Nov 15, 2007
Self Defense Products are essential in today's unsafe world. However the job of selecting which self defense weapon is proper for you can be a challenging task. Therefore we have given you the opportunity and resources to assist you in selecting what self defense products would best suit your needs. Here are a few of your choices.

Pepper Spray.

Pepper spray & Mace Sprays are our most affordable self defense products for effectiveness versus an assailant. Pepper Spray is an inflammatory agent made into a formula derived from hot peppers. When the liquid stream, foam, or gel gets into the person eyes, nose and respiratory system, their capillaries swell up, eyes are forced shut and breathing is made exceedingly troublesome. They cause the assailant or attackers to discontinue the assault virtually immediately and give you time to get away and call the police; in addition many pepper sprays have UV dyes that assist the police in identifying the attacker.

Stun Guns

Stun Guns are genuinely beneficial at deterring or intercepting attackers. Stun guns are electrical self defense products that emit a powerful electric charge that overrides the muscular system. It causes the muscle group expand and constrict at a very high rate which exhausts the blood sugar from the muscles making them unusable for an extended time period. The powerful electrical shock and the immediate depletion of the use of the muscle group can alter the judgment of the assailant, permitting you ample time to get away and call for assistance. As a rule of thumb, the higher the voltage the quicker the attacker will be deterred or halted and provide you time to get away.

Do not forget about stun batons which are longer and will allow you an extended reach so you are further away from the attacker. Stun Batons cannot be taken away from you easily either because they have electrical shock traveling from the tip of the baton down the sides around 6 inches from the end so if individual seeks to take hold of the baton and you squeeze the trigger, they will get jolted. Many people also use stun batons for protection against aggressive dogs. Remember it takes usually over 3 to 5 seconds of contact with a stun device to induce an attacker to loose control of their balance and fall to the ground, and should remain stunned for several minutes. Don't be scared to take hold of an attacker while discharging the stun gun into the assailant's body because the shock cannot pass back into your body. Use good judgment, defend yourself and get help as soon as possible.

Taser Products

If you require a stun gun but do not prefer to have to actual physical contact with an attacker, then the Taser ML18 or the Taser X26C Citizen Defense System may be for you. The Taser is a conducted energy weapon that employs compressed nitrogen to shoot two small probes up to 15 feet. These probes are connected to the weapon by high voltage insulated wire. When the probes make contact with the objective target the taser sends effective electrical pulses along the wires and into the body of the target through up to two inches of clothing.

The Taser ML18 and X26C series has a virtually 100% effectiveness rating. It combines the injury reducing benefits of conventional stun technology with a quantum leap in intercepting power via new Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) technology. In police studies, the Taser has a commanding and impressive incapacitation rate and has proven to be a non-lethal alternative in a number of confrontational situations. The Taser propels 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire and then sends 50,000 volts over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing astounding takedown power.

There are various methods of self defense you are entitled to use in defending yourself. Although there are state and city laws to abide by, and you need to check your local laws concerning self defense products. What you want is the confidence in knowing that if you are ever in a situation that requires you to defend yourself or your family that you have a dependable and proven self defense product. Once you have found the self defense product that you are comfortable with, you have taken the first step in defending yourself, your family and your rights as a U.S. citizen.
