Safety should always be a priority for those who exercise outdoors, which is why Triathlete named safety as a top trend for 2018. Today we explore how to safely carry your TASER device while getting in some exercise.
Consider adding a self-defense toolWhen it comes to exercising safely outdoors, a handful of common tips may pervade: be more visible, run with a friend, bring ID, consider ditching headphones. These are all important items to consider, but what we often miss in discussing personal safety is considering the added protection from harm by carrying a less lethal weapon. A Runner's World survey of women found that 3% have been physically assaulted while 30% have been verbally harassed. To be clear, the risk of being a victim of violent crime is relatively low in the United States, but it is still important to be ready to fight back if needed. A big part of properly using a TASER device is knowing how to carry it when the device is not in use.
Why a holster is importantTASER devices are self-defense tools, and it is extremely important to handle the device as such. That means keeping the trigger covered and pointing the device in a safe direction at all times. That includes when carrying it on your person, in a coat, or in a bag!
TASER holsters minimize the risk of an accidental discharge by securing the trigger mechanism.
