Pepper spray is powerfully effective, even against all
those who feel no pain, such as psychotics, drunks and drug
abusers. It doesn't matter if the assailant is
large, strong or
macho. Getting subdued with pepper spray will put any criminal down ---
helpless, struggling and totally impaired for up to a half hour or more. This will
give you the time you need to escape and call the proper authorities and
leave your attacker in a very agonizing dilemma.
will not deteriorate with age
if in storage, and it does not cause any after-effects. And since
it is an inflammatory agent, it doesn't work like the irritant chemicals of tear gas or
mace, and isn't vaporous or will not give off a lot of fumes like tear gases. It has
also proven itself as one of the absolute best deterrents against vicious
dogs and for controlling wild animals. And actually,
Yosemite National Park
is now advising all visitors to bring pepper spray to protect themselves from
The reason why pepper spray is so effective
is because one of its ingredients is a natural occurring organic element derived from
red hot cayenne peppers. This substance is called
Capsicum, initialed OC for short, and is an oil that comes out of the pepper
plant. Capsaicin (cap-say-a-sin) is the substance in this oil that
creates the heat. These Capsaicinoids are produced by a gland in the pepper's
placenta, which is the top partition just below the stem. This is also where the seeds are
attached. The placenta is the main core of the pepper and is about 16 times more stronger
than any other part of the plant. So pepper spray manufacturers will harvest the
Capsaicin ingredient concentrated in this part.
Back in 1912, a pharmacologist named Wilbur Scoville
came up with the standard for measuring the power and heat of Capsaicin. Called the Scoville
Organoleptic Test, it was used to calculate the temperature of peppers
used in many pharmaceutical products of the time (such as "Heet" which was used
for the relief of sore muscles, arthritis pain and muscular sprains). Scoville measures
the ground pepper into a mixture of sugar, water and alcohol. Then, a panel of five
tasters sipped the mixture and gave it a grade; it took a majority of three to assign a
Today, the value is done through high technology, a computerized method called
high-performance liquid chromatography. The measurement of heat for Capsaicin is
called Scoville Heat Units (initialed S.H.U. for short). The pepper
scale ranges from zero Scoville Heat Units for a bell pepper to 5,000 or so for a jalapeno
to a whopping 200,000 - 300,000 for habaneros. When pharmaceuticals harvest the Capsaicin
into a pure concentrate, it is around 15,000,000 (15 million!) Scoville Heat Units.
Currently by law, pepper spray ingredients must be
processed and refined to carry no more then 15% of this concentrate, which equals to be
over 2,000,000 (2 million!) Scoville Heat Units. So pepper spray manufacturers
normally make their pepper sprays 10% of OC, with their more potent sprays carrying 15%
OC, the highest formula allowed by law.

Effects of Pepper Spray in action:
You hear about it on TV and the radio, you read about
it in the newspaper. It's no secret that crime is a major problem in the U.S.!
In fact, every 2 seconds a crime is committed, can you
imagine? According to FBI statistics, there is one Missing Child every
2 seconds...one Theft every 3 seconds...one
Assault every 29 seconds...one Robbery every
54 seconds...one Rape every 5 minutes...one
Murder every 24 minutes.
Life is precious. Take control, help prevent
crime. Ready and protect yourself
and your loved ones
against personal attack. What has to happen? Does someone whom you love have
to be violated, raped or killed? Do you yourself have to become victim of assault,
battery or fatal injuries before you think about personal security? Remember from
proven statistics, an attack can and usually does happen to
everyone. Be prepared!
Pepper spray is

when you press on the trigger the spray shoots out far with a
range of 8 to 12
feet or more depending on unit size.

lots, garages, alleys, subways, bus stations, home alone, walking, jogging, running errands, deliveries, and for
house wives, students, daughters, night workers, drivers, law enforcers, sales
people, travelers, security guards, etc., and for anyone alone needing or
wanting extra protection and peace of mind when out and about. Your
pepper spray will be your guardian, your protector, your defender.

"Hi, my name is Susan Miller and I purchased one of your
pepper sprays in June. I had to actually use it once on an ex-boyfriend
that was continuously harassing me even though there was a court order for him
to stay away from me. He use to stalk me so that's why I got pepper
spray. I came home from work on a Monday night and he was hiding on the
side of the house. I was unlocking my door when he approached me. He
was obviously drunk and very angry, calling me names and saying someone should
put me out of my misery. He threw and broke a glass beer bottle up against
my house wall and it scared me, then he started walking up to grab me.
I took my pepper spray and shot it at him from about 5 feet away. He
immediately grabbed his face with both his hands and kinda spun around in a
circle and fell against the wall. He started choking and gagging like he
couldn't breath. He fell on the ground so I ran inside and called
the police. He was taken to jail that night. I'm very thankful for
your product that does what it is designed to do, protect my life!"

"I wanted to share a story that happened to me on my
birthday. I bought a pepper spray from you, it was your 2 ounce unit. I always carry it in my spray holster so it would be
readily available in case I ever needed it. My friends use to make fun of
me, teasing me, and some of them believed pepper spray doesn't work. I
think they were confused with the original mace that came out a long time ago.
Well I know for fact that it works cause it saved my life, literally.
Since it was my birthday, I went out with my girlfriend for the night.
After we ate at a restaurant we went to this fun bar we always liked. We
stayed till about 12:30, then we went out to the parking lot to leave, there was
3 guys close by who looked at us weird. One of them whistled at my
girlfriend, and called her some derogatory names. She told me to just get
in the car, but they started walking up to me like they wanted to fight.
Because of the situation, I already had the pepper spray hiding in my hand.
One guy pushed me up against the car while another pulled out a pocket knife and
demanded my wallet. I quickly sprayed the guy in the face who pushed me
from about 3 feet away. The one with the knife went to strike at me but I
made another spray at him that completely engulfed his whole face. The 3rd
attacker was going to charge me but he hesitated for a second. He was
probably 10 feet away but I shot at him with the spray and it reached him.
He didn't get that much in his face, but he turned around and ran away.
Anyhow, we quickly drove away, scared and frightened, but safe and unharmed."
