Gun Tote’n Mamas bag, you can have a wide variety of self-defense tools at your disposal. One way to be confident in your safety - be prepared. Let’s start off with some non-lethal self-defense tools you can carry in your bag.
Pepper Spray: Pepper spray provides a way to temporarily stop a threat and allow the user to escape physical harm. As an ideal, non-lethal option for self-defense, one cannot build a tolerance to pepper spray, so it will remain effective no matter how many times someone is hit by it. Make sure to read ALL of the instructions on your chosen pepper spray and make sure you PRACTICE how to use it.
Personal Alarms: Personal alarms also offer an additional layer of security, particularly in life-threatening situations. Personal alarms are utilized to either intimidate an attacker, or alert those nearby that you are in distress, increasing the likelihood of assistance.
Tactical Flashlight: Bright and blinding lights are not only useful fir illuminating dark areas, but also serve as an effective tool for personal protection. A tactical flashlight can temporarily blind attackers and help you navigate your surroundings if you find yourself in a low-lit area.
