WHY PEPPER SPRAY? 


Pepper Spray is widely regarded as one of the most effective non-lethal self defensive measures available. It is extremely easy to use, requires minimal training, and is capable of stopping multiple attackers of any size, without causing lasting physical damage. This is why police and military around the world use pepper spray.​When sprayed into the face of an attacker, pepper spray affects the eyes and mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract, causing rapid swelling of the membranes and forcing the eyes to shut. Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent and not an irritant, meaning that it is still effective on those who may have a high pain tolerance or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s effects begin to wear off anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour after exposure, allowing more than enough time to get away from an attacker or a group of them.
