Concealed carry has exploded so much in popularity that even traditional anti-gun bastions like Chicago have to acknowledge that a person has a right to conceal carry.
Now, guns are typically the most concealed weapon for obvious reasons; they are the great equalizer, but it’s good to have alternative options as well. Concealed means concealed, and there are both social and tactical reasons for concealing a weapon. The social are important, but not important for this post.
Tactically, the one concealing a weapon has the element of surprise, and the element of surprise is a true force multiplier. When an attacker chooses a victim he’s assuming they are unarmed and will be easy picking. I doubt any attacker sees someone and thinks he or she looks like a good fight.
PS Products Cell Phone Stun Gun
The cell phone stun gun is an extremely popular method of carrying a weapon. Using the phone-like case, the weapon can be carried openly on the hip. This is of great aid to women whose professional attire is not often capable of carrying concealed weapons.
Openly carrying a weapon that’s disguised is still concealed in my book. Even if you already carry a cell phone there are plenty of people who have a work and a personal cell phone so it won’t draw attention.
The PS Products Stun gun cell phone is lightweight, and runs off of the powerful but small 123 batteries. Oh it also packs a million volts per shock. It’s plenty powerful to stun an attacker into submission and make them regret their decision.
Cold Steel Honey Comb
This is an extremely interesting design from renowned knife maker Cold Steel. Not exactly a knife, and not exactly made from any kind of steel, this little weapon is still fearsome. The Cold Steel Honeycomb is made from an ultra-modern and very tough polypropylene polymer.
This polymer is found in military equipment across the world. The dagger fits into a hair brush top that allows it to disappear without a second thought. The polymer is tough enough to do solid damage to an attacker. Keep in mind this is purely a stabbing weapon though; the polymer isn’t sharp enough to slash effectively.
5.11 Tactical Double Duty
The self-defense pens of a decade ago were advertised in tiny little black and white ads in the back of Shotgun News. These days, the tactical pen is quite popular with military and law enforcement.
The tactical pen is designed to a premium writing instrument and to also work in the toughest environments out there. The Double Duty by 5.11 Tactical is a last ditch weapon.
The pen is made from a heavy duty metal that offers some good penetrating ability. It won’t matter if you’re writing a check or perforating a bad guy; you won’t be disappointed with the Double Duty.
Sabre Red Spitfire
Now when it comes to Mace and Pepper sprays, there are tons and tons of different options out there for concealed carry. None, however, are as capable of concealment as the Sabre Red Spitfire series. Designed to look like a key fob, the Spitfire sprays OC with impressive force. This micro OC sprayer can cause some serious hurt.
The Spitfire is tiny; it doesn’t even look like a weapon. In that dark parking lot when you already have your keys out, now you can have a powerful weapon with you as well. The Spitfire is a single shot kind of weapon, but it’s plenty powerful to change an aggressive mind.
Desantis Pocket Shot
The Desantis Pocket shot isn’t a weapon, but a method of carrying. The pocket shot holster is designed to be worn in the back pocket and resemble a wallet. The weapon is actually capable of being fired from inside the holster. Imagine the look on a mugger’s face when he wants your wallet; it’s almost like he’s asking you to draw your gun.
The pocket shot is made from a nice, fine leather that protects your gun, and remains comfortable in your back pocket, especially if you’re sitting on it all day. The pocket shot is available for most of the popular concealed handguns.
