A firearm is the best self-defense tool a person can carry. Except when it isn’t. The first and most obvious reason a firearm can’t get you out of a jam: you don’t have it on you. Despite gun rights advocates’ best efforts there are lots of “gun-free zones.” Places where carrying a gun can lead to the complete, lifelong loss of gun rights. Hospitals, schools, airplanes, the post office, and other government buildings, etc. What then? Situational awareness will only get you so far. Escape from a potentially deadly threat may not be possible. Make the jump for a press release on an ingenious new product [above, not endorsed by TTAG] that could provide an effective alternative, even on an airplane. Meanwhile and in any case, what’s your plan B? . . .
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- When it comes to personal protection, why not be proactive?
The ultimate concealed self-defense tool from FAB Defense, the Gotcha Hat can go with you where other weapons are prohibited. The less-lethal self-defense tool is hidden in plain sight adding confidence to any individual wearing the hat under any set of circumstances.
The tool is made of MIL-SPEC reinforced polymer composite, so it won’t trigger metal detectors and is mounted into the brim of a stylish hat so your attacker will never see it coming.
Martial arts experts Dov Granchrow and Yaron Hanover designed the Gotcha hat so that individuals, even when wearing little clothing (such as shorts or swimsuits), would never be caught empty-handed.
The Gotcha can be drawn easily from the holding mount within the brim of the hat in a non-threatening motion, which will catch your attacker off guard. Not only will users confidently defend themselves, they’ll have the last word: Gotcha. The personal-defense tool enables quick pressure point standoff as well as restraining and disarming techniques.
The comfortable baseball-style hat is available in four colors, black, coyote tan, dark earth (brown) and OD green. The front of the hat can be personalized with interchangeable Velcro patches.
