What is possible legal self-defense options for a felony assault/battery?

Question Details: Lately I have been in a few incidents where I wish I had some form to defend myself. In a public place, if I feel threatened what are my possible options to defend myself? What options are available to me if someone is going to assault me, but has not actually touched me. I read that assault doesn't have to be physical, they can walk up/raise a fist and that counts as an assault. Could I shoot someone with a BB gun in self defense? Is an air gun an acceptable form of self defense? Lastly, If I am in my car, does that constitute as being within my property, so if someone reaches into my car, could I shoot them in self-defense? I'm in N.H.
