Yesterday, I got my Handgun magazine in the mail and read an article on the Kimber Pepper 2. If I lived in a town I would want one. They last 2 years and cost around $40. Has anyone had experience with the Pepper 2?

That's probably the last OC product I would use for SD.

For reference, I spent many years in the defense spray industry (I left the industry in 2014), and have developed, tested, trained, etc. etc. OC products of every type.

I don't know what the forum rules are regarding linking to another board, so I'll just paste my comments on that product when I was asked about it on that forum. (I did a Q&A on OC sprays there).

Thanks for the question, XXXX. I briefly mentioned it before, but now is a good time to go a little more in-depth about it.

In short, I'm not a fan of it. Here's why:

-It uses gel oc. Easily the hardest dispersion pattern to use effectively. Since it doesn't run.

-It can cause permanent damage when used at close range. Almost all civilian usage of pepper spray occurs within a 2-3 foot range. Manufacturer recommends not using it in this range.

-It has a gun-like appearance. That's not a good thing in this case.

-The "top/bottom" firing, makes it very difficult to aim (and hit the eyes, accurately)

-You only get two shots vs 10-20 (depending on brand and spray pattern) with a similarly sized aerosol canister.

There are many, many better options out there, in my opinion.
That reply is a few years old now, so I'll update it.

I do believe they no longer use a gel OC, but, in all honesty, it changes my opinion of the product very little. My experience with it wasn't very favorable. We tested target acquisition, in this case the odds of ocular saturation, and it proved to be very, very difficult to hit a moving target. If you watch any videos on the product the test subjects are always standing still. That's not a real world test as far as I'm concerned.

My 2018 opinion on that product remains the same. I'd look elsewhere.
