Isn't this like the dinners? Whoever brings it up does it? Sorry Paul. :lol2:

No. This is a totally new precedent to be set here. Therefore he who brings it up is exempt.

I did spray a stream of our Sabre once just for fun to see how it actually sprayed. I just shot a tiny little bit. A few minutes later I could taste it and my eyes were burning a little bit. There was no wind but there must have been a mild breeze or something that pushed some back on me. I know I never want to get sprayed by that crap.

My cousin took a shot from my girlfriends Kimber Pepperblaster (not the Pepperblaster II, just the first one). She bought a II because hers was past the date but we wanted to see how effective it still was.

...very. Needless to say. I wish I had the picture still. He was swollen and leaking fluid from every hole on his face. :lol2:

BTW he took it willingly. With only a slight amount of peer pressure. :shades:

I carry an (Asp) Key defender http://www.copquest.com/21-1400.htm mainly because of the shape and the refill is encased in metal. I have only used it 4 times on 4 different perps....Cats harassing my Homing Pigeons...None of them that got sprayed came back for a second shot.

In the Bail Enforcement Class (Bounty Hunter) I took in Seattle - part of the course was using pepper sprays. We tried on each other:

Sabre
Fox Labs
Cold Steel

There was about 40 of us in the class and over the week we each took a full face hit from each one. (NOT fun. :nilly: )

Hands down the one we all agreed was the most painful and fastest acting was the Fox Labs.

That is what I got for my wife and daughters.

You really can't go wrong with any of them - they ALL hurt like a mother-chicken - but the Fox Labs was HOT! 5.3 million Scoville Units. :oops: No other brand comes close.

cheers

For certification I and my entire class was sprayed with Fox. There was not a guy that wasn't running around like this :nilly: or holding his swolen, red face for 20 minutes or more. I'll call it good. Getting certified is a good idea. Especially when your friends can come watch.

I would gladly be the test dummy for pepper spray. I instruct for pepper spray and would gladly demonstrate the effects for the group.


Any Saturday Friday or Sunday would work if enough people sign up.
