The Mace Pepper Gun is a great self defense tool. The advantage of the Mace gun over traditional pepper sprays is it’s ease of use. A typical key-chain pepper spray with a pull down actuator is a little more difficult to aim accurately. However, because the Mace gun has a trigger similar to an actual firearm, it’s easier to keep steady and results in a more accurate aim.

Mace Pepper Guns are refillable. The replacement cartridges are 28 grams (about 1 oz) and water-filled practices cartridges are also available.

It’s a pepper-packed self-defense weapon, containing a canister of 10% OC pepper spray. It can send a stream of liquid whoop-ass 25 feet and make any predator cry like a school girl.

Good Samaritan Gives Away Free Pepper Spray In India

Pepper Spray

Pepper Spray

Hyderabad, India – A good Samaritan named Raman Garimella has been giving away free pepper spray canisters to women in Hyderabad in an effort to help women protect themselves against the recent rash of crimes against women.

Garimella doesn’t think the best answer to women’s self defense issues is participating in candlelight vigils, holding hands singing kumbaya or even waiting around for the police. Instead he believes that women should take an active role in their own self defense, by arming themselves with pepper spray.

He believes this approach will also change the way men think about women. He wants to empower women, while simultaneously making some men think twice before trying to target a defenseless woman. So, he has decided to supply free pepper spray to all who request it.

His Facebook page says, “Pervs aren’t going to stop as long as consequences are not scary enough. What does scare men is the idea of being pepper sprayed their heads off. Ladies, if you are in Hyderabad and need it, message me for a free bottle of pepper spray and a whistle.”

Recently he has been contacted by more women than he can count. “I used to give pepper spray to my sister and friends but after the Delhi incident, I decided to give away these cans to women who needed them. I think that every woman should carry one. They are not heavy and it can ward off a man for at least 20 minutes. I was surprised to see the impact the status created after I put that up on Facebook. I got many calls from girls who wanted these sprays. And some of my male friends too got pepper sprays for their sisters and relatives as New Year gifts,” he said.

He says he doesn’t want to start a campaign or a movement but simply wants to do his part to help society and hopefully offer some piece of mind and self protection for women.

“I am not here to give advice to men or women. I just want to do my bit so that if caught in such a situation, women can stand up for themselves and protect their lives rather than depending on someone else,” he said.

British Judge Punishes Victim For Pepper Spray Self Defense

Don't Get Caught Defending Yourself In Great Britain

Don’t Get Caught Defending Yourself In Great Britain

The Brits are at it again, scolding their citizens for trying to protect themselves against people who would do them harm.

“Society could descend into anarchy if the public arm themselves with weapons including pepper spray.”That is the dire warning of District judge Martin Walker.

Judge Walker made the statement following the sentencing of Michael Andrew Race from Crook after he admitted using a can of police issue pepper spray in self defense on a man who had confronted him at his home.

Yes, you read that correctly, he used it in self defense on a man who confronted him at his own home! No mention of what sentance was given to the man who showed up at the victims home, with bad intentions no doubt.

Judge Walker, admitted that he believed Mr. Race was provoked into discharging the spray but said he had crossed the line, and self defense was used as an excuse.

Prosecutor John Garside claimed the victim suffered temporary minor injuries to his eyes after the altercation outside Race’s home on December 6.

Judge for yourself, here are the facts of the case obtained from court transcripts;

Twenty four year-old Race was at home repairing his motorcycle when his partner received a phone call from a man to say he was coming over to fight. The man had been in an ongoing dispute over money with Race’s partner and decided he’d had enough and decided to use force to resolve the dispute.

The man showed up with several friends in tow and they began arguing over money.

Fearing for his safety, Race discharged a canister of Pava spray on the man, according to court testimony.

(Pava spray is a defensive spray similar to pepper spray that is typically issued to police in Britain. How Race obtained the Pava is unclear.)

The prosecution actually had the gall to ask for compensation to be awarded to the unnamed man but Judge Walker said it would not be appropriate as the other man had confronted Race outside his home and provoked him.

The judge said: “This is a case of over use of force in self defense but not sufficient for the defense of self defense to be made out.

We’re not sure how pepper spray could be considered on over use of force since it’s non-lethal and doesn’t cause any permanent damage.

“If everybody was able to arm themselves with items like this spray we would have anarchy in our country.”

Quite the contrary, if everyone were allowed to posses pepper spray or any self defense device for that matter, thugs might think twice before they victimize innocent citizens. And if that doesn’t deter them, at least people can some way to protect themselves.

Race was given a 12 month community order with supervision and ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge.

It’s unbelievable that someone could show up at another person’s home with the stated intention of violence against the homeowner, bring several other men as back-up, instigate an altercation and then be considered a victim. It’s even more outrageous that the homeowner can discharge a canister of pepper spray out of fear for his own safety and be prosecuted for it.

The fact that the aggressor brought several friends with him clearly indicates that he was either looking to use force or wanted to intimidate his intended target.

It’s unfortunate that British authorities can’t or refuse to make a distinction between the defensive use of force and an aggressive use of force. Justice has been turned upside down when victims are prosecuted and aggressors are coddled and treated as victims.

Great Britian is an example of what happens when the government bans all weapons. Good people are left with no way to defend themselves.

CMU Student Government Wants To Lift Pepper Spray Ban On Campus

Will Pepper Spray Soon Be Legal To Carry At CMU?

Will Pepper Spray Soon Be Legal To Carry At CMU?

Mt. Pleasant, Michigan – Central Michigan University student government members have drafted legislation in the student Senate calling for school administrators to lift the ban on pepper spray and other self defense items that are already considered legal by the state of Michigan.

Many students carry pepper spray just to feel safe, even if they don’t believe they’ll ever have to use it. However, under current CMU policy, it’s considered a violation to carry it, and penalties range from suspension to expulsion.

“I just think that’s really unfair and given circumstances of late, it seems like a bad policy,” said William Joseph, a member of the Student Government Association at the university, referring to a recent incident that occurred on campus.

Joseph introduced the legislation to eliminate the ban on pepper spray. He pointed out that an attack on campus in January reinforces the validity of the the student government’s proposal. On Jan. 16, a female student was abducted while walking on campus. It occurred right in front of the Student Activities Center and she was brutally assaulted before she broke free and managed to escape.

“I think it’s just something else you can take as a precaution,” said Joseph.

A Typical Pepper Spray Key-Chain

A Typical Pepper Spray Key-Chain

Although pepper spray and other self-defense devices are illegal on the CMU campus, many students still carry small, pepper spray key-chains that are easy to conceal. Ironically, The CMU Bookstore, which is on campus, sells pepper spray.

CMU student reps want to change the language that makes it illegal to possess pepper spray to help make students feel safer and make the campus a safer place to be.

“If this repeal of the ban ends up helping just one person here on campus, then it’s definitely worth it,” said student representative Jenny Moiles.

The legislation still has to pass one more branch of student government before it reaches the Central Michigan’s Board of Trustees and the university president. Those parties have the ultimate power to override current weapons policies on campus.

Pepper spray is currently legal to carry in the state of Michigan. The change that the student government is proposing would simply follow current state laws.

Let’s hope common sense prevails and school administrators approve the proposed change. Under currant policy, students are sitting ducks for predators who know their victims have no way to protect themselves. Policies similar to to those at CMU only function to embolden criminals who realize they’ll have little resistance from an unarmed victim.

How Stun Guns Work

The Runt Rechargeable Stun Gun

The Runt Rechargeable Stun Gun

A stun gun is a self defense device that discharges electricity, disrupting the human body’s natural electrical signals. Most stun guns have between two to four metal contacts that, when touched against someone, will immediately send an electrical charge into the body. The ensuing electrical charge affects the central nervous system and will incapacitate even the largest of men. But how does it work and how much damage can it cause? To answer those questions it’s important to review basic concept of electricity and how it affects the human body.


A common misconception among many people is that the shock from a stun gun can cause serious injury or death. While it’s true that exposure to electricity can lead to serious organ damage and death, this is not true of stun guns. If an electrical charge is high in amps it can lead to death, but high voltage will do nothing more than cause pain. Think of voltage as pressure or intensity and amperage as speed. The human body can take a lot of electrical “pressure” (voltage) at a low current or “speed” (amperage). The higher the speed, the more likely that severe damage will occur. Most stun guns can emit a charge of up to several million volts, but less than 10 milliamps. So a stun gun sends an electrical charge at a great intensity into the human body but does so at a very low rate of speed.

The following table gives examples of amperage and the effect on the human body;

  • 1 milliamp – Tingling Sensation in the muscles.
  • 3 – 5 milliamps – Muscle contractions, moderate pain, loss of balance and disorientation, some voluntary muscle control is still maintained.
  • 6 – 15 milliamps – Painful, complete loss of muscle control.
  • 100 – 200 milliamps – Extreme pain, Ventricular fibrillation (uneven, uncoordinated pumping of the heart.) Muscular contraction and nerve damage begins to occur. Death is likely.


Tasers (a brand of stun gun) used by police have been wrongly blamed for some high profile deaths in recent years. However, subsequent investigations have shown that the deaths were mainly caused by outside influences and not the stun gun itself. Most of the individuals who died after contact with a stun gun were under the influence of mind-altering drugs like cocaine. According to research, the presence of cocaine in the bloodstream increases the “shock” from a stun gun by 50 to 100 percent.

Source: Ten researchers led by Dr D Lakkireddy from the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio, and reported in the August 2006 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

So, it isn’t actually the stun gun, but the presence of “illegal” drugs that was the catalyst. Without the presence of drugs in their system, they would have experienced a mild shock. The charge generated from a stun gun alone cannot cause death. Two to five milliamps simply isn’t enough amperage to cause death to a human being. However, when that amperage is increased by outside influences, the stun gun, or the user can’t be blamed.


Stun Flashlight

Stun Flashlight

Electricity is present in the human body, without it we wouldn’t be able to perform simple tasks. The brain sends an electrical signal to nerve cells which then sends it to muscles telling them to expand or contract, to perform a particular function like walking or picking up an object. The muscle then sends a message back to the brain telling it what an object feels or tastes like. All of these messages travel through the central nervous system.

A stun gun works by disrupting this communication between the brain and nerve cells. The muscles are confused by this disruption and the ensuing electrical shock tells them to contract and expand rapidly. This rapid movement and resulting stress on the muscles depletes the blood sugar and converts it to lactic acid. In layman’s terms, the muscles are forced to do a massive amount of work in a short time and are too exhausted to perform even the most basic functions, like standing up. This leads to a loss of balance and disorientation which will typically last thirty to forty minutes, and there is no permanent effect on the human body.

The effects of a stun gun will vary based on many factors; the type or model, how many seconds it touches an attacker, the size and weight of the attacker, and the physiological makeup of the individual. However, as a general guideline the following is usually true;

  • One second of contact will exact some pain and cause muscles to contract.
  • Two seconds of contact will lead to moderate pain, muscle spasms and some loss of balance.
  • Three seconds of contact will cause intense pain, confusion, disorientation and lead to a complete loss of balance.

Stun guns are a great self defense option, especially for women. They disrupt the natural electrical signals traveling through the central nervous system causing disorientation and a lack of balance. They pack a powerful punch but leave no lasting damage. For people who are uncomfortable carrying a lethal weapon like a fire arm, a great non-lethal solution is a stun gun.

Stupid Criminals Call 911 On Themselves?!?!

Pot Boy

When stupid criminals call 911 it’s never good. Here are a few hilarious examples of what happens when these criminal masterminds decide to use the phone.


When most criminals are unsure if their activities rise to the level of illegality, you’d think they would seek out the advice of an attorney, right? Well, not 21 year-old Robert Michelson from Connecticut. I guess he thought it might be a bit pricey to seek out legal advice the traditional way. So instead he decided to call information….911. Unfortunately for him he was off by 5 numbers. In most states, information is still 411.

Michelson called a 911 dispatcher and confessed that he was growing marijuana, but apparently he wasn’t trying to turn himself in. He simply wanted some legal advice on the penalties and fines for growing pot.

“I’m reporting a possible crime,” Michelson said, “I’m growing marijuana and I want to know how much trouble I can get in for one plant.”

After the dispatcher stopped laughing, she told him it depended on the size of his plant. Unbeknownst to Michelson, the police have, in their possession, some space age technology that allows them the capability of tracing 911 calls and tracking down the caller. Who knew? So as it turned out, it didn’t take long for the cops to show up at the stoned genius’s house and arrest him for possession, as well as several other charges.

The bad news for Michelson is he’ll be spending some time in the local jail. The good news is he got an answer to his question and didn’t have to pay for an attorney to get it.


Timothy Chapek

Timothy Chapek

Who is the dumbest criminal ever? This guy!! Meet Timothy Chapek, 25 from Portland Oregon. He thought it’d be a great idea to break into someone’s house and……..take a shower! That alone is enough to get him into the stupid criminal top 10, but his next move may send him straight to number one. While he was lathering up with a loofha, he heard the homeowner return home. So what does he do next? Hide in the house? Climb out a window and run away? No, he decided to call 911.

The following is a transcript from the hilarious call:

Burglar: “I just broke in to a house, and the owners came home!”

911 operator: “Wait, you broke into a house?”

Burglar: “Yeah.”

Burglar: “They can hear me.”

At this point the homeowner, Hillary McKenzie, arrives and can be heard on the call.

Hillary McKenzie: “Why are you in my house talking a shower?”

Burglar: “I’m sorry. My name is Timothy Chapek.”

McKenzie: “Why are you in my shower?”

Clark: “I broke in…”

McKenzie: “Alright, I am calling the police.”

Clark: “I have already called them, they are on the phone, right now.”

<strong>She eventually called the dispatcher from her cell phone.

McKenzie: “He’s in the bathroom, the door’s shut, and he said he is there, and I said (laughing), ‘who the hell are you?.”

911 operator: “Did he sound like he was high or drunk?”

McKenzie: “Well, he is obviously nuts.”

Chapek was charged with trespassing, and he becomes the latest in a long line of stupid criminals who have called 911 on themselves.

New Pepper Spray Can’t Be Taken Away And Used Against You


Defuser Pink

Defuser Pink

Apex Self Defense has added a new line of pepper spray to it’s inventory….the Defuser pepper spray. What makes the Defuser unique is that it has a disable pin built into the case. So, in the event it is taken from the user by an attacker, it can’t be used against the victim.

The DeFuser has a built in mechanical disable system that de-activates the unit if separated from its user, making it almost impossible for an attacker to use your own pepper spray against you.

Here’s how it works

Upon a forceful tug the DeFuser will separate from the wrist strap or key chain. When this happens the safety pin is dislodged from the bottom of the DeFuser which causes a slide plate to block the actuator from being depressed. The viewing window indicator will change from green to red showing you that the DeFuser has been de-activated.

The DeFuser can be re-armed by simply re-inserting the safety pin into the bottom of the unit. When you push the safety pin back in, the viewing window indicator will change from red to green showing you that the unit has been re-activated and is once again active and ready for discharge.

DeFuser is small and convenient, plus it fits perfectly into your purse, on your keys, or attached to your wrist. Walkers and joggers love the pink wrist strap / key chain combo because they can run with the DeFuser safely in the palm of their hand and not worry about dropping it.

They also have their keys conveniently attached to the DeFuser so they can run without a bulk of keys in their pocket. Having the keys attached to the your pepper spray offers additional benefits as well. If a struggle arises and the DeFuser is separated from its user, the keys will stay attached to the victims wrist allowing them to escape to their car or home for safety while the pepper spray is rendered useless to the attacker. With standard pepper sprays the keys are permanently attached to the unit and if the assailant gets your device away from you, they also get your keys.

Defuser Black

Defuser Black

In addition to this, your keys can now help defend you by swinging them at the assailants face, using them to gouge the attackers eyes, or bunch them up in your hand to increase the severity of your punch. No other pink pepper spray offers such protection! DeFuser is great for those reluctant to carry a defense weapon, and it also helps keep it accessible when you need it. Remember, pepper spray wont do you any good if you cant get to it. So don’t keep it on the counter at home, or in your glove box, Keep it with you!

One additional benefit of the Defuser pepper spray is that the disable pin can be intentionally disengaged from the unit to prevent accidental discharge by small children who tend to be curious and love to dig through mom’s purse.

Funny Mug Shot T-Shirts

Some of the funniest mugs we’ve ever seen, usually include some moron wearing a hilarious T-shirt. So here they are, some of the best t-shirts ever in a mug shot;

Super Freak!

Subject: Craig T. Wellington
Crime: Petty Theft, Public intoxication
Profile: Dating Rick James?

Craig apparently thought it was a good idea to steal a case of Red Bull from the back of an unattended delivery truck on a dare from a friend. Is it any surprise that alcohol was a factor in this equation?

Unfortunately for him, getting arrested was just the beginning of his problems. Next time, Craig may think twice about his wardrobe decisions when he leaves the house. As a rule of thumb, you never want to give the wrong impression about your sexuality to a group of men who’ve been locked up without any female companionship for months or years at a time.

Although, Rick James passed away in 2006, I’m sure someone in prison will be more than willing to take his place. Don’t bend over for the soap Craig!


You Can’t Fix Stupid

Subject: Laurence McGee
Crime: Indecent Exposure, Drug Possession
Profile: Placed 2nd in a 1978 Leif Garrett look-alike contest

Laurence had no idea how prophetic those words on his tee shirt were, one fateful night last August. The night started like any other Friday night for a swinging single dude, living in Seattle. Rush hour commute in traffic, a quick bite to eat, shower and shave and a trip to his dealer to buy some Rohypnol.

Laurence apparently had a fondness for the ladies that was not reciprocal. So this hopeless romantic decided he needed some help….chemically. He purchased the date rape drug, Rohypnol or Ruffies to help improve his odds of success.

He went to a local bar and met a potential prospect. When she wasn’t looking he slipped the date rape drug into her drink, or so he thought. Apparently he’d unknowingly put the Ruffies into his own drink by mistake. By the time police arrived he was in the parking lot, laying on the hood of a Honda Civic without any pants!

Luckily for us, mug shots are only from the waist up! Maybe we should introduce him to the Rick James guy?

Mitt Romney, Tide and A Fat Prisoner – Weird Crimes

The Romney Robber

The Romney Robber

Sterling, Virginia – A Wells Fargo bank was robbed last week by a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask. The robber, brandished a handgun and stole money from several tellers before making his escape.

This same bank was robbed two years ago by a robber wearing a Hillary Clinton Mask.

However, it was fitting that this man was wearing a Florida State sweatshirt, given that the university has had a history of ah …… criminal athletes.

Tide, The Newest Drug Of Choice

Tide, The Next World Currency?

Forget The Dollar, The Euro Or Yen, The newest currency is…..Tide?!?!

Law-enforcement officials across the country have been baffled by the latest crime wave targeting an unlikely item — Tide laundry detergent.

Theft of Tide detergent has become so rampant that some cities are setting up special task forces to stop it, and retailers like CVS are locking up the liquid.

One thief in St. Paul, Minn., stole approximately $25,000 worth of the laundry detergent before he was arrested early this year.

Tide has become a valuable currency on the streets. The retail price is pretty high — roughly $10 to $20 a bottle — and it’s a staple in households across socioeconomic classes.

Tide can go for $5 to $10 a bottle on the black market, cops say, and some thieves even resell it to stores.

“We sent in an informant to buy drugs,” Prince George’s County, Md., Detective Harrison Sprague said. “The dealer said, ‘I don’t have drugs, but I could sell you 15 bottles of Tide.’ ”

So far, as of this writing, George Soros hasn’t tried to manipulate the price of Tide on the world currency markets…..yet.

You’ll Never Believe How This Prisoner Smuggled A Gun Into Jail

Who Needs A Holster?

A Texas prisoner was charged with smuggling 9 mm into prison. The gun was found during a routine check of the prisoner’s cell. While it’s not completely unusual for people to smuggle things into jail, it was however the unique method of smuggling that authorities were surprised about.

The prisoner admitted to sneaking the weapon into the jail by hiding it under the folds of his fat. The prisoner also admitted to smuggling in some KFC and a bag of pretzels.

Apparently, when you weigh more than 600 lbs., you’ve got plenty of nooks and crannies to hide a gun and ammo.
