How You Can Pick out Pepper Spray

Defense spray is likewise known as OC, short for its chemical name Oleoresin Capsicum. One of the best general-purpose self-defense tools previously made, a lot of police in the US carry it. Many years of street-use by law enforcement have established it effective and safe.

What does self defense spray do to somebody? It inflames the skin and mucus membranes of the eyes, nose, throat and mouth. It brings about extreme pain. It makes anybody sprayed in the face shut their eyes, cry cough as if chocking, and be struggling to speak. It makes them feel that they can’t inhale and exhale, though they really can. The effects can last from around 15 minutes for breathlessness to over an hour for the skin feeling of burning.

One can find a large number of different sprays on the market. To find the right one for you, consider: OC concentration, Schoville rating, canister size, and spray delivery system. Oh, sure, and price.

Police pepper spray is usually in the 5-10% range. Higher percentage of OC might actually not be really as good as the lower ones, because it is more difficult for the larger quantity of pepper to atomize in the spray. Also, above about 10%, having more OC in the can doesn’t make it work quicker, and doesn’t harm the opponent more; it just makes the effects last longer than 60 minutes. Since you won’t require practically that much time to go away and call for help, a product in the 5-10% range is very appropriate, and cheaper.

Next think about the hotness rating, which is measured in SHUs (Schoville Heat Units). Numerous brands don’t make this rating obvious, but you can find out by contacting the company. The most suitable range is around 2 million or more. Again, a whole lot greater is not better; sprays inside the range of 15 million SHUs have been known to result in eye damage as soon as dispersed at close range.

Another important thought is the can size. If you have a small one, built to fit on a keychain (bottom diameter about dime size), it might not have adequate oomph to properly resolve your problem, especially if you are assaulted by 2 or 3 people. A 2 oz can (bottom about quarter size) is way better. It still fits effortlessly in your hand and in most pockets, but it isn’t so likely to fizzle out when you need it most.

Be wary of products that mix OC with some other defensive chemical; those might result in eye injury.

Purchase pepper spray at police supply shops, gun shops, and retailers that specialize in safety products. There are also a great many Internet sources. Cost is about $20, low enough to take into account obtaining two or more, one to have in your coat pocket or purse, another to keep at home.

Some of the major brands are Pepper Shot, Wildfire, Mace The 2 oz Pepper Shot Pepper Spray Stream2 oz Pepper Shot Pepper Spray Stream is a 10% pepper spray rated at 2 million scoville heat units and made with a very fine grain which is far better than the coarser grains of most other pepper sprays. Apart from causing an assailant pain, Pepper Shot swells the mucous membranes, which makes breathing challenging, and swells the veins in the eyes, causing the eyes to close. These effects can last around 45 minutes and cause no long term damage.

Local regulations differ, thus ask a reliable source what laws you must obey. For instance, Massachusetts used to need a license, but as of January 2015, a license is no longer required. Some states enforce limits on the OC concentration, or age minimums on purchase.
