1. What if Pepper Spray gets on me?
If pepper spray gets on you, rinse the affected area repeatedly with cold water. Wash your hands several times and wash your clothes separately for other items. Use tearless baby shampoo to cut the oil resin.

2. Whatīs the best place to keep pepper spray?
You can keep a small one on a pepper spray key chain, in your purse or briefcase, in your desk, glove compartment on the stand next to the front door.

3. Whatīs the best way to carry pepper spray?
Pepper Spray ideally should be carried in the same place every day. A pepper spray holster or loose outer coat pocket is best. A pepper spray keychain is good because itīs usually in your hand coming from and approaching your car.

4. Do I need a pepper spray holder?
If itīs clipped onto the outside of a pocket or belt, it may be dislodged accidentally or grabbed by an attacker. At the very least, it may be noticed before you use it, removing the element of surprise which adds to the effectiveness of tear gas. Most pepper spray holder clip models have the clip on the left side of the canister, which leaves the majority of the canister concealed if itīs kept in the left pocket with the clip out. If you are comfortable drawing the weapon with your left hand, this is a good configuration.

5. Should joggers carry pepper spray?
Any Jogger May Become a Victim Even with Pepper Spray, Each time you run, you may be exposing yourself to criminal elements; criminals who may see a female jogger as easy prey. Even macho men have been attacked or robbed while jogging alone. Some criminals have figured out that a jogger may be too winded to put up a fight, thus, easy pickings for robbery and/or rape. Carry pepper spray.

6. Is there an antidote for pepper spray?
No one has a quick and 100% effective neutralizing agent for Capsaicin, the chemical agent in peppers. Milk, baking soda paste and honey do a good job removing the sting from the fingers and face, but trace amounts of Capsaicin will remain on the fingers even after dozens of hand washings. Ultimately you will need to wait for the skin to slough off the microbes of Capsaicin.

7. Are there health risks for Asthmatics?
For the reason of additional risk to asthmatics, such people who wish to carry tear gas for self defense but worry about possible wind-blowback may wish to consider a formulation which does not contain oleoresin capsicum, or at least a foam type pepper spray which reduces the risk from airborne particles of the agent. This risk of a bad reaction, however, is not going to be reduced for the user of a foam in a situation where an assailant takes the weapon away and uses it against the victim. Also, the possibility of this reaction emphasizes the importance of using pepper spray only in defense of people, not property.

8. Are there other Self-defense Chemical Sprays?
CN, which is an abbreviation for chloroacetophenone was used by the military and police departments in the 60s and 70s but is not used much anymore. These products are not really gases but rather crystals suspend in a liquid placed under pressure to create a vapor. The tear gas products such as the original MACE have proven to be less effective against violent attackers, especially those under the influence of narcotics and alcohol. Additionally, the tear gas products have a fairly long reaction time of three to thirty seconds. CS is short for orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile. It is a micro-pulverized irritant. It irritates the mucous membrane of the nose, throat, eyes, and the skin in high concentrations. It works better than CN but not readily available to the public. Both of these pepper spray ingredients can be toxic and cause serious vomiting, and choking. CN and CS are not all that effective against animals

9. Is there a best way to wash off pepper spray?
Fresh air helps, and washing twice with soap is recommended. Try not to rub! Donīt use a soap that contains a lot of oils, and donīt apply oily lotions--they will carry tear gas particles deeper into your skin and prolong your discomfort. Remove any contact lenses if you get tear gas into your eyes--but not with fingers that have additional tear gas contamination. Donīt touch your face before washing your hands after contacting tear gas. Remove any contaminated clothing, as you may recontaminate yourself from them.

10. What is a basic pepper spray shooting technique?
When youīre ready to shoot the pepper spray, go into a slight crouch with your weight evenly balanced on both feet, if you have the chance. Thrust your non-shooting hand straight out in front of you. At the same time, shout "STOP" as loud as you can. As youīre doing this raise your shooting hand with the pepper spray to eye level approximately 6 inches in front of your chin, aim over your outstretched arm and hand, and shoot toward the assailantīs face and head area.

Keep Your Eyes Open When Firing Pepper Spray
Donīt ever shut your eyes! You may have to correct your aim slightly. You should shoot the spray for 2 to 3 seconds, nether a short squirt nor a long drenching. After shooting your pepper spray, the assailant will normally stop within seconds, blinded and virtually helpless due to uncontrollable coughing spasms. Once the assailant disables, stop spraying. Continue backing and concentrate on getting away!

Where to Aim Your Pepper Spray
Pepper spray should be directed at the assailants face at close range either in a stream, spray or mist and never sprayed wildly at a crowd. The technique to using is simple - keep following the head and keep spraying.

Donīt Stick Your Hand Way Out When Firing
Never thrust your shooting hand out in front of you towards the assailant. He or she may react quickly and hit your hand aside or grab it! As you shoot, back up and continue backing up away from the assailant. This gives you a little more time and draws the assailant into the pepper spray. Good training.

Shout STOP When You Use Pepper Spray
Shouting "STOP" creates a slight diversion. Raising your arm outstretched toward the assailant may cause his immediate attention to be focused on that hand, not the one with the pepper spray. This gives you time to shoot the spray before the assailant can react.

Use Pepper Spray Fanning Technique
What is fanning my pepper spray? Fanning is a pepper spray technique for hitting your mark. You spray the stream then move your dispersions path from side to to side until yon hit your mark! The stream also provides the heaviest blast of pepper (cans will empty faster).

Timing Your Pepper Spray is So Important
Thereīs much more to using pepper spray than point and shoot! Remember, donīt raise, point, and shoot the spray until youīre ready to fire. Wait until the assailant is in range and you know the spray will hit him full in the face area and incapacitate him! The objective is to surprise him or her before they can have a chance to react or think.

Escape is Your Goal, Even If You Have Pepper Spray
If you do end up in a dangerous situation, remember that your number one priority is not to fight, but to escape. Brandishing your pepper spray at your attacker (if he isnīt aiming a gun at you) may be all it takes to be allowed to back away. But if your spray is not handy and faced with someone who demands your wallet, purse, jewelry etc... - give it to them, and get out of there. No possession, however valuable, is worth risking your life over.

11. How do I test my pepper spray?
You should get in the habit of testing your defense spray every six months. To do this first go outside and determine which direction the wind is blowing. Remember to always stand upwind from the direction you are spraying. Depress the firing mechanism for ― second. This test should be performed upon purchase and every six months after that. Be aware that every time you test your spray you reduce the contents of the canister. If you are using a pepper spray key chain model and you test regularly you will need to replace the unit every 18 to 24 months if you follow the recommended testing procedure above.

12. Will pepper spray keep me from being a victim?
Crime victims are frequently chosen because they are easy targets. Criminals prey on the weak or unsuspecting, and usually avoid people who are aware of whatīs going on and might put up a fight. When out in public, look people in the eye, keep your head up, and walk with a confident stride. This tells the predator that you are more likely to see him coming and resist. Without the element of surprise, they will likely pass you up for someone whoīll put up less of a fight. Send the message that youīre calm, confident and know where you are going. Carrying pepper spray will help your confidence.

13. Does pepper spray ever fail?
The inside of a tear gas canister is like a squirt bottle under pressure. An intake straw dips to the bottom of the canister, into the liquid mixture. For this reason, the canister must remain fairly upright. If itīs held upside down while spraying, only the propellant may escape. If the canister is sprayed upside down, it will loose pressure and may not be able to spray when you need it, even though you may be able to hear and feel the liquid sloshing around and you believe the can is full. Other canister failures are possible. The pepper spray nozzle may become clogged with lint or dirt. The trigger may break off. If left in a car on a hot day, a canister may be exposed to temperatures over 140 degrees F. Even if the it doesnīt explode (which it might), this adverse condition may cause a leak or a loss of the pressure needed to fire the device. It could also shorten the life of the active ingredients.

14. When do I carry my pepper spray?
You should have your protection pepper spray with you whenever possible. Hopefully, you will never need it for protection. But if you do, you are unlikely to know when until the very moment you need to grab for it. An awareness of the reality of crime and violence, as well as an awareness of your environment, are the keys to your personal security. Just use good common sense and remember to pay attention to whatīs happening around you, and you will go a long way towards keeping yourself safe. Pepper spray is an important part of self defense.

15. Is pepper spray safe to use inside a car?
Don't ever use pepper spray in a moving vehicle. It will tend to disable the driver with deadly results.

16. Why should I carry pepper spray in my purse?
You ever go anywhere without your purse or handbag? Of course not. Whether you are on your way to school, to work, shopping, or just to visit friends or family, you grab your purse on the way out the door. Then when you get out of your car, you take your purse, itīs always with you with your pepper spray inside. A purse can be a poor location because if it falls to the bottom, the canister is not always accessible. Always carry it in an outside purse compartment. A purse with an accessible, open pocket where the spray canīt get lost may be better than keeping it loose in the bag.

Sometimes women who keep pepper spray in their purse find themselves temporarily switching to another purse to match their shoes, transfering just their pocketbook or wallet to the other purse, forgetting their pepper spray. Also, the first indication that you need your spray may be when an assailant is already tugging on your purse. There were 64,440 purse snatchings in 2000. A pepper spray pager or a pepper spray keychain is a common type to carry in your purse.

17. Is pepper spray effective against a vicious dog?
If a dog attacks you, spraying this dog repellant in its face will cause the dog temporary blindness, shortness of breath and a burning sensation until its effect wears off. The dog has no other option but to retreat; allowing you time to get away. If you jog, take walks or ride your bike, then you should carry dog repellant with you. It is lightweight, easily accessible, and will provide fast protection when you need it most.
