Your assumption is being made based on a short paragraph. I always test fire my OC options regularly to ensure that they are in good working order, & to better know their operational characteristics in varying conditions. This also allows me to expose myself to the product to a certain degree
to better know how it effects others.
The concept with the Sabre Magnum (which uses the cone pattern spray) would be to use it with an arm extended outside the car window or in a mob situation. I also carry Sabre's keychain canister which utilizes the ballistic spray for use in close quarters or high wind situations. Knowing the weather & conditions around me, as well as the distance between me & a possible threat, would generally help me decide which option I might use.
This is an aside from the plethora of other considerations one must make in everyday situations...such as identifying alternate routes of escape, what the background consists of should you need to use lethal force in self defense, etc, etc, etc.
