Yoogo Self Defense Keychain

yoogo

It’s a cliché of so many movies: nervous girl walking back to her car in the dark, clutching her keys in her hands as if she’ll manage to fend of a would-be attacker with them. Maybe that works in the movies but in real life, it wouldn’t hurt to have something like the Yoogo keychain instead. Its special shape lets you securely grab it, while allowing some portions of it to stick out between your fingers. This both protects your hand in case you have to defend yourself, while inflicting a little more damage to your assailant. It’s not quite a brass knuckle, so we think its use is probably legal, but hey… we are not lawyers so make sure to know your local laws before carrying this. It’s $20 and they’ll ship worldwide.

This Knife Is A Gun

Arsenal-Gun-Knife

Options. Everything is life is about options, isn’t it? And about the choices you make given the options you have. For example, you have this mean looking blade in your hand. You could use it to stab or cut your aggressor. But you have another option: shoot! It’s not an option you normally have when wielding a blade, which is why it caught our attention. It loads six .22 caliber bullets, and is fired via a special trigger. It’s overkill, sure, but it’s pretty badass.

We don’t know much else about it, other than maybe it’s imported by Arsenal Firearms in Las Vegas and allegedly sells for $2,000. Also something or other about being made for Russian armed forces, but we can’t confirm this as fact. Still, now you know this exists.

Oh, and we would make some kind of joke about bringing a knife to a gun fight if we had any comedic talent.

Lighter Shaped Pepperspray Will Stay Incognito

By David Ponce

Using pepperspray is not as simple as you’d think. For one, when is the right time to take it out? Is that creepy guy walking behind you really after you, or is he just… walking behind you? Do you want to take your spray out right away and risk looking the fool if he then up and crosses the street? You wouldn’t feel so reluctant to take it out if it didn’t, you know, look like a self-defence tool. That’s why the above could be a good idea. It’s wearing a disguise, looking for all intents and purposes just like a lighter. But don’t go making the mistake of trying to light a cigarette with it.

Here’s where things get a little complicated. For one, it’s… $4. What kind of pepper spray are you buying for that price? And two, there happen to be a bunch of laws governing the purchase, import and ownership of something like this. All of which you’ll have to look into yourself before splurging on that.
