Does the Pink Pepper Spray work better than the other colors?

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 3 March, 2010

I am always getting questions in the e-mail. What self defense product would you suggest for this situation? Do you ship internationally? What is the difference between this product and that one?

When I get a particularly good question, I try to incorporate the answer into the product description in case others have the same question. Likewise, when I get a product question I refer back to the product page to verify that I didn’t already include those extra details. Many times the answer was there and the customer simply overlooked that section.

Like the saying goes “The only stupid question is the one you don’t ask…” I did however get an unusual question the other day from a female prospective customer.

At first I wasn’t sure if it was a joke, or a serious inquiry. I resisted the urge to immediately respond that the color of the plastic casing had no bearing on the effectiveness of the product. I could have simply reassured this person that the black, red, blue or pink models were all equal.

Instead I pondered what other meaning could possibly be behind this question. Yes, I was bored and had some free time to spare…

So I carefully crafted the following answer:

“Yes, the pink pepper spray works better. Physically, the pepper spray contained in each colored container is identical. Psychologically, if you are more apt to actually carry the pink colored model, it will be 100% more effective than a black, blue or red container that you leave at home or don’t practice using. I would suggest the Wildfire 18% Pepper spray keychain over the Pepper Shot 10% pepper spray keychain. – In pink, if that is your favorite color.”

After I already sent that reply, I second thought my response. But it was too late, sent means sent. Now I was hoping I didn’t come across negatively, slightly sarcastic, or otherwise rude. Oh well, what are you going to do, right?

So a couple of hours later, I heard back from this woman. Not in the form of an e-mail reply, but on a purchase notification.

She placed an order for five Wildfire Pepper Spray key chains. Four in pink, one in blue.

I’m not sure what she is going to do with the blue one. Maybe that one is for her husband or son.

Everyone procrastinates. No big deal right?

I hate mowing the lawn. More often then not, the grass in my yard ends up taller then it should be by the time I get around to cutting it. Oh well, no one is going to die over it.

I’m sure you can think of several things you should have already done, but have yet to start. I’m sure you have a slew of excuses on why they haven’t been finished. No time, no money, no motivation, would rather watch TV, maybe someone else will do it for me…

Let’s go back to my yard for a minute.

No time – well that’s debatable, but I can usually find a spare hour if I really try.

No money – gas is pretty expensive these days, but my 2 1/2 gallon gas can in the garage lasts quite a few mowings, especially how often I get out there

No motivation – now we are getting closer.

Would rather watch TV – I can think of plenty of things I’d rather do than mow the lawn.

Maybe someone else will do it for me – the kids can’t grow up fast enough to take over this responsibility, but no such luck yet.

What about a more serious issue?

I get plenty of people visiting my website, some buy, some don’t. I understand people surfing for information, then taking some time to make up their mind. But I’m sure some people are taking an unusually long time to decide or ultimately end up deciding not to bother. Or saying “I’ll get one later”. No big deal right?

Well procrastinating about grass cutting and procrastinating about protecting the safety and well-being of yourself, your loved ones or your belongings is quite a different story.

Seriously, If not now, then when?

Coulda, shoulda, woulda is NOT what you want to be saying to yourself after hopefully surviving an incident that coulda, shoulda, woulda ended up differently if you bought some pepper spray, a stun gun, taser or any of our wide variety of self defense related products.

You never know when you, your spouse, your parents, or your child might draw the attention of an ill-intentioned creep. If that happens and you are not prepared, hopefully the loss is only material related. Stolen purse, stolen wallet. Could be prevented, but no one had to get beat up, raped or killed.

More serious, if the problem did escalate or the money was not the target, hopefully procrastination did not leave you high and dry.

Purchase your self-defense weapons of choice, and practice using them. Know how, when and why to use them. Arm yourself, arm your spouse, arm your kids away at college, or anyone else you care about if you feel they would procrastinate protecting themselves.

Cell phone stun guns are great, no one would notice the difference between it and a real cellular phone. Keychain pepper sprays are convenient and easy to use. You always have your keys on you, make it a habit to carry your keys by the keychain pepper spray canister and always have it ready to deploy if necessary.

I just had a pepper spray order the other day from a 4th degree martial arts black belt, well versed in several martial arts. He told me he believed even someone like himself should carry and equalizer or two.

Have options, know what to do, be aware, be safe and be protected.

You and your family are Worth Protection. Don’t procrastinate any longer.

Seriously, If not now, then when?

Yours in safety,
