    Pepper Sprays can backfire!

    Compared notes with a Farang about the danger of being mugged on Pattaya Hill the other day.
    He produced a small Pepper Spray "I'll give them a squirt of this" he said.

    Well, this morning I came upon him in considerable distress. Eyes streaming, coughing and pucking......

    I washed his eyes out with some of my drinking water and he gargled some to reasonably good effect.

    When he was able to talk he said he had been threatened by a couple of bad boys and had used the spray on them. But the wind blew a good amount into
    his own face!

    I plan to strap my Bowie Knife to my thigh from now on when I take the Dogs for walkies......

    Exactly. Or a knife for those who know how.

    Pepper spray is still best for women though.....

    Pepper spray is good, I carry it sometimes, but you do have to take into account wind direction and put yourself in the right postition, knives are evil nasty things though

    If I am carrying it it is then in my pocket by itself, aint much point in carrying a weapon that you need a few minutes to find

    The ones outside Suzy Wongs can be pretty persistent but not as bad as the ladyboys under the steps at Asoke BTS.

    Guns are okay, nothing wrong with them, they haven't got any sharp bits that could in any way penetrate skin or look like a needle

    never ever carry a weapon, that you are either not trained to use or prepared to use, they can be very easily and quickly turned upon you, sad fact is that if you pull something you are already in real danger

    well said, best to try a quick poke in the eye, then a kick up the cobblers, if that dosent work,scarper! violence can quickly get way out of hand here, so i suppose a gun is the one really, but then again i try to keep myslef out of that kind of situation nowadays, interesting thread.
