    My Comments: Who needs a gun? I hope the Anti-2A law makers and Crazy Uncle Joe Biden don't read this. Next thing they will say is that a) Women are too frail to handle a can of bug spray, and b) We need to reduce the capacity of size of Bug Spray to reduce inter-city violence.......... Not a bad choice if that 'is all I had', but not my primary choice.

    ST. LOUIS (WFIE) - Some women in St. Louis are ready to take aim and fire if confronted by an attacker, but their weapon of choice isn't a gun.

    Instead, they're turning to a common household product to protect themselves.

    ....Officials at the St. Louis County Police Department responded to the story saying it's better to use items for their intended purpose and added it's against federal law to use wasp spray for purposes other than what's listed on the can.

    I have no intention of denying people the right to have bug spray... in fact, I kill bugs all the time... but there is no reason anyone needs assault bug spray or cans that hold 17.5 ounces.

    Can you open carry bug spray or does it need to be concealed? Does Milt Sparks make a holster?

    Seems to me using a can of Bug Spray to defend against a bothersome bug whether 6 or 8 or 2 legged seems viable to me.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Bug spray cans will spray as long as you hold the trigger. You can buy high capacity cans and don't have to go through a background check. You don't need them for hunting. Let's ban them!

    An LEO told me that the long-range wasp spray was extremely effective against dogs, although I haven't tested it. I would think that for two-legged creatures bear or pepper spray would me just as or more effective, althought it may not have the range.

    How should we classify a can of pressurized Bug Spray?

    1) Double Action
    2) Single Action
    3) All out Full Auto (Assualt Bug Spray)

    Am I limited to one spray nozzle, or can I have more than 10 on the same can?

    They should redesign the tigger actions on these to make them 'safe, and sane and reasonable' as a Double Action equilivent only can.

    I knew it! I just knew it! The instant they quit prosecuting people for tearing those little tags off mattresses, I knew things were going to get out of hand!

    P.S. I apologize - I lost my head for a minute. I won't post ( on this subject ) again.

    Rule no 1 of hunting...match your weapon to the game you are chasing. If these women want to hunt bears with bug spray, have at it. Ill stick to my .40 cal for the BG's that bother me.....
