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.

If you are interested in purchasing a Taser M26 holster or a Taser M26-C tazer and holster combination, check out our selection on our web page under “Security Equipment.” then “Personal Protection,” and “Taser.” If you have any additional questions about the Taser® brand line of tazers and tazer accessories, contact one of our security experts by clicking on “Live Chat” or calling 866-573-8878 Monday through Friday from 9AM to 6PM EST.


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.

Spring Airsoft Rifles

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Spring airsoft rifles are a safe yet realistic alternative to the real rifles they are modeled after, however spring airsoft rifles look and feel like the real thing. Spring airsoft rifles shoot 6 mm plastic BBs or paintballs instead of real ammunition or metal BBs making them an excellent alternative to the real rifle for use in simulations or training and for sport and leisure gaming.

Airsoft is a generic term used to describe any weapon that shoots plastic 6 mm round pellets or BBs. This ammunition is larger than conventional steel, copper, or other metal BBs which normally have a caliber of 4.5 mm. Typically, the BBs weigh .20 grams or heavier and are normally sold based on the weight of the pellet. In addition, airsoft weapons may be constructed to use a variety of propellant methods for shooting the plastic pellet including electric gear driven power boxes, gas, and spring action.

Most high quality spring airsoft rifles are exact replicas of their real counterparts. The gun body is even constructed of full jacketed metal and weighs the same as the original. This provides the most realistic training available while maintaining a much safer disposition to the weapon. In addition, realistic rifle accessories such as magnifying and non magnifying scopes and laser sights are also available maintaining the most realistic mock-up possible.

Airsoft guns are normally categorized based on whether they are handguns or rifles. Rifles are further categorized into three basic groups based on how the projectile is propelled, gas, electric, and spring. Although every model has its own unique list of specifications, as a general rule the muzzle velocity of a spring airsoft rifle is between an electric gear box driven model and a gas model.

Typical velocities for automatic electric gear box driven rifles range from approximately 200 to 380 Feet Per Second (FPS), while gas powered rifles average approximately 450 to 500 FPS (again, this is just an average as each model is different). Spring airsoft rifles typically range from about 350 to 450 FPS. Depending on the model, the shooting range of an airsoft spring rifle ranges from 70 – 250 feet, with most shotgun models at the lower end of the range and most sniper type rifles at the top.

Gas powered airsoft rifles may use CO2, Green Gas, or even propane to propel the plastic BBs out of the rifle. Spring airsoft rifles are powered by the potential energy stored in a spring by the user “coking back” the spring for each shot. The spring is attached to an airtight piston that is housed within a cylinder. When the trigger is pressed, the spring instantly transfers all of its potential energy into kinetic energy by releasing the piston which is pushed forward at a high rate of speed inside the cylinder. This causes the air within the cylinder to become high compressed, forcing the plastic BB forward out the barrel.

Some spring airsoft rifle models offer additional spring upgrades for purchase. These spring upgrades offer a higher tension spring which can store and release more energy. This in turn creates a projectile with a faster muzzle velocity (FPS) and a potentially longer distance range.

There are basically three types of spring airsoft rifles. Single shot rifles shoot single shots of BBs and simulate many of their real counterparts. Shotguns look and feel like their real counterparts, however instead of firing a spread of small BBs or “shot” like a real shotgun, they usually are made to fire one plastic BB. Sniper rifles, as their name implies, simulate the look and feel of their real high-powered counterparts.

Spring airsoft rifles offer an economical, safe alternative to real rifles. They allow the user to become comfortable with carrying and using the rifle while offering a safe alternative for target practice, training and simulations. Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies as well as the U.S. Department of Defense use spring airsoft rifles for training and simulations.

Self Defense Weapons

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

In this day and age, self defense weapons may play a vital role in saving yours or some other friend’s or relative’s life. Security Camera King recognizes this fact and carries, in addition to its wide supply of security video system supplies, an ample supply of practical self defense weapons.

Check out our full line of self defense weapons. We carry folding knives, handcuffs, mace pepper sprays, animal repellent, stun guns, tazers, and even instructional fighting DVDs.

The following is a brief description of some of the self defense weapons and devices that we offer. For prices and more specific information on specific devices click on “Personal Protection” on the left hand side of our web page and select the specific item you are interested in.

Folding Knives
Security Camera King carries several different folding knives that can be used as self defense weapons. Fend off would be attackers with the flash of a professional folding knife. These knives are constructed of professional grade 420 stainless steel and are designed for easy opening with just one hand. We have a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and clip types.

Locking Cuffs
Locking cuffs aren’t always considered as a self defense weapon, however restraining an individual can be your first line of self defense. Security Camera King offers a variety of metal locking cuffs, including thumb cuffs, handcuffs, and leg cuffs.

Mace Pepper Sprays
The original chemical composition of mace was a 1% solution of phenacyl chloride, a tear gas chemical, suspended in a solution of 2-butanol, propylene glycol, cyclohexene, and dipropylene glycol methyl ether. Since this formulation is not allowed in many states and several countries, it is marketed on a limited basis by the owner of the registered trademark, Mace Security International. Most sprays designed as self defense weapons today and most marketed by Mace are now pepper sprays.

Pepper sprays so called because of their active ingredient, oleoresin capsicum, (also called “OC,” the ingredient that makes hot peppers hot!) cause uncontrollable coughing, choking, temporary blindness, and a burning sensation. These effects are all temporary and do not cause permanent damage. However, nothing says “BACK OFF” better than a one or two second burst of pepper spray. Even most law enforcement agencies and the military use OC pepper sprays as a self defense weapon. Security Camera King carries a full line of Mace brand:

• 10% pepper sprays;
• Pepper spray cartridges;
• Refill kits; and
• Holsters.

We even offer the Mace brand “Triple Action” spray that contains pepper, tear gas, and ultraviolet dye that can help to identify an assailant.

Animal Repellent
Not only can self defense weapons protect you from people attempting to do you harm, but attacks by animals are prevalent too. Just ask the postman, utility meter reader, or package courier. For times when the animal kingdom has you cornered we suggest our Mace brand canine repellent spray or even our Mace brand or Guard Alaska bear sprays.

We also carry an electronic ultrasonic dog repeller. This electronic device operates on a 9 volt battery to produce a sound that humans can’t hear but dogs can. The repeller also has a bright LED strobe light and together they can prevent a dog from advancing up to 40 feet away.

Stun Guns and Tazers
Stun guns are handheld devices that deliver a high voltage, low amperage charge when they come in contact with your assailant. This much electrical energy at once causes several reactions in muscle and nerve cells, interrupting their normal ability to function, throwing your attacker off balance and momentarily stunned, allowing you the opportunity to escape.

We have many varieties, types and accessories ranging from straight stun guns that deliver a 100,000 volt jolt, to stun guns that look like lipstick cases that deliver a 950,000 volt jolt to a flash light offers up a charge of 3.5 million volts.

Tazers have been called the stun gun that flies. Our Taser brand Tazers shoot two small dart-like electric probes into a potential assailant up to 15 feet away. Once the darts make contact, its time for power; several thousand volts of power.
We offer a full line of tazers and tazer accessories including holsters, batteries, and secondary cartridge clips.

So if it’s self defense weapons that you’re looking for, remember that Security Camera King carries more than just security cameras. Check out our full selection of items today.
