I do some back country hiking and recent events have shown that even public places aren't safe around here. I've given it a LOT of thought, and I believe when I go hiking alone, I'd like to have an equalizer with me. I took a self defense class a couple years ago and what I learned is that I'm not nearly as rough or tough as I think I am in my mind. In fact, I couldn't knock down a 98 pound weakling. So, with that memory in mind, I think it's wise to get some training beyond what I already have and be prepared for any potential threat to me.
I'm pretty modest in my personal means, and so I'm going to be needing some advice to help me pick something adequate, small, and within my financial means. I was kind of wondering if I could maybe get something adequate at a pawn shop? I used to buy musical instruments for my kid at the pawn shops. I'm sure it's important to look carefully. Right now I'm not sure what I want, but since I'm overweight, I think I want to be able to holster it in the small of my back.
