I really haven't done too much research on this, since we here, seem to rely on our guns usually.


But, my wife (who has taken self-defense pistol courses and kicked some ass in them), just got a new job. Carrying a gun is not going to work. The area isn't that good, though (it's downtown).

*What kind of "spray" is considered the "best?" (Easiest to carry/deploy, most effective).

*What is the shelf life?

*Anyway to "practice" with it, to know how it disperses and get proficient with quick deployment?

Fox or Sabre Red.

Sabre Red hurts.

Get the stream spray, to much chance of cross contamination with cone spray.

Get Fox Labs 5.3... It tends to be the favorite for self defense, and it hurts like hell. If you look, you can find an inert spray that is excellent for practicing. Shelf life averages between 5-10 years, just look at the can.

Does the Fox stuff have an adhesive in it?

I would say pepper spray over mace. There is usually some kind of "expiration date" on the container when you get it. Having been sprayed with it three times in training during my Navy days I'm not willing to get sprayed with old stuff just to see if it's weaker now. I would however replace it as it reaches the date. You can buy training units that spray water for practicing.

We carried First Defender MK-3. Obviously something on your belt would be the easiest to deploy, simply because its right there at hand. It has a nice cover over the button to help prevent accidental spraying.

It is nasty shit and I hated every second of it when I had to be sprayed. I have seen people that it didn't affect that badly however. Some people react more, some less. I never want to experience it again.

Quite exuberant!


But which one to get? There are 2% stream/fog and 5% foam ones.

There are small keychain models etc.

The stream is what I like as it has longer reach, the fog does not have as much reach and is more sensitive to the wind.

OC.
cannister will have expiration date on the can.

Does anybody even make REAL mace any more? Last I heard it actually did damage to the eyes on occasion, like if it wasn't washed out in a timely manner.
