Top Four Reasons Why You Should Own A Pepper Spray
In our story from last year about Everything You Need To Know About Pepper Spray we gave you a brief history of it, described the ingredients and specifications of most sprays and talked about the effects of pepper spray as well as answered some FAQ. It is essentially the bible of pepper spray and well worth your time to read.
Today we will give you the top four reasons why pepper sprays, a.k.a. defensive sprays should be your nonlethal weapon of choice and why you should have at least one.
The first and foremost reason that you should have one is they are the primary nonlethal self-defense weapon for police officers in the pursuit of their duties and by letter carriers for defense against dog attacks: in other words, they are extremely effective. Pepper sprays have been characterized as having an 80 to 90% efficiency rating when it comes to defending against assailants. We always tell our readers and customers to never go into bear country without a bear pepper spray which has been determined to be more effective than a handgun at stopping a bear attack. The only instance where pepper sprays may not work is where an assailant is high on drugs or drunk.
The second reason that you should have a pepper spray as your nonlethal weapon of choice is the cost. The least expensive pepper spray that we carry is $6.75. They range in price up to as much as $399.99 for the PepperBall® TCP™ Launcher that is used worldwide by law enforcement.
This pepper gun can launch a powerful pepper ball up to 60 feet or fire a VXR™ projectile up to 150 feet away. This provides a greater amount of space over almost any other non-lethal self-defense weapon. Plus, once the pepper ball hits within the vicinity of an attacker or even multiple assailants, the pepper irritant spreads out into a 12-foot radius to easily enter the nose, mouth and eyes of the attackers. The powder causes an instantaneous burning and itching feeling in the eyes, nose, throat, and chest, that allows for ample time to escape and get help. The irritating feeling can last up to 15 minutes. The vast majority of our close to 200 different pepper sprays are $16 or less.
The third reason that you should own a pepper spray is that compared to the next most popular nonlethal self-defense weapon, stun guns, pepper sprays are legal everywhere while stun guns are not legal in several states.
The fourth reason you should have one is they are easy to carry and easy to conceal. Many of our pepper sprays are on keychains, so they can be accessed whenever you need one which could be at any time.
So there you have it-four fabulous reasons why you should have pepper spray: effectiveness, cost, legality, and ease of use and accessibility.
