Self defense products offer a nonlethal alternative to deadly force. Some of the most popular ones are pepper spray, which is the most popular in the whole world, stun guns and tasers. The purpose of all self defense items is to give you time to get away from a dangerous situation and get help or just get away.
All nonlethal self defense products do that. The time varies from stun guns, which will give you 5 to 10 minutes to get away, to pepper sprays which will give you 15 to 45 minutes to get away. On average, pepper sprays and stun guns are 86 percent effective.
Each has its own good and bad points. For pepper sprays, the thing I like the most is that you do not have to physically apply the weapon to the assailant like a stun gun. Most pepper sprays have a range of 6 to 12 feet with Mace pepper gel at 18 feet. Thing I like least about it is that when used outdoors it is subject to wind conditions.
The Mace pepper gun is unique in several different ways. First of all it uses a bag in a can technology using replaceable cartridges of 10 percent solution of OC (oleoresin capsicum) spray. OC spray is a derivative of cayenne pepper some of the hottest stuff around.
A spray in the face of OC spray and the assailant will be in a great deal of pain, will probably be swearing at you, will have difficulty breathing, will be coughing and choking, and his eyes will tear up so bad that they may close. Poor baby!
The second thing that is unique about the Mace pepper gun is that it has seven 25 foot shots-more OC spray than any other self defense product in the world. This allows you to defend yourself against multiple attackers. No other self defense product has that same capability.
The third thing that makes it unique is that it comes with a complete cartridge of water. Why water? It allows you to practice getting used to the 25 foot range. I always recommend practicing with any self defense product before you actually have to use it. When the time comes to use it, is no time to be trying to figure out how to get it to work. You need to act reflexively to defend yourself.
It is no overstatement to claim that the Mace pepper gun is the best self defense product for less than $300.00 that you can get. At $64.95 it is a best value. When are you getting one?
A 10% solution of OC spray is illegal in some jurisdictions. So check the internet or your local sheriff’s department first before getting some.
