You are kidding...right?
Betcha you work for them. Right?

Oh man. That is so TIGHT!!! I want one!!!!
PSYCH!! LOL!! So what happens if the wind is blowing in your direction? Just sayin.
"Unlike other pepper-based products, which can take several minutes to adequately apply and require accurate aiming, the HotShot™ is the only product that instantly releases a large irritant hot pepper powder cloud disabling all attackers in its path and giving you time to get away safely."
Right! And from the literature this is a single-shot ... for $60.
An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. - Robert A. Heinlein
If I want to put a cloud of toxic gas between me and an attacker, I'll just turn around and float an air biscuit in their general direction. I don't need a $60 toy to do that.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
A can of wasp spray does not take very long to aim and with 20 ft range is effective to make attacker very angry while he chokes and spits and rubs his eyes and you run away.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
I prefer more deadly....I'm just sayin
Weather for tomorrow...
Scattered clouds and 'muggy'...

Well, I think the coolest thing is that you can buy pepperballs now. Should make the weekend "Cops VS Corrections VS Firefighters "paintball games a little more interesting.
I'm not to very keen on the Pepper Powder cloud but, I could have a grand ol' time playing around with the semi-auto 5 Shot pepperball launcher.
