    Do they make an all in one gadget like that ? IMO a taser would be a better option least you don't need to be in contact with a bad guy for it to work . I believe they make a taser with a built in light . Forget mace get a good brand pepper spray .

    I'd go with the 450 , Big choice of 45 cal pistol bullets cast and jacketed varieties and brass is fairly common . Ballistics are way more than enough for any deer to handle if you want to use it for that . With an adjustable gas block you could...
