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.

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.

Which Personal Protection Product is Right for You?


 Okay so you have made a conscious decision to get a non-lethal Personal Protection Product instead of a gun. Now what? Non-lethal personal protection products are gaining in popularity because they are effective against assaults. Martial arts and other self-defense courses are very beneficial to know. However, many citizens don’t have the time to devote to master those skills. Non-lethal personal protection product such as stun guns, pepper sprays, tasers, etc. are a more sensible way to go.

Before you go out and buy a non-lethal personal protection product you should consider some of the following:

Which Product Best for You?
Study and learn as much as you can about each product. Ask your dealer what he suggests. See what device is going to be right for you both on a physical and mental level. There is an advantages and disadvantages to each product which ones are OK for you. For example TASERS can be used at long distances and stun guns need direct contact. TASERS. However TASERS have been known to kill their targets and you get only one shot during an attack.

Know How to Use it
Having a personal protection product and not knowing how to use it can injure you as easily as it can hurt your assailant. Once you have chosen a self-defense product, ask for proper instructions on how to use it, or take a course in using the products properly. Then PRACTICE using it until it becomes second nature. How quickly can you get to it and use it. How effectively can you hit a target coming at you? What if you get attacked from behind, would you know what to do?

Is it Legal in your Area?
You don’t want the embarrassment of being harassed by a law enforcement officer. Take the time to see if you are allowed to carry the self-defense product you have chosen. Your local police department, sheriff and even the internet can help you or check my website for pepper spray laws or stun gun laws.

 There can be only one!
You don’t need to carry pepper spray, a stun gun, a taser, a stun baton, and a stick If pepper spray is going to give you the advantage you need to defend against an assailant, then there is really no need to carry stun guns, or a taser. If you are proficient with a stun gun or a taser, then you don’t need to carry pepper spray. If you really want to carry a gun, then forget anything non-lethal, and pray you hit only your target. When the time comes to use the device of your choice there cannot be any indecision as to which to use.
