Pepper Spray

1. Defense sprays are legal in all states. However there are several states that have restrictions on the size you are allowed to carry, or the percentage of OC in the formulation. Some states also have restrictions on where or from whom you can purchase them. If you have any doubt as to whether your state has restrictions make sure to check local laws. 2. Although pepper spray is nonlethal, it can and usually does disable an assailant. The purpose of carrying and using it is to give you time to get away from a dangerous situation. 3. Studies have shown that defense sprays are at least 86% effective. However, newer formulations with higher percentages of OC and higher Scoville Heat Unit ratings have a higher efficacy rate. 4. Most key chain pepper sprays are stream formulations. This allows the spray to go further and does not require precise aim. It also makes it more susceptible to blowback. If you live in an area with normally windy conditions keep that in mind. You may want to obtain one with a gel formulation. 5. The distance a spray can shoot varies according to the volume in the container and the type of formulation. Most can shoot a minimum of 8 feet to a maximum of up to 30 feet. Choose the type of spray according to where you will use it. A small key chain defense spray is adequate for portable self-defense. If you are planning to use it for home defense then choose a larger magnum size model. 6. Pepper spray has an expiration date. While they can last up to four years is best to replace them after two years. After the expiration date the OC, or active ingredient, will remain hot, but the propellant will break down. 7. Most pepper sprays have some type of safety mechanism. Get familiar with yours before a possible crisis situation. 8. Defense sprays range in price from an average of $10 for a portable key chain model to approximately $65 for a magnum sized or pepper spray gun. Keep in mind that not all sprays are created equal. Make sure to buy one from a reliable manufacturer. 9. Pepper sprays should be stored in a cool dry place whenever possible. If it is left in a hot location for too long it may explode. 10. Defense sprays are not for women only. There is nothing feminine about carrying pepper spray for self-defense. This is why most law enforcement officers carry it as a non-lethal form of compliance.
