Pepper Spray can incapacitate an assailant in a matter of minutes and the effects can be severe, causing the eyes to burn and run and difficulty with breathing. BUDK.com carries an assortment of compact and easy-to-carry pepper spray products.
I purchased this item for my wife a few months ago, she stated there were shady on goings in her little subdivision in the Philippines. Last week she had a spat with a tricycle driver outside of her compound, three men had stolen something from her and were planning to injure her (one had the disgrace of punching her in the eye). She pulled out this Pepper spray from her keychain lanyard and sprayed two assailants, and guess what? The three idiots were so dumbfounded and in pain that they called the police and my wife was taken to the police precinct like she was the one that did wrong!!! The police literally laughed when witnesses nearby told them the story and thankfully the three men have since then been arrested and thrown into prison! (after spending overnight in the hospital due to the pepper spray completely blinding them) Without this little wonder on my wife, I don't even want to think about what could have happened that day, but thank god i spent that extra few dollars for it! because it's worth it.
I had some of this and sprayed it outdoors to see how far it would go. Problem was I was downwind. Just the light mist that blew back was enough to have my eyes watering and starting to gasp a bit for breath. Also got the itchy face but no runny nose. I say good stuff.
This will fit in your purse or pocket, and it is quite startling if you're not expecting it! Not much, but it gives you an edge you might not otherwise have. Great for couples, one notifying the other there is trouble to be had. If we're in opposite parts of the property or house, I know to come running should she set it off! It's easier than hey honey, the zombies are coming in the window!
I purchased this for my wife. The size is compact which of course is always a plus and over all a great product. Certainly will have an attacker in tears and down. The only thing that really could be improved is the trigger lock on this item. The trigger on it as is is just a side slide lock but it can really easily be unlocked in ones pocket.
When this stuff means home-defense; that is exactly what it is good for. The only problem with this fire-extinguisher of pepper-spray; is that its a fogger. It sprays out far into a fine mist. And it has a weakness, where this pepper mist tends to float around. Giving you some backfire; this only is amplified when outside.
