Prioritize Your Safety With Our Best Less Lethal Self Defense Tools

Less lethal self defense tools

Everyone is entitled to their personal safety, even people who aren’t comfortable owning or carrying a firearm. Frontier Justice understands this hesitancy and wants to meet everyone where they are comfortable while empowering you to take control of your personal safety. 

To support that commitment, we’ve put together this list of great less lethal self defense tools that we offer in all three of our stores and online. 


There isn’t a less lethal personal protection tool on the market we believe in more than Byrna products. For anyone nervous about owning a firearm or needs personal protection that’s easy to travel with, Byrna is a fantastic alternative to a firearm. 

Our President, Bren Brown, explains why she loves the Byrna

Byrna makes a variety of products, from pepper ball launchers to backpack shields and personal protection alarms

The pepper ball launchers come in multiple configurations, with options that resemble semi-automatic handguns and others similar to AR-15s. These launchers shoot projectiles filled with an all-natural pepper formula that’s one of the most powerful on the market. This formula causes many detrimental physical effects, like burning in the throat, wheezing, gasping, and gagging. 

Byrna launchers are not classified as firearms, so there is no required background check or permit needed to own one. There’s no restrictions on interstate travel with Byrna products, and you can even fly with them! They are convenient to carry as well, with over the waistband holster options available, so Byrna launchers are an ideal less lethal self defense choice for people who can’t carry a firearm or are nervous about concealed carry. 

Pepper Spray

Arguably the most popular less lethal self defense tools, pepper spray is a versatile personal protection options. However, there are many different kinds of pepper spray and mace tools on the market, so finding one you’re comfortable keeping on you is crucial. 

Like a firearm, it’s important to find a tool that you will actually keep on you, so it is available in dangerous situations. An option we often suggest to customers is Sabre Pepper Sprays. These devices boast police-strength pepper spray for maximum security, and they produce a powerful stream that can hit a target up to 10 feet away. And they come in multiple size options, so it’s easier to find one that fits your concealment preferences. 

Personal Protection Alarms

Personal protection alarms are also a great and convenient less lethal self defense tool. These tools give off an alarm of 130 decibels that disorients potential attackers. That’s as loud as Arrowhead Stadium after a big play by the Chiefs!

Knives and Batons

Striking tools such as collapsable batons and stabbing devices like knives and tactical pens are good options for up-close self defense. Before carrying one of these devices, make sure you know the concealed carry laws in your state. Many states require a permit to carry any concealed weapon, not just firearms. 

Tactical pens are particularly effective options for concealed carry. Made to look and function like a normal pen, these self defense tools feature an aluminum body that is sturdy enough to use in self defense. 

An important note about knives: Pocket and fixed blade knives are considered lethal force and can require many strikes to be effective. Before purchasing a knife or any self defense tool, make sure you explore all of your options and pick the right one for your needs.
