Why Are Nonlethal Personal Protection Weapons So Popular?
Post by Bryan Buckner
Nonlethal personal protection weapons are among the most popular products sold because assaults on men and women have been steadily increasing over the years. Nonlethal personal protection weapons provide a level of self-defense that is unparalleled by any other product including the lethal handgun. At last count there were an estimated 310 million guns in the United States including 110 million rifles, 86 million shotguns and as many as 114 million handguns. The statistics come from an organization called GunPolicy.org. It is unknown how many stun devices and pepper sprays there are in the United States because there is no registration or licensing required as there are with guns. So owning nonlethal personal protection weapons is far easier than with a lethal handgun. Nonlethal personal protection weapons are not only easier to obtain, they are also less expensive than the lethal variety which is another reason why civilians purchase them. Sabre brand produces pepper spray personal protection weapons that are used by law enforcement around the United States. The Crossfire MK-4 model is a good example of the quality products that they make. It contains 32 shots of half-second duration. The ballistic stream spray pattern reduces blowback and/or cross-contamination and can spray up to 20 feet away. It has a five year shelf life which is longer than most competitive pepper sprays. The expiration date is stamped on the bottom of the canister. What makes this Crossfire Mk-4 model so popular is the fact that can be fired from any angle to increase the probability of acquiring a target successfully. It is also one of the hottest pepper sprays available with a 1.33% of major Capsaicinoid concentration. When you are looking for personal protection weapons, Sabre brand Crossfire MK-3 and MK-4 models are among the most effective because of the flexibility in target acquisition. In a dynamic situation-the kind you and police officers are more likely to encounter-a suspect or assailant is unlikely to be standing still. Having the ability to hit a moving target from any angle will give you the edge you need to defend yourself.
