    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.

    The UNR community has experienced several public safety issues recently that have led to some fear and concern. UNR and the Reno Police Department are working diligently to solve these crimes. TMCC and its police department are sensitive to these concerns. The TMCC Police Department has a limited number of safety whistles available at its reception desk in RDMT 241; the whistles are available at no charge. The department ordered more whistles and will make them available to students, faculty and staff as soon as the whistles arrive."

    My wife is a UNR student who takes night classes, and also has her CCW. We're both extremely upset about this lack of protection being offered and solutions provided. In her first class yesterday, one of the professors actually suggested students carry a ski pole.
    A whistle!!!

    We are truly becoming a nation of idiots. What if the BG pulls a bigger whistle on you? Now you are toast.

    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.

    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.

    I mean, goon comes up, pulls a skinning knife and tells her to get in the van. Is pulling out a pocket knife and going 1 on 1 really a believable scenario? Better than no option at all, but not by much.
    Actually, its much better. The psychology of the attacker is important- he won't be looking for a fight; he's looking to intimidate and dominate. If the "victim" is armed, and uses a strategic retreat, the BG won't have a choice but to run. I've never worked on or spoken with a rapist who got excited at the thought of getting gigged... Now a druggie looking for a score is a different matter, but...

    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...

    Oh dear, that was a joke right? Everybody should be carrying the maximum weaponry they can on campus. OC and a knife.

    The rest would show up and blow their whistles too, and if enough do that maybe it will break the BG's ear drums, or at least give'um a head ache. Can you carry a BUW????
