What Are the Important Things to Look for in a Pepper Spray?

In this post we are focussing on the SABRE Red pepper sprays, but there are a lot of other manufacturers of pepper sprays and OC sprays too. There are also a lot of different types of pepper sprays. Whether you choose to buy a SABRE Red pepper spray or another brand, here are some of the important things to consider when purchasing a pepper spray.

Is it Legal?

As already mentioned above, pepper sprays are legal in all 50 US states, but there are restrictions in some states. There are also some buildings and public places that you aren’t allowed to take a pepper spray into. Be sure to check the state laws and local laws before you buy a pepper spray. Also check the rules of any premises that you intend to take a pepper spray into. Some colleges, for example, don’t allow students to carry pepper sprays on campus.

The Range

One of the main advantages of a OC spray is that you can keep an attacker at bay from a distance. As a rule, the longer the range, the better the spray. On the other hand, with long range pepper sprays, you will usually have fewer shots.

The Number of Shots

Shots are usually counted as each half-second spray. The more shots a pepper spray contains, the better the pepper spray will be for defense against multiple attackers.

The Type of Pepper Spray

There are several different types of pepper sprays, each with their own advantages and disadvantages:

Stream

Stream pattern pepper sprays fire a concentrated stream of liquid. They usually have the longest range, and they are less likely to be affected by the wind. They do, however, require an accurate shot to be effective.

Fog

Fog pepper sprays are usually used for bear sprays. They fire pepper spray over a wider area, so accuracy is not quite so important. Fog sprays are very good in situations where you are faced with multiple attackers, and they usually have a good range. However, they usually have fewer shots and there is greater risk to bystanders.

Foam

Foam pepper sprays discharge a foam that is like shaving cream in consistency. They reduce the risk of spraying bystanders and they reduce the risk of the spray blowing back in your own face. However, they are usually limited in range and you do need to be a good aim to hit a target.

Gel

Gel pepper sprays are another type of pepper spray that require a good aim for them to be effective. They usually have a long range and they are very good for using indoors or in crowded areas. A gel spray will also reduce the risk of blow-back.

The Size of the Cannister

The size of the pepper spray will, of course, effect how many shots you have. You should also be aware that some states prohibit pepper sprays over a certain size. Pepper sprays come in a range of sizes. There are small, compact pepper sprays that you can carry in your purse. There are larger pepper sprays that you carry in your hand or attach to your belt. Which type of pepper spray will be best for you will depend on how you want to carry it.

The Safety Features

It is important that you don’t discharge a pepper spray by accident, so a good safety mechanism is an essential feature to look for. These are usually a sliding mechanism, a safety-pin or a flip-up top. A good safety mechanism will be one that prevents accidental activation, but one that also still allows you to use the pepper spray quickly in an emergency.

The Ingredients

The ingredients in pepper sprays vary by brand, but the primary active ingredient in pepper sprays is oleoresin capsicum (OC). Some sprays, such as the Sabre 3-IN-1 Pepper Spray, also contain a UV dye for suspect identification and tear gas. The best indication of the strength of a pepper spray, though, is simply the OC strength.
