SALT, The Pepper Spray Gun


Whichever side of the gun ownership debate you stand on, it would be hard to argue against the fact that not every dangerous situation needs to be resolved in a lethal manner. Whether it’s drunk neighbours trying to enter the wrong house, unarmed robbers trying to get into your car, or shitfaced hooligans looking for a fight, these are situations you might want to deal with proportionally and not lethally. The SALT Pepper Spray gun is loaded with rounds filled with a powdered pepper spray that creates a chemical cloud upon impact, incapacitating anyone in the vicinity. With a range of 150 feet, compared to a traditional pepper spray’s 6 foot range, the SALT lets you maintain a safe distance between yourself and your threat. With a muzzle velocity of 320 feet per second, even without the chemical irritant, the impact from each round is like being hit with a 50mph fastball. A 7 round magazine lets you fire several shots in quick succession, overwhelming your subject with a painful barrage that is sure to make them turn around in no time, and leaving you free of the hassle of undergoing an investigation for your use of a firearm. It’s $389, and each self-defense kit comes with 1 pepper spray gun, 10 pepper spray rounds, 10 practice rounds, 1 magazine (7-round), 2 co2 cylinders, 1 lockable case (lock not included), 1 easy to follow user manual.

The Pointie Is A Sharpie For Stabbing


Ok, don’t go around stabbing anyone, yeah? But if you have to carry a stabbing tool of some kind, for some reason, the Pointie is just about the sneakiest of them all. At first glance it looks just like a regular Sharpie, but when you take the cap off you reveal a solid 17-4 stainless steel point CNC machined and hardened to condition H900. We don’t know what that means but it sounds impressive and we suppose it’s got something to do with how hard, and how corrosion resistant it is. And it’s not just the point; the entire length is one solid block of steel simply surrounded by a plastic body. The tips come in two obvious “dagger style” shapes, and one even more incognito Sharpie-look-alike that keeps up the charade even with the cap off. They’ll cost you a $25 pledge, for a delivery in April of this year.

Stun Gun iPhone Case Keeps You Safe In Dark Alleys


There’s a definite deterring element to seeing and hearing the spark of a stun gun; something about it screams instant pain, and rightfully so. So we’re intrigued by the Sun Gun Case by Yellow Jacket. This particular one is made for the iPhone 5/5S and is 30% more powerful than the iPhone 4/4S model. This means that at the press of two buttons (for safety reasons it’s not just one) you’ll generate a spark that’s 950,000V across, and which can cause a good amount of discomfort on any would-be assailants. And when it’s not sparking electricity across two electrodes, the case doubles as, well, a case for your phone. Sure, it’s likely a little bulkier than your slimmer, non-stun-gun cases, but that’s a small price to pay to be able to carry a serious self-defense tool. It’s $149.

Self Defense Night Stand Provides All-Around Bedside Protection

Self Defense Night Stand

It’s important to have protection by your bedside. Not that kind of protection, in case that’s what you’re thinking. What I mean is protection for physical attacks from burglars who want to rob you dry when you’re at your most defenseless. You could get a gun, a stun gun, or stock up your bedside drawer with pepper spray.

Or you can skip the bullets and go for brute force with the Self Defense Night Stand. It’s a bedside table where the base is actually a baseball bat, and where the flat surface is actually a shield. It’s a regular old bedside table the rest of the time when all is well and good.

The way I see it, this dual-purpose table is like a cross between a novelty and something that you can actually use. While the shield might be sufficient when your attacker is only armed with a knife, you might need more than just wood to defend against a gun.

Your Flashlight, Now With 100% More Bat


Strange noise in the middle of the night got you scared? There’s a bunch of things you could do. If you’re not the shoot first and ask questions later kind of person, these might include grabbing a baseball bat and exploring. How about a baseball bat with an integrated flashlight? It makes sense to think that if it’s the middle of the night and you’re terrified, you may not think to turn the lights on. Or maybe there’s a power outage. Or whatever… We can conceive of a bunch of situations where you’d want something like this. It has a light output of 200 lumens, and even a strobe function that could disorientate someone whose eyes have accustomed to the dark. And at $30, it’s a bargain.

Manticuda Knife Is Created With Some Serious Cutting In Mind

It’s hard to look at the Manticuda and think that it was created with anything other than killing in mind. Featuring a pistol grip which allows you to hold it in a more natural fashion, its forward thrusts will carry more impact as they are aligned with the forearm axis and leave the wrist straight. In other words, you can punch-stab. The blade itself

features a wide blade design to create large, gaping (i.e. noticeable) wounds to quickly disable someone, as in a weapon retention engagement. The double-edges give the knife twice the cutting perimeter/potential with no unusable/wasted space on the blade periphery. Blade cutouts reduce weight and serves various utility functions such as a Nail Puller, Bottle Opener, or other prying tasks.

There’s an argument to be made about self-defense, and we suppose the Manticuda could scare would-be assailants away. And it would definitely do more than disable them if you end up having to use it. Now, we don’t condone violence nor are we in the business of promoting products intended for killing. But we also believe in an adult’s ability to make his own decisions and carry something as badass as the Manticuda without going around maiming people.

It’s $275.
