In Oregon, do you need a concealed weapons permit to carry a taser? What about pepper spray?

October 8th, 2013

I have a creep in my neighborhood pepper spraying young women and beating the crap out of them. Was wondering if it legal for me to carry a taser (the one that shoots those rods out) in my car or purse?? And what about pepper spray? Do I need a concealed weapons permit?

No, not in state law. An absence of a law on something of that nature would generally constitute legal standing. However, Taser requires a background check to activate the product. Essentially, when you buy a taser, it’s an expensive paperweight and then you have to call and activate it, and taser will perform the check themselves.
As for pepper spray, it’s always a good idea, and I am mulling over the idea of carrying it as a less lethal alternative to my firearm. I recommend either FOX or Red Saber, but get the ones that use tear gas, UV dye, and a high oleoresin capsicum (OC) percentage. The package will give the percentage and an SHU score, which is the Scoville Heat Unit rank, it shows how hot the product is. Look up the scoville heat unit index for reference.
While less lethal alternatives are a great asset to have, they have their problems.
Tasers are equipped with a cartridge that contains one set of electrodes, if you missed, your only hope will be to dump the cartridge and get up close and personal with the bad guy and use it as a stun gun. The other problem is that tasers were designed for cops, who could deploy the electrodes, and drop the threat long enough to cuff him or her. Tasers aren’t stun guns and they cause loss of consciousness, they are used as pain compliance tools to disrupt the nervous system long enough to stop the immediate threat and cuff him. In a matter of seconds after the taser quits firing he will regain his mobility.
Pepper spray is better because it delivers fast acting results however it’s possible that It can cause a response from your body, for instance it could cause you to suffer the same effects by proximity.
Not to discourage you, by all means carry either or both, but getting a gun, learning how to use it and becoming proficient with it, then getting a license is a great idea. It’s my belief that everyone should carry one or all three of these things as situations differ.
Good luck.

What works betters, pepper spray gel or regular pepper spray?

August 8th, 2013

Im about 15 and am looking for a self defense method, and pepper spray seemed the way to go. What is the best product? I was looking at Mace brand pepper spray gel, but want to know if there is better product. For the record, I have never had any self defense classes and do not have a working cell phone.

Depends on what you want. There is a pepper spray that you can spray on the persons body, i.e. hand, legs, anything, and it will burn. And there’s one you can only spray in the eyes, and it will burn. I know the one you spray on the body isnt actually called pepper spray, its something else. But you can try that or if you really want something neat or someone that will scare someone, you can get a stun gun. Its not a tazer, but it gives a little shock and will probably scare most people because they think its a tazer. There are a lot of options that you can look at. Just find one that suits you best.

Self Defense Products – Which Non Lethal Weapon Is Best For You

August 7th, 2012

Self defense products offer a nonlethal alternative to deadly force. They give you time to get away from a dangerous situation and seek help. Nothing more! There are lots of nonlethal self defense weapons to choose from. Self defense items like stun guns, tasers and pepper sprays all work and are easy-to-use and very effective.

Here is a comparison of the three most common ones.

1. Pepper sprays-these are the smallest in the cheapest of the three with prices starting at $10. They provide up to 45 minutes of safety for you to seek help at a dangerous situation. Some come disguised. The lipstick pepper spray is one of the most popular. No one can tell what it is. The Mace pepper gun has a range of 25 feet. Almost all pepper sprays shoot a 10 percent solution of oleoresin capsicum (OC) which is nasty stuff. It causes shortness of breath, coughing, and heavy tearing of the eyes almost to the point of closing them. Oh and severe pain.

2. Stun guns must be applied to an assailant up close and personal. A lot of people have a hard time with that. They are hand held devices with usually two prongs on one end. The prongs conduct an electrical charge that when applied to an assailant for 3 to 5 seconds causes the body to over work so much that all blood sugars are used up depleting energy levels. No long-lasting damage is done.

3. Tasers – shoot two electrified barbs up to 15 feet away. In tests done tasers have more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun. They are used by over 11,000 law enforcement agencies in the country. Does that give you an idea how effective they are? The taser overrides the central nervous system providing a nearly 100 percent take down rate.

Which is best for you? Only you can decide. I always recommend a pepper spray and a stun gun for short and long range protection.
