Escalation of force

If a vision impaired and disoriented attacker persists after being hit with wasp or bear spray, more persuasion can be administered with a baseball bat.  Keep a bat nearby and aim for the knees to allow your escape. If a bat is too big of a tool to carry, a ball peen hammer is a smaller option.
