Taser M26 Holster

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Wouldn’t you like to give an assailant or attacker a nice little jolt? Do you work as a professional security guard and need to equip yourself with something that has the stopping power of a firearm but isn’t lethal? Then a Taser® M26 or Taser® M26-C with a Taser® M26 Holster sounds like the self defense weapon you need.

Taser® is the most popular brand name in electronic tazers. Taser’s M26 model tazer is used by law enforcement agencies around the world. This model was discontinued by Taser but a newer similar model called the Taser®M26-C is now marketed. Both models share the same type and design or carrying case, the Taser M26 holster.

A tazer is an effective yet non-lethal self defense weapon. They are fashioned similarly to hand guns but are a non-lethal alternative. The Taser®M26-C produces a 50,000 volt charge rendering the target temporarily incapacitated. Unlike a stun gun that also administers a high voltage shock, the tazer itself does not have to touch the assailant. Instead the Taser®M26-C uses compressed nitrogen cartridges to propel two probes or electrodes up to a distance of 15 feet at approximately 180 feet per second.

Once the fired probes make contact, the electrical charge delivered through the corresponding wires they are connected to result in and individual’s loss of neuromuscular function, balance, and the ability to move in a coordinated fashion. Taser® brand tazers are not considered a firearm and may be legally carried concealed or open in 43 states. Taser M26 holsters are specifically designed for this purpose. Tazer devices are prohibited from use by non-law enforcement individuals in the states of Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Michigan ( in Michigan, private investigators, bail agents, and properly trained aircraft crews may use them).

Security Camera King offers two different types of Taser M26 holster. We offer the Taser M-26C Blade Tech holster in both left and right handed models. These holsters allow you to carry the Taser M26 or Taser M26-C using the quick release patented Tek-Lok System. These holsters feature the convenience offered by a Tek-Lok clip that allows removal of the holster without removing your belt or straps.

Security Camera King also offers right and left hand Taser M26 holsters that fit around your thigh and our secured by an additional strap to your belt. Generally used by most law enforcement agencies, this Taser M26 holster is made of heavy duty nylon as it is designed for heavy use.

Taser M26 holsters not only provide you with a means of safely and properly carrying your M26 or M26-C but they also help you to protect it from loss or accidental misfiring. Both holster types are effective for carrying the tazer and are comfortable and easy to wear.

Pepper Spray For Defense

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Although nothing can say “I love you” like a bouquet of flowers, nothing can say “GET AWAY FROM ME” like pepper spray for defense. This has become a universal tool for self defense around the world and is used by many law enforcement agencies as well as the U.S. Department of Defense.

Using pepper spray for defense can deter, stop, or at least slow down a potential attacker or assailant. It is also used as a riot or crowd control agent and is useful as a self-defense agent to ward off attacks by dogs and bears.

Pepper spray is also referred to as OC gas or OC spray after the effective ingredient Oleoresin Capsicum. Plants in the genus Capsicum produce the chemical compound Oleoresin Capsicum in the fruit (pepper) of the plant. OC is harvested from the pepper by extracting capsicum in a finely ground form. Mixing ethanol with the capsicum extracts capsaicin; once the ethanol evaporates, a waxy resin substance remains which is Oleoresin Capsicum. OC is mixed with liquid emulsifiers to distribute it in a solution of water which can then be sprayed on a potential assailant.

OC pepper spray is sold and marketed as a safe, non-lethal weapon of defense. However, in rare cases it may be responsible for death as documented by the ACLU of Southern California in a 1995 publication.

The use of pepper spray for defense is regulated in some states with each of these states specifying their own requirements. For example, California requires that the container of pepper spray must be less than 2.5 ounces; in Michigan the spray must contain less than 2% OC; and, in New Jersey non-felons 18 years of age an older can possess no more than .75 ounces.

OC pepper spray has become a replacement for, and in some cases an adjunct to tear gas. Two common tear gases are phenacyl chloride usually called CN and 2-chlorobenzalmalononnitrile usually called CS. Pepper spray, like these two tear gases, is known as a lachrymatory compound. A lachrymatory compound causes eye irritation, pain, tearing, and temporary blindness. In addition, pepper spray also has the potential for causing skin irritation in the form of a burning sensation.

Security Camera King carries a full line of pepper sprays for defense and pepper spray accessories. (To see a comprehensive on-line catalog of our pepper sprays and accessories click on “Security Equipment” then “Personal Protection” then “Pepper Spray” on the left hand side of our web site.

We carry a variety of small sizes and types of canisters that together meet the requirements of most all states. We also offer larger canisters of 4, 8, 9, and 16 ounces and include sprays with varying concentrations such as our 10 or 18% OC sprays. In addition, we offer different types of sprays as well, including fog sprays and stream sprays. Our full line of pepper spray for defense accessories includes leatherette holsters in a variety of colors, visor clips, and key chains. We even offer a handbook on the proper use of pepper spray for defense.

A particularly interesting item we have available for sale is our “stunning” ring. This men’s or women’s ring is a pepper sprayer that can deliver a spray with a range of up to 6 inches. The ring can be refilled for repeated used.

We also offer a triple action spray, which provides a one-two-three punch to a would-be attacker. Our Mace brand triple action spray has three ingredients, OC pepper spray, CN tear gas, and a UV dye. The first two ingredients introduce the one-two punch to an assailant by causing eye tearing, temporary blindness, choking, and coughing etc. The third ingredient, an Ultra Violet (UV) dye can only be seen using an ultra violet light. This is used to mark the individual to increase the probability of identification after being apprehended.
