  • Discover the Effects of a Stun Gun and Taser

    I recently received an email asking me a direct and interesting questions about what are the effects of a stun gun and Taser. I thought it would benefit everyone and wanted to share it here on the blog.

    Question concerning Taser stun guns: What is the exact effect on the body from the stun gun? In films you will see the victim of the stun gun tense their muscles without making any noises. Is this correct? It’s not very convincing. When hit by a Taser there is pain? And pain causes screaming and noises, right?

    Answer:  Well, I’m not sure why it would matter if someone screamed or not. I would think acquiring the desired result would be more important?  But from my experiences it depends greatly on the individual’s ability to tolerate electric stimulation.

    Stun Guns and Taser do not cause great amounts of pain but instead disrupt the signal from the brain to the body and in the case of the advanced air Taser it causes the muscles to involuntarily contract. They shut down motor function and/or muscular t-wave signals.

    Stun guns and Tasers actually operate a bit different, I have recently posted two articles regarding both stun guns and Taser guns and here are the links:

    https://www.securitydefenseweapons.com/learn-about-stun-guns.html

    https://www.securitydefenseweapons.com/how-does-taser-gun-work.html

    It is more likely that someone will not make much noise when a stun gun or Taser are used. This is due to the fact that high voltage, in itself, is not dangerous. One can receive a 25,000-volt shock of static electricity from a doorknob on a dry day without harm, pain and without a large vocal response.

    The physiological and pain effect of electrical shock is determined by the current, its duration, and the power source that produces the shock.

    The typical household current of 110 volts is dangerous because it can pump many amperes of current throughout the body indefinitely thus producing greater pain and thus possibly causing a verbal response.

    By contrast, the ADVANCED TASER power supply consists of 8 AA alkaline 1.5-Volt batteries capable of supplying 26 Watts of electrical power for only a few seconds, so the chance is much greater that the recipient will not have time to react verbally.

    So, whether or not someone will make any noise would depend on many factors. (i.e. there tolerance, where attacked, where they surprised and/or the amount of force used to apply stun (stun guns only).

  • Protect Your Home With An Individualized Plan For Home Security

    What level of importance do you place on home security? Protecting your home needs to be a top priority these days, and you may have seen various commercials or advertisements regarding how home security systems have changed with technology. All kinds of upgrades are available, but of course each home is different. There are also things you can do on your own when it comes to home protection. Look closely at your options for home security, and remind yourself of projects that you can take on, too.

    One of the features of a good home security system that comes to mind Security Camera a Good Home Protection Toolis the security camera. Could you use one or more security cameras for your home? This is going to cost a little extra money initially, and it does require maintenance. Still, This is one of the best features when it comes to protecting your home, and the home automation features via mobile technology aren't so bad either.

    What type of locks do you have on your home? One of my friends I've seen own two luxury houses, and each time, the back door locks were flimsy and malfunctioned. Why would you have a lock on your home like that, when it could easily be compromised? Of course, they do have a solid home security system. I'm not getting onto them, but it makes for a great example of how you might realize that the locks for your home could use an upgrade.

    What kind of lighting do you have outside your home? You can get motion detection lights, or you can simply keep your home lit up. Also, you need to consider what you do with your home while you're gone. Home automation was mentioned, and the video surveillance can provide you with a visual while you're out and about running errands in town or even on vacation.

    Do you have good locks on your windows? Are there any other places on your home where your security could easily be breached? Make sure your entire home is protected, and this can mean adding extra sensors on windows and the likes. You're also going to want the best monitoring service, and another thing has yet to be mentioned, the control panel. The control panel you have really does matter, and you do of course want a wireless system these days, right?

    Knife AttackAfter someone is mugged or attacked they often start searching for a spray to purchase and begin carrying a self defense pepper spray. While this is an excellent form of personal security, the reality is they must also add some form of pepper spray training and research.

    They may have read about how pepper spray works and that it will give an opponent a burning pain in their eyes and on their skin leaving them temporarily disabled giving you time to get away and find assistance. They realize that defense sprays are non lethal and leaves absolutely no long term harm.

    Although a self defense spray is generally simple to use it is very important to know how to use them in different conditions. There are many great pepper spray resources on the internet, but sometimes seeing it in print helps it to sick in better.

    Another thing you should find out about prior to purchasing your personal defense spray is the laws on its use in different states. Once you are certain that your chosen self defense spray is authorized in your area, you have protected yourself by not disobeying the law.

    I recently had a stories sent to me about someone whom had purchased a pepper spray from our store. They were walking home coming from work and saw a mugging. They ran up to the mugger, blasted them in the face with their pepper spray. The attacker hit the ground and he helped the mugging victim contact the authorities.

    I was pleased that he was able to help someone else using his 18% Wildfire Pepper Spray. He was so proud of this, when he could not even help myself previously against an assailant. If he hadn't learned more about using defense spray this would not have been possible.

  • How to Avoid Being Robbed at the ATM

    Avoid Being Robbed at the ATMAn ATM cash machine is a convenient way to access your money. Life can be hectic and many people simply cannot get to their bank, during banking hours to withdraw money or make a deposit. Many people don't pay attention to what's going on around them when they use a cash machine.

    However, awareness and a little planning are required in order to stay safe. Just because an ATM is available 24/7 does not mean that it is always safe to use it.

    Many people have been robbed at the ATM machine. The robberies generally occur at night between 8 PM and midnight. The robbers are usually done by one person who is typically a male under the age of 25. The robber will often position himself nearby and wait for the victim to approach the machine and take out cash. Most victims are females who are alone.

    Many of the victims claim they did not see the robber approach. The robber would use a gun or claim to have a weapon when they confront the victim and demand their money.

     If you use an ATM machine on a regular basis, here are some ways to keep yourself safe.

    1. Ways to Survive Being Robbed at Gun PointOnly use an ATM machine that is located in a well-lit, high-traffic area. Don't go to remote locations or hidden areas behind a building, pillar or wall.
    2. Make sure the ATM is in view of the public. Look for possible hiding places before you approach the ATM. Are their shrubs or overgrown trees that a person could hide behind? ATM robbers use the power of surprise against their victim and don't want witnesses.
    3. Many robbers like to find an ATM locations that provide a good escape route like near a high-speed thoroughfare or freeway on-ramp.
    4. Choose an ATM that feels and looks safe. This might mean driving a couple of miles out of your way. Try to use the ATM during daylight hours. If you must go after hours, take someone with you, if possible.
    5. When you arrive at the ATM scan the area for suspicious people and hiding places. If you see someone questionable standing nearby or waiting in their car, drive away.
    6. If you approach an ATM on foot, have your access card ready. Memorize your PIN number to prevent loss. After inserting the card and entering your PIN, keep an eye on your surroundings.
    7. Do not accept an offer to help or request help from a person standing near the machine. If anyone suspicious approaches or if the situation seems dangerous, terminate your transaction and leave the area. This may mean you have to run and leave the ATM card in the machine.
    8. If a suspicious person approaches you say "back off" in a loud and firm voice. This may startle the person, which can give you time to flee if needed.
    9. When you get your money from the ATM put it away immediately, remove your card and leave the area. Until you are safely away from the area or are in your car, pay close attention to your surroundings.
    10. The same rules apply when you are using a drive-thru ATM machine. Keep your vehicle in gear and your foot on the brake. Watch your rear and side view mirrors while using the machine. Robbers will often approach from the rear on the driver's side.
    11. If you are facing an armed robber, give them the cash. Do not fight. The cash is not worth getting hurt or killed. After the robber has left, get to a safe area and call the police.

    In order to stay safe when using the ATM, remember these 8 tips:

    1. Avoid ATM RobberiesDon't use an ATM machine if the lights around the machine are broken.
    2. Avoid ATM machines that are near obvious hiding places.
    3. Have your card and PIN number ready, do your transaction and leave quickly.
    4. Do not count your cash in public.
    5. Beware of offers to help from strangers.
    6. Don't fight with the robber or attempt to follow him.
    7. If you carry a self defense device like a personal alarm or hot self defense spray have it in your hand when you walk up to the ATM.
    8. If you've been robbed, drive or walk to a safe place and call the police.
