Self Defense Products: Top Rated Pepper Sprays

Self-defense products are nonlethal in nature and are designed to give you time to get away from a potentially dangerous situation and seek help. The most common self-defense products are stun guns and pepper sprays with personal alarms coming in a distant third. Of all the self-defense products in the marketplace pepper sprays are by far the most widely used and most popular in the whole world.

Stun guns have some limitations on legality in cities and states throughout the country. Pepper sprays are legal in every city and state in the United States, but the post office has some restrictions on shipping them.

There are actually relatively few major manufacturers of defensive sprays in the United States. Mace brand is by far the most universally recognized of all the manufacturers. But others such as Streetwise, Pepper Shot, Sabre and Fox labs have great reputations and are big sellers also.

Pepper sprays are particularly effective for female self-defense and for their personal safety and personal security.

Here are the top four popular self-defense defensive spray products

Another part has a visor attachment that can go in your car. And the third one has a quick key release key ring that you can carry wherever you go. All three have locking actuators to prevent accidental discharge and UV dye for assailant identification.

The second is the famous pepper gun that uses replaceable cartridges and has enough spray for seven shots of 25 feet each making it the longest shooting pepper spray in the marketplace. It is especially popular for use against dog attacks because of its long-range.
