Self Defense Products Designed for Women

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Lets face it.  This can be a pretty unsafe world for women out there.  Sometimes its just hard to be a woman because you can be subjected to so many types of violent crimes.  Well, the good news is that you don’t have to put up with that kind of thing anymore.  If you look up self defense weapons women you will find that there is a plethora of weapons that women can use for self defense these days.  You don’t have to rely on sheer brute force to get an attacker to leave you alone.  Now you can choose from an array of self defense products that will help to keep you safe and will keep any potential attackers at bay.

The best part about these self defense weapons is you don not have to have years of training to use it.  Almost any woman who wants to be sage can take advantage of these products.  Some of the self defense weapons women can use to protect themselves are really nice because you can conceal them in your purse or even the palm of your hand.   Take pepper spray for instance.  If you feel like you are being followed or if someone is giving you a hard time then you can keep a small container of pepper spray on a key chain and that can disable a grown man right on the spot.  You have to be sure that this type of self defense weapon is legal for you to use in your area and it can be a great alternative for women who are opposed to carrying something more serious like a gun.  I recommend that most of my female friends carry this type of self defense weapon around with them because it requires little to no training to use it safely.

One of the other really popular self defense weapons women can use to keep themselves safe are stun guns.  These are a little more serious than a pepper spray because they could cause harm to yourself if you do not have the right training.  But, if you are really worried about being able to hit an attacker with a spray in the eyes then a stun gun is what you need to feel safe.

You can target an attacker anywhere on their body with a stun gun and it is a great self defense weapon for a woman because it will take them down.  You won’t have to aim for any particular area and if you follow the directions then they will be completely disabled and this will allow you to get away from the scene unharmed.  Make sure you choose your self defense weapon wisely and always get the right training on how to use it.

Will My Child Be Safe at College?

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

If your son or daughter is going away to college this fall, then you probably are already planning on what you need to send with them.  You have the college dorm checklist bring important things that are going to fit into the college sized dorm room.  Here are some of the basics to keep in mind when it comes time to move your teen off to college.  The first things you need to consider for your college kid is the size of their dorm room and what things their school does allow and doesn’t allow in their rooms.

Some schools will allow hot plates, microwaves, and toaster ovens, while others won’t allow these items in the rooms. The first place to begin is by starting with things that your son or daughter already has.  Often times, they will have favorite bedding, carpets, decorations, and other little things that they really enjoy at home.  Starting out with familiar sheets will give your college kid a sense of home comfort that new sheets will not.  Save the new sheets for when your college kid gets adjusted.  Once you have established what you have for your college kid’s room, it is time to start looking at things that you need to purchase.

A microwave, mini-fridge, and a laptop are all great things to make sure your college kids has.  Inside of their room you should add bedding, carpets, drapes, and posters that they really enjoy.  One often forgot item that is really important as well is to make sure that your college kid has a selection of towels and other bathroom items at their disposal.  A laundry bag or hamper is a wonderful thing to add to the college dorm checklist bring items.  It will make your teen’s life easier when they have a place for dirty laundry.  On your kid’s college desk, there should be a bright light or full spectrum light that they can work by, there should be an assortment of unique writing utensils, papers, and a printer for last minute printing needs on their way to school.

When it comes to personal items, your teen should have a toiletry bag that can carry all their items.  They should also have their own stock of toilet paper and tissues as well.  For their personal items, they should have shower shoes, shampoo, soap or body wash, brushes for hair, body, and teeth, tooth paste and their other bathroom essentials that all fit easily into a toiletry bag they can carry with them back and forth between the bathroom and their room.  The key with planning for your kid’s college dorm room is keeping everything portable and organized.  It is better that they come equipped with simple items that are easy to carry and easy to replace until they have adjusted to dorm life.  The college dorm checklist bring list should be simple and complete.

Personal Protection For Women

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

College is a scary time for the students and the parents alike.  For students, it’s their first time all alone in the world, without mommy and daddy to rely on and to help them should the need arise.  For parents, their baby is flying away from the nest, and without parental supervision for the first time in their life.  For girls a Self-Defense Kit For Women is a must have.

Therefore, parents try to prepare their child for every possible situation and stock their dorm room full of things to help them should the situation arise and they don’t have the comforts of home to help them.  Mini fridges are stocked full of milk, sodas, energy drinks for the occasional all night study session, and of course, with wholesome foods like fruits, homemade cookies and brownies, baked with love, and other staples to get kids through the first semester away from home.  Care packages filled with home bake sweets will add to the freshman fifteen, a curse that plagues all students away from home.

Once the fridge is well stocked with food, parents turn to outfitting the desk for optimal studying, seeing as they won’t be around to help encourage doing homework and good studying, and discourage procrastinating.  Bright new desk lamps shine onto fancy new laptops with built in web cams to enable Skype conversations with mom and dad at home. Brand new mechanical pencils fill a mug with sentimental memories from home and fancy guides to help survive the first semester at college line the bookshelves.  Crisp new textbooks are stacked on the desk, all ready for the new classes, and notebooks full of clean notebook paper sit on the other corner.  The desk is perfectly prepared for the first year at college, and making the most of studies.  The wall are adorned with pictures and a multitude of posters to try and make the sterile dorm room more house-like, and similar to their room back home.  A framed picture of the family is always slipped onto the dresser or bookshelf, to remind the student of their family back home.  The bedding is always an important part of the room: a new, mature comforter to replace the one left behind at home.  A rug lies on the floor, to make the cold tile warmer in the early morning.

Once the room is as comfortable as possible, parents make sure their child has a sick kit and a Self-Defense Kit For Women to keep them safe for every situation that arises.  Band-aids and antiseptic abound, plus cough drops and Advil or Tylenol.  Parents lose the chance to take care of their sick child when they are at school, so they make sure they have everything to combat everything from cuts to common cold to the flu or a fever.  There are lots of tissues and a card with emergency numbers listed for every possible health center:  the college infirmary, the hospital, minor emergency clinic, dentist, and eye doctor.  The card will invariably get lost in the mess and clutter of a typical college dorm, but its presence is reassuring to the parents in thinking their child will be able to get the proper help if needed.

In addition to the basic first aid kit, parents include a simple mechanic kit, with a hammer, screwdriver, and pocket knife, because one can never know when those will be useful.  Parents of female students will include a whistle with the hope that their daughter will wear it faithfully around her neck to signal for danger, as well as carrying along pepper spray (part of any Self -Defense Kit For Women) in her purse, and never walking alone after dark.  A Self-Defense Kit For Women is something that can be bought very inexpensively.

Students who have a car at college will find their car stocked with bottled water, a blanket, a spare tire, an extra insurance card, a flashlight, and anything a parent could think of that would be helpful in case the car should break down.  As for clothes, students will take a mix of new and old clothes: some students will need new clothes for a change in climate, heavy coats for the California kids going east, and tank tops and sandals for the Boston kids moving to the south.  Kids will want to keep clothes from home for sentimental reasons, shirts from sports teams and the plethora of SENIOR shirts to remember the last year in high school.

Parents can not protect their children when they are away at school, so they try and make sure they have everything they’ll need to take care of themselves as they venture out into the real world all by themselves for the first time, by giving them the perfect Self-Defense Kit For Woman.

Non-Lethal High Voltage Self Defense Stun Guns

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

The story below demonstrates the importance of planning ahead and how one group choose the their non-lethal self defense weapon

We had our backs to the wall in the staff of a quite prominent legal counsel due to her choice of battles to fight.  Anyway, tranquility was the last thing on my mind in the office of a woman’s rights advocate.

We agreed amongst ourselves to sift through the internet for how to ensure self defense for women.  The consensus was that high voltage stun guns would require less shots to incapacitate an aggressor, thus compromising our safety for a shorter time.

With 2.7 million volts, the rechargeable Stun Master multi-function stun gun stood out right away as super handy.  It boasts an extra radiant led flashlight, 110 dB personal alarm and blinking red lights.

Runt Stun Guns with 2.5, 3.5 and 4.5 million volts utilize the latest micro-technology and can accommodate a woman’s hand.  These power-packed high voltage stun guns are no taller than just 3.5 inches.

It was hard to believe the Pretender cell phone stun gun packed 4.5 million volts of an electric whopper in its true-to-life camera phone housing.  A built-in 12 LED flashlight makes it one of the most unbeatable high voltage stun guns.

A cumulative 1.2 million volts emanated from the stun tips spaced 5 inches apart in the Double Trouble stun gun, instead of the usual 1.5 inches.  It is great for disabling bigger bullies using twice as much stun power.

To obtain all high voltage stun guns were convinced were the most effective and have each one in the team use it became the verdict.  We could then regroup and share experiences in securing strong defense for women.

High voltage self defense stun guns and many other non-lethal self defense products are essential to prevent women and defenseless college students from being victimized by violent criminals. A SLU student was seriously injured when two urban thugs launched a violent surprise attack against him near the urban university in St. Louis, Mo.

Don’t Expect Anyone to Come to Your Rescue if Attacked

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Woman raped in deserted airport concourse while two janitors walked by and did nothing. Another sad example of why you can’t expect anyone to come to your rescue if attacked.

A woman who missed a connecting flight at Denver International Airport said she was raped in a deserted concourse by a man she met at an airport bistro while 2 janitors passed by and did nothing.

Officers arrested Noel Alexander Bertrand, 26, of Portland, Oregon., early Tuesday after two airline employees on the tarmac saw the attack through a window and called for help.  Denver television stations KMGH and KDVR reported.

The 22 -year-old woman said she was flying from Oregon to Illinois on Monday to interview at a convent and decided to spend the night at the airport when she struck up a conversation with the man.

The woman said Bertrand followed her after the bistro closed at midnight.  He asked to kiss her, and she refused, but he moved in anyway and then threw her to the floor.  The woman said the man pulled her pants down and assaulted her for about 10 minutes.  During the attack, two airport janitors passed by and said nothing, she said.

It’s dis-hearting  that two airport janitors could just walk by while a woman inside the airport is being sexually assaulted. These are dangerous times, the only person you can expect to rescue you if being attacked and sexually assaulted is YOU!

Defensive Pepper Spray Safeguards Women from Being Victimized by Creeps

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011


Female jogger was sexually assaulted by sexual predator on MetroLink bike trail.  Thug’s attempt to rape the woman was thwarted by the victim yelling for help as she successfully fought off attacker.  Other bicyclist nearby heard her cries for help and scared off the attacker.

This creep is still on the loose looking for another female to victimize.  All women should carry and be prepared to use Defensive pepper spray or pepper gel as self defense against an attacker.

Also, when exercising outdoors try to do so with at least one other person and never cover both ears with headphone or ear buds if listening to an Ipod, mp3 players, walkman etc. Leave one ear open to allow you to hear someone sneaking behind you as you jog or run.  Defensive pepper spray such as Mace are inexpensive yet effectively safeguards women from being victimized by an assailant.

Where Can I Buy The Best Stun Gun

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

The best stun gun has prevented many customers like the one below from being victimized…

Going home one late night from my job as a bartender, I was harassed by two street thugs who wanted my money and cell phone I just purchased the previous week. I saw an opportunity to escape an ran fast as I could to the safety of my car that was parked around the corner. As I drove home and calmed down from this bad experience, I thought about how defenseless I felt and needed to acquire non-lethal personal protection.

My brother, who was a police officer, told me that I should be protected from bad people especially that I am working nights.  He was willing to lend me the best stun gun that he owned.  Every time I left the restaurant since that night, I feel secure and protected with the Stun Master Hot Shot stun gun in my pocket.

The Stun Master Hot Shot stun gun which looks like a Blackberry is packed with 4.5 million volts from a short blast from this handy device would render anyone incapable of any activity for about five to ten minutes.  With 4.5  million volts of non-lethal personal protection, it is the best stun gun to conceal.

I purchased my own stun gun since my brother would also need its protection on his days off.  I knew that the best stun gun would effectively protect me along with the Wildfire pepper gel that I now also carry.

How To Use Pepper Spray and Defensive Spray

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Defensive sprays such as pepper spray, Mace pepper gel, Wildfire pepper spray, Wildfire pepper gel and Pepper Shot, are extremely effective against an attacker when used correctly.

If you are attacked, draw your Wildfire pepper spray and fire a stream into their face.  This can be done while remaining a few feet outside of their reach; a major benefit in escaping an attack.

The best way to use the pepper spray is to keep the pepper spray closer to your body. You usually see people use pepper spray with the arm fully extended.  This may give the attacker a chance to grab the pepper spray or deflect you aim. Keep it closer to your body and fire into the eyes of your attacker.  You can adjust your aim as you are firing.

After firing your pepper spray or gel  into the attacker’s face, back up, if the attacker follows, spray him again.  Even if they are under the influence of drugs, the pepper spray will temporarily blind them and make breathing difficult.

Remember, the aim is to escape, not to fight or to stick around and punish the attacker, he may have accomplices or he may have a hidden weapon.  So, spray the Wildfire pepper spray,Mace pepper gel or Pepper Shot and then run away.

Protect Yourself from Being Victimized and Carry The Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable Pen Stun Gun With Flashlight

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

How convenient it is to procrastinate about knowing how to defend yourself. Don’t assume that street crimes happen at night and that criminals all have an evil look about them.  In movies, maybe, but on a populated street at daytime, my neighbor was mugged.

He had sneaked out of work to run some errands and was walking across a sidewalk.  A man on a bicycle stopped in front of him. He was some nondescript hooded character but one who flashed a fearsome knife.  He literally froze.  It all went on so fast. The thug muttered, “Stay quiet,” and snatched his bag with his laptop . He slit my neighbors arm and then rode away.  It sounds so far-fetched from everyday life that you do not take interest in how to defend yourself.  Well, big mistake.

Studying how to defend yourself is a bitter pill to swallow after such an experience, but you will be the better for it. While he was stripped of his computer, He discovered the Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable pen stun gun with Flashlight.

One of the handiest high voltage stun guns on the market, the Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable Pen stun gun with flashlight is just 6 inches in height, 1 inch all around and 2.5 oz. lightweight.

Firing a forceful 1.2 million volts of electric shock into the body of an opponent, this self defense stun pen causes the momentary incapacitation of an attacker. He is now better prepared to protect himself and is always aware of his surroundings.

The Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable Pen Stun Gun with Flashlight is outfitted with a super bright led flashlight for added night time visibility and a safety cap to keep from being fired by accident. My neighbor also carries Wildfire pepper gel as a back-up and likes the greater distance it provides between him an any potential attacker.
