Pepper Shot Pepper Sprays
These self defense sprays are a 10% concentrate of oleoresin capsicum and are rated at 2 million Scoville heat units and made with a very fine grain that is more effective than the coarser grains of most other defensive sprays.
In addition to causing an attacker pain, pepper shot spray swells the mucous membranes, which makes breathing difficult, and swells the veins in the eyes, causing the eyes to close. These effects last 20-30 minutes and cause no permanent damage.

Pepper Spray Keeps You Safe
There is no question about it that we are living in dangerous times and in a dangerous world. Even if a specific route is well lit and looks completely safe, you simply cannot tell how safe it actually is. Ne'er-do-wells often disguise their true intentions behind a smile and then they attack when a person's guard is down. Unless you are armed, there really is not much you will be able to do to save yourself, friends, or family against a determined criminal.
More Reasons to Choose Defensive Sprays
Some people might say that it is therefore necessary to carry a weapon such as a gun or a knife. However, weapons such as these can often lead to fatal injuries. Besides, you will require a permit for such weapons. There is however one weapon that is innocuous and extremely effective for warding off unsavory characters. What is that weapon? That weapon is pepper spray. This article will discuss some of the reasons why this is an excellent choice as a weapon for protecting yourself.
Easy to Use
The first benefit for using this product is that it is easy to use. Normally when someone unexpectedly attacks a person will need to strategize, think, and make the right move. It will be a critical time and you will not have a lot of time to react. You will want to do something quickly so as to escape. For this reason, pepper spray is an excellent choice because it is simply a matter of reaching into your purse, pocket, or wherever and taking it out.
Easy to Hide
It is also an excellent choice because it is virtually unnoticed by an attacker. In reality, it is a type of camoflage that has been designed to be small and unnoticeable. Manufacturers have years of experience in regards to protection and they understand the importance of how to disguise these small canisters in a way that makes them not even look like a defense object. This will provide you those few important seconds to spray the attacker before he actually realizes what you are about to do.
Then again, if you decide to carry a gun you might shoot someone. You then could find yourself in a lot of trouble. The harm done by a gun is often irreversible. It is also dangerous to keep a loaded weapon on your person or in a handbag. Pepper spray, on the other hand, does not pose the same threat because eventually it will wear off. These self defense products are preferable because they stop the attack and will give you enough time to get away from a bad situation.
Most Importantly - Pepper Spray is Effective
The final reason why you will want to use pepper spray as a defensive weapon is because it's simply effective. Once you spray an attacker, it will cause a severe stinging of the face, mouth, nose, and lungs. The OC formula will temporarily blind the attacker so that he cannot see where you are. He's blind because he can't open his eyes for a long spell. Attackers who have been pepper sprayed will virtually become disabled. This will allow you enough time to not only escape but enough time to call local authorities.
