Anyone in the market to buy pepper spray needs to carefully consider the wide range of options. All pepper sprays are not created equal. A good place to start is by taking a close look at products being used by law enforcement agencies. Chances are if it's a product that they find effective at controlling various types of criminals (including drug addicts, drunks, and other mentally unstable people) than it should be good for use as a personal self-defense spray.
pepper spray that is hot? it is all hot! what you want is a company with a name and reputation to uphold. any brand used by prisons is the best. I worked in three different prisons and the best brand by far in my estimation is def tec - defensive technologies. whatever anyone tells you, do NOT test fire the can that you will be relying on. any test firing disturbs the seal and causes your unit to leak propellant. that is a very bad thing because when you need it you will press the button and the only thing that is going to change is the look on your face.
