Man Defends His Property With Bear Repellent Pepper Spray

robbers stealing A/C, home surveillance cameraToday we have a story from Atlanta, GA.

A homeowner in DeKalb county got his house air conditioning units stolen right from his back yard. Not once but two times in a row. Mind you, those were not some window A/C units, no, we are talking two stationary units bolted to the cement foundation next to his house -- heavy stuff.

After the first crime, Roby Dail, the homeowner in the story, replaced two stolen units and put a steel case around them. In a few months the A/C units got stolen again. After the same crime was committed second time, Mr. Dail also installed an alarm, a video surveillance camera watching the cage with the A/C units inside and got himself some potent pepper spray.

And if you guessed that the thieves came for his air conditioners one more time -- you got it right, they did.
This is what happened next: Read on...

Mace Protects Motel Clerk From Robber

robber gets mace in the faceMace (pepper spray) helped warding off another robbery. This time it's Corpus Cristi, TX.

A guy walked in up to a motel receptionists and asked for money. The lady receptionists did not budge and told him "no". The guy threatened her with deadly force but instead of compliance from her he got his face full of mace.

After that point his robbery attempt did not go any further, heck no. It's impossible to do anything meaningful when you don't see much, hardly breathing at all and in agonizing pain. That's what pepper spray or Mace does to a person.

Self-Defense For Women in Santa Cruz With or Without Pepper Spray

self-defense for women of Santa Cruz
The City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation and CPVAW started affordable classes to teach women self-defense, how to ward off an attacker, how to use their physical abilities effectively and how to use pepper spray. The Coordinator of this program, Kathy Agnone said what we've been professing for years to all our customers: "if you buy pepper spray or mace or stun gun, you have to practice how to use it and have it available at all times. Otherwise, it will do you no good."

So here is how Kathy Agnone's said that:
“Our philosophy is to teach how to use your body parts and nearby objects to defend yourself. If you’re going to carry pepper spray, you should be trained in how to use pepper spray.
Obviously, if you’re clumsy with your pepper spray this could work against you at the time of an attack.

So yeah, maybe you’re one of those women who considers themselves armed because you bought some pepper spray. Reasonably, you carry it at the bottom of your purse when you go out, or stash it (less reasonably) in your glove box. Or maybe you’re one of those women who thinks she will never be the target of a violent crime.

The more I think about arming myself with pepper spray, the less I want to rely on it to save my ass. A little training on how to turn one's own body parts and nearby objects into weapons of self-defense seems like it would give more peace of mind (and bod) next time I'm walking home alone after dark".

Kimber Pepper Blaster Review Comment

Kimber Pepper Blaster Review
Recently we published a small review of both Pepper Blaster II and the original Kimber Guardian Angel. You can read it here. It started as a flaming email from a customer criticizing Kimber for redesign of the Pepper Blaster.
Since we've been selling both models from their first day in the US in 2006, we decided, based on that experience, to take a second look at that re-design's pluses and minuses. Check the link above for the full post text.

The feedback to this review was very appreciative. The OP was so kind to take his time and write his 'thank you' note. Here it is:

"You guys are amazing ... I mean that.

This information is fantastic. I wish Kimber would return to the original
format, because with cell-phones and even ancient pagers, no one gave them a
second look - even outside belts on shorts in summer.

Looks like I will get the red and tuck away ....

Thanks so much for the support and time to write back.

You don't find that very often.

Best,
Frederick

Pepper Spray Thwarts Robberies In More Ways Than One

pepper spray robbery attempt chicago
In the post yesterday about a robber who for no apparent reason pepper sprayed himself I was ROFLMAO-ing and screaming that "..you can not make this stuff up..".

Guess what: "this stuff" just keep on coming. I giggled it out of my system yesterday, so I can't laugh anymore. Instead, after reading this story from Chicago about yet another store robbery that was thwarted by pepper spray I started wondering: maybe robberies and pepper spray do not mix?

Another Brave Woman Fends Off Robber With Pepper Spray

It could be that the noticeable desperation of this act empowered a customer, a brave woman, to pull out her pepper spray and (Read on...)

Pepper Spray Saves San Diego Jogger

san diego woman fights off attacker with pepper spray
It seems like no neighborhood provides immunity to women against assaults. A sexual predator can pull up in a Volvo or in a beat up truck, can emerge from a dark alley or from the Central Park bench. What gives protection to women, times and times again, is simple pepper spray, mace, or stun gun and resolve to use it.

Pepper Blaster II and Pepper Blaster Spontaneous Review

pepper blaster ii by Kimber
Just few days ago we received this email from a Pepper Blaster owner:

"Is the original Kimber pepper blaster still available, or is only the new
stupid bright red "draw attention to me" model II available?

You could clip the original to a belt - and no one would look at you twice.
The ergonomics were perfect. I think all mine expire in June 2011, and the
red Kimber - not working for me.

I have a Kimber Custom II in .45 ca., and really loved the original.
I don't know how Kimber could have screwed this up...

Pamela Anderson, a Stalker, and Pepper Spray - who won?

Pamela Anderson, stalker, and pepper spray saga
News from England, a country where regular citizens (or "subjects" as the queen calls them), like you and I, are not allowed to carry pepper spray. Yes, pepper sprays in all shapes and forms are banned in England, one can not buy pepper spray in England. Arguably only Police can handle pepper spray cans.

Especially when they have to defend a celebrity and a former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson. She was in England performing at various venues. After her performance in the "Alladin" show, where she played Genie, she boarded a train in Liverpool. An unnamed suspect, allegedly her stalker, also boarded the same train. And then ...

Thanksgiving, TSA Abuse and Personal Safety

Ron Paul speech to end TSA abuse

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

My family will be with me these Holidays. We all live together and nobody will have to fly to sit down at the dinner table this Thursday.
But if a relative who lived afar has decided not to join us this year this would be quite okay with us.
If my daughter had to fly back home from an out of state school, I'd advise her to stay away from the airports, armed patrols, humiliating personal searches. I can not tell her that strangers in uniform will be touching her private parts and that's ok.
It is not ok.

Few years back they had to get a warrant issued by judge in order to do what's now can be done to anyone heading for the plane.

The following story came from the University of North Texas (UNT).
The students, the faculty, the police department, sororities and fraternities, local martial art experts all joined together to make assaults and rapes on the campus much less likely. Pepper spray and development of common sense skills to use it were in the center of the event hosted by the UNT.

Pepper Spray, Flashlight, And A SuperHero

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Somebody in Milwaukee is on a personal anti-crime crusade -- and he's got the costume to prove it, observers say.

Armed with a flashlight and pepper spray, the Watchman -- he won't give his real name -- patrols the streets of Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood dressed all in black except for a bright red face mask and a large yellow W on his shirt, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Stun Gun and TASER Devices In Illinois - Email From Customer

As we were just covering the stun gun and taser law in the state of Illinois in the previous post we got an email from our customer in that state.
Steve W. shared his opinion on stun devices and supported his point of view with some recent tragic episode that happened in Illinois.
Here is his email:
--------------------------
To Pepper Spray Center Customer Support

Thank you so much!! My daughter lives in an area with increasing crime
levels and I hope this will give her more of a sense of protection short of
obtaining a hand gun.

It is sad that the many state of Illinois its and local jurisdictions have
wimps running things.

Just recently in our area a young black male was accidently shot and
killed by a police officer while resisting arrest. And yes, the use of
tasers had been banned in the city
. Had this not been the case he would
have been easily subdued by using a taser and arrested without incident.

The family has turned down a 490K settlement.

Unfortunate incident that could have been avoided.

Thanks again,
Steve W.

For the rest of you, outside of Illinois, we can only say: buy taser because you can.

Mace with UV dye


I wish to purchase Mace with UV dye. I live in California.
I took a class over 15 years ago to enable me to purchase & carry mace.
I am pretty sure my mace is no longer good. Does it have an expiration? Is a license still necessary?
I don't know where my card is, or if it is still valid. In short... will you ship to California?
Do I need any type of authorization card?

Stun Gun and Taser Combination

stun gun and taser combination

From: Jaimie M.:

Hey there--I am thinking of buying one of your devices for personal protection...
I was impressed with the hand held stun gun that fits on your fist as you walk or jog.
Does it have to be uncovered to work?..
can you walk with it uncovered for protection without wasting the battery?

Also do you have any devices that are a taser and a stun gun combined?
I like the idea of being able to shoot someone as they come closer to stop them but am afraid I would miss!

What would be your suggestions?

We wrote before how stun guns work from the science point of view. We also discussed how to use psychological impact of a stun gun in your favor. In brief: some stunguns are large, loud and intimidating, some even take a form of other weapons, like the Blast Knuckles, but some are deceivingly tiny and pretend to be harmless objects by design.
