While fire-arms are great weapons to have in your arsenal, it shouldn't be the only weapon. You cannot take a firearm into many public places.. airports being the big one. You should train in other, more subtle weapons as well. To say that a gun beats a sword everytime is *, within 5ft the sword will have a greater chance of winning. A gun can only damage what it's pointing at, a sword can thrust and slice on several planes. Also, you must keep in mind that with a gun, there is very little choice as to whether or not you want to end a person's life. Melee weapons give you a more peaceful solution.

Fire-arms should be a part of self-defense training, but only a part of it. If you are serious about self-defense, you should learn how to use anything as a weapon and how to defend yourself against them.

Many women carry pepper sprays, mace, guns and other weapons used for self defense. I feel they are all unwieldy to carry and require some sense of exactitude that I may not have in a stressful situation. I choose to carry a knife and have trained in the use of knives for self defense. Not everyone will respond to kicks, punches, holds or pressure points but everyone bleeds.
Many of the skills learned i traditional martial arts do transfer to knifefighting techniques and help the martial artist develop skills for different situations.

My Mom carries pepperspray, I think its pretty good. Never had to use it which is good, but it is definitely a good thing to have.

OC Spray is an effective tool if you are trained properly to use it, and is not lethal by any means.

My warning though is get training to use it, OC can splash back into your face, and can be a rude awakening if you have never been sprayed before.

I also advise ladies to get (if legal) the dye foam OC spray. If you are attacked, and use it it is easy for the authorities to identify the assailant and arrest them. It's actually comical as they will have a blue or green dyed face...

What's great about pepper spray is that you can use it to really add some kick to your meals. If you can't find the tabasco, reach for your spray. Yummy!!!

I'm not into fire weapons.. you can hurt yourself very very easily with them, and can be taken away and used against you easily too.
I would like the idea of knowing how to shoot, how to disarm.. how the guns works.. But not interest on Carry one.
I'm more into Improvised weapons you can use everywhere and you don't necesarilly have to carry them. Also, I think stick weapons are second best,.. followed by knifes.
As far as Martial arts weapons.. Bo's and Nunckuk's , and filipion sticks would be my choice.
And the swords.
