    OC Spray for My Wife

    Any suggestions on a good OC spray for my wife to carry? My initial thought is that it should be on her keychain so that it will always be with her, but I am willing to entertain other ideas.

    Fox labs personal pocket spray. If my wife has the van, she has her spray. it's a smaller unit, so less product. But it's so easy to carry my wife loves it. She typically has it in her hand as she walks to her car.

    I would recommend that her keys not be attached to her OC spray. Keys in one hand to unlock the car and OC spray in the other to use if needed.

    The NRA version isn't the hot Sabre Red product the LE use, it's toned down to meet all 50 states requirements. This is per Sabre themselves. The Fox Labs is the full strength.

    Second as to the spray on the keys, most have the remote unlock so it's not an issue. If you still have to use the key in the lock then yup, better to have it separate.

    Don't forget to check state regulations on sprays also. Many have a maximum volume quantity you can carry and some don't allow concentrations of the Oleoresin Capsicum above a certain percentage.

    YOu can jerk the keys right off of the Fox spray. I've never had them come off though. It's a push button style release, but I figure any adult could just give it a sharp tug to pull it off. And from personal experience, if it's not attached it tends to get left if in a hurry. And beats trying to dig one out of a purse in a hurry. Think of it this way, the vehicle panic button is there with the spray.

    I thought the panic button was in her hip pocket.

    Thanks. I've heard good things about Fox Labs. We have keyless entry, so I'm not as concerned about having the keys separate from the spray, especially with the breakaway design. I'm more concerned about her leaving the spray at home...

    My wife and I both carry the Sabre 3-in-1 sprays, which contain OC, CS, and UV dye.

    +1 on the Kimber, the others are more like perfume sprayers.

    I'm also interested in the Mace Gel. A gooey stream, presumably eliminating the back-spray and increasing precision.

    Most companies recommend against untrained persons using the gel or foam since its so easy for the bad guy to collect and return to sender. It requires a direct hit in the eyes and face to be effective and that is not always easy since the bad guys rarely hold still while you spray them. The main use for foams or gels are in an extremely closed in area with personnel that are trained in it's use.

    Another thing to keep in mind is most have a shelf life anywhere from 2 to 5 years. Kimber is 2yrs shipped from Kimber, some reviews on a few http://www.pepperspraycenter.com/blog/index.php?catid=7
