Top 10 Bodyguard Gear You Couldn’t Live Without

bodyguard gearWatching Hollywood movies may have lots of impact on the way most of us think. Things might actually seem easy than they actually are in real life and this is quite a problem because it gives some people the self confidence that won’t help them anywhere. You might find that a certain bodyguard has the ability to take care of his/her clients without needing any extra “toys” or bodyguard gear and this is quite difficult if you think about it. Personal protection involves a lot of things that have to be considered so that the person who’s being protected can be entirely safe and this can be impossible if a bodyguard lacks certain tools that will aid this type of protection. True, there are many types of high tech devices out there that can ensure protection to anyone but there are those that one can’t do without and these include tools such as wireless earpieces, lightweight and portable firearms, body armour, tactical knives, handcuffs, metal detectors, stun guns, pepper spray, expandable batons and a flash light. Most of them might seem like ordinary tools that won’t have a lot of impact but yet again, only security officers know their importance. Let’s thus look at each of these pieces of bodyguard gear and how they aid in bodyguarding.

An earpiece communication device is one that is placed strategically on a bodyguard’s ear and it allows him to receive messages as well as send messages to other bodyguards who are working towards the same achievement. Nowadays these earpieces have become wireless and tinier such that bodyguards can place them in their ears without lots of people knowing that communication devices are in use. They are particularly important because of the communication services that they offer. Without communication it would be almost impossible to have a team of bodyguards that can assure you safety.

Leaving communication devices, one of the most important tools that almost all personal protection officers should have is a firearm. They vary in sizes and also in the effectiveness. There are firearms which can only be used for short ranges while others can be used for long distances. Most bodyguards always carry small and lightweight guns which will easily go unnoticed and prevent them from getting bored of having to carry heavy guns each and every time they are out there protecting someone. They thus have compact semi-automatic pistols in most cases and this comes along with a 32 calibre pocket pistol backup gun with a concealment holster. Unlike communication devices, firearms are only used when threat has been detected and if someone has opened fire already.

Body armour is also another important gear that personal protection officers should have all the time because it is rather difficult to predict whether there will be an attack on both you and the person that you are protecting. There are various types of body armour with different strengths. One should thus be aware of the type of threat that they should expect in various places. For example, for a place with a high number of robberies, (.22R; 380ACP) body armour might be enough. Basically, the numbers and letters in this specification indicate the type of bullet that the armour can protect against and the maximum speed of the bullet that it can protect one from.

Tactical knives aren’t new and in fact most civilians have them too. They are basically knives which have been carefully concealed such that it is difficult to notice that they are actually knives. They might be mistaken for things such as cigars when in reality they are knives. They have various uses to people who know how to use them. If someone has been tied up somewhere, it would be quite unprofessional to start looking for tools to untie the person. Besides using them for untying, they can also be used as protection devices in case one doesn’t have firearms. Though they are used for many things, most of the time you won’t notice them when they aren’t in use.

Unlike what you might already be thinking about, not only cops have handcuffs. You’ll find lots of security officers with them even in the mall but the only difference is that some can be used more than once while others are just to be used once. This type of handcuff thus comes with less weight which makes it portable and convenient to use. They are mostly used when culprits need to be prevented from either escaping or causing more disorder. Bodyguards should always have them just in case they have to keep a suspect in custody.

Metal detectors can be used in several places for example before entering into a building; most people are usually searched so that any metallic objects such as guns and firearms can be confiscated so as to ensure the protection of everyone. Agents and bodyguards won’t have to worry about this since they are authorised to have them. They can be used to ensure more safety by checking vehicles for any attached devices such as explosives or tracking devices. Most of the time, VIP protection involves this kind of security.

Stung guns and pepper sprays serve almost the same purpose because they sort of weaken the threat by either disrupting the threat’s nervous system so that he/she can’t move or temporarily making the threat to pass out. Pepper sprays can be used when there are several people but stun guns can only be used for one or two people at most.

Expandable batons are usually for law enforcement and since they can conveniently be kept by bodyguards, they ensure more security besides making the life of the bodyguard safer. Flash light come last because they are only important in cases where there’s not much light. Despite this fact, they are still important and they can actually be embedded in other devices such as the expandable batons or on the tactical knives.

All in all, not every tool that we’ve looked at will be required in the day to day tasks but in most cases, they will be essentially important.
