What to look for when shopping for Pepper Spray.


Pepper-Spray-for-Security-of-Women
Many people take time when picking out clothes, toys, cars, and other products, but will grab the sparkly pepper spray displayed next to the counter at the convenient store.
They hope it will do the job when the time comes.

Having oleoresin capsicum (OC) Pepper Spray and knowing how to use it properly can make you a victor and not another crime statistic.

How do you know if that pepper spray you saw at the Convenient Store will do the trick? How about the cheap pepper spray from the internet site WeSellCheapPepperSpray.com?

What should you look for when selecting Pepper Spray to purchase?   After all your life may depend on it being effective against your attacker

Also, don’t get fooled by some brands that have ads in women magazines.  If you pay a magazine or other media enough money, they will print ads for any product wither it works or not! That ‘s how they make some of their revenue. Let’s look at this example. One popular model brags that their pepper spray is legal in all 50 United States. This is absolutely true.  But what does that really mean?  While Pepper Spray is legal for most citizens to carry in all 50 states, some states have strict restrictions on the size and strength you can carry or buy.

This would mean that means that this brand of pepper spray meets the minimal standard allowed by the state with the lowest acceptable.   This would mean that if the lowest rating allowed is 2% OC that is what this pepper spray rating is.  However, other states that do not have restrictions and so you can have 18% or 23% OC.  Which do would you want a mild irritant or bring on some pain pepper Spray?

So what do you need to know about selecting and buying Pepper Spray?  Information and knowledge.  We are going to give you some information that you can ask the person selling the pepper spray, and if they cannot answer many of your questions, you may want to shop somewhere else.  If you do not see most of the information on web sites selling pepper spray, move along. You’ll also let them know when it comes to Pepper Spray, you are no dummy!

Generally, determining the strength of different manufacturers of pepper sprays can be confusing and difficult. Statements a company makes about its product strength are not regulated, so a company can claim almost anything.  A method using the capsaicin (the stuff that makes peppers hot) and related capsaicinoids  (the class of capsicum compounds) (CRC) content of the product is unreliable as well, because there are six different types of capsaicinoids, causing different levels of irritation. Many, manufacturers do not state which particular type of capsaicinoids are used in their brands.   But don’t worry about this.. we can get you the basics of what you need to know to select effective Pepper Spray.

Remember your life may depend know this information. Don’t worry if you don’t know these terms I’ll help you,

•          What is the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU)?- The Scoville scale is a measurement of the pungency (spiciness or “heat”) of chili peppers and other spicy foods, as recorded in Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on the concentration of capsaicinoids, among which capsaicin is the predominant component. This is usually the rating before the final products are bottled.  Some manufacturers exaggerate their ratings so beware. But in general the higher the number the better,
•          What is the Certified Heat Rating? This is the heat rating of OC Pepper Spray when being delivered out of the canister. This is an independent lab tested rating.  Is this available for you to see?
•          What kind of spray pattern does it have?  There are three types: Stream, Fog, and Cone.
•          How far does it spray? How close do you want your assailant to be when spraying. The effective range can be between 6ft and 25 feet.
•          Delivery methods: Spray, Mist, Gel or Foam

Here is an important tip: Never buy your pepper spray where you buy your beer.
I heard this once and what the guy was saying is are you’re willing to bet your life on Pepper Spray you bought you saw on a shelf without knowing anything about it.

Our Pepper Spray has almost all of this information on our site…because we want you to be Ready and Stay Ready with the best Pepper Spray.

Just what is a can of Mace?


When you go to buy a can of mace what are your really asking for? There may be some 552362confusion in what ‘mace’ you are referring to. Mace has two connotations and the products are not the same. Both products were both used in warfare, law enforcement activities and as civilian self-defense products.  Both ‘mace’ products can temporarily incapacitate their targets. Also depending on where you live are restricted substances.

So what is the difference?

One is a chemical compound and one is a brand name. Once the chemical Mace also under the mace brand was used as a primary self-defense product, however today all of the Mace’s brand products are now are either straight OC Pepper Spray and /or OC /Tear gas combinations or  OC Pepper foam.

MACE (the actual chemical compound) has not been in use for over 15 years.  Chemical “mace” was first developed in the 60’s with an active ingredient called phenacyl chloride (CN). The Mace chemical compound is an irritant that is very similar to tear gas.   However, Mace unlike pepper spray will NOT cause inflammation of the capillaries causing temporary blindness, nausea, make breathing difficult as well as create a very strong burning or stinging sensation.

Today Mace (www.mace.com) is a trademark brand name like Nike, Streetwise, Fox Fire, Smith and Wesson, or Hersey’s and can encompass many types of products, including oleoresin capsicum (OC) pepper spray and/or orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile (CS) tear gas.

In addition, just case you want win a trivia question “Mace” is also a common cooking spice derived from nutmeg.  It’s considered a flavor mix between cinnamon and pepper or a more extreme version of nutmeg.  It is not related to the hot peppers or chemicals found in CS tear gas of OC pepper spray. We threw this in just in case you like obscure trivia.

What is Stream Pepper Spray?


Stream pattern pepper spray shoots like a water gun and is best used outdoors. The stream-spray-pattern-1advantages of a stream or broken stream sprays provide are that it has great distance, generally sprays up to around 10 to 20 feet, and is least affected by environmental factors like wind or rain because it sprays with a higher force, not droplets like the fogger type sprays. Since its liquid based, it reduces the risk of the spray turning back and hitting you.

However, the downside of this type of spray is that it requires more to accurately hit your target and unlike fog or cone require more effort in large crowds. If you use pepper spray streams in an indoor setting, you may risk inhaling some of the sprays or getting splashed.With practice, stream pepper spray can be effective at hitting multiple attackers, or in tight areas, e.g., through your partially opened car window, and helps with aim. The stream provides the heaviest blast of pepper spray (cans will empty faster).

Depending on the brand and size of your stream pattern pepper spray t can cover up to 15-20 feet.  This type of spray is effective, even under windy situations because it sprays with a higher force, not droplets like the fogger type.  A stream pepper spray is less likely to blow back in your direction.

What is Forced Cone Pepper Spray?


This is a variation on the popular cone type pepper spray delivery types and is the best in
most situations. It is a fine mist that comes out of the pepper spray canistercone-spray-pattern in a forceful spray pattern usually at distances from 8 to 12 feet.

Most of the smaller 1/2 oz. personal size pepper sprays are forced cone sprays. The spray pattern is circular and covers a width of about two feet; approximately the size of a human head. The range of the forced cone spray is about six to 12 feet. The spray is a finer mist than the broken stream but is delivered in a forceful stream. The eyes will shut tight and fast. If the slightest amount of spray is inhaled, it will cause instant choking and uncontrollable coughing.

In the latest generation of dispensing actuators, the mist is made up of super-fine droplets of pepper solution. These droplets help to minimize blow-back of pepper spray formula on you while the mist (looks like a heavy fog) penetrates the attacker’s skin pores and mucous membranes for an experience they will not soon forget!. This pattern actually spreads out to a width of approximately 2 feet at its maximum distance. This pattern covers the whole face and is absorbed into the mucous membrane with hot pepper causing the eyes to seal with tears, nose to run, excessive coughing, shortness of breath, etc.

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
