  • So why should I carry pepper spray?

    Why use pepper spray?

    So I have received this question quite a few times and have seen it pop up around the internet on multiple occasions. The first thing that comes to my mind everytime I see this is “why not”. Many argue that a person does not need to carry pepper spray because people lose it in their purse. People forget it is a tool that you must familiarize yourself with and ensure that you know how to access and use in a time of need. Due to many people not using it properly these statements are used as generalizations.

    So I’ll just start by saying that pepper spray is not the end all be all solution of self defense, but it is another tool you can add to the tool box. Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent which when sprayed to the face of an attacker will cause inflammation and watering of the eyes of the would be attacker while causing them trouble breathing. This is what makes pepper spray effective and is why it should be considered as something to add to your defense kit.

    The reality of what happens and what many people do with their pepper spray daily that has made the generalizations possible is something we are hoping to help change. People buy a pepper spray and then let it get shuffled around in their purse until it is at the bottom and they forget about it, or they have the same spray on a keychain for five years because they never needed it and did not realize it should be replaced. The problem with this mentality is that just because people do not care for it like they should does not mean that people should stop carrying them. We need to do a better job of getting people to understand how to care for this product and to make sure they are in a position where they can use it if need be.

    We here at SPG look at pepper spray like car insurance. We pay for it when necessary, but in reality hope that we never have to use it. Unlike car insurance pepper spray is inexpensive making it easy to test the product out and ensure that you know how to effectively use it. Do not worry about your friends thinking you are crazy because you took your pepper spray out of your purse before you walked into that dark parking lot, or disconnected it from your keychain as you left the downtown bar to walk to your car. The reality is these are the steps that help you implement more situational awareness into your daily life and to make sure you are in a position to better defend yourself if necessary.

    We hear people say all the time that they do not need pepper spray because they carry a firearm, or they would never let anyone that close to them in a situation to use a pepper spray, but in doing so they all overlook the reality, which is everyone is different and every situation is different. In today’s society there are many establishments that do not allow firearms in their facilities, and people are not going to quit their job over these policies, or risk heavy penalties for breaking the law such as carrying into a government facility.

    There are also situations where even those of us that train at a high level regularly can end up in where things do not go as planned. Unless someone chooses to live under a rock the rest of their lives and not spend any time being social then all we can do is plan and implement ways that we can reduce the risk in our everyday lives. Pepper spray can come in sizes as small as a pepper spray keychain or one that can also fit easily in your pocket making it a very convenient add on. By carrying pepper spray and taking time to learn how to use it if necessary and making sure that it is replaced when necessary then you are on the right track.

  • Attempted Abduction

    We know that we can never take a moment off from our situational awareness. This is even more so the case when approached by strangers. Such was the case in this story even though she was able to escape there are still some lessons to remember.

    1: Remember that even if you choose to be helpful and give direction, you dont have to get close to the vehicle. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. This give you space to get away if you start to feel uncomfortable and an attacker cannot grab you from inside of the vehicle.

    2: Make sure in the event of dealing with larger vehicles especially that you position yourself in such a way to have a clear view of the corners of the vehicle and your surroundings in case a second attacker tries to approach you.

    These types of situations are why we carry wildfire pepper spray and runt stun guns which are great assets.

    If you have any questions about self defense or situational awareness give us a call or check out our website for all of your product needs.

  • How does an FFL transfer work?

    Are you still doing FFL transfers?

    The short answer is yes we are still doing FFL transfers for firearms. We have now included that information on the website also so that you do not have to call to in order to find out anymore. Yes we know we should have added it sooner, but it is there now and sorry for the inconvenience. As of now the prices are remaining the same included the discount that is in place for Military and first responders. At some point there could be a price increase, but we will make sure that is update in the event of a change. If you have any questions after reading through through the FFL to FFL transfer information page give us a call and we will be happy to help you out.

    We are also excited to announce that thanks to the Ohio and ATF agreement we will be able to move forward with using Ohio CCW identification issued on or after March 23, 2015 for Ohio CCW holders in place of the NICS check. If you have questions regarding this feel free to give us a call. As always we look forward to working you all.

    Over the past few weeks I have heard about a lot of different property crimes taking place such as thefts, break-ins, snatch/grabs at residences and in public areas.

    I know with all of the chaos of the season people tend to become more relaxed about there Situational Awareness, but these times are as important as any to stay vigilant. So we at Sheepdog Protection Group put some safety tips together to remember.

    • Material goods that can be sold or traded
    • People that are too involved in their lives to observe their surroundings

    Shopping and Parking Areas

    • Keep purses and wallets secured on or against your body (Not in shopping carts)
    • Walk in groups if possible or try to follow others headed your direction
    • Make multiple trips if needed but don’t load your arms and hands with shopping bags - draws attention and makes it difficult to take action

    • Have your keys in hand before exiting when headed to your home or car
    • If the situation feels wrong go back into the store or your car – trust your gut
