Pepper Spray in all shapes and sizes

The nice or scary thing about pepper spray is that it come in all shapes and sizes. You can find it in something that looks like a ring, or a pen, or perfume, or you can find it in small key chain canisters or even large fire extinguisher types that are used for crowd control. Some of the more common sizes and capacities of OC pepper spray generally ranges from ½ ounce to 4 ounces although. We even carry sizes as large as 9 and 16 ounce pepper spray for home, business, auto, or security guards.

The smaller models work well and can be attached to your key ring, or that have clips that allow you to attach them to your belt, shirt or purse flap. The next common size Is the 2 ounce models that are also very effective and offer the same clipping options.

The next popular sizes are the larger 3 and 4 ounce pepper spray models. These can be carried in purses, or can be clipped for easy access. Some people keep them in holders need their front door or bed room doors. These models are usually used by law enforcement or security personnel.

The larger fire extinguisher models similar to the one seen in the UC Davis pepper spray is used for large crowd control.

The size of the pepper spray model generally determines its capacity – how much of the compound can be sprayed for a particular length of time. Other capacity indicators are the number of shots per unit and how far the pepper spray will shoot. Two of the factors are fairly flexible: the range and number of shots. As much as I desire that you can keep your assailant as far as possible, the truth is that most assaults take place at a distance of 8 feet or less. An OC pepper spray only needs to have an effective range of 6 to 9 feet. This does not mean that you don’t want to consider sprays what have a range of 10 feet or more. All things being equal we all want a spray with a large effective range, however keep in mind you need a great aim, and a great stream with the available amount of pepper spray. The greater the distance the pepper spray unit is fired from the more accurate the aim must be – which can be difficult in times of stress, particularly with stream spray.

Stream sprays require a good aim and a zig-zag motion to ensure the attackers vulnerable spots (eyes, and nose). The cone mist type sprays doesn’t require precise aiming, although it too needs to be shot directly toward the head area for the greatest effect. The fogger type sprays doesn’t need to be aimed at all, just point and shot in your attacker’s general direction.
