Pepper Spray

What is the most popular non-lethal self defense weapon?

The carry and use of pepper sprays has elevated tremendously over the past couple of years due to the rise in violent crimes. Law abiding citizens are acknowledging that they must depend upon devices such as these to safeguard themselves and their families’ lives. Although the media continues to talk about the rise of firearms for self defense there are many factors that have people adding pepper spray to their everyday carry choices along with or without them. You might as well use law enforcement pepper sprays.

What do you do if you can't or don't want to carry a firearm?

First, there are many places or establishments today that will not allow you to carry a firearm on their premises, or where people are banned from carrying such as school campuses or government facilities. I believe this is the most important reason to add pepper spray and why all of us here at Sheepdog Protection Group carry some form of it. Second defensive sprays are an alternative for people who are just not comfortable carrying firearms. Finally pepper spray is a product that parents can comfortably give to their high school or college age children for them to carry in order for them to protect themselves when moving around in their daily activities.

Approximately 15,000,000 Americans now carry some form of personal defense sprays. The vast majority of these happen to be OC (oleoresin capsicum) sprays. OC which comes from some from the hottest peppers on the planet is the active component in pepper spray. OC is actually an oily liquid that is insoluble in water.

What sizes do pepper sprays come in?

Pepper sprays are available in aerosol containers, some the size of a small fire extinguisher. While some are sufficiently smaller and can be placed on a keychain. You'll find pepper sprays in sizes from a ½ oz to as much as 1 lb bottles. A large number of these devices can be fired on multiple occasions and also have a range of 8 ft to 20 ft, difference based on the model and size. The size of the system generally determines its capacity. Some pepper sprays are disguised as everyday objects such as lipsticks, giving you the element of surprise. The OC liquid is spread by releasing the aerosol through a variety of spray patterns in line with the model. The 4 most widely used kinds of pepper sprays are forced cone, broken stream, fogger, and pepper gel.

What are the effects of pepper spray on skin?

If your attacker gets pepper on their body they can expect irritation and inflammation. Along with a burning sensation. Pepper spray in the eyes has similar effects, along with temporary blindness. Additionally the spray will rattle the membranes within the upper respiratory system and throat. Coughing and choking can be expected. It's a very uncomfortable feeling due to the pain and irritation.The final results expected tend to be temporary incapacitation, mostly because of limited visibility and trouble breathing. The individual sprayed is generally too focused on the blinding or painful sensation to carry on with any kind of violence toward you.

How long is the effect of pepper?

You may be wondering how long the effects of pepper spray last. An assailant should be expected to have trouble opening their eyes for 8 minutes to an hour, which provides sufficient time to flee safely. Because OC is an inflammatory agent it is effective on individuals with diminished pain receptors such as individuals intoxicated by alcohol or drugs.

If you think about having sunburn on your face or perhaps a floor burn, plus a burning sensation at the back of the mouth, or even the feeling from accidentally rubbing hot sauce in your eyes you'll be able to picture the level of discomfort that the attacker would be in. If you need to make use of your pepper spray in self-defense, make certain that you get distance between both you and your attacker if it's possible as you would like to prevent incapacitating yourself. Aim for the eyes and face, proceed by releasing a one to two second burst of spray. After spraying the attacker carefully move away but still monitor the individual if you're not able to leave the area. By monitoring the attacker you will be able to determine if they stay down while you're calling 911. Whether or not the attacker is incapacitated you would like to leave the area to seek help and call 911 from a more safe location if possible.

How long is you pepper spray good for?

Remember as an owner of pepper spray that you will want to replace your pepper spray every two years to ensure its effectiveness.
