Built-Up Tolerance to Pepper Spray?
I think there is consensus that OC affects some people more strongly than others. Does anyone know whether successively being hit with pepper spray on different occasions reduces the person's sensitivity to it?
In other words, will a person build up a tolerance to OC that would cause that person to have a lessened adverse reaction the next time that person is hit? I recognize that other factors come into play (accuracy of hit, amount of OC entering certain membranes, and strength of OC). However, I am interested in any thoughts from LEOs, instructors, or others that may have personal experience being hit with OC on more than one occasion. If so, it may explain why it may not be as effective against some BGs who've been hit with the stuff in the past.
