Wow, a whistle, do you need a permit to use one of those? I would rather use my 1911 to ward of BGs then a whistle, imagine that.
Please don't construe the following rant as justification for the disproportionate use of force:
This sort of thing is seriously irritating. The libs are constantly offering these sorts of solutions. "Use a whistle, or a personal alarm." Blah blah blah. Have these people gotten so panty-waisted that they don't even want to consider doing violence to people who will rape and murder?
Ok, I feel better now.

This is becoming a pretty common response to problems. They did the same thing here:whistlestop
This is just sad.
How and when to use your whistle
You are confronted on the street
1. Cooperate. It's safer for you.
2. BLOW YOUR WHISTLE when physically safe. Others: respond and call the police.
You fear trouble on the street
1. Run toward the middle of the street.
2 BLOW YOUR WHISTLE. Others: respond and call the police.
You observe trouble on the street
1. BLOW YOUR WHISTLE to scare off the assailant
2. Keep at a safe distance.
3. KEEP BLOWING. Stay until the police arrive.
You observe trouble from your home or car or you hear a whistle
1. Call police fast. State clearly address and description of the incident observed.
2. Open your window and BLOW YOUR WHISTLE.
3. Go outside, move toward first whistle and KEEP BLOWING.
4. Assist victim if possible, and stay until the police arrive.
So this is the equivalent of sheep bleating loudly while the wolves tear into them.

That's just sad, the whole thing. Well, no the comments about the bigger whistles and hi-cap whistles are hilarious, but the rest, especially TyC's note about the whistlestop.......it just gets worse every day.
To the OP, and his wife: collapsible baton. Stun gun. Kubaton. Ski pole. All of them, if possible, strapped on a vest. That would have a deterrent effect, if nothing else.
Maybe a collar, bracelet, and vests with spikes on them.
Thing outside the box of "gun" (because I'm sure they have one of those idiotic "no guns" and probably the more idiotic "no weapons" policies) but a little more than whistle. Hatchet, maybe? Get an over-the-shoulder "messenger bag" with an open-top pocket close to the body. Get a 7 dollar hatchet at Wal-Mart, grind the edge sharp, put some pine pitch on it, slide it in there. Put some wood chips in the pocket. If discovered, she can say she brought the back on your last camping trip and completely forgot it was in there. (not that I've done that before, or anything)
Whatever she has to to stay safe.
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

a knife is better than nothing. better then a whistle. and as for 1 on 1 with 200 pound guy once again its better than nothing. or you can just let her take the chance with the whistle.
maybe you can throw the whistle in his eye.
your options are very limited. either safety in numbers, mma expert, or a weapon.
dont jump on my case for helpin out. even a tazer could work.
"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it."
Fixed blades are better, Spyderco and Benchmade make some nice little 3"ers. Mark Goldsworthy ( Mark Goldsworthy Knives ) makes nice customs, at a reasonable price.
I ain't gonna hang around and watch some crime and blow my whistle. I may have to do some paper work if so. I am gonna head the other way, turn my head and go. Don't snitch is my motto, just like on TV. Besides, they probably deserve what they get...
Liberals...gotta love em..
I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..
Sad part is, people actually believe the whistle will work.
