Popular Self Defense Items for Women

Share

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.

Another inexpensive self-defense items for women is this Pepper Shot 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum rated at 2 million Scoville heat units keychain pepper spray. It contains 10 half-second shots up to 10 feet away and represents one of the best values in self-defense items for women. It has a thumb lock safety actuator to prevent accidental discharge and includes a UV marking dye for assailant identification.

What Are The Best Personal Security Products?

Share

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. So get in the habit of having it with you and ready wherever you go. Law enforcement officers carry pepper spray on their utility belt as their first line of self-defense. Why shouldn’t you?

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.

What Gives Concealed Self Defense Weapons The Edge?

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.

Another one of our popular concealed self-defense weapons that is made by Streetwise is this “Immobilizer” 5.5 million volt hot pink stun gun that has the look and feel of a high-end cell phone. It uses six LED lights for a flashlight that is built-in. It is only 4 inches tall so it is small enough to conceal in your hand. It has a built-in slide out charger that plugs into any standard wall outlet. There are two levels of safety built-in to this concealed self-defense weapon to prevent accidental discharge. This product has our famous no questions asked lifetime warranty.

Those are just a few examples of how concealed self-defense weapons can give you the edge. These nonlethal self-defense products are so effective that every law enforcement officer in the country carries at least one and usually two on his utility belt as his first nonlethal alternative to the deadly force of a handgun.

When you get right down to it, there are very few instances that would justify the use of deadly force in your self defense protecting your home, your loved ones or yourself. Those instances do exist and in several states for example, so-called “stand your ground” laws or the “Castle doctrine” give you the right to use deadly force legally.

But that authority aside, many people, especially women, have a hard time shooting someone with a handgun when another alternative is available. That alternative is nonlethal self-defense weapons.

They offer many choices but the main ones are pepper sprays, stun devices, personal alarms, batons and other assorted personal defense products. They are all effective in their own way. Pepper sprays and stun guns for example are 90% effective on average.

Pepper sprays are legal everywhere with just a few cities and states having restrictions on them. A shot in the face with a pepper spray can provide immediate pain for the assailant, immediate relief from an attack, considerable tearing of the eyes and makes breathing very difficult for the bad guy.

Every law enforcement officer in the country carries some nonlethal self-defense weapons on his utility belt for use in the performance of his duties. They are part of his continuum of force that he employs in pursuing and catching suspects in a crime. Police officers rely on pepper sprays for crowd control and suspect apprehension.

Every letter carrier with the USPS is issued a pepper spray for defense against dog attacks. They provide a first-line defense against dog attacks letter carriers who are attacked by dogs a regular basis around the country.

Pepper Spray For Runners – How To Protect Yourself Outdoors

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.

Dog Attacks-Three Times Higher In Deprived Areas

Share

Here is a story from England about Dog Attacks in areas that are deprived.

“The number of dog bites leading to hospital admission is three times higher among people living in the deprived areas study from Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has revealed.

Hospital admissions for dog attacks are three times higher in deprived area than affluent regions in England.

According to the report, there were 6,743 hospital admissions specifically by dog attacks, a 5.8% increase from the 6,372 admissions last year.”

Dr Simon Harding, a lecturer in criminology at the University of Middlesex said: “Deprived areas are often more populous with larger families, more children, more pets and more people living in closer proximity to each other and dogs. Also dogs tend to be exercised in public, rather than in gardens or remote fields. At the same time people in poorer areas use dogs for protection, instead of alarms or house insurance and there is an underlying trend towards the use of aggressive Pit Bull-type breeds as weapon or status dogs.”

Tips For Assault Prevention

Share

Here is an interesting story and video about a self-defense instructor who teaches Assault Avoidance Tips. The main thing that he teaches women in his class is to act fast not think. The reason for this is simple: when you’re in a life or death situation, reaction times are critical. A few seconds lost thinking about what to do instead of reacting may cost you your life.

He has some simple tactics and tips to keep women safe in any kind of situation

• “Wear a purse that goes across your body, not over your shoulder.
• Keep pepper spray or a small pocket knife on your keys, and hold them as though you’re ready to attack.
• Walk with your hand inside your purse, so you can grab that spray as fast as possible.
• Other simple weapons to keep in your purse: A screwdriver, scissors, or even a pencil.
• Walk with scissors dangling in your hands, no one will think anything but the potential attacker.
• Buy a small gun, one that can clip to your bra and aim for the groin area.”

Sexual Assault As Normal?

Share

Here’s a story from the Huffington Post about perceptions that young women have about Sexual Assaults.

It raises one potential answer to why so many sexual assault crimes-nearly 250,000 a year ago-go unreported 60% of the time. The answer is many women do not see themselves as victims.

A sociologist at Marquette University analyzed interviews with 100 girls between the ages of three and 17 who may have experienced sexual assault. Overwhelmingly, their accounts indicated sexual violence has been normalized in their communities and they considered harassment an everyday part of life rather than a criminal act.

The same study identified several reasons why these assaults are not reported including; shame fear of retribution and mistrust of authority. “The most alarming conclusion, however, is that young women regard sexual violence against them as normal. Moreover, the girls interviewed believed that men ‘can’t help it’ and perceived ‘everyday harassment and abuse as normal male behavior.”

“One participant — only 13 years old — said harassment is standard in her school: ‘They grab you, touch your butt and try to, like, touch you in the front, and run away, but it’s OK, I mean… I never think it’s a big thing because they do it to everyone.'”

This study may account for many factors when it comes to sexual assault on women in high school and college and may even be a forerunner to domestic violence.

People in position of authorities like teachers and parents must teach young men and young women that sexual violence is not acceptable before media and community norms give the impression that it is.

Teen Relationship Violence

Share

This is a story about how Teen Dating Violence is a growing concern all over the country. As many as one in three young women have reported they have been in a relationship where they have been injured or hurt in some way. But because of their inexperience and lack of knowledge officials say the worst part is that many teens do not even know the abuse is happening.

There is actually a move afoot to start teaching young teenagers in middle school about relationships and what constitutes a healthy one versus an unhealthy one. That idea is actually gaining traction because where else will teens learn about this topic? Right now many teens gain their knowledge of a relationship from electronic media including social media and friends and family.

That is why so many of them have no clue what a healthy relationship is or where the boundaries are.

We have always recommended that teenagers carry a self-defense product with them to defend themselves should they be physically assaulted.

Sexual Assaults In The Military

Share

This is a story about Military Sexual Assaults and the scourge that it has on military personnel. According to the Women’s Bureau between 20% and 48% of all female veterans have been sexually assaulted.

This is been going on for a long time according to them but only recently as its severity been brought to the public’s attention.

In 2012 for example soldiers were 15 times more likely to be raped by a comrade than being killed by an enemy.

Two women U.S. senators are working to change that: Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Kirsten Gillibrand. We note with interest that no male senators joined the bandwagon. We feel certain that is just a coincidence. Gillibrand has criticized Pres. Obama for failing to issue stronger reforms to protect survivors of military sexual assault.

“According to the U.S. Defense Department, out of an estimated 26,000 sexual assaults in 2012, only 3,374 were reported. The low reporting rate is unsurprising – 60 percent of victims stated that they experienced consequences for coming forward and only 302 perpetrators were actually prosecuted.

These rates echo those of civilian rape; however, there is a strong argument that this is not a societal problem but a military problem.”

The rape differential in the military reveals that the military sexual assault rate is lower than the rate of civilian rape but higher than any other military crime. The recruiting process serves to weed out those with criminal records, yet this does not appear to hold true for rates of sexual assault.

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves against sexual assault is with a self-defense item that is nonlethal. They are legal just about everywhere and are an inexpensive, effective way to defend yourself against any type of assault.

We always recommend a product that can be carried on a keychain that way it is with you at all times.

The Mace PepperGard Keychain is a good example. It has 20 half-second bursts up to 12 feet away and contains a UV marking dye too.

Domestic Violence Reviews

Share

Here is a story out of Jacksonville about reviews of Domestic Violence cases that occurs in Georgia.

According to an in-depth review of the cases conducted by prosecutors and other experts one out of every six Georgians killed as a result of domestic violence has sought help from a shelter or safe house.

Nearly 100 cases have been subjected to these intense reviews. Looking at all of them, the authors of the latest report identified some major elements that seem to correlate.

For instance, roughly one of every four murder victims began their relationship with their killer while still a teenager. And almost all of the victims had decided to leave the relationship or were considering it, what experts call the most dangerous moment. Only 58% of the perpetrators had a job.

The question is why these victims still died after going to the trouble to seek out assistance.

“Limited financial resources can be the single greatest barrier to leaving an abusive relationship.”

Domestic violence does not discriminate based on age, economic status, race, religion or education and impacts not only its victims, but those who witness it.

One in four women will be victims of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or financial abuse at some point in her lifetime.

One of the best ways to defend yourself against any kind of an attack, especially a domestic abuse assault is with the self-defense product such as our 8,000,000 volt Small Fry Stunner that is only 4 inches long. A stun device can incapacitate an assailant for as long as 10 minutes giving you more than enough time to get away and seek help. No long-lasting damage is done. They are not legal in all states, so check with your local law enforcement office before you get one.

Dog Attack Kills Toddler/Grandma

Share

Here’s a story from the Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona about Dog Attacks.

A family there suffered a terrible tragedy when their nine-month-old baby was mauled by their pet dog-an Akita. The mother left the baby in the family room for a few minutes when the Akita knocked down a gate and went after the child. The dog apparently has a history of violence attacking both the older sister and the infant’s mother.

An official noted that it is not uncommon to keep dogs that have violent history but that all dogs matter how long they’ve been part of the family can turn on you an attack.

Recently in Arizona, a 77-year-old woman was attacked while she was giving medicine to a dog that had been with the family for years. She subsequently died.

Giving a dog plenty of exercise and training — and doing this from the time they are puppies will help prevent attacks, no matter what breed of dog.
