So the shower door installer arrives. When he rang the doorbell, I noticed that there was a package delivered from UPS. As he is bringing in the door and his tools, I am opening up the package.
Inside the box is my order of pepper spray from Spitefire. I pulled out one of the packages, open it up and examine it. I am talking with the installer, now in my bathroom, and "playing" with the canister. I push the button and nothing happens. Then I remember that you have to push the button and push forward, so I do that. Then the canister fires. I actually hit the shower door which was good because that was between the nozzle and his face. The spray fills the air and we both have to clear out of the room because we are gagging and can't breath.
Rule 1: The gun is always loaded.
I just didn't think they would ship it fully loaded. Duh. My bad.
Fortunately it was funny for both of us and nobody got hurt. But I will say that Spitefire is good stuff.
OK. I have bent over. You may commence kicking me in the butt.

Consider it done.......
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
"I push the button and nothing happens."
WHY??? Did you DO that in FIRST PLACE?
Did you WANT something to happen inside your house in your bathroom?
You just made my day today.

Did you think you had to go juice a bunch of peppers and load it yourself?I just didn't think they would ship it fully loaded.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Bet you won't make that mistake again
Glad everything worked out and your installer isn't mad about it.

Hey y'all, what's this big red button for?
Picturing that scenario was the best laugh all week!
I sprayed my spitfire into the air INTENTIONALLY to see what it would do and know what to expect. Also to get the effects of pepper spray. I feel if one is going to use pepper spray one should expect to get sprayed with it.

Oh man I can just picture that, priceless!
I did that once with my Mom's pepper spray when I was pretty young (5 or so). Once was enough.

Sorry, but I've got to ask. The first time you picked up a revolver, did you load 4 or 5 rounds before spinning the cylinder? Glad your both okay.
