The holidays are rapidly approaching and with it the eternal dilemma of what to get your friends, family and loved ones. You could cop out and get them a gift card or a tie. But why not get them something they can actually use. Here are some gift ideas that are not only practical but could also be lifesaving for those who mean a lot to you, especially the women in your life. What are we talking about?
How about some self-defense products holiday gift ideas?
The list of products in our store range from a $6.75 pepper spray up to a $997 Taser gun and every price range in between. Our store has over 4,800 products to choose from.
We have broken these suggestions down into three price ranges to fit just about any budget.
For Prices ranging up to $50.
We have, as of this writing, 192 pepper sprays starting at $6.75. Pepper sprays are the most popular self-defense product in the world, and we are proud to say that we have the largest selection of them of any website in the United States. If you can’t find it here, it probably doesn’t exist.
Then we have a vast assortment of so-called keychain weapons starting at $5.99. They come in a variety of styles but all feature sharp edges and finger holes to deliver a devastatingly harmful punch to your assailant. They are called keychain weapons for a reason they all have keychain attachments. They are lightweight, inexpensive and legal everywhere.
The next most common self-defense weapons are stun guns. Right now we have 140 stun guns to choose from starting with the jolt stun gun which is 86,000,000 volts at $16.99.
Then you might want to consider a combo pack of a stun device and inexpensive pepper spray that can easily be put together for under $50.
In the next price range up to $100, first on our list is this very popular ZAP Stun Baton. It has 1 million volts of stopping power in 11.5 inches long body with 4 stun points for contact on the tip, both sides, and the handle. It also has shock plates on the baton shaft and action grip handle to prevent attackers from taking it away from you. If you are going to carry a self-defense product with you in your car, this should be it. It has a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, which is typical of ZAP products.
We would also recommend in this price range a combination of a keychain pepper spray and a flashlight stun gun, which can easily be done in the under $100 category.
Then we offer the ‘DIY Custom Woman’s Self-Defense Kit’ that features three items. A combo of a self-defense training DVD by Kimber Johnson who is a lifetime martial artist and is considered to be an expert in her field. She has put together a sixty minute DVD that is especially geared to self-defense techniques for women that sells for $29.95; a hot pink purse sized pepper spray by Mace brand that sells for $15.95 and a Streetwise SMACK stun devise that is 16,000,000 volts yet is small enough to have a keychain attachment and sells for $16.99. You can get all three for under $70.00.
Over $100 Range
Our tasers range in price from $399 up to $997 with the Taser Pulse+ being the smallest, because it was specially designed for women and the least expensive. But it still does essentially the same thing as all other tasers just with not quite as many bells and whistles.
In our article entitled ‘How Do Tasers Work?’ we said ” A taser controlled electronic weapon (CEW) uses electricity in a different approach to incapacitating violent people. It uses low voltage and relatively high amperage to “mimic the electrical signals used within the human body to communicate between the brain and the muscles” according to the Taser website.
It interferes with communication between the nerves and the brain that control neuromuscular reactions. They do this by overwhelming the nerve traffic causing involuntary muscle contractions and impairment of motor skills. It literally jams the nervous system.
Tasers work by shooting out two probes that have barbs on the end. Civilian models shoot up to 15 feet away with such force that it can work through a bulletproof vest. Some models have a laser site that helps in aiming and an integrated LED light that illuminates darkened areas to improve your line of vision. There is a safety switch to prevent accidental discharge.
The 30 second timed electrical pulse keeps the attacker down giving you time to escape. In independent tests, tasers have been shown to have more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun and are nearly 100% effective. Police models of the taser have more features and a greater range but essentially operate the same way as civilian models. And there is a certain amount of pain associated with this nonlethal self-defense weapon.”
Tasers are the only nonlethal self-defense weapon that requires a background check administered by Taser international. They are, without a doubt, the most expensive self-defense weapon there is. But they are also, without a doubt, the most effective.
For more information on what tasers can do, check our cool article called ‘A Taser Is A Stun Gun But A Stun Gun Is Not Necessarily A Taser.’
There are so many choices for self-defense gift ideas that are impossible to narrow it down other than+ what we have done here. But the mere fact that you are giving a self-defense gift to one of your loved ones speaks volumes about your level of caring and love for them.
