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.

These are just two examples of self-defense items for women that we carry in our online store. We have a wide variety of other self-defense products including stun guns and batons.

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?

What Are The Most Powerful Stun Guns?

Share

What are the most powerful stun guns? Of the thousands of stun guns in the marketplace today from hundreds of different manufacturers around the world, several of them stand out as being the most powerful. The Streetwise “small fry” has 11 million volts while the “SamStun” model cell stun gun has 6 million volts. A Stun Master product called the “runt”, has 20 million volts which makes it one of the most powerful stun guns.

As recently as ten years ago, a stun gun that had 1,000,000 volts was considered to be a powerful stun gun. Today you can still find stun guns with 1,000,000 volts and they are still effective. But due to advances in technology and demands of customers it is not uncommon today to find stun guns consistently in the 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 volt range and indeed much more powerful stun guns.

With acts of violence against women an ever-increasing threat, stun gun manufacturers like Streetwise, Stun Master, Guard Dog and others have made huge strides in developing smaller, more powerful stun guns. And believe it or not they are actually cheaper than they were even five years ago.

Stun Master brand has been making stun guns for the last 30 years and this 20,000,000 volt model called the “runt” is one of the most powerful stun guns as of this writing. It is rechargeable with a built-in slide out charger is only 3 ½ inches tall and 2 inches wide which is why it is called the “runt.”

Like all other Stun Master products it has a lifetime warranty. It has the popular disable pin wrist strap which when used properly disables the stun gun should be taken away from you in a struggle. As a bonus it has a built-in 120 lumen LED flashlight.

Technology is changing all the time and what is the most powerful stun gun today may be out gunned tomorrow.

In today’s blog post we’re doing a product review of the Mace brand Home Security System

The wireless window door sensor has a transmission range of up to 300 feet. When the motion detector or the door window sensor is triggered it sounds a 105 db alarm and sends a signal to the control unit which dials the first telephone number that you have in your programmed list. As many as five numbers can be on your list. The person answering the call will hear a prerecorded alert message and then can listen in on the room, broadcast their own message or disarm the system. If no one answers and the first phone call the next number is automatically dialed. There is a remote control that is included with the system that can arm and disarm the system. As many as 14 additional sensors can be added to cover a larger area.

This unit is an effective home security alarm featuring a auto dialer.

Indian Women Fight Back With OC Spray

Share

Here is a story from the Boston Globe about Indian women fighting back with self-defense pepper sprays.

You can read the whole story HERE.

Indian women are taking the initiative these days in learning self-defense techniques and how to use pepper spray for their own self-defense instead of the long-standing tradition of relying on male relatives to accompany them for safety. According to the story women are now learning self-defense techniques and sales of pepper spray have jumped. One class has hundreds of women in it and teaches how to target assailants groins-ouch! They teach women how to use their hands and how to strike with enough force so that the assailant will be in pain for as long as three months.

With an increasing number of women studying at universities and working in offices, it is no longer practical for them to travel accompanied by a father, husband, or brother.

“I tell people we don’t want to wait for society to reform, for male attitudes to change, for the police to arrive and act, and for our fathers, brothers, and husbands to protect us. Instead, we must focus our efforts on making ourselves physically and mentally strong to hit back.”

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves is with a self-defense product is nonlethal such as pepper spray. Any one of our Keychain Pepper Sprays can help you in a dangerous situation.

Assaults On Women

Share

This is a story from the Blackpool Gazette in the United Kingdom about Assaults On Women.

The gist of the story is that, on average, a woman will be hit or threatened by a partner 35 times before she reports it to the authorities.

“Historically domestic abuse is a hidden crime. What happens within four walls, stays within four walls.”

The abuse does not have to be physical it can be emotional verbal or psychological abuse to have the same degrading impact.

One reason that women put up with it for so long is because they fear they have no option and that there is no place to go. With their shelters all over the place and help from professionals.

Another form of abuse is being overly protective and possessive, preventing you from leading a normal lifestyle.

“It is a difficult area to deal with, but there are a number of reasons why people don’t report, or change their mind, which we have to have an understanding of – and we do have an understanding of.

“We are trained to recognize those signs. It can be coercion, it can be ongoing threats of violence. There are a number of reasons why victims change their mind after reporting and although it does frustrate the process, we understand the reasons behind it.”

If you are in a domestic abuse relationship, you don’t have to put up with it. You can develop an escape plan but most of all you need to learn how to protect yourself from further assaults. A self-defense pepper spray is one of the best ways you can do that.

The Wildfire Keychain Spray as shown here has an 18% solution of oleoresin capsicum the main ingredient in all pepper sprays. But 18% is nearly twice as hot as their competitors, making it more effective.

Knockout Assaults Suspect Arrested

Share

Here’s a story and video about the latest rage in assaults called Knockout Assaults.

The knockout game is spreading across the country like wildfire. It is a situation that uses innocent citizens who are the victims of unprovoked attacks where the goal of the “game” is to knock out the victim in one punch. These attacks are particularly vicious because frequently they happen to senior citizens or women.

We always recommend having some nonlethal self-defense product such as a pepper spray or a stun device with you. Pepper sprays have some restrictions but are legal everywhere. They can disable any assailant for as much as 45 minutes allowing you time to escape a potentially dangerous situation.

Domestic Violence, Drugs And Alcohol

Share

This is a story about Domestic Violence specifically in an area south west of Colorado Springs in the mountains. Domestic violence, in the Colorado Domestic Violence Benchbook, is defined as “one partner’s effort to control the other partner using a variety of tactics that may involve both criminal or non-criminal acts.” Such acts can include assault, arson, murder, burglary, kidnapping, threats and stalking.

Domestic violence behaviors include verbal harassment or criminal mischief, for example when a suspect tears up a house or destroys property.

“Ninety-five percent of domestic violence cases involve the use of drugs or alcohol. We also handle more domestic violence cases in winter, probably because people are confined. Plus, often domestic violence stems from financial issues. In the winter, some people are working less or not at all.”

Ending domestic abuse and sexual assault against women may be a pipe dream, but women need to learn how to defend themselves-which is reality.

Sexual Assaults On College Campuses

Share

One week ago today Pres. Obama signed a memorandum creating a task force to combat sexual assaults on the nation’s college campuses. He gave the task force 90 days to draw some recommendations on how to deal with sexual assaults on college campuses-both on how to prevent them and how people respond to them-specifically law enforcement and University officials.

Read the whole story HERE

The White House released a report that shows that many female college student face this problem. Some of these staggering statistics are:

1. One in five women have been assaulted in college.

2. 12% of those victims report that they were sexually assaulted.

3. 22 million American women have been raped in her lifetime.

4. 98% of perpetrators are male.

5. Almost all of the perpetrators are known to the victim-mostly because they are classmates.

“One of the major points of the report shows that the judicial response to sexual assaults has been inadequate, noting the lack of prosecutions and convictions. The report also notes that victims of sexual assault could suffer from depression or other physical ailments because of the abuse.”

Students from several major universities have filed complaints under title IX and the Clery Act.

We have been writing about this issue for years and feel it’s about time somebody high on the food chain took notice. The White House is calling for a culture shift on sexual assaults on college campuses. We wish them luck.

The best way to defend yourself against the sexual assault on campus or anywhere for that matter is with a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or stun gun. We specifically recommend a product that’s on a keychain because that way it’s more likely to be with you wherever you go.

We always recommend that women carry a self-defense product like this Fox Labs Hard Case Keychain that has 5.3 million Scoville heat units and fires a heavy stream pattern up to 10 feet away. It’s taser/ECD compatible too.

Young Women And Relationship Violence

Share

About 10 years ago the Liz Claiborne Corporation did a comprehensive study about teenage dating and the perils associated with it such as assaults that are normally connected to domestic violence. Recently there was another study done and the conclusions and facts presented were almost exactly the same. What does that mean? That nothing has gotten better for young women in their dating relationships!

Teenage girls are at a high risk of relationship violence. Some of the facts are:

1. 15% of high school girls reports being abused by their boyfriends;

2. Date rape which accounts for 70% of sexual assaults reported by adolescents in college;

3. 38% of those are between 14 and 17;

4. One in three teen dating relationships has a physical aggression component.

5. Nearly 75% girls have reported some sort of emotional partner violence.

One of the points raised in this most recent study is that young women really have no place to learn what is normal and what is not normal in a dating relationship. When these young women talk to their friends many of them are experiencing the same thing so they tend to think that abuse is a normal thing.

Recently Pres. Obama announced from the White House the formation of the new task force looking into sexual assaults on college campuses. Those statistics haven’t changed much over the years either, with one for women being a target for sexual assault in her four years at a University.

Has your daughter been involved in a dating relationship that went bad?

Some signs that your daughter may be in an abusive relationship include:

1. Not spending time with her usual friends;

2. Fewer friends on Facebook;

3. More withdrawn personality or less bubbly and engaged than usual;

4. Changes in appearance style or activities;

5. Obvious physical signs of abuse;

6. Defensive, angry attitude about current physical status.

For young women we recommend that they take a basic self-defense training course to learn how to defend themselves in just about any situation and then obtain and learn how to use a self-defense product such as a pepper spray.

New Way To Handle College Sexual Assault Complaints

Share

When the California legislature reconvenes in January, assembly member Mike Gatto from Los Angeles is introducing a bill that would amend the state code of education requiring colleges to report sexual assaults that occur on or near college campuses to local police departments.

This is a huge change from the way assaults on college campuses are handled now. Now they are either swept under the carpet, investigated in a halfhearted manner or completely mishandled. In any event the punishments are ludicrous all in an effort to avoid a public relations nightmare which the universities cannot afford.

As college students across the country are aware, several groups have filed title IX complaints against some high profile universities for the way they have handled (mishandled) sexual assault complaints.

We have always recommended that female students on a college campus always carry a self-defense product with them.

The awesome Tornado Self-Defense System shown above is a complete personal defense system that combines pepper spray, personal alarm and emergency strobe light all-in-one system that has an attachment that allows you to wear it on your arm. The alarm is 125 dB, the strobe light pulses illumination that attracts needed attention and the spray can reach as much as 15 feet away in a 2 to 3 foot circumference.

Domestic Violence-A Problem For Everyone

Share

That was the headline recently that 98% of adults in California believe that domestic violence can happen to anyone. Statistics of all kinds back that up. Domestic violence crosses all racial, ethnic, age, religious belief, social and economic barriers. We call it an “equal opportunity destroyer of lives.”

There are a wide variety of reasons why domestic violence is so under-reported in the first place. Among them are shame and fear of reprisal, not just from the spouse but you can include a spouse’s family as well. Until recently there was plenty of anecdotal evidence that showed reporting a domestic violence assault rarely got the attention that it deserved. So you can add that to the mix of the reasons why it wasn’t reported.

Fortunately law enforcement officers and courts have taken a more serious look at domestic violence for what it is-an assault.

When you look to the causes for domestic violence they are as varied as you can possibly get. Chief among them are economic conditions. Disagreements and arguments over finances in a family cause a great deal of stress, which frequently leads to physical confrontations including murder. Poverty, low education levels, social status and mental illness all follow suit as possible reasons or causes for domestic violence.

We still feel that domestic violence is a learned trait. Young men learn from their abusive fathers. They see that there are rarely any repercussions for the domestic violence and figure that it’s okay. That thinking and that pattern has to change.

Those are some of the reasons why domestic violence is so under-reported, some of the commonly accepted causes of this crime and how to prevent an assault on you in a domestic violence situation.

After all, we are talking about an assault which can and has led to serious injury, including death. You have a right to defend yourself in any way that you can.

One of the best ways to defend against assaults even domestic abuse assaults is with a self-defense product such as our WildFire Pepper Spray.

New Purse Snatching Technique

Share
more info here

ABC did a story recently about the latest technique that criminals used to steal purses from women. The people who do it are called “sliders.” These criminals pull in next to a parked car that is driven by a woman at a gas station. They know that most women leave their purses or handbags on the front seat when they get out to fill up their gas tank. They also know that most women do not block their car doors while they’re gassing up.

The criminal “slides” out of his car and crab walks to the victim’s car opening the passenger side door, steals the purse and gets back into his car driving away without the woman knowing what happened.

For a better explanation watch the ABC VIDEO HERE.

Tips To Protect Against Sliders

If you want to protect yourself against this kind of crime don’t leave valuables inside your car even if you’re only a few feet away. Lock your car door whenever you are out of the car. And have a self-defense product handy so you can use it to fend off would be robbers.

This Pepper Shot Pepper Spray has an attachment that attaches to your car visor and contains 10 half-second bursts up to 8 feet.
