within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."

(Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkis.)
At my age, I never go out in public without my Knuckle Blaster
stun gun. Although it's shaped like brass knuckles which are illegal, it is rubber coated and doesn't cause the injury brass knuckles do. Plus, since it wraps around your fingers, it's almost impossible to be taken from you. Push the safety up with your thumb and pull the trigger with your fore-finger and watch people step back from just igniting it. I've startle many people when demonstrating it.
Make sure you read the State restrictions on the site. Surprisingly, they are not illegal or restricted in California. Of course there's also pepper spray, but depending on the heat of the moment and wind, it can come around to you. Also, think hornet spray that shoots far, but in big bulky cans. The Knuckle Blaster easily fits in the pocket or purse.
Yes, I know the best defense is a handgun, but you probably don't want to use that in a simple scuffle.
