Which is better....pepper spray or a small glock pistol for a young woman out alone?
An attractive young woman walking her small dog....armed with pepper spray or carrying a small glock for protection? Is the gun more dangerous FOR her than protective? Now, if she is walking a doberman, does it matter?
If you are willing to take the proper safety courses and practice often, a small gun would be great. If you aren't willing to practice then pepper spray is better because you are less likely to hurt yourself.
Firearms courses teach many valuable, like when you are allowed to use a gun to protect yourself (for a small female, it is hard to NOT be justified if attacked), tons of safety rules/recommendations, proper maintenance/cleaning, etc.
If she is walking a dog, it really depends on the type of dog. If the dog is likely to bark if it is approached by a stranger, that would certainly be discouraging to an attacker. If the dog is small and timid it would not make much of a difference.
Both would be best. Bring pepper spray in case she wants to get away, but not kill her attacker, but also bring a gun in case the attacker also has a gun.

Can an old man (60+) fall in love with a young woman (20+)?We all know that love ignores all barriers like: religion, race, distance and age. But is it really possible for a man of 65-70 years of age to fall in love with a young girl of 20-25 years of age. I mean, is it psychologically possible?
