View Full Version : Which is the best Fox pepper spray for defense?

July 1, 2002, 11:46 AM
I know, a gun is so much better, but I'm still 3 years away from my CCW. Which Fox labs pepper spray is best for personal defense?

Also, anyone know the D.C. regs on carrying pepper spray?

If you've already decided on Fox, I guess you're asking about spray patterns and can size? I prefer a 2oz or larger heavy fog unit for pocket carry, but Fox doesn't make one that fits that description. :( Fox is supposed to be bringing out a flip-top medium cone unit, which'll be nice. For now, I use either a 2oz Medium Cone Cop-Top unit or a 2oz Flip-Top heavy stream unit when I carry Fox. I also, sometimes, carry BodyGuard LE-10 with the Flip-Top Fogger dispersal.:)

THREE YEARS?:eek: Man, that's a bit excessive
This is just my opinion, I don't put a whole lot of faith in pepper spray , at the very least I would go with a combination of pepper and CS mace; would prefer straight CS mace.

I believe Foxlabs is the strongest on the market today.As far as what kind to get, It may depend on you situations.I carry the compact size in a spray but there are times I would prefer a foam or fog.Perhaps get one of each.I do not recommend the small keychain size like I currently have because the clip will not clip onto any belts without slipping off.

Blast: What do you mean excessive? I'm 18, and to get a CCW liscence in Virginia you must be 21. I know it's a long wait, but what can I say?

Thanks to all for the great advice.

I didn't take age into account, Patriot29. I just jumped to the assumption that you were talking about a waiting period. My apologies;)

Aren't you concerned with the possibility of it blowing back into YOU? Not that this is impossible with the stream, just a lot less likely I would think. I'm considering a step-up from my ASP keyring unit, and FOX is supposed to be THEE choice, correct?
