Pepper Spray

Pepper spray is a self-defense tool which comes in a variety of different forms from a gel to an aerosol spray. There are also a number of discrete ways to carry pepper spray such as Mace compact and keychain pepper sprays. Unlike other forms of self-defense, pepper spray is an effective stand-off defensive product that will render an assailant immobile through pain.

How does pepper spray work?

Pepper spray effects people by inflaming the mucus membrane and causing the eyes to tear up. It will also make it harder for the attacker to breathe. The body's reaction to pepper spray can last up to 30 minutes and this will be long enough for you to get away or get help.

Are the effects of pepper spray permanent?

No, the spray will also have no lasting or permanent effects on the person who has been sprayed.

What is the active ingredient in pepper spray?

Pepper spray contains the ingredient Oleoresin Capsicum. This is found in cayenne pepper and is what causes the pain associated with pepper spray.

Is pepper spray effective against someone who is drunk?

The benefit of using this ingredient is that people who have been drinking or taking drugs will not be immune to the effects of pepper spray.

How long does it take for the spray to work against an assailant?

The spray works instantly when shot into the eyes.

Can the wind effect they spray?

Many people worry about the potential of the wind blowing the pepper spray away from the target. To overcome this, you should consider foam or gel versions. They are also more accurate because the substance is heavier and shoots further.

What are the different types of pepper spray?

Gel and foam, like the Wildfire 2 oz. pepper gel, adhere to the skin more efficiently than a mist and make it harder for the attacker to get the pepper spray off their face. Pepper mists and gels also come with UV dye, like the Mace Pocket Model Tear Gas with UV Dye which makes it easier for law enforcement to identify and capture the attacker. The dye within the gel will be hard to get off and could last for a number of days depending on the gel that you have purchased.

What sizes does pepper spray come in?

Pepper sprays vary in size from ½ oz. to 1 lb. containers.

Does pepper spray work on dogs and other animals?

Yes, it can be effective against most animals, but you should consider one that is specifically designed for dogs, like the EPA approved Mace Canine Repellent.  There is even a spray specifically designed to be used against bears, like the Mace Bear Spray 260 Grams.

What size pepper spray can I carry in my state?

This varies from state to state, and even city to city, so you would need to check your local and state laws.
