Recently I was speaking with a friend of mine whom works at a college and she asked me;
“How effective is pepper spray?” She went on to explain that her college was recently expanded and she was offered a promotion. And although the promotion at the newer campus grounds would cause her to move to a different city. She was excited by the opportunity, grabbed it and moved.
She contacted me because this was a far more populated location with a somewhat higher incidence of crime and she was felling unsafe in this new town. She told me she had began looking up pepper sprays on the internet and was overwhelmed, but felt that they seemed almost like toys in their itty-bitty key chain holsters.
“What cute pepper spray things I thought they were.” She told me.
I explained to her that pepper sprays are extremely effective and let her examine a few I had in my inventory. She was very interested and we began thumbing through the different self defense sprays that I offer.
I informed her that defense sprays can trigger an acute burning feeling on the skin and in the eyes. This scorching sensation is disabling and will keep the bad guy out of action long enough for you to get away and look for assistance. For that matter, 10% pepper spray will additionally block breathing by irritating the mucous membranes and make the eyes shut by inflaming the veins in them.
She is such a nice person and was worried that she would permanently damage the attacker, but I assured her that these effects are not permanent and bring about no permanent harm. They simply linger for around 20 to 30 minutes, which should be just enough time for escape.
She was excited to learn that Pepper spray is really a non-lethal tool for self defense. And it didn’t take a lot of convincing once she realized that a small pepper spray is very easy to slide inside a bag, her pockets or to hide in her hand.
She was relieved that she would have the upper hand and be able to catch an assailant off guard. I also gave her some pointers and showed here how easy it was ton grab a key chain pepper spray extremely quickly and begin spraying for dear life.
She decided on the 1/2 ounce Pepper Shot because it features..
- An injection molded holster
- A locking actuator
- Quick key release keychain
- Contains 5 one-second bursts good for eight feet
- And comes in a chose of blue, black, red or pink
I asked her if her original question of “how effective is pepper spray” was answered and She exclaimed;
“I now understands enough to let the appearance trick those on the prowl. Little do they realize that inside every cute pepper spray is a formidable self defense weapon effective at leaving grown guys on their knees, crying out of stinting eyes!”
