Unique Pepper Spray Products

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 3 March, 2010

One of the biggest concerns of using pepper spray is the fear that once deployed, the product may overspray backwards and affect the user as well as the attacker. Of course this may be an issue if you spray into the wind, or if you are in a close quarters area. However, if self defense was an iPhone, there’s an app for that… (Note: These are not actual iPhone apps…)

Typically pepper spray comes in a stream spray pattern and a fogger cloud pattern. There are others, but these are the most common. If you have ever used Windex, or other spray bottle cleaning products, you probably have turned the square shaped head of the spray bottle. There is an off, stream and spray setting. Your pepper spray stream models shoot out in a stream pattern much like this stream setting. You would need to read your package, but most of the stream model keychain pepper sprays go about 8-10 feet. The larger pepper spray cans may shoot the stream in the 12-18 foot range, depending on the product specs.

The fogger models shoot out a fog of pepper spray, resembling an aerosol air freshener, such as a standard can of Glade. The fogger spray pattern is much less precise than the stream model, allowing you to engulf the target in a cloud of OC spray, rather than having to get a direct spray shot to the face. But as you can imagine, the fogger has a greater possible chance of overspray if you are not careful.

Mace Pepper FoamNow for the pepper spray apps…

Mace Pepper Foam is a 10% OC Pepper formula that contains the popular UV Ultra-Violet marking dye. The pepper foam sprays in a thick foam, much like shaving cream. This OC foam acts like a “blindfold” and disorients an attacker while also causing the same “burning” and closing of the eyes as any normal liquid pepper spray would. The foaming action causes the attacker to want to wipe off, or rub out the foam from their eyes. This in turn, causes the foam to foam up more and grinds the pepper into their eyes.

Mace Pepper GelOur next pepper spray app is the Mace Pepper Gel. This formula suspends the OC in gel instead of a liquid stream, much like a cross between ketchup and honey. Sure that may sound tasty, but this is far from a delicious condiment. This Pepper Gel formulation also results in several advantages, such as a longer distance, sticks on the attacker’s face like glue, less contaminating, and non-flammable.

Both the Mace Pepper Foam and Gel are ideal for auto, personal (walking, running, etc.), or home use. These new pepper foam and gel formulas are one of the newest and most ingenious products available in our self defense spray line.

Mace Pepper GunOur last iPhone-like self defense pepper spray app is another revolutionary self defense product. The new Mace Pepper Gun, one of the most accurate defense pepper spray available.

The super strength OC pepper spray formula is contained in disposable cartridges that can be replaced when empty. These cartridges use an advanced Bag-In-A-Can™ technology delivery system that allows you to spray a constant stream, reaching up to 25 feet, from any angle! Think hand held super-soaker squirt gun, spraying pepper spray.

There is even a trigger activated LED light helps you to accurately aim the Pepper Spray Gun and even momentarily distracts your attacker in the dark. This self defense unit includes an OC Pepper cartridge, a water test cartridge (practice makes perfect), and batteries for LED light operation in the package.

You can also buy extra replacement water cartridges for more practice, practice, practice…

All pepper spray products are inflammatory agents. They will all induce coughing, choking and nausea, as well as dilating the capillaries in the eyes, resulting in temporary blindness. Once you spray an attacker with pepper spray, you should immediately flee to safety and call the police from a safe distance. Pepper sprays with UV marking dye will aid in the identification of the assailant, that is if a blinded, coughing, choking thug flailing around on the ground isn’t evidence enough.

Don’t be afraid to spice up your self defense arsenal.

Be Safe, Be Prepared, Practice, Practice, Practice using your Self Defense Products.

Shady Pepper Spray Deal

Posted by Rob on Friday, 12 February, 2010

I was walking down the aisle between desks at my Dilbert cube job the other day. This co-worker sees me and waves me over to him.

“Hey man…” he whispers.

Playing along, I whispered back “What’s up?”

He looks around cautiously, lowers his head and voice, and whispers “Hey man, do you still sell those self defense products?”

Still playing along, I look side to side cautiously and whisper back “Yeah man, why are we whispering?”

He ignores my question and continues to whisper “Do you think I should buy some pepper spray for my wife?”

I thought it was kind of an odd question so I replied “I don’t know, do you think you should buy your wife some pepper spray?”, and yes I still humored him and whispered.

Smartly, he did answer this question by saying, I mean whispering “Yeah, sometimes she works late, and then stops off at the gym or grocery store. I don’t like her walking alone in the empty parking lots by herself.” I believe that’s about what I made out; I was getting kind of annoyed straining to hear him whisper.

At this point since we were being all secretive and shady drug dealer like, I wished I was wearing a long trench coat so I could look around cautiously and open up one side of the coat, and display my wares like they were stolen or fake Rolex watches. I would have pulled out my smart phone and let him look at the webpage on my phone, but I had let the battery run out overnight and had to leave it in my car charging.

Assuming he wouldn’t be comfortable going over to his cube and typing up the website on his PC since he was already nervous, I suggested that we head out to the parking lot during lunch and I could “hook him up”. There I go again sounding all drug dealer like… no wonder he kept whispering and looking around…

When we got out to my car, I handed him a catalog, and showed him a few items I had on hand. He found a few things he wanted, and another couple things I didn’t have on me that he wanted to order.

“I don’t suppose you take credit cards do you?” he asked.

This was the point I felt it necessary to point out that 1) these products are 100% LEGAL and didn’t need to whisper around about like he was looking for pot, and 2) yes I have a legitimate business, and take cash, check and yes, all major credit cards.

He kind of laughed and indicated he wasn’t exactly sure, but wanted some items to protect himself and his wife in case anything happened just the same.

“Oh, so all of these items aren’t just for your wife who works late?” I wanted to ask, but I figured I tortured this poor soul enough. I figure the lecture about “how carrying self-defense products do not make you less of a man” could wait until next time.

But this whole incident did shed some light on a common misconception some people must have. Self defense products aren’t just for the meek. Men and women can both benefit from arming themselves with pepper spray, stun guns, TASER devices or any other available self defense weapons.

Haven’t they ever seen Dogg the Bounty Hunter? He’s a pretty rough and tough man’s man, and he is always packing a can of Mace defensive spray or a telescopic steel baton… Of course he is willingly putting himself into harm’s way on a regular basis, so you can imagine he would routinely want to make sure he has an advantage.

Also, you won’t find a manly police officer without a firearm, pepper spray, TASER Device or some form of baton or billy club with them at all times while on duty (and probably a couple of those items when he is off-duty).

But even if you are Joe average citizen, it doesn’t mean you won’t find yourself in a compromising situation when you might need to defend yourself or a loved one. You never know, and you’d rather be safe, than sorry.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Cheap Electronics, Good for Consumers, Bad for Burglars

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 10 February, 2010

British crime research has recently reported that the influx of cheap electronic goods coming out of Asian countries may have affected the criminal standard operation procedures.

James Treadwell, a University of Leicester criminology lecturer explains that while a profit could be easily turned in the 1980s and 90s, cheap labor in China and Taiwan has made traditional home burglary less profitable today.

“Gradually, the prices of such goods has fallen so low as to they almost have no resale value. If you can buy a DVD player for 19.99 pounds ($32 US), it’s simply not worth stealing,” says Treadwell.

A British crime survey has reported a decline in domestic burglary over the past decade during a public interview. These numbers were applauded by the labor government, citing a crackdown on crime must have been successful.

However, there has been an increase in personal robbery and muggings. Treadwell attributes this to an effective “career change” by criminals.

Instead of breaking into homes, these crooks are now simply targeting smaller but pricier items such as iPods, cell phones, and other expensive gadgets that people commonly carry around with them.

This makes sense. Have you ever looked at the actual price of those fancy new smartphones? Sure you are getting a deal when you sign up for new service and get a free phone. Or when you upgrade to a new 2 year cellular agreement and are only charged $150 for the phone, but look at the actual retail price without all the discounts. Those are $400-600 phones. The 64GB iPod touch runs $399.

“It is these expensive, personal items, which are the most attractive to thieves today as they still retain value and can therefore be sold on, igniting a career change for criminals from the more traditional household burglaries to personal muggings,” says Treadwell.

It even appears that dogs are not immune to crime either. I just read a report about a terrier in Brooklyn who was mugged. Apparently the owner tied the pooch up outside of a supermarket, while she ran inside to grab a gallon of milk.

A few short minutes later, the woman exited the store to find her shivering little doggie missing his $25 leather trimmed, green wool coat and belt.

“How could anyone steal a coat off someone’s back in the freezing cold?” the 42-year-old owner reported to the local paper. “I was so angry, but in the end I was grateful that it was just the coat and not him.”

So in the case of the dog, he just got screwed by his owner. Thanks for leaving me unattended.

But you have a choice, and you have several self-defense options. On the cheap, for under $10 you can arm yourself with a key chain pepper spray. For under $60, you can get your hands on Stun Master Multi-Function Rechargeable Stun Gun. If safety is a higher concern than the price tag, you can always go the Vanessa Hudgens route and get yourself a C2 TASER. As I’ve said before, Your Life is Worth more to us than the Cost of a TASER Device. And it won’t even be the most expensive gadget in your pocket.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Tom and Jerry Vs. Tommy Vercetti

Posted by Rob on Monday, 1 February, 2010

Back in the day (and by that I refuse to admit it was that too long ago), we used to play “cops and robbers” or “cowboys and indians”. Opps, am I still allowed to call that game that or is there a newer politically correct term? When we played video games, we were playing Centipede, Pac-Man and the original Donkey Kong. Yes, the one when Mario was second billed to a monkey.

We used to actually play dodge ball in gym class! We watched violent cartoons like “Bugs Bunny” and “Tom and Jerry”. And it seemed like society was pretty normal, at least it seemed the news wasn’t reporting as much crime and adolescent mayhem.

More recently, children are exposed to the likes of Tommy Vercetti, the popular character from “Grand Theft Auto 4 – Vice City”. He is a perfect stereotypical bad guy that gets what he wants by any means necessary. Not the best role model.

Computer games don’t affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.
Marcus Brigstocke

You are always seeing reports about how today’s video games are negatively influencing our youngsters to such an extent that they actually want to gravitate towards violence. The sad part is that some misguided adolescents actually find it funny and amusing, while killing “school mates with a gun”, slashing your dad’s throat with a knife over a video game, or just trying to rob a jewelry store for kicks and laughs.

I suppose this is a far cry from a cat and mouse smacking each other silly with a frying pan or wooden mallet, then immediately getting up and returning the favor before running away. Did we just understand action/consequence better back then? I mean I would watch the cartoons, laugh, and then NOT hit my brother with a frying pan. I knew the difference. What is so different today?

Take for instance that botched “Benson Jewelry and Loan” robbery attempt a couple years ago by Brandon Bowie and Kendall Tealer. Fortunately for the owners, but unfortunately for the would-be burglars, there was a gun behind the shop counter for security.

While Bowie pulled a gun on one of the owners, the other owner pulled their gun on 18-year-old Bowie and 17-year-old Tealer. Bowie was shot and fell inside the business and ended up paralyzed, Tealer was shot then collapsed and died outside when attempting to flee. The authorities found in favor of the store owner, and deemed he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot the two armed robbers.

It was later reported that both of those burglars had a disturbed childhood and a history of criminal activity already at an early age. You can bet it wasn’t from watching “Tom and Jerry”, but is quite similar to something you might see in Grand Theft Auto I, II, III or IV.

Nonetheless, the important thing is that in this unfortunate day and age of violence, you can never be safe enough. I personally consider those people with Pepper Spray cans or TASER Devices for self defense to be much wiser than those wandering around oblivious to the possibility that they may need to protect themselves. Even worse, when you might need to protect a loved one from harm.

It’s nice to think you will just run away and make it, but that is pretty weak when you leave your wife in high-heels lagging behind, or your children unable to catch up.

You see, some people understand that dangerous opportunities don’t leisurely stroll up to you and wait until you are ready after knocking. They just run right up, violently knock you over and can leave you completely lifeless.

Your best bet is to be alert, and be prepared, packing self defense weapons at the ready, backed by having practiced using said items so you are both competent and confident using them. It is NOT enough to have pepper spray with you, if it is buried at the bottom of your purse or if the first time attempting to use the device is at the brink of being attacked. Epic Fail.

Self defense and personal protection, by definition is personally defending and protecting yourself. When seconds count, the police are minutes away. And like that story last week from Toledo, Ohio, you can’t even count on people driving by in broad daylight.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Product Review: The Stunning Ring

Posted by Casey on Friday, 22 January, 2010

One of the cornerstone self defense products in Worth Protection Security’s line is called The Stunning Ring.

Honestly if you ask me, it is definitely more than just a big log of metal wrapped around your finger. A real Black Onyx Stone fixed in this silver or gold plated ring speaks volumes about its beauty and “disguise”.

Stunning Ring pepper spray

To a normal eye, the Stunning Pepper Spray Ring might just stand up for just an engagement or wedding symbol. However, Worth Protection Security made sure that this ring stays on and serve two purposes:

1 – That is, self defense and personal security from your run-of-the-mill street thugs and nasty hoodlums from those damp alleys.
2 – And to make it look real and pretty around your finger altogether, by coming out in fashionable style and prominent glossy coating.

This elegant ring is usable by both men and women due to its nifty and compatible unisex design and protects you while you work, on a date, jogging, or anywhere else against an attack, act of violence, rape, or other crisis. The Stunning Ring can be worn at all times and makes a perfect gift for that special someone you love.

Just like Worth Protection Security states, “An ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure”, so take a deep notice of those things going around in your surroundings. We know that women would just hear those stories about a girl ending up in trauma after having a rape assault against her, or just some thugs snatching a purse off an old lady a few blocks away. But no one actually pays a lot of attention to such details and they are all shrugged off from their brains in the next few days, no action taken.

If you are still thinking that “How could this ever happen to me?” or possibly “I am a man or woman who could never end up being cornered somewhere”, then you are actually waiting for the worst to happen. The Stunning Ring is your personal protector which can always come in handy, if need be. It is filled with OC Pepper Spray, which can leave your assailant quite immobilized for over 30 to 40 minutes. In addition, you can always refill the ring, once it runs out of that pepper spray.

Although we still hope that you don’t end up in a situation which requires the usage of The Stunning Ring but then again you can never drop your defenses in today’s time and age. Order it now and add one to your arsenal to get secured from a lifetime of unknown and threatening crimes.

Be Safe, Be Prepared,
