    Plus a fine cane can make you feel like a sir.

    Ha ha ha, I got a good laugh out of that one.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    I used to think so, but 2 of my 3 dogs go after a laser just as aggressively as any cat I've seen. One of them will keep "hunting" for that green or red dot for a few hours after I've put it away.

    Better yet carry a cannister of bear spray. Good to 30 ft and will stop a grizzly. No ifs ands or buts--just a face of agony teaching a dog or any 2 legged dog a real lesson.
    PS: Most states have limits on amounts in cannisters, which is why all you tend to see are those little lipstick size units. I've asked prosecutors about the larger bear spray cannister and their answer has always been "don't worry about it---if you can stop any kind of attack with something other than a firearm, it is commendable.

    Strobe light is particularly disorienting to animals.

    I have a dozen strobe flashlights (high,low, strobe, etc) and they are genuinely hard to deal with when you are on the receiving end.

    It pays to practice with strobes with friends (humans), and with dogs at low light (just walk through your neighborhood and you'll find some).
    It doesn't harm anyone, and you get to see how the effect is.

    Less lethal weapons are always welcome in my pocket, especially if they are small. Or female.

    I always have my Streamlight ProTac 2L in my pocket, it's a very small flashlight that puts out a lot of light. The strobe has worked well to fend off dogs as well as Boy Scouts trying to snag food from the Adults cooler...

    Just picked up a Fury myself a couple of weeks back. It is an absolutely phenomenal flashlight. Glad it deterred the dog for you.

    I've heard good things about the 2L. I just ordered two. One for the wife and one for me. The Fenix TK15 I carry is going to be the nightstand light when my 2L comes in.

    Now days, there is no excuse to not have a good 250+ lumen flashlight. A JetBeam BA20 is $40 or less. . There are many choices out there in the sub $50 category.

    I always have a light with me, even in the day time. You never know when you will need a good flashlight.
    I have a SureFire G2X Pro 15/200 lumens great little light. I just bought the G2X Pro and then they release the fury. Oh well I'll have to get me a fury later.

    I had to shoot a human once (in the chest) and he put up a big fuss trying to avoid getting a laser in his eyes...I didn't shoot till the laser was between his nipples.

    One shot and he fled w/ a copper slug in his chest. Never caught the guy.

    Cops showed about 5 minutes after the show was over.
