I have seen it fail to work, in a training class. One of the women in the class simply did not respond to the stuff. The instructor sprayed her. She blinked and said, "That's it?"

With her consent, he sprayed her again -- a longer spray from a closer distance. She kind of half-sneezed, half-snorted, and shrugged.

He went and got a fresh can and tried again. She shrugged and they gave up.
I'd like to know what brand that was. Not saying that's the only variable, but I'd still like to know.

One can was FOX, the other was a bear grade something-or-another.

Pepper spray certainly isn't the 'end all, be all' of every situation.
I consider it another tool in a layered defence. I've taken a few good clouds of it over the years, I'd say it works on me.

There simply are those circumstances that arise that do not call for deadly force, human or otherwise.
If nothing else, it may give you the time to take other actions or avenues of escape.

Anti gun Democrats are not the problem, the laziness and apathy of the common gun owner is.

I've seen references to a few states' laws to where you can't carry spray and a sidearm at the same time, or you need a separate license for each, or can't carry spray at all. What's the dealio with that?
