This is an easy question for me to answer and it is a frequently asked question. My three recommendations are to carry a Stungun, Pepper Spray or Gel, and a Brutus Keychain or Kubaton Keychain. It May seem to be a lot but they are not that big of items. The Stungun should be hooked on your wrist whenever you are outside going to your car after work, to the bus or train station, and when out for a walk or jog. The Pepper product can be substituted for the Stungun or you should have either one at all times. The keychains will be hooked to your keys and should be at the ready. This may seem to be a lot, as I stated earlier, but if you think of it if you have the Pepper product ready you can use it for a longer distance than the Stungun. If the Pepper product is not effective for some reason you can have the Stungun as the next step. You should practice this if that is the way you are going to use them. If the Stungun is not effective for some reason you will have the Brutus or Kubaton to fight like hell.
These items will be your last line of defense besides any training you have had in self-defense. You should not worry about where you hit the person, they will cause some damage to wherever you happen to get a jab in. The Brutus and Kubaton can be used effectively on tender parts of the body or for blinding shots when you feel your life is in imminent danger. At that point, it does not matter you are fighting for your life and the attackers’ injuries should be the least of your worries. The Brutus by design is an excellent eye jabbing tool. The finger holes in the Dog Face should remind you where to place the ears of it as seen in the picture, I have attached.
For men, I recommend the same options with the possibility of having a pocket knife. Many guys prefer knives to keychains or pepper products from what I have experienced. We also sell knives on our site you can take a look at. Not every guy is built, trained, or ready to face an attacker either. I am in my Sixties and even though I have had a lot of self-defense training with my military and law enforcement background, I probably cannot defend myself as effectively as I used to.
