Some good thoughts Jim! What brand is the flashlight that you carry?

"BrightMax 3000"  but some newer ones are even brighter (more lumens).  Variable focus.  Newer ones have steady, flashing, and SOS options.
Amazon does seem to have quite a variety:

So two of the lessons we might be learning from Jim's ongoing reports of pit-bull attacks:

1. Never have a pit bull in a family with frail or vulnerable members, such as the elderly or children.  Possibly never have a pit bull regardless.  Lots of other choices exist of course, with animal shelters being full of sweet tempered dogs that might make loyal watchdogs and desperately need a home.

2. People who live where feral dogs roam might want to carry mace and/or wear knee-high boots for walking, and possibly carry a gun or noise-maker, or maybe a walking stick or umbrella.  Or possibly some irresistible treat that could be tossed a distance to divert attacking dogs?

I always carry a high-luminosity flashlight.  It is bright enough to blind man or beast, even several of them, and is useful for other purposes also, of course.

If you need to hit an animal, aim for the throat.  For humans, the best target is usually the knees.  (So I have read - never tried it)
Knees are probably a good target, as we watched a self-defense video some years ago and a few of the tidbits really stuck in my mind:  one was that by whacking someone across the middle of the knee, not flat-handed, but using the edge of the palm, one can likely dislocate a knee, as it takes, according to video, only about 15 pounds of pressure to dislocate a knee in this way.
In reminiscing about the self-defense video, hubby remembers differently:  he recalls that it is a blow from the side of the knee that can be the most disabling.  Makes sense, as the knee isn't meant to bend sideways, in the manner of forward or backward movement.

Also, hubby mentioned that if someone reaches forward to grab you, you should, if possible, do not pull back, but instead lunge forward with all your might, and you will cause the attacker to fall backward, that is if you can lunge hard enough.  That is not what they are expecting.

Also, if someone large picks up a much smaller person, for example to throw over the shoulder and carry like a sack of potatoes, the victim may have the opportunity to take both hands, with wide open palms, and bring them together very forcefully, clapping the wide open palms against attacker's ears.

The ultimate “Home Defense” weapon !!

KILLS ZOMBIES OR YOUR MONEY BACK’: MUSK PROMOTES $500 FLAMETHROWER

https://www.blacklistednews.com/‘Kills_zombies_or_your_money_back’%3A_Musk_promotes_%24500_flamethrower_%28VIDEOS%29/63296/0/38/38/Y/M.html

https://www.boringcompany.com/flamethrower


Tech billionaire Elon Musk has unveiled the “world’s safest flamethrower,” available for pre-order to prepare for a zombie apocalypse. Just in case, fire extinguishers are sold separately for an “exorbitant amount of money.”

Musk’s Boring Company – which has so far primarily specialized in “boring” tunnel construction – touted the new device on its official website on Saturday as a product “guaranteed to liven up any party!”

The handy device, which Musk says is “great for roasting nuts,” will cost die-hard fans of the SpaceX and Tesla founder a hefty $500. However, to embrace the fire power that could be quite useful in case of a zombie apocalypse they will have to wait until spring.

“When the zombie apocalypse happens, you’ll be glad you bought a flamethrower. Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!” Musk tweeted.

Just hours after the announcement Musk changed his Twitter profile description to “Zombie Defender” and dismissed what he says is a rumor of his “secretly creating a zombie apocalypse” to boost the demand for flamethrowers. He added that he lacked a facility able to produce so many zombies.

“You’d need millions of zombies for a so-called ‘apocalypse’ anyway. Where would I even get a factory big enough to make so many!?” Musk wrote.

The flamethrower will be shipped internationally, but delivery costs and taxes are not included in the price, the company said. A potential proud owner would also need to agree to terms and conditions, sent ahead of the flamethrower’s purchase.

There is no disclaimer, nor a word of caution in the offer. Nevertheless, the Boring Company does offer its own fire extinguisher for $30, which it describes as an “exorbitant amount of money.”  ??? ???

Musk announced his plans to start selling a flamethrower in a tweet on December, 10.

A typical defense weapons for when guns and bows are confiscated or banned

http://bugout.news/2018-01-30-atypical-defense-weapons-for-when-guns-and-bows-are-confiscated-or-banned.html

And without guns for self-defense, how is one supposed to protect oneself?

Wasp Spray.  Bear Spray.  High luminosity flashlights.

Wasp Spray.  Bear Spray.  High luminosity flashlights.
SuperSoaker filled with bleach or ammonia.  Potato gun.  A very old, dead Eastern Red Cedar tree, sharpened to a point on one end.  These trees can be decades old, but lie around on the forest floor after the white outer part has rotted, leaving the red inner part that never seems to rot.  Some of them not only can be sharpened at the top (thin end), but the side branches have all turned into short, very sharp pointed "side-weapons".  An old cedar tree (might only weigh a pound or two) can be lethal.

Survival weapons: A closer look at the different types of bows

http://bugout.news/2018-02-10-survival-weapons-a-look-at-the-different-types-of-bows.html

Bows (and arrows) are some of the most versatile tools and weapons around. For years they’ve been used for hunting and sports. From wood and hemp, modern bows are now made of carbon fiber and fiberglass.

Bows for survival

Guns are convenient, but here are some of the pros of using a bow and arrow for survival:

Fewer laws, red tape, and paperwork – Unlike guns, legal limitations and laws are much more lax on the bow and arrow.
They’re affordable – A good bow only costs several hundred bucks and if you know how to maintain it, it will last a lifetime. Even arrows are more cost-effective compared to bullets. You can simply retrieve your bows and if you take the time to learn, you can even make your own arrows.

They’re portable – If you get a takedown bow, you will have access to a portable weapon that is easy to pack in your vehicle or bug-out bag (BOB). Bows are also lighter, with some weighing only a couple of pounds.

They’re silent – The bow and arrow make for a quiet weapon, making it “nearly completely silent” and just as effective as a gun.
