Laser pointers for self defence

Unread post by Pertys80 » Mon May 21, 2018 8:02 am

One of the reasons I haven't gone out looking for a Yowie by myself is the fear of being another "Missing 411" case.. The chances of even running into one is pretty slim, but I love and cherish my family too much to put them through the torment of losing a loved one like that.. Other than a firearm, does anyone know of any self defence methods for a pissed off Yowie?
Bigfooter/prospector, Bob Barrett from Texas, US swears a laser pointer once saved his life.
He pissed off a big boy in the Big Thicket one night, as it charged him his first reaction was to dazzle his eyes with the laser pointer on his goggles.. Needless to say, it stopped him in its 15 ft away which gave him and his son time to back off. From what I gather, theres a lot of aggro big foot in the Big Thicket, and this one was every bit of 9ft.
Its been probably been brought up already, but a laser pointer maybe a worth while investment..😉

Hi Pertys

I have read that a super powerful LED torch is considered a good way to dazzle anyone/anything and buy you time to back off if something big and hairy decides to go you... given that we think their night vision is immeasurably superior to ours, the effect on their ability to see for at least 30 seconds might come in handy...
