Not sure what you mean by storage, but pepper spray is an aerosol. Therefore, it must be kept out of direct sunlight and can't be stored above 120 F.

Fox recommends replacing cans every 3 years.

StealthyMcStealth Reviving this old thread rather than starting a new one. After reading through here I decided to buy Sabre brand pepper spray. Got the 3-IN-1 Sabre off Amazon for $6.99 then was in Bass Pro this morning and they had Sabre Red for $4.99. So I bought that too. I do want bear spray for actual bears but I will pick that up before my next camping trip. Now my Jeep has a pistol with spare magazines and extra ammo, several knives, a taser and pepper spray. My Jeep ain't afraid of anything now! LOL.

Good info. Just one discrepancy, which is using DEET. Same concept of criminal liability, unless you're camping in the woods and can justify having DEET on you. I could be wrong.

The people I have used Sabre Red on have all complied with orders afterwards, just with a lot of Lorty Jeezus', Hep Me!!!!

The little pink cutie sprays are only good for inside the car, too pusssed out for general self defense. 2 oz is the min I carry unless in NJ or NY, then I have to use watered down, small size state legal sprays.

If someone has a respiratory condition you could kill them with pepper...it is not a toy.
People with respiratory problems should think about that before doing stupid **** and getting pepper sprayed, the alternative is getting tased.

Doc_Shane Sabre Red Crossfire model, hands down get the 1.33 Capsacinoid formula (LE Strength) I use it for duty, it will light you up and get some act right in your life. Very few I have sprayed did anything but scream and do what they were instructed to afterwards.

KravMagoo This may sound dumb, but buy this type:



Sprays will wear out and not spray after a few years. Maybe even 1 year. I test fire about once a year to make sure. I've had big canisters that spray giant cones to little pocket ones. They all lost their spray and trashed. That's hundreds of dollars. This stupid PAGER one, still freaking works after like 20+ years! This was when Pagers were around, holy shiz. Inside, is 2 little canisters that looks like a CO2 cartridge for pellet guns. Hope they still makes them and the same quality. This thing sits in my car through all 4 seasons of East Coast weather too.

Last summer, I've been spraying the crap out of these hornets that have their nest somewhere under or beside my shed. They won't let me get to it and it's in a corner, hard to see due to trees, bushes, fence, etc. So I'm spraying at them as they're buzzing me, protecting their territory. I wasn't even wearing goggles, just sunglasses. Granted I'm not spraying myself directly in the face for fun, but a ton of residue and mist was dropping on and all over me. Then sprayed the foam all over the back of the shed.

After emptying 3 full bottles in about 30 minutes, there was not even the slightest hint of irritation. I didn't even need to go wash my hands nor face and just continued working on the yard.

One test spray with OC or pepper spray, and just the residue on the nozzle can cause gagging. And the mist, if you don't get away from, is way worse. While Wasp Spray even says on the can (usually), that it's "MILDLY" irritating to humans.

Confederate Grey I bought my wife the Hottest Wildfire Sticky Gel for her purse.
It's a good sized bottle and 3 million Scoville at 18%.
It is supposed to be evil, she has a stalker that I haven't been able to get yet so she's loaded for bear at the moment.. This just started and I'll nab his ass before all is said and done.. The Wildfire was highly recommended by my LE buddies..
The gel sticks and the more you rub it in the worse it gets, it will actually burn your flesh.
