How It Works

There are several different types of pepper spray, but the majority of them are OC or Oleoresin Capsicum.  OC pepper spray is an inflammatory agent which causes the eyes to clamp shut very tightly preventing someone from opening their eyes.  This type of pepper spray causes temporary blindness by dilating the capillaries in the eyes.  This effect will usually last about an hour in most cases.  When sprayed with OC the ling tissue will also become extremely irritated.  When inhaled the spray will cause coughing and limited breathing.  Although breathing will be difficult, life supporting breathing will  continue.

How To Use Pepper Spray

Most pepper sprays come in a spray style, but foggers are also fairly common.  When spraying for self defense purposes, aim for an assailants face and with short bursts sweep back and forth.  This technique helps to assure the spray hits the face of an attacker making effectiveness much  more likely.  Do not spray into the wind if it is against you as the spray will be carried by the wind and will likely end up effecting you.  Pepper sprays should be out and ready when in a potentially dangerous situation like walking to your car at night or home in the dark.  Always replace your pepper spray when it expires as old pepper spray loses effectiveness and may not work when needed.  If there is no date on the spray, replace it every 3-4 years just to be safe.

We have a large variety of pepper sprays & Mace to meet your security needs.
