Why Carry Pink Taser for Women

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Police research reveal that a Taser, which sends 50,000 volts traveling through propelled wires attached to each unit, has a greater incapacitation rate than a 9mm gun.  Shooting out 2 darts linked to those wires, it can stop a threat up to 15 feet away, permitting a safe space between myself and my attacker.  Knowing these facts provide targeted victims confidence to fight back when attacked.

Also, Tasers combine stun gun technology with the new Electro-Muscular Disruption technology and that the pink Taser for Women has an easy-aim design.  This non-lethal weapons could be utilized both for long-range and close-contact defense, providing women the tactical edge over assailants.

She was especially impressed with the Pink Taser for Women because of its effectiveness rate of nearly 100% as proven by more than 500,000 users globally, plus its Lifetime Replacement Guarantee.  Cartridges of the C2 series have unique serial numbers linked to an Anti-Felon Identification system, that will allow authorities to trace the proprietor and avoid potential misuse.

Now, my friend and I are both assured that her Pink Taser for Women would give her maximum protection whenever she gets into a precarious situation.  Able to impact the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system without causing long term harm, a pink taser for women would thwart any risk that comes her way instantly.

For instance, an Alton, IL man was charged with sexually abusing woman in Godfrey Schnuck’s parking lot this month. The woman was sexually assaulted while walking from the store to her car with groceries.

According to a police report, the victim said her attacker asked her for the time and she checked her cell phone.  After she gave him the time, the creep allegedly pulled his pants down and exposed himself to her. The woman walked to her car and was followed by the predator who continually inquired if she needed help carrying her groceries despite the woman telling him she did not need his help.

Once the woman reached her car and began loading groceries, the assailant is accused of dropping his pants and not only exposing himself to the victim but also rubbing himself against her.  The female victim also reported to the police,  this sexual predator then took her wallet from her hand which she immediately grabbed back from him.

When she grabbed her wallet back the assailant then fled the area on foot.  The victim reported the incident to the Madison County Sheriff’s Department that has since arrested 17-year old Latayuss J. Curry of 1400 State Street. He has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and attempted robbery.

Carrying a Pink Taser for Women will instantly stop any creep who dares to attack you or a loved one alone in a parking lot.

Non-Lethal Self Defense Weapons

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Today, carrying personal protection to guard against being victimized is something we all must do for self defense. With violent crime and news of attacks being rampant, there is nothing more important than knowing how to effectively protect yourself and your family against an attacker.  For this reason, non-lethal self defense weapons were designed. Non-lethal self defense weapons will effectively protect you from an attacker but you must be equipped with the knowledge of  how to use non-lethal self defense weapons correctly. When choosing  non-lethal self defense weapons, it’s important to select one that you’re comfortable in using when needed to defend yourself from an assailant.

stun guns are one of the most effective and efficient non-lethal self defense weapons available online. These  non- lethal self defense weapons use electricity to temporarily incapacitate an attacker on whom it is applied. When applied to an attacker’s body, it works to disrupt his brain’s communication system by sending various signals all at the same time.  It makes the muscles work rapidly resulting in a loss of energy and confusion rendering him momentarily immobilized. Since this device uses the high voltage low amperage technology, there’s no permanent damage to the assailant. Stun guns such as the Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt pen stun gun are an inexpensive but very effective as non-lethal self defense weapons.

There have been a few common concerns when it comes to stun gun safety. Many buyers are worried that the electrical current will pass on to them while using non-lethal self defense weapons such as a stun gun. Let me assure you, this can’t happen and I’ll explain the reasons now.

Again, stun guns work on high voltage but low amperage technology.  High voltage is not harmful.  The amps are. One amp can kill a person.  Most stun guns only have 3 milliamps.  This is the reason why stun guns do not cause permanent damage on a person’s body.  When the electricity is dumped into your attacker’s body, it dissipates within his muscles alone so you will not be electrified even if he grabs on to you.

The effect of these non-lethal self defense weapons stun is localized only to the area where you applied it and will not pass through the body.  Even if you stand on water, you will never be “electrocuted.”  This device is designed to be used as non-lethal personal protection keeping your safety in mind.  It has probes or prongs attached at the end which transmits electricity and converting it into fraction of volts.  When it is in contact with the skin, it is reduced to an even lesser voltage as it travels through your assailant’s nervous system.  Non-lethal self defense weapons like the Stun Master Hot Shot 4.5 Million Volt Stun Gun, are state-of-the-art non-lethal self defense weapons, designed to instantly stop and take down an attacker without causing harm to the user…You!

Non-lethal self defense weapons such as a Runt 4.5 Million Volt rechargeable stun gun are completely safe for you to use and once you know the right way, it will definitely work to your advantage.  These are effective non-lethal self defense weapons which will protect yourself or maybe a daughter at college from being victimized by a creep. Avoid becoming a victim by carrying  non-lethal self defense weapons like the Pretender 4.5 Million Volt  cell phone stun gun at all times.

For example, the Runt 4.5 million volt rechargeable stun gun can protect you by using high-voltage.  This will certainly stop any street thug who dares to attack you. stun guns work by attacking the assailant’s nervous system, the creep finds himself without energy, and loses body functions because the blood sugar becomes altered from the jolt of 4.5 million volts of electricity passing through his body.

It is the best self defense weapon for any man or woman to choose in situations where the confrontation is in close proximity.  As you can imagine, the Runt 4.5 million volt rechargeable stun gun has more than enough power to stop any attacker instantly in his tracks.

Wildfire Key Chain Pepper Spray Will Stop An Attacker

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Being aware of her surroundings prevented this woman from being victimized by an attacker…

My roommate was having a great time running in Forest Park located in St. Louis.  As she was running, two men seemed to get closer and closer to her.  As she continued running, the men got a little more aggressive and this started to annoy her.  She was holding a Wildfire Key Chain pepper spray and they did not know it.  One of them was no longer able to control himself and tried to grab her hand.  Instantly she aimed her Wildfire pepper spray and sprayed it into his eyes.  He cried in pain instantly, with his eyes shut, and his partner caught by surprise.  Other runners nearby apprehended the two and turned them over to the police.  She was saved by using her Wildfire Key Chain Pepper Spray for self defense.

When she recounted this story to me, I immediately became interested and desired more information about this Wildfire Key Chain Pepper Spray.  She always carries Wildfire Key Chain Pepper Spray when she runs in public places.  It has proven itself many times as an effective weapon that she uses to protect herself.  This self defense device is designed precisely for use by those who want to protect themselves from creeps.

This device is good for all women to carry, especially those who go walking and jogging regularly.  My roommate has proven Wildfire Pepper Spray to be very helpful many times, and it would do the same for anyone facing dangerous situations.  My roommate has proven Wildfire Pepper Spray to be extremely effective in the public parks of the most dangerous city in America.

St. Louis Criminals Most Dangerous in America: Non-Lethal Personal Protection for Women

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I’m sure by now you have read or heard the announcement by CQ Press that St.  Louis, MO is the most dangerous city in America. There is much disagreement about the statistical data used to return St. Louis to the #1 ranking in the nation.  There has also been much written and reported in the local media of the outrage and unfairness of announcing St. Louis as the Most Dangerous City in America.

The outrage should be about St. Louis criminals being the most dangerous in America and what’s causing St. Louis to consistently be one of the most dangerous cities in the nation.  After all, we were ranked #1 in 2006 and leaders took no apparent action to address the problem.  So why is everyone acting so surprised?

Also, there has been much discussion about how most of the violent crimes are being committed within easily identifiable zip codes.  Well, if you already know that, wouldn’t it make the problem much more easier to solve?

Here’s my personal predictions;  murders, rapes, robberies, shootings and aggravated assaults will continue to rise out of control as public officials argue about being ranked the #1 most dangerous city in America as opposed to #3, #6, or #10.  Who cares about the ranking, address the problem!  Otherwise, St. Louis criminals, the most dangerous in America, will venture out to the suburbs and affluent parts of the community and we’ll really have a problem when this happens. And as quietly as it’s kept, some say it already has begun.

Criminals aren’t stupid, they’ll eventually search for softer targets near colleges, universities and more affluent parts of the community.  Don’t wait until after you have been victimized by a thug to think about your personal safety.  Wildfire pepper spray and Stun Master‘s 4.5 Million Volt Hot Shot stun gun provide extremely effective non-lethal personal protection for women.
