For me the over penetration issue is one I think about a lot when on my nightly walks around town. It is a case where the laws in my State actually endanger lives rather than protect them. It is legal for me to shoot an attacking animal with my 45 even though the chances of a ricochet if the bullet hits pavement would be high. However a sword cane which would not require anything extra to carry as I walk with a cane anyways is illegal. So the 45 which could endanger people or property is fine under the law but the sword cane which would endanger no one but the animal attacking is illegal.

I have twin 5 year olds and their faces are at perfect height for a disfiguring permanant injury from a dog bite. I have come close to shooting dogs a couple times on our family walks in the woods and if the owners hadn't called them back I wouldn't have thought twice about it. I have a lot of experience with the MSI/Mace brand sprays and I use a small 10% keychain sized one for that purpose at work when I can't be armed with a gun. I like the shape of the container amd the flip-top for use under stress.
Now I was told, but can't confirm, that pepper sprays for SD use contain various concentrations of OC based on the manufacturer, but that sprays marketed for use against dogs (such as the "Halt" and "Muzzle" brand, etc) are limited to a certain low concentration. If that were true I'd certainly stick with a full powered spray.
