What is the Most Effective Self-Defense Item?

As the economy worsens and lots of folks are out of work, more ordinary citizens are turning to petty crime as a way to support their families. Robberies and home invasions top the list of crimes on the increase. Assaults, rape and even murder are on the rise too. And it seems as though it is getting worse every day.

Self-defense, especially female self-defense, as well as personal security and personal safety top the list of priorities for more citizens today than ever before. Enrollment in self-defense classes are up and the sales of self-defense items are booming.

Of all the self-defense items on the market today such as stun guns, pepper sprays, personal alarms and batons one stands out above the others as the most effective self-defense item. All these products work and have varying levels of effectiveness all the way up to 90% for stun guns and pepper sprays. But tasers have an effectiveness rating of close to 100% making them the most effective self-defense item in the world.

Think about this if you will. Why is it that over 12,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States and countless agencies in eight other countries carry tasers? The answer is easy. They provide the premier nonlethal self-defense item alternative to deadly force. There is none better than the taser.

Taser International has a lot of different models in their product line. Most of them are for law enforcement agencies. But several are available for civilian use. The M26C is modeled after the police model. The X26 C model uses a digital power magazine which not only powers the taser but offers other features as well.

The most popular taser for civilians by far is the C-2, which was introduced several years ago and is designed specifically for women with several color options including yellow, pink, silver, blue, red and black.

It does everything that the more expensive civilian models do but without some of the bells and whistles. It produces the same results as the police models with more stopping power than a popular hand gun.

The popular pink Taser C2 comes with two live cartridges, a holster, a practice target and then something brand-new, a training cartridge so you can practice. It is the most popular item for female self-defense

Tasers are often confused with a regular stun gun. What makes the taser unique is that it shoots out two electrified barbs that can travel up to 15 feet. The barbs are connected to the gun with wires that are electrified with 50,000 volts. Most regular stun guns are in the 1,000,000 volt category to give you an example.

The taser uses low-voltage and high wattage to disable an assailant. When it comes to nonlethal self-defense items the taser stands out as the most effective.
