stylish and foolish

Consider this...
"Orange whistles are garish and weapons can easily be turned against you. Attackers rarely strike indiscriminately; they look for an easy target. A woman who projects confidence and direction is less likely to be targeted. The Subtle Safety Ring provides an at-hand reminder for the wearer to consider her personal safely and make choices that will avoid dangerous situations."
and this...
"To give the wearer confidence on a dark walk home, the aggressive point of the ring can be rotated outward so that the ring replaces the common practice of a woman placing her keys between her fingers."
So, before this idiocy continues, allow me to clarify something.


Simple concept, no?

What?

No nail polish today?

Xavier said...

Yep.

Okay, I looked to see what it cost. Go with the pistol, even when the barrel shows and the outline prints, no one really expects you to get it out and shoot them... but then they aren't the smartest villains in the village. Darwin and Gravity Rules!

I have a present for you.

Hint: it is a self defense tool that you can take anywhere (even on an airplane).

If you go to another Indy blog meet please post a heads up.

Breda,

Where did the "defense ring" come from? That is not one of Grossman's ideas, is it? Somehow that would depress me.

One of these days that picture will have a Colt M1911A1 listed as "weapon" and the Bersa, mounted on a ring, as "jewlery"!

;^)

Going well armed is NEVER out of style...

"A woman who projects confidence and direction is less likely to be targeted."

That is about the only thing I agree with in regards to that ad for the ring. Except the simple act of wearing jewelry does not scream confidence.

You want confidence and jewelry? Carry a .45ACP (confidence) and use one of the spent casings from target practice as a necklace (jewelry that sends a nice message).

They ask USD 78.00 for that?!

Better save up a little more, then buy a used wheelgun. Only three or four times as expensive, but hundreds of times more effective.

I agree, it's jewelry not a weapon. But it's still kinda cool but not for $78.

Wai said...

What is one going to do with a ring in self-defense; reach out and touch someone??

Screw that. Why would I want to even touch street scum like that?

Now, with a gun, one could really reach out and touch someone, with extreme prejudice.

It's worse than useless.

Unless the ring has a poisoned dart cutting edge I can't possibly see it as any use - the whole stupid "keys in the fingers" gambit is just going to end up with broken fingers.

Adam said...

Did you happen to read their disclaimer on the same page? I quote: "jewelry is not intended to be used as a weapon or as an aggressive device"

LMAO...so buy this to catch the fool's eyes, while you're busy pulling your pistol with the other hand I guess...

I think this bad for a person on blood thinners...

Breda, that's HARDLY just jewelry! That there is a ninja talisman defense ring with the power to steal souls. The other thing....that's just a bug gun, what good could THAT do? Behold the power of the NTDRWTPRSS (see above), it can tie together the shoelaces of any criminal....and if they're wearing loafers.....oil slick.


That's all. Guns? Phooey, NTDRWTPRSS = LIVE SAVER!
