Personal pepper sprays have been around for a long time now, and although their basic design has not changed, the formula used to create them has become more potent over the years. The average pepper spray today can incapacitate a person for longer periods of time than previous formulas, which means that they are more effective at helping people escape from potential assailants.
It's also worth mentioning that pepper sprays are one of the most useful tools for self-defense in an urban environment. It's small, easy to carry and useful for close contact confrontations. They can be used to diffuse a hostile encounter or to simply prevent an assailant from pursuing you. So if you are planning to buy a pepper spray for your own personal use, here are some things that you should know about this device.
Who Benefits From Pepper Sprays?
Technically, everyone can benefit from personal pepper sprays, and not just women and the elderly. It's worth mentioning, for example, that even law enforcement and security officers use these devices as part of their tools. However, personal pepper sprays were originally designed for people who do not possess the ability to defend themselves.
How Effective is A Personal Pepper Spray?
A direct hit from one will usually incapacitate an average person for at least 15 minutes but likely much longer. This is how much time you get to escape from an attacker or to seek help. It's also worth mentioning that a pepper spray can be used on multiple assailants, and so this device remains a potent deterrent even when you find yourself outnumbered.
What Do You Do After You've Used Your Pepper Spray on an Assailant?
Once you've used your pepper spray on your assailant, it's best to make a run for it. Police officers use pepper sprays to incapacitate and then apprehend suspects, but for ordinary people, the best course of action is to retreat. An assailant may have companions and you don't want to take the chance of them ganging up on you. Also, pepper sprays are designed to help you retreat, not win fights.
Personal pepper sprays are meant to help you escape unharmed and any attempt to strike back at an assailant only increases your risk of getting hurt. Remember that defensive sprays are designed to de-escalate hostile situations, and to prevent physical harm to yourself. Therefore, a personal pepper spray should not be thought of as a weapon.
Do You Need to Conceal Your Pepper Spray?
What makes this device very useful is that anyone can use it. You don't need training to use a pepper spray, and you can use it in almost any situation or environment. However, you should also know that a personal pepper spray is not a toy, nor is it something that you should show off to your friends. Your pepper spray is not meant to be deterrent. It's not something that you show off to potential assailants, nor do you announce to strangers that you're armed with one. One of the most important characteristics of a pepper spray is that it is a concealed weapon that can be brought to bear against assailants who believe that you have no means of defending yourself.
