Ok, this is a weapon. Is this ok with the PH community?

I have felt unsafe running later in the evening in certain areas, especially in winter when it's dark a lot earlier so I can see the reasoning and argument for this product. I wonder of the legality of it though? Carrying a concealed weapon could get people into trouble. Also, if startled by an innocent encounter - colliding with another runner / dog walker in error, could it be too tempting to use and cause someone serious injury as an instinct? It saddens me that there is a need for products like this, but as mentioned, I don't jog after dark when alone anymore so can understand why it's been created.

This is kind of frightening. Curious to hear the backstory on this one.

Seems perfect to have something at your immediate access, that also is not an annoyance to have with you as you run. Very smart idea

Are you supposed to punch someone with your wrist up like that? 50/50 chance of breaking your wrist. I feel like pepper spray might be more effective.

@nicholasjenson I agree on the punching angle, could be dangerous for the user. I also think that pepper spray could be more effective. Maybe combination of pepper spray with the portability and ease of use of Go Guarded could hit the right spot.
