    Default "flare Gun"

    This may have been asked before but I was wondering...when you travel to places like NY or NJ and stay overnight in a motel, obviously you cannot take your carry weapon..but what's the deal if you have a flare gun in the car & in the room with you...isn't it considered a "signal device" and it's better than nothing for self-defense..can anyone advise?

    Not sure about that one, but you might want to check the laws in NY and NJ on that because everything else is illegal in those states.............

    Heck, any place that requires you to register a BB-gun is suspect for even carrying a drawing or photo of a gun IMHO. (NJ, I believe)

    flare guns are useless for self defense, the round has no real harmful velocity at close ranges, and the flare itself will merely start a fire.

    plus, flares just bounce off a leather jacket.

    also, use of a flare gun with real antipersonnel ammo will reult in serious personal injury to yourself, and possible charges for a unregistered NFA device, as a flare gun is a smoothbore pistol(thus an AOW if used with "real" ammo)

    better idea is get some serious pepper spray, such as the kind for bear, that has a 30 foot spray, from UDAP.

    I doubt a flare gun will do much for you.

    Combining a flare gun with an alcohol based OC spray will make pretty colors..........

    Carry a Bic lighter and a can of WD-40. Shoots a flame about 20 feet and sets everything it touches on fire.
    It may not kill the attacker, but you'll still see his glare in the sky for two blocks.
