One of the biggest concerns of using pepper spray is the fear that once deployed, the product may overspray backwards and affect the user as well as the attacker. Of course this may be an issue if you spray into the wind, or if you are in a close quarters area. However, if self defense was an iPhone, there’s an app for that… (Note: These are not actual iPhone apps…)
Typically pepper spray comes in a stream spray pattern and a fogger cloud pattern. There are others, but these are the most common. If you have ever used Windex, or other spray bottle cleaning products, you probably have turned the square shaped head of the spray bottle. There is an off, stream and spray setting. Your pepper spray stream models shoot out in a stream pattern much like this stream setting. You would need to read your package, but most of the stream model keychain pepper sprays go about 8-10 feet. The larger pepper spray cans may shoot the stream in the 12-18 foot range, depending on the product specs.
The fogger models shoot out a fog of pepper spray, resembling an aerosol air freshener, such as a standard can of Glade. The fogger spray pattern is much less precise than the stream model, allowing you to engulf the target in a cloud of OC spray, rather than having to get a direct spray shot to the face. But as you can imagine, the fogger has a greater possible chance of overspray if you are not careful.
Mace Pepper Foam is a 10% OC Pepper formula that contains the popular UV Ultra-Violet marking dye. The pepper foam sprays in a thick foam, much like shaving cream. This OC foam acts like a “blindfold” and disorients an attacker while also causing the same “burning” and closing of the eyes as any normal liquid pepper spray would. The foaming action causes the attacker to want to wipe off, or rub out the foam from their eyes. This in turn, causes the foam to foam up more and grinds the pepper into their eyes.
Our next pepper spray app is the Mace Pepper Gel. This formula suspends the OC in gel instead of a liquid stream, much like a cross between ketchup and honey. Sure that may sound tasty, but this is far from a delicious condiment. This Pepper Gel formulation also results in several advantages, such as a longer distance, sticks on the attacker’s face like glue, less contaminating, and non-flammable.
Both the Mace Pepper Foam and Gel are ideal for auto, personal (walking, running, etc.), or home use. These new pepper foam and gel formulas are one of the newest and most ingenious products available in our self defense spray line.
Our last iPhone-like self defense pepper spray app is another revolutionary self defense product. The new Mace Pepper Gun, one of the most accurate defense pepper spray available.
The super strength OC pepper spray formula is contained in disposable cartridges that can be replaced when empty. These cartridges use an advanced Bag-In-A-Can™ technology delivery system that allows you to spray a constant stream, reaching up to 25 feet, from any angle! Think hand held super-soaker squirt gun, spraying pepper spray.
There is even a trigger activated LED light helps you to accurately aim the Pepper Spray Gun and even momentarily distracts your attacker in the dark. This self defense unit includes an OC Pepper cartridge, a water test cartridge (practice makes perfect), and batteries for LED light operation in the package.
You can also buy extra replacement water cartridges for more practice, practice, practice…
All pepper spray products are inflammatory agents. They will all induce coughing, choking and nausea, as well as dilating the capillaries in the eyes, resulting in temporary blindness. Once you spray an attacker with pepper spray, you should immediately flee to safety and call the police from a safe distance. Pepper sprays with UV marking dye will aid in the identification of the assailant, that is if a blinded, coughing, choking thug flailing around on the ground isn’t evidence enough.
Don’t be afraid to spice up your self defense arsenal.
