Self-Defense Products-What They Didn’t Tell You
The self-defense products industry is very competitive. There are manufacturers for stun devices and pepper sprays-dozens of them. Then there are wholesalers who sell their products to distributors-thousands of them. Then the distributors through their websites attempt to sell these self-defense products to customers who visit their website for female self-defense and personal safety. They do this through ingenious marketing starting with the manufacturers hyping the potency of their pepper sprays and coming up with clever ways to sell the product to distributors for further sale to retail customers.
The only problem with what is done on most websites is that you will never see information about how ineffective they may be under certain circumstances. In this article we will share with you the truth about self-defense products and share with you information that manufacturers and distributors don’t tell you.
As a good example just look at your favorite website for self-defense products. More than likely you will never see information that tells you stun guns are ineffective, generally speaking, when used on assailants that are drunk or high on drugs. You may also never see information about pepper sprays being ineffective in windy or rainy conditions. Since most places that you use pepper sprays are outdoors, don’t you think it’s important to know that?
Almost all manufacturers of pepper sprays tout the percentage of oleoresin capsicum in their sprays, leading you to believe that that percentage is the most effective way to judge the potency of their product. The higher the percentage of OC the more potent it is, right? Actually that is not right. You almost have to have inside information to get past that hype.
Even though oleoresin capsicum is the main ingredient in all pepper sprays, it is not the correct way to judge the potency of the spray. It is the percentage of major capsaicinoids that is the most important way to judge the potency of a defensive spray. Unfortunately, on most websites that information often is not even available.
Another example is the voltage in stun guns. Manufacturers and distributors often lead you to believe that the voltage in stun guns is the overwhelming factor in determining how strong the stun device is. What they don’t tell you is that a 20,000,000 volt stun gun will not disable you any faster than a 10,000,000 volt stun gun. Stun devices operate with high-voltage and low amperage. It is the amperage that is the critical disabling factor.
When you are looking for a self-defense product such as a stun gun or pepper spray for your personal safety and/or female self-defense do your homework and get the best product you can have for the money. Not all pepper sprays and stun devices are created equal. They may all do the same thing-some just do it better than others.
