Spring Assisted Tactical Knives

A knife, besides being a handy tool, is a great weapon and in close quarter situations can be more lethal than a gun.  To be effective as a weapon, a knife must be able to be quickly brought into action.  Fixed blade knives can be awkward to carry, difficult to conceal and are often illegal.  Pocket knives require two hands to open and usually don't lock in place.  Switchblades and gravity knives lock open in a split second, require only one hand but can be illegal.  Spring assisted opening knives lock open just as fast as switchblades and are legal to carry concealed in Colorado, no permit required (if the blade is not over 3.5 inches in length).

Pepper Spray  / Four Pack     17% Oleoresin Capsicum
Pepper spray enables you to defend yourself while keeping a safe distance from an attacker. 
A one second burst to the face will cause temporary blindness, choking, coughing and nausea bringing the attacker to his knees.
The active ingredient in the spray is Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), commonly referred to as red pepper.  When considering which pepper spray is the most effective, one must consider the percentage of pepper being used and the heat rating of that pepper (measured in Scovill Heat Units or S.H.U.).  All of our pepper sprays are two million S.H.U., the hottest, most powerful in the world.  The potency of this spray enabled it to bring down even the most aggressive assailants.  This model has been a best seller because a person is most vulnerable to attack when getting in or out of their car.  With the spray attached to your key ring you'll be able to quickly defend yourself without having to waste time looking through your purse or pocket.

* Perhaps one for pocket or purse, one for each car and one near the front door

* A perfect gift for a spouse, significant other, older children or anyone whose safety you're concerned with.

* Chemical does not expire or degrade over time.

These normally sell for $9.95 each.  With the four pack you receive a 25% discount so you cost is less than $7.47 each.
                                                  Note:  Not legal in Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, Wisconsin

                            QuickClot Dressing

QuikClot products have been proven in the toughest conditions on battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.  QuikClot is a hemostatic agent which activates in contact with blood, inducing cascade clotting.  Formulated into beads enclosed in a porous surgical hemostatic sponge.  Introduced into a wound, the sponge takes the shape of the injury, conforms to the wound and rapidly stops even the most severe venous and arterial bleeding and can be removed without fear of disturbing the strong, stable clot that has been formed.  QuikClot products are safe and contain no animal or human proteins.  They are simple and easy to use, yet extremely effective in controlling severe bleeding, keeping the patients alive until they can be transported to a hospital or trauma center.  

QuikClot products are a small investment that can mean the difference between life and death.

Comment:  QuikClot is a must have item!  I keep a pack in my range bag, medicine cabinet and a Trauma Pack in my car.
If you're ever involved in a serious automobile accident and you or a loved one is gushing blood from a wound, how much would this be worth to you?           jp
