“It’s been a rewarding journey. Trying to create the smallest, most powerful product of its kind, we were constantly faced with engineering challenges. We’ve always been inspired by the tools and weapons used by the “super heroes”, and now it’s a reality, we have the real deal. We feel the time is right to provide better personal protection that stops the attacks through user training, and having a personal choice of non-lethal concealed carry items that fit your lifestyle.”
