Pepper Spray 101
Due to a rising issue of violence against women, we see many women resorting to carrying pepper spray in their purse or pocket. It is an inflammatory agent. It causes breathing difficulties and inflames the eyes. This will cause the attacker to be put into a situation where they have to deal with themselves instead of you. In fact, when you use this product on someone, it will virtually clamp their eyes shut so that they cannot see it all.
They will also experience a coughing fit that will allow them to only inhale a few small breathes of air. It is not life threatening, but it is rather uncomfortable. Pepper spray comes in a variety of strengths, sizes and Scoville Heat Unit ratings. You should be able to disable an attacker for approximately 30 minutes. This will allow you enough time to contact the police so that they can further deal with your attacker.
You can purchase these in a variety of sizes that will range from .5 ounces - 9 ounces. There's even a Police Sized one! A typical size of 2 ounces is normally enough to protect you from more than one attacker. It is also a convenient size that will easily fit into your purse or clip onto your belt. Besides, a smaller size may be more accessible for you to use if required. Larger sizes are normally only carried by professional security personnel or law enforcement officers.
Besides considering the size, you may notice that some have different distant ranges. You may think that you need a size that has the ability to shoot a spray for a great distance but in most cases you don't. Most sprayings are done when an attacker is in close proximity to you.
A canister that shoots a stream will require an accurate aim so as to provide maximum results. On the other hand, a fogger canister will need only to be aimed roughly in the head area so as to achieve results. It has general directional accuracy.
The number one main advantage for using any type of OC product is that it will effectively, quickly, and easily disable an attacker. Using pepper spray should alleviate any fears you have of possibly hurting someone seriously. Using a canister of is very easy and you will not require any special training. It's point and press. However, if you want, you can use a practice model that only shoots out water.
Even if you miss your attacker, you could still deter them which will allow you time to get away unharmed.
