Are you a runner or runner? If so, do you carry a personal defense weapon with you on jogging trails? If your answer is no, why not? It just makes sense. We have always been told not to run at night and to never run alone. But what if you work odd hours and don’t have a running partner? Or maybe your job situation doesn’t allow you to work during the day.
You are at risk when running alone in dark or dimly lit areas. A female runner is seen as a prime target for someone looking for someone to assault or rape. A runner may be tired or out of breath and as such may be seen as an easy victim.
Here are some options that are good options for runners and brokers. Which security product is good for you?
1. Pepper Spray Jogger
Pepper spray can not only be used on human attackers, but is also an effective, non-lethal dog repellant.

- Can be carried hands-free.
- Carry it on your keychain.

- Comfortable foam covered grips.
- Easily clean with soap and water.
3. Dwarven Stun Gun
4.5 million volts
The energy stored in the Runt Stun Gun makes your muscles work very quickly, which depletes the blood sugar you need for energy. It also interrupts the neurological impulses that control the movement of voluntary muscles, which in turn causes loss of balance.
Runt Gun Features:
- The Runt is a very powerful stun gun.
- It can be easily hidden.
- It fits easily in the hand of a woman or a man.
- It can be carried in your hand or in your pocket.
- Use it as a pager.
- Provides almost invisible protection.
4. Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun
This Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun is not only rechargeable but also has a flashlight! It’s a mini stun gun, only 3″ x 3/4″. It is disguised to look like a tube of lipstick. It is very unique and completely portable. No matter what bag you carry, it will accompany you wherever you go.
- There is a built-in rechargeable battery.
- It also includes an integrated charger.
- There are two buttons under the cover, one for the stun gun and one for the flashlight.
- It has a deactivation pin – wear the wristband around your wrist. It plugs into the bottom of the stun gun. As a safety measure, the disable pin will come out if the stun gun is removed. This will prevent the stun gun from being operational.
These are only four options currently available. It doesn’t really matter if you go for the Pepper Spray Jogger, the Mace Walking Weights, the Runt Stun Gun, or the Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun. The important thing is to protect yourself from damage when running or jogging. If you don’t, you’re vulnerable and asking for trouble. We all know that staying physically fit is important, but we often forget that our personal safety is just as important.
Security is not expensive, it is priceless!
