The taser is a little pricey...when compared with a 200,000 volt stun gun, batteries included with handling and shipping for under $25.00.

We market a full line of these self defense products. If you would like to see what it available go to
We have pepper spray for as little as ten bucks and stun guns starting at nineteen dollars. This is some cheap peace of mind. Everyone should have some kind of personal protection.

I have Jamb Braces on my doors and it gives me a peace of mind knowing the doors cannot be kicked in. While discussing the Jamb Brace with a police officer he told me he learned about them first-hand. He tried to kick a door in with a Jamb Brace by running and giving it the "police officer" kick, but he ended up bouncing off the door and landed on the driveway on his butt. The other officers laughed at him. That "sold" him on the Jamb Brace.

These are all great products, but just because KCPD says they are better than guns doesn't mean they are right. You have the chosen right to protect yourself with a firearm. If you aren't comfortable with a gun, then a gun is not right for you. If you want to purchase a gun make sure you get properly trained. I have witnessed people become prey to the criminals and the tables could have been turned with if they were armed. Ladies, you can use deadly force to prevent rape. If you don't believe me then look it up.

There are many inexpensive self defense products designed especially for women. The 4.5 million volt Runt Stun Gun is compact and easy to conceal. This product along with pepper sprays and gels are effective tools for personal protection against an attacker.

Hy-Vee on 76th & State Line and 122nd & State Line carry pepper spray, personal alarms and door stop alarms.

I have been in the safety business for 15 years. Pepper spray is my most popular item. I took the OC/Pepper Spray training class at the Police Academy when I started because I wanted to be informed. I have researched over the years and consider myself well-versed in pepper spray issues and usage.

Therefore, I stress that if pepper spray is your weapon of choice, you have to test it before you need it (outside). This let's you know that it works and you become familiar with the spray pattern. You have to know how to use it. You need to know the effects, as well.

Personal alarms are a good alternative. You need to practice using whatever weapon you choose. You need to be comfortable and know that it will work when you need it. Pepper spray has a limited shelf life, typically 2-3 years. Check your expiration dates. You can get pepper spray for under $15. Beware of cheap aprays, make sure they are pure OC and at least 2 million SHUs.

I just read that wasp spray was much more affective and accurate than pepper spray
