  • Pepper Spray for Civilian's

    I bought a small pepper spray for my wife, labeled "Crime Stopper" from Walmart. She's had it for a few months. I borrow it when I go jogging mostly for the "just in case" for dogs.
    Towards the end of my run I thought I'd squirt a little for a test to see just how far it would go and stream size etc.
    Well I was surprised disappointed - the squirt only came out about 6" and after 4 seconds stopped altogether.
    I couldn't believe I'd let my wife go around with this somewhat false sense of security.
    Is this common with off the shelf pepper spray or what??
    Any suggestions?

      I remember when i decided to spray the one i had on my keys, What a disappointment also. Plus i was down wind and got a good ole blast right in my face. After i stopped crying i could not believe what a dumb A#$ i was. I just threw it in the trash and learned self-defense. I kept thinking about what might happen if i tried to spray an attacker with it. I would end up spraying myself and he would have a field day doing whatever because i was stupid enough to help him out.

        I believe in spraying all civilians who deserve it Of course, if some other LEO does the duty around me, odd are I get a good bit of it as well.

          I was the Captain of my class as I went through the academy. There are Pros and Cons to this rank. One Con was that during OC Certification, I was sprayed 5 times in one night. Oleoresin-Capsicum sucks! Several brands and types were used. I prefer the foam. It really messed me up. It stuck to me and, no matter what I did, I couldn't wipe it off...........I just rubbed it in while trying to do so. I prefer CAPSTUN or FOX. They were the most painful. Spray and Foam. There is no set standard for our department but, I carry FOX myself because, it hurts.
