Anyone have any feedback on this product. Right now we have Fox pepper spray but someone my wife knows mentioned this one to her.
I got one for my wife. The major irritation about it is that there's no way to practice with it without buying two. $100 is a lot for pepper spray.
IMHO you're much better off with a normal OC spray. It's easier to deploy and aim, and it allows for more than 2 individual "shots". The lower price point also encourages supports frequent practice, which is always recommended.
BTW, I'm a fan of Fox Labs too......good choice!
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Some of the nurses in the local ER would carry them in their scrubs if they were allowed to carry weapons in the hospital. It looks more like a cell phone or PDA or calculator or something more than a weapon. I think it carries a lot better than a round cylinder of a traditional spray.
A quick Google search and I found the Kimber training unit for $29.99 shipped.
+1. I carry one and so does my wife. I will carry it into places where it is illegal to carry a handgun. (Provided pepper spray is allowed.) The flat square outline will not create a tell-tale sign that you are carrying pepper spray in your pocket.
God bless our troops!
This is only my opinion...
I was looking into purchasing this product when it first came on the market...BEFORE Kimber placed their branding on it.
The manufacturer had a video demo on their website. Interestingly, the gentleman demo'ing the product fired both pepper shots at a human sized target..and completely missed with one of his two shots.
Having to actually "aim" the spray, while being limited to only two shots, caused me to opt for regular and cheaper pepper spray canisters (even though they don't "shoot" as far).
Does anyone have any experience discharging the Kimber Guardian? How is the accuracy and range? Does it move to the second shot smoothly? The training unit is not reusable, but has anyone tried it yet?
