Self Defense Options Proven To Stop Violent Crime

Share

Bourbon Street is synonymous with fun, partying, and good times. Unfortunately, in recent weeks, this tourist magnet is making news for all the wrong reasons. Violent crime has locals and tourists alike taking notice. According to crimemappings.com the French Quarter has been a dangerous place to party, citing 13 assaults, 12 armed robberies in and around Bourbon Street during the second week of December. Throughout the month of December 2014, the area within a one-mile radius of Bourbon Street saw 61 Assaults and 36 Robberies!

Residents and workers are on alert because of the violent crime increase in the French Quarter. A group of locals are spreading awareness by hanging signs throughout the Quarter that read “Caution Walk in Large Groups – We Love NOPD – We Just Need More.” The signs are designed to warn of potential crime and to encourage people to enjoy the Quarter in the safety of a large group. This is excellent advice, as statistics show the likelihood of becoming a violent crime victim is drastically reduced when you’re accompanied by a group of 3 or more.

Unfortunately, many residents and workers don’t have the luxury of congregating in groups. A highly effective alternative includes personal protection items like Mace and Pepper spray. When used correctly, these non-lethal devices are proven to stop an aggressive attacker almost immediately. A blast of pepper spray to the face of an assailant goes to work within seconds. First, it causes the capillaries in the eyes to swell – this causes temporary blindness. The threat posed by an attacker who can’t see is greatly reduced. Respiratory inflammation and difficulty breathing help to take the “fight” out of a potential attacker. Mace or pepper spray hurts. The pain to the eyes has been described as “excruciating” and left untreated the effects last about 30 minutes. Self-defense sprays allow users the ability to stop a potential threat quickly and safely from a distance of 8 feet or more.

Why Pepper Spray Is an Effective Self-Defense Weapon

Simply put, pepper spray makes sense as a self-defense weapon. The prevalence of crime is on the increase throughout the United States. In the five minutes or so it takes you to read this article 3 women will fall victim to sexual assault! We are all vulnerable. How will you protect yourself?

Pepper spray is an effective self-defense weapon that is both legal and non-lethal. Many of us are not comfortable carrying a handgun and even if you are, the legal liabilities can be life changing. In every self-defense scenario you will be better off with pepper spray than without.

Pepper spray acts as the “great equalizer” as it provides a smaller, physically weaker person the ability to defend themselves against a larger, stronger attacker. Pepper spray provides the ability to stop an attacker from a distance of 8-12 feet. In a self-defense situation, distance equals safety, so the ability to neutralize a potential attack is priceless.

The effects of pepper spray go to work almost immediately. The most aggressive attacker will feel the effects within seconds. Even individuals under the influence of pain masking drugs are affected. Spraying someone in the face with pepper spray causes the eyes to involuntarily close shut and the capillaries to swell causing temporary blindness. Even if an attacker can’t feel pain, they are much less dangerous if they can’t see.

Pepper spray goes to work on the respiratory system and wreaks havoc on breathing. The active ingredients cause inflammation within the respiratory system which makes breathing difficult. If you can’t breathe you can’t fight. Pepper spray is extremely painful when sprayed into the eyes, nose and mouth. The pain has been compared to having shards of glass in the eyes.

With any self-defense weapon, it’s important to practice and become familiar with your device. Pepper spray is available in different spray patterns and formulas, each with its own set of pro’s and con’s. If you opt for non-lethal self-defense you’ll be much better off in every scenario with pepper spray than without.

Popular Self Defense Items for Women

One of the most overlooked self defense items for women is this PAL keychain alarm with light. It is one of the most popular personal alarms, a.k.a. panic alarms, for women. It combines the two best deterrents against an attack: 130 dB ear piercing alarm and a bright flashing light. You can activate the alarm in two ways; first when the pin attached to the keychain is pulled, and second by pressing the alarm button on the top of the unit.

PAL 130
Personal alarms are effective self-defense items for women because they can alert people in your area that you may be in trouble and/or scare a potential assailant away. This particular panic alarm uses two AAA batteries that come with the unit and it is so small that it attaches to your keys easily.

There are thousands of personal security products available in the marketplace today. Many of them are the nonlethal self-defense items that are booming in popularity. A handgun continues to be the most popular lethal self-defense product. For reasons that we have discussed ad nauseam, many people do not want a lethal product in their house or on their person. It is just part of the reason why nonlethal self-defense products have become so popular.

Last week I saw one of my neighbors while we were gassing up at our local Costco store. She had a keychain in her hand and attached to it was a pepper spray. She reminded me that I had given it to her two years ago. She carries it with her wherever she goes.

She told me that her little keychain pepper spray made her feel safer and more in charge of her life, instilling a feeling of confidence.

Personal Security Products

The fact is that pepper spray, when used correctly, can be the “great equalizer”! The average male is some 5 inches taller and 30 pounds heavier than the average female. The difference in strength is typically significant as well. Pepper spray can flatten an assailant that is within the firing range almost instantly. Typical effects include difficulty breathing, inflammation of the mucus membranes, coughing and discharge, burning of the skin, involuntary shutting of the eyes and temporary blindness. The most valuable effect by far is the temporary blindness and involuntary closing of the eyes. Couple that with restricted breathing, inflammation and severe pain and you have an excellent personal security product capable of saving your life.

Our online store offers a big selection of colors, styles and price ranges from six of the most popular manufacturers of pepper sprays. We also carry many other non-lethal personal defense items.

When it comes to pepper spray or any defense item, it must be quickly accessible when you need it and you never know when you need it.

Why Are Nonlethal Personal Protection Weapons So Popular?

Share

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.

Disguised or concealed self defense weapons can give you the edge you may need to survive in an assault situation. Assailants use stealth and surprise as a major component of their strategy to overcome victims. Concealed self-defense weapons actually give you the opportunity to level the playing field by using surprise against your assailant.

One of the best known and most popular concealed self-defense weapons is this three in one pen self-defense spray from Sabre brand. It combines a 10% pepper spray using oleoresin capsicum is a major ingredient, a teargas component and an ultraviolet invisible marking dye for assailant identification after the fact of an assault. It looks just like a pen but is 2 million Scoville heat unit pepper spray that contains 15 half-second sprays up to 8 feet away.

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.

What Makes Sabre Red Crossfire MK 3 So Versatile

Share

Crossfire 3

The SABRE Red Crossfire MK 3 pepper spray is American-made. It contains a large amount of Major Capsaicinoids in its formula, making it unique from any other pepper spray on the market. Major Capsaicinoids (MC) produce the pain and heat that individuals feel when sprayed and are the only true measure of a pepper spray’s strength. The SABRE Spitfire pepper spray contains approximately four times the amount of MCs found in those commonly used by law enforcement officials. That is why it is so effective. Man oh man is it hot!

The Sabre Red Crossfire MK 3 uses the famous 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum Sabre red formula. It contains 20 half second shots up to as much as 20 feet away. It has a five year shelf life longer than any other brand of pepper spray on the market. It was the first brand of pepper spray to be nonflammable and Taser or ECD safe. It uses a ballistic stream spray pattern which decreases blowback. It has a fliptop safety cap to prevent accidental discharge.

The Sabre Red Crossfire MK 3 uses third-generation technology which allows Sabre OC canisters to fire continuously from any position. The fact is very few assailants or subjects stay static. In real life situation for police officers, aggressive and non-compliant behavior often results in subject countermeasures to avoid officer control and restraint. When that escalation gets to the point that calls for the use of pepper spray, subjects will frequently move, duck or attempt to block the spray. In the case of a pursuit, the officer cannot ask the target to stand still. When dynamic encounters ensue, the officer’s task of gaining control becomes increasingly difficult. SABRE Red Crossfire MK 3 was specifically developed to give officers the upper-hand when controlling dynamic subjects.That is why it is so versatile.

As a bonus SABRE Red Crossfire MK 3 contains an invisible UV marking dye that enables assailant identification after they have been sprayed.

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.

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.
