Saber Red and Fox OC are some of the nastiest around. I would suggest that they get a few of the inert trainers to practice, know the distance that it will spray, etc. I'd also suggest a spray with a stream rather than a fog or cone, especially indoors.
If they are not receptive to having a weapon in the home, it may do more harm than good.
I'd look into having a "panic room" where they can go, call 911, and await help as well as practice strong situational awareness and take steps to alleviate crimes of "opportunity ". External lights, dogs, and locked doors will go along way
OC spray doesn't work very well on me, for some reason, but I haven't been sprayed with a variety of them, just Sabre Red, and another foaming one.
Very valid piont, I forgot all about that. I know it burns the eyes and privates like a freight train..inmates are use to oc, most civilains havent had that **** sprayed on them. Tasers-very very effective...
Forget wasp spray. Why does this keep coming up?
There are foams and gels from MSI (my preferred brand) and Fox (highly recommended). You might also look at the ones with trigger-tops that are the size of small (or...not so small) fire extinguishers. The gel styles won't cross-contaminate or vaporize.
I have covered the local prison and jails for EMS calls for several years and I have met people who weren't affected at all by OC.

I'm not a fan of Sabre. I could spray it on my eggs for seasoning! I have seen it fail too many times. Fox Labs, however, is highly effective. I have been sprayed multiple times with both and there is no comparison.

I didn't get sprayed, but having some Sabre dabbed under each eye with a cotton ball convinced me I didn't want to get sprayed.
