In the modern world, there is an increase in criminality in society and, as a result, an increasing desire of people to defend themselves on their own. For this, various means of self-defense are purchased - however, it is rather difficult to buy some of them without the appropriate certificate. What means of self-defense are available to absolutely all citizens?
Permitted types of protection
According to the law, among the means of active defense allowed for use by law enforcement agencies include stun guns and rubber truncheons. The civilized population can also use gas cartridges, gas pistols and weapons with rubber bullets, which not everyone can buy. With the provision of the appropriate permission and certificate, citizens can purchase such a means of self-defense ?, as a Russian-made pistol "Wasp", which has a traumatic and sound effect.
The use of stun guns in Russia is a completely legal and very popular form of self-defense.
Upon obtaining a license to carry weapons, a citizen can purchase smooth-bore firearms with traumatic cartridges and barrelless firearms with gas, light-sound and traumatic cartridges. Gas revolvers, aerosol and mechanical dispensers, and devices equipped with irritants or tears are available from gas weapons. All of the above self-defense means must comply with the norms of the Russian Ministry of Health and the state standards of the Russian Federation.
Why do not need help
The most affordable and simple means of self-defense are tear gas cans, which can neutralize an attacker for a few minutes. They fit easily in your purse and hand, which makes them extremely convenient to use. However, in a headwind and indoors, spray cans are not only useless, but also dangerous.
Gas cartridges that release a gas cloud rather than a narrow, targeted jet are more effective when attacking multiple people.
Also, for self-defense, you can purchase brass knuckles and heavy boots equipped with iron inserts. Dosed aerosol spraying devices, electroshock devices, sports air guns and carbon fiber knives are great for self-defense. Pneumatics protects much better than traumatics, but it must be able to use it in order to be able to qualitatively neutralize the enemy, frightening him with the presence of supposedly firearms. All that is required to acquire the above means of self-defense is a passport of a citizen who has reached the age of majority.
