Okay ladies, I have a question to pose for you. I'm slowly working on getting my mom into having tools at her disposal to protect herself. She's not against guns by any means, though she does live in California and is a democrat. She doesn't have the financial means to acquire a gun at this moment, maybe in a couple months. So we thought spray would be a good place to start. Better than nothing, right? And we agreed that I would send her a couple OC sprays and that she would carry one as much as possible (forgetful mom at times). And she asks me "Where am I going to carry it, in my purse?" I thought about that for a moment, and I told her "you know, I wouldn't carry it in a purse if I was a female, because it's just not accesible enough in a quick moment of danger and panic and could be the first thing ripped away from you." And she would panic. So she agreed that the purse might not be the best place for it. She works in a bank, and her clothing does not consist of attire that has a belt on it most of the time. Therefore, how is a female, in this case my mother, supposed to carry a small canister of OC spray on her person when a purse is out of the question and there might not be a belt in the equation? Tips, suggestions, ideas, will all be forwarded to her. THANK YOU!!!
