Many times, people will buy a self defense weapon without giving much thought to the actual situation they’re wanting protection from. What I mean is they just go buy a weapon. But, they don’t ask the basic questions like: Is this for me or my daughter? If for my daughter, how will she carry it? Will it be in her purse? Her car? Her belt loop? And, if its for her, what situation am I wanting her to have protection from? Is she protecting against a dorm room break in or rape? Is she needing protection while walking from her car to work at night? Is she needing protection while exercising at the park?
All these variables need to be taken into account before purchasing a self defense weapon. For instance, pepper spray is a highly effective self defense weapon for a home invasion and, in many cases, while walking from car to store. However, while exercising, wind can be a factor. And, a small spray of pepper spray, if fairly windy, will probably just blow away, possibly even back onto her.
So, again, these things need to be given thought before you spend your hard earned money on a weapon.

Some people say that stun guns don’t work. Others say Taser Guns aren’t effective either. But, I’ve never heard anyone say they don’t believe Pepper Spray works.
The fact is, pepper spray DOES work. And, while, yes, there may be the one in one hundred thousand person who can keep moving forward aggressively when sprayed with defense spray, that occurrence is very rare. Not only is it rare, even that one person would tell you the stuff was nasty and they were miserable even though they were able to continue moving through it. So, to me, that’s like saying its about as effective as carrying a .38 caliber handgun. Yes, some people, even when shot can keep moving through the pain, but it definitely slows them down and its rare that anyone can keep moving aggressively towards their victim.
So, regardless of what brand of pepper spray you buy, I mean, even regardless of their so-called SHU ratings, they’re all bloody hot and very nasty to feel. Carry whatever type of dispenser your feel comfortable with and know that you’ve got one of the best self defense weapons available to you today. Also, don’t overlook buying a pepper gun as a great solution as they also pack in the pepper formula, but they deliver the payload much quicker to the target…..and, usually at greater distances.

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.
Regardless of whether you choose Mace Pepper Spray or another brand, virtually everyone should carry a self defense spray. I mean, look at almost all Police Officers. Not only do they carry a handgun, they carry a baton, and many carry a TASER gun, along with a sizeable can of pepper spray. There must be a reason, why they trust this best selling self defense product.
The bottom line is that you never know when you might be attacked. And, having a can or canister of Mace Pepper Spray on a keyring or in some other dispenser is just one more means of protecting yourself, as well as your loved ones. If someone jumps you quickly, you might not be able to draw a stun gun and get it activated. But, you might just have your keys in your hand. And, if you have a keyring Mace dispenser, that may just be what saves your life. Again, pepper spray should be just one more means of protecting yourself and your loved ones.
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.
Its a sad state of affairs these days. No matter where you go or what you’re do, you’re subject to the increasing possibility of crime. Home invasions, personal attacks and muggings, rapes and purse snatchings, burglaries….all sectors of crime are seeing huge increases due to the cruddy state of the American Economy.
Sales of Home Surveillance Systems and Self Defense Products are soaring. Even though, financially, times are tough, people are spending for camera systems to protect their homes and business. And, people are spending for stun guns and taser guns to protect them while they’re out and about. And, from what economists are reporting, things are going to get worse over the next couple of years. I’m now hearing that it will be a minimum of 2013 before our economy bottoms if not even a little longer. And, they’re saying that the recovery we do eventually get will be a very slow one, taking decades, if ever, getting us back to where we were a few years ago. We have a very bleak outlook ahead and people are climbing over each other to invest in whatever means of protection they can.
Quick….take a guess….how many different products would you think are made by MACE Pepper Spray. 10? 15? 20? 5? Try 24 different Mace brand Pepper Spray products. I’m not even adding in their other products like personal alarms and such. MACE has really done a great job of “owning” the self defense spray market.
Not only do they have numerous different pepper spray formulae for different states and different applications, they also have different dispensers. One of my favorite MACE Pepper Spray products is the MACE Gun. This thing is quite impressive. Try walking through the park at night with one of these in your hand and see if anyone wants to mess with you. I’m also a fan of the MACE Screecher personal alarm, too. Oh, and the MACE Baton is a pretty cool item, too. So, from pepper spray to other various products like personal alarms, MACE is really the leading company defining what products will be available to us. Other companies, while still good, seem to follow MACE’s lead.
