    Keep in mind when buying, Wisconsin Law: Pepper spray only is permitted, meaning the spray cannot contain MACE, tear gas or UV dyes. By regulation, OC products with a maximum OC concentration of 10% and weight range of oleoresin capsicum and inert ingredients of 15-60 grams are authorized. This equates to between 1/2 oz. and 2 oz. of spray.

    Top brands IMO are Fox Labs and Sabre.

    A good majority of the Fox Labs sprays contain UV dye, which is illegal in Wisconsin, so finding one that doesn't contain any isn't very easy. If you want to buy locally, Scheels in Appleton normally has a decent selection of Sabre and Ruger brand sprays (by the guns, next to the holsters/mags).

    If you want any more info on OC spray check this thread: All about pepper spray.

    I don't recommend this. It only contains 2 shots, isn't accurate, and is around $40-50. Its also a good idea to always test your sprays after you buy them to make sure they work correctly, which isn't possible with this. Just my opinion.

    My favorite OC spray is the ALS Top Cop. Sadly they get all HK about the stuff and make it difficult for non-LEO/mil to purchase. It seems to act more quickly than the Fox to me, even though the end heat is somewhat lower (not that I could ever tell after getting hit with it). It may be worth the effort to buy but with Sabre and Fox being so much more available maybe not.

    FYI, Top Cop appears to be available from Brownells with no apparent LEO-only restriction.

    They also appear to have an OC grenade...

    Cool

    Just make sure you get a container that's large enough to have several sprays in them and have her practice with it at least once and make sure she is up wind and you wash it off well especially around the nozzle area.

    The two depicted below are the Mark 6 .68 oz with clip and the Mark 3 which is the size most LEO's carry on their duty belt. Also make sure what you get has the "flip top". Have her carry her keys in one hand and the spray ready in the other.

    If she has to use it make sure she sprays a copius amount in the face/eyes of the attacker and immediately leaves the area. Fox is an excellent brand of OC to use. I use the brand in the photo because Florida allows a combination formula of OC/CS.

    I don't believe that an OC spray with UV dye is illegal in WI. They refer to OC "mixed with other tear gas substances" as being illegal but the dye is only for ID purposes after it's used.

    Many states restrict chemical sprays that contain other than just the oleoresin capsicum (OC) as the irritant.

    This is directly from the WI gov site http://datcp.wi.gov/uploads/Consumer...erSpray157.pdf

    There's a number on the pdf you can call with questions so that's what I'd recommend to get the straight skinny.

    Thanks Xader. I'm lucky in that all of the channels sell it to me. Maybe ALS has backed down off their high horse, or Brownells just refuses to put up with it. Either way, I'm glad the lesser known product is out there for those that prefer it.
