Pepper Spray- ideal for terminating most any situation!

 Are you tired of being scared all the time?  Personally, I took action and now carry both pepper spray and a stun gun at all times. Read on…

Another Brave Woman Fends Off Robber With Pepper Spray

It was uneventful Monday in the Hewitt, TX hair salon when a would-be robber stormed in to rob the place. There is something pathetic and even pitiful in the very idea to rob a hair salon of all places. It could be that the noticeable desperation of this act empowered a customer, a brave woman, to pull out her pepper spray and gave the attacker a good deal of face spraying. From this point on, the robbery did not progress that well.
The “robber” wore a black ski mask, so only his eyes were exposed. However, some of the spray must’ve got stuck in the mask’s fibers and breathing through it surely hurt like hell. Disoriented and in pain, he left the hair salon hastily and a Pontiac Bonneville picked him up and drove away.
The Police came a tad later to take the eyewitness accounts and report the event.

Pepper Spray FoxLabs, oc spray, 2 oz, Stream spray pattern $23.95

This unit is a 2 oz FoxLabs pepper spray unit with the stream spraying pattern. When deployed, it shoots pepper solution in a stream.  (Pepper Spray Center also has a “cone-fog” spray pattern that FoxLabs recommend for civilian use).

The stream has longer range but requires better aiming than the cone-fog one does.

  • 2% pepper spray (OC) Concentration
  • 5,300,000 Scoville Heat Units (Extremely hot)
  • 2 oz (56 gram) canister
  • 4″ H x 1 3/8″ Diameter
  • 18 ½ sec. bursts
  • 19 feet (5.8 meter) range.

I love hiking and going on walks so a “hidden” pepper spray is always in my possession. There are a lot of weirdos out there and I’d rather be armed with some pepper spray or a stun gun in case I happen to run into a nut job when I’m out & about. I just feel safer with a small pepper spray on the key chain and a stun gun in my pocket.

I feel really lucky that I’ve kept in touch with The Pepper Spray Center.  I like to shop (of course- I write a blog about shopping!) and it’s a good idea to keep yourself safe while shopping.  You never know who or what might be lurking in that dark corner of the mall parking structure.  I like knowing I can zap the “bad guys” with my stun gun– or spray them in the face with a quick blast of pepper spray.

Have you ever felt like someone was following you? Seen the same car a few too many times? Tird of feeling scared and powerless?

Typically I write about shopping for great deals on clothes or home items but today wanted to get some good information out to my readers on self-protection– while still  staying true to my “thrift shopping” theme. I’m planning to touch on this self-protection them periodically as I feel it’s an important topic.  I recently came across a statistic saying that 75% of stalking victims know their stalker!! (It’s not always “stranger danger” out there)

I found a well-stocked source of “tools” to help anyone feel a little bit safer.   The Pepper Spray Center is a great site to shop for stun guns, pepper spray and home protection items.

How would you feel if this happened to you??

March 3, 2011. Derry, New Hampshire Police reported that another store robbery was thwarted by simple pepper spray.
A man walked into convenient store in Derry, NH and demanded cash from the store owner. The store owner sprayed the would-be robber in the face with pepper spray instead.

What happened next illustrates how pepper spray affects people’s physiology, reflexes and behavior. The store owner was able to contact police and give a description of the robber and vehicle used.  So you see– a simple tool like pepper spray seriously disoriented this would-be robber.

Here you have it:
When hit with pepper spray a person is seriously disoriented:
– it’s hard to open the eyes, it’s hard to see what’s around, some report nearly complete blackout;
– it’s hard to breathe, pepper spray dilates membranes in nasal passages that may restrict air flow into the lungs;
– sharp acute pain does not allow to concentrate on anything, everything is burning and demands immediate relief as first priority.

Stay Safe While Hunting for Deals

Before you head out for that first big holiday shopping trip, here are a few tips to keep yourself, your loved ones and your purchases safe and secure:

  • Don’t leave a purse unattended in a shopping cart. The best practice– carry a smaller purse with a strap across the shoulder.
  • When in a public facility, always supervise your children, and always accompany young children to the restroom.
  • If older children become separated from you while holiday shopping have them meet you in a predetermined spot such as the sales counter of the store you were in or the mall’s information booth.
  • Teach younger children to look for people who can help within the store or mall, such as a uniformed security officer or a salesperson with a name tag. They should never leave the store/mall or go to the parking lot to look for you or your car.

Vehicle, parking lot safety

  • Always park in well-lit areas.  Most important- if you are in a large parking garage- remember where you parked the car! There’s nothing worse than searching for your vehicle in a gigantic, unfamiliar parking structure!
  • Keep your keys in your hand and pay attention to your surroundings while walking to your vehicle. Remember, potential perpetrators do not like eye contact.

  • Check the backseat and underneath the vehicle before entering.
  • Don’t clip any identification to rearview mirrors or other plain-view locations.
  • Lock your doors and close all windows.
  • Don’t hide keys anywhere on your vehicle.
  • Never leave your engine running, even if you will be gone for just a minute.
  • Conceal all valuables.
