Things to Consider Before Buying Pepper Spray

Pepper spray can be a fantastic self-defense tool to have, whether you love to pepper-sprayjog protection while walking on campus or to a parking garage at work. Pepper spray is a legal non-lethal way to keep yourself safe! However, before you run out to the Quickie-Mart or go online to PepperSprayWorld.com and buy their ultra super strong pepper spray there are a few things you need to consider. Many of these are addressed in our FREE E-Book.Things you need to know about Pepper Spray

What’s Kind of Pepper Spray Legal In Your State?
In one of the previous post, we discussed various pepper spray laws. First, know that, Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states but some states/cities have restrictions on strength and sizes. It is important you know what is legal where you live before making your purchase. For example, in New York residents can only buy pepper spray from licensed Firearms Dealers or licensed Pharmacists in the state, you cannot buy them online and have the pepper spray shipped to you. Most states don’t have that restrictions and you can buy pepper spray online and have it shipped to you.

Wisconsin restricts residents can only use pepper sprays with only pepper included (no tear gas, no UV dye and no mixed sprays allowed). Residents can only use a 10% solution or less and can only have cans that contain between 15-16 grams (or 2oz or smaller). There are additional pepper spray requirements.

What Size Pepper Spray Is Best For You?
Now that you know what kind of Pepper Spray you can purchase where you live. Now SWPepper_Spray_Productsconsider what size, type and style. The size of the pepper spray determines how much of the chemical can be dispensed and for how long. For example, the ½ size has less than the 3 oz, size.

Smaller pepper spray canisters like key chain Pepper spray models or pen models are great for those who want to have it readily available. This is idea for joggers or college students or those who want to protect themselves while on the go.

Those who buy medium sized sprays (2 oz.) can often keep their canister in their bag or on a in a holster on their belt. Most people who buy 4 ounce are larger and meant for wearing with a belt holster.

What Dangers Are You Trying to Protect Yourself From?
There are several types of pepper spray, depending on what you are protecting yourself from. If protecting yourself from a human assailant, most pepper spray that isn’t designed for use against animals. If protecting yourself from an animal, dog or bear, be sure to get the corresponding pepper spray. Different sprays are created for different purposes, so think about what you need protection from before making a purchase.

How Will You Want to Carry Your Pepper Spray?
So you know what is legal where you live. You know what size and style of pepper spray you want to buy. How are you going to carry it so that it is accessible when you need it.  Having it in your purse or in your desk drawer will not do you any good if you have to use it. Key Chain models are great if you are the type of person who walks with their keys in their hand. If you keep your keys in your purse. If you would rather carry it ON your purse, pick a clip type product appropriate for your purse.  Various holsters are available for the larger size pepper sprays (4 oz and above) for waistband or belt attachment.

Do You Know How To Safely Use Pepper Spray?

Having legal pepper spray that is easy for you to use is one thing. Actually knowing how to effectively use your pepper spray is another. Educate yourself (There is a section in our free e-book on how to spray) on the effects of pepper spray, how to test it, how to use it and what to do if you are accidentally exposed to the spray.  Most important PRACTICE pulling it our and using it… seconds count!

September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM) and people  on your

Prevention is Possible

Prevention is Possible

campus is thinking about campus safety – the media, parents, students, and especially the higher education professionals working to create healthy and safe campus environments each and every single day.

 Although  the nightly news can capture the best – and worst – of the field, there’s one thing  PepperEyes.com  knows to be true: people don’t function well in fear and ignorance; individuals make the best decisions when they are well informed and well prepared, and offered support, and are confident in their knowledge and skills

 This Blog has LOTS of Tips and how tooo…

 As part of National Campus Safety Awareness Month, We want everyone to make Crime Prevention part of their everyday life on or off campus.

It begins with protecting yourself:

  • If at all possible, never walk alone
  • Stay alert at all times – especially when you are on your phone.
  • If you have to walk alone, walk on well-lighted, well-traveled walkways and plan your route ahead.
  • Avoid walking between parked cars, overgrown shrubs, and dark passageways.
  • If your college has a RAD Class…take it every semester. Repetition makes it better.
  • Carry Pepper Spray or a Stun Gun
  • You are ultimately responsible for your safety and securing your valuables.

Preventing thefts from your vehicles:

  • Always lock the doors and leave the windows rolled up
  • Keep your valuables (especially your electronics) out of sight
  • Do not leave money, checkbooks or credit cards in vehicle at anytime
  • Put your valuables in your trunk or well hidden
  • Do not leave your firearms visible in your vehicle

Preventing thefts from your residence:

  • Make your home look occupied, and make it difficult to break in.
  • Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed. Even if it is for a short time, lock your doors.
  • Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day.
  • Keep your garage door closed and locked.
  • Arrange for your lawn to be mowed if you are going away for an extended time.
  • Check your locks on doors and windows and replace them with secure devices  as necessary
  • If you have an alarm system use it, if you don’t have one, consider getting at least a door alarm.

The most important thing you can do is call the police to report a crime or any suspicious activity. You have to be the eyes of your neighborhood. And remember you can always remain a pair of anonymous eyes.

Running and Jogging Safety, Don’t Forget Your Pepper Spray


What are good ways to avoid trouble when I’m jogging, even if I carry pepper spray?

Here are some tips that will make you a harder target for sexual assaults, muggers and rapist:

  • Pay Attention to everyone, everywhere!
  • Avoid running/jogging at night, definitely avoid Friday and Saturday nights.
  • If possible never run alone. There are far too many drunken young men driving around just looking for trouble.
  • If practical, jog in the early morning. Most rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswoggles, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shot-kickers, scumbags, deadbeats, and slugs, will still be in bed.
  • You may like music when you run, try not plugging both ears
  • If you see people ahead who look like trouble or you get a bad feeling, swallow your pride and take a safe detour, or turn around and retrace your course.
  • Be aware of hiding places and blind corners.
  • Carry pepper spray

Never give a thief a chance!


The title of this article came from something my High School Marching Band teacher once instructed us in the care of our instruments. “Never give a thief a chance, don’t assume because it is in the school it’s safe.” These days in many subdivision and colleges the signs read LOCK IT OR LOOSE IT.  This is very true, as I witnessed something strange this morning. Now was it a theft…I don’t know. It could have been his bike, but lets assume it wasn’t for this story.

I was walking down the street college campus when I saw this tall  male dressed all in black. It was funny he looked and acted like a cartoon thief. . He was dressed all in black, black wool cap, black shoes, and black shades.  He spotted this unlocked bike and had the look of “I hit the jackpot”. He sat on a bench next to the bike looked around to see if anyone was looking and then jumped on the bike and took off.

Since he had that look, I took out my phone and took pictures to share with the campus police.

20160301_084952

The campus police informed me that these crimes of opportunity come simply because citizen will not take the responsibility for doing their due diligence in taking simple precautions.

Each year at the beginning of the academic term, the many college campuses have Bike safety program where they stress the importance of registering and locking your bike. But just like adults there are some student who think they are impervious to crime. They mindset of “It won’t happen to me” is usually followed my “Dang my <fill in the blank> was stolen”.

According to one public safety officer “We had 35 stolen during the 2014-2015 academic year. I haven’t done the numbers for this year yet. About 32% were not locked at all, or improperly locked (ex- being able to slip the lock of without cutting it). Contrary to popular belief, very rarely do we see locks that are being cut. A very large majority are crimes of opportunity.”

This same is said of items stolen from unlocked vehicles, homes and cars.  A lock creates a barrier to easy opportunity, they easier you make it for the criminal, the more likely you will be part of the crime statistic.

Listed below are a few simple suggestions that can be used to discourage a thief from breaking into your vehicle, home or business:

  • Lock your doors (and windows)! If a thief is on a mission, he/she is far more likely to try his luck elsewhere if your valuables are behind a locked verses being unlocked.
  • If possible, remove all valuables from field of view; thieves will search for other vehicles that are easier targets if they do not see anything of value in your car. If you choose not to remove valuables from your vehicle, conceal them from plain view by securing them in a glove box, center console, or, even better, in the trunk. An unlocked door or a pane of glass is not a sufficient barrier.
  • Be aware of where you park your vehicle, or leave your bike. If it is during daylight hours, park it where it is constantly being seen by somebody. Don’t try to hide it because the place you may choose will be a perfect location for a break-in or theft. During the night, if possible, park in an area with a lot of light; light is an enemy of thieves.
  • If you park your vehicle at home in a garage with a door, keep the garage door closed and locked. I can’t tell you how many kids bikes are just left in the yard.
  • Be aware of anyone roaming your neighborhood that looks suspicious. Call your local law enforcement office if you suspect someone is suspicious.
