How Test Your Pepper Spray!


We frequently get asked questions about Pepper Spray so we are going to try to frequently post some of the Questions and Answers here

How do I test my pepper spray to make sure it works?
It is recommended that you test your pepper spray when you get it and every 90 days stream-spray-pattern-1afterwards.  Remember Pepper Spray canisters are factory made and thou chances are low, you may have purchased a dud.

To Test your Pepper Spray , first go outside (trust me on this one) and determine which direction the wind is blowing. If the wind is blowing towards you, the pepper spray will blow back on you. Remember to always stand upwind from the direction you are spraying. Depress the firing mechanism for about  half a second.

Important Note: Be aware that every time you test your spray you reduce the contents of the canister. If you are regularly testing a keychain model, you will need to replace the pepper spray unit every 9 to 12 months.

This is a good time to also practice spraying techniques that we outline in our Free E-Book: Things you need to know about Pepper Spray

Does OC pepper spray expire?
How long have you carried that Pepper Spray?  How do you know it will still work, when you need it?   Have you every heard of the term half-life.  Over time things like chemical bonds break down.  This means that pepper sprays (like other chemicals), over time will lose their potency. Which means that pepper sprays do expire. Most Pepper Spray canisters have an expiration date stamped on them.

Please do not try to use use your pepper spray over the expiration date. Although typical spray lives are 2 plus years, we recommend you replace your pepper spray every 12 to 16 months. This is good way to always be sure that your spray is at full potency.

Training with your Pepper Spray


When the time comes, will you know how to use your pepper spray? While it is true that having pepper spray with you is better than not having it, knowing how to use it as well is much better. Let us look at two scenarios

Scenario one:

Imagine if someone is following you, and you feel the uneasy. You have pepper spray on your keys that are in your purse, and the assailant grabs you, and sexually assaults you.

Scenario two:

Imagine if someone is following you, and you feel the uneasy. You have pepper spray on your keys that are in your hands, and as the assailant approaches you, you fumble around trying to finger out how to use your pepper spray, but he grabs you, and sexually assaults you.

While you had pepper spray with you, it really didn’t do you any good now, did it?

Once you have purchased your pepper spray you should experiment and develop practice drills with your pepper spray. Just like in school when you practiced fire drills, you should practice getting to your pepper spray and using it. You should also practice where you carry your pepper spray, if you have it on your key ring; make sure you walk with the pepper spray in your hands. If you carry it clipped to your purse practice getting to it and bringing it to bear just like old west gun fighter. Please keep in mind that if your purse is snatched, you want to keep possession of the pepper spray. Therefore you always want to keep pepper spray close at hand while you are walking, riding a subway, or just standing. If a robber grabs your purse, your pepper spray will be in your and ready to let them have it.

Whenever you are on foot, whether it’s going to your car, leaving a restaurant or store, or out jogging – any time you are by yourself – always carry your pepper spray in your hands and ready you use No matter where you carry your pepper spray, on your key ring, clipped to your purse or on your belt. Know how to get to your pepper spray quickly.

Once actress Robin Curtis said that when she was little, she used to practice hiding in the dryer just in case someone broke into her house. You should think of imaginary situation and learn how to use and spray your pepper spray. You need to become proficient enough to use your pepper spray, quickly and effectively. This is one of the reasons that I suggest that you always purchase two of them, one to use and one to practice with..

The 7 Important Rules for carrying and Using Pepper Spray

  1. Be mindful of your surroundings. Look around and be ready.
  2. Make sure you purchase a reputable brand! Purchase a brand which is backed by ISO 9001:2000 Certification! and has a CHR Rating.
  3. Keep it handy and accessible. Don’t tuck it away in a bag.
  4. Do not put the spray in front of the attacker until it is positioned properly in your hand and you are ready to use it.
  5. Aim for the eyes and spray  in a circle or from ear to ear across the eyes for best results.
  6. Side step the approaching attacker and run away to safety.
  7. Once you are in a safe place call the police.
