The Sharp Shooter Keychain: facts and benefits

Self-defense is a hot topic nowadays. In an ever-changing world, people want protection and they do not trust society, politics or government to supply it. If you are one of those persons, your security comes down to you yourself. The Sharp Shooter Keychain is a product that gives personal protection at a fair price. But what are its benefits, and how can it give you the protection you need? In this post we’ll give you the low down.

Sharp Shooter Keychain benefits

In current society it is important to have simple-to-use self-defense weapons that can be easily carried around while still offering a great level of protection. Mobility and flexibility is key, since the situations in which people find themselves threatened vary and always come unexpected. A self-defense keychain can supply security while remaining a light tool that can be carried anywhere. You can carry it around in your pocket, while it still gives you a tool that can shoot keys at an attacker with a velocity between 35 up to 150 miles an hour.

It is important to not underestimate the power of surprise. With a self-defense keychain, you have the element of surprise on your side. Since an potential attacker does not know that you have a powerful weapon in the palm of your hand (or in your pocket), this self-defense weapon is double as effective as the wide range of self-defense tools that are already available on the market.

Sharp Shooter Keychain protection

The main benefit of the self-defense keychain is that it can offer protection on both short and long range. On the short range, you can easily maneuver the keychain to deliver a quick blow to any attacker. Its build will ensure that you will not drop the chain easily, as you might do with a pepper spray can. With one quick snap of a wrist the keychain can also transform in a powerful long-range self-defense weapon, so that you are easily capable of protecting yourself from, for example, a knife attack.

The world does not get better, and you don’t want to be living in a constant state of fear. The Sharp Shooter Keychain can be ordered on http://www.bushidoproductions.com/

3 Reasons why you need a Sharp Shooter

Posted on Updated on


Click here for your 3 Reasons….You must defend yourself!!!all 6 sharp shooters (1)Have you been thinking of buying a Kubota, stun gun ,Pocket stick, spike Ninja keychain, pepper spray keychain or other keychain self defense devices?

FOR THE RECORD: The patented Sharp Shooter Keychain has 3 unique differences than all of them and this is why it is so much more effective for self defense.

PEPPER SPRAYS:

The problem with pepper spray is you may drop it if scared. You may miss hitting their eyes, and even if you do get them they still may have time to stab you before they  feel  the full effect of the spray.

On the other hand the Sharp Shooter is real hard to drop and when hit with the Sharp Shooter the feeling is instant and stops the in there tracks.

STUN GUNS:

Stun guns are only for up close in your face attacks you have to be close to the to get to your target muscle area to be effective defending yourself. The effects are not long lasting and some times they get up and come right back attacking you.

With the Sharp Shooter Keychain  you can quickly switch from a close range self defense weapon into a much longer range self defense weapon giving you the advantage of striking them from a distance or keeping them at bay.

POCKET STICKS AND KUBOTANS:

A pocket stick or Kubota is a great in close weapon and great for striking vital points, but it is limited to up close self defense and is not a great defense for a novice against a weapon  attack suck as a knife. The cheap split key rings used on them are real easy to break and wont hold up to heavy striking. This is  something they never will tell you when selling them.

The Sharp Shooter Keychain is battle ready made with heavy duty key rings, 550 test Para cord, and wont break in the heat of a attack. Some devices are using cheap straps and crappy cheap key rings that break. Don’t trust these to save your life. The Sharp Shooter is made tough and with one quick snap of the wrist or pull of the cord lock  it transforms into a long range device so you can defend against a weapon such as a knife.

SPIKED POCKET KEYCHAINS:

The  spiked key chains are for close range self defense and used to stab or strike your attacker with the pointy spikes. The problem with these type of  devices is you can’t really carry it in your pocket and it could even put a hole in you good pants or jacket pocket?

The Sharp Shooter was made small and easy to put in your pocket and wont poke holes in you pockets.

Go to http://bushidoproductions.com and see  which sharp shooter keychain may be best for you.

Deadly weapon in all 50 states

Posted on


Deadly weapon in all 50 states

A knife is classified as a deadly weapon in all 50 states in the US and also any firearm, whether loaded or unloaded. Pepper spray can be a choice but some states impose pepper spray restrictions and pepper spray only works if you hit them in the eyes or face. My suggestion is to choose a good self defense keychain. Some manufacturers have chosen to design cheaply made pocket sticks with split key rings not made to take heavy impact that may occur in a self defense situation. The answer the Sharp Shooter Self Defense Keychain a device that works great for up close attacks but with one quick snap of your wrist it become a long range device giving you the distance to protect you better from a knife or a club wielding attacker. This device is small cool looking legal to carry in all 50 states best of all it’s made battle ready and will hold up in the heat of a attack situation. The power to break coconuts and cinder blocks means it has the power to stop a attacker in his tracks. Get Yours Today!http://bushidoproductions.com/

VIPER KEYCHAIN

VIPER KEYCHAIN

When thinking of a Viper keychain you may think of Battlestar Galactica of of the Adder,Bushmaster,copperhead,water moccasin,Fer-de-lance, or the well known viper the Rattle snake. You may be thinking of a car key chain.

The Viper keychain I’m speaking of is for self defense and like the Viper this keychain is fast and powerful. The bite from a  viper snake is so powerful you would not want to stay around to try to capture the snake rather you would run for medical attention. The Viper keychain has the power to break coconuts,cinder blocks ,and much more.  Breaking coconuts is something the Viper snake can’t do. Unlike the Snake the Viper keychain appears to be harmless in fact they are a real cool looking keychain that does not look like a self defense device. It is easy to carry and fits nicely in your pocket. Feel safe be safe with the sharp shooter viper keychain the keychain that shoots!

Many women purchase their first Sharp Shooter keychain for home defense.  The question of which type of Sharp Shooter Keychain to pick can be daunting.

U.S. STATISTICS

Fact #1: 18.3 % of women in the United States have survived a completed or attempted rape. Of these, 12.3% were younger than age 12 when they were first raped, and 29.9% were between the ages of 11 and 17. (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #2: 22 million women in the United States have been raped in their lifetime. 63.84% of women who reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked since age 18 were victimized by a current or former husband, cohabiting partner, boyfriend, or date. (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #3: Less than half of domestic violence incidents are reported to police. African-American women are more likely than others to report their victimization to police Lawrence A. Greenfeld et al. (1998). (Violence by Intimates: Analysis of Data on Crimes by Current or Former Spouses, Boyfriends, and Girlfriends. Bureau of Justice Statistics Factbook. Washington DC: U.S. Department of Justice. NCJ #167237. Available from National Criminal Justice Reference Service.)

Fact #4: The FBI estimates that only 37% of all rapes are reported to the police. U.S. Justice Department statistics are even lower, with only 26% of all rapes or attempted rapes being reported to law enforcement officials.

Fact #5: Almost one-third of female homicide victims are killed by an intimate partner.(FBI, Uniform Crime Reports 2001)

Fact #6: The National College Women Sexual Victimization Study estimated that between 1 in 4 and 1 in 5 college women experience completed or attempted rape during their college years (Fisher 2000).

Fact #7: Men perpetrate the majority of violent acts against women (DeLahunta 1997).

Fact #8: Every two minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.(Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) calculation based on 2000 National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice)

Fact #9: One out of every five American women have been the victims of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. (The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #10: Factoring in unreported rapes, about 6% of rapists will ever spend a day in jail. 15 out of 16 will walk free. (Probability statistics based on US Department of Justice Statistics)

Fact #11: Almost 10% of high school students are victims of dating violence each year. (Youth Risk Behavior Survellience 2009).

Fact #12: Sexual violence and gender based violence is associated with a host of short- and long-term problems, including physical injury and illness, psychological symptoms, economic costs, and death (Lifetime Prevalence of Gender-Based Violence in Women and the Relationship with Mental Disorders and Psychosocial Function, Journal of American Medical Association 2011).

Fact #13: Rape victims often experience anxiety, guilt, nervousness, phobias, substance abuse, sleep disturbances, depression, alienation, sexual dysfunction, and aggression. They often distrust others and replay the assault in their minds, and they are at increased risk of future victimization (DeLahunta 1997).

Fact #14: According to the 2010 National Crime Victimization Survey, more than 20,000 rapes or sexual assaults occurred in 2010; 169,370 of them occurred among females and 15,020, among males (Department of Justice 2010).

Fact #15: Sexual violence victims exhibit a variety of psychological symptoms that are similar to those of victims of other types of trauma, such as war and natural disaster (National Research Council 1996). A number of long-lasting symptoms and illnesses have been associated with sexual victimization including chronic pelvic pain; premenstrual syndrome; gastrointestinal disorders; and a variety of chronic pain disorders, including headache, back pain, and facial pain (Koss 1992).Between 4% and 30% of rape victims contract sexually transmitted diseases as a result of the victimization (Resnick 1997).

Fact #16: Most female victims are raped before the age of 25, and almost half of female victims are under the age of 18. (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010).

Fact #17: In 2006, 78,000 children were sexually abused. (Child Maltreatment 2006.) Because majority of cases are not reported, it is estimated that the real number could be anywhere from 260,000-650,000 a year. (Finklehor 2008).

Fact #18: About 67.9% of rape victims are white; 11.9% are black; 14% are hispanic and 6% are of other races. (National Crime Victimization Survey, Department of Justice 2010).

Fact #19: About half of all rape victims are in the lowest third of income distribution; half are in the upper two-thirds. (Violence against Women, Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1994.)

Fact #20: According to the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey (YRBSS), a national survey of high school students, 7.4% of students had been forced to have sexual intercourse when they did not want to. Female students (10.5%) were significantly more likely than male students (4.5%) to have been forced to have sexual intercourse.
