There has been great debate about the role of gun, gun owners, and the type of guns that should or should not be allowed to be owned, carried or used by citizens’ in this country. My only stance is that a person has the right and responsibility to defend and protect themselves and their property against anyone who is attempting to illegally cause harm or damage against them. What you choose to legally own and use is up to you, however make sure you know how to use your defense mechanism of choice correctly. Currently, Pepper Spray is legal to own and carry in all 50 United States, but do you know how to carry it so that you can use it effectively when the time comes?
The type and size of pepper spray that you should carry depends not only on the legal restrictions of where you live but also on your need, ability and comfort level. As we have discussed before Pepper Spray comes is sizes from as small as a half-ounce to a pound. For the average person the key rings model is the right one. These models are about three inches long and about an inch in diameter. Some of the next models have belt holsters and clips. If you find this size inconvenient or unworkable, even with the holster, you should at least carry the key chain model. The primary reason I recommend this model is that so long as you have your keys in hand, your pepper spray is close at hand. You need to be aware of the spray pattern that the pepper spray uses so that you do not accidentally spray yourself, and you need to be mindful of the trigger so that you do not accidentally spray it when you don’t want to.
We do not recommend you carry certain types pepper spray in your pocket or purse like you would lipstick, unless you don’t have a choice. The primary reason for this is you can’t get to it quick enough. Remember if you see that you are being targeted by a possible assailant you only have a few seconds to get your pepper spray in hand. One of the other reasons not to carry pepper spray in your pockets is that you might forget it, and just how many of you have left things in your pockets, and they have ended up in the laundry, or you changed clothes needed something you left in your clothes. In these situations we recommend that you use the pepper spray models that come with a clip. Where ever you clip it just make sure you can get to it and can use it, when the type comes.
Carrying Pepper Spray in your purse
Unlike the key chain models mentioned above larger sprays can be carried in a variety of different ways and places. Women usually carry almost everything in their purse, if they use one. I did know a female who used a wallet for her essentials. So how can you carry pepper spray in your purse so that you can get to it quickly and use it when the time comes. Easy, put it where you can get to it! This means that it should not be at the bottom of your purse mixed with your ten-dollar bill, two credit cars , lip stick and wrapped in a napkin. We recommend that for most small models, that you clip your pepper spray to the front end of the inside pocket, flap or divider. Put it where you can get to it quickly, but where it can’t be seen. However if a purse snatch grabs your purse, chances are you can’t get to it as you would like. There are perfume models that are disguised so that in certain situations, your attacker won’t know that it’s pepper spray. However, the same rules apply with this model, put it where you can get to it quickly.
Carrying Pepper Spray on your Belt.
Several Pepper spray models include a holster that allows you to carry your pepper spray on your belt. Some of the key ring models that we sell also have a clip on them so that you have the option to clip them in your purse or belt. The holster models are typically up to 4 ounce models. If your decide on using this model you need to repeatedly practice on how to carry, draw and use this model so that you can use it for the purpose it was intended for. Many experts recommend that the belt models should be carried upside down so that you can “draw” it faster.
Carrying Pepper Spray on your Key Chain.
As I mentioned above one of the most popular models of Pepper Spray are the key chain models. Whenever you carry your keys, there they are. It makes it convenient and easy to get to your pepper spray when you need it. That is so long as you have your keys in hand. What happens when you keys are in your pocket or purse? What happens when you are using your keys to open a lock? Most muggers, car jackets, or other assailants often strike at just the precise moment the door is open and your keys are in the lock. Just where is your pepper spray when you need it? Attached to your key ring! You should either purchase a key separator or break-away key chain. As always you need to me mindful of your environment, be extremely aware of who and what is going on around you as you approach the lock.
Whatever model you choose, please make sure you can get to your pepper spray quickly. Once you get your hands your pepper spray make sure you can get to the trigger and point it at your possible assailant in time. PRACTICE – PRACTICE – PRACTICE
