I work part-time at a fast food place to help pay for my college tuition. I make an effort to get morning classes only so that I can go to my shift afterwards. Work would end late sometimes, which worried my mother about my safety.
She wanted me to look into available pepper spray for women who are always on the go. The fact that I move around a lot means that I require one that I can easily bring and access as soon as I am faced with danger.
There was a heart shaped pepper spray which I found on the internet. Since this disguised pepper spray seemed like a perfume container, it would give me a way to surprise the attacker. He would not be able to anticipate that I am going to spray him, thus giving me the upper hand.
A pepper spray causes an excruciating burning pain in the eyes as well as on the skin of the recipient. This, in turn, will weaken him for several minutes, hindering him from moving forward with the assault in order that I can get away.
I also stumbled upon a 3/4 oz. 17% pepper spray with clip and key ring. Made up of a high percentage of OC pepper, it was said to be among the strongest defense sprays around. Besides the burning experience caused, hot pepper spray like this causes choking, coughing as well as momentary blindness.
The good thing about key chain pepper sprays is that one can be connected easily to a set of keys. This way, I will not ever leave home without it.
A 1/2 oz. pepper spray with injection molded holster which I discovered should be useful also. A small pepper spray is lightweight and also compact in order that I can conveniently bring it along with me wherever I go. Furthermore, because it can be concealed in the hand, it offers the element of surprise, as well.
Looking around for self-defense pepper spray for women has been an eye opener for me. I now understand that all pepper sprays are non-lethal weapons so I do not have to be concerned about causing damage completely to the target.
