    Question Whatever Happened To......

    Chemical Mace?

    Is this stuff still being used, or has it been replaced by OC?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    They have a combined product that has the tear gas and the OC along with a dye. Here is a link.

    Just FYI - The brand name SABRE is a mixture of Military Tear Gas & OC.

    Speaking from the purely LE carry perspective, I have not seen anyone carrying actual MACE since a year or two after I started-over 25 years. I was told when I first started to immediately take it off of my belt, as it made people very angry and even harder to arrest if you sprayed them. I have no idea if that was true, but I do know that they didn't think twice about pranks with MACE (spray a callbox, a car) but nobody messes with OC or plays pranks with it. Either OC is much more powerful or the guys are more "professional."

    Actually there is still a can of the stuff that my dad kept in the house since the early 70's. I don't intend to use it and doubt it would even still spray. has been kept around just because my Dad's old shelf of old his old cop stuff just wouldn't look right without it.

    I was the victim of a OC prank. While I was sitting on the pot I heard the sound of something being sprayed under the door. Needless to say, in about 1-2 seconds I was choking and I had to get out of the bathroom. A police buddy of mine thought it would be funny which it wasn't at the time to "smoke" me out. Now I can laugh about it, but I wasn't to thrilled when it happened. Oh well, at least I understand a little more about the effects of OC.

    "Trust me Doc; You're experience w/ the spray was better than mine... My idiot "Buddies" thought that Pepper Spray "On the Toilet Seat" was funny..!" One of them probably "Still" has knots on his head from that one..! I laugh about it now too, but "Man" back then...

    Chemical Mace is basically teargas...as I understand it you would spray a person's chest and let the fumes sift up into their eyes. Never expierianced it but heard it didn't work too well...

    Having been "gassed" during several chem warfare courses with CN and CS, and been hit with OC during my LE training, I'd rather get the CN/CS any day of the week. OC just bites.
