Are You Safe?

Personal Safety On The Road

Phil May of TechnoRv.com and the one and only Andy McCaskey of RVNN talk about personal security while out on the road on this episode of GadgetPlex. As Phil notes when you are traveling from location to location in an RV you might find yourself seeking rest in some unfamilar spots such as parking lots or run down rest stops. The ultimate protection, as Phil notes, is a firearm, but a firearm can be tricky to take with you from state to state as the laws change drastically depending on your location so he offers some alternative. When it comes to safety Phil says that traveling safe means more than just keeping your rig running well.

Pepper spray is a great way to protect yourself that is legal and non lethal. Phil and Dave go over the range and aim of pepper spray. Phil tells us that there are different kinds of pepper spray and different kinds of nozzles on the canisters that offer different kinds of accuracy. Also there are different kinds of actual contents in the canister such as pepper spray gel which is thicker and offers a greater distant.

Another great form of self defense is a taser which has less limitations than pepper spray. Tasers work by shooting electricity through a would be attacker which is extremely effective in stopping someone in their tracks. Phil talks about how well a taser works, how to use them effectively, and the feature on the taser than might be a big enough deturant that you never have to fire it. Also Phil goes over why a taser is such an effective personal defense tool, because unlike pepper spray it doesn’t just hurt an attacker it interferes with the ability to control their muscles. This and more shocking facts on todays GadgetPlex!
