WOMEN TURN TO POLICE-STRENGTH RED PEPPER SPRAY FOR SELF-PROTECTION

 STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- One snowy morning last December, in the peaceful Seattle suburb of Lynnwood, Wash., Debra Peck returned to what she thought was an empty home after taking her son to the bus stop. She had been gone only a few minutes, but as she stepped through the back door, she sensed she wasn't alone.
 As she walked through the house, she noticed someone lurking beneath her dining room table. Thinking it was just one of her son's playmates that had somehow been left behind, she went to investigate.
 But when she crouched down to get a better look, she came face-to- face with a man, not a child. He lunged toward her, wielding a knife and threatening her life. With the knife at her back, he forced Debra to an upstairs bedroom and instructed her to undress. As he prepared to blindfold her, he momentarily set down the knife. It was in that moment that Debra saw her chance.
 Clenched in her hand on her key ring was a canister of Best Defense Red Pepper Spray. She quickly spun around and sprayed him in the face. As he collapsed, she ran to safety.
 Without Best Defense Red Pepper Spray, Debra might have become one of the growing crime statistics in the United States: three out of every four women in America will be the victim of at least one crime during their lifetime. Every six minutes, a woman is raped. And violent suburban crime, according to the FBI, has increased 30 percent since 1985.
 "Women are clamoring to learn more about Best Defense Red Pepper Spray," says Paxton Quigley, an internationally recognized women's safety expert and spokesperson for Best Defense. "Most women are terribly fearful of becoming the victim of a crime, on their way to work, outdoors, even while on a date.
 Quigley's endorsement of Best Defense Red Pepper Spray is important because she has spent the past four years teaching women how to use a handgun to protect themselves. Highly trained in combat defense, Quigley has taught Geena Davis to shoot for her role in "Thelma and Louise," served as a bodyguard for Yoko Ono and other celebrities and authored the best-selling "Armed and Female."
 "Not every woman wants to carry a handgun," explains Quigley. "Best Defense is clearly the best alternative. Every woman should arm herself with Best Defense Red Pepper Spray."
 Quigley has incorporated the Best Defense Red Pepper Spray into her day-long seminar on personal protection strategies called "Women's
Empowerment for the '90s." She favors Best Defense largely because it is the same formula used by more than 4,000 law enforcement agencies across the country.
 "Now the same formula and strength red pepper spray used by police departments across the country is available to the public," says Quigley.
 One squirt in the face with Best Defense Red Pepper Spray instantaneously stops all but life-sustaining breathing, induces extreme pain and causes the eyes to close involuntarily. It also makes tissues in the nose and sinus cavity swell, causes uncontrollable coughing and forces the diaphragm to contract. The combined effect is complete incapacitation -- even on those who are under the influence of drugs and alcohol -- for up to 30 minutes. Despite this extremely adverse reaction, red pepper spray causes no permanent damage.
 Best Defense Red Pepper Spray offers the strongest concentration available (10 percent) of oleoresin capsicum, an all-natural substance derived form the oil of hot red peppers. It is the only patented non- toxic, ozone-safe, non-flammable formula on the market.
 The Best Defense Red Pepper Spray is available in three sizes and is sold with an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee at stores nationwide. To locate the nearest store, call Best Defense at 800-800-1011.
