Share

If you’re like countless others, personal security is a major concern, yet owning a handgun is not an option. You’re not alone, gun ownership is a huge responsibility that many are unwilling to make. The consequences of pulling the trigger in self-defense can be life changing. If this describes you, then what are your choices?

You have the right and responsibility create a safe environment for yourself and family. Crime is all around us, burglary, assault, rape, murder and home invasion are some of the most prevalent. Plenty of people are turning to non-lethal self defense products. These products are proven effective, yet the effects are temporary and cause no long term harm.

The most popular option is pepper spray or Mace. This inexpensive self defense spray is extremely effective at stopping an aggressive attacker. Capsaicin is the active ingredient which is derived from the extraction of oleoresin capsicum from peppers. A shot of pepper spray in the eyes, nose or mouth goes to work instantly to cause pain, trouble breathing, and temporary blindness. Pepper spray products offer varying effective ranges from about 6 feet to over 20 feet.

Stun guns and Tasers provide knock down power, require no license to own and operate, and are compact in size, making them convenient to carry. In addition, most units have built in LED flashlights that come in handy when trying to locate your keys or open a door. Stun guns are equipped with safety features that greatly reduce the chances of accidental firing. Numerous studies point to the overall safety of stun devices. Taser International alone has spent $4.5 million dollars over the last 5 years for medical research to ensure the safe use of stun devices.

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.

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.

Fox Defensive Pepper Sprays-Powerful Personal Protection

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.

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!

What Is The Best Weapon For Your Self Defense?

If you could choose one weapon for self-defense, which would it be?

For women the ability to defend themselves from a distance is very appealing. Most pepper sprays have a range of at least 8 feet some as high as 18 feet. Women have more opportunities to use a self-defense weapon because they are assaulted nine times more often than men.

And if you need any more convincing consider this. Every law enforcement officer in the country carries a pepper spray on his utility belt. It is a key component in their continuum of force that all law enforcement officers use in the apprehension and control of suspects in a criminal case. It is often their first nonlethal choice in the performance of their duties.

Additionally, all letter carriers with the U.S. Postal Service are issued, pepper sprays as a first line of defense against dog attacks.

So my question to you is, if it is good enough for law enforcement officers and good enough for letter carriers shouldn’t it be good enough for you and your self-defense?

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.

Colleges Working On Campus Sexual Assaults

Share

Here’s a story about a college that is attempting to improve Sexual Assault Procedures.

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act takes effect soon. It holds institutions of higher education responsible for the prevention of sexual violence, not just responding to it after assaults occur.

“It also establishes standard procedures for disciplining those found guilty, and requires greater transparency on sexual violence policy and procedures, not just about rape but also domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.”

This has been brought about because of the Obama administration’s task force on protecting students from sexual assault which comes out with his best practices study next month. This is in response to the growing number of female victims who have been sexually assaulted on campus and were completely unhappy with the way their institutions handled the matter.

In the past at many universities if there has been a complaint of sexual assault, the issue has been investigated by a group of peers in the University honor system. Many of these universities have an honor code that dates back to the mid-1800s. The only sanction is expulsion which for many students is way too severe. Therein lies the problem.

The victim should be encouraged to use of police and criminal justice system for a more thorough investigation and better resolution than a slap on the wrist.

The best way for women to protect themselves anywhere but especially on a college campus is with one of our pepper sprays. They can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes giving you time to get away and seek help.

We recommend this MaceTriple Action Spray that has a teargas component and a UV marking DYE along with a 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum.
