The Need for Personal Protection Products

By: Michael Gravette

Hard to believe but Mr. Whipple is gone. I don't know his real name. I mean I heard it, but it just didn't register because Mr. Whipple is always going to be Mr. Whipple in my mind.

He made over 500 appearances on TV, and in movies. I don't remember a single one. But I'll never forget Mr. Whipple. There were 40 plus versions of the Charmin commercial over the years with the same tag line, "Please don't squeeze the Charmin." Mr. Whipple looked the same in every one, and we know the commercials worked because they ran for forty years. Forty years! Only something really special runs that long.

I've been selling personal protection products now for over twenty years, a little more than half the time Mr. Whipple ruled the toilet paper world. And the need for these products rises each and every day. Some days I get really hoarse talking to the scores of folks who call in with their testimony about how pepper spray or a stun gun saved their life, or got them out of a very dicey situation.

That's not even mentioning the assaults and muggings stopped by personal alarms. Or burglaries and breakins stopped by house alarms.

Personal protection or personal security, whatever you want to call it, no longer is something you can choose to do or ignore. If you choose not to defend yourself or your family in today's world, you a going to be in a heap of trouble. Skells don't steal cars in the middle of the night anymore, the pull you out of your car in broad daylight at gun point.

A simple personal alarm can stop this kind of thing from happening. A stun gun or pepper spray can knock a skell down in a heartbeat. Don't get caught short.

If you're prepared, you'll never be surprised.
