Pepper spray is a highly effective nonlethal self-defense product. It is included in the standard equipment issued to police officers throughout the world due to its effectiveness an simplicity. It is also available for civilian use throughout the United States with restrictions in only a few states. Pepper sprays are available in a variety of sizes and configurations. Most are small, portable and can easily be mounted on a belt clip or holster, carried in a personal hand bag, attached to a set of keys on a ring or worn on the wrist with strap or lanyard. This means they can be carried just about any where and be deployed quickly to repel an attacker. Larger sized canisters of pepper sprays are available for use indoors and they maybe stored in a drawer, cabinet or mounted on a wall. Some pepper sprays are camouflaged to resemble other objects such as a pen, baton, finger ring and lipstick. Pepper spray may be deployed in a stream, fog or gel. The gel is particularly advantageous because it won’t be blown back to the defender under adverse wind conditions and is resistant to being over sprayed.
