Pepper Shot Pepper Spray

The US has witnessed rapid growth in the popularity of pepper sprays among female users due to their convenient operation and easy-to-carry features.

Pepper spray, also known as OC spray, contains an inflammatory compound called capsaicin. This compound is oil from plants like cayenne or chili peppers. The active ingredient in pepper shot swells the mucous membranes, making breathing difficult.

This pepper spray causes intense pain, burning sensation on the skin, severe coughing, runny nose, and swelling of the veins in the eyes. These reactions cause the eyes to slam shut, but these effects are temporary and dissolve within 30 to 45 minutes. Those being sprayed do not usually require medical attention.

The main effect of pepper spray is causing an attacker pain which eventually rapidly and effectively incapacitates him, giving you some free reactionary time to flee the scene. It is a safe weapon for self-defense that causes no permanent damage to the target.

Pepper sprays have long been used by law enforcement agencies for riot control, subduing violent criminals, and dispersing protestors. The capsaicin concentration of most sprays that law enforcement agents use is 5–10%. A higher concentration results in long-lasting effects.

Pepper shot pepper spray is made with 1.2% major capsaicinoids (MC). Major capsaicinoids are the true heat measure. Pepper shot is an 8.5% oleoresin capsicum (OC) formula made from 2 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) of raw pepper.

The higher concentration of OC contents in these sprays means they are more effective than most other pepper sprays on the market. Moreover, their efficacy is increased due to the presence of a very fine grain of peppers that are more potent than the coarser grains.

A pepper shot comes with a quick key release keychain for swift action. You can easily hook the key ring to your purses, backpacks, car keys, or even belts.

A pepper shot comes in a 1/2 to 2 oz pepper spray hard case with an injection-molded holster. This gives a firm grip to the user and aids in precise aiming at the target.

You can legally purchase a pepper spray online or from the market as it is commercially available to civilians. However, most states allow to use and own made in the USA.
