The moment the college in which I worked grew I was given a promotion. Though it would transfer me to the newer campus grounds in a different city I grabbed it and made the move. This was a far more populated area however with a greater occurrence of crime.
So I began thumbing through self-defense sprays on the web until I chanced on a bunch that appeared almost like toys in their itty-bitty key chain holsters. What cute pepper spray things I thought they were even as they would turn out to be serious business.
I concentrated on defense sprays mainly because can trigger a serious burning sensation on the skin and in the eyes. This scorching sensation is disabling and would keep the recipient out of action to let you escape and look for rescue.
For that matter I was looking at 10% pepper spray which could additionally block respiration by irritating the mucous walls and force the eyes shut by inflaming the veins in them.
All these effects are non permanent and cause no permanent injury though. They remain for no longer than 20 to 30 minutes giving you just enough time for an escape. Pepper spray is a non-lethal gadget for self-defense.
Small pepper sprays didnt take me a lot of convincing. They are easy to slide inside bags and pockets and conceal in your hand to be able to catch an attacker off guard. Plus you can get a keychain pepper spray real quickly and begin spraying for dear life.
I chose a 1/2 oz. Pepper Shot with injection molded holster as well as a locking actuator and quick key release keychain. It consists of five one-second bursts good for eight feet. Also the toy-like holsters are extremely disarming in blue black red and pink.
Today I know enough to let looks trick evildoers on the prowl. Little do they think that inside every single cute pepper spray is a powerful weapon capable of leaving grown guys to drop to their knees and cry out of stung eyes.
