Female Self Defense Weapons

By the time you finish reading this article an average of 8 violent crimes will have taken place throughout the United States. Every 19 seconds in America, a violent crime is committed. The majority of crimes are perpetrated against women. You have likely seen some of the statistics. College coeds have a 20% likelihood of becoming the victim of an attempted or completed sexual assault during their college career. Nearly one in four women involved in a domestic relationship are abused physically. Overall, 20% of all women, will be the target of violence at some point in their lifetime. We are very sorry about that, but it is just a fact!

That is why so many self-defense weapon manufacturers such as Taser International, Streetwise, Guard Dog, Stun Master and many others all manufacture female self defense weapons.

One of the most popular female self-defense weapons are Mace brand pepper sprays. Mace brand has been around for over 30 years making defensive sprays that set the industry standard. Mace brand pepper sprays have perhaps the widest assortment of spray patterns and formulas in the marketplace today and our online store carries them all.

Sabre Red Crossfire MK 4 More Bang For the Buck

Share

Sabre Red Crossfire MK 4

Why should you buy Sabre Red Crossfire MK 4?

There are several reasons.

1. The first and most important is that it provides an effective means of self-defense for everyone who uses it. A defensive spray can incapacitate an assailant for as long as 45 minutes by causing extreme pain, excessive tearing of the eyes and makes breathing very difficult.

2. The fact that it comes out as gel disbursement method means that it holds up better in windy or rainy conditions. This is an important consideration since most applications of the defensive sprays are outdoors. When it is used in indoors, there is less chance of cross-contamination by hitting non-intended targets.

3. The Sabre Red Crossfire MK 4 fires continuously from any angle which increases target acquisition rates. This is an important consideration because most targets are dynamic as opposed to standing still (static).

4. This MK4 model contains one third more product than the MK 3 version, which means you get more bang for the buck.

5. It contains 32 half second shots with an effective range up to 20 feet nearly 50% further than most competitive pepper sprays. The Sabre MK 3 contains only 20 half second shots.

6. It is made out of the famous Sabre Red formula and contains 1.33% major capsaicinoids, the true measure of hotness of a pepper spray.

7. It is Taser/ECD compatible. Sabre brand defensive sprays are few on the market that are Taser compatible. It is just one of the reasons why it is favored by so many law enforcement agencies who all carry Taser guns.

And our online store has a good selection of all Sabre defensive sprays including the Sabre Red Crossfire MK 4. When you are looking for self-defense products need look no further than our online store.

Fox Defensive Pepper Sprays-Powerful Personal Protection

Share

Fox Labs was established in 1992 to manufacture and market the best less than lethal self-defense spray products available to the civilian market. In 1998 they introduced a 2% OC formula that measures 5.3 million SHU’s making it the hottest pepper spray anywhere. They quickly realized that with a new formula they could market them to law enforcement agencies.

As of this writing, Fox defensive pepper sprays are used by more law enforcement agencies in the United States and throughout the world than any other brand. The same high quality potent defensive sprays are available to civilians and are among the most effective pepper sprays for personal protection.

Fox Labs do not offer the variety of products that other manufacturers do. Instead they concentrate on quality and potency. They offer the best and most powerful personal protection of any defensive spray on the market.

Their sprays are famous for having a much longer range than their competitors. They are the only brand that markets their product as Taser/ECD compatible. And as you may know, almost every law enforcement officer on city streets these days carries a Taser.

Fox defensive pepper sprays use the Scoville heat unit (SHU) rating system and also measure the CRC (capsaicin and related capsaicinoids) strength in the basic formula. The CRC is really the true measure of the effectiveness of a defensive spray, while SHU’s are only a relative measure of hotness.

Defensive pepper sprays continued to be the largest selling and the most popular nonlethal self-defense product in the United States. Only a few cities and states have restrictions on their use. Check with your local police department before you buy and use one. Remember that misuse of a nonlethal weapon is a crime.

When you are looking for an excellent defensive spray for your personal safety and personal protection Fox defensive pepper sprays are what you’re looking for. They may be a little bit more expensive, but when your life is on the line you want police grade defensive sprays that work.

Hotness, potency, range, Taser compatible: with Fox defensive pepper sprays you get it all.

Civilian Sabre Defensive Sprays Are They The Best?

Share

Sabre brand defensive sprays is a name that may not be familiar to you. One of the reasons for that may be because most of their customers are law enforcement organizations both in the United States and foreign countries. The United States Federal Bureau of Prisons, the NYPD, the Department of Defense, the New Zealand National Police, Scandinavian Police forces and other top organizations of law enforcers around the globe are all customers.

The 39 year-old company’s slogan is “making grown men cry since 1975.” The family owned company specializes in pepper sprays and safety products. Their stated goal is to provide the safest and most effective personal pepper sprays. Civilian Sabre defensive sprays are the same ones that law enforcement officials buy. That should give you an indication of the effectiveness of the civilian Sabre defensive sprays. Are they the best?

Let’s take a look at why we think they might be. When you are in the market to purchase a defensive spray, you want the one that is the most effective-usually a measure of the hotness of the spray. The problem is almost everyone uses a different measure of hotness.

Most companies use Scoville heat units or SHUs as a standard while others use a percentage of oleoresin capsicum. Those measurements are relative but can be misleading. Sabre brand defensive sprays are the only manufacturer that we know of that uses “major capsaicinoids as their standard for hotness. Major Capsaicinoids (MC) are the true heat bearing and pain producing components which measure the strength of the entire pepper spray formulation. The MCs are the only true measure of pepper spray pungency.”

Thus civilian Sabre defensive sprays, in our humble opinion, are the best for the simple reason that they are the hottest and come in a wide variety of disbursement methods including pepper gel and colors including pink which women love.

Why Pepper Gel For Safety Is Your Best Bet

Share

“Pepper Gel is a stronger capsaicinoid concentration suspended in a sticky substance, rather than the liquid of regular pepper sprays. The gel can spray up to 20 feet and because the gel formula sticks like glue to the face of an assailant, it is less contaminating to the surrounding area, making it ideal for indoor use.”

The fact that it is stronger than most other sprays, has a more concentrated stream with a greater range and can be used indoors because it eliminates cross contamination all are reasons why pepper gel for safety is your best bet.

Pepper spray that is dispersed in a mist or fog can be affected by windy outdoor conditions. Indoors the risk of cross-contamination is huge simply because of the disbursement method. Pepper gel eliminates wind blow-back and cross-contamination. It is one of the few pepper sprays that is safe to be used indoors.

When someone gets targeted with a gel, it sticks to his face like glue. When the assailant tries to remove the gel from his face, he grinds it in, making the pain much worse.

Maybe that is why women, especially college age women, prefer pepper gel for safety by a huge margin over other pepper sprays.

SABRE PEPPER GEL
SABRE PEPPER GEL

Sabre Pepper Gel is the number one pepper gel for safety on college campuses and it has 3rd generation technology which allows canisters to deploy continuously from any position which gives you the added benefits of flexibility and speed.

It has a five year shelf life and comes with a holster. It has a flip top safety device to prevent accidental discharge. The range of 20 feet is nearly twice that of the normal pepper spray.

When you are in the market for a defensive spray for yourself or your daughter going off to college, remember why pepper gel for safety is by far the preferred product for civilians. Pepper spray continues to be the number one selling self-defense product worldwide. More law enforcement officers carry Sabre pepper sprays than any other brand.

What Is Oleoresin Capsicum?

Share

WOMAN USING PEPPER SPRAY

What is oleoresin capsicum? It is a funny sounding name; actually two words that comprise the essence of pepper spray. The two words are; oleoresin which means an oil holding resin in solution, and capsaicin which is the active ingredient in peppers that makes them hot. Capsaicin is the major ingredient in creams and lotions “commonly marketed to relieve muscle and joint pain.”

To rephrase it, oleoresin capsicum is the resin of one of the hottest peppers in the world, the cayenne-combined with water, glycol and a propellant such as nitrogen to make it usable as a defense spray in a canister.

According to Wikipedia “Pepper spray, also known as OC spray, OC gas, and capsicum spray, is a lachrymatory agent (meaning it can cause teary eyes and a runny nose) used in policing, riot control, crowd control, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears.”

Pepper spray is widely recognized as the largest selling, most popular self defense product in the world. In the United States it is legal in all 50 states with a few cities and states having restrictions.

It makes the eyes swell up and inflames the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract; it causes temporary blindness and a great deal of pain.

It is used for protection against human assailants and animal attacks, specifically dogs and bears. Every law enforcement officer in the country carries oleoresin capsicum on his utility belt as his first nonlethal protection tool. The U.S.P.S. issues defensive sprays to all of their letter carriers as their first line of defense against dog attacks.

For civilians, oleoresin capsicum is a favorite among both women and men because it is so effective, so inexpensive and so easy to use. It is over to 95% effective on average.

OLEORESIN CAPSICUM PRODUCTS

We carry a very extensive line of oleoresin capsicum products from several different manufacturers in all price ranges.

Why Self Defense Products For Young Women Are So Popular

Share

Is there any doubt in your mind why self-defense products for young women are so popular? All you have to do really is look at a police blotter to see the number of times women have been assaulted, robbed, raped, murdered or otherwise as victims of crime. Statistics tell us that women are assaulted nine times more often than men. Are you beginning to get the idea now why self defense products for young women are so popular?

The most common places that women are assaulted are: at home in domestic violence situations; in parking lots, especially those that are poorly lit; and at places of employment or study.

Colleges and Universities that were once dominated by male students are now predominantly female. It has been estimated in study after study that as many as 20 to 25% of all female students have been sexually assaulted in their four years at a University.

Industries that are heavily dependent upon female workers, such as teaching and healthcare have high rates of assault against women.

And unfortunately, domestic violence has an extremely high rate of assault against women with nearly 25% of all women in the United States reporting intimate partner violence.

Manufacturers of self-defense products for young women are keenly aware of these statistics and know full well who their targeted market is. That is why manufacturers of stun guns and pepper sprays-the two most predominant self-defense products in the world-have so many products geared towards young women.

Two excellent examples of self-defense products for young women and what we have been talking about are:

Disguised Pepper Spray

1. The Sabre Red SmartGuard Spray that has 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum and a concentration of 1.33% major capsaicinoids, making it eight times stronger than normal pepper spray. It comes in a fashionable Smart phone case and can fire as many as six shots up to 10 feet away.

2. The second example (seen above) is this Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun that is 3,000,000 V in a tube that looks just like a lipstick container.

Both of these products are disguised giving you the added advantage of surprise in an attack. They are the perfect self-defense products for young women.

What Is The Best Police Pepper Spray?

Share

In today’s blog post we are discussing the best police pepper sprays on the market. You may already know that every police officer in the country carries a defensive spray on his utility belt as his primary nonlethal defense against criminals and in aiding his job of criminal apprehension.

Wikipedia tells us that “pepper spray, also known as OC spray from ‘oleoresin capsicum’, is a lachrymatory agent-a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness-used in policing, riot control, crowd control, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears.”

The inflammatory effects of police pepper spray make the eyes involuntarily close shut. Additionally, the capillaries in the eye become inflamed, causing temporary blindness. The mucus membranes become swollen and irritated making it difficult to breathe. These are some of the nearly instant effects that allow police officers to more easily restrain subjects and for private citizens an opportunity to escape a potentially dangerous situation.

1. There is a police pepper spray grenade model by Fox labs that is meant for crowd control. Unlike other police model pepper sprays this one is activated by depressing the pop top and throwing into a crowd where it spins in a 360 degree disbursement circle in 10 seconds or less. This is the same model used by law enforcement agencies worldwide. It contains the famous 5.3 million SHU formula-one of the hottest available.

2. The Mace brand PepperGard is one of the original models used by law enforcement for over 20 years. It contains a 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum with .66% major capsaicinoids. It has a Velcro attachment that can be used to secure it to a bike or car. It has the flip top safety cap that was invented by Mace to help prevent accidental firing.

POLICE PEPPER SPRAY

3. The Mace brand triple action Police Pepper Spray is one of the best on the market. It contains a 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum pepper spray, CS tear gas and a UV marking dye to aid in assailant identification. It has a stream spray pattern which holds up better in outdoor conditions and has enough spray for 20 half-second bursts up to 12 feet away, more than enough for most confrontations with an assailant. This is the largest keychain model available and has the unique contoured finger grip to assure proper aiming. This combination of OC and CS tear gas produce an extremely effective ally, that will take the “fight” out of an attacker!

Women’s Favorite Mini Stun Guns

Share

In the days when we first got started in this business some 10 years ago, the rule of thumb was the bigger the stun gun, the more powerful it was. Those days are long gone! Stun guns today are smaller than ever and more powerful than ever before. This is why mini stun guns have become favorites of women for their personal safety and self-defense.

Two good examples of mini stun guns is the “hot shot” and “runt” stun guns. They are both made by Stun Master, a long recognized leader in the self-defense products industry. The “hot shot” stun gun is the smallest stun gun we know of as of this writing. It is only 3″ x 2″ x 1″ but packs a powerful 11,000,000 volt punch. It uses long life lithium batteries and comes with stainless steel belt clip and free nylon holster to make carrying easy.

RUNT MINI STUN GUN

The overall women’s favorite is this Runt Stun Gun that comes in pink or black and sells for $22.99. It is only slightly bigger than the hot shot stun gun at 3.5″x2″x1.” It has a built-in slide out wall charger for recharging batteries so you never have to buy batteries again. The stun device has a protective rubberized coating to help ensure a firm grip in all weather conditions and has the popular disable pin wrist strap. And, oh yes, did we mention that it has 20,000,000 volts of power? As an added benefit in has a 120 lumen LED flashlight built-in.

Both of these high quality mini stun guns have lifetime warranties which is a testament to the quality of their workmanship and another reason why they are women’s favorite self-defense items. Make sure that you use them properly for self-defense only. Misuse may be grounds for criminal prosecution.

Check out all of our other Mini Stun Guns to see which one will suit you best.

Winter seemed to last forever. It was a brutal season for many people around the country with record snowfalls in the east, southeast and northern states. Temperatures in many parts of the country hit all-time lows. The general malaise created by the weather caused countless cases of “cabin fever”. As temperatures heat up, so does the desire to get out and about. People of all ages return to the great outdoors and resume activities like running, walking and biking.

With this new found freedom comes the reality that danger could be lurking around the corner. Often exercise enthusiasts get so focused on the activity that they neglect the things going on around them. That’s when you become most susceptible to an attack. To counter, it is always best to run with a friend on a familiar and well-lit path.

The threat of a dog attack is also all too common. Over 5 million people are attacked and bitten by dogs every year. According to the CDC, every 75 seconds in the United States a dog bite occurs. Every day, over 1,000 people need require emergency care to treat these injuries. Wherever you go, whether it’s a city park or your neighborhood street, dogs can be a constant threat.

Domestic Violence Plan Announced

Share

This is a news story about how government officials, community partners courts, law enforcement and local communities and team together to announce the implementation of a comprehensive Domestic Violence Plan.

Domestic Violence is a growing problem across the nation. It is the leading cause of injury to women-more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined and the 7th leading cause of death. Over one in four women are victims of domestic violence.

The purpose of the plan is to “reduce the incidence of domestic violence and eliminate domestic violence homicides is based on a plan modeled after the successful practices of other communities where domestic homicides have been reduced to near zero.”

The plan is intended to improve communication and a clear focus on the mission to send a message that domestic violence is not tolerated. “The plan also includes the use of electronic monitoring that can track the offender 24/7 and alert the victim and law enforcement if the offender goes near the victim, allowing the victim time to implement her safety plan.”

Ankle bracelets have been standard practice in many communities with great success.

Women who are in a domestic abuse relationship should have an escape plan formulated as part of your exit strategy and all women should carry a self-defense product with them such as a pepper spray or stun gun.

One of the best ways to defend against assaults even domestic abuse assaults is with a self-defense product such as our Crossfire Gel Spray. which has an effective range of 20 feet and because the spray is concentrated gel there is less likely contamination when used indoors as in a domestic violence situation

Women Joggers At Risk

Share

This is a story from Australia where a sexual predator has been assaulting Women Joggers.

The perpetrator attacks from behind in the dark and has worn a hood in each incident.

“Officers are have increased patrols in the Newport and Yarraville areas after three women were grabbed from behind and indecently assaulted while jogging between 6am and 8am over the past two weeks.

All three were wearing headphones at the time and are aged between 20 and 30, police say.

Detective Sergeant Kerr said in each case the woman’s scream had scared the attacker off.

Police believe there may be other people out there who have been approached by this man.

Detective Sergeant Kerr encouraged women to keep jogging, but urged caution when jogging with headphones in.

Women are particularly vulnerable when they’re out jogging, walking or cycling because usually they are by themselves and are distracted which makes them perfect targets for perverts.

U.S. News & World Report College Rankings And Sexual Assaults on Campus

Share

Here is an op-ed piece on Campus Sexual Assaults and U.S. News & World Report college rankings.

Several weeks ago a question was raised about U.S. News & World Report college rankings and whether or not they should include campus sexual assaults.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings are a hugely influential factor in how millions of people make college decisions every year.

“Brian Kelly, the editor of U.S. News & World Report, just announced that U.S. News will not include campus sexual-assault data in it’s annual college ranking this year, despite pleas from 12 members of Congress, citing the “unreliable” and “inconsistent” nature of the data. Moreover, even if better data were available, U.S. News would not include sexual assault information because:

Campus safety is not among the factors that U.S. News believes is directly tied to academic quality.”

This decision upset millions of readers.

The best way to defend yourself against any kind of assault anywhere is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or a pepper spray. We always recommend pepper sprays that are on keychains because that way it is with you all the time.

Aussie Epidemic In Domestic Violence

Share

Here’s a story out of ABC news in Australia concerning what many are calling a Domestic Violence Epidemic.

The story goes on to say that domestic violence is it epidemic proportions and that it is reached the point where it is time to clear a national emergency.

“I think it’s about saying for once we are going to pull together all our resources and treat this in the way we would if it was a national disaster of any kind, like a flood or a bushfire, and deal with it head on.”

In Australia, domestic violence is the leading cause of death and injury in women under 45, with more than one woman murdered by her current or former partner every week.

There are young victims too, with more than one million children affected by domestic violence.

It accounts for 40 per cent of police time, the cost to the economy is $13.6 billion per year.

“Domestic and family violence is common. It’s [an] epidemic and it’s a national disgrace.”

Men need to wake up to the fact that it is a men’s problem … until they wake up to that fact, nothing’s going to change.

“What we now need to do is have that conversation with men, about how they can change that culture.”

The best way that women can protect themselves in a domestic violence situation is with a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or this Small Fry Stunner that is 11 million volts and 3.5″ T x 2″ W x 0.8″ D. It weighs only 9 ounces.
