What kind of weapons to buy for self-defense?

I would like to write for you a few my observations of a man who had weapons all his life. 
Since I was 18, I left to serve in the army and before entering the police pension and for many years my gun was always with me. 
And it was always a big problem. After several years of service, I did not want to have a weapon and always carry it with me.
 But I must do it for my service.
For 25 years of service, I had many opportunities to apply it in the legal field (lawfully), but I never used it against a person. 
Because I understood that any application entails negative consequences and  in the service, and in relations with relatives of the wounded or killed, and the killer's own feelings.

I can list a lot of all the possible inconveniences and risks that are created by the desire to have a weapon and use it.
1. Always  to hide it from other people and especially from your family.
 If your child accidentally finds your gun and decides to play with it while you are dining, then can happen a great misfortune. 
Look 1st law of survival.
2.  You must always hide your gun at home in a special safe and of course at the necessary moment,
 you will not find the keys to the safe or you will  forget the cipher.
3.You have problems when you go into the airport,some  restaurants, pool, bath, on the beach, etc.
4. You must periodically clean, lubricate your weapon.
5. You must pay a special license for the storage of weapons and undergo a medical examination.
6. You must visite to the shooting gallery and shoot 2-3 times in week. And it's not enough to be able to use weapons professionally, you have to do it every day for several hours.
 And this is a great illusion that in a real combat situation you will shoot precisely from such a position of the body, like in shooting place.
You will be in such clothes like in shooting place, you will aim long time like in shooting place. 
And you should remember that your opponent  will shoot to you in  this time...

Therefore, when  I am asked my students what kind of weapons to buy for self-defense, there may be a gas pistol or a gun with rubber bullets, or a knife, or a gas cylinder, or an electric shock, etc?
I always answer - nothing. For several reasons.
1. If a person decides to entrust his fate, health and life to a piece of inanimate metal, then he puts himself below this metal, which has no intelligence. And when a person lost  his time, energy, force and finances in order to learn how to shoot, I really pity his resources (time, energy, force and finances) and his misunderstanding.
The ability to shoot perfect  into people takes place only in two cases.
1.1. You are a professional soldier and you earn a living by this.
1.2. You are a professional killer.
More than 99,9% of cases in life  this skill you are not useful.
If you expect (think) that in some extreme situation you can protect yourself, then this is a delusion (great Illusion).
1. As a rule, at the right time the weapon will not be with you.
1.1. You will forget it.
1.2. You can not get it from the holster, pocket or other place.
1.3. If you get it, you forget to remove it from the protective device.
1.4. If you remove even from the protective device, your hands will be very stressed, and you can not do a good shot (for example, knock the hat off your opponent's head and scare him).
1.5. However, in this stressful situation, you must think about not getting into other people who may be in the field of your shooting.
 And it can be your family, friends, colleagues, etc.
1.6. Once you have pulled your weapon, at this point your opponent has every right to shoot you for defeat. And he will do it because of fear and as a rule, he will shoot the body and head, where the most dangerous for life. Because to aim and professionally shoot in the hand or foot, can only a professional shooter who has a lot of experience to shoot a living persons.
My question to you. Do you know many people who have such experience?
Ask your instructor how many people he killed? And how many people he wounded? 
And how many times he only knocked off  hat of his opponent and scared the enemy?

Thus, based on the above information and my rich experience of  communication with weapons, I recommend to all my students use their own resources (time, energy, force, finances)  for to develop their own body and mind; 

And then you  never  go into  a situation where you will need to shoot another persons.
But  if all the same  you will  not foresee and you will have  not avoid such a situation, 
you can find the most effective way to solve the way out of a dangerous situation.
Of course, provided that if you will develop yourself in this direction, think about it and to act accordingly.

I apologize if may be,  I touched of your deep feelings.
In the end it's your choice where to invest your resources and what result you want to get.
And your choice is the most right for you.
