    O.C. Spray who makes the strongest?

    Hi all,
    I'm considering carrying pepper spray as a " less lethal" option while carrying concealed, or as another "layer" of defense. I am going to be the first to say I know very little about pepper spray and that is why I've turned here. I'm looking for something small ( key chain size or slightly larger) that has good stopping power. Is there different levels of what I'll call " heat"( for lack of a better term) in the spray? If so which is the hottest and how does one tell? Any insight to who makes the hottest or which is the " better " of the brands to buy. Like I mentioned I want something really strong, after using this, my next level of protection will be drawing my weapon. I'm just looking for some schooling on something I know little about so please be nice ;O)

    I don't carry OC often, but when I do I prefer Fox Labs.

    I'm partial to the Kimber Blaster for a few reasons.

    1) It is pyrotechnically charged (like a bullet), so there is no aerosol to leak or spray malfunction.
    2) It is a gel blast, so you won't end up spraying yourself - even downwind.
    3) Small form factor, grips like a firearm with sights. Accurate even at minimal distances.
    4) Supposedly, it is pretty potent.

    Cons:
    Only 2 shots. Make em count.
    And it's not cheap at $40.

    Do not do what I did and test this on yourself. It is a living nightmare especially on the respiratory system. I agree 100% with the officer playing the inmate in the Vid below I instantly could not see and I really "took it" in the lungs.

    I did some research into OC spray on behalf of a friend & Sabre Red kept coming up as one manufacturer that people seemed to like.

    I have a mid-sized keychain unit of Sabre Red. Its a pepper gel. Wife carries the same thing but MACE brand, which I think is a cone fogger. More vulnerable to wind, but also less chance of missing like my gel stream.

    Best part was that they were only about $10 each.

    I'
    m a Kimber guy, 2 shots and no worries about blowback. Now when I go to Alaska I carry Bear spray so if Kimber was not available I'd go to some form of bear spray. Hate to shoot it indoors though. Really hate that!

    SABRE cs military tear gas/ red pepper is my personal choice. have had to use it twice in self defense that required a less lethal approach. both times stopped the threat immediately.

    I have been lead to believe that Fox Labs is at least tied for "hottest formula on the market" so that's what my wife and I carry.

    I actually disagree ..... I think if you are going to carry it you should be sprayed with it. Yes I am crazy but it really a good point to know exactly what effects oc has. Also, proper technique is not just to spray in someone's face.... Just like shooting a hand gun, technique can make or break your success. If someone is serious about using spray, I always recommend buying trainer that sprays water.... It is a skill that must be honed and maintained just like shooting


    Some people are like slinkies.... There not really good for much, but you can't help but smile when you push them down the stairs
