    Talking hurray! Maybe i won't get mauled now!

    Got the ok from work to carry oc on the job!! Won't even allow guns in the parking lot/trunk or any knives whatsoever(unless they are leatherman style pliers) I spray trees for people and Get "surprised" by pissed dogs when they come out of the doggy door when im in the backyard. 90% of the time, the owner is not home and even though we call a few days ahead of time and send them a reminder in the mail, they still leave the doggy door unlocked.
    Have had a couple close calls and lost a few pairs of pants(shredded) Several people from work have been put in the emergency room by dogs in my company in the past few years.
    My Fox oc is in the mail. Got a few keychains(one for the missus) and a 2oz in a belt pouch thingee. Can't wait. always feel so naked. at least now i'll be somewhat covered.

    Good to hear that - it has to be better than nothing by far.

    Just a darned shame your implicit carry rights are being snubbed.

    You need what I got. This OC is in a can with a lever grip thats in a large size container that was gauranteed to run off grizzly bears. I believe it'll reach out to 21 feet....
    I do believe that'll put a hurtin on any dog, but I wouldn't want to try it on a grizz, thats for sure !

    I have never had the need to put it to the test but have been assured that household amonia in a spray bottle is highly effective for repelling dogs.

    You want the " foam " type for puppys IMHO , you have to " shoot better " than the fog type , but they cannot just run thro it either . oO( not that as an officer I ever had occasion to abuse an animal that way on warrant service jobs ) LOL .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Thanks! I've never actually had anyone say that and I have wondered about it. We raise dogs and have other ones come around but haven't (yet) had the need to hit them with my Fox OC. I would much rather do that than have to shoot them.

    The exposed mucous membranes on a dog (nose) make it somewhat more sensitive to OC compared to humans.
