One of the most common questions we get is, “…why should I carry a stun gun over other self-defense products?” Quite honestly, that is a great question. To adequately answer that question we have to first consider some general concepts in personal self-defense.
If you start with the premise that you are searching for one single defensive weapon or precept that fits all potential defensive scenarios, you will find that such a weapon does not exist. Defensive scenarios vary and are based on your environmental surroundings, the general population you find yourself in, your own physical capabilities (or limitations), your personal experience or training and the motivation behind the attack itself.
As an example, a handgun is woefully inadequate if you are being fired upon by a rifle from a distance. Just as a rifle may be inefficient to try and defend oneself with in an elevator. Similarly, a TASER® may not be as effective a defensive tool if you are literally grabbed from behind in a choke hold as a Stun Gun. For that reason, it is important to realize that defensive tools are like any other tool. While you can use a wrench as a hammer… specific tools work best when applied to the right job!
Most self-defense experts will agree on certain concepts. If confronted with a potential attack, do everything you can to avoid being drawn into a physical altercation. Try and talk yourself out of trouble, signal or call for help from security personnel or law enforcement or flee if possible.
If a physical altercation is unavoidable, don’t fight fair, strike hard and strike first if possible. Mount a withering assault to blunt the attackers own offensive actions and don’t quit until you have the upper hand and can extract yourself from the situation. Most of the techniques you will use in a fight are based on your personal experience/ training and the physical condition you are currently in.
Overwhelmingly, 86% of victims of a violent attack admit that they wish they had some type of weapon at their disposal to help thwart the physical assault they had endured. Of that group, 97% state they would have deployed such a weapon had they had one in their possession at the time of their assault.
Most physical assaults do not start like they do in the movies. In most cases, unless you are the person who initiates some stupid action that draws such a confrontation to you…they are sudden and unexpected. This means that if you are one of the 86% of victims who wished they had a defensive tool at hand during an attack…it better already be in your hands or close at hand or you will most likely never get to it.
Pepper spray or a tactical flashlight in your purse or briefcase may as well be sitting on your nightstand by your bed during a sudden confrontation in an elevator or stairwell. An expandable baton that needs to be opened or a handgun in an ankle holster when you are grabbed from behind in a choke hold may remain untouched during such a violent onslaught. Remember, successfully defending oneself could come down to access to the tool and intuitive deployment of it against your attacker.
Yellow Jacket Stun Gun Advantages
Tactical deployment of the Yellow Jacket Smartphone Stun Gun Case are worthy of consideration when you are trying to decide if such a defensive tool is right for you. Below are some of the advantages of a YJ Stun Gun:
- The Yellow Jacket is discreet and natural to carry in hand. It draws no suspicion or attention while carrying it in your hand. This is one of the golden rules of carrying a defensive weapon. It must be accessible and deployable at a moment’s notice.
- It affords the carrier the ultimate element of surprise. When it is activated, it is completely unexpected by the attacker. This “ambush effect,” caused by deploying such a defensive tool “out of nowhere,” increases its effectiveness exponentially.
- The Yellow Jacket Smartphone Stun Gun Case is intuitive to use. The trigger to discharge the unit is ambidextrous as most people are comfortable with the feel of their mobile phone always being in their hand…using the Yellow Jacket becomes “second nature.”
- A Stun Gun does not need to be reloaded to discharge multiple times. Whether this is against the same attacker or against multiple attackers. All one must do is continue to depress the trigger each time a discharge is needed.
- Whether you are grabbed from the front or from behind, a Stun Gun only need to come into contact with part of the attacker’s body. While we recommend specific “target points,” to concentrate the electrical discharge against an attacker, a Stun Gun does not require a great deal of training or precision to deploy.
- The Yellow Jacket Smartphone Stun Gun Case is an ideal “close-quarters weapon.” Whether being attacked inside your car, pulled into an alley or grabbed on a crowded subway, this is a defensive tool that exploits the attacker’s predisposition to get close to their victim. If they can touch you….you can stun them!
- The Yellow Jacket Stun Gun is intimidating to an attacker. It can even be used to protect you against an aggressive canine adversary.
