Is a Small Pepper Spray Dispenser Effective

This is a question we get asked often.  And, truly, more is not necessarily better when it comes to pepper spray.

Whether you have a large or a small can of pepper spray, the spray is still the same.  And, generally, it doesn’t take much defense spray on someone’s face to get them to back off, hack, wheeze, cry and just plain give up.  So, having a huge can of pepper spray, that, quite honestly, gets left in the car or at home because its too obtrusive to carry is not effective at all.  But, having a small can of pepper spray on your keychain, which generally gets taken with you where ever you go, can be quite effective.

One thing that you WILL want to pay attention to when purchasing your pepper spray is the distance it shoots.  And, yes, some of the smaller ones don’t shoot quite as far.  So, do compare that statistic on the product to ensure you’re getting something you feel comfortable with.  But, don’t overcompensate on distance only to find you have something you won’t carry and won’t have when you need it.

Purchase Pepper Spray Online

For those looking to purchase pepper spray, I believe there is no better way to shop for it than doing it online.  I say that because there are SO MANY choices of brands, formulas and dispensers.  And, one store cannot possible stock and sell them all.  But, by shopping online, you have the ability to find them all, compare them and ultimately choose whichever might be the best pepper spray for you or your loved ones.

I mean, first, you have to find out which ones are legal in your area.  While most areas don’t restrict pepper spray, there are a few who do. So, you have to go through that.  Then, you should look into which type of pepper spray dispenser is best for you.  I mean, you have to decide where and how you will carry yours and how you will get to it if you need it.  Many people think they’ll just throw it into their purse and grab it if they need it.  But, I’ve seen many women look for several minutes just trying to find their keys….and this was while they were not under stress.  Can you imagine how long it’d take them to find their defense spray if they were freaking out?

Once you know how you’ll carry it, you’ll want to research which brand and type is best for you.  Honestly, I don’t think there’s much difference in the brands of pepper sprays, there are various formulas like sprays, foggers and gels.  And, this should take a little bit of time and effort, too, so you get the best possible product for your need.  So, again, to purchase pepper spray online, you’ll be doing yourself a great favor rather than stopping into some store and grabbing whatever they have on the counter.


Michigan Approved Pepper Spray

Michigan Approved Pepper SprayMany people are under the misunderstanding that pepper spray is not legal in Michigan.  However, this is not true.  Michigan DOES have restrictions on what types of pepper spray can be sold and used there, but there are plenty to choose from.  Basically, the Michigan law states that the formula cannot be over a certain percentage, which is 10% of the overall formula.

And, on our site, DefenderPepperGuns.com, we carry not only the Pepper Shot formula which is a Michigan Approved Pepper Spray formula of 10%, we also carry the MACE brand of Michigan Approved Sprays.  They’re available in various sizes and dispenser types and you should be able to find something that you feel comfortable with buying online.  Your pepper spray purchase should be quick and easy as the products which are safe and legal in Michigan are labeled as such.

Of course, we carry all types of pepper spray that are legal in other areas of the country, along with various types of pepper guns which are quickly replacing the pepper spray purchases, because of how effective they are.


Pepper Spray, Fogger or Gel

Of course, the final call is all yours, but here’s a little info on Pepper Spray -vs- Pepper Fogger -vs- Pepper Gel.

Pepper Spray, Gel or FoggerPepper Spray is the one most of us are familiar with.  It actually shoots out as a stream and is pretty easy to aim.  Light wind and at close range, say 5 feet or so, its very easy to hit your target.

Pepper Fogger is a little different.  The fog shoots a cloud of pepper “gas”.  Wind definitely affects it.  However, its advantage is that it almost instantly goes into the attacker’s lungs and makes it a total bear to breathe.  Wanna take someone out quick?  Make’em stop breathing!

Pepper Gel, is my personal favorite, only because its really nasty.  Pretty much the same distance in it’s shooting.  Its less affected by wind.  But, its generally a little more expensive than the others.  What makes it so nasty, you ask?  Well, the natural tendency one has when shot with pepper formula of any kind is to wipe it.  And, when you wipe Pepper Gel, you smear it…..making it much worse!  You just smear the heat.

They all affect the breathing, the eyes, the skin etc.  And, they’re all close to the same cost.  So, again, ultimately the decision is all yours.  But, for the money, I’d go with the pepper gel.


MACE Pepper Spray

mace pepper sprayMACE Security International has been around for years providing protection and security for our loved ones and for us.  The various forms of pepper spray and defense spray is quite versatile.  So, regardless the type of MACE Pepper Spray you need, you’re sure to find it available.

For instance, most people know of the small canisters of MACE Pepper Spray which can be key rings.  But, there’s more….so much more.  There’s the Jogger, which is designed to fit nicely into the palm of an exerciser’s hand.  There’s the Fogger, which sprays a thick cloud of pepper around an assailant.  There’s even the Defender which is a can of pepper spray you can purchase that has a light on it.  As soon as you flip the top to ready your hand to spray, the light comes on.  That’s petty cool.

There are foams and gels, which are really nasty.  Not only do they cover the eyes quickly so whomever you’re shooting at can’t see, the goo is thick and when wipes just spreads the heat and pain.  Most of the MACE brand formula also offers a UV Dye, which marks your subject so they can be readily identified later.  And, of course, for our friends in Michigan, they even have Michigan Approved Pepper Spray Formula.  This is why they are so trusted.  They look out for everyone.
