Defense Against Crime

Pepper Spray really works

It’s National Personal Self-Defense Awareness Month and I thought I’d discuss pepper spray.

What is OC Pepper Spray All About? OC is oleoresin capsicum, which is extracted from chili peppers and is commonly called Pepper Spray. This product is the most widely sold today and the spray of choice for police since 1977. OC pepper spray is generally regarded to be the most distressing to experience, but it must be sprayed directly in the eyes or inhaled to be effective. The product is an oily liquid not very soluble in water.

Pepper spray is often overlooked as a personal protection product. Not sure why. More people often think of gun when pepper spray should actually be the first line of defense, in most situations.Pepper Spray works very well against attacking animals with sensitive noses especially dogs, and bears and cougars. Pepper spray may also have limited impact on aggressive dogs like pit bulls, Dobermans or German Shepherds. Many members of the U.S. Postal Service or law enforcement agencies has all of its mail carriers or patrol officers carry pepper spray, Why? The do it because Pepper Spray really works.

Pepper Spray has modest beginnings that are steeped in history. Anyone who has served in the military has fond remembrances of their encounter with tear gas or pepper spray as part of their basic training in the gas chamber. Police Academies today all over the country and probably in the world have their trainee’s experience what pepper spray is like.

Throughout the ages, the Chinese have been using pepper and spices to throw at their enemies for literally thousands of years. In 1864.  Germans used tear gas for the first time. Chemical agents have been around for nearly a century. If you have ever had black or red pepper get into your eyes, you know what a very unpleasant experience it is.

The non lethal personal protection products that are available to the public for their use such as steel batons, stun guns, TASERS, pepper sprays, etc. all gets plenty of free publicity mostly because they are effective in saving lives and are so effective. Pepper sprays are a favorite of women for self-defense because they are inexpensive, readily available, small and easy to carry.

Pepper Spray is legal in all 50 states, however a number of cities and states have restrictions on sizes, strengths, etc.. If you have a question, it is wise to check with you local city police just check the internet.

Pepper spray can be considered a weapon. It is strongly recommended that some training or lots of practice take place before use. Please note that pepper spray has been known to have no or little effect on people who are on drugs or drunk. Why does pepper spray stop an attacker? When pepper spray is sprayed into someone’s eyes and face, it irritates the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract (throat). Coughing and choking may be experienced. It is very uncomfortable and there is some pain associated with it. The result is temporary incapacitation, mostly due to not being able to see. It has people too preoccupied with the blinding and painful experience to even attempt to do anything violent to you.

Like all personal protection products the purpose of pepper spray is to give you time to escape or get help not injure or maim. The effects of pepper spray can last as long as 30-45 minutes giving you more than enough time to get away with no lasting damage on your attacker.

pepper spray is it.
