Pepper spray recommendations
Anyone have a pepper spray recommendation? Every now and then I go into town and I would like to add pepper spray as one of my self defense options. Are some brands better, stronger, and/or more reliable?

Anyone ever make a smoke bomb with ghost pepper in it? If so, what is best way of putting pepper in it while making sure you get max result?

"Paint Balls" are made with liquid OC and UV dye marker in them for riot control use.

Very effective!

I can't recommend a specific brand, but get one that has one of those little bead chains. Hook it to your purse handle so the canister can be found without looking for it in your purse. These chains break easy, and that's the point. You can jerk it loose in a jiffy if needed.

I also like the kind with dye in it. It sprays the bad guy with pink, blue or green dye all over that takes several days of washing to get off. Makes it easier to identify who police are looking for.

Bear Spray. I bought some so I have a non-lethal response if someone won't leave when I tell them. It will shoot much longer than personal defense sprays. I think I need another can or two.

Fox Labs is what we use. And I can say from experience its some wicked stuff

My department issues Sabre. It's pretty effective stuff.

Cold Steel Inferno

While it's great for home defense, its kinda hard to conceal it unless your state allows you to open carry it and you don't mind doing it.

Bear spray covers a lot more area when sprayed then any other pepper spray.

Yeah but to my knowledge they aren't very concealable.

Depends on what you want to do with it. I want to have it in hand when I meet folks at the gate. And I want to have someone behind me with a shotgun. I expect that there will be some who refuse to leave when told. I would prefer to hose them down with bear spray instead of having to choose between deadly force or giving in.

Fox 5.3 or Defense Technology in a stream or foam spray. Avoid the cone.

Useing Pepper Spray
Get a good quality Pepper spray.

Always make sure the wind is not blowing in your face.

Aim at the center of your assailant's chest and raise your hand up as you spray.
This is to insure you hit him in the face. It is impossible to dodge or duck if you do it this way.

Use the opportunity to escape. If you don't, you will need to be able to fight and he is going to have it all over him and get it all over you.

If you get it in your face or eyes , Do not Rub your face !

Rinse your face and eyes with cold water by pouring it over the eyes face or other affected area.
