Telescopic Stun Batons – Non Lethal Self Defense From A Safe Distance

Share

Telescopic or extendable stun batons have quickly become some of our top selling stun guns. The extended reach help keep you at a safe distance should trouble arise. Not surprising, considering that most stun guns are less than five inches in length and that you must touch an attacker or animal to gain the desired effect. The telescopic stun batons are about 12 inches in length when closed, then simply pull the trigger and it expands to nearly 22 inches length. That’s almost two feet of distance between you and them, which is a nice advantage to have.

Telescopic Stun Baton

More and more individuals are purchasing our batons for protection against aggressive dogs. Folks just want to be able to walk down their street with the kids. Often times they are confronted or even attacked by dogs. This is usually when they call or order a baton or spray from us. Just the “crackling” sound they produce as the electric current flows in normally enough to deter. Sometimes this isn’t enough and the dog decides to come closer or attack. As they move within range you reach out and touch the approaching animal with 700k to 800k of electricity. Within a fraction of a second the animal tucks the tail, yelps and quickly runs the opposite direction. The amusing thing is the next time you walk by; that once very aggressive canine, will sit and watch you from a distance. They usually don’t even bark at you anymore!

Stun batons are also effective non lethal self defense weapons. Simply, touch a would be attacker with the stun baton for about two seconds to get the desired effect. Typically, the assailant will loose there balance, become disoriented and loss of muscle control is normal. A person receiving two plus seconds of shock are sure to drop to the ground. Effects last 10-15 minutes, plenty of time to get to safety. Many of our customers rave about the telescopic stun guns. I’ve had customer claim effective use on mountain lions, cougars, snakes, and cattle; though we do not recommend this type of use.

You can find battery powered units or rechargeable units. The rechargeable units are becoming more popular because you never need to replace the batteries, so you save more money over the life of the baton. By the way most good stun batons carry a lifetime warranty. So if it ever breaks you send it back and get a new one! The technology used is very simple yet effective and reliable, therefore it is uncommon to encounter a defective unit unless it has been dropped or used to “strike” something.

You can expect to receive a holster or carrying case with a telescopic stun baton purchase. Some models are equipped with personal alarms that sound off at up to 130 decibels. It is also common to find LED flashlights built into these devices. In fact, Stun Master makes a 3 in 1 unit that includes a personal alarm, flashlight, and 800,000 volt expanding stun baton.

All units are equipped with some type of safety switch to prevent accidental discharge. The weight on a typical unit is less than two pounds. They are very easy to use. Simply pull the “trigger” and watch the baton “expand” and simultaneously begin firing. It is a good idea to test fire at least once per week to make sure they have a good charge and are functioning properly. To get the baton back into it’s compact position just push on the end or tip of the baton until it is back in the original position.

Two of the best brands include Stun Master and Streetwise, both have been producing quality stun devices for over twenty years and together account for over 85% of the market share. You can expect to pay between $55 and $65 depending on model. Some companies will try to overcharge with many asking over $90 per unit.

Selecting Online Self Defense Products

Share

OK, you are looking for non-lethal self defense products for yourself, family or friends. A quick web search and you will soon realize that the selection of self defense products are endless. So how do you choose a product(s), how do you know that you’ll get what you paid for? There are so many companies out there marketing pepper spray, stun guns, tasers, personal alarms, etc. It is quite overwhelming…what factors should I consider before I choose a company to put my trust in? Consumers face these questions each and everyday and lets face it ninety percent of the companies out there are “here today and gone tomorrow”. Statistics show that most small businesses will fail within the first year!

The first thing you should be aware of when shopping for on-line self defense products, or making any online purchase from a website for that matter is contact information. Does the company or website list a phone number that you can call for customer service? If they don’t and only provide an email address that should be a “red” flag. Next, are they an established company, are they incorporated and members of the Better Business Bureau (BBB). BBB members are held to very high ethical standards, so look for the Better Business Bureau seal. How long has the company been in existence? If it is less than a year this should also set off a “red” flag. Chances are if you need to return a product or have problems in six months they will have gone out of business.

Website security is huge today. Is the page where you are asked to input your credit card information secure? Look up at the URL and make sure it begins with HTTPS; if not I suggest you exist the site immediately. Their are companies out there spending thousands of dollars each month to ensure your financial information is safe, secure and encrypted. Look for “Secure Site” seals, for example Control Scan is a company that specializes in website security as well as business background checks. Security Metrics is another service that ensures the security of your financial information.

The look and feel of a website can tell you a great deal about the company you are dealing with. Is the site a “cookie cutter” with the exact same design as hundreds or even thousands of other sites. This should be a “red flag”. The site should be customized and unique in its design with easy navigation and a professional presence.

You will also want to review the “return policy”. This one can really burn the consumer. Make sure that if you order a product and it’s not what you wanted, it’s defective or it breaks in a year that you will be able to return for an exchange or refund. Some companies have a “All sales are final” return policy, which means “buyer beware.”

What type of shipping is offered and is the cost reasonable? Some companies will reduce the price of their products and claim to have the lowest prices. They will then turn around and “gauge you” with the cost of shipping. Another question to ask, what happens if you don’t receive your shipment? The tracking says the product was delivered, but you have not received anything. Are you out of luck? Make sure that your shipment is insured. This means if you don’t receive the shipment for whatever reason your still covered.

There are certainly other factors to consider but we consider these to be critical. Hope you find this information to be helpful when you are shopping around for self defense products or anything on the web.

Tough Economic Times Bring Crime Increase

Share

How many people out there feel they are immune to crime? Well, I’m here to tell you YOUR NOT. Today an incident reconfirmed that for myself and everyone at Guardian Self Defense. Our office areas are in a large building and we share space with a few other companies. Most days tend to bring a good amount of traffic in and out. It is not uncommon to see people that you don’t know or recognize.

This morning during a brief meeting one of our employees returned to the office to find her wallet missing. Immediately, we began helping her retrace her day. We came up empty everywhere we went. To make matters worse this young lady was married less than a month ago and just returned from the honeymoon. Today she was carrying a good amount of cash, all her credit cards, a debit card, social security card, and marriage license.

As the word began to get out, we quickly realized someone had walked right into her office and stole that wallet. In less than an hour five different workers (from other companies) came by and all gave very similar descriptions of a strange man they saw wandering the halls. All gave reported the same approximate time frame, which happened to be the same time frame as our meeting.

I quickly caught myself thinking, how could this happen? We live and breath self defense. We consult with small businesses and homeowners to prevent this sort of thing. After a few minutes I stopped myself.

Bottom line, we let our guard down. We allowed ourselves to get comfortable. We felt a false sense of security. A we became victims in our own office! To say I was mad, well that’s an understatement. I told my employees…”This will never happen again.” While we waited for the police I went into our warehouse and began to review our surveillance videos. We don’t have cameras in the offices but we do have the entry ways covered.

It didn’t take long to see the same guy coming and going multiple times. He looked nervous, out of place and up to no good. He closely matched the description given earlier. He quickly made his way out one last time and disappeared into the tree line behind the building.

The police came and took our report. Within hours they had him! In that short amount of time he rang up over $12,000 in fraudulent credit card transactions. I’ve heard it said, “What doesn’t kill you, will make you stronger.” I told my employee (the victim), we can approach this in one of two ways. We can be mad, upset and pissed at the world. Or we can learn from it and use this experience to help educate others.

We opted for the latter and all agreed we would work hard together to ensure the highest level of self defense going forward. Please evaluate your personal security situation. Have you become immune to crime? Are you comfortable in your environment, feeling that false sense of security? Are you aware of what is going on around you? How about your wife, your children or mother.

If you are like me you probably have thousands of dollars in valuables at your home on any given day. What if someone broke into your home tomorrow while you were at work or away on business. How would you fare? Do you leave expensive jewelry sitting in the bathroom or in a jewelry box in plain sight? Do you leave cash laying on your dresser or in the laundry room?

Most households make for a very nice payday and criminals definitely know this. They know where to look and what to look for. The objective is to get in and out quickly. In fact experts claim that most burglars spend less than eight minutes in a home. They get in and out grabbing things that are obvious and valuable.

A diversion safe could save you thousands of dollars should become a victim of a robbery. Many of you are saying, “What is a diversion safe?” Some call them hidden safes and they look and feel exactly like common household items such as soda cans, bathroom cleaners, spray starch, beer, etc. The difference is they have hidden compartments in them which will allow you to store your valuables. Some areas are large than others depending on the individual safe, but all are perfect for small items like rings, earrings, chains, necklaces, bracelets, and cash.

Dr. Pepper Diversion Safe

Hidden safes are inexpensive and come in a variety of models, some of the newest additions are Kibbles n Bits dog food and Miller Beer cans.

C2 TASER Focused on Families

Share

TASER C2The C2 TASER is focused on families. It is packed with features and has been proven more effective than a hand gun when used properly. The popularity of the C2 has increased since they debuted nearly two years ago. The new C2 has a small, sleek ergonomic design, its lightweight and easy to carry, one lithium power magazine provides over 50 applications, available in eight colors and will stop attackers in their tracks from up to 15 feet away!

Technology is the key to its unsurpassed non lethal effectiveness. Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) disables even the most aggressive subjects. NMI temporarily impairs the body’s muscular control resulting in a temporary paralysis. Shaped PulseTM Technology is a sophisticated pulse wave that uses high voltage cutting edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a lower voltage stimulation pulse to cause NMI. The C2 Cartridge is a replaceable module allowing the engagement of targets at ranges up to 15 feet (4.5 meters). Within the cartridge is 2 bi-metal probes, the high voltage insulated TASER wire and a nitrogen propulsion system. All C2’s are equipped with Anti-Felon Identification (AFID) a system used to deter misuse. AFID includes registering the serial number of each TASER with its owner. When fired confetti like ID tags are dispersed, these ID tags contain the serial number which allows the user to be identified. A Laser Integration Microprocessor controls laser illumination when the safety switch is activated. The result is fool proof accuracy! CheckLokTM is the next generation background check technology. All C2’s ship in a locked state, they can only be unlocked by entering a valid activation code upon successful completion of a background check.

The benefits of the TASER C2 include safety, effectiveness, ease of use, legal in most states, and a lifetime replacement guarantee. TASER devices have the ability to stop attackers from up to 15 ft. (4.5 m). If the user happens to miss the intended target and does not have another cartidge the C2 device can also be used as a contact stun device – a powerful backup capability. In actual use by law enforcement officers against dangerous suspects, TASER technology has among the lowest injury rates of any force option. The C2 is field proven with a 95% effective rate in actual law enforcement use. The TASER can and will incapacitate people under the influence of PCP and other dangerous drugs. Unlike conventional weapons, a TASER C2 application is effective anywhere on the body. This makes it easier to use and more reliable under stress than most other options. Bullets from hand guns risk lethal consequences, chemical or pepper sprays must hit an attacker in the eyes, nose or mouth and “blow back” is a concern when spraying into a stiff wind. The C2 TASER personal protection devices can be used more effectively and reliably than many other self-defense technologies.

TASER devices are not considered firearms by the US Government. They can be legally carried (concealed or open) without permit required in 43 states. CT and IL are legal with restrictions with a valid firearms license. Unfortunately they are prohibited for citizen use in DC, HI, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI, WI, certain cities and counties.

TASER International offers its users a lifetime replacement warranty. When a TASER C2 personal protection device is used in self-defense, it can be deployed and left behind providing the user an automatic window of opportunity to get to safety and call law enforcement. Simply send a copy of the police report documenting the incident and TASER will will replace your device free of charge! Their rationale and slogan explain the policy, “Your life is worth more to us than the cost of a TASER device.”

The TASER is a wise investment and the next generation in non lethal personal protection. For more information or to purchase a TASER visit us at http://www.guardian-self-defense.com/taserc2.htm
