The Most Popular Pepper Sprays – The Top Three
Pepper sprays are a little bit different from other self-defense devices such as stun guns in that they are legal in just about every country in the world. Women in India and Pakistan are big users as are the women in many African countries. They are still illegal in some countries but believe it or not, that is changing rapidly as the demand for non-lethal self-defense products increases.
The incidence of assaults on women in several of these countries has reached epidemic proportions and women are demanding a way to defend themselves. Pepper spray is the preferred answer. As a result of this worldwide demand for them, the manufacturers of these products are plentiful and the number of pepper sprays is in the thousands.
They all do the same thing though. They can incapacitate an assailant for as much as 45 minutes by causing excessive tearing of the eyes, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing and pain. Oh my gosh the pain-enough to make a grown man cry-literally.
In the United States pepper spray is the biggest selling self-defense product. The reason for that is its’ effectiveness, cost and legality. It is legal in the entire United States. Some cities and states have minor restrictions, but even those are changing slowly but surely.
Here the top three most popular pepper sprays.
The first one has a range of 5 to 7 feet and contains enough in a 3/4 ounce container for seven to nine shots. It is 46% hotter than competing brands which have a similar number of Scoville heat units a very common measurement of the relative hotness of anything. It is independently tested in a laboratory used by the U.S. government. It has a built-in clip and key ring for easy attachment to a pocket, belt, purse or keys and has a longer shelf life-four years-than most of its competitors. It sells for $4.95 which is part of the reason why it is the most popular pepper spray.
The second most popular pepper spray is used by police, law enforcement, security and military agencies the world over. It has a three-year shelf life and contains 18 half second bursts up to 20 feet away. It has a spring-loaded flip top that protects against accidental discharge.
And the third best-selling defensive spray is an 18% solution of oleoresin capsicum that has a three in one formula that combines pepper, military teargas and a UV dye for marking an assailant for later identification. The canister has a built-in key ring and contains enough spray for 7 to 9 one-second bursts up to 12 feet away.
