There are so many self defense weapons available today, its easy to get overwhelmed. And, oftentimes, what happens is that people end up not choosing anything, because they can’t decide what to get. If this describes you, my advice is to at least go ahead and purchase pepper spray now. This way, you’ll at least have something now, while you take your time to figure out which weapon you will ultimately want to get.
Now, when you start looking into your pepper spray purchase, you’ll see there are several formulas available now days. Here again, don’t get bogged down in the details. Buying something is better than not having anything on hand if you need it. You’ll find the traditional self defense spray. But, you’ll also find a fogger and a sticky gel. I like the sticky gel as its been reported that the natural tendency of the target is to try to wipe this stuff off. But, all they end up doing is smearing the burn all over their skin. It hurts! After choosing which formula to get, pick out your dispenser and order away.
There are a lot of people who want to carry some form of self defense weapon, but they’re afraid they won’t have the nerve to use it if they’re attacked. And, this is a valid concern. When people ask me what they should do in this case, I always suggest for them to at least buy pepper spray.
I tell them to buy pepper spray, as a starter, for a couple of reasons. First, its relatively inexpensive. So, if they buy it, but never use it, its not a lost investment. Second, this weapon is something that they can buy and do a couple of test sprays with, just to get the feel for it ahead of time. This way, if they ARE confronted by an attacker, they’ll feel much more comfortable in using it when they need to. Finally, pepper spray is a great entry level product. Once someone buys it and gets comfortable with it, its usually a lot easier to graduate to a grander form of self defense weapon, like a stun gun or taser or something.
Yesterday, we spoke briefly about how sales of TASER Guns were skyrocketing, but we didn’t really mention much about how pepper spray purchases have skyrocketed, too. Well, they have!
Pepper Spray purchases have also skyrocketed in the past couple of years, just as the sales of taser guns and stun guns have. And, I believe much of the same reasoning is behind this substantial increase. More and more people have become comfortable and familiar with pepper spray and MACE brand products. And, more and more people are coming face to face with crimes, so they feel the need to protect themselves. But, I also think that the increase is due to the increased number of products. There are so many different types of pepper sprays and Defense Sprays and so many different dispensers that people are able to find one that they feel comfortable in using. Regardless, its great that people are protecting themselves. Of course, its a drag that they’re having to do this!
If you’re looking for an easy to carry non lethal weapon for self defense or for the self defense of your daughter or family member, check out Pepper Spray. What’s available these days is not “your father’s pepper spray” anymore. When you go to purchase pepper spray, you’ll find several different formulas. Of course, there is the old defense spray. Then, there’s a fogger and now, there’s also a gel. The gel is mean! Once this stuff gets on someone, their natural tendency is to smear or wipe it off….but, that only makes it worse as this stuff just smears the burn.
And, your pepper spray purchase doesn’t have to be the old keychain canister, either. Of course, if you want it to be, you’ll find many colors and different sizes. But, you’ll also find pepper spray available in large cans up to 1 pound in size. But, you’ll also find batons with pepper spray and even a handgun looking dispenser from MACE. There’s even a sprayer that looks like a writing pen for the discrete weapon to have on hand.
Here’s a recent story I came across and thought you just might be interested in it. I found it quite interesting. You never can tell when you may need some form of self defense weapon, even when you think the police are around.
Nina had just accepted a big promotion, which meant a bigger
paycheck, but a longer commute. Luckily, she lived in the city
and commuted out to the suburbs, so she didn’t get stuck in the
crazy traffic that some of her friends had to endure every day.
One morning, she woke up extra early to get ready for an
important staff meeting. Scooting down a side road at over
seventy miles per hour, she noticed flashing lights in her rear
“Ugh,” she grunted. “One week into this job and I’m already
getting a ticket.”
Still too early for many of the gas stations to be open, she
pulled into a lighted space on the side of the road. Under the
lights, she noticed the police car was unmarked. A trooper got
out of the vehicle and paced toward her.
She rolled down the window a little bit as he approached.
“Good morning, ma’am,” he said. “Do you know how fast you were
going through that thirty five mile an hour zone?”
Kim rolled her eyes and said, “I’m sorry, officer, but I don’t
know. How fast do you believe I was going?”
“Let’s not worry about what I think, just yet,” he said. “I’ll
need you to step out of the car, please, ma’am.”
Kim thought it was strange that he hadn’t asked for her license
or registration. And when she took a longer look at him, now that
her eyes were adjusting to the light, she noticed he wasn’t
wearing a uniform.
“Officer, could I just see your identification clearly, please?”
“Ma’am, I order you to get out of this car RIGHT NOW,” he
Kim observed that he looked far too unkempt to be a real police
officer. At the same moment, the man tried to reach in through
Kim’s car window. She reached up for her visor and pulled down
her emergency canister of pepper spray which she had gotten with her Pepper Shot Tri-Pack.
Aiming right through the crack in the window, she nailed her
attacker right in the eyes. As he stumbled into the road, she
started up her car and sped up the highway. She found an open gas
station a few miles up the road, where she called police.
They found her attacker stumbling through the woods not far from
where Kim left him. It turns out he had been preying on women in
the early morning hours for months, but hadn’t been caught. Kim
not only saved herself, she helped put a dangerous man behind
Like I said earlier, you never know when you may need a self defense weapon. Don’t take any chances out there. Crime is increasing everywhere.
Pepper Spray has been around for a number of years and many people have purchased it. However, what a lot of folks don’t know is that these non lethal weapons have an expiration date. Generally, the product has a shelf life of 3-5 years depending on the brand and how its been stored.
So, if your pepper spray purchase is over 3 or 4 years old, you should begin looking around for which new product you want to replace it with. The selection of Mace and Pepper Spray products is so great now, it may take you a little bit of shopping time to decide on which product to get. The MACE Gun is a relatively new product that is quite unique. Check it out and I think you’ll think the same thing I think about it: its quite intimidating to someone who has it pointed at them. But, there are also mace batons and even other types of pepper spray now. For instance, the Pepper Spray Gel is a very sticky substance that only gets worse when the target starts trying to wipe it off and only smears it around.
One Self Defense Weapon that none of us can afford to be without these days is Pepper Spray. Its so affordable and easy to carry, plus with how inexpensive it is to buy, you’d be crazy not to have some. My wife even takes hers when she walks the dogs to fend off any attacking loose dogs that may approach.
For your Pepper Spray Purchase, be sure to do a little research before buying. Not only will you find many different types of sprayers, you’ll also find many different formulas. For instance, in addition to the typical stream that most of us are familiar with, you’ll find foggers and even a sticky gel, now. All these choices combined with the various types of pepper spray dispensers, may surprise you when you first see them. So, don’t go to purchase just expecting to buy something in a quick 2 or 3 minutes. Give some thought to the situation you anticipate finding the need to protect yourself. Make sure you’ll have quick and easy access to your pepper spray when you need it.
Once you begin looking, you’ll find many places to purchase pepper spray. You can usually find small displays at retail stores like gun stores, pawn shops and other similar stores. However, if you really want to see the vast selection of pepper sprays and self defense sprays, you should go online. There are now so many brands and choices that you might just be surprised.
For your pepper spray purchase, generally just search “buy pepper spray” or something similar. The websites that come up should have a multitude of brands like MACE and Wildfire and there should be several styles of dispensers. There’s the traditional dispenser that goes on a key chain. There are cans of various sizes and triggers. There are even batons and units shaped like handguns. One very popular model is a pepper spray pen. And, you’ll also find various formulas. Some are legal in certain states while others are available in almost all states. You’ll find sprays, foggers and gels. Take your time and give thought to how you’ll want to carry and hold your pepper spray before you purchase, so you’re sure to get a unit that will be effective for you.
The other day while I was at the mall, I saw security guards spraying a guy with pepper spray. While it was a bit nerve-racking, afterwards it kinda made me smile. I mean, I could tell the guy was harassing someone so he obviously deserved to get sprayed with the pepper spray. And, to see him squirm like he did when that stuff hit him created an image that I’ll not soon forget.
If you don’t carry MACE or some form of self defense weapon, you may want to go ahead and make your pepper spray purchase soon. Seriously, don’t wait. I hear all too often of people who were “going to place an order” or worse, they own a weapon but “just didn’t have it on me that day” when they really needed it. You may not be going to actually be mugged or raped, you may just have a nasty encounter where someone just wants to fight or harass you. And, having pepper spray is easy to keep with you, but as I saw first hand, highly effective.
